Life is like opening a box with pretty
PINK ribbon.

You never know what's inside...

Please come in, everyone is welcome here at the Pink Cottage.
Funny ones,
Sweet ones,
Big ones,
some WITH diabetes, 
or just plain cute ones.
Some THAT are gone : (
SOME old 
some OLDER (16 yrs. old),
some YOUNG,
some very cool ones, 
and some very smart ones.
Some that like to decorate, 
and some that like to be decorated
Some that are VERY nosy ,
and some that JUST want to rest.

Crowns are optional,

silence is not.

Thank you Miss B*E*V*E*R*L*Y for hosting 

I'm honoured to be part of your

Awwww! There they are - one by one, two by two, just like Noah's Ark in Plantagenet! I've been thinking about you - everyday. I'm so bad about calling. I do love you though! So many wonderful memories made around that table and in that sweet little pink cottage by the river.

We have men here redoing our laundry room...will they ever be done?! I want my home back!! ...and I can't go anywhere when they are here.

Love you TTMAB always! Hope I'll be welcomed back into your pink cottage one sweet day!

You are a beauty, inside and out. I use to volunteer at our local rescue. We did adopt a wee little old lady chihuahua. We had to keep her, as she had our hearts, and we had hers. Thank you for loving these fur babies.

What an inspiring and beautiful post. I have been a rescuer for decades, and you know what? They are the ones who rescue me.
I am so glad that Beverly featured you this week, as I do not get to play along every week. It was meant to be.

Jil~Say It With Roses said...

Such a sweet blog! Love all your furry babies and what a loving heart you have!
I would love to come and have a bit of tea at that darling table!

Marie Arden said...

Bonjour I feel like I found my twin in pinkness. I bring pink toilet paper home from France! I guess you can but it in Canada too. I love animals and live a very pink live also. You must be my long lost sister in pink.
Check out my blog I adore Paris, pink, pastries, pets and other passions. Happy Holidays

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

From one Canadian blogger to another, Happy Pink Saturday, my friend! What cutie-pie pooches and kitties you have shared with us. I've enjoyed my visit and leaving with a smile. Enjoy your weekend, Claudie.


Claudia@DipityRoad said...

Ahhhh look at all those lovies!!! I love especially the decorate and smart one... LOL made me laugh.

I would love to come stop by just to be licked by all those cute critters.

love you@!

jeanne said...

Claudie, you should never stop blogging. You are the best and most fun blogger. I know and love those darling fur babies. Even Bella who left racing stripes on my clothes. HA!
I think you must follow those cuties all day long capturing these fabulous photos. Starting at noon of course!!!

Your tree is so sweet and done up the Claudie way. PINK and pearls. Love at first sight.

Did you know Sister Lolotte sent me an email. I was thrilled and stunned.I will forward it to you. She is amazing and I love her very much. I agree, she better live a long time. Well, she has already lived a looonnnnnng time but we want much longer. OR ELSE!!!

Your feature on Beverly's post is daring, just like you. You did a good job and I know she was pleased. Beverly is very sick with a terrible, not able to talk, cold. Poor thing.

We are packing the car for in the morning. We will be careful and I will have my computer with me. I will send you a blow by blow. HA!

I love you to pieces.

Hi Claudie... I'm dropping by to introduce myself from Beverly's Pink Saturday! When I saw the photo of you uncovering the toliet tissue... well... after laughing out loud I knew I'd have to visit!

I love your pet photos... just adorable! and your little pink cottage dining area... so sweet...

I too am married to a wonderful man, who loves and adores me and knows I love my pink... but I think he'd pass out if I started decorating pink... he's got to maintain his strong silent type Texas man image ya know! (oh a girl can dream though...)

I look forward to visiting your blog often so I'm making myself your newest follower!

What a stunning blog! I was browsing before I could read the post. And, it was a great post. I love the snippets at the end. Oh you have some precious 7! I enjoyed being able to read the French, only had to guess at one or two words (just one year French student many years ago!). Je parle Francais tres unpeu. Did I say and spell it correctly? I rehearsed my first dialogue so much that I can actually be mistaken for French. But that's all there is. Oh, my maiden name has a French background I hear. Oh well, anyway . . . absolutely great write on Beverly's Pink Saturday feature and this post. Loved it! Enjoyed it! Thanks a bunch! Hugs to ya! (Texas). Jenn

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

I don't know why, but as I entered here this moment, scrolling down the sweet pages that I saw yesterday, I am crying like a baby. I guess because I know that you LOVE greatly, you have lost greatly, but you continue to shine. THANK YOU, MERCI MILLE FOIS MA BELLE pour tes commentaires si doux et je te souhaite des fêtes splendides et lumineuses, remplies d'amour, souvenirs et l'espoir que personne ne peut voler notre AMOUR....même la ça c'est le début d'une autre vie, sans cesse...bisous ma chère et jolie amie...Anita

A Touch of Grace said...

Hello Claudie...
"Happy Pink Saturday"
I apologize for being late.
All your fur babies are so dear the old ones, the young ones all of them...I am so happy to see that I am not the only one who loves animals to the point of rescuing as many as I can...We too have 7...Although they are not dogs but cats and one doggy... all most all of them are rescue's.
I must say I love your pink kitchen... beautiful!!!
You are a lovely lady, you look beautiful in your pink dress!!!

A Touch of Grace said...

Hello again Claudie

Thank you for all your lovely comments...

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

What an adorable post Claudie!
So many adorable creatures! And your cottage is just the cutest thing ever, you have as cute as can be!
I laughed at your comment about Addison! She is a climber, a major one like her Mommy was. The tree is going to be a challenge this year.
Hugs friend,

Luna und Luzie said...

Claudie, I love your pink pet post today!
Nice to see all your cute pets again!
The Degu photo reminds me so much to our little one which pasts last winter.

lisa Moran, Bilancia Designs said...

Your posts are ALWAYS magical!!!
If one is ever "sad"...they need only come to your site and be transformed into smiles and laughter!
Your friends must ADORE you...with such an incredible zest for life! I am in awe!!
The adorable photos are just that--adorable!
We "rescued" my beloved "Bella" at 12 weeks old, and she is the most precious black and white kitty (now aged 8) who is my sidekick at all times. My children even poke fun of me that Bella gets more attention than they do! :)
I rarely comment on sites unless I am truly inspired...and you do that and then some!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones~
Bilancia Designs

Charlene said...

What a cute post!!!! But, I can't imagine 7 fur babies!!!! My one keeps me on my toes! You must have yours trained better. You should see our friend Cindy Craine now with 4 kitties chasing about... I went by her house last week & she was trying to put up a "cat friendly" Christmas tree... Ha Ha! Charlene

Linda said...

Hi fellow Canadian. I love that you love animals. I have two dogs that I truly love. I came over from Cozy Canadian Cottage. Your blog is too cute.

~CC Catherine said...

WOW sweet French Poodle Friend! I'm your 60th comment - what's up with that? You POPULAR blogger you! :) BUT, I can see why - this post dedicated to your loves is precious. It makes me miss each of them even more...but NOT as much as I miss you friend! Love you...xoxo Your GA Peach

Annesphamily said...

All these furry critters are warming my heart! Love them! We have a redneck cat named Rose. She steals fried chicken! We have Stella, part blue heeler, part something else! She is, we are certain, in the canine witness protection program! Smokey, half boxador, half lab. He think he is a person! Boots is a grumpy old man! He is a purrfect kitty who prefers to lie around and enjoy his sleep! Roxanne is a chihuahua! She thinks she is extremely vicious and large! LOL! Bandit is a rat terrier, old man, likes his rest! Layla belongs to my daughter and her family. She is a boxer. Neurotic! There is Trek. He is a lab mix. Suffers from seizures. Heartbreaking! He does not play well with others! There is the ornament at the top of our tree. In memory of Tinkerbell. She was the toughest lil poodle cookie! Lived to age 16 and was taken away from us so quickly I was sure our middle daughter would die! Pets, they are the very best part of phamilies!

Love those furry friends! They will make you smile!

Hugs Anne
