True Colours Thursday - AZURE!

Remember me???
I have had a prolonged enforced rest as Mother, my secretary has been exceedingly remiss regarding helping me to blog; not that she has ignored the Hug & I, we have had lots of cuddles, even if a few of them were damp ones due to her crying because of her blue moods!
In the hope of cheering herself up, she has also been away to Brighton twice, she returned from her most recent trip yesterday, with such red eyes I bearly recognised her - you see, her favourite WFT Jackson who she went to visit, died whilst she was there, and worse still on her actual birthday!
I never meet him personally, probably for the best as he was a notorious de-stuffier of all Stuffies, including I fear superior Bears like myself.
Anyway, pup blog friends of Mother's Doyle & Mollie suggested she buy herself a belated Birthday treat ie a Stuffie in Jackson memory, so she did just that.
Meet Freddie in his AZURE jumper...
You would have thought she would have called him after the Jax!
But no, she decided there was only room for one Jackson in her life, so as she shares her birthday, with the late actor Fred Astaire [10/05/1899 - 22/06/1987], who starred in the 1955 film "Daddy Long Legs" and as you can see my new Hug member has long legs, Freddie it is.
The fact he has an AZURE jumper may have made some impact on her choice of bear this particular week but he seems a fine fellow and maybe he has inherited his namesakes ability to dance.
I have always fancied learning Ballroom dancing, especially now, as then, I could sweep my beloved lady bear friend Miss Rosie off her feet!
Hopefully, it will not be to long before I have another word with you all.
Ear wagging hugs,

My elderly stuffing felt in need of a short period of hibernation.
But, I am back fully refreshed.
So have hustled my most colourful Hug members together for a photographic shot regarding this weeks RAINBOW theme.. And although my greetings are some what late they are bearfelt...Ear wagging hugs,

Wheelie Wednesday - Judy on Scruffs!

Hi, it's me Judy!
I've really exciting news.
There's going to be a Wheelie Dog Show, Scruffs - do click on the poster for all the details & strict entrance rules...Miss Enid Wheelie on Wheels, THE authority on all things relating to Manners of Etiquette will be the hostess with the mostess...
Must remember my P's & Q's in her presence.
But, somewhat worryingly, the Supreme Judge is Eric, Square Dog, whose usual way of greeting wheelies is this...I maybe small but I'm brave enough to face him - I think!!!
Perhaps, I'll let Bailey enter with me!
Then, I can hide under his wheels.
Must get Mummy to smooth down my felt & find an Orange bandanna - it's Eric's favourite colour!
Will post photo's of the event, promise!
Till next time,
Foxy love & wheelie wishes

True Colours Thursday - ORANGE & LEMON!

I thought I was seriously in trouble this week, as when struggling with a colour, Merry has always come to my rescue.
But after Saturdays photograph of her and Master Stormy cuddling, I was in her bad books big time.
Yet, what did she do?
Quietly donned her ORANGE & LEMON floral scarf and rallied Polly Pola & Peaches to the cause too with their appropiate scarfs...
Then, she found one of Mother's Kensitas Flower cards showing an Antirrhinum embroidered in ORANGE & LEMON silks...
And Polly Pola not to be out done, proudly showed off her toy Elephant...Thank-you girls, your help was much appreciated.
Next weeks colour is NAVY - I wonder if I will be pushing my luck with dear Merry if I mention Stormy again!!!
Ear wagging hugs,

Wheelie Wednesday - Judy Ponders!

Hi, it's me Judy!
I'm a sad, very sad 'wheelie', as my crafty creator 'Aunt' Lana, over @ Airedale Heaven, who only recently lost her husband, has now lost her sweet Aire pup Poppy - how cruel is that?
I've also no new photo's today as Mummy's poorly - she imbibed far too much red wine last night in an attempt to lift her flagging spirits - a bad & sad move, as now she is even more depressed!
And Woodstock's down too, having made his first ever post that's not received a single comment, and what's worse, his best friend Merry is upset with him because he made that post in the first place.
Think I'll just go take a nap & hope tomorrow looks 'wheelie' brighter.
Foxy love & wheelie wishes,

Saturday Photo Hunt - Cuddly!

Today's photographic prompt gives me an opportunity to quickly update you on Merry's pursuit of Master Stormy.
Her persistence is obviously paying off, as they were seen to be getting seriously cuddly on St Valentine's Day...I quickly adverted my eyes after this touching moment, as wanted to spare their bear blushes!!!!
Ear wagging hugs,

Wheelie Wednesday - Bailey & Judy makes Pancakes!

Hi everyone, Bailey here, AND me, Judy!
As you can see, I've, we've taken to cooking.
Yesterday was Shrove Tuesday, Pancake day, Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras & Carnival - whatever, it was the day before Ash Wednesday & the start of Lent - that's today!
For those that observe religious thingy bobs, not Mistress for sure; that means 40 days of fasting or trying to give up something one wants big time, like chocolate or alcohol.
Now, there's was no chance, that, you know who, will go Tea-Total.
Or Miss Foxy will give up her superiority towards me.
Ouch, SHE wheelie wheeled me!
Judy here: He deserved it!
But we did all get together as a family, and follow the custom of a celebratory feast.

I collected the best eggs from Miss Henny Penny's cage, HE wanted to use the cheapo ones...In the end we used up both & all the milk in the house.
Opps! None was left for Mummys breakfast
I tackled the Lemons & Oranges...Bailey: And I did the serious work like beating the eggs...And heating up the brand new, non-stick pan...Mistress, then insisted, heavens knows why, on taking over from me.
Shucks, I was having such fun!
And, as she, seemed sadly, unable to do two tasks @ once; ie cook & take photo's; I can't show you the finished pancakes.
We, however, enjoyed them with freshly squeezed Lemon & Orange juice & sprinkles of sugar.
Judy :They were great; till, Mummy reminisced about a fancy variation, she'd tried once.
She made wholewheat [brown] pancakes & filled them with lemon curd & creme fraiche, before pouring Limoncello, an Italian liqueur, she'd brought back from Rome over them!
That Sis of mine always has to have the last word!
Till next time, keep paw happy!

love & wheelie wishes,

Postscript from Bailey!
I did indeed find a Valentine!
Sweet little wheelie miss Sally May, she maybe small but if she likes me...
