a beige thursday

a beige alert sense poem

beige looks like my stuff

beige sounds like teeth on cardboard

beige feels scratchy

beige smells like rovers ear

beige tastes like toys

beige makes me bored and sleepy

beige is utterly blah 

unlike all my beige airedale mates... you know who you are!

blue's next challenge is a red alert

a green thursday

ok b, i know you're really busy and that c has the flu, i know, i know but i would be so green with envy when blue, mitch and maggie, suzuki, madison and asta who's so artful, the 4 b's, mango tibby and all my other 'true colours' friends post all their green goodies, i've worked so hard, i've done the miles and i even did a great green stain that joey would have been so proud of today, just for you, so can we please, please post a few of my green finds... just a few...

He said, 'Lady, three hours ago it was grass.'
Phyllis Diller.

"huh... that's about as confusing to me as 'Three gray geese in the green grass grazing. Gray were the geese and green was the grass' plus b, i want to point out in the nicest possible way - that quote has absolutely nothing to do with my dog park and its lush green grass!' 

'Grass is greener in other pastures.'


'To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug".

"that is so tue, so what's this green artificial crap all about guys?"

'Being pretty on the inside means you don't hit your brother and you eat all your peas - that's what my grandma taught me'.
Lord Chesterfield.

"green peas, now we're talking... pease pass the green peas in my green bowl pease!..."

"is that it? you have to be kidding me right?

what about my big green stain?

you have to show my big green stain, you have to show joey my big green stain, i was trying so hard to make you some milk..."

blue's next 'true colours thursday' is going to be beige...

"hey b… my stain had beige in it too!"

a violet thursday

roses are red
violets are blue
i love my wubba

and my cabbage too!

roses are red
violets are blue
I'm gonna lick b's shoe
perhaps even two!

roses are red
violets are blue
i can't see more violet
i just haven't a clue 

violets are violet
roses are cream
blue's next true colour
is gonna be green

a mellow, yellow thursday

so it seems this week the mission is to hunt yellow... i told b & c i'm a bit short on yellow toys and they said that someone in our family has yellow eyes and that would be a purrrfect yellow... my tummy twitched, my head lowered and i said "um, b... my eyes are yellow..."

but b said "no", that i was just tricking and the light was just playing and i was just trying to get out of the mission at paw... so i took a long sulky walk at the dog park where there were yellow sunflowers as big as my dinner plate but i wasn't concentrating on them all i was thinking about was long sharp claws...

i hunkered down with my yellow snake and my yellow duck taffy for inspiration all the time thinking of a plan of attack, i have to watch my butt as i'm thinking of claws...

i devised a plan to hunt the fierce thing with those scary yellow eyes and sharp, sharp claws... i will admit, it made me yellow (that's slang for scaredy cat by the way) just thinking about it, so i told b i needed strength, i needed sustenance, i had to have some yellow cheese...

and some vegemite

which she gave me on my yellow treat spoon... lick-a-liscious...

now i felt almost tough enough to get close to the fiercest member of our family that has the most wonderful yellow eyes... all i needed was a quick self defense lesson with mr snake to sharpen my game...

and my mission was done...without a scratch i shot of my prey...

bodie cat!!! and then b did something special to celebrate my bravery she cooked cheese scones from the book her mum and dad gave her cos she said they are the best cheese scones she's ever tasted

and i have to say they are most tasty with lashings of yellow butter and a light smear of vegemite... i also have to say b serving it to me on a yellow plate was a nice touch...

in memory of klaus, bogart and lulu's soulmate, we are posting a picture of early yellow crocus peeping through the snow... when we saw the pic scruffy, stanley and lacie placed on their post honouring klaus, they just seemed so right!

blue's next 'true colours thursday' is going to be violet... 'till next week, doyle ;D
