A duett, two new collars and three awards

Hi every doggie,

Well, it did stop raining eventually and today Finni and I were playing in the garden when we heard some tantalizing sounds, which got us in the mood for a little singsong. Finni is a very experienced singer. He gets into the proper pose ...

and then he sings in his two-tone voice.

That was fun!

Can you see that we are both wearing new collars? Mine is orange with multi-coloured dots and Finni's is black with neon paws and bones. Mummy ordered them of ebay and they came today. She got the orange one for me because it reminded her of my Kennel name ..... Shadlian Hot and Spicy. Finni says I'm a spice girl, hehe.

What do you think Bro'? ... Erm ... Is that my chewie you're chewing?

A little while back Maggie and Mitch gave Finni and me this beautiful award ...

Thank you so much Maggie and Mitch

and Inky and Molly gave it to us too!

It translates to, "Your blog is like a pearl - rare, delicate and charming!"

Thank you so much Inky and Molly!

The rules are to post the link of who sent the award to you.
Award 6 blogs with pearl and emotion.

This is really hard because we love everybody's blog - they are all special.

We choose:
  1. Ludo and Otto
  2. Ruby
  3. Lucia
  4. Poppy, Penny and Patches
  5. Alanis and Miro
  6. Baby Rocket dog and Hootie
and Inky and Molly also gave us this award

"When accepting this award, you must blog about the food you have stolen when your humans were not watching. If you have never stolen any food, you must have been a really good pup! You can accept this yummy tray of cookies as your reward! Next add the logo of this award to your blog (optional), then nominate at least 5 other furry blogs and let them know by leaving a message on their blogs."

In our house ... blush ... I'm the counter surfer, especially after my dinner - I'm only checking that Mummy hasn't left anything lying about! It might go off!!! And then I check Finni's bowl to make sure it's nice and clean ...
I used to steal food from the counter regularly but Mummy got wise to it now ... Oh yeah, I also pinch things of baking trays ... before they're cooked ...


Enjoy our singsong.

Nelly, your new collar is very pretty, and Finni's collar sounds very handsome.

With such beautiful singing and totally glam collars, you should be on "Britain's Got Talent." Of course, you'd have to be able to sing whether or not you're in the mood.
Thanks so much for the award! We're honored.
Alanis & Miro

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

You both have such dulcet tones, so much so we just had to join in when we watched your video.

Congratulations on your awards.

Molly, Taffy and Monty

Congratulations on your awards!

Tolle Halsbänder habt ihr um! Und singen könnte ihr super gut. Wann gibt es den erste Airedale Song auf CD ?

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Congrats on your awards and thanks for passing one along to us! We will blog about it as soon as our personal secretary finishes an emergency project she has to do. Our ice maker flooded part of our kitchen and buckled the hardwood under it. Mom is replacing the wood with tile so it never happens again!

Lucia said...

Ciao, miei amici!

Awwwww, Nelly, thank you so much for the 'wardie!!! I will write about it as soon as la mia ragazza gets herself organized enough to help me with my next postie. (Although lately, this has been essentially a lost cause... pllbbbbbbb!!!)

Finni, you are a fantastico singer! Perhaps you, your sissie and Lucia Pawvarotti can become the 'three tenors' of the canine world .....!! (Note to Finni's mama: la mia ragazza could not stop laughing at Finni's magnificent aaahroooo-ing -- she played the viddie about eleventy-billion times in a row ...!!)

Tanti baci!

PeeEss: I, Lucia, LOVE your new collars!!!!

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Oh Nelly, Our mommy was watching your video inside the Visitor's Center here and everyone stopped talking to listen to the howling!! Sooooo funny. Love your new collars. Very Congrats on your awards!! Thank you so much for the award. Our mom is the worst award poster in all of blogdom. Maybe she will get all our awards posted in a heap someday (SOON we hope).
Have a great weekend!!
Smooches from pooches,
