ACEO - Stargazer

Rosie: Stargazer? Means daydreamer? I thought it was a fish.
Monty: No, It’s a lily. See the lilies? Geddit, geddit? Lilies.
Rosie: No, it’s a fish, I tell you, with its eyes on top of its head. And it’s a bottom-dweller.
Monty: A bottom-dweller? Eeeuwwwww……..
Rosie: No, not that sort of……… Yelp. Leave it at daydreaming lily.

ACEO - "The answer lies in the soil, lad."

Rosie: He means, lass, not lad.
Monty: He said, lad, not lass.
Rosie, biting Monty's nose: He meant Lassie, lunkhead.
Monty: Aroooooo.
Monty - under breath: By the Great Dog Ty...
Rosie, biting Monty's nose: Stop that!
Monty: Aroooooo. Just you wait until the Great Dog Tyrex turns up. You'll be sorry then.
Rosie: I'm waiting. In the meantime it should be Lassie.
Monty - trying it out: "The answer lies in the soil, Lassie." Ooh, do you mean he's buried some bones for us?
Rosie, biting Monty's nose: Lunkhead. He's a rose grower. Honestly, what I have to put up with.
Monty - under breath: Just you wait...

ACEO - "Hello puppies!!!"

Monty - panicked: Yelp! It's Aunt Dogna! Run for the hills!

Rosie - automatic argue feature on: No, wait. We haven't answered yesterday's comments yet. Wait. Wait.

Monty - he's gone: Nooooooooooooooo....... she's coming, she's coming...... By the Great Dog Tyrex I'm outta here.

Rosie - fur standing on end: Right. Well. We'll do the comments later. I just need to go for a bit of a walk now. Need the exercise.

Rosie - halfway up a hill: Yelp!

ACEO - This is where I belong

Monty - misty: Aaahhhhhhhhh. Isn't he just too cute?
Rosie: Just wait until he's a four stone adult and then see if he still belongs on his human's shoulder...

Monty - sighing mightily: By the Great Dog Tyrex of Legend, Rosie, you're just too, too, COLLIEISH sometimes.
Rosie: The Great Dog Tyrex of Legend? What are you on, Monty?
Monty - huffy: Well, if you don't know, I ain't telling.
Rosie - into her paw: Tyrex? Tyrex? hehehe

ACEO - Forget me not

Monty: Do you think Susan's getting soppy?
Rosie: Soppy? It's just a name. Forget me not. Like the flower.
Monty: No, I mean, I thought Susan was saying: Forget me not.
Rosie: She is. It's a name. Like, Monty.
Monty: No, I mean, like: Forget. Me. Not.

ACEO - Well... um... Because it's bedtime???

Monty wanted Susan to do the slipper challenge thing - Rosie didn't want her to do it.

This is the little logo for it: hahaha - poxie thing - just when Rosie thinks she's got the hang of the technology it spits in her eye again. We're going to simply ignore it. With dignity.

Anyway - Susan did the slipper challenge anyway being a bit of a rebel, and trying to show she's not completely under the paw.

Monty thinks it's hilarious. Rosie is most disapproving - muttering under her dogsbreath something about showing Border collies up as being dozy. Monty said some dogs just were dozy anyway - even (and he lowered his bark) some Border collies.

He liked the picture - laughed so much he fell off the shelf he'd squashed himself onto. Of course, THAT did make Rosie laugh.

ACEO - Can I have my ball back, please mister...

Cripes - he's gone and chased it in next door again. Here he is, cap in hand, as it were, asking for it back. Grumpy old sod that chap next door, so Dog has to be very polite about it and promise not to bark for a week.

Monty says - well done, Dog. That's the spirit - promoting peace and harmony.
Rosie says - oh, just bite the grumpy old sod and grab your ball back!

mousewords - see link to the left - ref mountain gorillas

Monty and Rosie would like to draw your attention to the website of their friend, mousewords - the link is just to your left, there. We feel a certain kinship with these mountain gorillas - they're black and hairy. We're black and hairy (with a touch of white).

They're suffering. We're suffering... uh, well, nah, we're not really - not any more. But we did. We were rescue dogs. But that stuff is in our past. It would be nice to think the mountain gorillas could have a happy future too.

Is it too much to ask?

ACEO - There's always one...

Yep - there's always one in a bunch who's there simply to let the side down, to impair the dignity of the rest of us.

Monty reckons that was Rosie. Predictably, Rosie reckons it was Monty...

This is going to be amazing if it works - my first attempt at creating a link that comes out as words...

ACEO - Just another flower in the garden of life...

............although maybe I don't smell quite so sweet. Just thought I'd hang out in the shade here until someone wants me for essential things like dog-hugs, eating things merely to please people, or maybe even I'll have to make myself play ball with a human or accompany one on a walk. Yeah, just hanging out until needed...

This is an original, collectible ACEO painting by UK professional artist, S Alison (on behalf of MontyandRosie), whose paintings hang about in collections worldwide.

ACEO - I'm just thinking things through...

You know how it is when you need somewhere to go to think things through. Sometimes, crawling into someone's bed really helps. Especially if they're out and they can't shout at you for being on their bed. Especially if they happen to have put their special, 100% wool, woven-in-the-north-of-England from hand-spun wool on there.
