Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Well, that was quite a two days! #1 was crazy on Sunday, mainly on the phone and computer at home, and then yesterday, she was gone almost all day, not even taking Tommy at home. She says she will tell you about the big horse rescue operation tomorrow. In the meantime, we were all exhausted just looking at her!

I did some napping on her behalf:

I really hope that helped a bit!

Manly Monday

Tommy: We would like to start by apologising for the lack of commenting on our part yesterday. We noticed that we in turn got very few comments. #1 unexpectedly ended up spending a big chunk of the day trying to save two 12-year old broodmares that she heard had been sold for meat at an estate sale. It took all of her time and energy from early afternoon through the evening but with a lot of help from a bunch of people, she succeeded and the mares are safe!

Before all hell broke on that, she and I had lunch with some visitors from England, and I met Bess and Poppy:

They of course are Border Collies, so they were far too busy to pay attention to me, even though I was being very manly!

I also got to spend an evening with my little buddy, Tora-Chan:

Vidock; Moving right along here. No, the photo is not out of focus It was fthat oggy!

 Da Genj: I am quite pleased with this photo #1 took of me:

Da Beebs: I am very sleepy, #1! Please don't disturb me!

Tora-Chan: Hi everyone! That #1 lady and Flopy Ears came to see me again!

I have to tell you, that rucksack smells so good! It's like being with all my cousins!

Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: It's already Sunday again and we are ready to spend the day snuggling with #1. Apparently, she is going away next weekend, so we had better get it all in this week, right?

I thought that we would start with the horses this week as they have been rather MIA in our recent SoS posts, especially Miss Violette, so we will kick off with her!

Next up is Big V. Look at that tongue! 

#1 also managed to get a snuggle selfie with Violette's Mama, Hotesse, with Miss heloise doing a bit of a photo bomb!

#1 also caught a sweet pic of Tommy snuggling up to her whilst she was in bed one morning:

 And here is Tommy enjoying a snuggle when he ran into one of his young fans when out on a walk a few days ago:

Snuggling up to #1 on the sofa in the evening seems to be the rage with the boys at the moment:

We girls, on the other hand have been snuggling with Tommy:

It remains for me to wish you much happy snuggling!

Sei-Chan: Well, we had a close shave this week. #1 thought that it was goig to be yet another SEIturday post with archive shots of me and then.... THE SUN CAME OUT!

And my furs gleamed!

What do you think of that, then?


Have a great SEIturday!

And we would like to welcome some old friends back to blogging! PEI in the Life were among our first blogging friends, with the one and only Bolo, the Shar Pei. When Bolo crossed the Bridge, the beautiful Ching My arrived. But then, there was a long period of no posts at all. Just recently, though, the family has been joined by a new girl, Wedgie, and they are blogging once more! We are so thrilled to have them back! Oh, and how about re-starting Nose-Vember?

Family Friday

Genji: With one thing and another, #1 has taken fewer pics than usual this week, so let me see what I can find for you....

Here is one of me and my bro, Tommy, hanging together in the living room:

And one of Da Beebs and Mama Tama at the window in the study:

And here is Sei-Chan hanging out in her new favourite sleepy location on the upstairs landing, with Tommy not too far away:

In the very extended family category, here is our calf for the year and his Mama. As you can see, he is outside the fencing and she is inside. The little rascal is small enough to get out and gets to feast on the greener grass on the other side of the fence!

Tommy's Thankful Thursday

Tommy: Woofs, everyone! #1 is home these days but life still seems to be pretty busy!

It's fun to play hide and seek in the tall grass:

And to roll around in the grass too!

Waiting for #1 to throw the ball:

Flying ears!

I am also very helpful around the house...

And of course going out dining with #1:

So much to be thankful for!

Wednesday Whinnies

Héloise: Little Neighs, Everyone1 It's Héloise here! I am now five months old. Do you think that qualifies me as a big girl?

The apple lady says I am growing more beautiful by the minute (blush...) 

I don't have anything very exciting to tell you. I love living in my field with my Mama, Hotesse, and my Auntie, Doucette:

The apple lady said that someone called a farrier would be coming to see us on Thursday, after being around to my other big sis, Violette. I wonder what he will be doing? 

Violette: I am looking forward to getting my hooves done tomorrow!

Vidock: Me too! But I heard a rumour that #1 had also put in a call to the equine dentist for our yearly check-up...

Tama-Chan Tuesday: The Brushies

Tama-Chan:  Dear Friends, you know how much I LOVE being brushed, and I must say that #1 is pretty good at obliging. She doesn't get around to it every single day, but she does pretty well. This week, I have some photos showing one of my brushing sessions.

#1 will sit on the floor and I immediately come running. First she brushes me with the zoom groom. The groom and hand are blurry because this is an action shot!

Once she is done zooming me, she moves on to the special soft pet brush from Japan:

I just love this brush. It is from a famous brush shop called Kanaya, in the Asakusa neighbourhood of Tokyo!

And yes, I confess, I love my tummy being brushed too!

Thank you, #1!

And after a good brushing, there is nothing like a good snooze:

 And in the afternoon sun, I even got an extra cushion!

Truly fit for a Queen, wouldn't you say?

Manly Monday

Genji: #1 said I could go first this week. I have been tearing around the house, now that I feel better, and eating up a storm. As you know, we don't do clothes around here, but the other day, when I was having my treats, #1 slung this festival coat over my back. Do you think it suits me?

She did also take this nice portrait of me!

Da Beebs: I have a nice portrait too!

And here I am squatting the seat that is usually reserved for Mama-Tama. Thank goodness she was elsewhere at the time!

Tommy: #1 got this great shot of me catching my ball!

And here I am with my next-door girlfriend Damia. Her #1, Ms. N, was in hospital for a long time, but she is finally home and we went to visit her!

And we mentioned before that Damia has a new little kitten bro. His name is Merlin and he is growing up fast! 

 Vidock: I have a portrait too!

 I am back to my usual routine of going out riding in the woods with Mr. JP:

 We hope you all have a great week!
