Mom likes watching crazy TV shows....things like Intervention, Swamp People (CHOOT IT!) and now, Hoarders.

It makes her either:

A. Feel really good about our house

B. Have the need to clean somehting

While watching last night's episode, mom said "I'm so glad we got rid of any clutter we had when we redid the house!" But then as she looked at me she got a weird look on her face....

"Anna, my darling, you have have a hoarding problem...."


I don't know what you're talking about!

I know them all by name!!!

I think you're just jealous!!!

I know I'm not a hoarder! I can't even compete with Buttons who has the most impressive toy stash in the WORLD!

Mom stated this pile doesn't include my outdoor toys or the countless number of socks and underpants I run around with....pffft. Whatever woman!! Now go out and buy me something!!!!


  1. There is NO SUCH THING as too many toys!!

    Dory, Jacob and Bilbo

  2. I agree - there is no such thing as too many toys and NO toy should ever be thrown away - no matter how grungy it gets - but that is a lot of toys - can we come and play???

  3. That Busy Buttons do be the queen of squeakie toy hoarding but you is doing her proud there, Anna. Howefur, I would not let Buttons see your stash or she mite swipey it. Just woofin. And you mite not want to let your mom watch that Dr. Phil on the televishun or she mite try to get you on his show fur hoarding cures or something horribulls like that.

  4. Now see there is a difference between YOU and those Peeps that Hoard.. THEY keep USELESS stuffs and YOU only have a nice COLLECTION of VERY VERY useful TOYS!!! OK????

  5. Oh, Anna - how can you be a hoarder if you hardly have any toys? :) We think you need MORE toys!!

    - Starbuck, Nari and Alpha

  6. Same here!!! She blames us. All we need is a bigger toy box

  7. Obviously the problem is the room is too small for your toy stash. We are very sure that you needs more toys and perhaps a bigger house to keep them in.

  8. There must be a conspiracy! We have the same problem! And don't even ask how all our toys get out into the middle of the living room!

    Woofs & hugs,

    ~Bailey (Yep, I'm a girl!)

  9. Anna, you need all of the toys!! More is better!!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

  10. Oh...those look like some really good squeakies you got there!!! I should have Mom take a picture of me with my toys. Well, if I could get 'em all to fit in the picture... *snickers*

    I do love my squeakies! And some people would call me a hoarder for sure. But, Mom says that her spoiling me with toys is just her way to make up for the bad stuff I went through before she adopted me. Works for me!

  11. A princess can never have too many trinkets - so says Ciara. And don't toys count as trinkets?

    Our Dad loves to watch Hoarders too:)

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  12. Now that is a great stash of toys! I think your mom is just talking crazy talk! You might want to consider hiding some of those someplace, just in case...


  13. What a cool collection you have got, Anna! But I think you still need more to make that pile bigger and higher, it's time for your mom to start shopping again!! Don't women like shopping???

  14. Hoarder? No way - I like to think of it as a toy connoisseur. An appreciator of the finer things, if you will. Matt would disagree with me, though. I got the old "no new toys until some get thrown out" ultimatum again. Silly Matt. I will have to post pics of the cute blue squeaker ball she got on "ultimatum day" ;)

    Does Anna really know them by name? We discovered Nyxie can differentiate between her toys with better than average reliability. Pretty impressive, I think.

  15. Hey Anna!
    Wow, I totally agree! Nothing wrong with your collection...not a hoard...a collection! A bigger toy box will solve that problem. I think it would be most ungrateful not to keep and appreciate all pressies!! BWAR HAR HAR
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  16. LOL! How cute you look Anna, in that big pile of toys! Lady wants to know if she can play with that spotted green snake one?

  17. wow! you really had a lot of stuff toys! :)

  18. Anna, we watch Swamp People at our house, too. We cringe and laugh ... at the same time.

  19. My Chester thinks there is no such thing as too much underwear to run around with :)
