a pale pink thursday

with pale pink as our mission there can only be one thing to post about this week... the cottage we went to for my 'test' holiday to see if i am a good traveller... we think the acorn cottage is the best place on the whole planet... arf!


and it's got loads of pink...


hey b & c, i am looking for more pink...


woah i've found a stash of it... here's my dogs eye view...


laura and lloyd are the proud owners of this stunning hideaway... we are jealous... furry jealous, here i am with laura and her kids, bob, brodie and tallulah... that is brodie whispering secrets in my ear...


look at all their space... and thats only a teeny bit of it...


oh how i loved running through all that luscious grass... every morning i would run out to see my new found friends...


and the fantails would tease me... they kept wanting to land on my tail...


we did lots of sightseeing... a pink car...


and b laughed cos she noticed when i get excited in the car i poke out my pink tongue...



we even did one of my favourite things... fish & chips at the beach...


woah check out that pinkdinghy... it's a barbie boat...


back at the cottage while b & c sampled their locally sourced yummies... i had a serious session with a pink bone cut especially for me by the butcher in kerikeri - note the pink planter pot, oh so furry perfect for bone stashing...


we even had pink sunsets...


what better way to end the day...


no wait! indeed it does get better... we had a pink bed!


and on the way home after 3 days of bliss... that's me hanging out the back window doggle free...


we drove by some pink sheep... i kid you not!!


i am also furry tickled pink to announce that we are one of the first recpients of the smiling greyhound award woof hoo to us!! so remember to go visit renner and scooter at spacial peepol cos we think they have a whole lot of taste... arf arf...


a message from b:

doyle was such a great traveller he's off to the acorn cottage for 5 days over the new year... he will be stoked! i couldn't really let doyle do a pink post without the addition of the famous cadburys pinky bar, first launched to the nz market in 1961 and trust me readers, while it might have 50% less fat, this is one seriously pink sweet hit... pink marshmallow and runny caramel sauce coated in milk chocolate eek! also an update from last thursday chocolate post - yippee the power of the consumer wins with cadburys announcing they are changing their formulation back to being palm oil free! great stuff!


and last but certainly not least - thanks to all for the pawsitive powers being sent our way for poor old bodie, it saddens me to say that we are pretty certain it is a case of 'when' not 'if', she's not in any pain thanks to all the meds but she has virtually stopped eating, all we can really do is smoother her in loves, keep her comfortable and wait... it's fustrating as all her tests came back fine so we have no real idea why she has declined so quickly... we are also really worried how doyle will be without her! below is a pic of bodie last night... sadly her eyes say it all...


next week blue's challenge is gonna be sky blue...

Oh no, so very sorry to hear Brodie is feeling so poorly. We went through this recently with both of our 20 year old kitties and one of our greyhounds. We lost them all three in the course of 6 weeks. We were having a lot of trouble trying to figure out what was wrong with Vinni (one of our cats), and it was finally discovered that waaayyyy back under his tongue there was some sort of cancer making it very hard for him to use his tongue to eat. Nothing could be done. I am hoping that Brodie turns around, I know Doyle will miss him terribly if he does not.

Lots of hugs and scritches to Bodie. Scritches and more scritches to Doyle too.

Sounds like Doyle had a pretty nice time at the Acorn. You are swell at making me smile when ever I read your blog. Thanks!

Good job finding all that pink on your vacation!

Bodie is sure a handsome fellow. I hope he will tell you how he's doing and what he needs.

Aw Bella, I'm so sorry about Bodie :( I didn't realise she was so ill. Have you tried warming her food? I have to do this with old Pixie now, something to do with making the flavour stronger or something, it does work.
She'll tell you when, our animal families are good at that.

On a pink note, I was down at my friends at the beach yesterday - they have a lovely tiny 'cottage' there and I was armed with the left over pink paint from The Acorn, so it gets around a bit!

Give Bodie a wee cuddle from us all xx

(weirdly my word verification was ficuddle!)

Acorn Cottage certainly is a gem of a place.
And what luck to see pink sheep!

Thanks for making such a fine & fun post when you must be so concerned about poor Bodie. Hope she tries to eat a little - gentle strokes again to her.

Love, and pats & pets
Blue

the professionals said...

thank you all for the kind heart felt wishes we are (maybe falsely optimistic) rapt to see her eat some fresh monkfish tonite and have propped her up on an old fav... the dr seuss duvet... way to go...

Maggie and Mitch said...

Oh poor Puss... I went through something like this with Max earlier this year, he was in hospital for a whole week in the end and I thought I had lost him. But he decided differently and has been fine since.. I do hope all is well!
