Manly Monday!

: It is getting colder. The countryside was all white with frost this morning and #1 finally broke down and turned on the heating! We are hunkering down for the winter but also hoping it won't be as harsh as last year's.

Hunting season is in full swing. I am a hunting dog, bred to "spring" birds but, as you know, I love everyone and would never dream of harming a bird or any other creature. Still, I decided I would try my paw at camouflage. What do you think?

No idea why #1 wouldn't stop laughing as she took the photo...

On the subject of manliness, here is another fetching photo for you!

We discovered it when we were visiting friends and my ball went downstream, and I was looking for something else to play with. Isn't it just fabulous?

And of course, a field shot of my manly self:

Bibi-Chan: Greetings everyone. The Bibi here! Life is good for me these days. I am getting lots and lots of cuddles, and it is making me smile!

I love to sit next to #1 in the evenings, when she watches TV!

I am also trying to take over where Yuu-Chan left off and help her with the ironing...

I really don't understand why she doesn't appreciate my efforts which she describes as "de-ironing."

Sigh... Well, I still have my bed privileges, and that is becoming more and more important as the temperatures drop!

By the way, this is our first post to come to you from the new laptop!!!

Happy Monday, everyone! We will leave with an early morning photo #1 took from the fields when she and Tommy were out this morning:


  1. Camouflage: you are doing it (sort of) right!

    How cool that you found an Aerobie! That is a fun toy.

  2. That's a great disguise, Tommy!

    Beebs, you are looking so very manly these days.

  3. Tommy, you look like you have been rooting for truffles in your camo photo!

    Glad you are all warm and settling in for Winter. Bibi, those warm clothes freshly ironed must be very nice to sit on and "de-iron".


  4. Hahahaha, that camo picture is priceless, Tommy! Mom saw a lot of hunters with their dogs on her vacation. They hunt with a very special breed too, but mainly rabbits. The Bibster sure looks cute!

  5. Tommy, you are clearly always full of fun. Bibi, your deironing efforts are excellent. Keep up the good work.

    Yay for the new laptop!!

  6. Looks like you had lots of fun Tommy! and Bibi, you look so cozy in the bed.

  7. That is a very dramatic sky!

    Tom, if you want to camoflague yourself, roll in mud and pretend to be a chocolate labrador!

  8. Don't listen to the de-ironing remarks - you are just putting the finishing touch of Bibi furs on everything to make them extra specially good.
    Tommy we giggled at you with the grass over your face - did you think we couldn't see you!! haha!!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  9. The Bibi, you are such a hoot! And Tommy, a pure delight, as always!

    Momma is a little bit jealous of your new laptop. She says bad words to her Windows computer every day!

  10. I'm glad #1 put a khaption there to say woo were in the khamo pikh -

    I barely saw woo!

    Great pikhs - especially the sky!


  11. We don't hunt either but we do like the cooler mornings and pointing at birds.

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose

  12. Tommy, yoor camoflarj is AWESOME ~ we couldn't even see yoo in that photo! MOL!

    And Bibi ~ yoo are VERY helpful ~ don't let ennybuddy tell yoo different.

    Love the sky pic!

  13. Great camo, Tommy, and it sure adds to your manliness! Bibi-Chan, we are very jealous of your sleeping arrangements as we aren't allowed in the bedrooms, never mind on the bed.

    Happy snuggling in your chilly weather.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  14. Tommy, you are quite handsome in the field!

    Bibi, Mom says she could just kiss your paws and toesies!

    Chani helped Mom make the bed the other day. She couldn't understand why Mom wanted her out from under the fitted sheets. Humans!


  15. Tommy stay warm and moving out there in the autumn air! And Bibi-Chan--that is very very smart of you to stay under the covers!

  16. Tommy, we are laughing into our paws at your camo photo...But Mommy insists we tell you that you are doing a great job!

    The Bibi, Yuu would be proud of your ironing assistance. We bet you get a lot of nicknames; Our The Baby has one very much like your name...we call her "Bibbles"!

  17. Bibi-Chan, #1 should be proud of you for helping her to iron - a mancat has to be very comfortable in his mancatliness to do that!

  18. You look so cute with the camo on Tommy and might what a BIG ring you fetch! :)

  19. Fab photos Tommy, we loved them!

    Can't believe you have frost already! Here's hoping the winter is a bit milder than last year!

    take care
    Clive and Murray

  20. Camouflaged Tommy is just to cute.

  21. Oh Tommy we thought you wwere going to be a scarecrow for Halloween
    Benny & Lily

  22. Tommy, Grete said she is going to try your trick too, great camo!

    Bibi, can we have an undercover snuggle party at your place?
