Late and Wordy Wednesday....Gifts From Petey

We promised to post the gifts Petey and Rosie took back from Bermuda....

Wow, what alot of lovely pressies! Alfie has a bottle of Black Seal Rum so he can try out a Dark 'n' Stormy for himself....Snoop got not one, but two Black Rum cakes for his sweet tooth....Gabbi got a new bag with some duty-free gifts inside it....and Rosie got a special surprise from her

Well, Snoop couldn't wait to get his gnashers into the cake....infact he polished them both off in one sitting and is now groaning about his full belly!

Alfie took his Rum to the beach to warm him up against the North Wind, he forgot the Ginger Beer....it's not just Mica that will be hung-over....though he is an older gentleman and would rather enjoy a glass or five of Sancerre....get some class, Alf!

Gabbi tries to squeeze all her gear into her new Bermuda bag. Her iDog, Estée Dodger lipstick stuffie, a copy of Glamour magazine....you know, all the essentials...but not before giving herself a nice pawdicure....in her favourite shade...Bermuda Pink Sand!

And Petey surprised Rosie with a lovely locket....he was even thoughtful enough to place pictures inside it for Rosie to treasure...aww!
We were promised some snow yesterday....huh, it never came, only a nasty sleety rain shower last night followed by drizzle. This morning when we got up there were patches of snow on the grass, less than an inch, it melted away before we got the chance to take any photos...so does that mean it's Spring now? Yes??

So where are we going today then?

Yippee....it's Roseisle again! We love it there even when the weather is horrible but today was gorgeous....just look at that sky....if you can take your eyes off the pretty ladies!

Whatever that is, it's worth barking at....but then everything's worth barking at when your name's Rosie! I think some people were sitting at the picnic bench watching the sea....how dare they!?

Even Gabbi got her feet wet today! Aahhh....sun, sea, sand....and sticks....what more could a Hound ask for?


Uhmm....can I have my laptop back now? I wanted to paw a love-letter to my Petey!

Edit: We are sorry if the above photo caused any embarrassment....we asked Aunt Bailey if we could borrow a pair of her woolly bloomers to cover Rosie's bajingo.....sadly, there simply wasn't a Jiffy bag large enough for the job.....or a postie brave enough to put his hands on them for fear of broken limbs!

That's not a very lady-like pose Rosie! Bermuda and Petey have obviously had an effect on you!

Petey said...

Hubba hubba! I know what photos I'm going to tuck under my pillow tonight!!!

I just want to plant a kiss on that luscious coal-black Rosie Posey nosie...

Smoooch! (Don't show Auntie Bailey that last photo or she'll shoo you off to a convent obedience school!)

Your Petey

Agatha and Archie said...

Wow that locket is something else!! And the Bermuda bag is divine...it looks like you can fit a LOT of stuff in it......how many of your toys do you think it will hold!! Looks like you all had a lovely day...it was FREEZING here today..Love A+A

Tank woo fur sharing!


Mason Dixie said...

Awe Alfie, I hope your mom shipped you express in that parcel, I could not bare the thought of you being shipped for weeks. I hope you are bringing along that bottle of spirits you got there. Can not wait to see you, I mean to get my parcel in the mail. =)

Totally Timmy said...

Rosie..I think my Timmy is in love!

Amber and Nala said...

You beagles make me laugh! :) LOVE that last pic. ;) Looks like a gorgeous day by the sea....I am so jealous that you live so close to the sandy beach. :)

I am excited for my package....I will be on the lookout!!


Carolina said...

Gosh, you are creative with the computer! Great pictures. Big smile.

Martha Basset said...

It is too late Petey, I have just seen that bottom picture!!! I think Rosie is going to have to come and live with me - she clearly cannot be trusted to behave like a lady without me supervising!
I am now looking out past episodes of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie for her to watch.
Really I am quite shocked!!!
Aunt Bailey (outraged!)

ps we still have to post on gifts - given we cant get out due to our invalid I will have a think! Your post was brilliant!!!
Gave us a good laugh1

Maggie and Mitch said...

We love the locket! That Petey is just too romantic for words!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch


Hi guys,
what a great lot of gifts! Nice that Rosie thought of all her sibs at home while she was off on a romantic holiday with Petey. That last pic looks like Jazz. By the way mum says you can eat the cherry leaves on the girls day cakes but not the oak leaves. They are very yummy.

Hamish Westie said...

Rosie! too many pictures like that last one and I'm worried your blog won't get past my internet's anti-smut filters...

Love the photos of Roseisle. Gail's promised to take me there next time we're driving west - hopefully in just over a week.

Martha Basset said...

PS We werent as clever as you with our thank you post - our mum just hasnt the imagination!
I do think young Rosie will have to be taken in hand with that pic!!

The Army of Four said...

Dot O said...

Wow, Rosie appears to have had quite a time with Petey an so many memories to treasure forever!

However, that last pose, well, maybe a few weeks at a charm school might be in order here....

LOL. Love the Rosie chronicles!!

Niamh said...

I guess now that you have gone off with Petey, your inner hussy is coming out Rosie.

Your lucky hounds to have such a beautiful beach to run on and sniff around.

Tell Alfie my Pylon used to enjoy a sip of Scotch Whiskey with her master. She preferred Cragenmoore (sp)

Riba said...

Cute pics :)

And congratulations! :))

Eric said...

How thoughtful of Rosie and Petey. Look at Alfie drinking straight out of the bottle. Hope he remembered to unscrew the cap first.

And nice locket Rosie. Cost Petey a pretty packet those platinum lockets from Sniffany's.

Glad to hear you chase the snow away.

Wiry wags, Eric xx

Oh my goodness, Rosie - I'm quite shocked! And I thought you were such a nice girl! :)

Love those photos of the gang with the blue skies...don't know what you were going on about bad weather - it looks gorgeous!

That sky looks like it could be a summers day there.

I am glad we didn't get any snow. The dogs loved it but i was glad when it melted and will be quite happy if we don't get any more here now.

Can't wait for the proper spring and summer! :-)

River said...

You had such a cool trip, Rosie! And all you guys got some neat presents. I think it's almost spring--we do the time change thing this weekend.

love & wags,

I love when someone else makes me laugh - and the rum did it. I had better keep Sola away from your blog for a few days, she has enough bad habits.

I'll never lose the Jiffy bag image :)

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

ha ha ha ha! I lurve lurve lurve your photos, especially the last one!

We think Rosie should keep her paw on her halfpenny, as they used to say, so as not to cause any embarassment in future!

Happy and peaceful weekend to you, we had your snow btw!

lotsaluv, Marvin xxxxxxxxxxx

Petey said...

My Rosie Posey,

I understand you're going to meet Hamish Westie. How very exciting. I have told him not to get any ideas, but I hope you won't have your head turned by his Sean Connery-like older terrier man charms.

I am busy casting Beagadoon. I'm wondering if Snoop should play your father or if I should just change that role to two maiden aunts and cast Miss Martha and Auntie Bailey?

Lots of scruffy snogs...

Your Petey

Toffee said...

We lost you and then we found your beagly bloggie on ERic's chat sidebar thingy!!!

Oh. My. Dog that is quite a picture of your rosie...I mean of YOU Rosie girl!! From the comments above Petey is swooning more than ever now!!!
