Happy Birthday Avalon!


AVALON as a puppy living with her special and wonderful rescuers at, Ibizan Hound Rescue, in Spain.

Still searching for the perfect family while in Spain and now Avalon is ten months old! This photo was taken in her Spanish village in an attempt to expose her to more stimuli, days before she arrived in Canada to us, her forever family.

After two long flights from Spain to Toronto, and from Toronto to Vancouver, it's good to finally be home and to sleep off my long journey!

From the street life to the sweet life!

Wearing Wilhelmina's hand-me-downs!

I have furblings ; two pups and two kitties!

 Happy Birthday Avalon! Hip Hip Hooray!! I now have one more dog in my kingdom to steal food from!

Happy Birthday Avalon! Thank you for taking such good care of my cat toys ;p

I have friends!

 The Sweet Life.

Too cute to spook!


 Me and Nymeria, my fellow Spanish Sighthound and friend!

The tradition of Christmas torture begins!

Always nice and some times naughty . . .

Happy Birthday Avalon! I love you my affectionate, little sis!

Happy Birthday Avalon! I love having a mischievous, playful and sweet little sisfur!

Happy Birthday Avalon! I'm so happy I have a Spanish " mini-me" who also likes to explore and to discover all the smelly stuffs!

Happy Birthday Avalon! Can I just say, I find everything about you fun, fast and kinda tasty?! (especially your jackets! ;p)

It has been a whirlwind two months since my arrival in Vancouver!  I'm having a wonderful birthday surrounded by my family and friends. I love my new life and everything in it, and that would include all of you!

Happy 1st Birthday Avalon! Love, LP, Daddyman, Duffy, Wilhelmina, Malou and Levon,  your ever enamored family who love you now and forevermore.

Have a Marvelous Monday!
