Manly Monday!

: I got to do hugely manly stuff on Saturday as I went with #1 to see the logging with Percherons in a nearby forest. I spent the entire afternoon enjoying the woods (and staying respectfully away from the big horses). #1 said it was very clear that I was having a really good time...

She was quite pleased with this photo too:

As a wise older woofie, I am heavily involved in the training of young Fernant (our neighbour pup) and I go over to spend a little time with him every day. He is full of energy!

But he is a very studious boy!

Bibi-Chan: The other day, #1 sent a couple of photos of me grooming whilst hugging my ratsie to a friend of hers who is a big fan of mine. Her reply read: "Bibi est toujours parfait. Elegant, star, séducteur, c'est le Robert Redford (jeune) des abyssins." This translates as: "Bibi is always perfect. Elegant, with star quality, and seductive, he is the (youthful) Robert Redford of Abyssinians." BLUSH!!! So, here are a couple more photos from that shoot:

I do believe in doing all kinds of stuff with my ratsie such as enjoying the view from the window together:

I have also been helping #1 with her showering lately...

Vidock: Hi Guys! What's up? #1 took this portrait of me a few days ago. What do you think?


  1. Young Fernant is very lucky, having the manliest of lovely woofie role models to learn from. Hey Beebs, I have a rattie of my own called Ratskin who I carry around and yell at! :)

  2. I'm sure Mango might ofFUR some pointers fur harnessing the energies of The Labradork!

    Great pikhs mes hommes!


  3. Tommy looks extremely happy to be in the forest with the big horses. Bibi, we like your ratsie. Great post! Happy Monday!

  4. A most manly adventure.


  5. About that 'LabraDear' -

    He's playing the puppy license khard fur NOW!


  6. Fernant is a growing boy and is lucky to have Tommy as his mentor.
    Bibi you handle that ratsie very well but do remember they are very sneaky rodents and he may try to bite your pretty nose!!
    Vidock your are a lovely and look very clever and wise for one so young. We are sure you will become an expert in your chosen profession.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  7. Fernant is the luckiest pup in the world...not only for what he's been through but now he gets to learn from Tommy!

  8. I think you are all looking great! Bibi--that is so very true!

  9. You are all some great looking boys. :)

  10. Well, Bibi, I can attest to your assistance in the rain room. I like helping too. Just watch out for hands full of bubbles!!

    All of you boys are amazing. I love your friend Fernant, Tom. You two make a great pair of friends and you are a perfect trainer for the young pup!

    Vidock, you are a handsome horsie. I love your gentlemanly hairstyle too!

  12. All of you are so manly! We are wondering, how old does Vidock need to be officially a Grown Up Horse?

  13. Vidock, Mommy is in love with you. She missses having horses. Tommy & Bibi-Chan your handsomeness overwhelms us. Fenris has been enjoying the nicer weather we have been having and Mommy is taking him on longer walks.

  14. All the pictures are gorgeous but I love the Tommy one.. Hugs GJ xx

  15. You are right Tommy, that is cool guy stuff

  16. Geez!! I just heard a big 'thump'...guess what it was, TINY FAINTING! She saw your picture Bibi and she just fell over and I had to fan her to get her to come around!! She just kept mumbling something about how gorgeous you are (and she kept saying it over and over). Not only that, there was Ellwood whining in the other room about how he wants to go and play with Tom, too!! Geez, what is going on? Then we all sat up straight when we saw Vidock...I mean we were ready to salute him he is so impressive and BIG!! We will keep our eyes on him from afar... he may be nice, but we are so little compared to him...but boy is he HANDSOME!! Purrs, Lautrec, Tiny and Ellwood

  17. So cute !! The dogs playing together, the cat with it's toy and the horse looking at you. I just want to pet all of them ...

  18. Just plain and simple handsome, Vidock!!!

    And Tommy, you have your hands full with that young pup Fernant, but we bet he will learn well.

    Now Bibi, you have a lot to live up to, the Momster thinks the world of Robert Redford - we hope to see you in lots of movies one day too:)

  19. All three of you have your special manliness: Bibi, we all know how special a mancat you are, Tom, #1 is fortunate to have you able to accompany her so responsibly, and also to help out with Fernand's training: Vidock, you are a very handaome man-horse!

  20. Tommy, how nice that you have Fernant to teach things to...and play with!! Bibi, you are quite handsome!! And Vidock, we always enjoy seeing you!!

  21. Lots to see on Manly Monday. Glad all the men of the house had a good weekend.

  22. Fabulous pictures, all! How fun to watch Percherons logging. Tommy -- love the top two photos, tho I think the very top is my favorite. Bibi, you are quite elegant and your ratsie is very cute! Vidock is so pretty. Both BB and I think so!

  23. All the guys in your family are just as manly and handsome as ever. All the photos are wonderful, but those shots of Tommy can just make a girl's heart go all fluttery.

  24. Happy Monday to all of you!
    Kisses and hugs

  25. A very manly Monday! Tom we love the picture of you hidden in the undergrowth.

    So lovely to see Fernant out playing and you teaching him.

    Great shots of the rest of the family.

    Have a good week.
