The Sad Side of Blogging


"Hello" I've asked George if he would like to join me on my new monthly Tess as you've not seen much of him over the last month. I know you girlies must be missing him.

Lets get started, George its over to you.


We Got Mail

All the way across the pond from
The Road Dogs.

We took part in their The Duck Tape Festival sending a photo of something made from duck tape.

Duck Tape George!

We got picked out in the draw by Erine
Frankie's New Brother
Thanks Erine, poor little feller is having a bit of a bad time at the moment, with his op not healing, so we wish him a speedy recovery  

 Look at all the goodies

There was a lovely letter enclosed
A Pit Bull calendar, we spotted two of our blogging friends in it Roo and Corbin.

A Modern Dog Magazine, we enjoyed looking through this as you have all different items for dogs, over the pond.


Made in The Road Dogs Home town Charleston, we couldn't wait to try some.

4 Paws Up we love the treats and the other goodies
 Thanks Road Dogs 


Dad's Christmas Present!! 

Well it matches my collar

"Hey George come and look at this"

"Dad are you really going to learn to play that thing!!! I'm not to sure our ears will put up with you practising!!!"

"Mom did you buy him this?"

I am so happy that I literally have a lump in my throat and I am about to cry. I really am. I have missed you all and to see you back with these DARLING MUG FACES AND TEETH AND WIT AND PICTURES is making my Wednesday a better one already. Jan, I see that Howard is ready to strike up the band and TEA RAT IS JEALOUS! HE WANTS ONE OF THOSE SHINY INSTRUMENTS to wail away and get DOWN!!! GEORGIE, TESS DEAREST, you too are the best in reporting the news. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE PAWTY! KISSES AND HUGS!!

Taryn said...

Tess and George,
Wilson and Jimmy want you to know....If it makes you feel any better, they live in a house with 2 electric guitars, 2 acoustic guitars, a banjatar (abanjo/guitar hybrid), and on top of all of that a harmonica! The noise levels can reach quite a pitch at times!

Amber DaWeenie said...

So much stuffs going on. Love your news alerts, Tess. Keep up da great works. Dat was a nice walkie you went on too!


Cranberry Morning said...

I am sorry to hear about your doggie friends. :-( thanks for the pics of Wenlock Edge. What beautiful countryside! And I can't wait for George to learn to play the fiddle...oh wait, it wasn't for George, was it. ;-)

Thanks for the great report, sweet Tess. We are so sad to hear about Maggie and Amber, and send comforting purrs and prayers to the loved ones they left behind.

Ryker said...

Oh what fun, you two are always so intertaining!
You got some Puppy Crack! Watch out with that stuff, I hear it can be addicting.
My dad got a drum set for Christmas...we should get them together and then they could make a real racket!!!

Kinley Westie said...

You two are too cute!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Now Tess... George is very much correct to ... monitor your activities ... Ernie was beggin to get into the Kissing Boot TOO... butt I said ... N O Way!! You two will have your chance.. Next Year when you are a tad older.

Wenlock Edge is just BEAUTIFUL.. I think I could see until Forever!!

I surely do miss both of you.

I am so glad that you got your pressie package fur the DUCK TAPE thingy. You did a super job and certainly Deserved to win. I noticed that you didn't mention your mom's BUMPER today.. hehhehe
PeeS... remember the cool Recipe Booklet and the Bone shaped Cookie cutter that Ernie won? Well, we have been makin MOM bake Home Made Milkbones and using the cutter. OMD.. they are Delicious.

Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Hey Bro' and Tess - another great edition of exciting stuffs - you should be a real reporter Tess, like for a noospaper or somethin'!! Mum loved the look of that pub...she so craves for "history" but says our country is just too young!!! It is sad you know, as soon as we notice anythingy old and lovely (like buildings and gravestones) they often targets for councils to knock over and replace with "new" ugly stuffs!!! Best not dwell on it ma!!

Anywho - glad you are enjoyin' your flashers - tell your ma that the batteries should last a long time but when they do die, she can get a packet on them on the net - just type in the code that is printed on the battery!

Luff ya, your sis, Rubie

The Daily Pip said...

Wow, that's a pretty fancy red guitar. Maybe your dad can play at the next blogville event!

We will definitely be participating in Earth Hour.

Your pal, Pip

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Mostly all good news in your report, Tess, with George's assistance. We too were very sad about sweet Maggie. We didn't know Amber, but we are sending our sympathy to her family too.

When Dad learns to play that instrument, can you make us a video so we can hear it too?

have a great FebWOOary.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

Wyatt said...

That is one action packed 'Tuesday Tess'! Our Aire heads are spinning! Thanks for joining us in the Valentines festivities :D

Wyatt and Stanzie

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Howdy George and Tess, that was a busy month you all had. The pressie was grreat and well deserved. Your Duck Tape George was fun. We don't know much about musical instruments but your Dad's christmas present looks heaps cool.

We miss Maggie too and although we didn't know Amber we send our sincere sympathy to both their families.

Take care all. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Ivy Clad said...

That pub looks so inviting! George, you keep an eye on that Tess. With her pretty face the boys will be singling HER out to join their "pucker up" queues.

I'm so sorry about Maggie and Amber. I know they will be greatly missed.

Love from Keri and Chester the Airedale in the US!

All4UrPet said...

Ohh what awesome pictures! Looks like quite the adventure!

Love your posts. I have I laughed out loud when I saw the "Puppy Crack". What a great name for dog treats. Glad you enjoyed the Rat Poetry Slam. Rattus and Tea Rat are exhausted and are taking a well deserved rest.
All the best, George and Tess, and don't get addicted to too much crack.
All the best,

Oh, love is in the air and I suspect that by now, you have entered into Tuesday and are well on your way to CELEBRATE WITH LOTS OF FUZZY KISSES!!! I receive your fuzzy wuzzy love all the way from the other side of the pond.....we are so busy too.

J_on_tour said...

Well that was a newsy post that had everything except the weather ! I know it may look ordinary to everyone else but I particularly like the fourth last photo.
On a side note, as I play Bass guitar and a bit of normal acoustic, I never know how people who use fretless know exactly where to hold the string to keep in tune.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...
