New toys and a musical interlude...

Hey look at my new toys; Mum found them at the opportunity shop - I love them, aren't they nice ?

Let's play some nice music; now how does this thing work ?

Take it from me, the piano is much easier !

You know, I like having my photo taken so much that if I see Dad go near his camera bag, I prepare myself for a photo session, but I don't let Dad get away with it if he thinks he is going to take a photo of someone else ! This happened yesterday, so I said "Woo woo woo woo woo ! " and here's the result :

Note from Dad : I just noticed that the Translate tool on the side of the blog doesn't include doggie language, so I'll translate for you what Bella said : "Dad, I'm ready, come and take a photo !". Well what could I do, I couldn't resist taking a photo of my beautiful Bella...

We've been given an award :

With this award, comes a few instructions :
1) Thank HeartPrint Pets for sharing it; they "celebrate the creatures that leave their imprints in our hearts", and we think it's such a great idea.
2) Share 7 things about ourselves :
  • I am Bella the Westie and I was born on April 14, 2008
  • I am Ollie the Papillon and I was born on April 17, 2010
  • We believe that we can all make the world a better place by sharing our love and happiness, each of us in our own special way.
  • We live in Australia, and we are very happy to have friends from all around the world
  • Our blog started in November 2009
  • We have a loving family with our Mum and Dad, one hunan brother, two human sisters and a bird.
  • We love wearing the outfits that Mum finds for us, and the attention and treats we get too !
3) Pass this award to 15 bloggers who we think are fantastic (it's hard to pick 15 because so many are fantastic)
Do you know these blogs ? If you don't, go and visit them to say hello!
Take care my friends until next time we meet...

Okay your pictures are so cute and make us smile miles and miles away! That is funny that your westie loves posing. Ours doesn't want to look at the camera he always looks away unless I am jumping up and down or whistling or basically acting like something is wrong with me. Glad you have so much fun with your puppies, too!
