  • Re: Share your Duffy Photos

    I like the idea, but if you were to get it printed onto a shirt, I think the proportions of Duffy are off. Maybe his face is a little too small and the ear on the right (left ear) isn't shaped like the other.
    I think the ShellieMay looks good.

      "Really, bears? You have fur!" (the sequel, 2014)

      Remember last year when I tried to nudge Duffy and Shellie May outside when it was in the 40's and all they wanted was to sit inside and drink hot chocolate, even though I had them dressed warmly?

      Well, today I came home from work to find them conserving body heat like this:



      Tropicolor Teddy and Lo♥ey were late to the gathering so they had to find their own spot.



      I must admit it has been a frigid winter here in Nashville, although nothing like what you in PA and NY are experiencing. Today I came home from work and walked 250 feet to the mailbox and my hands were already feeling it! It is 16F with a negative 4F wind chill!

      I threw another blanket on the bears just to be safe. They have inherited their intolerance to the cold from me, I'm sure!





      Piedmont Natural Gas must be having a big corporate party with all the profits they're making this winter! Even with me (and I'm sure others) conserving (I do anyway, since gas is the one utility that gouges here (not my imagination; Piedmont Natural Gas charges 3 1/2x per therm what Nicor (Northern Illinois) charges)), I'm sure they're rolling in dough this year.

        So cute, JillT! I didn't realize how large your bear family really is until I saw them all huddled together in a group! The more the merrier!

            JillT, your photos are adorable! It's been a nightmare where I live. Me and Duffy have been safe in my dorm room but hundreds of people have been either stranded out on the road or had to abandon their cars and walk in the snow to find shelter.
            On a lighter note, Duffy really wants to walk in the snow but be doesn't have any shoes so I don't know if I'll let him. We'll see

              Immamouse, I'm actually from suburban Chicago and am glad I got out of the blizzard belt. Yeah, between snowfall and brutal cold, you are having according to a news article the 5th snowiest winter (so far, might be worse since the winter isn't over yet) since they started keeping records in 1878 AND one of the coldest as well!

              Kittyloaf, I'm glad you're safe in the dorm. The southern cities get paralyzed easily for whatever snow falls because they don't have as much equipment as up north and what equipment they have they rarely use (i.e., have been living in Nashville over 6 years and this is the first time (one day a few weeks ago) that they even salted (and they don't do the side streets, just the main roads, but this is the first time I even saw THAT)). A nudge of salt would do the trick, but otherwise, the cars drag the moisture on the tires and turn it into a glaze of ice + with the hills it is really treacherous, even if it wasn't an actual ice storm.

              I'll be glad when this winter is over!

                Happy Chinese New Year (the year of the horse) from Shellie May and Zhu Xiong!

                Shellie May let Zhu Xiong wear her Chinese slippers.



                I brought home Chinese food for them.

                Zhu Xiong was elated, but she asked, "where are the Chinese almond cookies?"

                "Yes, that is all she has been talking about today, how Chinese New Year is a holiday, and how she wants Chinese food, and loves those almond cookies," added Shellie May.

                "They were all out so I got you Chinese donuts instead."

                "Oh, okay," they replied in unison.

                I decided to stick with paw food. They got crab Rangoon, honey chicken, and steamed pot stickers, AND Chinese tea to keep them warm.





                Zhu Xiong was so excited she dove straight into the rice, literally AND figuratively. I had no idea she was feeling so deprived.





                Then it was time to open their fortune cookies.



                I told them there were two cookies each so if they didn't like their first fortune they could try again. They were quite pleased though.



                Zhu Xiong's is on top and Shellie May's is below.

                  Cute! I wouldn't mind if I opened Shellie May's fortune...then again, mine never seem to come true. :whistling

                  Dang, now I want Chinese food!!!

                    Shellie May is having a slumber party and invited Sweet Sister, Baby May, Zhu Xiong, and Adelaide to join her.

                    She made up a sign to keep Duffys and Bearami away.







                    Hey, Adelaide, you can’t wear shoes to a slumber party!” she said.

                    “I wear my shoes everywhere. I always have my shoes on,” said Adelaide.

                    “It’s no big secret. We all know you have Cody Simpson paws and we still love you. You’re going to have to take them off if you want to join our party.”



                    “Oh, okayyyyyyy,” replied Adelaide, but then she kept her feet covered!



                    They have Disney movies, nail polish, a ball of yarn to play cat’s cradle, and Shellie May announced, “I have PEZ!”









                    They got all snuggly. Adelaide hopped into a pillow case. “It’s like a built in mattress and a sleeping pouch in one! I got the idea from the kangaroos!” she informed me.



                    Zhu Xiong and Baby May followed.






                    Shellie May has a sleeping bag and Sweet Sister has a blanket and pillow.








                    They’re determined to stay up all night watching Disney DVDs but I doubt they’ll make it.



                    Shellie May's nightgown comes from this shop on Etsy:

                          My internet/phone was out for 4 days and I just got to post these now, even though Shellie May's actual birthday was Wednesday, February 5.

                          Happy Birthday, Shellie May!

                          Her favorite treat is ice cream so I got her two flavors of Ben & Jerry’s.







                          “Come and join me, Duffy and Birthday Duffy! There is plenty to share.”

                          “What are you sitting on?!??! You look ridiculous!” asked Duffy. Birthday Duffy was looking on trying to stifle his laughter.



                          “It is a hot water bottle to counter the effects of the cold ice cream,” Shellie May told them. “Go ahead and freeze your butts off; there is only room for me anyway.”



                          “Use the SPOONS, boys!” I told them as I noticed they were ready to scoop with their bare paws.





                          “Okay, time to switch flavors,” Shellie May announced.





                          It was a very happy day for Shellie May.

                            Jill,
                            hopefully the bears ate all the ice cream...otherwise, it is now soup.

                                Today Duffy did his first Build & Grow workshop at Lowe's! A friend of mine and her Duffy joined me. These workshops are aimed at kids and we definitely got some looks, but we were too busy laughing at how silly we were being.

                                With next week being Valentine's Day, the project this month was to build a love note/valentine holder!


                                All finished! Duffy decided he wanted to give it to Shellie May.


                                Shellie loved her present!

                                  Aimster! I don't remember ever seeing a photo of your ShellieMay. She has such character in her face. She's lovely. I wish I knew about the project beforehand, I could possibly have done it locally. Thanks for sharing.

                                    Thanks. Everyone tells me how pretty my Shellie May is. I got DuffyD to thank for that as he picked her out for me almost 3 years ago.

                                    Check Lowe's website for their Build & Grow workshops for kids. They do them once a month. You can sign up online. Next month I'm doing one at Home Depot as well. Both are free.

                                        Happy Valentine's Day.

                                        Duffy and Shellie May are up in red. Duffy was fumble pawed with his Mickey Mouse sequin tie compared to the ones that just Velcro on but I'm just happy he took the effort to dress up.

                                        Duffy's tie comes from this shop on Etsy:
