We are a bit delayed in writing this post and we can only blame D. She is a bit slow - but she does try her best and she has a lot of work to do - so we do not give her too much of a hard time!
Well as you know it was Easter and that is Paddy's Gotcha Day (of sorts) - he is doing well, he has had no further trouble with his eye - thank DOG. He had one minor pancreatic attack - but D & C got him to the Emergency Vets on time for lots of pain killers and anti-emetics! So he was right as rain very quickly! So far no more problems, paws crossed he stays that way for a long time! Here is a photo of him in his Easter outfit - the scarf was a gift from the Rocky Creek Scotties - we think it suits him - don't you? We would take picture of his Birthday supper - but because he has such a restricted diet - we didn't think you would want to see a plate of steamed white fish! Not sure he was that thrilled either....
Also the following weekend was the Royal Wedding - it was on the 29th of April, 2011 - just in case you were cloistered in a convent and did not see the news! Well, D is not a royalist, BUT she does love a celebration. Well, we enjoyed all the excitement and build up to the Wedding and we watched it with Billions of other people. (I got to attend with my sweetheart Jake - I was so thrilled to be part of this wonderful event - D and Paddy sat on the couch in front of the TV ooohhhing!! and aaahhhing!) Here I am with darling Prince Jake...
You can see all of the fun on Asta's Blog, or Scruffy, Lacie and Stan's blog - and I do not think Royal Events are the same without us doggies!
It was a great event and after all the bad news you hear every day - we really enjoyed all the good vibes! We thought they really cared for each other and were in love and we wish them all the best. Well, D isn't one to let an occasion pass and went on a spending spree of buying all things 'Royal' and British - its a sickness she just can't stop. She went to her favourite sushi restaurant - and ordered the Royal Nori wrapped hand cone - sorry no photo - she devours sushi quickly I am afraid! But she got to keep the dish...
She even bought Washing Up liquid (Dish soap) because it had a Royal Wedding theme to it!!!
BUT we have all decided that she should share all this Royal bounty with our friends on the blogs.
You see, we have missed you all terribly, and enjoy reading about your exploits and adventures. We are a little sad that people don't blog as much (this includes us!) - we understand - but we miss our friends nonetheless. We have so much to be thankful for - and we are tail wagging happy to be part of this community. So we have decided to share the love! Yes, D has put together 3 Royal Prizes to give away. They are all royal themed and a souvenir of the wedding too! And maybe a few extra surprises thrown in before we post them! Here they are:
The rules of this competition are easy - all you have to do is leave a comment telling us what you love and / or are thankful for! Thats it! We want everyone to tell us their Good news - the things that make you happy - and if you are happy that makes us even more happy!
Somewhere around the 20th of May- we will put all the names in a hat and pick out three randomly. We will post on our blog the winners and post the goodies anywhere in the world!
Now that has put a smile on all our faces! Good Luck !
Lots of licks
