Benny: Are you scared yet?

Queen Tama: Boys......

By the way, we just noticed that this is blog post #5050 for us!

PSA: Thanks to something we read on Basil's Blog, we thought to take a look at our comment spam folder, and there we found almost 300 comments by our friends which had been tagged as spam, some dating back many years but most of them recent. So, if you are on Blogger and haven't checked your spam folder recently, take a look!

Woofie Wednesday


Ollie: Woofs, Everyone! Ollie here! I wanted to do something really special for #1's return, to show her how much I love her, so I found something that was absolutely delicious to roll in. I have no idea why she was not impressed or even a little pleased! She started out by using something called "Dirty Dawg" on me as a dry wash, and then yesterday, her friend Ms. R, came over and I had to have a whole body shampoo with something called "Dirty Beastie"!

#1 did say that I was really good as she washed me.

And I even got kisses!

And then a nice towel dry:

Terrific Tuesday! Momo's FIRST BIRTHDAY!


#1 here. I have returned home just in time to join in the celebrations for our little Momo's first birthday! He started out by being a fun idea in my head, to have a pure white cat to go with the pure black one. But Momo is so much more than just a colour. He has turned out to be a wonderful addition to the Poupounette Gang. He is very sweet ands gentle, but also very playful, and he loves everyone. Benny and Ollie are his best friends. Even Queen Tama tolerates him, and that is saying a lot!

Here are a bunch of photos, starting with the first time I met Momo, to today. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Momo-Chan, from all your fanily! We love you!

Violette & Co. Vendredi


Violette: #1 came to see us and bring us apples shortly before she left. We know she will be seeing some stunning competition horses where she is going, but she told us that no horse would ever be more beautiful than us as far as she is concerned.

Left to Right: Heloise, The Big V and me!

And as she drove home, #1 saw that Mama Hotesse was sending her (and us) a sign:

Woofie Wednesday


Ollie: The weather was nice and spring-like yesterday, so #1 and I hung out for a while in the garden. I had a lot of fun chasing shadows and insects!

#1 leaves this afternoon on the first leg of her journey to Slovakia. She will take a train from Le Mans to the airport, and then stay overnight at an airport hotel. Tomorrow is a general national strike so trains probably won't be running. She is hoping that her flight from Paris to Vienna on Thursday won't be cancelled. She and two judges also going from France will then be met at Vienna airport for the 200km drive to the competition site.

Mr. G, we are ready for you!

Tama-Chan Tuesday


Tama-Chan: Hello, Dear Friends. I am taking a few minutes out of taking care of #1 to prepare my blog post. Poor #1 had a nightmare journey to Paris. Her trains were cancelled in both directions (unannounced strike action) and she had to go and come back with stops and changes in trains at Chartres. In the morning, she had just 5 minutes to sprint from one train to the other, a challenge given her bum hip, but she did it. She arrived for her appointment 45 minutes late, but she had emailed and phoned to say she'd be late and the doctor did see her. The journey back was just as horrendous. And to top it all off, that scamp, Benny, managed to escape at dusk and it took almost an hour to get him back in. Ollie was very helpful in telling #1 where he was, so a gold star for him. And today, #1 must prepare to leave tomorrow hoping that there won't be cancelled trains and flights....

Anyway, I have just a few photos for you today:

Our blogging and commenting are likely to be intermittent until #1 gets back next week, so please bear with us!

Manly Monday


Momo-Chan: Hi Everyone! Just trying out a different perspective here!

Ollie: Here is another photo of me in the garden.

Benny: #1 caught me as I was bathing in a sunpuddle!

Vidock: Here I am with young Kaline in the background. She will be three years old soon. She belongs to Ms. C.

We have a guest appearance on today's Manly Monday post. #1 took a couple of pics of Masha, one of the boys over at Mr. G's house:

We wish you all a very good week!
