New Year Day

We started 2014 nice and relaxed.

Goro & I took a long nap together.

Niko and I enjoyed brushie time.

We all had fresh air out on the deck.
(Didn't stay very long, though.)

And another thing we did...

This is a pawprint kit I got couple of weeks ago.

( 1 ) Knead the impression material to
make it soft and smooth.

( 2 ) Press the paw on it gently.

( 3 ) Thank kids with treat
for letting us take their pawprints.

And here they are - pawprints in photo frames.
I love them very much!



We wish you all a very happy new year!


  1. Those paw prints are great! 'Specially if it means getting extra treats!

    Happy New Year to you all.

  2. Aw, those paw prints are very cute! Happy New Year, dear friends!

  3. Oh I love these. I love seeing the boys being so cooperative and their daddy kneading the material for them before they put their sweetest dear feeties on it.

    What loved and happy boys they are and that makes mom and I very happy to see. We are so glad Michiko chan introduced you to us. You charm mom and I every day. Xo

  4. Good idea... will do one for my dog too! Cute cat! Happy New Year to you and all your love one! Mei

  5. hee hee! I like the Crime Scene Investigation use for these kits--paw print I.D.! What a great project.

  6. Those are very cool kits! I especially like the getting a treat afterwards part.

  7. Dear Tamago,
    I had a blog break and so I have read a lot of your posts today. Your boys are too cute. The little girl you found at work, looks a bit long haired. Will become a pretty girl later. I love the idea with the foot prints. Your boys are so beloved and they give so much love back. I wish you all a wonderful New Year.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  11. Happy new year! We love the paw prints...Our human had one done of Annie, but that was after she had passed and at the time of her cremation. She thinks it would be nice to have one each of us while we're still alive.

  18. Happy New Year! The paw print kit is really cool! we love how Goro's and Niko's turned out. Our mom has always wondered if we wouldn't be too squirmy to pull that off.

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

  27. Love those paw prints. I should tell mom to get a frame and paw print for me too.

  28. Those paw prints are great - do they help you to hunt for clues as to who has stolen your breakfast?
