Max - Yup! We know that 'Thankful Thursday' is something that a few other blog pawticipants do - we thought it was a very nice idea so we thought we'd take a break from our busy schedule and give it a try too!
JD - So - we want to dedicate this post to our good blog pals - Fatty and Ally! Oh yes, and their humans too, he he he!
Max - Fatty and Ally are two very pretty little Schnauzer sisters who have a really stylish and fun blog.
JD - They have a wicked sense of humour - their blog postings always make us giggle!
Max - But the reason that we're singling them out for our "Thankful Thursday" is because of what great friends they are! About a year ago our humans booked a holiday to Kuala Lumpur for February 2010 - it was because their local airport had just started doing trips to this part of the World and were offering really good value flights.
JD - Our humans tell us that flying from a local airport 'makes all the difference' - we can't comment as hadn't realised that our humans could fly! Wow - they kept that quiet!
Max - We're kind of in shock about that news! Anyway, they booked this flight - and the reason it was booked so far into the future was because female human had just taken redundancy from her old job so didn't want to travel until she had sorted a few things out - like getting a new (and better!) local job and getting us, which she has now done!
JD - Anyway, earlier on this year we all got to know Fatty and Ally through their wonderful blog. And - wow! - Fatty and Ally also live in Kuala Lumpur!
Max - We let Fatty and Ally know that our humans were going to be visiting and that they would love to meet up if the chance arose!
JD - And do you know what Fatty and Ally did when they heard this? They went out and took loads of amazing photographs and started to produce several tailor-made travel guides, just for our humans! For example - our humans told Fatty and Ally what hotel they had booked and Fatty took her daddy out to the actual hotel and took pictures of it so that they could get a feel for it!!
Max - Isn't that simply amazing?! Our humans have been blown away by their kindness - and are now even MORE excited about visiting! So far these gorgeous girls have published not one, not two, but THREE travel guides, JUST for our humans!
Ally and Fatty and their wonderful humans. Hey - we've just noticed - is Ally always on the left and Fatty always on the right in their group photos....?!
JD - Fatty has been so busy! She's been mentioning places to visit that our humans weren't even aware of! They're so excited!
Max - We wish our humans could visit ALL our bloggie pals, but they tell us that unless their local airport starts doing bargain flights to all the local towns of our pals it's basically not going to happen.....sigh!
JD - We wanted to say thank you Fatty and Ally - we're very thankful we found your blog and we're very thankful that you're our friends - we think you and your humans are wonderful!
Max - If you haven't visited Fatty and Ally yet you're missing a real treat - please do pay them a visit and let them know that JD and Max think they're brilliant!
JD - Hey, we like this 'Thankful Thursday' malarkey - we think we might do it again soon!
