At. Long. Last!!

Hi furries and peeps and welcome to our

.....AND.....we're back online at last!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To say that we're glad to say bye-bye to the library is the understatement of the century! But it has been useful....we've managed to post a couple of times, keep up with some blog friends on Facebook, look what our buddies over at the AO4 gave us....how cool is this?? It's our new Facebook profile!

....and even make a few new friends, pick up our peemail and read all your lovely comments....how lovely that we still got so many visits, and even gained a couple of new followers even though we were unable to return the compliment....thanks guys, we'll be round to see you soon :D :D

It's been months since we went offline, infact it was around the time that we discovered our Rosie wasn't in pup, back in June. Of course, since then we've had happier times.....Rosie and Petey had a beautiful wedding which was celebrated by all our blogging friends and they are now back from their Roman honeymoon.
Mamma Mia, they're even more loved-up now....photos to follow, watch this space....and Petey's blog! Rosie and her girls had a wild hen party and the damage was evident in the morning....

....and just look at the state of Alfie when he got home from Petey's stag weekend....oh deeery me!


Well, you all know what Mother is like with the camera....so we have squillions of photos to post....so many infact that we've had to condense them into -wait for it- collages! (you can biggify all of them if you want)

We've been to Findhorn for lovely evening romps along the beach.


Seen pretty skies.

More walkies, this time at the park....

Met up with some old friends....

We went to a different beach to see another friend. This is Mollie and she goes to our club, or at least, she did. Her human, Jodi is moving to Australia with her Mum, infact they left yesterday :o( and Mollie is going to stay with her Papa in Burghead....we hope we still see her and wish Jodi and her Mum the best of luck with their wonderful new life Down Under....miss you already Jodi!

It was SO COOL! We ran riot on the beach, up and down the dunes....Mollie played chase with us for a while but she prefers to be in the sea (brrr!) so we went exploring. You may know about Gabbi's fear of bridges.....well, the one to the beach at Lossiemouth is quite long, pretty high....and you can see the water through the wooden slats....so she did very well, don't you think?

We had some very strange winged visitors. First, a butterfly came into our house (you probably heard the human girls screaming) C'mere Mr Flutterby....we just want a little taste, you look....a bit tasty!

And then....look who's resting on top of our shed...a baby seagull is right outside, about 5ft away as we type....what a cheek!!! (tastes just like salty chicken. Fish and bird all rolled into one....what an efficient meal!)

We bark and howl at him but he still just sits there gawping at us!

Gabbi's "adventure" last week (see previous post) is still fresh in our minds but she's all better now, her pad is completely healed.....thanks so much for all your kind words :o)

Petey and Rosie gave Gabbi a present incase she ever pulls a stunt like that again....introducing....

....GABBI-CAM!

To celebrate her safe return Mum made us a liver and honey cake *yums* and she even let us lick the bowls and spoons *double yums* Alfie got his ears all crusty with cake dough, hehe!

*sigh* Is it ready yet????


While we waited we did the next best thing to eating....zzzzz....


Another walk and a roll in the sand at Findhorn....

...we saw moody skies, oilrigs and early blackberries.


And finally, on Sunday we went back to Duffus Castle....

.....still didn't see Tanner though....or Just Harry! But Alfie found a frisbee ring and teased us all with it....

....Rosie jumped in the moat, well it's more like a ditch. (top left in the collage)

And we did a spot of modelling for Mrs Snap-Happy....spot the world's biggest poser!

So that's us all up to date now....we've missed you all so much that we'll have to visit you all before posting again. Hopefully next week we'll pick up some of the memes and get back to more regular blogging.

Petey said...

WoooWOOO!!!! Hooray! The bestest beagles are back!

Ahhh, I feel so much happier seeing those wonderful photos of my Rosie Posie....or should I call her Posey Rosie? She's a way prettier model than Kate Moss or Gisele Bundchen!

250 awesome posts - can't wait for the next 250!

Oodles of whiskery kisses,

Your Petey

We are sooooo glad you are back! You know how much we enjoy your posts! We've been telling .... FARFEL! ... all about them. And all about you and your lovely Mommy. Yep! He started blogging just recently. Stop by and say "hi" WHEN YOU GET A CHANCE! We know how long catching up can take. Take your time. Enjoy being back in the comfort of your own home. We are soooo glad you are back! Yipee!!!

Barks and barks and wags and wiggles of excitement,

Jake of Florida said...

We have to join in the celebration -- a barking, howling, joyful noise. We've missed you all -- and all your wonderful photos and adventures. We got glimpses from time to time, but not nearly enough.

Now that Gabbi has her own Gabbi-cam -- do you think she and our Heron-cam, Mr. H.C. Bird, might collaborate on new adventures?

Welcome back, sweet Gabbi. Welcome back Snoop, Alfie, and Rosie! Welcome back long-suffering mom, aka "Ms. Snap-Happy" (perfect moniker bestowed by the beagles!).

Wirey love to all!!

Jake and Just Harry

Chester said...

WOW! A lovely way to catch us all up post! What a better way to celebrate 250 than to actually not have to go to the library.
I only wish I had more time to keep up with all the wonderful happenings. I love that you are on FB now too so at least we can chat.
Mom and I only got to see part of the wedding and if she ever settles her rear down she wants to watch the whole thing. I, for one only noticed the beautiful bride and her lovely bridesmaid, Mason D. Well, thanks for posting about all your wonderful lives so that we may all enjoy your craziness!
With many hugs and slimy slobbers,
Chester :0=)

It is lovely to see you back - and what a post! We have had to come back and have another read there was just too much for us to take in.
Well, you know we came out bottom in the IQ ratings for dogs in the latest research!!!
We loved all your pictures and of course your wonderful collages - we have been experimenting with collages ourselves now. They are fun!
Many congratulations on your 250th post!

Cookie and Cinnamon's Mum said...

Congratulations on your 250th post! We are glad you are back online at home. It seems so much is happening over there. It's good to know that Gabbi's pad has been healed. I love the photo of Alfie's strange face :-)

Honey the Great Dane said...

Yay!! It's great to have you guys back - and all your gorgeous photos as usual! Wow - looks like lots has been going on...glad to hear that Gabbi is none the worse for wear after her mad adventure!!

Mmm...that liver & honey cake looks so yummy!! Maybe I can get mu human to bake me one for my birthday in Oct? She's usually useless at baking anything but your recipe looks like even she might manage it!!

Hey - when you guys get time to come around and visit me, make sure you check out my latest post (it's called "Yay, I finally did it!") coz it's got Cinnamon trying some doggie dancing! Yup, she took part in a 1min busking event for newbies at our last Canine Freestyle show and did so well for someone who has never been up in front of an audience and had zero experience! YOu should be so proud of her - keeping the end up for beagles!! :-) So make sure you check out that video of her dancing debut! Oh, and I did really well too - finally! - I managed to do my new routine without jumping up to bash Hsin-Yi on the head or zoning out or anything...my humans were so proud of me! :-)

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

Congrats on the 250th post!!! WTG! Love the beagle collages and the sunset collages, and the butterfly pictures and, of course, the baby seagull.

I'm behind on blogging and will remain so for a while longer. Too many other things going on right now but I did manage to post a few pics of one of my furkids. The senior furkid was not around at the time I shot these of our ocean romp. I will be posting more eventually if I can actually get somebody to romp!!!

Hope to chat soon - in the coming weeks for sure.
