It's a Bank Holiday but Emma's not a Bank!

Dear All Bankers or Not,

Today is bank holiday in England, which means that many people don't work whether they usually work in a bank or not. What it actually means is that the banks or financial-type shop places are shut but that's all really and everybody else just takes a holiday in any case. It used to mean that everywhere was shut and you couldn't buy anything but now people can go out shopping too cos they're not working - not earning money but spending it - well they get the money anyway cos it's a holiday they're entitled to with pay as well. Some people still work though; either cos they choose to or cos they have to. Hospitals have to keep going cos people can still get sick so doctors and nurses work. And the police still have to work cos there may be even more people on the streets to commit crimes or have them committed to them. And the people serving the people going shopping need to be there to take their money. And some people just work cos they love it or for some other strange or not reason.

Emma says she isn't a bank and also doesn't work in a bank but she has decided to do some research so that she can find out some things that she wants to know; which is what research is, and so she is at the computer looking for those things and I have taken advantage and asked her to blog a bit for us!

Hope you're having a good day whether you're a banker or not!

Love and licks, Ted and Emma XOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

Me resting after all that posing!

Do continue to send your entries to:

True Love Between Paws and Feet...

And a few more of when we held paws and feet :)

By Special Request...

Dear Everyone Who Reads This...

Not that if you don't read this you're not dear but it only matters if you read it that you're dear cos if you don't read it then you won't know anything about it whether you're dear or not...

Oh and if you happen to be a deer then please send us pictures of your hooves if that's what the things on the end of your legs are called cos I'm not totally sure!

Anyway we had a special request from one of the Foot, Paw and Fin competition entrants for Emma and I to add our feet and paws - just to make sure nobody is confused you'll see her feet and my paws cos she doesn't have paws and I don't have feet.

Also to make it clear we are not entering our own cmpetition - this is just in response to a request and to demonstrate how much fun it can actually be to take photos of your paws and feet or whatever else you have, although I'm not sure you can actually 'see' what fun we had but I assure you we did!

Anyway here and there they are...

Love and licks and sniffs, Ted and Emma XOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

The Foot, Paw and Fin competition!

Hi Everyone,

I simply adore feet, as many of you will be aware. They are my favourite part of the human body. I love to lick them and smell them. Apparently the health reason behind me licking them is to get salt, which is supposed to be good for me, but even if that didn't happen I'd still lick them cos it's such a nice thing to do - and most of them have some sort of cheesy smell, which is my favourite thing to eat. I think I'm also helping my humans cos then their feet get washed but they don't seem to see it that way cos they find it a bit annoying and ask me to stop or put shoes, socks or slippers on their feet to stop me, and then often Peter goes off to the bathroom to wash his feet afterwards with soap and water and some sort of human medicine thing.
Anyway this all made me think it'd be fun to run a competition to see who has the best feet! And so as not to leave out dogs, cats or fish paws and fins are also allowed. If you are an octopus you can send in a picture of your tentacles - anyway you get the idea - please submit pictures of your appendages for consideration. Ideally I would then lick all your submissions in person, or in dog, cat or fish or what species you are, but that could be difficult and require a lot of travelling! So instead I will look at the pictures and imagine I am licking them and you can describe to me what yours smell like. Emma will also be a judge but I think she will judge more on the aesthetics and quality of your pictures - which both really mean what they look like - which I think are silly things to judge on and won't get anything like as high a portion of the marks as my judging - in other words what I think matters a lot more!
The prize will be a treat according to your species and personal tastes and something to eat!
Please submit your entries to our email address
Good luck!

Love and licks and sniffs, Ted and Emma XOXOXOXOXOXOXOX
