Photo Scavenger Hunt - April


Mum's doin' her Scavenger Hunt again - against all odds because we have been super busy this month with my stay at uncle "boot-camp" because my peeps abandoned me so they could drive 1000km away to visit friends in another state. Plus we are busy with my Birthday event - Pawtners N' Pals as well.

So we will be brief and to the point:

Hosted by the blog postcards from the P.P 

Mum says her "wine matched" 3 course lunch at Brown Brothers Winery, Milawa, Victoria was AMAZING (especially the beef eye fillet) 

CHOCOLATE ...... I can't help her eating this..... bummer... but she is nuts for it (***especially Lindt White***)

On their drive home to come and collect me from uncie "boot-camp" - they followed the direction to Adelaide.

This is me and my "in/out" doggie door - made for me by my dad dad. This allows me complete freedom!

Mum says a good coffee is a regular required indulgence..... hey -  good propping mum! She says this is the first coffee she had on her short holiday in Bright.

Hey we have funny cows here in Australia!!! Here is a jelly bean one in Shepparton, Victoria. It's part of a "mooo-ving art display".

This is a picture taken in the car on my peeps' big drive. They were on the move for sure.

This is me sitting on a big rock at our local Cove. I was admirin' the view.

Mum says I have the best smile!

One of our Spring flowering bulbs pictured last Spring. (It's Autumn here in Australia)

Glue, honey and sticky tape.....all sticky. I'm tryin' to get to the honey.

Me in a Tangle of Tinsel.

So there it is...... 6 / 12 for mum this month (I score her on the number of her photos that include ME!) Which is barely a pass, Ma - so you better lift your game for next month.

Changing subjects - last call for Pawtners N' Pals entries to my Birthday Event. Go to my 14/4/12 post for details...... there are GREAT pictures already received - there are only a matter of hours before closing.....there are only 3.5 hours left in Australia...and I'm accepting pictures till about 3 or 4pm tomorrow 30th April) to account for the other side of the world being behind in time. So hop to it...... great Birthday presents on offer!!

Bye for Now, Tail Wuggles, Rubie xxx

But, I have to be fair and say...... IMMEDIATE family members cannot enter! 

(That's YOU Scarlet and Zoe)(*rolling eyes skyward*)

They first tried to enter this photo - because they said there is a big "likeness" between them. (We in fact, call Zoe Scarlet's MINI ME)

Then they decided to get cute........and so a photo shoot was done..

Zoe went first...... showin' how great she is......

But that didn't LAST LONG!!

Then Scarlet wanted to pictured with the little furry PAL......

And then she gave her auntie (my mum) a super cute look to the flashy box..........awwwww!

They'll do ANYTHINGY to try and enter!!

But sorry cousins, you cannot enter. Lucky mum gave you consolation prizes of hugs, kisses, milk bones, dried fish and liver treats!!

NOW for EVERYONE ELSE...... get creative and get entering your pictures. You have until the 29th April - but don't leave it to the last know how PEEPS love to Pro-kras-tin-ate!!

Happy Easter ( it WAS!)

We went to Grandpaws' place for Easter Sunday. We met my Auntie and Uncie, along with Scarlet and Zoe there.

Me, Scarlet and Zoe - admiring the Easter Table Setting.

If you look close - you can see OUR doggie "easter egg cookies" mum made special for us given we cannot eat chocolate ones. They are this side of centre in little cello bags with gold ribbons. They are "chicken satay with seeds" flavour.

Mum and auntie prepared lunch - they had creamy potato bake, roast pumpkin, roast pork and gravy, duck confit with sour cherry sauce and buttered parsley carrots. It's smelled so yummers!!!

My eyes were firmly on that duck and pork!!!

After peep lunch, and our sampling, we each got a doggie "easter egg" - mum made them all pretty with stickers and stuff.

ZOE:    OOOoooooo peel the eggies auntie!!!!!!!! Quick!

So mum peeled them - one by one (far too slowly for our liking) - and we each got a whole easter egg to nom.

I woofed mine down.

Zoe Zoes was next.

And then Scarlet got hers - see how dainty she takes her pieces. Not like me - mum has to be careful she doesn't lose a finger with my technique!!

All of a sudden - uncie, mum and I went outside - and I suddenly got nervous because there was grooming equipments set up.

So I got my hairs trimmed    :-( 

Mum says I really needed it because I couldn't see through my eyebrows anymore. What would she know!!

I got to play at "half time" with my cousins to blow off some pent up "steam" from standin' on the groomin' table.

See my face not done yet - and my peeps think the "tassle" on the end of my tail is "CUTE" - I pointed to the breed grooming expectation of a mini schnauzer and there is nothing like this goin' on!! My mate Magic's mum will tell ya! It's sooo hard to get good help.

ZOE: Hurry up with your hair cut Rubie - I am waiting for sweets to be served!!! 

The peeps had their sweets (white chocolate and passionfruit mousse) served inside chocolate eggs!!! You can get the full recipe from mum's personal blog (link in my sidebar) - it will go up shortly.

Us doggies had some chicken satay egg cookies - sorry mum was too occupied doin' dishes and stuff to get the pics. Dad dad gave them to us.

When I got home - I just wanted to snooze on my couch with my new Chicken easter Stuffie. 

I just want to say - even with the hair-cut - that was a great day, and I hope your Easter was as Happy as MINE was!!!!! (minus the grooming bit of course!)

Get Ready - Easter is almost HERE!

Hiya all,

I participated in this Easter themed photo shoot because I did not see any novelty bunny ears amongst the props mum collected. I thought I was safe.

Oh how WRONG I was. (*sigh*)

This photo shoot is goin' to cost you a bucket load of Liver Treats mum ....... Just sayin'!

Yes - I can keep my "ears" on while lying down...

Ooooooo...... you say I can't have any of the chocolate stuffs, but the chicken stuffie is ALL MINE !!!! Woo Hooo !!! 

Ah Ha!!! The catch is I can't have it till SUNDAY??!! Story of my day ma!!! (*Humph*)

Hey DAD DAD !!!!!! Save ME!!! Surely ma had a BAZILLION photos of me already!!! It's time for my walk isn't it!!!!!!!!!

NOW THIS is what I think of Novelty Bunny Ears......and ma.... I'm a SCHNAUZER, that's a dog, NOT a Bunny Rabbit!!!!

We are going to Grandpaws' for Easter on Sunday - and there are going to be treats on offer for Scarlet , Zoe and me. I can't wait. I'll post the pictures.

Have a GREAT EASTER everyone !!!!!!!!

PeeS: I want to send a special HAPPY EASTER to my beautiful peep relatives in Sweden - they'll be readin' this post!!!! xxxx ooooo xxxx
