True Colours Thursday

Today's color is VIOLET. We were a little surprised to find that we don't have much VIOLET
in our home. It is a color that we all like a lot so we better go shopping to find some more of it.

First we have a bag of one of our favorite treats - Mom uses them a lot for training purposes.

Then we found a few of the bipeds stuffies - a trio of Barneys.

And a pair of My Little Ponies and a brush for their manes - these actually belong to Mom's daughters and are from the early 1980s. But the two little girl grandbipeds love to play with them now.

And here's a fluffy little kitty that Mom found in the stuffy basket in one of the bedrooms upstairs - that's why we have never seen it before.

Here are the blooms from one of Mom's African VIOLETS.

And then we found this pretty pair of candlesticks with a spray of pretty little VIOLET flowers on them.

Here is a closeup shot of the flowers.

And lastly, Mom's birthstone is amethyst - here is one of her necklaces and a pair of earrings, both with her beautiful VIOLET stone in them.

Since we didn't really have much of our own VIOLET to share, we pawed a few of our good furiends to see if we could use them as models of some more VIOLET. So let's begin our showcase of beauties.

VIOLET is a favorite color of both Khyra and her Mom. Here is our beloved MFT . . .

^^ Check out the beautiful collar on our favorite Lady Khyra.

^^Too bad we can't see who is on the other end of this snazzy leash on Miss Fluffy Tail Khyra - word has it that the MOM also sports a lot of VIOLET.

And next we have a couple of members of the AO4 who want to share their love of VIOLET too.

^^Lovely Miss Amber on a royal "throne" of Mom's VIOLET fabrics.

^^And here's evfurrybody's pal DAVE all decked out in his VIOLET bandanna. Don't you just want to kiss those freckles?

And look who is next? Steve and Kat from the Washington Woos. Can woo just hear the pitter patter of Khyra's and Thunder's hearts as they each pine for the loves of their lives?

^^Matching VIOLET bandannas and. . .

^^ Matching head poses (lessons from the AO4).

And now here is our Honorary Husky - presenting Miss Huffle who loves to be surrounded by all things VIOLET!!!

^^Doesn't she look beautiful up against this VIOLET blanket?

But wait, check this out:

^^Now who wouldn't love to sleep in this luxurious VIOLET bed accompanied by such a cute little mouse?

And last, but definitely not least, Sitka and Cornelia Marie want to show woo how much they enjoy the color of the day too.

^^Sitka wears a big smile along with her beautiful bandanna.

^^How about a little snoofing of the VIOLET wubba?

^^Ahhhh, a great game of VIOLET wubba tug between the big and lil sisters!

It was so much fun to share our furiends' love of VIOLET as well as our own with all of woo. If woo want to do Blue's meme too, just visit Blue's blogspot. Next week's color is GREEN - of course, it IS the week for St. Patrick's Day.

Woos, the OP Pack

Hey OP Pack-

You and your friends did a GREAT job with VIOLET!!! I had a hard time finding VIOLET too.

The Army of Four said...

Woooo! Anyone wishing to take up the OP Pack's suggestion of kissing my freckles, please report to Ao4 HQs!! Woooo!
That was a lot of nice violet. I especially like those candlesticks - they're very bee-woo-tiful! ...and I'd like to jump in and play tuggy-tug with Sitka, CM and that Wubba, too!
Great job, friends!

Suzuki said...

So many Barneys...
Big licks to you

GSD Adventures said...

We just posted a pretty pic of flower that fits in with your theme and didn't even know what your color would be today! COOL!

Joey said...

I loved seeing the violet on so many nice friends - what a great idea. But the pooch treats at the top were my favorite - they look totally yummy!

See ya!

Ludo van puppy said...

Jan's Funny Farm said...

That's a lot of violet. Very interesting post.

pughy said...

How clever to include friends in the colour and what lovely pictures of them you did include. I love your blog today.

I think my favourite was the tug of war, How sweet,

Hugs Ginger Jasper xx

Mochi and Mommy said...

That was a great violet post! Those Barneys look tasty!!! My mom said she used to play with My Little Pony, but she doesn't know where they are. Great job!


Cyber-sibes said...

Violet is one of our mom's favs! Like Ouuuu, lots of pretty violets!!! Like Khyra & Kat, Star (that's me) also wears a violet collar with matching leash. My favorite of your violets is kissable Dave.... I think I'll head on over & plant a few snooter kisses on him. I can tell you right now that Jack's favorites would be the Barneys...and he'd soon discover what color they are on the inside!

Woos & a-roos,
Star & Jack a-roo

Petey said...

By far you did the best job with the VIOLET Challenge this week. Thanks for visiting my bloggie. I hope you'll come back again soon to see how Beagadoon turns out!

Your pal,


The Thundering Herd said...

Very colorful and creative post by using so many DWB friends.

us four gatos said...

this is our first visit here. what beautiful woofies you have!! indeed! we have a pug , does she qualify as a dog?
we likes your kitty pictures. there are four of us at our blog.

Carolina said...

You DID find a lot of violet things. WOW! Well done. Lovely post ;-)

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Are you sure you mean you're all in agreement with #2,4 & 5? #5 is scratching the furniture. We didn't know dogs do that. Our dogs prefer sleeping on it to scratching it. But, hey, every dog (and kitty) to his own. We like you anyway. It's Jan who has the problem with the furniture scratching.

Martha Basset said...

We just popped by to say Hello - we seem to have quite a few mutual friends!
We have visited quite a few blogs doing violet today and they have all agreed it is a hard colour! I guess that should be color - this could be a "I say tomato and your tomaeto moment!"
Anyway you did well - our favourites were the stuffies and the My little ponies. That is probably cos we are girls.
Stop by and say hello some time.
Nice to meet you.
Basset best wishes
Martha & Bailey xx

Sitka, Tia, & Cornelia Marie said...

We 100% love your post today and not just cuz we were in it (which we are honored to have been)> Woo three are very creative! Nice job!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

No problem. We have an occasional slip of the paw too, even though Percy does most of our typing and his paws aren't as big as mine or Sam's.


Gus, Louie and Callie said...
