Parks, Driftwood and Blossoms!





Duffy, " Hi ya! It's been really sunny and lovely here in Vancouver lately. Spring has sprung and we have dug up our favourite balls to play with in the park !"






Avalon, " Got my ball!"






Wilhelmina, " Got my ball!"





Duffy, " Got my ball!"




Duffy, " Wilhelmina is very good about sharing her ball with me when we play in the park even though I have a ball of my own."





Avalon and Duffy, having a ball!





Avalon, " My favourite thing in the whole, wide world is my ball!"








Wilhelmina, " My favourite thing in the whole, wide world is my ball!"












Avalon, "Duffy, come and get your ball or I will be obligated to keep it!"







Duffy, " It's hard work fitting this in my mouth!"






Duffy, " I also wanted to tell you about the view we saw while playing in the park."

Duffy, " We are all three, ball crazed puppies, but Avalon loves her ball best! Whispers . . . we have to bribe her with high value treats in order to put her on lead when it is time to leave the park!"



Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

Sunday Selfies : It's beginning to look a lot like Spring!





We are joining the kitties at, Kitties Blue, for their Sunday Selfies Blog Hop! 
We have quite a few entries today from our fun sessions in the sun this past week. April is a month that leaves us with plenty of rain showers here in Vancouver, Canada. Fortunately, we also get beautiful, sunny days during the month of April which we enjoy to the fullest when we have the chance! We hope you enjoy our efforts.

Fashion Friday : A Snood in the Hood in the Woods!







 Duffy, " Welcome to another edition of Fashion Friday. This week I've decided to feature Avalon's snood. It came all the way from the Netherlands!"





 Duffy, " I chose to wear a striped bandana today to compliment Avalon's striped snood."







 Duffy, " I wanted to tell you a bit about the snood before Avalon models it for you. The snood is made by a really lovely woman by the name of Lenny. She lives all the way in the Netherlands. Lenny has a small non-profit business called ,Galgo Mutsen, which she grows in her spare time. She knits snoods, sells them and gives all her profit from the sale of the snoods, to help galgo rescues. The rescues in turn help galgos like Avalon, find their forever homes. All rescues who save galgos , spend lots of green papers to help the hounds in their care who are often in very poor condition upon arriving. We greatly admire people like Lenny who make a difference in rescue work. Lenny sacrifices her spare time then lends her talents to generate green papers to donate to a worthy and deserving cause."

A tasty snood!






Dances with the snood!






Thank you for my snood Ms. Lenny. I love it! Thank you also for all that you do to help galgos. We appreciate you so very much.








Duffy, " Of course you all know the snood posing was the calm before the storm. Once the snood came off, the madness commenced!"

























Duffy, " I had such high hopes for the girls for our forest photo shoot this week! I do try to remind myself that they are both still youngsters. I tell myself they still have puppy brains, even though they appear to be giants and full grown compared to little ole me!"





Meeting a  friend at the neighbourhood water hole.






Hide and seek! Avalon's favourite game.






Find the stump!











Duffy, " I must confess, I also love to play, find the stump! "






Duffy, " Here is our best pose!"




Have a Fabulous Friday!
See you soon.
