This morning we went to the park that I often go with my friend Lady. Although its about an hour’s walk, its only 10 minutes by car. And its right by Beckingham Palace
So, visit your nearest body of water:
Follow Gizmo’s blog: I was following Gizmo via email, but for some reason I missed a post or two, so to be on the safe side I also signed up to follow him on Bloglovin‘. I don’t know if you use Bloglovin’ but I find it really useful for those blogs that don’t have email subscriptions.
Find flowers: there wasn’t a nice bed of flowers, but the field was covered in buttercups. Hopefully that counts!
And lastly, find a butterfly. You’ll have to bigify this pic to see it, but there was a small white butterfly flitting around, which we just managed to snap a pic of. It is pretty small though.
Wasn’t quite as smooth as my first park bingo post, but hope it still counts.
Have a great sunday!
You’ll be pleased to hear that my park has now fully recovered from the ‘trashing’ it received at the weekend and all is back to normal! So I decided to do my first Park Day 2.0 post which is hosted by my boydawg Gizmo and the lovely Finn.
I picked bingo card 4 and went for an easy row.
1. Follow Finn‘s blog – CHECK
2. Like Kong premium treats on facebook - CHECK
4. Find a monument or sculpture. There are a couple in my park but I chose the war memorial - CHECK
5. Take a walk in a nature reserve. Yep we have one of those too - CHECK
And that makes BINGO! So there we have it, my first park day 2.0 post. Are you taking part?
Over the park this morning I found lots of litter scattered about and the bins overflowing. I guess that means lots of people had fun while I was at the seaside yesterday.
This always stresses mummy out as often glass bottles have been smashed so we have to be careful. But I’m a doggy with a positive attitude and sometimes you can find great stuff in other people’s rubbish. So I had a good rummage in here
Before mummy dragged me away I found a sandwich and a few sausage rolls – score!
Mummy said I was a greedy scavenger but I was just doing my bit for the environment by reducing the amount of rubbish being sent to land-fills:-)
She didn’t seem to mind so much when I found this cool frisbee.
Did you find anything on your walk today?
We’ve had beautiful weather this bank holiday weekend, so much so that mummy (who is permanently pasty white) has actually caught some sun! Today we decided to head to the seaside. We’re about an hour’s drive from the sea and mummy had been told about a beach with no dog restrictions, so we were pretty excited about the trip. However, when we arrived there was a big sign saying no dogs on the beach between 1st May and 30th Sept! So the trip didn’t quite go to plan.
The photos below are a bit deceptive, they make it look like we had the place to ourselves. That couldn’t have been more further from the truth: the whole area was packed with sun seekers, and every other person had their dog in tow. We managed to find a few quieter spots for a dip but I must confess I was a bit suspicious of the sea. Daddy bravely waded in to encourage me but I wasn’t too sure.
I hope I get to go back to the beach again but maybe next time we can find somewhere quieter without any restrictions.
How did you spend your bank holiday weekend?
I’m not a fetch dog. I may chase a ball or stick, but I’ll only bring it back if I want to. The way I see it, if they wanted it so badly then they shouldn’t have thrown it away – right? This infuriates daddy endlessly hehehehe. Mummy videoed some of my least cooperative moments for your viewing pleasure:
Do you fetch?
I’m joining in with Gizmo’s Park Day event today! I love going to the park so I thought I’d share some of my favourite pics from a few different park trips.
We’re really lucky as our local park is just round the corner from us and I know I’m biased, but its really cool:-) Its pretty big and as well as the usual stuff, it has a duck pond, a stream and pet’s corner which is where the sheep and other animals live. It also connects to the river via an underpass and bridge so covers all bases really -who could ask for more:-)
Did you go to the park today?
Yesterday I met up with my friend Lady and we had a lovely walk together. It was quite warm, around 20°c, which is the hottest its been so far this year. But luckily there were plenty of places we could take a dip to cool down.
As well as splashing around in the pond and the river, we chased a pheasant but mummy failed to take a photo – I seriously need a new photographer!
But most of all we got good and tangled several times hehehehe! That’s definitely one of the best parts of being on long leads:-)
Today I met up with mummy’s friend K and her dog Toby. He’s a
chew toy Chihuahua. Mummy wasn’t sure how it would go and said I had to be on my bestest behaviour. Mostly because Toby doesn’t socialise with other dogs much and also because he barks ALOT. And as I rarely bark, sometimes I get freaked out by vocal dogs.
But overall it went well, we didn’t actual wrestle, although I would’ve liked to, but I did show him round my park and introduced him to a few friends.
Afterwards they came back to ours for a bit. Mummy said I was good for not making a fuss about letting him in. He growled at me a few times but mummy said not to take it personally, he was obviously a bit nervous. And I didn’t mistake him for a toy, so all went well:-)
Although it was fun, I’m meeting up with my friend Lady tomorrow for a proper romp about:-)
Today was seriously windy. And that’s the one type of weather mummy hates walking me in. When I was little and unimpressed about walkies (before I met Bud) mummy tried to take me out on a windy day and I refused. I sat by the front door and wouldn’t budge!
But nowadays I just get super-hyper in the wind. Mummy always thought this was because I was scared, until Dogdaz pointed out that the wind stirs up all the different scents and that’s what’s making me so excited. Duh, mummy!
This morning was no different. I went crazy when I saw Bud. But as he’s 10 now, and not into playing I found a stick to chew instead. While I was in this unladylike pose, Bud took a sneaky butt sniff – how cheeky is that! Mummy didn’t quite catch the moment but you can get the idea from this pic.
I guess its a good thing it was the weather that was windy and not me, or Bud would’ve got a surprise BOL.
Yesterday (Sunday) we had lovely weather, but mummy had to go to work and daddy had plans to meet some friends, so that meant no fun Sunday walk for me:-( We just went to the park in the morning as usual but this time I saw a horse. I’ve seen horses before and have been interested in them but haven’t been allowed to get too close. But this one was particularly pretty and I was desperate to meet him. I sat and watched as he pranced about, mummy tried to drag me away but I wouldn’t budge. I was completely enchanted by the site. She took a picture but you might have to bigify it to see him.
Mummy had to stay later at work than she expected and daddy got held up too, so I was left home alone longer than either intended. Mummy ran all the way from the station and I threw myself in her arms when she finally got home. She felt so bad she gave me a filled bone even though it was close to dinnertime. And then when daddy got home he gave me some treats and loads of cuddles. Then when we went for an evening walk they didn’t tell me off when I made friends with a man waiting to cross the road even though I jumped up to give him a lick. I like it when they feel guilty:-)
If you want to know what I got up to while they were out, head over to Gizmos!
ps. I’ve also been interviewed over at Peace, Love and Whiskers
