Market Day with Duffy and Wilhelmina.

Duffy, " We went to a Farmers Market! There were a few hundred tents set up at this particular open air market. It was quite large and there were far too many things to see to list them all here! "

Wilhelmina, " We saw many interesting items and we also met many wonderful people and their dogs!"

Duffy, " This market had all kinds of goodies from water plants . . ."

Duffy, " . . . to pottery and yummy foodables, to name but a very few!"

 Market humour!

Duffy,     " I saw this bird painting and immediately thought of da tabbies o trout towne . First, because they are very artistic. I'm certain many of you have seen their mesmerizing art . . . but also because they kinda have a thing for birds. Let's just say it's not necessarily a good thing . . . . if you know what I mean!"

Duffy, "I really wanted this hedgehog blanket. We all love hedgehogs here but mean ole LP said no, we have enough blankets!"

Hedgehog adorableness! ( whispers .. . .which I may yet buy if it is there on the next market day . . .  )


Duffy, " I guess I don't mind that much about not getting the hedgehog blanket because the real reason I love outdoor markets so much is because of all the dogs I get to meet and greet!"

Wilhelmina, " I also met lots of dogs and guess what? I actually met another red Standard Poodle like me! His name was Adam. We played together and had lots of fun wrestling! "

Wilhelmina, " I think going to a Farmers Market is going to be one of my favourite things to do in the summer!"

Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

  12. Hi there, Thinking of you today-Wilhelmina is getting big, she must be full grown. I saw Copper today and meant to take pictures of her-she is getting so big. She weighs about 35 lbs now and the family think she is close to her full height. I couldn't believe how much she'd grown in a couple of weeks; Hunter doesn't know what to do anymore, because she can outrun him and tumbles him instead of vice versa. She is doing well in her training too.
    I loved seeing your farmers market-looks like a great place to spend a day.

  14. What a great market! Which one did you go to? Mommy has been going to the Richmond Market.


We always love to hear from you!
