Manly Monday

Vidock: Today, EveryFriend, is the very last day that I shall be able to send you studly neighs as I shall no longer be a stud after tomorrow. Sniff... A friend sent #1 this photo of me, taken on Saturday:

I know it looks a bit weird. It was taken with a mobile phone, st some distance. So, #1 decided to include a couple of nice studly shots of me from before I left for England:

Thanks to all of you for thinking good thoughts about me tomorrow, when I have my op. 

Tommy: Poor Big V. I feel bad for him. I of course am a woofie stud but #1 says I am so well behaved that nobody would guess.

Da Boy Chans: We said goodbye to all that years ago and look at us!

Don't worry, Big V. You'll still be the handsomest guy around!

Some Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: Its' been a crazy week for #1. After a dry spell, she is suddenly very busy with work , and Violette is farther away, so going to see her takes more time. The end result is that she has less time to take snuggle shots of us, and we are a little short. I hope you will forgive us.

She did manage to snap a couple of me and Tommy!

She also caught Genji with Tommy!

And Sei-Chan with Tommy!

Here is one of my Beebs with Tommy:

And last but not least, #1 and Violette took a snuggle selfie!

Wishing you all a snuggly Sunday!

SEIturday Score

Sei-Chan: Hello, Hello, HELLO!!!! Is anybody out there? Here I am, crossing my paws that someone(s) will see this post and get back to me. Please?

And if nobody does, well...

Nothing gets past me, you know.

But I DO want to say thank you again to everyone who said such nice things about loving me last week!

Violette Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! Here I am again with lots of news and great photos to share with you!

Wasn't that snow last week something else? We had a little more snow at the end of the week and, amazingly, I emerged from it looking almost clean and fluffy! When #1 came to see me last Saturday, I looked like this:

It was a beautiful day and I gleamed in the sunshine! 

Here is a fun pic of me with my friend Doupette. When he saw it, one friend sent us a You Tube link to the song Ebony & Ivory!

When #1 came back on Wednesday, though, there was freezing rain and it wasn't as much fun. We decided to have a fashion show and they tried out a brand new work collar and harness on me:

She is coming back today, so I bet there is more fun in store. 

Here is a pic of me with my best pal, Samia. Isn't she the cutest?

Oh, and after all that hard work, I of course get my favourite violet bucket, full of grain and yummy treats!

I am thinking you are wondering how the Big V is doing, right? There hasn't been any blog news about him lately. Well, #1 has been doing a lot of thinking about him, and talking with Mr. R and Ms. B who are looking after him at the moment. They have all decided that it would be best for him to be separated from, ahem... his crown jewels. He will not be making any babies as the condition for which he was operated on last year may be hereditary, and she says it's not fair to let him dream big and be frustrated all the time. So, he will be going into a clinic near Salisbury next Monday, and have his surgery on Tuesday next week. We would very much appreciate all the crossed paws and hooves you can muster. It's a significant surgery for a horse his age and size. #1 plans to go and see him soon after.

Tommy Thursday

Tommy: After a couple of days of nice weather, we are getting  little snow and a lot of freezing rain. We have so far managed to get out in between the showers with #1 and are keeping paws crossed that things improve soon!

For Valentine's Day yesterday, I wore my special bandana!

I bumped into my young buddy Merlin in front of their gate:

A couple of days ago I had to take #1 and the car to the garage as one of the tires looked a little deflated to her. It turned out there was a screw (yes, a screw, not a nail!) in it! They were able to repair it there and then which was a relief. So we waited:

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: First of all, I would like to thank all the nice friends who made lovely comments about Sei-Chan yesterday. As you know, she is a very sensitive soul, and she was feeling quite out of sorts! She says she "may" consider doing another post next Saturday.

All of our snow is gone and we had some lovely sunpuddles all day yesterday. I tried out a new dangle, now that I have serious competition from that Beebsy son of mine:

Do you like it? And here, for good measure, is a double dangle!

#1 says that I am a funny girl because I like to eat my breakfast al fresco, even when it's really cold! I think a little fresh air is bracing in the morning!

When I went a quiet nap, the bed in the guest room is just perfect! 

 And here is a photo of me and that son of mine, "helping" #1 with her evening meal:
