Sunday Black and White - The Games We Play


  1. A friend sent me the photo - I have no idea whose dogs they are but it really made me smile.

  2. A good game of chess in front of the fireplace!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  3. I believe that's Check-Mate!
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  4. BOL! So cute. We think the Golden is a bit concerned with the move!

  5. Looks like it is going to be a close match!

    What an adorable shot!

  6. Two handsome Mates - which one will get Check Mate first?

    Woos - Lightning and Misty

  7. oh that is the best idea ever... chess and a fireplace... is the canine version the same like the one of the humans? or can we eat the meeples we won?
