Ho Hum + Saturday Blog Hop

It's been something of a ho hum week.  Nothing has happened to blog about ... unless you want to read about Beryl almost waking me up just before 1 am a couple of nights ago because she HAD to go outside.  I say almost waking me up as I don't think I really did wake up even though I managed to get her outside in time and myself back to bed.  I wondered what on earth the weird noise was, I knew it wasn't Frankie so murkily worked out it must be Beryl.  She's never made a peep in her crate before (except for the time I rudely forgot to put the second duvet in one night and she indignantly moaned about that for a while before deciding it wasn't worth it and going to sleep).  So it's good to know she will yodel if she needs taking out during the night:-)  Frankie was funny, he hopped into her crate to keep her bed warm while she was doing 35 circles on the lawn:-)  But I think he had an ulterior motive ... he would have been worried she might race up to 'our' bed and I'd be too soft to put her back into her crate, lol!  But she jumped back in and settled down.

Anyway, this afternoon Fatima and I took our kids and a couple of the GAP Greyhounds for a walk down the park and a run in the velodrome.  I didn't take many photos as it started to drizzle but here's 1 of each of them ....
The handsome Snuffles
This guy is a big chap and such a cuddle monster:-)  He just wants someone to love.  He had a great time getting out and about.
The lovely Shannon
She is a little slip of a girl, bit of a madam but lots of personality and charm.   And so pretty!

And this is just a cute photo I took of my kids a few days ago:-)
Beryl putting on the brakes!
This is the kids supervising me vacuum yesterday.  I'm a bit surprised they didn't run away, it doesn't happen very often, lol!
We'd better make sure you don't miss anything!
And finally - a series of photos I took this afternoon of Beryl watching over Frankie (literally) while he munched on a biscuit.  This wouldn't have been possible a few months ago:-)
Uh oh, this could be tricky?
Oooo, dare I?
I luff ya Sis xox (flattery might help)
Nom, nom, nom
Enough with the eating, lets play?
OK little bro, you asked for it:-)
I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  It's raining again here!

Now it's time for the Saturday Blog Hop ... off you go to Life With Dogs for the instructions:-)

Could you just put Shannon in a box and mail her here, please? I love the little cheeky madams!

I love Beryl and Frankie playing with that treat! What a duo they make. I keep expecting them to show up at some point both wearing superhero capes!
