Just beachy…bring the baklava!!

Posted in Food with tags , , on May 31, 2011 by beatricebella

Hi all. Long time no see. I know – I’ve been a bit of a slacker lately – but don’t blame me people! (blame it on my MUM!!!)

So did you all have a fantastic weekend? We did – and it involved a beach people! As usual mum forgot to take the camera so all I can post today are some pics of us at the beach in November last year that mum was too slack to help me post yet – she really is a bit of a dud…(In fact she is so much of a dud she forgot to post on our blogoversary  last Sunday!! HOPELESS!

Anyway as you can see here I am with a stick. I do love sticks and so does Dougal, though entertaining as they may be, I’m here to tell you people – they don’t taste as good as mum’s baklava!!


Did somebody say…BAKLAVA!??

Yes slack she may be – but last week she made us…BAKLAVA !!! I know I know, doggie dentist here we come but really – we had just a tiny tiny nibble, just enough to discover I really really really love pistachios…hmmmm…crunchy green goodness! Unfortunately after we ate the sweet delight it was forced toothbrushing at 50 paces – mum gave us poultry flavoured toothpaste (I would kid you not people), on a scratchy brush she rubbed on our teeth. Foul…LITERALLY!!! Bleeaaaak..!!!!

As for food scavenging  sampling techniques…while I prefer to wait on my sheepskin in the lounge-room to be presented with the sweet and delicious products of mum’s kitchen toil IN DUE COURSE, D’s preferred approach is to spend every waking moment dutifully hovering (HOOVERING more like!) in the kitchen while mum cooks – in fact he watches her every move and never leaves her side. As a result D has taken a liking to all sorts of strange foods I would never usually be offered – his very favourite at the moment being raw carrots and whole green beans.

PLLLAAASSSEEEE PEOPLE!!!!  Double bleeaaakkkk!!!

All I can say is…MUM BRING  ME THAT BAKLAVA!!!!

PS. The real reason I’m angry with mum is I only got a sniff of the baklava and a nibble of one measly syrup coated pistachio before I was subjected to the poultry flavoured toothpaste. Hrmmmpp!!! So unfair people…

Mr Rabbit makes himself at home…

Meet Mr Rabbit…

One day, not so long ago people, he just arrived unannounced…

And made himself right at home in mum & dad’s bedroom…

At night he glowed just like the moon. He didn’t say much…

No matter how much I stared…

…or how hard I bit him!

Damn rabbits!!

Team BelDou raise $510.00 for the RSPCA!!

Posted in Outings, Uncategorized with tags , , , on May 15, 2011 by beatricebella

Hi all! This is a quick news flash to let all those wonderful people who sponsored us know – our mission has been successfully completed! We joined thousands of other pups today in beautiful warm weather to complete our Million Paws walk. As you can see there was a huge crowd…

There were pups of every breed on show, some were even dressed up! We took this pic especially for Team BelDou sponsors Stephy, Kelli & Henry , and Roxy & Chai…SNAG DOG!!

Dougal’s favourites were the Great Danes, one barked in his face and he nearly jumped 10 feet in the air!

We only saw four other vizslas, all youngsters like us (sorry Gigi no pics – but thanks  so much for sponsoring us!) Also sorry Assi, Seymour, Suki and Pansey – there were no kitties allowed. This was so sad as we lub kitties so much!! (what great sports you cool cats are to sponsor a couple of pooches anyway – thank you!). (We did see a piglet on a lead visiting the shops on the way home…WHAT THA!!??)

Here we are above about 10 minutes into our walk – the doggies stretched for miles! Of course Dougal had a fit of nerves and decided he needed the…..*ahem*,  “facilities”, about 30 seconds from the start…how embarrassing!!!

Here we are at the finish line! We had a great time and raised $510.00 to help animals in need! YAY!! Thank you so much to the generous sponsors of Team BelDou – you have really made a difference! We dedicated our walk to my beautiful loving sister Sophie – Soph we were thinking of you!

You can see messages from the fantastic people who sponsored us here.

Sad news people…in my quest to raise $$ for pups not as lucky in life as me I have been a dismal failure. So far I have only raised $205.00 towards my goal to raise $5000.00 for the Royal Society for the Protection of Animals (RSPCA) in Sunday’s big walk. Tonight mum broke the terrible news that every single donation so far has been from their direct friends & family. How lucky are we to have such loving, caring and generous people in our lives (you know who you are Stephy, Fred & Rae, Annie M, Rach, David M & family… – thank you!) but if only a few people who read my blog every day could donate just a tiny bit – imagine how much I could raise for a good cause…!!
