We are just so very thankful.

We definitely have the BEST friends in all of blogdom. For that matter, the Best Friends one can ever wish for.


We have been so, so behind in blog visits and commenting and stuff, of late.

But in spite of that, you have all been with us and have always taken the time to come visit us.

Not only do you visit us, you actually patiently trounce the all prevailing blogger owes and leave us the most wonderful, kindest and the most touching comments.


Thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts. We cherish all the friendships we have found here. Sometimes, we feel they are more real than the real ones, if you know what we mean.


We want so much to be able to go visit each and every one of you. But things have been pretty crazy around here, what with our shifting plans and Mummy’s work.

We tried hard to squeeze in our Valentine Day post- yes, a very special post too in honour of our little brother Shadow – and raced against time to make it on D-Day, but Time outraced us!

If you noticed it, our V-Day post was on the 15th of Feb!!

We were a little upset. But then we decided it was alright.

After all it is not the day that matters as much as the thought behind celebrating it.

V-Day is actually just a reminder for us to spread a little love, friendship and joy. So what if we do it a day later.


We hope you all had a fabulous day and hugged and kissed everypuppy you love in this world.

And in the process, also got some nice pressies and treats.


We had a quiet day at home with Daddy while Mummy worked the ENTIRE day!

(Daddy is done with his notice period and will soon be relieved from work and is, these days enjoying being a full time house-husband! We think Mummy is a tiny-winy bit jealous that he gets to stay home and do whatever he likes, while she has to go to work!)

It being a Monday did not help matters. Like Lola had mentioned, it is certainly not Mummy’s favourite day of the week since it is usually the busiest.


But she did fix us a special dinner – Mummy special tomato-chicken and loads of bones.

There wasn’t any cake though.


Now, ever since Booker’s Mama told our Mummy how to make a strawberry shortcake, we have been dying to have some.

Ah! For some nice, juicy cake!

Sadly, it is already too hot for fresh strawberries in this part of the world. Or for Blueberries or Raspberries or any other berry for that matter.


But berries or no berries, we think Mummy should at least bake us a plain old vanilla cake and top it with whipped cream. We are ready to settle for that.

We will definitely let you know if our luck turns!



(Thanks, Google, for this picture. Maybe Mummy will be inspired by it!)


And we hope Mummy will manage to help us visit everybody by the time this week ends. That is a good long rope, don’t you think?



Ginger, Buddy n shadow

Actually, it depends where you were in relation to the international date line at the time. Your V-Day post was on V-Day here. You know what? We have finally figured out that we will never again be able to comment on every single post our friends make, no matter how much we want to. We just have to do our best to get around when we can. That's much better than not being in touch at all, don't you think? We appreciate it when you visit and we certainly understand that you can't always do that. It's all good.

We know how it is! We love our blog, but Mama says sometimes it can be a huge timesucker, especially if she has school and other things and doesn't have time to read all of our friends' blogs to us all day long! LOL!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

We are fighting the same battle here - so we really really understand!



~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Strawberry shortcake is the best! You definitely have to get your mom to make it. You will be so glad that she did, your tails will wag nonstop!

All the best, and with the shifting too.

Priscilla said...

I love strawberry cake but I've never baked one in my life as I'm a clumsy person and I don't know how to do the cream thingy. I'm so afraid that I might mess up everything before I get the cake done : )
Glad that you mom has a good recipe, wish her all the best and you all get some good share too!

Mariodacat said...

ooo, that cake looks delicious. No problem with the visits, as M says, you oomans only have so many hours in a day, and those hours fill up pretty fast. Just come when you can.

Anonymous said...! That cake looks super duper SCRUMPTIOUS! YUM! But a plain vanilla cake with whipped icing sounds just as good!

And don't you worry a bit about visiting and stuff right now. You got a lot going on and we all totally understand. You just do what you can, when you can, okay?

Wiggles & Wags,

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

What everybody else said! We all do the best we can and get around to as many blogs as we can. And at least your mom started a blog for you; we don't have one and there are no signs we're getting one. Just love your mom & dad and don't let them work themselves into a frazzle. Time with you and each other is the most important thing. The rest of us will always be here. Loved the Valentine's photos of Shadow! What a baby doll.
