Sei-Chan's Souvenir Saturday

Rainbow Sei: Hello, Dear Friends, and greetings from the Rainbow Bridge. We have been able to relax a little at this end, following all that rushing around with #1.I have to tell, I spotted someone I knew from a distance this week. Remember the wonderful Japanese photographer who took those lovely portraits of me? Well, we were really sad that he headed to the Bridge this past week, aged only 64! So, I thought I would start with a photo of me and him:

The rest of my selections for this week are also summer photos.







And Da Beebs:

Violette and Vidock Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! At the moment, The Big V and I are in a field that is a little way from Ms. C's house, along with a bay Normandy Cob girl called Victoria. So, #1 makes a point of stopping to see us either on her way to or her way from seeing Ms. C. Most of the time, we are right at the barrier:

But occasionally, we are farther away and we are busy grazing, so #1 has to admire us (me...) from afar:

Vidock: As a rule, when I see #1 coming over, I immediately go to greet her. Here I am with my cob girlfriend, Victoria:

Unlike a certain Miss Violette who can be a little slow on the uptake...

C'm on, #1! I am sure you have some nice treats for your sweet boy?

Excuse me whilst I have a hair shake to get those pesky flies off me.

Thankful Thursday

Genji here, everyone! I hope you're doing well. Thanks for your concern the other day. I am eating better, and #1 is planning to get in some new food for me. I hope it's yummy!

There is nothing new in this but, today, we are thankful to be together and to have our #1 with us.

I have been enjoying sunpuddles:

Queen Tama has been sunning herself too:

Ollie is thankful that he now has his official sticker on the car! 

And the Vs are thankful that #1 is bringing them treats regularly!

PS: This post ran away with us and posted itself on Wednesday instead of Thursday! Our apologies. Had there been no comments, we would have deleted it and started again, but as they were a couple of comments, we are leaving it as is.

Woofie Wednesday

Ollie: It is getting hot again, but #1 doesn't take me out too much when it's too hot, and I am pretty good at pacing myself and drinkings lots of water, so it's all good for the time being.

First, here is a pic of me hanging with Noelle and her big brother, Blackie, over at Ms. C's:

Here are some fun photos of me in the big field from a few days ago:

And here I am, resting in the shade under a tree:

It looks like we won't be getting any rain for a while yet. Everything is getting to be very dry.

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: I can't believe it is already the second half of July. 2019 has been so crazy so far we really need a little peace and quiet around here. But #1 is a little worried as Genji is a little off his food. We are crossing paws, fingers and hooves that it's just a passing thing. He had lost a little weight when he went to the vet for his shots last week, so we need to keep an eye on him.

I, on the other paw, do not appear to have any problems related to losing weight... Still, I am sure I lost a bit the other day when #1 sat down to give me my first good brushing in a while, You should have seen the hair!

I have been keeping a close eye on #1's online activity, just in case she gets any ideas about going anywhere...

It's also nice to spend some time in the cat run. #1 says that my eyes are the same colour as the green surrounding me! 

And there is my regular naptime on the sofa:

Let's hope that things stay quiet for a while.

Manly Monday

Genji: Something really fun happened! With #1's help, I discovered a half brother of mine! I didn't even know he existed! We had the same Mama, Bastet, but different Dads. His name is Djibouti (Djibuti des Rêves d'Aton. I am Genji des Rêves d'Aton) and he is three years older than me. Look at him!

Don't you think we look really alike? Here is a photo of me that #1 took a few days ago:

Oh, and before I forget... My vet visit the other day went OK. I got my shots. I had lost a bit of weight but Dr. C thinks it's probably just a combination of the heatwave we had and #1 being away so much. I am eating fine, so I will hopefully put the weight back on. Here is a shot of me getting my jab:

Ollie: Yesterday, I went with #1 to a driving (with horses) competition and there were lots of woofies there. She  kept me on a lead because she is not 100% sure I can be trusted yet, but I still had a ball. I met a huge and fabulous guy. He is a Leonberg!

As you can see, I actually fitted under him!

 I was a really good boy about hanging with #1 and watching the horses:

The Big V: Just hangin' out with my V girls, Violette and Victoria...

Wishing you all a good week!

Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: It's nice to be back to a proper SoS post, with #1 not having any plans to go away for a number of weeks! Now, we can kick back and enjoy the summer.

I have continued to be exceptionally snuggly with #1:

This is what happens when she sits at her laptop downstairs:

Now I am not sure how well you can see this, but it is in fact a pic of #1 covering my tummy with kisses!

Genji is still being Genji:

He and Ollie snuggle with #1 together in the mornings:

Ollie is a major snuggler:

Our friend Ms. S came over the other day, and spent some time brushing and snuggling with Ollie, as I and Da Genj looked on:

Friday evening, #1 went over to Mr. G's parents' home. Their Tora-Chan (aka Toto) is the same age as our Beebs was and we are pretty sure they  were related. Tora-Chan is really snuggly and #1 had a great time with him!

And we even have snuggle pics with the Vs! First Vidock:

And Miss Violette!

Happy Snuggling, everyone!

Sei-Chan's Souvenir Saturday

Rainbow Sei: Its been a while, Dear Friends. We have been very busy at this end, keeping #1 safe and it was a big job this time, with what happened to her car. It could have been terrible but we were all there and made sure she was safe, and inconvenienced as little as possible.

Today's photos are in no particular order and follow no particular theme. I thought I would start with this nice one of me, Tommy and "the ball":

And here is a nice Beebsy portrait in the sun:

Our Beebs isn't quite settled in yet, but we are all working hard to make him feel better. He just misses #1 (and vice-versa, I suspect)...

Here is one of me doing a double upward dangle:

I do miss that hammock!

Here is Ikkyu, way back in 2003, helping #1 with her work (on her old iMac!):

Here is Tommy at 8 months, the same age that Ollie is now!

A wonderful, summer shot of Sen-Chan:

Yuu-Chan when he was still a little kit:

And one of Trav, enjoying a snooze. 

Oh, and before I forget, I have to tell you... there is a new girl in town and boy,  is she wonderful! Her name is Binga and she is teaching me all kinds of things... She says it's no good being shy, the way I was...
