Manly Monday

Ollie: #1 got back at 11pm last night! I was so happy to see her! But I dd have a good weekend too!

Genji: It was really late when she got back! I was worried!

Vidock: #1 sent us a message that she saw hundreds of horses this weekend, but none were as beautiful as us!

 Have a great week, EveryFriend!

Sneaky Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: Pssssttttt.... Queen Tama here. I know #1 said there would probably not be an SoS post today, but I thought I would sneak in just one or two photos. I continue to explore the world of snuggling with young Ollie. He doesn't quite get it yet but he is making progress in kitty-snuggling! I never thought of myself as a teacher before, but someone has to get the job done!

Sorry that they are a little blurry. There wasn't a lot of light and the flash wasn't on.

Violette et Vidock Vendredi

Violette: Pretty neighs everyone! #1 asked me to start by apologising for no post yesterday. Our Wednesday post ended up going up very late as she had forgotten to press the button. She has been so busy the last few days that she just can't manage to do a lot of the stuff that she normally does. As you know, she is leaving for Japan in one week, but before that, she is away from today until Sunday, to the French Percheron championships, so I'm afraid there won't be a Saturday post, and probably not a Sunday one either. Sorry!

Anyneigh, The Big V and I had our bimonthly hooficures this week. Even though the sky was grey, it did not rain which was great.

Here I am, waiting to be done. You can see The Big V waiting on the left:

I am always a good girl for the farrier!

Getting the varnish put on at the end!

The Big V: As I am not in the same field as Miss Violette at the moment, it was nice to see her and hear her latest news!

I'm ready!

It's important to get your shoes fitted properly!

#1 tried a different angle:

And afterwards, treat bucket time! 

By the time the farrier comes again, in November, #1 will be back from Japan!

Woofie Wednesday With Fernant! (almost on Thursday!)

 We had this post all ready to go Wednesday morning and #1 forgot to press publish...

Ollie: I have had so much fun the past few days! Since Sunday, our neighbours have been away and so Fernant has been spending most of his time with us! Even though Fernant is almost a senior woofie, at 8 years old, he and I have the best time playing together!

It's great to have a pal to hang out with!

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Oh, how I wish things could stay just as they are now! Everyone is here and we even have that mad woofie, Fernant, with us or a few days. He and young Ollie play like two young pups, and Mad Fernant brings with him happy memories of Tommy. But of course, the countdown has now started for #1's departure to Japan on October 4th, to be preceded by her being away for 3 days this weekend at the French Percheron Championships. Sigh...

But as long as she is here, she can take photos! She has been doing some close-ups:

There have been lots of lovely sunpuddles:

Sometimes enjoyed in the company of young Ollie:

And sometimes enjoyed in my Scratch Lounge:

Manly Monday

Vidock: Who's a handsome boy then?

Ollie: Me, ME!

Genji: #1 calls this picture "Study in Blue". 

 Have a great week, everyone!

Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: I really don't know why #1 was quite so excited... She heard this enormous purring the other evening and, when she looked under the dining room table, this is what she saw:

Can you believe that she was almost in tears? She said she hadn't heard that purr from me ever since the day Tommy left us. Well, I suppose young Ollie has proven himself, eh?

Genji is still into more traditional snuggling with #1:

Ollie has also been snuggling with one of his many girlfriends, Noelle:

And #1 has been snuggling with the Vs! First Vidock, then Violette:

Sei-Chan's Souvenir Saturday

Rainbow Sei: It seems like a log time since I have done one of these posts! As you can imagine, we are busy here, figuring out who is going to accompany #1 on her mega-trip to Japan. In the end, she is going to be away for such a long time (a whole month!), that we decided we would take turns. Tommy and Beebs will do Week 1. I will do Week 2 with Sen-Chan. Trav and Ikkyu will do Week 3. And I will be back for week 4, with Yuu-Chan.

So, for this week, I have decided to try, once again, to find nice pics taken this month, and asked #1 to look through the September archives.

Let me start with this 2004 photo of Ikkyu looking very comfy in bed!

Here is Sen-Chan from 2008, playing with a feather:

Yuu-Chan and a very young Beebs  in 2010:

Next, one of me in 2012:

And a peekaboo from Trav in 2015:

Finally for today, one of Tommy, complete with flying ears and his favourite ball in 2016:

Thankful Thursday With Ollie

Ollie: Now that #1 is back, I am once again going with her when she goes about her business and it's fun. I am thankful she takes me along most of the time! I get to make all kinds of wonderful friends!

But the sweetest one is the donkey, Miss Samia!

It was very warm on Monday, and #1 went to have a dip in the neighbours' pool, so I got a chance to play with my pal Fernant (and his toys!)!

And sometimes, it's just a lunch invitation where there are no other woofies, or even cats, but lots of space to run, and an open door!

It all makes for exhausting days!
