Saturday's Critters #10


Saturday's Critters #10

Hello and happy weekend everyone.  It's time for my Saturday's Critter party.  I hope to see you and your critters there too. It has been an awful week here with snow, ice, freezing rain and a day with no power.  I am trying hard to catch up with the post and leaving comments but I seem to be lagging behind. The one day with my power off and no internet service is the reason.  I hope everyone has had a great week. I am looking forward to the weekend...and to SPRING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




Goldie Girl loves car rides, she even enjoys going food shopping with hubby.



Here she is watching hubby put the groceries in the back of the car. 


Back at home, I will see the House Finches visit my feeders. The male is colorful with his red head and chest. Sorry the weather has prevented our usual weekend outings. I am hoping for a decent weekend to do some birding..










 To see more beautiful birds and cute critters

Also please visit:  I'd-Rather-B-Birdin. Thanks to the gracious host: Anni of I'd Rather-B-birdin. Also, sharing with Camera Critters. Thanks to Misty for hosting.

 Thanks for stopping by and  I wish everyone a happy weekend.

Goldie is such a beauty and while I have finches in the summer time they must leave for the winter...such a cute shot of yours :)

Here in South Western PA we did get that ice...I got some nice pics...but maintained power. So sorry that you lost yours ..it is far too cold for that, ugh.

Giga said...

Mój piesek też lubi jazdę samochodem, ale nie jest taki spokojny jak Twój. Zdjęcia kardynała jest sliczne. Pozdrawiam.
My dog also likes to drive a car, but it is not so quiet as yours. Photos of Cardinal is very pretty. Yours.

So sorry about your bitter weather. We are all anxious for spring!
The finch photo is lovely, too.
Hope you enjoy the day. I appreciate you hosting and I look forward to visiting everyone!

Jo said...

Hi Eileen, so sorry you had such awful weather. And sorry I've been absent from Blogger and visiting blogs for so long . I thought I'd be able to post regularly while here in South Africa, but I've been having such a great time just lolling about, catching up with friends and my gardening, that I've posted so little in the past month. Greetings. Jo

Lynne said...

Goldie Girl's sweet face warms my heart! And your finch pic made me wonder why we don't that finch variety here in Michigan. What is the secret . . .

diane b said...

Goldie girl has such a loving face. I hope you guys warm up soon. We have great temps at the moment 82°F.

Irma said...

Hi Eileen, your dog Goldie is so beautiful, the bird is also beautiful.

such a precious shot of Goldie

rainfield61 said...

Both critters are lovely.

You receive such a beautiful gift.

Montanagirl said...

Hi Eileen - Goldie is such a sweetie. Don't feel too bad, we haven't been out hardly at all this winter. There are no deer to see as a rule, no Antelope, and not many birds either. We finally just decided to stay home more, at the price of gasoline.

Karen said...

Goldie is such a sweetie! Lovely shot of the finch!

Mama Zen said...

That second picture is just too cute for words!

A Quiet Corner said...

Awwww..just look at that face! That's enough to melt the snow!!!...:)JP

Happyone said...

Oh you just have to love that sweet face. : )

Stephanie said...

Sorry to hear about lack of power and awful weather conditions. Great shots of Goldie Girl and the Finch. Have a great day!

Kerri Farley said...

Goldie looks sweet - and love the finch on ice! I am longing for Spring!

Betsy Adams said...

I'm glad you are safe.. I can only imagine how bad your week has been. NO FUN...

Goldie Girl seems to love going for a ride in the car. So --hubby buys the groceries???? Interesting.... George would too I'm sure if I'd let him.. But--we usually just go together--so that we can get the RIGHT stuff... (I need his good eyes when reading those tiny labels. ha)

Have a good weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

lina@happy families said...

Cute expression of Goldie Girl. Poor bird in the extreme coldness.
Stay safe and warm, Eileen.

SquirrelQueen said...

Sorry to hear about your power outage and bad weather. We are having snow, snow and more snow tonight. I'm ready for spring too.

Goldie Girl is adorable. I love the close-up.

Christian Weiß said...

Cool dog, he seems to like driving.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Goldie Girl is absolutely beautiful. Good of her to help your husband grocery shop!

Your house finch is a charmer, and I think it's wonderful that you can get even one picture of a bird in your horrid weather.

Take care, stay warm, and I hope it improves soon.

Kay said...

Goldie Girl looks so sweet. My dog Hiker also loves to ride in the car. She doesn't care where we go as long as she gets to go.

NatureFootstep said...

it´s been thawing here for three days now so the snow is almost gone again. Sorry to hear you were out of power. That is not fun nowadays.

Willow said...

Eileen your Goldie Girl is such a sweet looking soul and a beauty of course !

Sandy Carlson said...

Your goldie is a beautiful pup. Lovely post, Eileen.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Look at that sweet face peering over the back seat! Whenever we've been hunting at the grocery store for our pack, Topaz has to inspect all the things in the bags.
We'll all be more than ready for spring this year!

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

Your Goldie Girl is a sweetheart! The weather has curtailed my activities, too, over this winter.

Katarina said...

Your Goldie girl is sp pretty! She seems so content, riding the car!
Happy weekend!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Eileen, I understand about the weather and bird watching. I have not taken any pictures since Thursday due to rain. Your pictures of Goldie are darling! Poor little House Finch looks really cold. Have a good Sunday and stay warm. Hope you do get some birding in this next week!

Delicious photos Eileen. Your dog as a companion comfortably in the car and he looks at you, or he wants to say: Is there something hahahahaha ... Finch is also a wonderful picture with its beautiful red color.
The critters are quite nice to be right on eht blog of those to come.
