A special breed...

Don't you just love this!

Thought we'd pop in to say hallo to everyone! We've been scarce but certainly very busy! Little Ms Abbey has been on a few road trips since we last posted and last weekend she was the team mascot for our cycling team, she joined the backup team in the vehicle for all of 210km!

Here she is with her dad at one of the feeding stops...

Looking at this picture I have to say, it's amazing how such a tiny little creature can melt a grown man's heart the way this little one does! "Show me where the bullies are..." could very well be the caption for this picture as well! :)

I don't know about you, but I for one continue to be amazed by the truly special people who cross my path via the blogging world. Last night I chatted to my South African blogging buddy, Caryl, for the first time. What a special conversation we had! Caryl has just published her first book and I can't wait to read my very own copy! She's posting it to me today and you can be sure that I'll be posting a review somewhere in the near future!

Caryl and I chatted about what a special breed dog/cat bloggers are and she really gave me loads of food for thought. We do adapt writing styles when we write alongside or by mouth of our animals and by doing so we certainly attract a very special audience. Mostly people who can identify and I have to say, people who seem to be incredibly caring and loyal. I think that this is one of the reasons I have been unable to say goodbye to this blog - somehow I sense, every time I look at my little silent family of 51 followers, that there are amazing friends in that little group. 

I am forever grateful that I started Abbey's blog and as she and my three other four legged children will never actually utter an actual word to me - their love and friendship is as tangible as the love and friendship that I share with the humans in my life.

So, to all my blogging friends out there - THANK YOU so much for taking time to share of yourselves in your blogs. I feel honoured to be a member of this exclusive club and Maxmom - a big hug to you today!

    Your pal, Pip

  3. Love the "Show Me..." poster! That is awesome! And Abbey with her dad is absolutely adorable!

    What a great post! Maxmom is amazing and her book on Maxdog looks wonderful. I, too, love the animal blogging community I have met. They are such warm, caring, giving, generous, kind, and loving people. And it is genuine. I can't say enough good things about the people I have "met" in the animal blogging world. Glad you are experiencing that too. :->

  4. Hi there Abbey and Emilene,
    Thank you so much for the shout-out about my book. Yes, the doggie-bloggie community is a truly special family. BTW, I loved your more recent post about your trip to Madeira. That feathered friend of yours is pretty awesome. I'm not surprised that you couldn't resist posting about him.
    Also...just wanted to wish you a very happy new year. May you be blessed out of your socks this year and may your preparations for the Camino go steaming ahead :)
