Thanks for your get well messages to the mummy. For the last couple of days it’s been like living in a plague house. I’ve been close to painting a big cross on the door to warn people to stay away LOL.
But mummy’s rallied and she’s back at work now, coughing and spluttering over everyone there so they too can share in the wonder of the dreaded lurghy. Daddy has it too, though of course having the male strain it means he’s practically at death’s door. Can anyone say drama queen? So I’m stuck playing Nurse Misaki.
A few of you were asking if I got snow last week. Sadly we didn’t. Just rain. And according to the weather report we’re in for clear skies for the foreseeable future. I’m thinking of asking Animal Couriers to chauffeur me to America. Perhaps I could visit all my bloggy friends who have snow??
In the meantime, for any of you going to Crufts have a fab time. Looking forward to hearing all the news!
But even that wasn’t enough. She moaned that I was squashing her. Talk about unappreciated!
And as you can imagine this means we haven’t had a chance to visit any of your bloggies. If she’s feeling better this afternoon we’ll try to spend some time catching up.
In the meantime, thanks to those of you who voted for me in the Pup personality contest, I didn’t win but I did come in the top ten: http://barkarama.co.uk/entry/puparazzi-the-top-ten-pup-personality-2014-entries
And thank you also to Sammy, for putting together the pawesome moon trip which was loads of fun
Time to snuggle on the sofa with mummy again. Hope she’s more appreciative this time!
Guess what our local paper said:
I am SO excited that we might get snow today!!!! Mummy thinks we’ll just have rain (as usual) but I have faith in the white stuff. I’m just going to lie here and wait till it comes.
Come on snow fairies start sprinkling those flurries, I’m waiting for you!
The other week mummy ordered these cool doggie earrings from mollie’s mummy’s shop.
And she likes them so much she got the bracelet to match:
The pics don’t do them justice at all, mummy was having issues with the selfie option on her phone and the pics came out a bit dark. In reality they are really shiny and cute.
Mollie’s mummy has loads of fab things in her store, so don’t forget to pop by and have a look.
In the meantime, I’d like to introduce to you a new bloggy friend. His name is Neo and he’s a mallie like me!
Now I’m off to the park to do some of this:
With my buddy Sebastian.
Have a great day everyone.
My mini me had so much fun the other week at the mini me olympics, she decided she wanted another adventure. I’ve been trying to think of something she could do and then I heard that a family of clown fish had been spotted in the area, so she fashioned a snorkel and literally dove in!
I’m thinking of making my mini me adventures a regular feature. What would you like to see her do next?
Ps. sorry if any of you received a half-finished post about doggie earrings yesterday, mummy pressed publish rather than save – I wonder at her sometimes! I’ll be bringing you news about those tomorrow
Yesterday the UK media spread the news about a 6 day old baby in South Wales that was allegedly killed by an Alaskan Malamute. It made the front pages of several papers and I gather was hotly debated on the radio too. You can read this story on the BBC website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-south-west-wales-26242506
There are lots of unanswered questions in this story, such as the dog’s history: I gather he was a rescue but it’s not clear why he’d been given up. And also why were the baby and the dog left alone together? So far the dog has been seized but not destroyed, which suggests there is some doubt over the incident. Though from the tone of the headlines yesterday it appeared to be an open and shut case.
I don’t know if or why the dog attacked the baby and can’t even begin to speculate. But I do know that the media coverage of this story has already had a negative affect on my breed. It saddens me to think that those headlines may doom many malamutes to being abandoned through fear of similar incidents.
Malamutes are a loving, friendly dog in the right hands. But as with any dog, training and socialisation are vital. With the popularity of films such as Twilight, malamutes are becoming an increasingly fashionable dog to own. But not everyone does their research before committing to dog ownership.
My heart goes out to the family in question. What happened was truly horrific. But I also worry what the press coverage of this incident has done to the reputation of the Alaskan Malamute in the UK.
The other day my buddy Sammy gave me the Sunshine Picnic award.
Once you get it you have to pick ten friends to invite to your picnic and give them something to bring as their contribution! Sammy said this about me:
- how about bringing some of your toys to share with everyone Misaki? I know you must have a giant toybox full of fun stuff…!
Well, no I don’t have a toybox. My toys have their own house! Yes it’s true
I am spoiled. See mummy and daddy bought me an enclosed bed when I was little but I don’t like it anymore. Mostly cos on the very rare occasion I was naughty, daddy would tell me to ‘go to bed’, and so I associated it with being told off. And instead opted to sleep on the armchair. At first a few toys were put in my bed to entice me to use it again, which didn’t work. And it kinda went from there. And now it looks like this (and there are a few missing):
I think that’s a modest pile of toys, right?
Thanks Sammy for the award. I’m still trying to think of what everyone can bring and then will pass it on.
Do you have a toybox or toyhouse?
It’s been a long time coming but the Queen of Hearts ball is finally here. Woohoo!!
As my boydawg Gizmo isn’t around and my prince charming didn’t arrive with my slipper the other day, I decided to go with my bestest buddie Mollie.
I just know we’re going to have a blast together!
Happy Valentine’s day everyone!!!
