let's be thankful it's an orange thursday

so blue at true colours, in honor of thanksgiving, has challenged us to orange this week. no problems i can show you my moves with my orange mr pumpkin head...

if mollie will ever let me have a go...

while i waited for the mollie monster to share some play, i got thinking about how thanksgiving is not really a new zealand tradition. it's a harvest festival right? so you are spose to give thanks for the harvest and express gratitude in general by scoffing lotsa food with friends and family? gobble and go kinda thing? mmmmmm that gave me an idea... today we will post a huge thanks to all our blogging friends and in keeping with the spirit of all things orange, all my bloggy friends have something orange in their photo... (pee ess, if we've missed you out we are furry furry sorry - maybe we don't know you visit us?? be sure to woof out so we know you are out there... licks and loves ;D)

first up we have the 4 b's, in a way its kinda appropriate they are the first pic cos they were the first blog we ever visited infact, it was these dudes who inspired us to start our blog

asta, she might be the queen of orange and style in manhatten, but she's also got the biggest heart of gold

barkalot boyz, jake and harry... always an adventure in florida

bogart, sadly bogie lost his h-dad earlier this year, he has since taken up the challenge of protector of his h-mom whilst serving as a very informative guide to the arty side of portland's sidewalks and forests

butchy, oh butchy we are furry sorry your sidekick and soulmate miss snickers didn't beat her strange illness, we can only hope you do not get too lonely

checkers, always the fashion statement you should see her knitted creations

deetz & sharkie, who found and rescued a stray kitten, jinx, all on their own

duffy, he might be new to all this bloggy stuff but being asta's bro we know he will excel

eduardo, the snuggle puggle... he might be small but man courage wise he's twice the size of most, keep fighting that horrid sickie eosinophilic myositi eduardo

fred, a poodle like no other

gooberstan and stella, to celebrate the notion of new friends, today we add these two characters who we know will provide us with much laughter

guiness and saige, who are so big they have to wear reflector vests so the hunters dont shoot them

ike, who's just relocated to barkingham... we kid you not

joey, who splits our sides... love your style

kyhra, generous beyond words, it was actually khyra who gave us this weeks orange idea, she offered the infamous orange rescue van her momma uses to help dogs who are less fortunate than ourselves, if you can help go visit the last resort rescue by clicking on this link or peemail khyra at KhyraSH at Gmail dot Com

lacie, spirited beyond belief how do stanley and scruffy hack the pace we wonder

laura, ok she may not be a dog and she's definitely not a bee but she's our first internet friend who lets us come up and rent their wee farm cottage the acorn, bliss

life with dogs, so clever and witty they always deliver a laugh

mack and sally ann, generous, loving and oh so great shoppers

madison, who gave us our first vote of confidence in mango's mango minster, for that we stay loyal

mango, big guy, huge heart and master of the slobber

mitch and maggie, true friends... without these two we would have most likely missed the odd true colours, they rally us on and as far as we know they have never missed a post, a tough act to follow

peewee, agile and wise mind you he would have to be since he lives with the one that goes by the name 'relentlessly huge'

petey, ok he may have a small tail (actually it looks pretty long in this pic) but he always has a huge tale to tell

sasha, such sassy sweetness

sasha the dane, the biggest kid on the block

snickers, aw snickers, she shared so many of her adventures with us, she may be gone in body but her spirit will always be with us

spatial peepol, ruby and scooter standing with renner in front. always sharing such lovely photos and words... before you ask... yes we think ruby's spots are a kind of orange

sparky, a cavapapipoo... he's got the smarts (and naughtiness) from the poodle, the agility from the papillon, and the willingness to please from the cavalier one very smart 'designer dog'

suzuki, have you seen any of the above? we fear they are missing in action and feel we should put out a missing persons alert...

tank, a wee joker with a lot of panache and attitude

tanner, if we didn't have tanner we wouldn't have doofus, right?

teddy, always up to something and most definitly a strong willed player

tibby, always showing so much style, another true designer dog

twinkle, living the high life with a smile

vodka, cute as a button

walter, a mighty courageous pug who is beating all the odds, a true superdog

and finally a furry special thanks to blue seen here with her friend jackson. it is blue's meme 'true colours' that keeps us on track with our weekly posts. blue never fails to surprise us with her own last post to every colour challenge... cake - no matter how weird the colour, blue always manages to find a cake. this next pic is especially for blue... blue you take the cake!

next week apparently things are going to get creamy...


Mango said...

That was a most awesome post for sure. I was honored to be included. I am going to visit some of those doggies that I have not met yet.

Hope that little orange Mollie dog is behaving herself.

Darroch Cottage said...

that was an absolutely brilliant post and must have taken ages!
oh Joey! I'm still giggling at his pic! It's a beaut!
cant wait to see you all and Mollie!

Jake of Florida said...

What a special special post -- especially when we are all feeling so sad about our sweet Snickers and others who are fighting some uglies.

Like Mango, we are honored to be included and hope we can get to know each other better in the days to come.

Orange is very much a Florida thing (even if some of our juice is now imported from Brazil --shhhhh!!)so that was a very fitting symbol for us -- and it's an inviting color for everyone.

Wirey woofs!!!

Jake and Just Harry

Mack and Sally Ann said...
