The WFT Wellibobs

Way back in mid-September, mom ordered a pair of wellibobs for herself. 
She loves when Asta's mommi is sporting hers on Asta's blog and she loves seeing Jake and Fergie's mom wearing hers on their blog.
The welli's came in record time - only they were 2 sizes too large   :-(
So mom mailed them back for an exchange.
 She has gotten to be good friends with a man named Richard at Joules who assured her that her new and the correct size wellibobs were on the way. This was after 2 months of no wellibobs and many emails going back and forth! 
We waited and waited and waited.
On Mitch's birthday, mom's wellibobs arrived!  yipppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
This is definitely cause for celebration after this long wait!

 Mom is in love with her new wellis!  Can you see the cute little Wire Fox Terriers on her boots?
These boots have a furry lining and they are very warm and very comfy!
 Enough already, mom!
When can we go for a walk so you can try out your new welli's OUTSIDE!
Just to let you know - mom kept those wellis on all day long both inside and outside.  I think she's in love!


We did watch the movie Hachi last night after our turkey dindin and yes, it was sad but it was a WONDERFUL movie and a true story!  On a scale of one to 10 - we give it an eleven! 
We can't wait to watch it again!

So until next time...............

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

On no, not more wellibobs!!! Having said that they look very cool - our mum has Joules wellingtons - the first pair had lots of cool doggies on but sprung a leak!
They were so pricy she complained and she got another aquamarine pair - not quite so pretty but at least they appear to be waterproof.
We like the idea of wellibobs but our fields are so very wet that we are not sure they would do!
Sorry we are behind - well read backwards........!
As you know we were a bit distracted yesterday...!
Much love

OMD! We looooove your mom's wellibobs! Our mom should get some since she will be going to see Aunt Wendy's new horsie quite often. Yesterday, she wore rubber shoes, but those just won't work after lots of rain!

The autumn tint makes the mind painful.

Those look awesome. Do you think they come with mastiffs on the toes? Thanks for the movie review. We are always looking for stuff to put in the netflix cue.

Our Mom needs some Wellies for walking around our muddy yard. She gets annoyed when her boots leak and her feet get all wet. We don't mind wet, muddy feet, but she seems to.

To me like wellis. Mummy also has wellington, nicely warmly for our wet meadows. I may not run barefoot in the wet one. I would also like to have warm feet. I want wellis for myself!
Lots of love

Sherry said...

Brrr, any shoes that are warm sound good around here and doggies on the toes are an added plus.

Funny, but we never heard of wwellibobs before.

Momo and Pinot said...

Hello guys, we've missed you so much!

Mitch, happy belated birthday!!

We're so sorry for not being able to visit you at all. Our pawrents have abandoned us again!

We recognized DVD-Hachi. We cried so hard when we watched it and we hope you enjoyed the movie. Guess what? Our humans visited a statue of Hachi( Hachi-ko) in Shibuya, Tokyo, just a few days ago.

Love,
Momo & Pinot @ sending by our hotel staff's iPhone

Priscilla said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch, many thanks for your birthday wishes to me. I enjoy reading your blog and would love to know more about both of you too!
Your mom's wellibobs are fantastic but my mom doesn't have any boots like them because it's too warm to wear them here!

Matilda said...

I also like the movie "HACHI".
My mom always crys.

OH<<

Mumsie has been waiting to become a member of the Wellibob Club...

Joules HAD made a darling pair of purple wellibobs; they are only now available in a size more suited for my delicate paws than Mumsie's hoooge size 8's...were yours pretty true to size? Do they run wide????

So many questions...

Oh...and Mumsie sez her feet aren't really that big, my paws are just small...she um accidently dropped me yesterday when she picked me up and I'm still a bit bitter...

Kisses,

Lacie

And we are most concerned about Miss Sunshade, too...Power of the Paw is comin' from PA also....

Sally said...

OMD! I love your mom's wellibobs.
Happy Weekend.

Nice woooh

Niamh said...

Your mom's wellies look great and that means her feet will be dry and toasty when she takes you on walks this winter. That is a good thing.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

sophie...^5 said...

Now look what you've gone and done...suggested a new movie for me to watch...off I go to get it! TKS!

BRUTUS said...

Love the wellies! No more excuses for not taking you for walkies even if it's all wet & rainy!! Hmm, wonder if they come with Frenchies on them??? They could be the perfect christmas pressie for our mom if so!

Snorts-

TwoSpecialWires said...

YES! We can breathe again! We've all been holding our breath in anticipation and excitement ever since the first pair arrived. We are soooooo glad that it was worth the wait for your moma. We know how happy it makes Moma to wear hers, and she LOVES to go out and make other people smile! ('Course we ALWAYS tail wag when we're out and about with the HappyBobs.)

And about Hachi. Yep. It was a tear jerker. Another testament to DoggieLove.

Speaking of which ...
We love you!
Jake and Fergi

Bocci said...

Oh my, I am way behind... Those are really cool shoes-no wonder you wear them everywhere!

So glad you enjoyed Hatchi. We're going to have to watch it again from a DVD (Parental Unit taped it off the Hallmark channel) Not sure we're ready to cry that hard for awhile, though...)

Hercules said...

AH! Really wish I would have read this a week ago...Just ordered a new pair of wellies from Hunter! Could have gotten a super cute pair with WFT on them!!!!!
