I believe you have my sunbeam...it looks rather familiar and it is missing here in Raleigh.
You are so cute in your pictures.

Mack said...

You are a talented poet!!

How about "Squirrel Spies", or
"Dory's Delightful Den"


Frankie Furter said...

How about calling yourselves...

JD and Max said...

Hi Bilbo - very heartfelt ode, we couldn't agree more!

We have three suggestions for names for your pack! FH likes 'The Cutie Patooties!', Max favours 'The Fluff Ball Three!' and JD is rather partial to 'Dory's Diamonds!' 'cos he thinks it sounds gangster-ish!!

Oh we love us a sunbeam too! Brother Lucky has a bed that mom keeps under this cabinet in the front room. He's so smart and he will pull his bed out and put it in the sunbeam and snooze!

Beautiful Ode on a Sunbeam, Bilbo! We have been so MIA, it's now totally embarrassing. But we have a silly entry pack name: The DB&J Pack. Heee heee hee! We love you all, seriously!

It's hard to compose when you're warm and comfy.

Hi Bilbo,
I loved your ode, you are so poetic!
The names I came up with are:
'Dory's Glories' or 'The Three Amigos'.

We love sunbeams too...they are so relaxing!

Don't quit your day job Bilbo (whatever that is.)

I have another name suggestion... you don't have nearly enough. I've been referred to as a foo foo dog by some (unfairly I might add) and I'm assuming you all have too. So my idea for your pack name is Foo Fighters... but not just because you're cute, little dogs and not after the rock band. I've researched this and there is an aerial phenomenon experienced by pilots at night. Check this out...

Did you read about it? Pretty interesting, huh?
So the name could have a double meaning.

Tank said...

You could also go with Foo Foo Fighters to distinguish yourself from the rock band & pilot thing... actually I kind of like that. Okay. I'm done.

Sierra Rose said...

Hi ya pal!! Ditto on the ODE. Nice sunbeams :)
Can't wait to hear what pack names have been suggested...if we think of one we'll sun beam-it over, ok?

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Kari in WeHo said...

Being a kitty I really understand how a little sunbeam can make you sleepy. Have a good nap Bilbo.

Around here, with it being so hot, it's more an Ode to SHADE! Glad you enjoyed yourself, though, Bilbo!
