Tommy Thursday

Tom: Hi everyone, from the land of the cold and the wet... It has actually gotten cooler and #1 now wears a medium-sized sweater or a light fleece as a matter of course. Sigh. Yesterday afternoon, we got completely drenched as we were returning from our afternoon walk, and the skies look menacing again today. Double sigh...

But life continues to be fun over here at Poupounette Central. It is always possible to pose in between the raindrops:

Yesterday, I accompanied #1 on a pizza lunch (yes, I got some!) and then to a brief work meeting!

That's my work smile...

And today marks the inauguration of Camp Tommy! Our neighbors left early this morning and will be away until next Monday evening, and they were not able to find dog-friendly accommodations, so young Fernant is staying with us! Here is the scene when we retrieved him this morning:

And on our morning run:

I know it's not yet Friday, but here are some artistic flying ears for you!


  1. Oh how we wish we khould send Khousin Harley to Khamp Tommy -

    He and Fernant would be perfekht together -

    Have fun!

    Khyra and Khousin Merdie

  2. I want to move to France! I think your cold wet weather sounds great and camp looks amazing!


  3. Glad to hear that you got some pizza Tommy! You will have a fun time racing around the fields with Fermant. We agree with Mango that we would love some cold weather here.

    We would be happy to teach you about not pulling on leash. It took me a long time to learn. We sporting dogs are always looking for the birds! Ambrose can still pull Barbara like a freight train if she doesn't watch him.

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose

  4. Wonderful flying ears Tommy and any day is a good day to see them. Perhaps Fernant will come up with a title for Friday's post!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. Camp Tommy seems to be such a delightful place! Just look at how happy Fernant is chasing after you with that lovely red ball!

  6. Fernant is a lucky woofie to get to hang with you while his family is away..... oh, and mom says she can't really work up too much sympathy for the sweater wearing since it is still about 90F here. yech.... :)

  7. Aww you are going to have a great time with your buddy. Enjoy every minute of it.

  8. Tommy, your flying ears are welcome any day of the after day. xox

  9. Look at you with your flying ears! Wow!

  10. Tommy, I love your work smile very much. I wish you could come to my office. And your flying ears are so cute! Have fun at camp Tommy!

  11. While we have not been as terribly hot as the rest of the U.S., it's very dry here and we sure could use some of your rain!

  12. Despite the rain, it was a great play date

  13. We hope you get some sun soon! It does brighten everything when the sun is out...although LP loves cool weather now that she is in her middle age years :)
    What fun for you sweet Tommy to have a buddy for a few days.Enjoy yourselves!!

  14. Flying ears Fun with Fernant!!! Can we come to Camp Tommy - we need to get away from this heat. We are having to water our lawn every day now. This is the first year in several years that we have had a decent lawn because of irrigation system problems and all that roof work. Mom and Dad are so happy with the lawn but not so much with the water bills.

    Hope Fernant behaves for you and you both have a lot of fun together.

  15. Pizza???
    I am sure Fernant is having a great time at your place!
    Have fun!
    Kisses and hugs

  16. How cool that you got pizza, Tommy!

  17. Lovely photo of you, Tommy. The colour of the grasses really sets off your beautiful coat. And we love your smile.
    Be sure to mind your leg. Once Fernant gets playing he might forget himself and injure you again. But do have a wonderful time. It's so much fun to have a friend.

  18. You looked like you had quite a party Tommy. We agree that Fernant should go to Camp Tommy where he gets to have some good friends looking after him. Its also good to see Fernant again.

  19. Great flying ears! I wish we could do ear posts. We wish we could have some of your cool, rainy weather. We'd gladly swap some of our hot dry days for that.

  20. what a great time you have guys, you look so happy while playing on the field. Have a great day :D

  21. Hi Tommy, we're glad to meet your house guest and friend, Fernant! You are having a great time; love the 'flying'ears.


  22. Oh Tommy,
    My hairy slobbery sister Bob gets ever so excited when me shows her your Thursday posts! (even if its not Thursday) She wishes she could go to camp Tommy and runs through the fields with yous!
