Weekend Salute: A Royal Visit!

Ha roo, pups and kit-cats! It's me - Stormy! As Amber told you yesterday, we were visited by royalty! We've got lots of pictures to share, so we're going to spend today and tomorrow sharing them with you!

Check this out!

That's right, we're saluting Eva and Brice! Yesterday, our very sweet friend Eva, her new brother Brice and their bipeds came to see us! It was SO exciting!

Zim went out to meet them first. He thought they were both really nice!

Left to right, Eva, Zim, and Brice

Zim said Eva was incredibly sweet. She's been through a LOT lately and there was just tons of excitement at the breeder's where they picked up Brice, so she wanted to hang back a little. We can all understand that!

Zim and Brice played a little bit and did lots of sniffies.

Hey, Brice! How ya doing?!?
Hi Zim! Nice to meet you!

The boys did great together. Mom wasn't sure if the rest of us would get to meet Eva and Brice; we didn't want to over-whelm anyone and Mom wasn't sure how we'd respond. Zim decided he should fill Brice in on all of us! Even though Eva's read all about us, Zim didn't think she'd had time to let Brice know about the Ao4!

So, yeah. I'm Zim. I've got a big brother named Dave and two sisters - Stormy and Amber.

Brice seemed to take it all in... then he whispered in Zim's ear:

Can I meet the rest of the Ao4? Hey! Did you mention sisters?

Ha roo roo roo! Mom decided things had gone so well with Zim that Amber could come out!

Ever-respectful, Ammy said "ha roo" to Eva first.

Am and Eva

Then she saw ... Brice. The ever-so-handsome Brice! She pinned her big 'ol ears back and got that coy look on her face ...

Ooooh, hi, Brice!

They moved over to the grass, where Ammy proceeded to roll over for him, letting him know pretty much literally that she had fallen head over paws for him.

To say they hit it off would be a vast understatement. Here's their first kiss:

And their second:

(It looks like Brice is smiling in that one, doesn't it?) Here's Ams going in for a third:

Ha roo roo roo! She really liked him! And he liked her, too! He smacked her in the head with one of his paws - and she just loved that! She likes to do that a lot in play, too, so there's something they have in common right away!

Here's one more picture of Ammy and handsome Brice.

He had either just given her a love smack or was about to - see that left front paw? Get her, Brice! Ha roo!

Dave and I got to meet our very special guests, too! I'll share those pictures with you tomorrow! What a special, special afternoon! We and our mom and dad just loved meeting everyone - quadruped and biped alike! Eva and Brice were going to see Holly after they left our place, then hit Summi's place today! We can't wait to hear all about their visits and to see pictures! Safe travels, friends!

Tune in tomorrow to see how it went for Dave and me with Princess Eva and Brice the Handsome. Until then -

Tail wags!

  10. It sounds like love at first sight!! How romantic. Ams really did look smitten.

  11. Hi Guys,
    Its been another case of mum being too busy with school to help us with blogging but now that she's on holiday she has no excuse well except when she goes to Australia next week for two weeks! We went back and read your post about Hank and Slick - they are adorable! Zim did a great job of making them feel welcome as he did with Eva and Brice. Is welcoming guests part of Zimmie's job in the AO4? Its a pity that you guys are so far away as we'd love to visit. You guys are so lucky that you get visitors. We have only ever had one other doggy visitor in our apartment as we usually go to visit other doggies at their places. We look forward to reading the other part of this visit.

  12. It's so cool that you got to meet Eva and Brice. I bet you felt just like you already knew them! At least Eva anyway!


  13. I'm so jealous that Eva and Brice got to meet my friend Zimmie before me. It looks like you had the BEST time.

    I will be waiting for the next part!
    Kisses and hugs

  15. Wow, you all had such a good time!!! They are such a sweet pain of pups aren't they?!!!!!


  16. Whew - I just had to drag Shyla away from the computer! Apparently she's swooning over Brice too! What-evvvver. Geesh. Eva though, my dogness. She's easy on a guy's eyes....I'm just sayin'!

  17. Omdog Brice is SO handsome and Eva really is a princess. You guys are so lucky to have met them both. I wonder if Amber and Brice might get engaged??
