Manly Monday and An Award!

Tom: We had a pretty mixed weekend in terms of weather, with more rain than any of us would have liked. It started pouring in the afternoon yesterday, just as #1 was contemplating my afternoon run, so guess who got no run? Just a little amble later on in the evening, after supper. It's now light until around 9:30pm, so there's plenty of time!

We did get sunshine on Friday and #1 managed to catch me in my full, glorious handsomness just by our gate!

I did spend some time with various girlfriends. I met Pie at a wine-tasting on Saturday afternoon, and again in the evening when we were invited to the same dinner party, at the home of Pam and Plume who are real sweeties:

I also spent some time hanging out with my littlest sister, Sei-Chan:

#1 took a tiny video snippet of me the other day, in which I show off my tail-wagging technique!

And finally for this morning, a big thank you to Bolo for sharing this great award with us:

Here's the text that goes with it:
This award is presented to those dog bloggers out there who know the meaning of GREATNESS. Their blogs are consistently interesting, funny, or informative. Their KINDNESS is extended to others without expectation of it’s return, and their FRIENDSHIP inspires others to do EXTRAORDINARY things. These are the blogs you can’t wait to read everyday. In short, they are AWE-INSPIRING, full of wonder, and simply PAWsome!Pass this award on to 4 others who you feel exemplify a “Paw”some Blog, and leave a note saying why you think they deserve the Pawsome Award!”

We would like to break the rules (we're French, after all!) and share this award with both dogs AND cats, our friend  Clive, who is an inspiration to us all, Quill and his friends who are saving Baxter, Angus & Tallulah who make us smile each and every day, and  Abby & Stygia who inspired us to blog in the first place.

I hope you are all enjoying sunshine and a good start to the week! By the way, we were so pleased to hear that enough funds had been collected to spring Baxter from the shelter! Go BAXTER!!!
