Black & White Sunday: Happy Mother’s Day

It was Mother’s Day here in the UK, today. For those of you who also celebrated, we would like to send you lots of love and schlurps… well, and to those across the pond who celebrate later, too, for that matter! We love you all!

I spoiled my very own Mummy today, of course, but I was surprised by my very own furry children too.

three mother's day

Firstly, they got me a lovely card and cleverly signed it themselves. But, better than that, they sat together and let me take a lovely picture! Trust me when I say, that’s rare.

They also got me this plaque with a warning lovely heart-felt message. You can tell by Millie’s face just how much the sentiment is felt here.

Flower sniffers

Lastly, the thoughtful bunch presented me with some flowers. Aren’t they gorgeous, I do LOVE tulips, such a happy flower.

And apparently they smell quite nice…

I actually think the pups mistook them for food, since I distinctly heard a little crunch before I managed to rescue them. Who were these for did you say, guys?
It doesn’t matter anyway, presents you can share are always the best kind and I would have been more than happy with the love and attention I get every day of the year.

Do you treat your mum on Mother’s Day?

Black & White Sunday: Weim-Wife for Easy

HEY! Easy? After the plea you sent on my blog post just before Crufts, I decided to make it my personal mission to find you a girlfriend! You’re one smart puppy, I mean, if Crufts isn’t the place to do it, then what is? right?

So… *drum-roll please*… look who we found… are you ready? You should probably sit down, she’s a bit of a stunner…

weim wife spot

Meet Molly! Isn’t she beautiful? She’s three years old and single. Her mum was telling me she’s a bit of a tart, but don’t worry what she really meant was that she’s an exhibitionist and she showed me some photos of her with her, erm, ‘bits and pieces’ clearly on display. I think that just means she’s comfortable with her body! I mean, ‘if you’ve got it, flaunt it’ and all that. And she definitely has it!

Molly says not to worry about this dude with her..

weim boy

That’s her brother and she reckons he would sell her for a bone anyway. He seemed nice, Easy. I think you would get on. He didn’t have a great deal to say for himself but that’s probably because he was being fed treats at the time and y’know, priorities!

dreaming of easy

I  told Molly all about you, showed her your photo (I hope Mum doesn’t mind?) and erm… she seemed keen! So what do ya reckon, have we got ourselves a wedding on the cards?

P.S. I’m still trying to get all of my photos from Crufts loaded and edited. There are hundreds and I have LOTS to tell you, so please do watch this space. I’m sure you all understand though, love has to come first <3.

Word-full Wednesday: Crufts Eve Links and Leads

ellie dreams of Crufts

It’s seems like ages since we started the competition to win some of Ellie’s tickets on Facebook and gave them away. But now Crufts is upon us! Tomorrow marks the start of the four-day spectacular and we cannot wait. Although Ellie won’t be joining us of course, she still has dreams of what it would be like to win something at this giant celebration of dogs. We both agree she would easily walk away with the doggy dancing crown. Ellie does the best pirouette you ever did see, and we WILL show you one day (furry promise). Myfie wonders if there’s an eating competition, and naturally Millie thinks she’d take Best in Show! What about you? Which prize would be yours for the taking, do let us know!

Anyway, since the pups do miss out on the actual event, like many of you who are from overseas, I thought it might be handy to give you some links. Of course, I will be going, but only for one day so I too will want to know what’s going on for the rest of the time.

My freind and I (this is an actual human! I do know some, honest) have chosen to attend on Friday… for, well, no particular reason. Crufts is a great days entertainment whenever you can make it. If there is anything you would like to know about more specifically, or anything you want us to check out please do let me know in the comments. I will be most happy to. For example, Myfie has asked me to take some pictures of some cute looking girls. Well, he actually wants me to find him a wife, because apparently these posh pups like a bit of ruff! But yeah, whatever Myfie, I can’t do magic.

cruftsyoutube

The action from the arena will be live streamed every day on YouTube, Huzzah! The arena is where all the ‘activities’ take place, the doggy dancing, the flyball and agility, demonstrations, breed judging… everything! Click on that there cute little picture link above, and be taken straight to the Crufts channel, subscribe and you will be able to see more than those of us who are attending will. Oh there’s such a sweet video right there on the home page, it gave me goosebumps!


For those of us in the UK, More 4 will be covering the event LIVE as usual with the lovely, Claire Balding hosting. You can also watch OnDemand and More4+1 should you miss it first time around.
I’m not sure if those outside of the UK can access this content, but what I think you WILL be able to do is vote in the ‘Friends for Life’ comp. You can view the entrants stories on the Crufts YouTube channel if you have difficulty doing so via the More 4 website, but cast your vote from here: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/crufts#vote – please have tissues at the ready for these beautiful stories.

Information as it happens will also be rolled out on the Crufts website: http://www.crufts.org.uk/
And if you can stand to listen to me bleating on about it, I will also be sharing information and fun bits and pieces via our social media channels 🙂

Lastly, I would love you to check out this very informative, and very serious press conference…

… My money’s on Fritz, what about yours?
Thanks for battling through this post, if we’ve missed anything please let us know!

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!

millie zoom

Sparkles are so much fun!

dark street

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?

Crufts 2015: Win Some Tickets, Yay!

Crufts tickets graphics

It’s that time of the year again! The time of year where I start getting ridiculously excited and practically foam at the mouth. No, it’s not Christmas, but it does begin with the letter ‘C’… and it’s all about dogs so thinking about it, it might actually be my favourite time of the year! Yep, it’s CRUFTS! Ta Dah!

Well, it’s the run up to it at least, because the actual dates are Thursday 5, March – Sunday 8, March.

Crufts, as always is held at the Birmingham N.E.C. We’re lucky enough to be able to pop along ourselves again this year and even better than that… we get to invite you too! Some of you, at least, four to be exact.
Ellie is kindly offering to share a pair of her tickets with two lucky winners.

HERE ARE THE DETAILS OF THE COMPETITION:

✭ Competition entry is over on our Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/PawedCouture and the post is pinned to the top!
✭ Winners will be drawn on Sunday 22, February
✭ I will notify winners via Facebook and will need to obtain a postal address
✭ Tickets will be posted by Ellie the next day
✭ Due to timescale, I’m afraid this draw is for UK residents only (unless you happen to know you will be in the UK and able to attend on the dates AND you have a UK address for us to send tickets to).

HERE ARE SOME DETAILS ABOUT THE ACTUAL TICKETS:

✭ The competition is for a PAIR of tickets
✭ The tickets cannot be re-sold
✭ The tickets are valid for one day of your choosing from the four.
✭ If you choose to go on the Sunday, you cannot use this ticket to view ‘Best in Show’ in the arena, further costs will apply should you wish to see this. The ticket IS valid for the rest of the spectacular that is Crufts, though.
✭ You can’t take your own pooch I’m afraid 😦

Crufts2014_PL_Sun-K047a
HERE ARE SOME DETAILS ABOUT THE SHOW:

Crufts takes place from 5 – 8 March 2015 at The NEC, Birmingham
Show opening times each day: 8:15 – 19:30

2015 Group Schedule (who’s being judged on that day):
✭ Thursday 5, March – Gundog
✭ Friday 6, March – Working and Pastoral
✭ Saturday 7, March – Terrier and Hound
✭ Sunday 8, March – Toy and Utility

But, of course, Crufts is about way more than judging breed standards these days. It’s a PACKED day and you need a little bit of planing beforehand to see everything you want to. Here’s just a little bit of info about what you can expect:

✭ 22,000 dogs competing for the world-class title of Crufts Best In Show
✭ The Arena showcasing fantastic displays and competitions
✭ Good Citizen Dog Scheme training ring, the UK’s largest dog training programme
✭ Dog Activities Ring, where you can learn how to unleash your dog’s potential
✭ Over 400 trade stands with special show offers and exciting new products for you and your best friend!

Black & White Sunday: Pup Takeover

Myfie: Hey guys 😀 It’s Myfie here
Ellie: And Me!
Millie: And most impawtantly, me!… do you see what I did there?

Myfie: Yeah hilarious, but I am in charge today! My idea and I’m the boss. So there, shush! Where was I?
Ellie: You were trying to sound clever.
Millie: He IS clever, Ellie. The cleverest… I ❤ you, Myfie.
Ellie: *Yawn* Can you just get on with it if you’re gonna do this please?

Myfie: Yeah so… Hi! Mum hasn’t posted for a long time
Millie: And we were worried our fans missed us!
Myfie: Ahem… No, we missed YOU guys in blogville and we wondered what you were all up to? Mum is being reeaaallly lazy just lately, and sulking loads
Ellie: MYFIE!! That’s so mean, you can’t say that!
Myfie: Well that’s what it’s looked like to me!

Ellie: Mum has been poorly, and she’s worried she’s let everybody down and she’s been a bit sad recently.
Millie: Tell them how ace we are though. We’ve been looking after her and everything for ZERO PUBLICITY.
Ellie: That’s our job, Millie! Our job is to love, that’s all.
Myfie: So what about the work in the Shed!?
Ellie: That’s… we do that because it’s fun! And if mum sells loads of collars, she’ll buy us many Dentastix (other brands are available 😉 )
Millie: I need to speak to my agent!

Myfie: Right so anyway, since mum has been ‘poorly’ and what not, we thought we’d just take to our paws and do this thing ourselves. And to be perfectly honest, we’ll do a much better job. We know how this thing works by now!
Millie: You’re so right, I ❤ you, Myfie. You’re the only thing I love more than myself.

Millie: Here’s my selfie…
Myfie & Ellie: NOT YET!!!

millie blogger

Millie: Why not?? Too many words without a picture of me! mum wouldn’t do it like this!
Myfie: Well it should have been ME first, I’m the writer!!
Ellie: Don’t mean to sound like a know-it-all but you should have put it at the top. I thought you said this was easy and you could do better?
Myfie: Know-it-all!

Myfie: Here I am, some sort of annoying stain next to me though. :p

Myfie Ellie Bloggers

Ellie: HEY! I wasn’t ready.
Myfie: Hehehehe. Can we have a treat now? This is done, right?
Ellie: Who’s gonna do THAT? Mum doesn’t even know we are doing this!
Myfie: I didn’t think of that 😦 … what was the POINT!? I’m outta here!
Millie: At least people got to see my our pretty face faces!

Myfie: Come on! Let’s go make big eyes at mum so we get treats anyway!
Millie: You’re a genius, Myfie. I ❤ you!

*Myfie and Millie, gone like a herd of elephants*

Ellie: OI! WE AREN’T DONE!! What about the editing and the posting and stuff??

Myfie: *from afar* Pah ha! You snooze, you lose!! Make sure my name is BIG!!

Ellie: *grumble, grumble*
