Reunited!

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

In Stone_68’s blog called Stories of a precious Stone,  she talks about staying in Singapore for two weeks, and aside from the happy memories there, she talks about how happy it is seeing her puppy Heidi again!

Heidi has only been with them for 4 weeks, she tells us, and after only 2 weeks of not seeing her, she’s already a little bigger.

You can read more about this happy reunion and how her trip to Singapore went by reading her post! :)

Pet Parrot Saves Family

Friday, October 26th, 2007
Parrot

Pets are such a wonderful addition to the family, they always add that extra something to the house. Like kids that never grow up, and pick up your mood if you’re feeling down. But have you ever considered that they could save your life?

Stories of dogs saving people are pretty common, but this time we have a story of a parrot saving a family from a fire.

AP reports that when Shannon Conwell and his 9-year-old son fell asleep on the couch, they woke up to find their house on fire. The smoke alarm had sounded, but what woke them up was the family’s Amazon parrot, Peanut, who imitated the fire alarm.

According to Conwell, the parrot was “screaming his head off.” When he realized what was going on, he grabbed his son and Peanut and got out of the house.

We should really appreciate our pets, because not only are they great companions, they may actually save our lives! :)

Happy Bear Family

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

This is a cute drawing from Lilybethflame in her blog about a character she created named Pink Bear. Pink Bear is a character who lives in Sanriotown, and she writes about her everyday experiences.

In her post called “My Family“, she describes Pink Bear’s happy family, in a very imaginative way.

She goes on to talk about her mom Mrs. Casey Bear, her dad Mr. Ras Bear, her little brother Brownie and her elder brother Snow. If you wanna read more about them, check out her blog! :)

Edible Spiders, anyone?

Monday, October 22nd, 2007

It’s almost Halloween, and Babsiluv has a happy post for us called “Halloween Recipe and Safety Tips for Animals.”

She shares with us a simple recipe on how to make “Spooky Edible Spiders”. I for one, am very intrigued, so I might try this myself. I don’t think you can go wrong with the ingredients either, chocolate and marshmallows? Yum! :)

She also shares a link regarding animal safety, as many people like to get their pets into the trick-or-treating fun. Safety first, for your pets and for you as well! Only about a week to go before Halloween, hope I get to read about your happy Halloween experiences :)

Learn an instrument

Thursday, October 18th, 2007

They say that a good way to get away from the stress and monotony of everyday work is by learning an instrument. I actually play the guitar myself, and though I’m not an expert, I can tell you it really is a wonderful thing to get into.

In fact, the learning process itself is good enough reason to take up an instrument! And here we have two SanrioTown members who are doing just that.

In Tingal79’s blog, she talks about learning the piano, and from the looks of it’s she’s doing pretty well!

Usually people who study piano want to skip the “boring stuff” and get to playing, but this girl isn’t like that. Good for her!

Also, we have Sarah, who is learning to play the mandolin. It’s not a very common instrument, for a not-so-common genre: bluegrass. But she seems very enthusiastic about it as well, and even wants to go on learning the fiddle afterwards.

Good luck to both of you! :)

For all the animal lovers

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007

Aside from Sanrio, our users on Dream Studio just love sharing cute pics of animals and their pets. Here we have one such video from Dream Studio user mickey1928, called “Cute animal pics”

Personally I like the frozen one best! I’m not even sure what animal it is though. Hope you liked that video! You can leave comments at the video’s page. :)

A Dog’s Happy Moment

Thursday, October 4th, 2007

This is something submitted some time ago by Mikee, in her blog My Foto Me. She shares this simple happy picture of her dog having a blast looking out the window, when she took him out while doing some errands!

It seems that dogs really enjoy looking out the window. I’m curious as to why! Anyway, Mikee has some nice pictures up in more recent posts, don’t forget to check them out! :)

Of Hearts and Hello Kitty

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

It’s often hard to expect people to understand our love for Hello Kitty and other Sanrio characters, and that can be a real sad thing. As for myself, I love sharing the things I love with the people I love! And it’s sad when they just don’t get it.

Well, here’s a girl who doesn’t have that problem! Lutymishima, in her post called “Loving You…” shows us this wonderful gift from her boyfriend.

She also has another post, where she got other goodies from her boyfriend! How sweet of him, it really seems like she understands her love for Hello Kitty! :)
