The past week has been rather hectic in bloggie-land with all the Halloween preparations and various competitions in our cyber-world.
Firstly, I would like to say "THANK YOU!" again to all my wonderful buddies who voted for me in the "AWESOME BLOG AWARD". Mom and I were quite overwhelmed with all your support, votes and good wishes. We really appreciate all your efforts. Some of you really went the 'extra-mile' for us and we want you to know that we are extremely grateful!
It seems that in the end the poll was 19/19, which Mom thinks is absolutely wonderful!!! We'll wait and see how DWB handles the "TIE". Congratulations to Hershey and Husky too on their awesome blog!
Now, about all the Halloween festivities. I must say, we were hugely impressed with all the costumes and party preparations that our friends all over the world were getting up to. Here in South Africa not much happens in terms of Halloween, so it was wonderful to witness it all (from a distance) and to see it all for the very first time. WOW!!! You all looked quite amazing in all your outfits! Thank you for sharing it all with us!
Our weekend was full too. We had the whole family home and had a big Sunday lunch - out on the patio - watching the birds, enjoying the comany and absorbing the sunshine.
In amongst the flowers in the garden, one of my humans found this pair of
They are absolutely exquisite!!!
So, we are really happy to say that "nature" provided our own little Halloween gift - to you all - in the form of these shoes. Take a look...
We would like to know which "fairy cinderella" in cyber-space left their slippers in our garden???
(MOM SAYS: Those little shoes are actually the buds off this plant (above) - the wild rhubarb bush! If you look at the top part of the flowering stem, you will see the buds that haven't yet opened. The 'white' part is what has formed the little 'slippers'. Aren't they absolutely beautiful!?!)
So, I hope you are now asking, "What sort of weekend did the dogs have?"
I can happily report that we had a wonderful time with the family! On Saturday morning mom gave us all baths and brushes. Us dogs always enjoy our grooming - except for TOMMY, who is old and really doesn't like it.
Anyway, once we were all spruced up, it was the inevitable photo-session.
Eish, Mom and that flashy beast!!!
One of the girls had granted us 'biscuit time'.
The nice thing about having the girls and their boyfriends around is that we can sneak in EXTRA WALKS!!! ...and we had so many this weekend! (I'm NOT complaining!)
Mom tried to get a close-up picture for you. It's a bit blurry, but you can get an idea of their pretty blossoms. By the way, these little blossoms are quite a road hazzard since they make the roads extremely slippery!
Anyway, after that full weekend, I am now tired...
