A Parcel and Paddy spring update

Hello all!

We are so sorry it has been so long - we have dropped by the blogs when we can - but D has been very busy with house stuff and I can't type as my paw allergies are back. I am currently wearing socks! How embarrassing.

We think it might have to do with a grass allergy .... so now I stick to the paths and only have 'urban' walks - no off road for me! Which I prefer - D brings me to fancier places that is more befitting of someone classy like me!

First I wanted to tell everyone about my lovely Valentine package from my sweetheart Jake and his family! They were so thoughtful - I never received a package before - so I was a little misty eyed....

What is in it....

What pretty paper...

Lovely biccies (Do I have to share?)

What else is in there?

A beautiful hand made scarf - with a mini me on it!!!!! D says that it is just perfect for her - we shall see about that!

There were lovely hand made notebook, Hankies and a beautiful glass bead paperweight - These are now on D's desk and she uses the pad for her auctions and antiques - she calls it her good luck pad....(as she always brings me with her - I do not mind sharing...)

Can I have my biccies now?

Thank you Jake, Miss Fergi, Moma and Nina Girl - you made some furry people happy!

Now an update from Paddy....

Finally, I get a word in....just wanted everyone to know that spring has sprung and that it will be my Gotcha Day soon (Easter Sunday) - so the next blog will be about me and my story...but I thought I would show everyone that spring has finally arrived in our little corner of the world - the crocuses are a little down trodden (it has been raining a lot) plus I like to sit on them but the Dippy Daffs are on their way to full happiness!

Me and some flat crocus

Here we are admiring the flowers (our pal Gyp is in the background - he likes running through the flowers with his ball)

Come on - bloom already!!!

Here are some D has grown in her garden - she has brought a few in .... we love their orange beards - we look like that when we have spaghetti bolognese!

I tried to tell Mr Mouse that is was Spring and to wake up and come out and play - but he didn't...he lives under our shed (You will hear Mr Crow is in the background calling him out as well...) and he never comes out to play with me...

Did I say something wrong?

Smell you later!


Sally and Paddy

  10. There's a bounce back in my step! I got to see my Sweet Sally! We're so happy Life let up a little so that you could sneak in an update with pictures. (Agatha and Archie will be glad to know that I watched Paddy's video VERY carefully so I can start the make the transition from bird dog to earth dog. I have to admit, it did look intriguing. And I'm guessing your moma doesn't have to take those wicked toenail crunchers to you nearly as often as mine does) We've been thinkin' aboutcha lots, hoping all the necessary day to day things are letting up ... Moma says to write and give us an update. Whatever happened to the potential Foster Doggie?

    We're gonna be back and back and back, looking at all your pretty crow cusses (we HEARD him!) and daffydills. Moma 'specially likes the pretty bearded one. We can see some green shoots poking up (at the moment), but that's all to change this afternoon. AGAIN!.

    I love you, Sally. We all think about you a lot. Make sure your moma gives you (and Paddy - looking so forward to your Easter Day Gotcha Day this year! Wow! A double special celebration) a very big hug, pat, kiss and TREAT!

    Your devoted friend Jake, and Miss Fergi (and family!)

  11. Glad you're back. Just in time for spring, well, autumn. Let's play!!
    What great pressies you got.
    We love the Sag Bol shot!!

  12. You had a lot of catching up to do. Nice to see you again. Now what is this smell you later about? ;)

  13. Hi Sally and Paddy, thanks for stopping by to visit us. We are sorry to hear about that grass allergy. We wouldn't like that at all. Hope you are doing better. What a great bunch of pressies from Jake and Fergi - they and their mom are the nicest, aren't they?

    We have rabbits under our deck and Thunder keeps trying to figure out how to get under there too.

    And that croe - wow, he is loud.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  14. Hi Sally and Paddy,
    Yes I do have 6 roses left. A girl can't live without roses!! Tell D that she should be able to find a lot of old garden roses in a goolge search. I see them all the time at our nurseries. I know you are across the pond so you might have to buy online.
    Good luck, Bambi and Fern

  15. Hi guys!
    Just checking in to see if Mr Mouse ever came out to play.

    You must have been exhausted waiting for him to come out!

    If he doesn't come out I'm sure you'll find another spring creature to play with!! YAY

    xox, Autumn

  16. Sally you sweet little darlin'!! Seems like forever since we've seen you. Welcome back!!Love the pic of you begging. Soooo cute.


  17. I am sooooo happy you enjoyed the pressies. :) It was great fun putting it all together and sending it was lots of hugs and kisses. :)

    For the socks, it's okay. I'm sure if Jake could wear them, he totally would. He hates walking on anything that might get his feet dirty. I just think he needs to man-up. haha ;)

    It looks like you are having a wonderful start to your spring. I hope your allergies get better
