We love our Daddy !

On Sunday it was father's day in Australia, so we had a big celebration for our Daddy; we gave him lots of presents, hugs and licks - look how happy he is with us !

I've been waking up Mum and Dad in the middle of the night - they were really tired so now I'm sleeping on a sofa in the living room instead of Amelie's bed and they gave me Amelie's night gown as a blanket so I have her smell. Oh, what a hard life I have !
And then my friend Cinnabar wrote to me saying she had been waking up her Mum during the night  as well so Dad thought, is this a global occurrence - have any of you been waking up your family in the middle of the night ? Or could it be that we have felt the earthquake in nearby New Zealand ?

Hey look Bella, I've found this really neat hiding place so I can hide when I've been naugty, but don't tell Mum and Dad !

If you want an extra chance of winning our new book, here's a new guessing game : how many paw steps are there in the book ? Here are some hints :
- There is at least one paw step per letter of the alphabet
- Some paw steps (for example, believe in Angels) have more than one page, and the book has 80 pages.
Send your guess to westiebella@gmail.com .

You will be able to order our book soon through this blog, but also through Pet Book Stars - have a look, there are some lovely books and calendars from some of our friends Twinkie, Corgi Country and the Elgin Pugs - if you know of other pet book authors, get them to contact me at  westiebella@gmail.com

For my next "Fantastic Fashion Friday", I will be wearing dots, from head to toes, do you want to join me ? If you have anything with dots, whether it's a hat, bandana, pajama... send a photo to westiebella@gmail.com before Friday and we'll have a great time together !

No act of love however small is ever wasted

Lilac has been known to wake us all up in the middle of the night, but fortunately, she hasn't done it lately. We're all glad for that!

I like Ollie's hiding spot!

I don't think we have any polka dots. I'll have to go look!

No polka dot clothes, but I wake my people up in the middle of the night. Even though we're in the USA I think I will blame it on the New Zealand earthquake too!

We loved the way you celebrated with your Dad for your Father's Day Holiday! Grammy said she had heard about your earthquake and was hoping that everything was ok with you all. That could very well have been why you were having nervous nights, she said. We often wake our parents at night, but it's usually because the "Song Dogs" (Coyotes) are singing right against our fence outside! The CCC
