Happy Easter!!

I’m not sure how much I’ll be around this weekend as we are visiting family and friends, so I thought I’d wish you a very happy Easter now while I have the chance. If you don’t celebrate Easter, then enjoy the long weekend and the (dog friendly) chocolate:-)

Misaki the Easter bunny

Have a good one:-)

Restless dog syndrome

Although I spend the day walking, wrestling and playing with daddy, when mummy comes home from work I wake up, fully charged. After a quick cuddle she wants to sit down and chill. I, on the other hand, want her to give me her full attention. But once we head into the garden to play, I can’t decide what I want to do. Should I chase my ball? Play tug of war? Take a dip in the paddling pool? Or chew some rawhide until she gets close and then get her to chase me?

There’s too much choice. Sometimes I try to multitask by doing a bit of everything. On days like these mummy and daddy say I have ‘restless dog syndrome’. And the only cure is a double-team belly rub session!

Do you ever suffer from restless dog/cat/pig syndrome?

Ps apologies if you received my Wordless Wednesday post today. WordPress decided to send it out a day early. I’ll repost it tomorrow.


Yesterday I *may* have rolled in something that smelled divine. Mummy and daddy weren’t too impressed though, they said I was stinky. I thought I smelt amazing.

can you see that dark spot on my neck?

They weren’t looking forward to giving me a bath so they took me to the pond to try and wash it off.

I had great fun splashing around in the water, not only to clean up, but to cool down too. They thought the smell had gone until later in the day when I was sitting next to daddy. He got a whiff of my divine new perfume, he didn’t seem to like it though. He’s now threatening me with the B word – oh the horror!

Do you like to roll in smelly things?

Overnight camping trip

On Friday I mentioned I might be having an adventure this weekend, and I sure did. We went on a mini camping trip.

You may remember that ages ago mummy and daddy bought a tent but when we actually got round to going in the summer, mummy complained it was too hot. So we waited till November, but daddy chickened out cos it was too cold. Typical! I thought it had been forgotten about, but as the weather has been so nice the idea got resurrected.

As we haven’t been before, they decided that it would be worth a trial run. Just an overnight trip to figure out how to put the tent up, what equipment we still need and most of all how I’d cope sleeping under canvas.

We stayed at a local campsite, which I have to say was very nice with good facilities and was well-lit in the evening. On the whole it was fairly successful, although I didn’t feel comfortable leaving any peemail in the camp. We did go for an evening walk by the river so I left some there but through the night I had to cross my legs and woke them up a few times for unsuccessful peemail trips.

Although mummy is the weak link when it comes to camping, it was Daddy who slept badly and was keen to get home asap the next morning lol. And I was so pleased to finally relieve myself in the garden!

We are planning to try camping again soon and hopefully I’ll get over my peemail hang-up. Have you been camping? And did you enjoy it?

Friday cuddles

Yesterday I showed me curled up with mummy on the bed, so today here’s me and daddy having cuddles. Can you feel the daddy-doggy love?

I’m hoping to have a bit of an adventure this weekend, but don’t want to reveal too much in case it doesn’t happen. Do you have fun things planned?

In the meantime, here are some funnies from pinterest:

OMD it's Cupcake and Bacon!

Have a great weekend!

post mother’s day

This weekend was a bit crazy. We had both sets of grandpawrents over for dinner for mother’s day so Saturday was a flurry of activity, with cleaning and shopping and prep work. Then Sunday I had to supervise the cooking, and then when everyone turned up I had to play welcome committee, washer, hoover and entertainer. It was a very busy day for me. I also kept an eye on everyone through dinner to see if they needed any help with their food. Unfortunately they all seemed to manage just fine:-(


don’t mind me

I am pretty knackered now and definitely need to have a good snooze to recover


I am sooo behind in reading on your bloggies, but will really try to get round to see you all today.

Friday round-up

Yay it’s Friday!


I thought I’d do a kind of follow-up Friday thing today.

First of all I thought it was really funny that so many of you thought it was mummy talking on the video I posted on Sunday: http://themisadventuresofmisaki.wordpress.com/2014/03/16/fun-in-the-pond/ It was actually daddy LOL

Also you may remember I mentioned Sandy, the dog with wonky legs a few weeks ago. I’ve been following his progress on fb and he’s coming on leaps and bounds. There have been various articles in the national news, but there are some fab photos of him on the Mutts in Distress website: http://www.mutts-in-distress.org.uk/index.php/special-appeals/183-sandy

Thanks to Mollie and Easy for hosting the pets in pants bloghop, I think we all had a good laugh over that.

And lastly I’m trying out a new look. What do you think?


I think I’ll leave you with this dogword search. Good luck!

Dog Search


Today is going to be a fun day for two reasons, First of all it’s Stuart and Ranger’s raceday party.


And I am all-set! Just called me Misaki-o BOL.

Misaki karts

But on top of that mummy and daddy are abandoning me for the day to meet up with my uncle Lee and Auntie Els, apparently it’s a no-dog day – how rude! But to make up for it, I get to spend the day with grampy. Oh yeah! And grampy has been out buying jumbo twists for me woohoo!  These are fat free, so in Grampy’s world that means I can have two:-) Mummy doesn’t agree, but if mummy’s not there…well you get the picture. As my friend Dante would say: what happens at Grampy’s stays at Grampy’s!


me and grampy

 Have a great saturday everyone!

Nurse Misaki

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.

Nurse Misaki

time for your shot mwhahahahaha!

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!

mummy has the lurghy

Yes Mummy is home sick. She’s spent the weekend coughing all over me, which is no fun. I did my best to keep her warm by laying on her legs.

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!
