The judging panel



(took their task very seriously)

Gathering for the costume contest



(and the excitement is intense - who will win?)

(personally, I can't decide between the crocodile-kitten and the Indiana-cat)

"Aroo, aroo, aroo, aroo, aroo..."



This roughly translates to: "Happy Birthday to You! Happy Birthday to You! Happy Birthday deeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrr Gis----e-----lllllllllle - Happy Birthday to You!

Mine! MY frisbee!

She just couldn't say her lines without laughing



(and she tried so hard, too. Mind you - he wasn't helping - and why couldn't he ever put the Big Teeth in properly?)

A paw up in the game



(Of course, they still don't stand an earthly in this particular game (despite the co-operation) - what with having no head for heights. Squirrel gives top marks for trying, though.

I am a Good Dog



- have you taken note, Santa?

(dogs are getting anxious now - will they be considered Good Enough for Santa to fill their stockings? Have they been Good Dogs this year, or not?)

Whose idea was THIS??? (a Corgi in rabbit's clothing)



(when he finds out, he's going to nibble them til they're very, very sorry)

(It's almost as bad as dressing a Border Collie up in a sheep costume. But not quite...)

(a quiet Corgi snigger can be heard in the background)

Cards I don't have myself, but that are still available...


...through the magic that is the print-on-demand site...

Any image of mine which I don't have published as greeting cards I can upload to a print-on-demand site. Just let me know.

For example, I've just uploaded this design - 'Surprise visit' - to the print-on-demand site at Zazzle where you can customise the card any way you like and put in your own verse etc etc

Click here to see it

He knew his help was invaluable



- it was puzzling, though, how he didn't always get the appreciation he expected

Whose idea was THIS???



(when she finds out, she's going to baaaa-rk at them til they're very, very sorry)

The laws of aerodynamics prove that the Bumble-Corgi-Bee should be incapable of flight.............



.......................................Ha!

(But then, we know, as a matter of scientific fact, that Corgis are magic. They must fly to get to some of the places they get to.)

(In this pic they're playing in the leaves falling from the trees; falling-leaf season is a short one; much must be made of it while it's here.)

SURPRISE!!!



(also known as: just dropping in to see you)

She wished Gran's knitting pattern included earholes



(she loved this outfit but her ears got too hot in it)
