Tama-Chan Tusday


Tama-Chan: #1 says that today is the last day of November and that it will soon be Christmas. I have always loved Christmas, ever since I climbed t the top of the tree my very first Christmas here! This year, we have newbie naughty boy Benny, so #1 says we will have to make a special effort to Benny-proof the tree! We will have visitors next week and they will help us put up the tree.

I the meantime, here is a nice photo of me indulging in one of my trademark dangles.

And an upward dangle for variety:

And here is a study in a small sunpuddle:

Manly Monday


Vidock: Handsome Neighs, EveryFriend! Go on! Admit it! You missed me tonnes! #1 finally came to see us yesterday. With the awful weather we had all weekend, I was seriously muddy, but if you take a close look at my photo, you will see that I am on my way to becoming a unicorn! Hey, you always knew I was magical, right?

Benny: I have been practicing on #1's Aussie stock saddle. She said that maybe I could ride Vidock one day!

Ollie: #1 caught me in a typical Springer pose, with one paw up!

We wish al of our friends a good week, and a good start to December!

Snuggles on Sunday


Tama-Chan: #1 is planning to go an see the Vs and Hs this morning, so this will be another post without them. But we have been doing plenty of snuggling at Poupountte Central, as you will see.

Here I am first, with Ollie:

Well, actually, I am on #1 and Ollie's head is on her knees.

Here is Ollie again, snuggled up to #1 in bed:

And here is Benny snuggling with #1 in bed!

Both the boys laying claim to #1 on the sofa:

Me, about to jump up on #1 for a cuddle:

This is an oft-repeated pattern!

Last, but not least, would you just look at these two?

I wish you a warm and snuggly Sunday!

Sei-Chan's Souvenir Saturday


Rainbow Sei: It's a cold and dreary weekend down at Poupounette Central, so there's a lot of snuggling going on! The leaves are almost all gone from the trees. #1 put a Facebook post last week of the leaves from the Japanese "Kanzan" cherry tree. They have the prettiest colours. Tommy and Da Beebs are buried under it side by side, so their graves are looking really pretty at the moment.

Here is Tommy's:

And Da Beebs:

And here is a photo of me!

Fine Dining on Friday!


Benny: Queen Tama gts served her meals at a variety of locations throughout the house. #1 says that, as she is the Queen, we must oblige. So this morning, I thought I would accompany her.

Later the same morning...

Ollie's breakfast looks rather nice too!

Dining together makes it Family Friday!

Tama's Thankful Thanksgiving Thursday


Tama-Chan: As our friends in the US celebrate Thanksgiving, I too have ben reflecting on what I am thankful for. As I enter my golden years (how could I be any more golden than I am?), I am so thankful for having had a home at Poupountete Central ever since I was a tiny kit. I have been showered with love all of my life, and have shared it with so many wonderful souls. Being able to sit of an evening with #1 as she watches TV, being brushed, head-bumped, regularly given Chūru. So very many things to be thankful for. Even that pesky little Ben-Ben provides entertainment if nothing else. For all this, I am truly thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who are celebrating it!

Tama-Chan Tuesday


Tama-Chan: Hello, Dear Friends. Thank you for your kind words for #1 yesterday. She is almost back to normal. As for the car, it was apparently the alternator cable that had snapped. It should be repaired by Wednesday or Thursday. IN the meantime, she has a loaner for the loaner (!) which is tiny and a complete wreck. But she won't be going anywhere much in it. She is very much hoping to get hers back for Christmas!

At my end, this is what my days are made of...

So, I savour every sunpuddle:

And continue to work on those dangles!

Manly Monday


Ollie: Woof Woof, everyone! Ollie here! Since #1 took several nice photos of me last week, I get to headline today's post!

Benny: I only have one pic to share with you today, but I think it's a nice one!

Vidock! Handsome Neighs, Everyone! As you know, #1 was not able to come and see us on Saturday as planned. Such a waste of good carrots! Thank goodness for Ms. C who has been sneaking me some apples!

Some Snuggles on Sunday


Tama-Chan: Well, #1 was supposed to go and see the horses yesterday. She decided to go even though she was still feeling very tired from the booster shot. The car felt a little odd so she stopped by the side of the road, turned off the engine, and then restarted it. Nothing. Dead! Fortunately, it was very close to the house and she and Ollie could get home in less than 10 minutes through the fields.  The (nice) neighbours will take her down to the garage first thing Monday morning so she can hand over the keys. Sigh...

Anyway, our photo situation remains poor, especially that it's been very grey of late so indoor light is not great. We do have just a few shots of me and Da Ben.

A nice selfie of me and #1:

The next three were taken with the phone, but better than nothing, eh?

We wish you all a snuggly Sunday.

Sneaky SEIturday!


Rainbow Sei: I know, I know... I am not supposed to do "regular" posts all of my own, but you see, #1 had her booster yesterday and is feeling a little tired, so I thought I would sneak in with a couple of shots of moi. Fair enough, right?

Have a good one, Dear Friends!

Family Friday


Benny: With #1 being away for a good chunk of this week, we don't have many photos at the moment, but we managed to rustle up a few:



Queen Tama

And our handsome cousin, Tora-Chan!

Thankful Thursday


#1 here. I am thankful that I was able to return more or less as planned  from Paris yesterday, despite the fact that there was a train strike and almost no trains running. In the end, I took one of the few trains that did run, which only went as far as Chartres, and Mr. G came to get me there by car!

Whilst in Paris, I went to an amazing exhibition of beautiful objects from ancient Tajikistan. Kitties featured quite heavily there:

And then, I wen to a different museum where I came across this gorgeous guy. It's an incense burner!

Our apologies for the lack of commenting these past few days. We shall now return to regular commenting!

Tama-Chan Tuesday


Tama-Chan: I do love Mr. G, I really do, but I like it even better when #1 is here. Tomorrow afternoon can't come too soon! I am crossing my paws:

Practicing my "Four-Up" dangle:

And letting that Benny Boy know what I think of him as I wait for #1 to get back from Paris:
