Hi everybloggie. Take a looksee. I think it's nearly sprung. Spring. In my neck of the woods. Is it in yours yet? No worries. Soon will be.Well except for my pals who are in summer. Crickey. How's that work? Well anyway. This week I decided does this bloggie a whole lot of good to take my walkies a little bit slower. Laid back. Instead of being wired.

Appreciate what's on my block. Waiting to be discovered.
Tree's about to burst into blossom.

Daffy's dillying.

Eric. Dilly Dallying!!!!

Took time to sniff the flowers. Watch winter leaving. Spring arriving.

Never realised.I've got green paws!!! Cos look what's happened. Been watering this spot all year. One day it's a blanket of snow, few days later it's a whole bloomin' carpet of flowers!!!

Grew this bunch of crocuses specially for all you girlie's...

and see these pretty woodland violets peeping their shy little heads up? Green pawed them for my Toffee sweetie. Course. The other sure sign of Spring. Is in the air. Been sniffing it out all over. Lurrrrrrve. Me and Toffee. Petey and his Rosie Posy. Cute Myrna and Gilbert.

Strewth!!!!!! Noooooooo. My Miss Enid Wheelie on Wheels!! My Wally Wednesday!! Would you blogging believe it? What've those pesky old wheelies of mine been up to??? Right. I'm off. Need to nip their lurrrrrved up feeling right in the bud...hehehee!!!!!!


Toffee said...

Oh Eric!
I love those flowers they are so boootiful!

You are so generous to have fertilized them specially!!

What a generous wire boy to have been so gentlemanly and thoughtful to have pawed up some flowers for all the girls to feel special too!!

Mom is definitely jelly that you have your flowers! She loves the springtime flowers!

Lovely flowers Eric. Hope you get the wheelies turned around


Deetz said...

It is almost Spring here too...but we don't have any pretty flowers like your yard yet. The horses are feeling Springy and my mum has a spring in her step she says

Sparky said...


Spring hasn't sprung here nearly as much as it has where you are... But I think it will soon... I found just a couple flowers the other day but I ate them. They taste much better than they smell!

Those are all wonderful pictures, everything looks so colorful!

I hope you have a grrrrEAT weekend, man!


Jake of Florida said...

See, folks were teasing us about Mom's flowers -- but we think flowers are a good thing and yours are particularly beautiful -- new borns!!!

Here in South Florida, spring comes on kind of subtle-like, because winter is never very harsh. But it's in the air -- just springing to be sprung - SPROING!!!! SPROING!!!!Here it comes!!

First, I really need to know how a WFT gets unwired!!! LOL, you are quite funny.

Speaking of funny, your post today is MOST clever. Beautiful pics and thoughtful & entertaining captions. Yes, you certainly have a green paw. I hope all my watering (MS. Alpha calls it my D-Mail) springs some lovely posies forth from the earth. I know I can kill grass but I'm hoping I can grow flowers like you.

Ms. Alpha is intrigued with the dog dancing and also does a little waltzing and fox trotting with me for fun. I like to weave through her legs and go backwards. I don't want to take it much further and learn to hop like a bunny on my hind legs! We also have a dog trick book that's kept us both sane during this interminable winter. But I still refuse to roll over!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Eric!
Hurray! Spring is almost here!
Well, I have to say we really did not have a winter weather here!
The flowers you have there are beautiful!
Have a great weekend
Kisses and hugs

Petey said...

Eric, can you check with the Royal Mail and see if they're behind on deliveries again? Seems you've already got oodles of Spring and we haven't seen as much as a petal. Some tiny little green pencils sticking out of the dirt but that's it. Maybe our flower beds are too soft and they're all still sleeping?

Start gargling your barkbox daily so you can hit those tenor notes! "Come to me, bay for me..."

Your pal,


P.S. I've quite gotten the hang of the blue birdhouse wobbly feeder! Mommy now gives me my dinner in it each night and I'm getting faster and faster at getting it out. And I have biceps like Madonna's!!!

Dughallmor Beagles said...

Wooo, Petey! Can't wait to cop a feel of those biceps *blush*
Love your Spring flowers Eric, we have some too but not as many as you guys down in old London Town, jeez it's practically in the tropics! (Mum comes from Buckinghamshire originally!)
See you and your Toffee girl at Joey Palooza, if we ever manage to wake Mother up's 4.22am and we're beginning to think she has fallen out WITH her bed!
Slobbers xx

Sally said...

Well done Eric - those flowers are lovely - but the treats I buried haven't sprouted yet?

But I am glad the snow is gone - it played havoc with my hairdo

Lots of licks

Noah the Airedale said...

Mate, great minds think alike. Our next post is on Autumn arriving in the mountains hehehe.
Don't you just love a change of seasons??


Eric and Flynn said...

Those flowers are lovely Eric. We are glad spring is arriving, it means more walks in our fields.
We have given you the Kreativ Blogger award. Come and collect it from our blog.

Mango said...

Oh boy! It's going to be spring here soon too. I can't wait.


tula said...

Bow wow for Grass!
Woof woof for flowers!
Just Beautiful.. you sure have some green paws, eric.

No flowers around here yet. At least the snow will melt this weekend :O


the 4 Bs said...

hi Eric, you have some nice springtime flowers there. we like to sniff all of the smells after the snow has melted. do you have some good sniffs?



Eric my square daffy dilly friend,

Who knew romance spewed thru those veins. LUUURRRVER boy. You know what else multiples besides rabbits and flowers this time of year... Luurrver boy WFT. Be careful while dilling your dally.

Oh.. you were right. Mr. bizerko has appeared during the walks. I think i caught it .. I went to the vet and she said.. I have Spring Fevah. There's no cure. My mom says it's a chronic case....


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Flowers?? You have flowers?? We have dirt, mud, mulch and very dead grass. No flowers.

Man, Eric...Lac has been SUCH A well this is a family She growls if Stan or me get within 20 feet of she goes around all the time.

She's refusin' to eat AT's FAB...we get all her rejects. But Mumsie's not worried cuz she's drinkin' (water for a change) and is still runnin' around..growling.

So what did you and Petey do to her??? Hehhehhehhehhehehehehehehe...

Wait..I hear the queen ringing her bell...What Lacie??? What? You want ice cream? No can do...

The silence is shattered with ear splittin' shrieks...

Scruff can't sign off...his paws are over his ears......

Maggie and Mitch said...

Your spring is ahead of ours, Eric! Our Witch Hazels are blooming and mom saw a Snowdrop or two but that's it so far! Your flowers are just lovely!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Joe Stains said...

Martha Basset said...

Hi Eric
We know how hard it is to get the right staff! Our mum isn't all there either!
We hope you are feeling better. If not just give us a shout and we will send Bailey right over!
Martha is nearly back to her old self but I dont think she will ever go to the vet again!!

Marvin The Poet said...

A poem for you, just for you, dear Eric!

"A square dog came calling on my blog one day.........
he was square, he was funny, he was cool, in a way,

His name it was Eric, and he was just so cool,
I liked his square Dogness, he bent all the "round" rules.

I have taken him now to my Marvin heart,

just'cos he was funny and he made me laugh!

He is perfectly square, and my new bestest friend,

I think I'll like Square Eric until world comes to the end."

it is not good, it is not clever, but like glue, sadly, my bad poetry kinda sticks around forever!

lotsalicks Eric xxxxxxxxxx

William Tell said...

Yes, Eric, you certainly have a green paw to raise such pretty flowers for your sweetie. Now me, I just end up with brown grass. Must be doing it wrong or something...

Happy Tails,
William Tell


Knaw wood! Quite clever my square friend. My mom was lol.. i even bol. I think you have a lil benny hill in you.


Agatha and Archie said...

Ahhhh my little square friend twinny,all we can say as we look out at this cold dark raingy ickky day a+a(we are so tired of winter we can't even capitilize our A's)

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

You are the romantic poet of this Spring season,
May I add:
All the sweet lovers
"Took time to sniff the flowers. Watch winter leaving.
Spring arriving."
paws in paws
sniffing "water" outdoors!
Oh my gosh, I'm a romantic poet too!
PS: Great water work, Eric man!
