"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

Animal Wednesday

It's Lo's Emma - (aka the *fierce*  Squirrel Huntress)!  Here she is, on *Squirrel Alert*....looking for the infamous Squirrel,  Short-t!  (Whom I did actually *meet*!)

Here is Bliss - (aka *The Princess*), demanding a neck massage!  I just fell in love with this beautiful furball!

Here is Koa, the *Star* of SF Opera's *Heart of a Soldier*.  Koa's *owner* lives quite near me and we run into other from time-to-time!  Koa is the sweetiest *Goldie*.....on or off the Opera Stage!

I had to include a picture of my beloved Bofie......although it has now been over a year since I last hugged and kissed his face, he is still my doggie.....

I love him and miss him.

Here we are in upstate NY amid the Autumn leaves - three years ago.....

HAW to all!


♥ Robin ♥


  1. Love the photos Robin! And that Emma, she is the Big Bwana of the Squirrel Hunters! (lol! so much oomph!)
    When I opened your blog, I have separate tabs, and it opened in a VIOLET tab! How cool is that!

    XXOO from rainy Indiana~~

  2. so cute, owen would sure love to play with them all, esp hunting squirrels with emma. :)

  3. Wow you know a dog that is an actor. How cool is that. All of these furry people are precious. HAW and Big Hugs.

  6. Great photos of all these pets. Annie & Daisy send their Hugs & love to you for missing your dear Bofie. What a great photo of you with him. Thanks for your care and comments about Annie and her leg surgery and updates. :))

  7. what a nice picture of YOU, robin!

    i agree with suki: i'm sure bofie misses you too. that part of breakups is just not fair :^(

    emma and bliss look like they quite enjoyed your company


  8. I thought of you when the Wolfhounds entered the stage on Saturday in "Anna" - wow and were they ever good and well behaved.

    lovely pictures of the king and queen of animals - aren't they gorgeous? But your Bofie is the most gorgeous of them all.

  9. Oh, my girls!! Blissie had her senior check-up yesterday and the vet said she never looked better! I did tell him about your bite and he said because she wasn't up to date on her rabies shot, they would have taken her away from me if you had been seen for your bite. Bliss has always been too ill for her recent vaccines, so yesterday we updated her. I'm so glad your arm healed quickly!

    That golden is beautiful! And Bofie, sigh.. I would have the hardest time with that part of a breakup very well. I know you miss him so much. I'm sure he misses you too.

    I hope you had a lovely evening last night! We'll catch up later.


  10. What a nice AW post!!!!
    to see my beloved Emma and Bliss:)
    Good shot of you and Bofie although your face seems different here, but I have my thoughts on that......
    How cool you meet that famous lab every now and then ;)

    HAW late..............

  11. The last bit made me sad - I miss my dog Jack, too.
