Happy Birthday LP ! I wore my best dress and bows just for you!

Happy Birthday LP! I hope your day is filled with lots of treats and lots of fun!

Happy Birthday LP! Let's go for a long walk today, somewhere beautiful to watch the sunset together.

Happy Birthday LP! I'm going to give you even more love and cuddles than I usually do, on your special day!

Happy Birthday LP! I'm going to ring my bow tie bell just for you today!

Fashion Friday with Duffy and Celine.

 Duffy, " Sniff, sniff, sniff. You are correct, Celine! These sticks are the best!"

 Duffy, " And the best thing is that there are TWO sticks! One for you and one for me!"

 Duffy, " Whoopsies! I forgot this is my Fashion Friday shoot! Hi ya! Can you please forgive my oversight and rudeness?!"

 Duffy, " Let's begin again shall we?! This week I am joined by my friend Celine on the jetty, as well as by Wilhelmina and Avalon.  I'm throwing the girls a raspberry here as my way of letting them know they need to stay away until my fashion shoot is completed!"

Duffy, " Today I am pairing my knitted monkey sweater, with a flannel animal bandana!"

Duffy, " Here is a better view of my flannel bandana."

Duffy, " Here is my best pose!"

Duffy, " Of course I could only keep the girls away for so long! "

The Obligatory Three Dog Pose! Avalon, Wilhelmina and Celine.

Duffy, " That's a wrap for this week folks! See you next week for another installment of, Fashion Friday."

Have a Fabulous Friday!
See you soon.

A few words on Wednesday with Malou.

Malou, " Uh oh! Where are they taking all my hanging toys and tree?!"

Malou, " What am I going to whap and climb in my free time?!"

Malou, " I hope they leave me something to play with or I will need to find another distraction to replace the imminent death of my Christmas tree and toys!"

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
See you soon.

Happy Birthday Avalon!


AVALON as a puppy living with her special and wonderful rescuers at, Ibizan Hound Rescue, in Spain.

Still searching for the perfect family while in Spain and now Avalon is ten months old! This photo was taken in her Spanish village in an attempt to expose her to more stimuli, days before she arrived in Canada to us, her forever family.

After two long flights from Spain to Toronto, and from Toronto to Vancouver, it's good to finally be home and to sleep off my long journey!

From the street life to the sweet life!

Wearing Wilhelmina's hand-me-downs!

I have furblings ; two pups and two kitties!

 Happy Birthday Avalon! Hip Hip Hooray!! I now have one more dog in my kingdom to steal food from!

Happy Birthday Avalon! Thank you for taking such good care of my cat toys ;p

I have friends!

 The Sweet Life.

Too cute to spook!


 Me and Nymeria, my fellow Spanish Sighthound and friend!

The tradition of Christmas torture begins!

Always nice and some times naughty . . .

Happy Birthday Avalon! I love you my affectionate, little sis!

Happy Birthday Avalon! I love having a mischievous, playful and sweet little sisfur!

Happy Birthday Avalon! I'm so happy I have a Spanish " mini-me" who also likes to explore and to discover all the smelly stuffs!

Happy Birthday Avalon! Can I just say, I find everything about you fun, fast and kinda tasty?! (especially your jackets! ;p)

It has been a whirlwind two months since my arrival in Vancouver!  I'm having a wonderful birthday surrounded by my family and friends. I love my new life and everything in it, and that would include all of you!

Happy 1st Birthday Avalon! Love, LP, Daddyman, Duffy, Wilhelmina, Malou and Levon,  your ever enamored family who love you now and forevermore.

Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.
