Happy Memorial Day everybody! Today we are playing along with Sarge, and we have our peeps-on-parade!

Our peeps are total animal lovers! (Thank dog). Mom has had a Rottweiler, Australian Shepherd, mixed cocker, and dad has had Juanita (our cockatoo) for almost 13 years now! Mom had a pair of sugar gliders who had 4 babies. Cool huh? Mom has also had an Oriental Shorthair and Siamese. I'm probably the best of her pets, wouldn't you agree?

Currently on her want list is:
1. Doberman Pinscher
2. Boxer
3. Siamese or Sphynx (I'm really rootin for this one!)
4. Every other breed (feline/canine) out there

Here's a pic of our mom and dad when they got married 14 years ago. Somebody had the right idea about wedding presents!

Mom saw this at church yesterday and thought you might enjoy it: (You may have to biggify it):

THANK YOU to our soldiers!!!

And here's a mini-contest for you guys today.

Who-ever can guess first where my name came from (MACK), mom will donate $$ to ASPCA Flood victims in their name. Khyra, we know you know this one!!!

Hey Mack!
Wow, what a great P.O.P. entry! Sounds like your peeps are definitely grrrreat humans since they love all critters so much. I bet the cockatoo is fun to live with. Great pix of them and I agree that the gift is perfect for them. Thanks so much for pawticipating and letting us all get to know your hu-pack better.
As for your name, I think it is for:
Since you are all of these things, the must have strung them together to make your I right??!!
I hope I'll see you at Pip's superhero party today.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge / Hong Kong Phooey


I wouldn't guess this except it is memorial day, so I will say you were named after General MacArthur.

You have very special wonderful peeps! Thanks for sharing a bit about them and that great photo! Are you named after a certain Big McHamburger?

Kitty+Coco said...

LOVE the pic of your pawrents! Funny stuff. I think you were named Mack as a knickname for Mack Daddy, as in a pup who has game and good looks. Makes sense to me!

My mum wants a frenchie..good grief with the smush noses.
