We Have A Winner, Award, True Colours and Alfie's Song

We have a winner for our Easter Bunny hunt! Petey worked his little paws to the bone, found all eleven blogs that Rambo appeared on and was the first to comment with the correct answers, so the pink bunny will be going across the pond to his new furever home soon.

Well done Petey, and everyone else who came so close....thanks to everyone who played and special thanks to Rambo's gracious hosts!

They were:

Honey the Great Dane....dancer & model

Paco & Milo, the Italian Hunks

Ammy, Dave, Zim and Stormy, the Army Of Four

Stanislaw and Big Pupi, beastly feasters

Eduardo the Snuggle Puggle

Stella, Queen of Minniesnowda

Lorenza, First Hound of Fashion

Our mid-Atlantic Hero and his awesome 'do

Cocoa & Barley, The 2 Mighty Beans

Miss Floofy Tail, Khyra of Pawnsylvania

And Dennis the Vizsla Dog, who lives in a Mithikal Land


We were given this lovely bouquet of pink roses by The Army of Four and Chester....thanks guys n gals, they're so pretty!

We would like to pass the bouquet on to all of our bunny hosts named above...and to Ben the Rotti for putting up with us being a pain in the derriƩre about the bloomin rabbit, sorry Ben...thanks, and we hope Mollie is better soon! (Can everyone who put the bunny on their blog email us with your address, we'd like to send you all a wee token of our appreciation.....also everyone who submitted a Red Snooter picture :D)

Also, roses for the very beautiful and oh so clever Naloma. We found out this morning that last night she gave birth to a sweet little (big!) foal....many congratulations to Carolina and well done Naloma! Why not go and see the pics for yourself, she's a real cutie!

Nala, one of our first blog friends just celebrated her 3rd Birthday, Happy Birthday Nala, have some roses :o)

And lastly we'd like Asta to have the roses too, her sister is getting married soon and she's carrying out her extensive bridesmaid duties to a tee, she and her Mom really have their work cut out!


It's True Colours Thursday! This week's theme is BLACK & WHITE. To join in visit our hostess, Blue.

My photos didn't come out great as when I did them the light wasn't brilliant. Most of my clothes are either BLACK or BLACK & WHITE!

Newspapers, traditionally BLACK & WHITE are becoming increasingly colourful.

Tricolour Beagles are born BLACK & WHITE

Zebras.....BLACK & WHITE

Click on the BLACK & WHITE Magpie for British lore on Magpies.

Alot of our furry friends above are BLACK & WHITE and so is one of our newest friends, Checkers

Checkers sent us this lovely Easter card, thanks pal! Next week's colour....LIME!

Alfie breaks into song for no obvious reason....

Petey said...

What a fun and very tricky contest! I got to visit a ton of blogs that I've never been to before and will be sure to go back and visit again. You come up with the BEST contests.

Just went over to see the new foal. So sweet.

Rosie-Posie, if your Mommy's clothes are mostly black, she may just be a secret New Yorker! Black is the official color in most every New Yorker's wardrobe.

Well, busy day today! Granny is arriving this afternoon so we have LOADS to do before she arrives!

(We haven't had nearly enough snuggling time lately, Rosie! Don't worry...our trip to Rome is fast approaching!!!)

Lots of grateful kisses,

Your Petey

Jake of Florida said...

We were so clueless -- so we are in awe of your cleverness and artistry and patience and fun-loving spirit and how many good friends you have --- and the list goes on and on.

We told our Mom we may be moving to Scotland if she doesn't get with it!!!

Congrats to all the players. We found Khyra and that's about it!!!

Gabbi, we got a sneak peek at your outfit for the wedding -- and it is pawfect. Can't say more!!!

Wirey love to all of you -- but extra smooches to my sweetie!!

Life With Dogs said...

There is always room for a good Alfie tune. :)

Hero said...

Congrats to Petey! That really was a fun and creative game. As a bunny host I couldn't play, but I still enjoyed reading the hints and trying to guess where else that rabbit had been. I could only guess maybe 4-5 just from the hints. Thanks for the bouquet!

Martha Basset said...

Well done Petey, to be honest it was too much like hard work for our mum!! You just cant get the staff.
We enjoyed the video with lots and lots of beach!
That Alfie should be proud to be a member of the hound family - what a singing voice.
Have a good Easter
Martha & Bailey xx

Mason Dixie said...

Wow Petey worked really hard, I did know a quite a few of them but a couple I have never met before. What a great game. =) What a lovely card from Checkers too, he is such a good friend. and Alfie do not worry, your mom may think you were barking for no reason, but I heard you loud and clear and I promise to keep it between you and me. wink wink. =)
