True Colours, Awards, Contests and Videos Galore!

It's True Colours Thursday again! To play along visit our hostess Blue.

This week's theme is RUST. I photographed this winch just for the Mono Maniacs post as I thought it would look good in black and white but of course it fits perfectly here too!

The tank blocks at Findhorn have RUSTY metal loops on top.

Also RUST....or maybe RUSSET, our good pals Jana and Dennis the Vizslas.

We could also have photographed the dog wagon, hehe.

Next week's colour is RAINBOW, can't wait!


So we went to Findhorn again....these were taken on Tuesday, same day as the King of the Castle photos, it was a dull afternoon.

I'm sorry to have to tell you this Mr Pillbox....I think you might have crabs! Bwahahahaha!

And again....a sunnier day, not many pics today...mostly videos!

Rosie waits patiently for her pedicure....


Mason Dixie is running a contest to see who has the most swing in their step, the most strutt in their stuff, you know, the most wiggle in their waggle! Click on the wiggly butt above to find out more! So we thought we'd give it a go....

Alfie has a rumba in his bumba....

Snoop has a spring in his step....

Gabbi has a wiggle in her jiggle....

....and Rosie gets her knickers in a twist!
Phew, we feel a nap coming on now....zzzzzzzzzzz....


Our lovely friend Thor gave us this award, obrigado Thor!

We would like to pass this very pretty award on to some new friends....AliceBean, Baby Rocket Dog & Hootie, Amber and her sweet Amberettes, Joey and Zeke and Scottie....we've known Scottie and his sisters for a while now but he doesn't have many awards....aww!


Scottie himself gave us this award, thanks Scottie!

This award is presented to those dog bloggers out there who know the meaning of GREATNESS. Their blogs are consistently interesting, funny, or informative. Their KINDNESS is extended to others without expectation of it’s return, and their FRIENDSHIP inspires others to do EXTRAORDINARY things. These are the blogs you can’t wait to read everyday. In short, they are AWE-INSPIRING, full of wonder, and simply PAWsome!Pass this award on to 4 others who you feel exemplify a “Paw”some Blog, and leave a note saying why you think they deserve the Pawsome Award!”

We are passing this one on to Thor, because his happy face always makes us smile, Maggie & Mitch, for being great blog friends to everyone, Cocoa & Barley because their antics are hilarious and our dear Aunties, Martha and Bailey for always looking out for us and being game for a laugh :D Sorry for only picking four....them's the rules!



Thank you all for your lovely comments after Alfie's win on Sunday!

Wowzer what a post. So much to look at and watch. I see it was very windy there, just like here today. I loved the walking videos, Alfie's yours is the best of course. =)
And again congrats on being #1 Not only at the show but in my heart. xoxo Mason

Wooo loads to view, but my favorite was Snoop in the water, although watching his little butt wiggle was cute too!
Congrats on all of the awards, you deserve them all.
And Snoop, now, no getting your Mommy worried, you must stay home for now, we will see each other soon, I have Mommy wrapped around my little paw, she never stays mad at me for more than a day.
Love, Kira The BeaWootiful

How cool! Congrats on the win!
My mom would love to watch a live dog show sometime.

Amber and Nala said...

That wiggle contest is too funny! A little human pup that used to come over here always told my Mom that I was prissy because I my backside wiggled when I walked. ;) Mom thought it was funny and she couldn't convince the kid that it was just the way I walked...she was sure I was being a princess dog. :)

Martha Basset said...

Came back to look at the videos cos we just now there is going to arooing and we have to join in!
They were all good, liked the ones where you guys are in the water and particularly liked the shadow one! We thought that was clever.

Fab bustling backsides!

And that's such a good photo of you and Alfie, Nicky. You'll have to frame it.

Stella said...

Whoooeeee! We loved the picture of Mrs. Dughallmor and Alfie at the show. So very classy!

But then your jokes: uhh, like this one: I'm sorry to have to tell you this Mr Pillbox....I think you might have crabs! Bwahahaha
So very very tacky! But perhaps I could admit I got a laugh after Mom explained it to me.
