Manly Monday: Four Portraits and an Achievement!

: Happy Monday, everyone! Tommy here! I am the one with the achievement! This year, #1 and I were inspired by our good friends Khyra and Phyll to enter IDITA-WALK 2012. As it says on the Idita-Walk home page "The Idita-Walk is an event to promote physical fitness in the spirit of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race". The idea is to walk 1049minutesover the two months of February and March when people are not generally too keen to be outdoors. I am happy to say that not only did we achieve the goal but we actually walked 4135 minutes over that period, and placed 75th in terms of minutes walked out of 739 finishers! I got a great certificate from the organizers!

Here is a Happy Tommy portrait to celebrate!

We decided to do all portraits today. Here is one of Big V with Big Tom and Viking, all looking very "studly"!

Genji, on the other hand, has opted for a more "cute overload" approach...

And The Beebs is looking grown up and very mancatly!

Here is hoping everyone has a great week!


  1. Tommy we love today's picture of you - your ears look very neat and tidy too - well done to you and #1 for entering the IDITA WALK and didn't you two do well.
    Mum loves the picture of Big V and Big T - are they watching you?
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  2. You all look very handsome!
    Thanks for guessing, but the animal on my blog is not a "What". (Just joking. Mom brought him back from Australia.) {clue}.
    Your friend, Mandu

  3. Oh how excellent for you! Cool about the walk!

  4. Concats to you Tommy, and #1!! You are all very handsome!

  5. Congratulations on your award! I had my human do the math and you walked an average of over an hour a day - that is amazing!

  6. Well deserved achievement, Tommy! You and #1 deserve to be proud of yourselves, that is quite a LOT of walking.

    Your kind thoughts recently, following our news about BonBon crossing over Rainbow Bridge are much appreciated.
    We got to know him late in his life when he came to live with us three years ago at the age of 13. He seemed happy here and quickly became a cherished and loved family member.

    Thank you from all of us,
    Mindy, Moe, Cookie, Mike and mombean Nina

  10. Pawesome portraits of all!!!

    Congrats on all that walking. We love to walk too, but we don't think we come any where close to your total minutes. We were a little short on our walktime when Mom broke her arm, but we are trying to catch up now.

  11. Well done Tommy and #1 too! That is quite a few minutes of walking! We think we clocked in for the LEAST minutes of walking this winter! We are not sure what LP's excuse is but we are still waiting to hear...
