FFHT and Flashback Friday with Greta & Garfield

Today we are joining in Fractured Fryday Hairy Tales 
hosted by Murphy & Stanley

This month's line to include is 
That was the first time I ever ....

You saw on Monday that I kinda beat up on Garfield 
and Mom took him away from me

It seems that Mom used to be a collector of Garfield stuff 
(some of our friends may already know this)
We even have a Garfield Room which you can read about here if you like

Then Mom told me that Angel Greta 
chose the Garfield Cat bed to be her toy box 
when she was just a wee pup.

Let's flashback to a post from October 2012

The Adventures of ..............

"Naughty" Greta

Everyone needs a cool place to keep their toys, right??
This was the toy box when I joined the family.

It had room for toys and puppy size me, but would I still fit as I grew bigger?
Besides it didn't really match my "naughty" style.
I needed something with more attitude.

And who has more attitude than
Garfield the Cat

I measured carefully

Yep! I think this will work just fine!!

Well furiends... 

That was the first time I ever

heard of a pug dog
using a cat bed
as a toy box!!!

Mom told me Greta liked to sit in Garfield 
when she was little

And even when she had grown bigger

Angel Greta loved her Garfield Cat Bed/Toy Box

OMD that is just so adorable - certainly a gal apart, was Gretel - how good that mum told you the story and you were able to pass it on to us Mabel. A lovely 'first' story! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

Mark Muller said...

it's like a miracle that a dog can sit in a cat... and I bet Garfield would like the idea... do you think he would try this with his frenemy Odie?

Amber DaWeenie said...

Looks like the purrrr-fect size fur a Pug. Wonder if it would fit a Weenie dog too? :)

Hap-Pee Weekend!

We think Greta was a very smart pup to know that Garfield was going to be a very comfy spot for her to snooze. She just looks so sweet in there. Thanks for the flashback.

Mabel I bet you and Greta would have been the bestest sisters ever. I am glad you Mommy can share those memories with you and all of us. Why us dogs do so much good by just looking at us we make our humans feel happier.
Thanks for being a friend
