When we were in the car on the way to our walk this morning, we saw a beautiful black and white mallie walking along the road (with his owner ofc). Mummy squee-ed:-) A few moments later we then saw a huge fluffy red and white mallie. Daddy wondered if there was a mallie meet-up that we didn’t know about. So he pulled over as soon as he could and we headed to where we assumed they both must have gone. It turned out to be a pathway into a section of forest. Only by then we’d missed the mallie party and instead found ourselves at the edge of a field where a rugby match was taking place.
Daddy quite likes rugby so we stopped to watch for a bit and then took a walk around the field. We found a quiet spot and decided to have our own game. As you know, I like to chase a ball, but I don’t fetch it, so it kept getting lost in the long grass hehehe.
Not the most exciting walk we’ve been on and a shame I didn’t get to join the mallie meet-up, but was nice all the same.
Did you go for a nice walk today?
My walk today wasn’t that interesting in terms of where we walked. But it was grrreeat because there were horses!
As you know, Monday to Saturday we usually walk in the park near our house, but on Sunday’s when we have more time we try to go further afield. Though today we couldn’t decide where to go. All of mummy’s suggestions were vetoed because Daddy didn’t want to go anywhere muddy, which is hard as it’s been pretty damp of late and even the park is swampy in places. Mummy had to run an errand (which I’ll tell you about tomorrow) so in the end they decided to take me with them and just stop somewhere on the way back. We found ourselves on the common, but at a different end to where we’ve been before. You may remember that there are tethered horses on the common, and horses are mobile food dispensers. I was in poo heaven! Daddy wasn’t too impressed though BOL. Apparently I’m not allowed to give out any kisses. But it was worth it!
Mummy and daddy have been off work for the past few days and have been super lazy. I’ve done my best to motivate them but it’s been hard. This has meant I’ve been going for walkies much later than usual. Surprisingly this has been great because I actually got to meet up with some of my buddies. Ben and Henry were my first ever friends but they go to the park around mid-morning meaning I usually miss them.
Then I bumped into Rio, a 4-year-old husky. We’ve met a few times before but usually in passing, today we got to have a nice play together.
Then we came home and daddy gave me a good brushie. I was in heaven:-)
And to top off the day, we’re off to nanny and grampy’s for dinner. I wish everyday could be like this one:-)
Sorry I haven’t been round to visit anyone, mummy’s laziness has extended to my bloggy. But I hope to catch up over the weekend.
My favourite game is ‘find the treat’. We sometimes play this in the park and involves mummy throwing treats into the grass and me having to find them. Admittedly it’s not exactly rocket science but it’s fun. Mummy often cheats though and only pretends to throw them. Isn’t she mean!
Mummy AND daddy were even more mean today – they were both off work and instead of spending the day with me, they went to the zoo instead. Mummy had won a reptile experience in a raffle, which meant they got to learn about, and hold, tarantulas and snakes. Daddy loves creepy crawlies so he was in his element. While they were at the zoo they also saw some European wolves. Daddy said they looked kinda bored and that next time they should take me along to play with them. How cool would that be! Weirdly there’s a sign that says no dogs allowed, so to sneak in I might to have to pretend to be a meerkat. Lots of you said that I looked like one in my wordless wednesday picture from yesterday so I think I’d fit right in:-)
Once a month mummy has to get in work early for a meeting. This is a massive pain as it messes up my routine. And mummy, who isn’t really a morning person, ends up going into work like a zombie.
This is the first time we’ve had to do an early morning since the clocks changed and we were both a bit shocked just how dark it was in the park
Admittedly Mummy thinks her camera made it look even darker than it was, but i think you get the idea. Although I had a light on my collar (which I managed to loose on this walk) and she had a torch, we decided to stick to the cycle paths which are usually better lit than the park, but makes for a boring walk. Luckily it was raining and that makes any walk fun! I love to splash in the puddles:-) Mummy said it was the icing on the cake. I’m pretty sure cake icing is yummy so I guess that means it was good, right?
The only thing is when we got home she tried to dry me with a towel. Daddy and I always play bullfights when I’m wet: I’m the bull and he waves the towel around and makes silly noises. It’s loads of fun. But mummy didn’t want to play and got stroppy when I kept running off wanting her to chase me. I said she was grumpy in the mornings!
I’m sure glad it’s back to the normal routine tomorrow. Early-morning mummy is no fun!
Today we went to Nanny and grampy’s for dinner, which meant loads of treats and cuddles:-) After they’d eaten I took them all for a nice walk in the forest near their house. Nanny and I take it in turns to lead our walks, so we compromised and she held my lead for a bit. She said she just needed roller skates and she’d be set BOL.
The great thing is the forest opens up to a field which is usually full of other dog walkers, but today it was completely empty – amazing! So I got to have a good run and chased the crows. I’m thinking of getting a job as a scare crow, I think I’d do a great job:-)
For those of you in the UK, I hope you’re not too scared by the fireworks. We had loads go off last night and tonight was our town’s display which takes place in the park near our house. At one point it sounded like we were back in the Blitz! But as mummy and daddy stayed calm, I took my cue from them and was pretty chilled through the whole thing. My new toy also helped take my mind off the noise.
Stay safe everyone xxx
As you know mummy, daddy and I went down to visit Mollie and her family yesterday!
We had the best time playing on the beach near her house. Mollie chased her ball and I chased Mollie:-) Not being a fetch dog, my ball kept ending up in the sea BOL.
Then we went back to Mollie’s for dinner, which was nomalicious:-) We had such a great time. Mollie and I behaved ourselves and I didn’t eat Alfie, so all in all it went really well. The person who embarrassed herself was mummy who got completely off her face BOL. It you want to see the state she was in, head over to Mollie‘s to find out!
I had the best time, and can’t wait to meet up again soon:-)
ps. Bad storms are due today, so please stay safe if you live in the UK.
Today we went on a lovely long walk with my buddy Lady. We walked in the pouring rain, we got chased by scary cows, we stomped through farmer’s field (on a public footpath) and overall got nice and muddy!
Although there were some breaks in the weather, when it rained, it came down pretty heavily. Mummy and Lady’s daddy dressed appropriately for the weather, while daddy wore shorts and a tshirt lol. And he says I’m silly.
Because of the rain, mummy didn’t take the camera and the photos she took on her phone were pretty poor, but here are a few anyway.
I woke mummy and daddy up nice and early so we could go for a lovely walk. They didn’t seem to impressed with me jumping on the bed and licking them endlessly though. They kept grumbling about me not having a snooze button. I’m not sure what that means.
After waiting aggggges for them, they finally got up. We decided to go to Cheshunt and re-visit the agility course and the river.
You may remember that I went there a few months ago with mummy, nanny and grampy but as we’d gone by train I had to wear the evil halti. But this time as daddy took us in the car, I was able to go without it:-)
As the title of this post suggests, mummy forgot the camera – doh! So the pics are a bit hit and miss as they were taken from both mummy and daddy’s phones.
Did you go for a sunday walk today?
The other day mummy and I were in the park and we saw a heron. Mummy only had her phone so its hard to see in the pic, but its there – I promise! Mummy thought I was scared of it as my tail was down when we walked past, but I was just upset that she wouldn’t let me play with it.
I hope he comes back soon. I’d love to play chase with him.
Then today, we saw the first real sign of autumn, one of my favourite trees has gone that lovely shade of red and gold.
Sorry for the blurryness, another one of mummy’s dodgy phone shots. I’m so much happier now its cooler. In the summer I wouldn’t go upstairs at all, but now I’ve taken to creeping up in the night and sleeping on the floor by mummy’s side of the bed so she gets to
fall climb over me in the mornings. Isn’t that nice for her.
Have you noticed the change in the season?
Also, have you popped over to Mollie’s shop lately? She has this fab new logo and loads of great stuff to buy.
