I think my face says it all

Anyway, this is the last call for Sword Dancing pictures for  Kyla’s Highland Games Pawty on Monday.

Kyla

I’ve had some fab pics so far and I think it’s going to be loads of fun.

Quick post

Just a very quick post today. I’m feeling a bit bad cos I accidentally squashed my friend Milo – sorry Milo.

You see Milo is a bouncy 6month old puppy who I’ve played with a few times before. And last night we bumped into him on our evening walk. He was being really boisterous so we had a good wrestle. But I guess I must’ve rolled on him cos he cried out and when he got up he was limping.
Mummy apologised and we both felt awful. After a cuddle from his daddy he seemed ok and even tried to start playing with me again. But we thought he should take it easy and headed home.
I hope your leg’s ok Milo. I Promise not to squash on you next time!

Have you ever squashed anyone? Or been squashed?


Dance with Me

Just to remind you that I’m hosting the Sword Dancing event in Kyla’s Highland Games Pawty on the 27th October.

Kyla

There are lots of events going on including the Caber Throwing over at Sammy’s and the Tug of Bean over at Easy’s pad. But there are many more, and you can find out the details over at Mollie’s.

A few of you seem confused about Sword dancing. It’s where people wear kilts (underwear optional) and dance around crossed swords. It’s not dangerous I promise!

It should be a really fun event and can’t wait to see what colour kilt you opt for.

If you want to join in, email me your pics (please make it clear who you are and include your blog address) to me at misadventuresofmisaki@yahoo.co.uk by the 25th October. And I’ll post them all on the 27th.

Sword Dancing

As you’ve probably heard from Mollie, our current Pope Kyla is leaving Blogville to take her place over the rainbow bridge. And she’s going out with a bang!

Can’t wait to see what you come up with!


Early fireworks:-(

Now it’s October it seems to be fireworks season. Over the weekend there were loads going off in our neighbourhood. Mummy and daddy noticed that our local shops are selling them at ‘special rates’ and I guess instead of waiting till the Hindu festival of Diwali or Guy Fawkes Night, they’ve become impatient to let them off.

Mummy said she used to enjoy fireworks until I came along and now she dreads them. Although I don’t get too scared usually, I did get a little agitated mostly because hearing them go off stopped us from taking our evening walk, so we’ll have to make sure we go out earlier in the future, especially at the weekends.

On the plus side, I read this in our local paper:

harsh weather

At least that’s something to look forward to! Roll on snow, it’s way better than silly noisy fireworks.

Have you heard any fireworks in your area yet?


Poppies (or was that puppies??)

Yesterday mummy went to see the poppies at the Tower of London. I thought she said puppies and got really excited. I thought I was getting a baby brother or sister and my tail started to wag big time. But no, it was just poppies. Not quite as exciting.

I’m sure most of you have heard about the poppies at the Tower, but if you want to find out more, you can read about them here: http://poppies.hrp.org.uk/

Here are a few photos she took:

Mummy said it was truly an impressive site and if you live in the UK and have the opportunity to see them in the flesh (or should that be petal??) then definitely stop by, it’s a site worth seeing.

And for those of you hoping to see some puppies (like me!) this is for you:

New fence

Mummy has taken the week off to run some errands and catch up with friends spend time with me – yay! I’m so happy, especially as daddy is off for a couple of days too.

Today we got a new fence. Our old one was falling apart and although it had a great peep hole in it for me to look into our neighbour’s garden, apparently that’s not polite. So it had to go. Once it was delivered mummy and daddy had to slot the panels in place. I wasn’t allowed to help as daddy was afraid I’d show mummy up, so mummy got to be daddy’s inept helper.

Me checking our the old fence

Surprisingly enough they did manage to install it and daddy only has one bruise, which isn’t bad going.

I suppose this smells ok

Our new one is a bit taller than the old one and I’m worried it’s going to stop me from seeing what the neighbourhood cats are up to. Perhaps I can make a ladder out of the old fence?

How do you keep an eye on what your neighbours are doing?


All better

Thank you for all your lovely comments on Tuesday. I am back to full health. Still not sure what caused it but I’m all better!

Last night daddy went for a drink at the local pub with some work friends so Mummy and I walked down there with him as it’s near our park. But mummy didn’t seem to understand that I should  stay with daddy and she literally dragged me home while I took every opportunity to turn back to see if he was following us. I was not impressed at all!

And I spent the rest of the evening sulking until he came home.

Do you ever sulk when your mummy or daddy go out without you?

I’m just starting to catch up with everyone and want to send out some POTP to Kyla and Speedy xxxx


Upset tummy

Yesterday I had a really upset tummy and I was feeling a bit sorry for myself. Usually I have a ‘cast iron’ stomach so mummy and daddy were a bit surprised and have been trying to figure out what could’ve caused it. My tummy was wriggling around all over the place when mummy and daddy were at work. For the first time since I was a pup I got a bit desperate and had to ‘go’ in the kitchen. I felt really bad about it but couldn’t stop myself. When daddy got home he wasn’t mad cos he could see it I hadn’t been feeling well and we had lots of cuddles which made me feel a bit better.

At first I wasn’t even interested in dinner (which meant I was really feeling ill!) but when mummy and daddy had theirs I perked up and decided to eat mine afterall.

Hopefully by the morning I’ll be back to normal. I think a good rest and lots of bellyrubs will do me the world of good.

I’m really behind visiting you all, but once I feel like myself again I’ll be round to say hello.


BerryClever

I was recently introduced to a new website called BerryClever. Being a dog with a big nose, I thought I’d take a look:-)

BerryClever is a recommendation site for pet owners. The idea being that you review products you’ve used and those reviews can be seen by other users. So, for example, if you are thinking about buying a Kong product you can look it up on their site and see what other people think. Or alternately if you’ve bought a product you particularly loved (or hated for that matter) you can contribute to the ever-growing knowledge source. Gradually you build up your own profile and in turn you can follow people and create lists. There is also a link to purchase products from Amazon.

The site has a slight Pinterest feel to it, but obviously more focused on pet products. And for those of you with children there is a sister site for babies too!

Here’s a couple of screenshots from the site and you can see a few comments that I’ve made:-)

They are continually adding new products and looking for new ideas and suggestions. There are also some promotional competitions taking place such as the chance to win £50 if you leave 5 or more tips on the site. I hope some of you will take a look and join in, it’s ‘berry clever:-)’
