Lunch is late with Malou and Levon.

Malou and Levon, " Lunch is late! The curtains in the kitchen have yet to be drawn. Sigh. Service is extremely poor today!"

Malou and Levon, " What do you mean you couldn't find us?  We were on top of the fridge in our basket! Geesh.  How lame can you get?!! Look up next time!"

Malou and Levon, " We are sorry if we sound impolite! We get cranky when we are hungry and it is the only way that LP will learn!"

Malou and Levon, " Phew. It worked! I think I just heard the pop of a can opening!"

Have a great day!
See you soon.

Esme on her chair.

Esme, " I am sitting on my favourite chair in the cottage. It is by an open window where I can hear birdsong and feel the sun's rays on my back."

 Esme, " I can also look out the window and see the wide, open, blue skies. "

 Esme, " I like to not only look up into the sky while on my favourite chair, I also enjoy looking down to the ground.You never know what itty, bitty, critter might scurry by ; they just might need a helping paw, or claw, or  tooth , which I would gladly provide them on their way out . "

Esme, " All in all, I would say I enjoy hanging out on my favourite chair enormously! Do you have a well-loved chair?"

Have a Terrific Tuesday.
See you soon.

A hike with the pups on a special birthday.

 Isadora, " We went on a big hike into the mountains on account it was what Daddyman wanted to do for his birthday. It took about two hours to get to the very top of the mountain!"

Isadora," Some of the trail was very rocky and some of it was very narrow and steep!"

Isadora, " Can you see Duffy leading the way?"

Isadora, " We passed a small lake on our way up."

 Isadora, " Heehee. Duffy was all pooped out by the time we reached the top but I wasn't tired at all!"

 Isaodora, " That is correct! Little ole me who is much older and who has a bad ticker now was in better form by the time I reached the top of the mountain than big ole, lazy, ole Duffy!"

Isadora, " Of course I had a bit of an advantage! I rode in the carrier LP is wearing in this photo. I must confess I looked positively royal and regal in my portable throne. In fact, many hikers we passed oohed and ahhed over my royalness just as I like it!"

Duffy, " Here is the view I admired once I reached the top of the mountain on my very own without a single lift up from the humans!" 

Duffy, " Here I sort of look sleepy but I'm not! It's just that the sun is in my eyes!""

Duffy, " Oh alright. I admit that here I am having a quick dog nap! It was a wonderful day for all of us. Daddyman enjoyed his birthday very much!"

Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

Sunday Selfies and a birthday.

Isadora, " I am joining our loveable furiends at, The cat on my head, for their fun and sweet Sunday Selfies! This week I am posing with Daddyman in honour of his birthday. We went on a big hike up into the mountains for his birthday. I will show you more photos of the hike on Monday. Today, it's just  selfies  of me and my Daddy!"

 Isadora, " In this photo, both of us had our eyes closed so we nixed it!"

 Isadora, " In this photo we both look a little too blasé!"

Isadora, " I like this photo because we both have little smiles that say we love each other a big lot!"

Isadora, " Happy Birthday Daddyman! We all love you a bazillion! But especially me, your Sunshine."

Have a Sunny Sunday!
Don't forget to HOP! It's a wonderful way to visit old and new furiends alike.
See you tomorrow.
