The weather has been lovely of late so I’ve been spending lots of time doing this:
I’m also super happy cos my buddy Sebastian is home from his 2 week holiday. We’re back to wrestling and having loads of fun together on our walkies. Yay!
But afterwards I was so pooped I decided to make myself comfy on mummy’s feet and took over the bed so daddy couldn’t get in LOL
On a totally different topic there’s been loads of stuff on facebook recently about the banning of pinch collars in the UK. I must confess I’d never heard of these before, but I’ve seen some photos and they look horrible. If anyone is interested in getting involved, there’s a fb group dedicated to the campaign which you can find here https://www.facebook.com/groups/377732549034419/ and a petition that you can sign here: http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/58850
The last few mornings have been really foggy.
And I’ve discovered it makes for excellent camouflage. Take today for example, I found what mummy and daddy thought was a stick.
Only it wasn’t a stick at all, it was half a baguette! Score! And they didn’t realise until mummy had got close enough to take this pic:
By then of course it was too late as my mallie jaws had made quick work of it hahaha!
I’m loving the fog. Wonder what I’ll find tomorrow.
Did you find anything on your walk today?
Today we headed out early and met my friend Lady for a walk in Hatfield Forest. This forest is pretty vast, it’s not somewhere we’ve been before and it will certainly take a few return visits to explore it all. We found sheep, chased bunnies (or they may have been hares) and saw some deer (wanted to chase those too!). But most of all there were lots of muddy puddles:-)
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.
Today I took mummy and daddy for a walk in Epping Forest where we discovered Ambresbury Banks. Local legend has it that this is where Boudica fought her last battle against the Romans, although having checked Wikipedia just now, this seems unlikely. Either way, it was an interesting place to explore. And the best part was there were lots of muddy puddles to play in:-)
Did you go for a nice Sunday walk today?
I should probably point out it’s only open to residents in the UK and Ireland and closes on Friday 28th February. If you want to enter, send a clear photo to capture your dog’s winning personality, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject Pup Personality 2014, along with their name, age, breed and why their personality makes them top of the pups!
The competition is pretty tough, with some dogs already having over 600 votes. Mummy has entered my snowball fight picture but so far I only have a few votes. So I’m begging for you to vote for me. Pretty please? All you have to do is ‘like’ my picture I’ve put pleading posts on facebook but people have been liking the link rather than the actual picture, and those doesn’t count. If you are on fb, please could you vote for me? Thank you:-)
And while you’re there, you might want to vote for Del too his picture is here
In the meantime, I’ve just comeback from the park where I met a new golden friend. She and I played bitey face and now I’m covered in dirt and slobber lol.
The wind is so strong here in the UK I think I’m in danger of being blown to Oz. If you find yourself there too, I’ll meet you in the Emerald city:-)
Well the day finally came! Before we started I got to meet up with my friends Autumn and Ezio and we had a bit of a play. I also made some new friends, it was amazing seeing so many dogs in one place and everyone was really well behaved.
Luckily it wasn’t raining but it was really muddy. 5km isn’t really that far but I set quite a punishing pace. Mummy and daddy are so unfit that by the time we were 2/3rds round I had to ease up to let them catch their breaths. Which meant sadly I wasn’t first back, but I wasn’t too far behind.
Thank you so much to everyone who sponsored me, I really appreciate your support. I’ll leave the widget up on my sidebar for a few more days in case anyone else wants to contribute.
Yesterday when I was out walking with my buddy Sebastian we met up with Alfie, a rottweiler puppy. I’ve seen him before when I was out with daddy but I got to introduce him to mummy too. He’s grown twice as big since I saw him last. He’s absolutely adorable with massive paws and is such a well behaved little guy. I know we’re going to be great friends when he gets bigger.
He was a bit wary of playing with me and Sebastian at first, so hung back to watch.
But he started to get a bit braver, first by taking a small dip in the stream and then joining us for a game of ‘chase me, I have the stick’ :-)
I know Rottweilers haven’t always had the best reputation, but we all know it’s about the owner. I just wish that anyone who is nervous about rotties could meet Alfie as they couldn’t help but fall in love with him. Daddy was close to pupnapping him lol.
Did you make any new friends today?
For the first time in ages mummy didn’t need her torch this morning on our walk. And neither did it rain. Check out the beautiful sky and amazing cloud formations. Her phone really didn’t do it justice at all, but hopefully you get the idea.
It’s the kind of morning that puts you in a good mood. Plus it’s Friday – great combo:-)
Thanks for your interest in Sandy. According to Mutt’s fb page he is recovering well from his second operation. I’ve also heard that Pat who runs Mutts is going to adopt him. What great news!
Have a fab Friday everyone!
Daddy is back on the early shift, which means I get to take mummy on the morning walk.
Mummy, not being a morning person, struggles to get up when it’s so dark out (the above photo was taken just after 7am). But by the time we finish it’s starting to get light and we can finally see where we’re going. I don’t mind what time of day it is as long as I get to have a good sniff and catch up with a few friends. There’s not so many about that time of the morning, but I’ve been lucky to see a few early risers.
Just a quick note to my friends in the UK, there’s a disease affecting dogs at the moment, which is similar to Alabama Rot. If you see any lesions on your dog please take them to be checked out asap. More details here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-25820926
Also, for any of you in the London or Essex area (if there are any), I’ve signed up to do a 3 mile dog walk to raise money for a local hospice. If any of you fancy joining me it’s on the 9th February. More details here: http://stclarehospice.org.uk/walks.html
And most of all, don’t forget about Madi’s Queen of Hearts Ball. With so many activities to get involved with it’s going to be super fun!
