Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan, I confess, Dear Friends, that I have made no headway in my quest to have #1 install pillows in all my favourite sleeping spots. However, she had added a pillow in my most favourite spot and that is simply marvellous!

And this is the single pillow on the other side of the sofa:

On step at a time, right?

Manly Monday

Tommy: I love getting all wet chasing my ball in the morning dew!

Vidock: It is very studly to keep yourself in shape by doing little canters around your field:

Da Beebs: I don't have to do anything. I just need to be me...

Da Genj: From me to you, with love and purrs.

Snuggles on Sunday - SPECIAL!

Tama-Chan: So, we did mention that we had a guest coming this weekend, right? Well, we didn't realise just how much of an animal-lover and snuggler #1's nephew was! He is also a dab hand with a selfie stick so we have some fun pics to share with you this week! Needless to say, the boys (who shall remain nameless but whose names start with a G and a B) were total tarts. Enough said...

Here he is with Tommy:

And yes, Gentle Readers, that is me!

Here he is with Violette's Mama and sister:

We think this one with Hotesse is pretty cute!

And here are a couple with Miss Violette:

He did get to meet the Big V too, of course!

As for Sei-Chan, well she was snuggling with Tommy!

We hope you enjoyed this special edition SoS. We shall return to regular programming next week.

Sei-Chan: Well, our guest arrived late last night and we are all looking forward to getting to know him today. Needless to say, that Blue Boy was all over him the minute he got here!

You remember my sister Tama saying that she would like to have pillows in all her favourite places, so she could rest her head? Well, I have discovered that if you ask nicely, you get what you want! I had made it quite clear to #1 that I wanted a resting space ON her desk, so I could keep a really close eye on her. Understand that the space on her desk is usually one big mess... But look what happened:

OK, so I may have been slacking a teeny bit on my supervising duties, but... this one's better!

Now, take a look at this photo:

#1 says I have very cute paws, AND she says I know how to arrange them like the perfect Japanese lady! After all, I am named after a great Japanese court lady of old, Sei Shonagon! 

There is much to be pleased about. Really.

I hope you all have a lovely SEIturday!

Violette & Vidock Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! It seems like it's been such a long time. I guess with all the goings-on with the big boy, I haven't been getting much air time. But that doesn't mean that #1 has forgotten me! In fact, she has been coming to visit even more often than usual, and she never forgets my apples and carrots,

We have a big hay dispenser in our field:

But if I stand here, by the fence, I know she'll come!

You see! I told you she would come!

You did bring me my carrots and apples, right, #1?

And here is my Mama, Hôtesse, also waiting for #1 to bring her her apples each day:

She has the loveliest eyelashes! 

Vidock: Studly Neighs, EveryFriend! I am doing well and am now back to being out in my field 24/7. I have to tell you I love the great outdoors, so that works for me!

#1 says it's because I like to stand there and look romantic...

I can also exercise when I feel like it!

Of course, I come right over when I see that #1 has arrived:

You're going to make it worth my while, right, #1?

We're expecting a visitor this weekend! He's arriving at Poupounette Central this evening and will come and visit us tomorrow. He is #1's nephew, visiting all the way from Chile!

Tommy Thursday

Tommy: Well, the days are drawing in (we move to winter time on October 30th) and it's been getting cooler and rainier, but #1 and know how to stay busy! We have been going for our walks in the fields, where Hôtesse, Doucette and Wowie are always waiting for their apples. I also accompany her whenever possible, even when she goes to business meetings. So, yesterday, we were here:

That's the place where #1 had her photo exhibition last year! Now, she is working on organising an exhibition for a well-known Japanese horse photographer. So, there was also some office meeting time... 

I have to sit quietly for some time at such meetings, but that's OK, because when we get home, I get to run in the fields!

I'm a lucky woofie!

Whiskers on Wednesday

Vidock: Neighs, Everyone! The Big V here! #1 has been having rather a fun time with her camera lately, and we thought we would show you the results Now, how about this for a whiskery close-up?

Genji; It is a universally acknowledged truth that I have the BEST whiskers at Poupounette Central, and I can prove it!

Tommy: I have whiskers too!

 Sei-Chan: A picture is worth a thousand words...

Tama-Chan: The Queen rests her case.

Da Beebs: Baby whiskers!

Violette Whiskers!
