An Award and a Great Afternoon!

I am settling into holiday mode only to have to go back to work tomorrow! These last four days I've been able to spend a lot of time with Jazz and Dixie and most of the time has been spent outdoors enjoying the gorgeous weather. I've also had time to post on our blog and to visit friends' blogs. It has been great catching up on what everyone is doing. This afternoon Jazz, Dixie and I went for a marathon walk. First we walked over to Setagaya park where we have met our friend, Fei a few times before. Then it was on to Dog Garden Cafe for a coffee and hotcakes with maple syrup for me and banana bread for Jazz and Dixie, which by the way they loved! Then we walked along a cherry tree , lined walking path in a big circle ending up back home, the whole walk and rest stop taking about 3 hours! Needless to say Jazz and Dixie are now fast asleep on the sofa.
Over the weekend we were also awarded the Community Blogger Award by our good friend, River. Thanks to River for passing on this award to us and thanks to everyone who visits our blog, making our dog blogging community a fun and enjoyable one. We would like to pass it on to Girl Girl, Hammer and Harry&Cassidy.

Don't know which is the most beautiful - the photos of the trees or the ones of the dogs!

Yummy looking pancakes! Mmmm. Banana bread sounds good, too. We've never had any. Maybe Momma would let us try some over the holidays. I think we usually have some around then.
