Manly Monday with Tommy!

Tom: It's another glorious morning here and it's also a holiday, the fourth in the past month! So, aside from the birds tweeting, there is not much activity outside. On the other hand, #1's fax machine has been churning out stuff, so she has to work...

Yesterday, we went to an art fair in a nearby village and #1 thought it would be a good idea to take a rather arty photo of me. What do you think?

I think this is the first ever blog picture of me with a lead! I am not fond of the lead and #1's right arm is now considerably longer than her left...

As you know, this is the "real" me, running free in the sun!

Here is a wet and wild photo taken last week. The field was full of dew first thing in the morning!

And finally for today, here is one of #1's favourite recent photos. She says it shows off all my wonderfulness to the full!

We hope everyone's week gets off to a good start!


  1. We had a holiday here in New Zealand today, too!

  2. Tom we have seen yesterday who you love Art, you have been almost everywhere, investigating every corner...

    ViVi & AB

  3. Morning Tommy!

    We're enjoying our bank holiday here too - someone should be filling a picnic basket at the moment but seems to left the kitchen!!

    The 'wild & wet' photo in the early morning light was fantastic!

    lots of woofs

  4. Could your tongue get any bigger? That is impressive.


  5. Oh Yes!

    Mango The RH is khorrekht on the tongue!

    What great Tommy shots!

    My mom's left arm is much longer than her right fur some reason!


  6. We like the arty photograph of you, but they are all good. ~S,S,C & F

  7. Hi, Tom,

    no, I'm not too ocupied with friends to blog...keyboard died :-)Now, when my mommy fixed it, I must catch up with all of you ;-)
    You are still my favourite boy:-)
    Kisses and hugs to Sei-Chan and Tama-Chan from my bro Mico:-)
    And to all of you kisses from me and my mommy

  8. great pictures of you, Tom. You do look much happier run free in the early morning light and with the dew dripping off your ear feathers. And what a long pink tongue you have! (all the better for bathing Sei-Chan with?)

  9. I like the artsy picture of you, but I have to agree that the photos of you in the grass seem to match your spirit more. Either way, #1 takes great pictures!

  10. wow an art fair sounds like fun - and those are some beautiful pictures


  11. Great pix, Tommy! I love to see that happy-dog grin!

  12. Tommy, you just look so handsome in the green grass. Your grin is infectious and your furs shine!

    Any day that starts out with seeing cute photos of you and the cats is a great day. You are so handsome Tom!

  14. Tommy, you look great and yes, artsy!
    My mom says she would have liked to go to the art fair too.

  15. Tom, you are so photogenic, you look handsome in every photo!

  16. With your lovely photos, my morning just got better. Thank you for helping me improve the beginning of my week!

  17. Oh, those are such nice pictures of you Tom - you look so happy in all of them, even if you aren't free to run around in that first one!

  18. We agree with #1, that last photo is quite fetching, Tommy!

  19. Tommy, all your pics are beautiful, but that last one is a real charmer.

  20. hi Tom, it is not possible to have a "bad" picture of you. they are all fantastic. we especially like the photo of you in the tall grass. you are so handsome and you look like a nature dog when you are running free. that's what we like too. we bet we would have fun playing with you.


  21. It's a holiday over where I live too, but I'm not enjoying it at all, because the people here love to celebrate their holidays with fireworks!

    I love your artsy photo, Tom. You do look kind of strange with a lead on. I prefer the wild and free Tommy!

  22. We love the arty photo - what a wonderful color on the wood gate behind you! H-Mom's childhood Springer did not like a leash either, and she is always amazed that he didn't strangle himself trying to get to the woods to run freely ...

  23. Thank you and I hope your week is a good one also. These pictures are very cute of you and I bet it feels good to get outside.

  24. What a wonderful photo of you, Tommy. You sure are a photogenic woofie:)

    The girls look lovely snuggling together. We hope they are both on the road to recovery from their ailments.

  25. All photos of you are great Tommy! You always look so happy!! Jen said it makes her happy just looking at you!

  26. Grete says she wants to come play with you in the grass!
