By Simi the dog

Hello, folks. It's Simi here! I bet that surprised you, didn't it?! My Mummy asked me to tell you we're a day late with Auntie mountaingirl's Photo Challenge and that's because Mummy was out shopping with Auntie Marie-Laure from la belle France and Uncle David yesterday and then she cooked for them. I, of course, had them eating out of my hand [well, really I was eating out of theirs] and I got lots of attention and cuddles.

The Photo Challenge theme this week is "Sparkling" and that's lucky because something sparkling arrived in the post this week. I knew it was for me as soon as I saw the envelope:

It came all the way from Spain-land. [That's where Spaniels come from, you know.] "Hmmm, this looks interesting and it's got ribbon for me to pull", I thought:

Then I saw the card, with two adventurous, travelling doggies just like me on it. And it's got a badge that says, "Ciao, baby". Isn't that cool?

After I'd licked the card and helpfully tangled the ribbon around myself, I saw that inside the pretty paper was this elegant shoe for me to play with

and this beautiful doggy-coat!

It has sparkles on the back, where it says "Princess" [that's me!]

It has a trendy hood, too. [Oh, I know how to model!]

Don't you love the style?

It was a present from my Auntie MaryAnn in Barcelona. She comments on our blog and she asked if she could quote us in a book she is writing about Sicily. So the present is to thank me for my wise words. Auntie MaryAnn was worried that maybe the coat wouldn't fit so do you know what she did? She tried it on her son's teddy, then sent the photo to Mummy to see what she thought. After consulting me, Mummy wrote back and said she thought it would be fine and so it is! But a teddy - I ask you!

Now I can't wait for the autumn so that I can go out in my lovely, SPARKLY new coat! Thank you, Auntie MaryAnn and eat your heart out, Eva Riccobono!

Love to Auntie MaryAnn and all my fans,
Simi xx woof!

Simi, you look absolutely gorgeous in your lovely new coat.
I don't need a coat in the cold weather as I just don't go out.
I only go out daytime when the sun shines and it's very warm.
The thought of rain or frost on my well manicured nails and my pretty pin pads makes me just curl up in a ball and go to sleep...zzzzzzz.
Normally, I don't like dogs but you're the exception, as you are definitely humanoid, just like moi.

Purr purr,

Your friend, Chloe.x

Pssst. Mummy and Daddy think you look gorgeous too.xxxx

Simi's looking resplendent.

Delightful interpretation of the latest theme: une Simi toute etincelante, eblouissante meme - la classe, quoi! Mais t'es toujours tendance et glamour, toi - comme ta maman (occupe-toi bien de celle-la, hein?).
Calins et bises a vous deux, P

Simi dit: Bienvenu, agapitos et merci.
Hi, Barbara. Simi says "warf!" to you, too and sends hugs. Yes, she will be très chic.
Simi says: Hi, Chloe. You are very sensible not to go out in the cold over there! I don't usually like cats, but you and alex [Uncle Nick's cat] are exceptions. Lots of cuddles, Simi xx woof!
Simi: Thank you, Auntie Cherie! x
Simi: I like that word, Uncle James! x
Simi dit. Chère tante Phidelm, tu es bien gentille. J'adore la parole "étincelante"! Et tu as raison - j'ai de la classe, moi! Ne t'inquiète pas - je soigne bien ma maman! Bons baisers, Simi xx

Simi you look like a million bucks in that new coat! How nice of your aunt to send you such wonderful gifts!

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Simi says: "Grazie, zia WW." "Hello. Auntie Mary Ann. Thank you again for my lovely coat and shoe! We shoe-girls must stick together! Love from Mummy too to all of you in Spaniel-Land. xx woof!" "Thank you, Auntie Rowena. I think I look pretty glam too! Yes, it was very kind of Auntie MaryAnn. Love to Maddie and the pup. xx woof!"
