Flying and Full Friday!

#1 here. Let me start by saying that I am not going away for long this time. I am leaving tomorrow (Saturday) morning and will be back here on Wednesday evening. I am driving up to Calais and then taking the tunnel across to England. I shall doubtless be returning with a car full of stuff for Tommy and the girls. And I am also happy to say that our Aussie friends who looked after the gang in July will be back here for a few days, so nobody will be feeling too bereft!

As it is Friday, let's start with Tommy. We do have a flying ears photo but first, this one I took yesterday morning and which I love:

and now for an outstanding FLYING EARS FRIDAY shot!

On Wednesday, we posted a photo of the gang helping me with work. Here they are in their "time off" mode:

We of course need some close ups of the girls:

Someone was asking the other day if Tama-Chan still got to cuddle with Tommy as it looked like Sei-Chan was monopolising him. Fear not, she gets her share too!

But Sei-Chan does indeed spend a great deal of time with Tommy. They cuddle a lot but they also like to just hang together.

Can you think of a better pillow?

I will probably be able to sneak online whilst I am away, and do some remote commenting, but we will not be posting again until next Thursday, if all goes well.


  1. Have a great holiday.

    Tommy! You are just too handsome. Momma wants to smoochie you. I am going to study the flying ears closely. That is quite a talent.


  2. What a wonderful post. We will miss you guys so badly. We wonder how these Aussie friends always seem to be around when #1 goes away - after all we understand that Australia is quite far away from France...
    #1, have a cool trip! We will be awaiting your return eagerly.
    Love and purrs, Siena & Chilli

  3. Have a safe trip #1! Tom, have fun with your Aussie friends, I hope you get a lot of flying ears fun with them! Ladies, I hope you two get lots of cuddles too!


  4. Have a great vacation! I LOVE the flying ears picture. Our dog has the floppy ears and they fly too. I always say my dog has the best, sweetest face, but not so pretty body!!
    Nice pictures. Did they start cuddling on there own, or did you prompt them and they got used to it?

  5. That is a furry grrrreat shot of Tommy! I khan see why woo like it!

    Of khourse, the flying ears is a khlose sekhond!

    Tank woo fur sharing all the shots and khommentary too!

    PeeEssWoo: Tommy: I just know she'll bring woo bakhk something fun and tasty!

  6. Have a good trip!! At least you're gonna come back with lots of stuff for Tommy and the girls!

    Tommy, we love your flying ears!

  7. Great photos as always. Where in England are you heading. Shame you can't pop in for a cup of tea with us!

  8. So wonderful... all the flying ears, the snuggling. I'm glad that Tama-chan gets her Tommy cuddle time too!

    Sei-chan, you have found a most wonderful pillow in Tommy's great ears :)

    Enjoy your trip #1!

  18. I love that portrait of Tom. He is one handsome spaniel with beautiful ears. I hope you have a nice and safe trip!

  19. hey Tommy & girls, it's nice to see you all cuddley again. we are in awe of your behavior with the kitty girls, Tom. all we want to do with kitties is chase them.

    your flying ears photo is a great one. you are one handsome dog. when we see springers at the dog park we always think of you.


  20. Tommy, you look so grown up and downright handsome in that first photograph...It's portrait quality!

    You have the best sisfurs! It's so nice to see you girls cuddlin' with your brofur-what a happy furramily. Sigh.

  21. It's so much fun receiving #1 comments from across the Channel. We hope she's having a good time! Not long now and she'll be back with you.
    Noselicks for all, Siena & Chilli

    P.S.: Now to something completely different: Does #1 know the Comedy 'Little Britain'? Mom just found out that one of the comedians swam the Channel in 2006. He actually crossed it by swimming! Wow! She's impressed.

  22. Those are all wonderful pictures! We love the one of Sei-Chan napping on Tommy's ear. We hope #1 has a great trip.

  23. We're glad that you have such nice people to take care of you when #1 has to go away. Although how she can bear to leave such wonderful furbabies, we're not sure.

    We loved the pictures of you girls cuddling up with Tommy!

    Charlemagne and Tamar

  24. #1 I hope you are having a wonderful lots of goodies for the girls and Tommy!! We love getting gifts when mom has been away!!

    I wish I had ears like Tommy-mine don't fly like that!!!

    I'm also glad I'm not the only doggie that snuggles with their cats!!!



  25. How wonderful to see your sweet furry faces! We have missed our friends so much this summer but we are now back!

    Tom you are looking as regal and jovial as ever and the girls are luscious!

    Have a good trip #1!

    Purrs Goldie, Shade and Banshee

  26. Oh, I'm just dreaming of what it would be like to lay my head on a Tommy ear pillow! Sigh...

    I think it's ok if you go away for a short while if it means coming back with a car stuffed full of toys, food and treats.

  27. If I could coax Tommy onto my back I think with my speed and his ears we could get airborne!

    We love the shot of Tama-Chan's loooooong legs, snoozeling away.

    Your pal,

  28. Oh Sei-Chan you didn't send your #1 to visit me... I was so hoping that she was coming here to look at my purrty new ribbons in purrson! ;) Oh well I guess momma Isis and I will just have to show you all them in photos on our bloggy...

    Talking of photos I posed for my first pro photos on Saturday and should have the results here next week to show you! :)


  29. We always love to some to your blog. Can you hear Mom SQUEE-ing all the way over here in the US? Because it's pretty loud. hehe

    Your pal,

  30. You all are so cute, and Tommy what great shots of you. Snuggling again. Do you think my mom keeps bringing home cats to see if anyone will start snuggling at my house? Maybe I better start snuggling so she will stop!
    Hope you have a good week and glad you will not be alone while your mom is gone.

  31. Did #1 make it back safely?
