St. Patrick's Day ~ 2016





Welcome to 

Cuisine Kathleen's 8th Annual 

St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl.




  
Are you wearing a touch of green,

or are you lucky enough to have green eyes?





These two friends are permanent

sculptures at a local veterinary clinic here in town.





I always smile when I pass by and

see them frolicking together out on the lawn.





At times during the year, 

 they are decked out to celebrate special holidays.





They are adorable even when not in costume,

but you have to admit the holiday touches are clever.





Sadie's groomer always has a selection of handmade 

doggie treats available, and this is the

selection for St. Patrick's Day.





Our Sadie girl will get one of the lucky shamrock treats.

 Feeling extremely lucky that this precious girl 

came to live with us in March of 2012.  





It's your lucky day!

Two special cookies 

from the bakery just for you!

These are NOT doggie treats!





Happy St. Patrick's Day 2016!

May the luck of the Irish always be with you!

  5. What a sweet pooch you have and I'm sure she was very good and deserved her Irish cookie treats. When March is her birthday month, she should celebrate St. Patrick's Day too.

  9. Sarah, how clever to visit these cuties decked out in green! Lovely Sadie must look forward to seeing her groomer with these treats waiting. I know you feel the luck of the Irish when Sadie girl came to live with you and I just bet she feels she's a very lucky girl to have found you and your mister!
    The Easter Bunny made an appearance here today, Wow!

  10. Sarah, Chloe and Gracie want to change groomers, how fun and special to have those treats! I got a kick out of the vet's statuary decorated for St. Paddy's Day. You know I love the photo of Sadie with her sequin bow. ♣

  11. I would smile if I were going by that vet's office, too...cute kitty and puppy!
    Sadie's groom is very talented...those are the cutest doggie treats.
    Happy SPD, Sarah.

  12. Love the dog and cat sculptures, Sarah! They are so cute; I'll bet the vet's office has fun decorating them. ;) Your Sadie is adorable. Speaking of groomers, Duncan went to the groomer today and he looks so nice. I have to say, the groomer does a great job with him (though she charges an arm and a leg). I hope Sadie enjoys her special shamrock treats.

    Visiting from Cathleen's blog crawl and wishing you a fun and festive St. Patrick's Day!

    Hugs,

    Denise at Forest Manor

  19. Sarah, How cute these animals are! Having those adorable "pets" in front of the pet clinic and then dressing them for the holidays? Wow! That is really cool.

  24. Sadie sure got some adorable treats! And she looks so snazzy in her green tie!

    ReplyDelete
  25. How sweet! Maybe I should put a green scarf or hat on my book boy in the garden for the occasion (he sorta looks like he could pass as a leprachaun). :) I'd say your little Sadie is just as lucky as you feel. The cookies don't even look real, they're decorated so elaborately! Top 'o the morn to you, Sarah!

  26. Happy St Patrick's Day! This is the day I wear my emerald bracelet!

  27. Another green-eyed gal here, and I am frantically going through my closet for something green. I went through my wardrobe earlier this year and I'm afraid the greens were among the donations to the thrift shop. *sigh* I foresee a St Patrick's Day shopping trip!

    ReplyDelete
  28. What clever vets...love their sense of outdoor decorating fun!! I think the doggie treats look good enough for humans to eat!
    I really like how the bakery decorated those real cookies...very clever, esp. that pot o' gold.
    Hope you're having a Happy St. Patrick's Day. I played tennis this morning in my Irish sweater & got lots of compliments, even though I was roasting.

  35. Sarah,

  36. How sweet the vet clinic does these cute sculptures! Does Sadie go here? And speaking of Sadie---I was under the impression you had her for a long time! Crazy me. Can you tell me more about her? I am such a dog lover and also quite nosy! lol!

    Happy St. Paddy's Day to you, Sarah!! :D

  37. Hi Sarah, All the males in my husband's family have green eyes, including our son. We wonder if that had something to do with their surname, Green. We are always "green" for SPD! Your vet office sounds like a nice place to go and the cookies (both human and doggie) look quite festive! Linda

  38. Sadie is so cute, I bet you had a great St. Pat's celeb in her company.
    I love all your greens and the vet clinic is wonderful with all those sculptures! My husband, mother and grandgirl has green eyes. Thanks for your sweet visit.

  39. Those cuties outside your vet's office are really fun and Sadie's outfit is so precious!! I have a friend who dresses her Labrador up for each holiday and posts his photo on Facebook. He always looks like he's having a lot of fun with it. Hope you celebrated in style, too!

  47. Dearest Sarah,
    Looks like you did have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day, including your precious 4-year old Sadie girl.
    Our Barty-boy turned 12 on St. Patrick's day and is the oldest cat we ever had so far. Hope we have him for many more years to come.
    Wishing you well and enjoy the spring and upcoming Easter!
    Hugs,
    Mariette
