Almost Wordless Wednesday : A new coat for Wilhelmina!





 Wilhelmina, " Guess what? I have a new coat! It's very special because it was custom-made for me by my Auntie Y. Auntie Y is my BFF Mia's, Mama."








 Wilhelmina, " Isn't it spectacular?!"






 Wilhelmina,  " My new coat fits me like a glove!"
Avalon, "(Can you spot me in the grasses behind Wilhelmina?) I feel your new coat needs a bit of dog gob on it, in order to properly break it in. I can easily provide some authentic wear and tear on your new coat Wilhelmina!"









Wilhelmina, " I LOVE my new coat Auntie Y! I feel oh so pretty! in it. Thank you so much for making it for me XO."




Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
See you soon.

Light therapy with Levon.








Levon, " Well it's still raining in Rainy Vancouver but I have the answer to my need for sun! It's called light therapy! "








Levon, " I don't actually use a light box, I simply hang upside down under a lamp et voila! My winter blues disappear altogether and I have the added pleasure of a head rush!"



















Levon, " Can you spot my fangs? They look very bat-like. I am not a bat! I do not enjoy the dark!"










Levon, " Go away now camera-lady. I need a few more hours of light therapy before I snack and nap!"



Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

Flashback Fashion Friday with Duffy.






 Duffy, " Hi ya! Yup. Another Friday has arrived at our doorstep! Today I decided to delve into my photo archives and choose a few photos of me modeling my bow tie with bell, for this week's Fashion Friday post. These photographs were taken right in the middle of the summer and the sun was shining bright and cheery! We have had seven days of almost non-stop rain here in Vancouver. The weather forecast calls for at least four more days of rain!! I thought it best to remind my fellow Vancouverites as well as any of my blogging friends who are suffering from torrential rains and sun deprivation, that the sun will come out again!"

 Seven days of rain!




 Duffy, " I know this may sound odd, but I actually don't mind the rain because I still get to go out on my adventures, rain or shine! But don't I look extra happy in the shine?!"






 Duffy, " I strongly believe the sun will be visiting us all again and very soon!"















Duffy, " Here is my best pose!"













Have a Fabulous Friday!
See you soon.

Fashion Friday : Canada Pooch.







 Duffy, " Hi ya! I cannot believe another Fashion Friday has arrived at our doorstep but here we are! Today I will be modeling my red, Canada Pooch jacket, paired with my houses all in a row print, flannel bandana!"






 Duffy, " Here is a close-up of my jacket. It is from the Polar Program for Ultimate Warmth series. It is rain proof ( a must-have in rainy Vancouver!) but it is also suitable for very cold weather!"








 Duffy, " I've paired it with my flannel bandana that has a print of cheerful houses on it, for added warmth!"








 Duffy, " As you may have noticed, my Canada Pooch jacket sports a pocket!"








 Duffy, " I suppose I should tell you what is in the pocket even though I am loath to do that!"








Duffy, "Poop bags! That is what LP requires me to carry on my back. Bags to pick up my ordure!"









Duffy, " Furthermore, to add insult to injury, LP claims she is going to train me to pick up my own waste! How rude!!!"











  
Duffy, " I refuse to waver in the face of this humiliating insult!"









Duffy, " Here is my best pose!"





Have a Fabulous Friday!
See you soon.
