Ping's 10th Birthday

We were so excited when after a rainy Saturday and an a gloomy looking Sunday morning the sun came out for Ping's birthday party day.

 Ping got this adorable dress from Pugpossesed.  I think its her best outfit yet.

She also got a Linden Line designs Victorian bell collar 

 and this cooling mat, thanks to Dip Dip and the Bridge who wrote about theirs.

 We went on a bike ride in the park
watched TV

 and had a tea party with treats for dogs and people

 In other news I started a second blog, The Old Fashioned Way, its going to be about retro things, mainly vintage style clothing and old movies.   Its very much a work in progress and I don't really expect anyone to read it or to put to much content on it, but if you are interested in that kind of stuff you might want to check it out.  This will continue be my primary blog but I think it will be fun to write a little more about vintage.

  13. PS Park Day can be done in as many trips as it rules there, we just want everyone to have fun in the parks

  14. Ping, Happy Birthday. I am sure you had a wonderful time, although I must say that,when I saw that you were made to wear a frock and go for a bike ride, well, that would be my worse nightmare of a day! But I must say, you look very happy. As Gail says, horses for courses etc. And one can't argue with the treats for dogs and people bit.
    Toodle pip!
