Red is the colour all the stylish terriers are wearing this season..Lol. :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

Thats a great fashion statement did he knit it to?

13 Nov, 2009

 

Lol. No Truffle didn't knit the hat, but I reckon he would be good at making those furry bobbles, don't you. ?..:o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

great photo,it really suits him.

13 Nov, 2009

 

Ah Truffle looks so cute...... perhaps he is getting ready to help santa.......

13 Nov, 2009

 

looks if Truffle is getting ready for the Vancouver (GOY) Winter Wellie Olympics ..lol. great pic TT

13 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks, Suey, Holly, Deida....
All through December, Truffle is going to help Santa, and then after New Year celebrations, he'll step up training for the GoY Winter Wellie Olympics.... he has LOTS of plans for this winter. :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

good luck with all your training Truffle..........

13 Nov, 2009

 

Truffle says thankssssssssssss :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

Truffle, what a great hat, I may need to get one, do they make them with a plastic covering as it is absolutely bucketing down here today, even I am rained off.

13 Nov, 2009

 

bucketing down here on south coast to... Doctorbob1

13 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Doctorbob.... I reckon Truffle might be wearing a rain hat UNDER his red woolly fashion statement... ;o)
Gosh, it must be a heavy rainstorm if both you and Holly are sheltering from the showers. ! :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

OMG...he does suit red doesn't he!!!
It would be absolutely the right gear for up here today - chilly but SUNNY - yippee!

13 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Alz...
Scotland certainly deserves some sunshine.
Your Golden Girls would look good fancy head gear...Lol.

13 Nov, 2009

 

He looks bewildered lol :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

lol. Hywel...
Truffle has that same stunned expression, with or without a hat...
I think he is bewildered because we aren't sure the variety of the hebe.
Do you know please ?

13 Nov, 2009

 

Well look at that, now the sun is trying to shine, hope it is for you too Holly, time to rally the troops again.

13 Nov, 2009

 

I know that expression with Truffle. He always has it like you say. :o)
He enjoys playing.

I don't know the variety of Hebe. - Now I have the same expression as Truffle lol :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

Lol. Hywel... as long as you aren't wearing a knitted red hat...Lol.
.....Send some sunshine my way please Doctorbob. :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

Before I go, I think it is Glaucophylia Variegata.

13 Nov, 2009

 

Oh yes , I AM wearing a knitted red hat aswell lol - with a tossel on the top :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks, Doctorbob... I'll tell Truffle then he won't look so bemused..:o)
Hywel....I bet you look VERY handsome. Lol.

13 Nov, 2009

 

lol :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

I looked up Glaucophylla variegata, and the leaves on that one look slimmer than on Truffle's plant... not absolutely certain...
Truffle looks a bit puzzled again..Lol.

13 Nov, 2009

 

Truffles looks great in his hat:o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Truffle love your new hat!

13 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks Clarice and Pansypotter...
Truffle has to take turns with Conker, for wearing it. Lol. :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

He reminds me of somone.

13 Nov, 2009

 

He's saying "Do I have to wear this ?" :))

13 Nov, 2009

 

Aster... Truffle says...
I want to wear this FIRST...
...Conker must wait his turn...

Oh, Toto... Truffle thinks he looks handsome in this hat, so I hope he reminds you of someone who is good looking..Lol.

13 Nov, 2009

 

TT I have just put on a photo of my hebe,unfortunately it didn't flower this year due to sawfly but the colour of the flower is the same as yours on my label .

13 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks Aster...
..actually I found the hebe photo before I read your comment above.Lol.

13 Nov, 2009

 

Ha ha ha ha ha, love it.

13 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Dawn...
your Houseleek babies have been very well-behaved today...
.. I can't say quite the same about Truffle..Lol.

13 Nov, 2009

 

That's good TT, how would they dare misbehave in your care ..... however, what has Truffle been up to besides wearing his Vivienne Westwood collection.

13 Nov, 2009

 

lol. Dawn...
Truffle is into a phase of "stealing" my possessions... pencils, pens, nail-file etc....
...trouble is, he then tries to eat them....
... I'm having to be very vigilant !

13 Nov, 2009

 

Aw Truffle...he reminds me of Andy Capp TT...Lol!

13 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Janey.... Truffle thinks he looks FAB. in this hat. :o) Lol.

13 Nov, 2009

 

Oh TT, this picture made me laugh !
I'm not convinced Truffle likes that hat though ;-)

13 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Louise... Thanks.
Truffle makes me laugh when he wears anything...
...he takes it SO seriously !
The only way to convince you how much Truffle likes the hat, would be to make a blog showing his excitement when I first produce the hat... waggy tail....
his pushing forward to make sure HE wears it - NOT Conker.. and his look of disappointment when I take the hat off again.... Lol.

13 Nov, 2009

 

You should do as N2 does TT, make a video of it :-)))))

13 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Louise... it is probably Conker's trick routines which I should video, but I don't have a camera.... but I will make a blog of those soon.... :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

I bet he's hiding some malt crunchies under his hat - trying to keep one step ahead of Conker :)

13 Nov, 2009

 

Lol. Gee.... you've rumbled the truth....
a week's supply of Malt Crunchies accessible via the woollen bobble...:o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

LOL. Great picture

13 Nov, 2009

 

Oh thats fantastic, cheered me up no end!! Suits you Truffle!!

13 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks Jean and Skilla...
Truffle will be pleased to know he's made you smile. :o)

13 Nov, 2009

 

Yep, red is definitely Truffle`s colour, so chic and this year....lol! ;o)

Sandra xx

13 Nov, 2009

 

Truffle likes to be a trendy boy :o) xx

13 Nov, 2009

 

That is so funny Terra, lmso (Iknow what that means now) His expression is priceless I'll favourite for when I need a laugh:-))))))

13 Nov, 2009

 

awwwww truffle you look addorable in your very trendy hat, the colour is soo you ;o))

13 Nov, 2009

 

Haha I love it that has gone straight to my favourites.

14 Nov, 2009

 

I love it TT!!

14 Nov, 2009

 

Great pic Terra, bet his ears are really toasty under that hat - perhaps a matching one for Conker? But what about Crocus...........
I 'killed' a hebe like the one in your picture :-( I was so busy keeping it 'moist' I drowned it !
Nice to see you can get into the garden with your boys. looks like you have a lot of rain around right now.
Chris xx
I just had a thought - if you get any snow you can start your own 'ski wear' range :-)

14 Nov, 2009

 

Love it....doggie range of skis and tobbogans coming up, with doggie ski jackets as well.

14 Nov, 2009

 

Don't forget - goggles, boots etc, quite an extensive range. Better check with TT the hourly rates of both Truffle and Conker and book a photo shoot!!!
Chris xx

14 Nov, 2009

 

Is it in America that they dress their doggies up in fashionable gear?

14 Nov, 2009

 

Lots, of comments to catch up with...
sorry, been chasing the right medication from the vet to make Conker feel a bit better,....now achieved... :o)

Thanks, Bornagain, Sandra, Bob, Skillen, Chris and Linda...
Truth is, my dogs absolutely ADORE entering fancy dress competitions...at the summertime charity dog shows....we all enjoy ourselves while raising money for good causes... so both dogs have a whole wardrobe of outfits...Lol. xxx

14 Nov, 2009

 

Oh now that's just dandy Truffle! What a poser!

Glad Conker feeling better.xx

14 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Fluff....
Yes thanks...Conker has started the new medication today...
Truffle is a very fashionable Fox Terrier isn't he...Lol...
Needs that hat in today's wet, windy weather. ! :o)

14 Nov, 2009

 

LOL..oh Truffle you are so good at this!..you have such a good face to show us how much you love being a model..LOL..!!!

14 Nov, 2009

 

Hello Cat...
Truffle hopes you are being VERY sincere....
...he takes his modelling extremely seriously. ;o)

14 Nov, 2009

 

Truffle.....you look divine. Britain's Next Top Model winner. :oD

14 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Gilli.
Truffle says he hopes that you, too, are genuine in your admiration for his winter fashion statement. ;o)

14 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Terra ...Jane here LOL...so THIS is the hat he offered !! Lol...it is fantastic ! Really made me smile ! BB had seen it and not told me !

14 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Jane...
Truffle thinks this is very much your colour...
All the best lads and lassies are wearing these this autumn...
By the way, for emergency rations, Truffle keeps spare Malt Crunchies under his hat... you won't mind storing some cereal under there when it's your turn to wear it ? ;o)

14 Nov, 2009

 

No problem there Terra ! Will even replace them when they run out !! x

14 Nov, 2009

 

Well done Truffle.; As my old dad used to say'If you want to get a-head, get a hat!'

14 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Paul...
This hat would look good on Paddy, too. :o)

14 Nov, 2009

 

I'm afraid he wouldn't be as patient a model as Truffle. He'd soon get that off, I think! He doesn't like wearing anything!

14 Nov, 2009

 

Have you seen the ad for Ugg boots on the right of this page ? Do you think they might have Truffles size lol ? Would be quite expensive as he needs four !!! :))

14 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Aster...good idea !
Four Uggs for Truffle...
Maybe he could get commission for modelling them..Lol. :o)

14 Nov, 2009

 

HI TT love truffles hat does his owner have a hat to match to keep her cosy:)

14 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Scotkat ~
Trouble is, both Truffle and Conker love this hat...
...and they have to share it...!
I hope you are well. xxx

14 Nov, 2009

 

Looking at all the comments that pooch could start up a fan club . just too cuteIwould like to give a big hug to your cute pet.

15 Nov, 2009

 

He's probably thinking : all the mutts at the park are never gunna let me forget this....

15 Nov, 2009

 

I should start knitting if I were you Terra, 1 more hat each for you and Conker and perhaps a scarf for Crocus.
You can't fit a hat on his little feathered head after all :-)
How would you keep a scarf on him - I haven't a clue !!!!!
Chris xx

15 Nov, 2009

 

Hello Pitta...
Thanks. I've passed your hug on to Truffle. Lol.
Hi Pip...
I bet Frances is VERY jealous of this hat... :o)
Chris ...
I don't think I have the energy to knit even the tiniest hat for Crocus the budgie right now....Lol.. xxx

15 Nov, 2009

 

OOOOOoh my Gosh, he looks GREAT!!!!!
lolol.... Alzheimer... I think Truffles has some scotish "heritage"... he just looks like a perfect sctosman!!!!
TT... you need to sew Truffle a kilt :o)))))

15 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Aleyna...
Truffle is willing to wear anything...
... he loves dressing up..:o)

15 Nov, 2009

mad
Mad
 

I couldn't help smiling, he looks so sweet and what a trend-setter. I suppose any fashion-wise dog would want to be seen in a hat like that this winter!
He looks so good and patient.

15 Nov, 2009

 

Hello Mad...
Truffle really does enjoy wearing anything....
In fact he is very impatient...Lol...
... wants to wear the hat as soon as he sees it....
Truffle is VERY serious about his modelling career....:o)

15 Nov, 2009

 

Yes Tt, I can see Littlewoods offering Conker a modelling contract for their catalogue. New section: Canine Head Aparell !

15 Nov, 2009

 

Truffle's modelling charges are VERY EXPENSIVE per hour...
...almost as pricey as your gardening rates, Paul. Lol. ;o)

15 Nov, 2009

 

Yes, but at least he can still earn throughout the winter unlike us poor gardeners!

15 Nov, 2009

 

Lol... I knew you'd have a good answer...:o)

15 Nov, 2009

 

Maybe you could patent these as ear-muffs for next year's Fireworks capers TT
....we are in the midst of the Big Bang Bonfire tonight.....eeeek! Happily I had left the DAP diffuser switched on and hopefully the next hour should see the worst past. Why bother I say after all this time..<<<(((

15 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Alz...
We had just a couple of fireworks exploding in the neighbourhood this evening.
...not sure if your Big Bang Bonfire is late for this year or early for next year...

.he he he ... I typed Big Bong Bonfire and had to alter it...Lol.

15 Nov, 2009

 

BING BANG BONG...they are all happening here because our original bonfire was under four feet of water two weekends ago and nobody felt like celebrating anything last weekend I suppose either! Now they seem to be making up for it.....is it my imagination or are fireworks LOUDER these days.....:<<<((((

15 Nov, 2009

 

Not your imagination. They now have big display fireworks in little gardens, so I suppose the displays have to use even bigger/louder ones!

15 Nov, 2009

 

Thank heaven they are not allowed bonfires in little gardens any more here - this is the Municipal one...and hopefully the last - until New Year that is!

15 Nov, 2009

 

Yes, nowadays the fireworks are much louder...
what a good thing Truffle has lots of Malt Crunchies stuffed under his hat to muffle the noise of explosions....:o)

15 Nov, 2009

 

Nice idea TT.....happily the party's over ....I think!!!

15 Nov, 2009

 

That's good because Truffle has eaten all the Malt Crunchies. :o)

15 Nov, 2009

 

EEK! How about Conker....any left for him?

15 Nov, 2009

 

Conker has his own secret stock of Malt Crunchies....
.... sssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhh :o)

15 Nov, 2009

 

Truffle, I envy you, I would like a hat just like yours. Did you knit it yourself? Alas, I don't know how to knit.

16 Nov, 2009

 

Yes, Alzheimer, our Paddy hopes there's no more till new year as well.
Malt Crunchies for insulation Tt??? You could be onto something there! I can see ity on the news now........... All schools and public buildings are to have malt crunchie insulation as a safer (although a bit soiggier when it rains) alternative to asbestos!!!!!!! Make sure you get a patent on it!!

16 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Paul...
Now I'm even more convinced I should ask for commission on sales of Co-op Malt Crunchies.... or at least receive quantity discount... :o)

16 Nov, 2009

 

What about your Divi ???!!!! No I'm not calling you a rude name, I mean your Co op Dividend card!

16 Nov, 2009

 

I do have a Co-op card....
I think those are supposed provide money vouchers in December....
so I'll be able to buy yet more Malt Crunchies. :o)

16 Nov, 2009

 

Malt crunchies to stuff the Turkey with!!! Now that would be different! Just about to put a Flowerpot person pic up for you. I've been searching for ages but couldn't find one until recently. A bit bigger than most!!

16 Nov, 2009

 

Oooh, I must check out the FPP....thanks :o)
Vegetarian here...
..so just Malt Crunchies for Christmas Lunch...
... no Turkey :o)

16 Nov, 2009

 

Yum Yum!!!

16 Nov, 2009

 

Don't know how I missed this Terra. What a poser !! Love it :~))

17 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Sue... Thank you...
Truffle is busy with his giant size chew bone....
... he'll get back to you later ;o)

17 Nov, 2009

 

Terra - Truffle is absolutely gorgeous! A man after my own heart in his hat! Don't think my jack's would sit still long enough for that.

17 Nov, 2009

 

Hello Hmhb...
Truffle says thanks :o)
No, I can't imagine your Jacks wearing hats for long. Lol.

17 Nov, 2009

 

I know its the second time I`ve commented on this photo Terra but I just had to look at it again. Truffle just has the most amazing expression on his face. :o))

Sandra xx

18 Nov, 2009

 

Lol. Sandra...
Truffle takes his fashion statements VERY seriously...:o)

18 Nov, 2009

 

TT Truffles new hat nearly finished :) will send you a photo first to see if its ok.

18 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks. Scotkat...
I'll keep a look-out on my email.
Truffle is VERY excited about a new hat.....Lol. xxx

18 Nov, 2009

 

Truffle is very talented at looking CUTE!!!!! :o`

19 Nov, 2009

 

Of course I was being sincere with my comment Truffle. How could you possibly think otherwise? ;o)

19 Nov, 2009

 

is this what they call a red sitter dog ha ha great photo

19 Nov, 2009

 

or another Sporting breed.....
......Red-and-White Sitter...:o) Lol.

19 Nov, 2009

 

I keep forgetting that 'Winter's coming ' is this pic of Truffle, so when I click on it, it's always a surprize. Instead of info on what we should be doing in our gardens or pics of de-nuded trees I see Truffle peering over the hebe trying to look dignified in his red hat. I fall about laughing each time, it's priceless! Thankyou Truffle:-)))))))

20 Nov, 2009

 

Lol.. Truffle's advice for your winter garden is to admire your hebe which is still flowering well, but wear your warmest hat and eat lots of Malt Crunchies.xxx

20 Nov, 2009

 

gosh Tt, I was just 'editing' my comment when yours popped up, another surprise:-)

20 Nov, 2009

amy
Amy
 

Aw TT .. LOL .. Twiggy dosn't stand a chance .. ..... just the thing for this horrible wet weather ........

20 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Amy ~
Truffle says he'll do a deal with M & S to star in their TV commercials...
provided he's paid by the hour with Malt Crunchies :o)

20 Nov, 2009

 

Ha! I share your sympathy Bornagain... gets me every time too :o)))

22 Nov, 2009

 

Oooooh - I've only just seen this photo (have been ko'd and out of action with the dready lurgy ....) and need to object to the fact that you haven't made a couple of holes for his ears - fancy squashing them like that - it's no wonder he has that irrestibile expression on his face!!!!! There again, I suppose they are nice and warm tho', all tucked up under the bobble ....

23 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Terry60 ~
Just how huge do you imagine are the size of Truffle's ears ? Lol.
He has lots of room under that woolly hat for his ears to be folded forward naturally and comfortably.... plus plenty of spare space for his secret store of Malt Crunchies. ;o) xxx

23 Nov, 2009

 

Ah - a secret hiding place for his Malt Crunchies - NOW I see why he has that chuffed expression !!!!

23 Nov, 2009

 

Only Truffle and Giorgio know where to find the Malt Crunchies....ssshhhhhh :o)

23 Nov, 2009

 

Hi TT Conkers new hat in post you should get it tomorow.

25 Nov, 2009

 

Oh this is so brilliant.....bless

26 Nov, 2009

 

Hi Scotkat...
Thank you...Conker is looking out for the postman.

Thanks DD2 ...
Cold winds this week... we all need our hats.
Lol. :o)

26 Nov, 2009

 

OMG so sweet!!! : D

27 Nov, 2009

 

Thanks, Charlie...
Scotkat's hat for Conker arrived yesterday... very exciting !
On Conker's latest blog, there's a pic of him wearing the cute hat ....blue and yellow...:o)

27 Nov, 2009

 

Another cutie...love the hat too xxx

2 Dec, 2009

 

Truffle says : thanks, Panther. xxx

2 Dec, 2009

 

Just what I expected to see upon my arrival , more doggie staging , brilliant . love it , hello all

17 Dec, 2009

 

Hi Smalljaw... we've missed you. :o)

17 Dec, 2009

 

Giggle!!

18 May, 2011

 

Hi Kimberly....

19 May, 2011
