Cats gone fishing; the kitty kite; karate cat; fairy's mud pies and a corgi's vintage car

Gone fishing


















Learning to fly the kitty kite

(It was a bonding process.)


















Karate Cat

(he was ready for anything)


















Her mud pies were in a class of their own

















It was his pride and joy

(He spent more time lying on it than polishing it, though.)

Dance like no one is watching - Happy Birthday, Elaine!!!

Mermaid and seahorse chat; Corgis playing bingo; teddy bear mystery; cat steed; dog owns hoomun

Chat


















Eyes down

(I'm not going to make any jokes about 'Two Fat Corgis' or anything like that. Oh, no I'm not!)


















"For you, My Sweet," he said.

(She took it because she was a very polite bear - but she didn't really want it - she had a secret of her own. Little did she know that so did he...)

(further installments to the teddy bear saga will be coming soon...)


















He was her trusty steed

(for long journeys - she used her wings for short ones)


















Yep. This is MY hoomun.

(Dogs have a quiet air of ownership about them. Make no mistake - you don't own them. They own you.)

Corgi holding pattern; whippet looks for Spring; cat posers; Border Collie gymdogs; Swing, baby, swing Corgis

Swing, baby, swing

(Dance like no one is watching.)



















They were dedicated gymdogs


















The Posers

(although they were pretending to be on lookout duty)


















Is this Spring I see before me?

(And if it isn't, then where is it???)



















They'd been in a holding pattern for hours

(They didn't mind, though - they were in good company.)

Doggone sales calls - scottie; cat and girl conspiring; woman and whippet communing; corgi wishes to be heavier to get seesaw down; teddy bears.......

Doggone sales calls!!!


















Conspiring

(Heaven knows what they're planning now. That kittie is such a bad influence!!!)


















A quiet moment

(they understood each other perfectly)


















How he wished he was heavier


















They met by chance in the park

(and that was the start of something good)

Spring promise

Corgi wanted to play with big pups; dodgem cats; whippet fancied self as pointer

She so wanted to play with the big pups

(but was too shy to ask)


















Dodgem Cats

(Otherwise known as: 'Early lessons in competitiveness from your dad')


















He fancied himself as an English Pointer

(and often put on the pose)

Whippet's dreams-of-summer-hat; Cats maypole dancing practice; and Border Collie inventor

It was her 'dreams-of-summer' hat

(she only had to put it on, whatever the time of year, and she felt sunnier)



















By May, they'd be step-perfect

(and very fit)


















February 11th is National Inventors' Day

Corgi dog chess; a cat's quiet time; and a camera-shy Border Collie pup

Corgi chess

(It had seemed like a good idea at the time, but they couldn't agree on the rules...)




















Quiet time


















She was camera-shy

(but they weren't going to let her get away with it)
