True Colours Thursday: Pink. Birthday Boy, an Award and a River Walk

It's True Colours Thursday again, this week's colour is PINK, host of this meme is BLUE.
With two teenage girls, it was never going to be a struggle to find pink things to post but I thought i'd keep it dog-related!

First is a collection of leads:
Rosie and Gabbi's showleads, these are hand plaited using Kangaroo hide which goes lovely and soft but is very strong, they also have beads on them which spell their names. They are each three shades of pink, Gabbi's is a shade lighter. Gabbi chewed hers up at a show and now has a tan & white one, don't know why I keep the pink one, it is useless now! Rosie and Gabbi's puppy leads which i've kept. Rosie and Gabbi's current leads which are dirty! Gabbi's is the white & pink one and Rosie's is chocolate & pink. Finally a rope slip lead which I use when we're going to shows as it's easier to put on and remove, Gabbi's one is pink.

Next, alot of our show stuff is pink: The pink smelly things in the car which keep the wet-dog niff at bay! The pocket in Mum's pink body-warmer from which all sorts of tasty treats magically appear, we stand very still and good when she puts her hand in there! The toilet bag where all our grooming stuff goes, with big pink hearts on it. A tin of paw wax incase of slippery floors.
Scissors for tidying up our tails, they have pink handles. The rucksack for carrying all our show gear. The pink rosette Snoop won for 6th Hound at Keith Country Show many moons ago.
Two pink show catalogues which Mum keeps as they relate to the rosettes below.
The pink folder where all our documents and certificates are kept.
The pink vetbed which goes in Rosie & Gabbi's crate, look how Alfie claims it for his own!
A selection of stuffies which sometimes come with us....Rosie has kindly removed their faces, to protect their identities I assume!
Our food is pink too! Yummy chicken carcasses.....well we need to eat when we're working!
Some of Alfie's rosettes have pink on them, the green & pink one was from the first time he won Best of Breed, he was also 4th in the Hound Group, the two blue & pink ones were from the time he won the Hound Group, Mum was shaking during the Best in Show line-up!
The all important wet wipes come in a pink packet.
The rosette Alfie won on Saturday, also pink.
Mum's pink driving gloves to keep her fingers warm driving through the hills! See two posts ago....Mum usually wears a pink jumper!
So there you have it, some of our PINK stuff!

Today is Alfie's Birthday....he's three now!! Happy Birthday my boy xx Photos tomorrow :o)

Those sweet Bassets, Martha and Bailey have given us this lovely award, thanks dear girls!

Edit: the award was the cute ladybird one that unfortunately linked to a nasty adult site so subsequently has been removed, it was the thought that counted though :o)

You may remember in a previous post I said I wasn't doing the picking thing anymore for awards....so again, if you're in my blog lists, consider yourself awarded!
Yesterday we went for a lovely walk along the river with our friends from Gennasus, it was a beautiful sunny day....even quite warm in the sun and the water was so calm.

Gabbi forgot she hates the water!

The wanderer returns!

Jana is as bouncy as ever.....then she spies some geese!

I didn't manage to get any Papillon photos but I can reveal that Teasel got her knickers in a twist! I think Louis is in the video below. (Louis won Best Veteran in Show for the 2nd year running at Bon-Accord on Saturday, well done boyo!)

Lastly....Gabbi wasn't into playing the dangly face game yesterday but I got one today :o)

Happy Birthday Alfie, we hope you have the best of days with lots of presents as you deserve.
We liked your pink leads with beads on! Oh we are so jealous!
You could also have had Bailey's pink collar!
We like your idea about including everyone in your awards - we are new to this and I must say it is a worry that you miss someone out and they are offended!

Happy birthday, Alfie!!! I hope you get to do some VERY special things!
I like all the pink things. Mom has some pink camo fabric that I'd REALLY like her to make into a fluffy quilt for me. I could put it in the carrier and then maybe my brothers would stay out! I wonder if that would work?
Congrats on the award!!!
And we LOVE your photos!
