Ah yes, I've been called the same :)

Lol. :o)))

21 Nov, 2011

 

It's nice to see photos of Truffle as a puppy. They're lovely. Wasn't he cute :o) And has grown into a handsom dog now.
Catfinch was kind to send you that sign.
I like the writing on your blog. It's easy to see and read.

21 Nov, 2011

 

Hello Hywel ..
Thank you. Yes Truffle was very cute...Lol.

I tried the large writing as an experiment, but Helen says in an earlier comment that she can't see the photos. I'm relieved that other members can see it all...

So very kind of Catfinch ... she took such care to make sure the fragile ceramic sign wasn't damaged :o)))

21 Nov, 2011

 

Briliant sign there TT. you just need to find one about Conker now! Wasnt Truffle a cutie pie and still is of course. x

21 Nov, 2011

 

Aw thats soooo cute..Truffles is great and Conker too :))

21 Nov, 2011

 

A wonderful blog, loved the photos, such happy memories.And how about that sign? such a kind thought.

22 Nov, 2011

 

that's wonderful Terra and a very kind person she is to, love the sign :-))

22 Nov, 2011

 

Thanks Grandmage, Pixi, Dotty, Surreylad ...
Yes, Truffle was a cute pup, and Catfinch was very kind indeed to bring the sign to the UK for me :o)

22 Nov, 2011

 

Sorry Terra my comments wouldn`t go through again last night.
I can remember you fetching Truffle, you sent me a pm enquiring on road conditions around our area, we had a lot of snow and you`d got to travel that day, you never said why but introduced Truffle a few days later so all became clear.
His puppy pics are lovely, its great to look back through them but gosh look at him now, he`s gone from a fluffy bundle to a very handsome lad and I`m sure he tries his hardest to be as good as Conker, lol..
Thats a lovely sign from Catfinch, I always think gifts like that are very special, very thoughtful of Cat and I bet you were made up when receiving it, Conker looks as though he thinks its good as well, I swear he looks as though he is smiling...
Love the blog Terra and the way you have done it, very clever and of course its going in my favs...

22 Nov, 2011

 

Lovely blog, beautiful pictures and what cute dogs.

22 Nov, 2011

 

Hi Lincslass...
I'm pleased GoY is now letting you comment.

Coincidence ~ when I was finding photos for this blog, it took me back to that wintry day early in 2009 when I sent you a message asking if there was a lot of snow in your area ...
Despite the snow, Truffle travelled home in luxury, curled up in a cosy little "igloo-type" soft bed, oblivious of the freezing conditions outside..

Yes .. bringing the sign to the UK was so thoughtful of Catfinch ...
... and, as we know, soon after getting Truffle, Conker had to cope with months and months of cancer treatment, so it is wonderful to see him happy and smiling in 2011!

Thanks for putting on your favs...

Hello Mossy ...
I'm glad you like this blog ... Some of the puppy pics I hadn't seen for quite a while, so it was fun looking at them again... :o)

22 Nov, 2011

 

managed to see them today TT. They were worth the wait :o))
whatever happened yesterday has righted itself now!!!!
[gremlins ??? ]

A perfect sign for a perfect Truffle TT ... puppy pics are so cute, truffle looks adorable :o))

22 Nov, 2011

 

Hi Helen...
I'm so relieved you can see the photos...
I wondered if there were going to be problems there ..
Glad the pics are worth the wait :o)

Thanks Amy ..
Yes, it is lovely looking back at puppy pics :o))) x

22 Nov, 2011

 

Oh Terra what a gorgeous puppy Truffle was, bought tears to my eyes looking at all his pictures. It was very kind of Catfinch bringing you that sign, I always enjoy seeing pictures of the handose Truffle and te beautiful Conkeer, you have two real treasures there Terra;0)

22 Nov, 2011

 

Hi Pansypotter ...

... thanks for visiting Truffle's blog :o)
I had forgotten about a whole batch of the puppy pictures ... because back in early 2009, the photos were filed away when I was dealing with Conker's long illness....

So, this week, it was quite a surprise when I went back through my computer files and found so many lovely photos of baby Truffle ...

I realise I'm very lucky to have my pets ... your paintings brought back memories of your photos of Polly.. so I went back to your GoY pics and had another look ... my favourite photo of her is that one where she had snow stuck all over her face.. this one ~ ...http://www.growsonyou.com/photo/slideshow/61481-we-ve-still-got-lots-of-the-white-stuff/member/PANSYPOTTER

Lol... :o) xxx

22 Nov, 2011

 

Thanks Terra for taking another look at my lovely Polly, I like that one with the snow on her face too [she loved the snow!] I have her pictures all over thye house and have enjoyed featuring her in my paintings ;0)))

22 Nov, 2011

 

Yes, on your GoY photos, not far from Polly's "snow-face" pic, there is a photo of the lovely painting you did of Polly sitting.

As with you, I have lots of photos of past dogs around my house ... Bonsai the Welsh Terrier and others :o)

22 Nov, 2011

 

Oh yes Terra it all comes back, it was a horrible year for us as well, I always think of Malik when I am seeing Conker especially if the illness is mentioned, still reduces me to tears even when cuddling Brynner...

22 Nov, 2011

 

Yes, it was a difficult time ... I still have to stop when commenting on your pics, and make sure I don't write Malik by mistake... in fact, I did use the wrong name one time, but you were very understanding about it... and, likewise, I miss Bonsai the Welsh Terrier very much ...
..3 years on ...so I very much understand your feelings about lovely Malik ... xxx

22 Nov, 2011

 

Brynner is a lot like him in many ways but completely different in others, he is very stubborn, a trait Malik never had not even when a youngster which makes for some very funny moments, especially when trying to train him, lol, as to the name both hubby and I often call him Malik by mistake, we have pics now that if we don`t look at the collar then even we cannot tell the difference...

22 Nov, 2011

 

Yes .... I can imagine the photos of Malik and Brynner looking very similar ... :o)

22 Nov, 2011

 

what with a tiny truffle ( Cat is so very thoughtful with that sign) Leighs chipolatas and Lulus sluggy Goys Gorgeous tonight.....x

22 Nov, 2011

 

Hi Pamg ..
I'm so lucky to have the sign from Catfinch :o)

22 Nov, 2011

 

Ah, what a lovely puppy Truffles was ... and well done to you Tt, for raising him into such a handsome dog ... I saw a cake shop called Truffles in Hove today ... sign was too large to remove though ... :o)

22 Nov, 2011

 

Hello Shirley ... Thanks ..
Yes, Truffle was a pretty puppy ... a pity the cake shop sign was too big for you to take away ... Lol... :o)

22 Nov, 2011

 

Love this post LOL - thanks for the smiles =))

22 Nov, 2011

 

Hi Cate ... glad the blog made you smile :o)

23 Nov, 2011

 

Hi Frybo .. Thanks ...
I'm pleased you enjoyed the story ..
and, yes, Catfinch is a kind lady :o)))

23 Nov, 2011

 

I've just 'aah'ed over Lulu's pups and now I'm 'aahing' over Truffle. Lovely to see the photos and see how he developed into such a handsome lad :)

23 Nov, 2011

 

Hi Gee.
Pleased you like my photos :o)

23 Nov, 2011

 

Your photos of baby Truffle are so cute, he could turn a dedicated kitty owner's head! So, Conker's all smiles, and Truffle is posing prettily...it must be another lovely blog from TT! ;0) Brilliant!

23 Nov, 2011

 

Ahhh great blog TT.. lovely to see truffles Pics as a baby.:))

24 Nov, 2011

 

Thanks Libet and Holly ...
I'm obviously biased .. but

:))))))

24 Nov, 2011

 

As you can see I am just catching up again. Brilliant TT, lovely to see Truffle's life story, what a cute puppy he was. Love the label, just right.

25 Nov, 2011

 

Hi Bob.. Thanks.
Catfinch found exactly the right sign, didn't she...
I'm pleased you like the story of baby Truffle.

25 Nov, 2011

 

Yes Lovely, Sylvia loved it too and insisted I put it onto my favourites which I was delighted to do. Looking at those photos of Truffle as a puppy has made her wishful for one of her own.

25 Nov, 2011

 

Hi Bob ...
Thanks for putting on favourites ..
I think a Sheltie would be ideal for Sylvia ..
Terriers are a bit too lively at times !

25 Nov, 2011

 

Brill story About Truffles, have to admit he is his mums double, lovely to see the differant stages of him growing up, and also lovely to see Catfinch x

26 Nov, 2011

 

Aaaaaah! What a lovely puppy and a lovely Catfinch too! :))

27 Nov, 2011

 

Hello Clarice and Karen ...
Thanks. Yes, Truffle takes after his mother in lots of ways ... and not only in looks .. I saw her leap up very high a few times in her kitchen ... and Truffle is also good at the high jump in his kitchen .. Lol.

.. and lovely pic of smiling Catfinch ... :o) x

27 Nov, 2011

 

Aw!!!!!....such a lovely story....told in your inimitable fashion TT.....Thank youxxx :-)

27 Nov, 2011

29 Nov, 2011
