Do you want to come to my hat parade ?

I'm having a hat parade; get your hat(s), get your Mum or Dad to take a photo and send it to me - I'll put the photos on the blog next week.
Any hat will do - a cap, a beanie, a fashion hat, a wig, or a little bow in your hair...
Today Mum bought me a new dress and here are the hats I tried with it; what do you think, which one suits me best ?

And here's some hats with some other outfits !

Did you know ?
In Australian schools, students cannot go outside to play during the warm months if they don't have a hat; it's part of the SunSmart policy : "Slip on a shirt, Slop on sunscreen, and Slap on a hat".

Can you please go and visit Autumn the Maltese; her Mum is in a difficult situation; she is very brave and kind and she would be very happy to have some love and encouragement.

The days are getting short here, I keep telling Dad to hurry up to take me for a walk, but sometimes by the time we finish, it's very dark. Well it doesn't bother me thatr much, I can still sniff as much as I want and Dad gets to take some photos...

A hat can protect you, it can make you look lovely and pretty and feel happy.

Oh dear Miss Bella, you look smashing in every single one of your hats and outfits. I can't pick, I just can't...no way.
I did go see Autumn's mom this am and left a comment. Her is in a sticky situation. The medical expenses can and will be hefty. Maybe hers should buy a lotto ticket.

Miss Bella,
I LUVS all your most beautiful hats, but I thinks my favorite is the cute lady bug one. Mom said she will tries to put a hat on me and take a picture, but she is not too hopeful for a good outcome...

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

PeeS We are on our way over to see Autumn and her mom right now.

You look beautiful in all of your hats - we might have a few pictures in our archives to send you.

Thank you for your sweet gifts. We loved them all and our Dad immediately claimed the boomerang key ring - he is a Geography teacher so we thought it very appropriate for him. Our Mom, on the other hand, liked the Australia one because she says it resembles a Scottie head.

You looks GORGEOUS in all your hats, Bella. But I thinks I luvs you in your little hair bow the best. I had so much fun at your pj pawty that I'd luvs to come to the hat pawty but, well, I'm just not a hat dog. Everytime mom tries to put one on me, it's OFF in half a second! But I can't wait to see what everybuddy else wears on their head!

Bella, you look lovely in your hats! I like that last red one the best! We have lots of hats. I'll try to get Mom to find a good picture of me wearing one and send it to you soon!

We got your package in the mail today and I was super excited! You sent so much cool stuff! Thank you a million times!


Unknown said...

Hi Bella - thanks so much for coming over to visit me and I'm sorry it's taken me so long to return your visit! I always love making new friends and it's nice to know another doggie in Australia!

You are just so adorable!! And my human is so envious of your human that she gets to dress you up in cute things - they never make anything pretty or cute for big doggies! (Well, we would probably look more ridiculous than cute wearing them!)

I will try to get my human to take a picture of me in a hat to send to you!

We love all the hats on you and it's a very tough choice.. But I guess the lady bug strikes the most !! I would love to take part in your little party.. Will see if I could get a picture of me in a hat or something !!


ocmist said...

Bella, you are so cute in ALL of your hats... We really like the pink ruffly one and the plaid ones the best we think. That's a really smart policy for the school, too!

We have a couple of us in Santa hats and in Birthday hats... The CCC

Hi, Bella, thanks for coming over to visit my blog. I love your hats and I think you must have a humongous wardrobe! Penny can't really send a pic of her in a hat because she would just take it off, lol.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Oh Bella, your beauty and good taste in fashion made my heart fluttered!
It's hard to decide which outfit and hat that I love most, I love them all but I especially love the red hat with black bows on it. It brings out the best of you Bella.
I just sent my hat photo to you as you asked me to.
And a heartfelt to you for sending love to Autumn&Jasmine's Mom and spreading the news efficiently.
Love ya!

Oskar said...

Oh I have just the perfect shot for this!

I will go over & say Hi to Autumn's family.

I have a post full of sadness with similiar requests today.

I'll be posting about the pressies I got from you tomorrow if my mom person gets the time!
