Black & White Sunday: Winter Walkies

We love it here at Pawed Towers when true winter hits. We love walking in the darkness when the less braver souls come out to play. That’s just as well considering it gets dark so early this time of year. The pups seem, to me at least, to be more focused on what they are doing in the dark. It’s especially good for Ellie, she appears far less distracted and ready to bark at the littlest thing… of course, there is actually less out there to bark AT but that’s beside the point.

The bad thing is that photos are much harder to get, not only because of the light situation but because the pups seem far less inclined to stop what they’re doing and give me a little pose. Rude of them, I know!

Anyway, since this is what we have been doing a lot of lately we thought we’d share some of the photos with you… warts and all!

Ice Ice Myfie

Myfie seems to love the way that the ice crunches under his paws… I worry about his little pads, but apparently it’s fine for them to walk on!

Myfie Pee Mail

…and it doesn’t matter how cold it is there is always time to send and receive a but of pee-mail, right?

mucky myf bw

Myfie views the dirt he comes home with as a badge of honour!

Millie side ice

Millie is a proper little girlie, she likes to go out dressed to match the weather; sparkly top to match the sparkly ground!

millie sit ice

…and who cares if it’s cold? It makes the prettiest seat ever!

Sparkles are so much fun!

Do you ever wonder how much more than us pups can see?

ellie looks

Ellie loves to have a good look around on her evening walks!

elli look out

I sometimes wonder if she thinks she’s looking into the future!

ellie tongue!

Well, whatever she sees she looks happy about it, and you can’t ask for more than that!

Can anybody solve the riddle for us? Do you prefer a daytime or an evening stroll… and why?

Halloween Spooktacular: This is HOWLoween

We are delighted to join in with the Halloween Spooktacular blog hop! We’ve been having lots of fun and Mum has been taking lots of pictures (as per usual)… here are the spoils.

pimpkin newsprint

That giant orange friend we were introduced to met his demise yesterday. Mum stuck knives and pins in him and said some words that turned the air blue. She said she has never carved a pumpkin before and this was her first attempt. We totally believe her because this is what it ended up looking like! We weren’t really sad about him meeting his end though, because he smelled soooo good!

Then we moved onto things that were much better looking…

All 3

That’s us! Mum muttered something about photo quality and light, because she is so unorganised it was nearly dark out by the time we posed for these. But anyway, we think it doesn’t really matter and you’ll get the message.

Ellie lay down

Ellie makes a great witch, she doesn’t really need a costume but mum put one on her anyway!

ellie sleep

The trouble is her hat always slips over her eyes, and when that happens it makes her sleepy. She wondered if this would be spooky enough in a Pirate-Witch kinda way. It didn’t really work but she wasn’t giving it up.

FrankrenMyf Sat

Next up is Myfie, we call him the Great FrankenMyf! Yeah his costume is a bit of a mish-mash so he ended up as a sort of Frankenstein-come-wizard type dude…

FrankenMyf laid down

He’s pretty happy with himself still, he says the spookiest thing about the whole event is how devilishly handsome he is anyway! (…yeah whatever dude)

Millie lay down

Millie is the cheeky little witch she always is, just with more colour! She didn’t really want to have her photographs taken, she was too busy sashaying around in her costume… until she saw us having ours taken and thought there might be some treats involved.

Millie sat look

She was all smiles then… Kinda!

We hope you all had an ArrrWwwOooOohHhhHHhHhHHHHh-ing good Howloween! Special thank you for the hosting of this special bloghop too!!

Won’t ya join in?

Black & White Sunday: Turn Back Time

The clocks went back here today in the UK (I realise that they don’t for you US and Canada folks at least, until next weekend) and in honour of that, we decided to turn back time ourselves and look at the years gone by.

baby_mYF_FIRE

Here’s Myfie when he was just a wee puppy. He loved baths back then (I have no idea what happened) and he loved laying in the orange glow of the fire… some things don’t change at least.

When Ellie joined us, Myfie was still a puppy but he looked SO much bigger than her, it threw us a bit I think. In reality there is only six months between them.

myfie and baby ellie

baby ellie

Ellie has always looked the picture of innocence and she has always chosen the strangest of places to sleep…

ellie bagged

But underneath it all she’s a little tomboy that likes nothing better than being outside and getting dirty.

mucky face ellie

Both pups were adults by the time Millie arrived though, I can see now where she got her tips from.

Eek…and we’re off!

Firstly, I would like to apologise for not being around much this week. The truth is the last couple have been mega (does anybody say that word anymore?) busy and stressful. Some of you may know I have been working hard to get my little shop launched… and it’s been absolutely terrifying! HA.
I am nowhere near the excited and comfortable phase yet, but I hope that will come with confidence and time.

Earlier in the week I announced the winning name for the collar-naming competition I had. Here it is:

Hello my name is

Clever huh? Thanks so much to those of you who either added a name here or popped over to my Facebook page to enter. Every suggestion meant so much to me!

Then on Wednesday, October 1st I launched my actual shop over on Etsy!

Pawed_Now_Open_Etsy

I won’t spam you all here with the individual pics, but if you do want to come over and take a look… here is our little portion of that huge market place: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/PawedCouture

I was so lucky that within the first hour of announcing the shop open, I received my very first online order.

I do have plans already buzzing around my head for lots of new products and I won’t JUST be selling on Etsy, but… one step at a time, one paw in front of the other, right?

The pups have been an amazing comfort throughout this process, bless their furry little hearts and they make an appearance over there too, in their tester gear. It would be rude not to, wouldn’t it?

I just wanted to thank everybody here for their support and encouragement. I will try to keep you all updated, but the most important thing is… We’ll be back with more pup pics swifter than the wag of Millie’s tail! (which is really fast btw 😉 )

Hugs,
Carrie, Myfie, Ellie and Millie ❤

 

Name Our Collar

Pawed Collar Competition

We are getting dangerously close to launch day here at Pawed Towers!

This post is a little bit of shameless self-promotion (well I do feel a tad shameful, actually but..). How would you feel about having one of our collars, the one above, in fact, named after YOUR favourite furry friend? Or, maybe, you look at the pattern and a name just jumps out at you that you would like to share with us?

We are asking for submissions via Facebook up until Sunday at midnight (GMT) and would just love it if you popped on over to join us! You can’t miss the post, it’s pinned right to the top of the page!
We are still finding our feet over there so would ❤ to see some friendly faces https://www.facebook.com/PawedCouture

 

Of course if you would like to and you haven’t already you can also find us on Twitter, on Instagram and on Pinterest too. We’d love to see you!

Hugs and loves,

Carrie,
Myfie, Ellie and Millie ❤
