Perches and Hide-Aways

Happy Memorial Day !! It's Sephie & Bailey here (Do they have a "Memorial Day" in the UK or Down Under?) and we're getting ready for the Grand Annual Family Picnic and Ritual Grilling of Raw Meat.

First, we wanted to share some secrets about our most treasured spots to watch the goings-on about the neighborhood.

We Kerry Blues are notorious busy-bodies, and nothing within six thousand leagues will escape our notice! We require the highest perch at the Mainmast (translate: the back steps to Grandma's Penthouse) in order to spot, report on, and bark at all intruding warships, squirrels, and satanic Westhighland terriers.

Oftentimes, it's necessary to stick one's neck out to get the best view of the terrain.

This is the quintessential "Bailey" profile!

And from a squirrel's perspective, the formidable dynamic duo will prevent all access to the Sanctum Sanctorum.

Doesn't Bailey look really fierce? Those are oak tassels in her mouth, but she would have you think that they're squirrel entrails.

And here's me--Persephone, Goddess of the Underworld, in my secret, secret hide-away, underneath the potting table in back of the shed. Being a creature of the earth, I need, well, DIRT around me. I used to hide under the stairway to the deck, until Dad barricaded it up!

Okay, it's picnic time! Time to look cute and beg.

That's a great vantage point you have there, to watch the comings and goings of all living things (and probably some non-living ones too). Hope you got lots of "fall-outs" from the picnic!

G'day Seph & Bailey,
Hmmm you know what, we don't have Memorial Day here in Oz. We do celebrate ANZAC day on April 25. This commemorates the Australian and New Zealand soldiers that fought at Gallipoli during WW1. Sadly it was a disaster and many lost their lives.

Hugs and tail wags

Hello Persephone and Buster!
You'll see from our blog that we can't use your beautiful name after all - because the little bubba is a boy! Oh well, we'll save it up for later maybe..... But how do you like Ptolomy? It is similar don't you think? Since you are so great at names, can you think of any other good ones? We like Rupert and Bertram too....oh it is too difficult!
(ps - Buster, well, we think you suit your name far too well for us to steal it away from you, but thanks anyway!)
Love Molly and Gertrude

You guys have such awesome fuzz!!! And you are so lucky that you are able to go down the stairs...I only go up!

Your humans are so lucky to have you as the look out!

When you get your goody package don't forget to go over to Chef's Album and submit the pictures of you opening your Goody Package!
