Haute Couture Fantastic Fashion Friday !

Now that our vacation is over, it's back to work for us, we are resuming our Fantastic Fashion Fridays by modelling some great outfits that Mum has found. The Paris Spring 2011 Haute Couture shows are on this week and we think it's time doggies had their own haute couture !
Have a look and tell us your favourite outfit(s)

This is great for a night out on the town

I'm a black and white dog, but I love colours !

A bow for a touch of class

How's this for a "bad boy" look ?

Do you know the famous French couturier Jean-Paul Gaultier  ?
He loves to mix different styles, patterns and colours.
If he ever did doggie haute couture, this is what it could look like :

Bella's hat is nice and warm

This hat is better suited for those warmer days

I love flowers

This is more on the wild side, I close my eyes and I pretend I'm a zebra in the African savannah - hang on, this is dangerous, there are lions out there !

A light outfit that is great to pick up sea shells by the sea side.

Enough work for now, time for a rest !

Sweet dreams my friends

If you want to join us for our next fashion parade, we would be delighted ! send us your photos at westiebella@gmail.com

Did you know ?
Scooby Doo's name was inspired by Frank Sinatra when he sang the phrase 'scooby dooby do' in the song 'Strangers in the night'.

If we can stop wishing for what we don't have and start enjoying what we have, our lives can be richer and happier. The time to be happy is now.

Take care my friends and have a great week-end !

A happy start to the day

To start our day, we love to have breakfast with Dad
It's hard to wake up though !

Thanks Dad, that's yummy !

What about me ?

What a great start to our day !

What about you, how do you like to start your day ?

News from our friends

This is our new friend Felix, before his hair cut, we wonder how he can see anything !

After his hair cut, in his favourite spot.
No Ollie, he did not grow in this flower pot, I will tell you about where puppies come from when you're older...

Cooper is a reading therapy dog and we bet that with his help, these children will be really great readers, well done Cooper !

Be glad of your life because it gives you a chance to love, to work, to play and to look up at the stars

Take care my friends and don't forget to take time to smell the roses !

Daily Digest of our Delicious Deambulations (number 12)

Today was the last day of our vacation and we went to the rock pools one last time :

What's that ?

Mr and Mrs Starfish

Rock pools are great !

Our vacation rental house was great, it had lots of stairs so we got a lot of exercise, and comfy sofas to rest after we climbed all those stairs !

We have certainly enjoyed our vacation and sharing it with you; thank you for all your comments, we will catch up on visiting your blogs when we get home.
And now we are happy to go back home and catch up on all the new smells that have been left in our absence !

Wherever you go, go with all your heart

Take care my friends and have a great week-end !

Daily Digest of our Delicious Deambulations (number 11)

Today the family went to the shell museum and look at what they saw, a dog made with shells !

In Australia, you have to drive on the left but because there are so many tourists from different countries, there are signs all along the Great Ocean Road to remind them to drive on the left because there has been so many accidents !

We have a visitor

He's hungry :

Dad has left some bread from him

Yummy !

Perfect kindness acts without thinking of kindness

Take care my friends and have a great week-end !

Daily Digest of our Delicious Deambulations (number 10)

Today we had a visit from this critter; I think he's scary but Ollie tried to eat it and it hopped away....

"Dad it's stopped raining, time for a walk !"

"This is lovely !"

Look at that !

We wanted to say hello to this bird

But it flew away to another rock :

I've rolled in the sand, so that means Anais will give me a bath when we get home :(

Mum loves artistic and orginal jellewery, so she went to see a local artist, Margaret Glance, who sells her fused glass jellewrey at the Apollo bay market every Saturday morning :

Here are some of the pendants Mum bought, aren't they wonderful ?

Kindness is more important than wisdom and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom.
Theodore Isaac Rubin
Faith sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible

Take care my friends and see you soon !
