Post #201....Birthday Boy, Paw it Forward & Other Stuff

Hello furries and peeps!

We might not have been posting but we've had an action-packed few days....we've been to Roseisle....

....Findhorn....see the bunny?

Roseisle again....

....the Muiry Wood....we saw bluebells, not as nice as Eric's ones though....instead of nodding their shy heads to Spring, ours are wondering what happened to it today!

....Gabbi wants to be like Scottie and Chester....

This is a view from outside our training class, taken on Monday evening.

And today is Snoop's birthday, he is five...though by the time this is posted it will be tomorrow!

It was drizzling all day but we went on one of Snoop's favourite walks, around Sanquhar Loch with plenty to sniff! We met our old friends Harvey and Chloe and walked with them for a bit.

And we saw fuzzy baby ducks, so cute!

We did all this and still managed to attend Myrna & Gilbert's wedding in Salzburg where we met up with our sweethearts, don't we look grand? And just look at Aunties Martha and Bailey, who knew they had such long slender legs!

Snoop and Kira must have been....err....busy! We all had a wonderful time and would like to thank Asta for all her hard work....as well as being Myrna's bridesmaid she was wedding photographer AND helped with some of our outfits....thank you Asta! We also wish Myrna & Gilbert a wheelie long and happy life together and await the clatter of tiny wheels :D


We played Paw it Forward with Rosie-Marie and our parcel came!

All beautifully wrapped in pink spotty tissue paper :D

Rosie's humans have just come back from their holiday and they included some souvenirs for our Mum from the Dominican Republic....a cute coin purse and a foot fridge magnet with sand in the toes!

A cool squeaky toy and some eatables for us, including some delicious Max-A-Million treats from Honey's Bakery....they were so good we had to stop Liam from eating them!

....and a cool bandana for each of us so we can be the height of doggy fashion!

What a generous parcel Rosie, thank you so much!

Here we are sampling our treats.....mmmmmmm!

So who want to play Paw it Forward with us? If you're one of the first three to comment and you want to play then email us your address!

Here are the rules. "The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and 'paw it forward' in their own way. This is how it works... We are going to agree to send something fun, inspiring or uplifting to the first 3 blog owners who post a comment on this entry. In turn you will then post about this on your blog, link to us, then send something to the first three people who sign up to play along through your blog. There are no cost restraints, BUT don't go crazy! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found. No biggie, just a gift that will make the person smile. Maybe something unique from where you live? And, remember that kindness don't have to involve money; there are untold ways to help others every single day, everywhere you go - just look around." SO PAW IT FORWARD...


We are putting our shades on for Clive! To find out why just visit Clive's blog, a button will also be put in our sidebar :D

Some silly sets of four....you can just see Alfie's tail in this first set of Snoop.

Alfie is exactly in time with the camera...the same position in each photo.

Daphne and Pruett have a new contest for May, it's called "Show us some tongue", looks like good fun....maybe you have a great tongue shot? We're sure we have a few, why not check it out!

And finally....Snoop's birthday cake....liver and garlic with cream cheese icing....and he shared it with us....mmmm!

(Snoop isn't really into toys, it's all about the food! He also got some chocolate covered bones and ravioli treats.)

We'll do the #200 prize drawing tomorrow, (we have now disabled comments on that post) and we still have Clive's tag to do...we're beginning to wish we hadn't taken our wee holiday....we got caught up by doing all our visits but you've probably all posted again....and we have so much to post ourselves :o)

Thank you all for your sweet comments on our #200 and good luck in the draw!

Happy Birthday Snoop! You are a really lucky beagle, as you got such nice birthday treats, not only the cake but also the walk to your favorite place.

Love your photo collages. I would like to try making one myself. Looks fun!

By the way, May Day is not a holiday in New Zealand. But, instead, we have Labour Day (a public holiday) in October.

LizzyBean said...

Happy Birthday to sweet Snoop! Who cares about a bit of drizzle when you're walking? Especially in such a great place? I think it even intensifies the sniffing! Or so Alice says. Alice and I aspire to go on a walk with all the D. Beagles some day -- we love to see where you walk! Loved the package -- so many nice treats. Do all the beagles do training class? Are the girls still on leads?

The Devil Dog said...

Wow, action packed is right. Happy Birthday Snoop. Great photos, great tales and great tails! lol
