Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: It has gotten cooler and we have had quite a lot of rain the last few days, which has been very nice after a very dry summer. It has also been great snuggling weather, not that I need an excuse these days!

I would like to start this week's post with what I call a master class in snuggling! First, you start just lying next to your #1, all relaxed:

Then you half turn towards her whilst slowly raising your arms:

And then you totally flop onto your back, with arms akimbo, so she can give you a perfect tummy rub!

#1 agrees that even though I came late to snuggling, I am now a most amazing snuggler!

Da Genj has been sticking to more traditional snuggling patterns:

And Ollie snuggles up to #1 whenever he gets a chance!


#1 didn't get a chance to get snuggle pics with the Vs this week, but she did get one with 3-year old stallion, Galupin, who is heading to his new home in Germany today! He has been at Ms. C's, learning to drive, for the past month.

And #1 did get a shot of Ms. J, Galupin's new owner, meeting the Vs in the rain!

Sei-Chan's Souvenir SEIturday

Rainbow Sei: Don't tell anyone, but I decided that this week, I would do a SEIturday post all by myself, OK? The photos are from the last year that I spent at Poupounette Central.

All of us here at The Bridge will be watching over #1 next week when she has surgery on her hand, and I am not sure we will be able to do a Souvenir post next week. We will see. I know you will understand.

Friday Fête

#1 here. Yesterday's event, the Fête du Cheval Percheron, was a big success, and I thought it might be fun to share a few photos with you.

A friend in a driving competition:

Thankful Thursday

Ollie: Woofs everyone, Ollie here! Today is one of the year's biggest Percheron horse events and #1 is very involved in the event. But guess what? I get to go along too! I am hoping to meet lots of fun new people! I am very thankful that #1 is taking me along!

And you know what? A couple of days ago, I got to go on a great drive through the countryside with #1, Ms. C, and Ms C's two working mares, Ursula and Doupette. Here area  couple of shots from our drive:

And here I am!

#1 says that, one day soon, she hopes we can go out for a drive with Vidock and Violette. Now that would be something to be thankful for!

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Can you believe it's already Tuesday again? I just don't know where the time goes. It has been nice lately, with #1 at home and lots of opportunities to snuggle with her! We are enjoying it whilst we can because I have a feeling that things will change dramatically when the autumn comes...

This past week, I decided to try something a little different:

I have to say that this scratch lounge has been around for a long time, and it's probably high time #1 got us a new one.

I've been back to doing more classical dangles:

Lately, I have also enjoyed sitting on this kitchen chair, and Ollie sometimes keeps me company:

But I have to say that it doesn't get much better than a nice comfy cushion!

And that's it from me today!

Manly Monday

Ollie: I get to go first this week! I have been having a great time tearing around the fields!

 Yes, I do occasionally stop and rest!

Genji: Sometimes, I am a jungle cat!

Vidock: Handsome from any angle!

We do have some special very manly guests today. You may have noticed the occasional comment on our blog from "The Isand Chans". These are our friends from Prince Edward Island whose parents visited us last week. Today, we would like to share photos of Louie, Yûki and Sami!

That's Louise on the left, Sami in the middle, and Yûki on the right. Louie and Yûki are brothers and are still kittens.
