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.
Now the clocks have changed, the mornings are lovely and bright so we’ve been going to the park, rather than walking up and down the boring cycle paths. Its been a bit chilly but I like it:-) The other day someone kindly left some bread out for me. How nice was that! Mummy says it wasn’t for me at all, but for the birds. But I’m sure she’s wrong.
While we were out walking, we saw this fun looking guy (or at least I think it was a guy).
Mummy wouldn’t let me play with him though, how unfair is that! I’m sure we would’ve had a great time together. So instead I chased some pigeons. Mummy wasn’t quick enough with the camera so here’s just a pic of me in the park.
Did you chase any birds today?
I suspect some of you would like to curl up next to Daisy in front of the fire, but I’m quite happy in the cold. Mummy says she’s bored of living in perpetual winter but I hope it never goes away!
Today was good and bad for the same reason – it snowed. On the one hand this was fantastic, I am a snow dog afterall! But it meant we had to cancel our plans which was disappointing to say the least. We had arranged to meet up with mummy’s friend R and her dog Jazz. R lives in Wales so the idea was for us to meet in the middle at a National Trust park. We’d been looking forward to it for ages: mummy was eager to catch up with R, I couldn’t wait to meet Jazz, and R was looking forward to ribbing daddy about France’s poor performance in the rugby!
But because of the weather, R was worried about the travel chaos it would inevitably cause and suggested we postpone:-(
So I just played in the snow instead.
Then later daddy suggested we go into town as he wanted to get some shopping. I’ve been into town before but only early in the morning when it was quiet. This was lunchtime – prime time for shoppers and it was snowing. I go CRAZY in the snow! It was also windy AND there were pigeons in the centre – quite the combination! Daddy thought this would be great for my socialization, while mummy thought this was a recipe for disaster! But actually it went really well, I tried to say hello to a few people but on the whole I was very well behaved.
Then we took a long way home which was fun, the snow started the melt by this point. Mummy didn’t manage to get many photos, she only had her phone with her and I was using my last second evasion technique, so she just got lots of bum shots BOL
I’m really sad that I didn’t get to meet Jazz, but hoping we can arrange something when we finally get some warmer weather.
It’s starting to snow again so I think daddy and I will be having a snowball fight soon – woohoo!
Thank you Easy for sending me some snow woohoo!! We didn’t get a lot but snow is snow afterall:-)
Outside of all that we had some snow, I had to go for my annual check-up and I got a new friend. Instead of waffling on I thought I’d show some photos instead. So here’s a taster of what I’ve been up to:-) Hope you had a good one too!
Everyday this week the weather report has changed. Earlier in the week there were severe weather warnings reported for this weekend and we were told that there would be more snow today, but here in Essex it looks like the most we might get is rain:-( Mummy is happy about this as our snow has mostly turned to ice and she’s slipping all over the place on our walks and whingeing loads. Sigh. Humans – can’t live with them, can get bellyrubs and treats with out them! Personally I’m hoping for more snow – but I guess you’re not surprised by that!
She did however help me with my facebook page so I guess I forgive her for moaning so much BOL. BTW thanks everyone for ‘liking’ me:-)
Whether we get snow or not, today is also Burns night, and although we’re not Scottish, we celebrate anyway – you’re probably starting to realise that we jump on the bandwagon for most festivities! Apparently we get to eat haggis – or at least they do, but I’m hoping to try some:-)
Will you be having haggis for dinner?
Mummy was supposed to go out yesterday but because we had loads more snow, she ended up staying in and we played in the garden together:-) So I’m afraid this is yet another snow post!
Here’s a little video of us:
And some photos of me having a snowball fight with daddy. And a few of me and him wrestling in the park:-)
I hope it never stops snowing:-)
The last couple of days have been absolutely heavenly. Not only have the weather gods sent lots of lovely white stuff my way, but my good friend Easy shipped some of his to me too! So we’ve had a plethora (VBP) of snow. How sweet is that?
Last night I bumped into my friend Sebastian in the park, he’s a Landseer which is like a Newfoundland. He’s a couple of months younger than me but much bigger. I didn’t used to like him as he’d bark at me to entice (VBP) me to play with him. As I don’t bark often myself I always get a bit freaked when other dogs bark at me and am never quite sure how to respond. But yesterday he didn’t and we had a good wrestle. Mummy didn’t take the camera so I don’t have any pictures, but it was loads of fun, especially since he was the one who kept ending up in the snow BOL.
All this playing in the snow tired me out though so I spent the rest of the evening reposing (VBP) on the sofa while mummy watched TV.
Because of the snow I didn’t get to go to class today, I thought this was a lame excuse. But that’s humans for you! A tiny bit of snow and the world comes to a stop.
Instead I played in the snow all morning, it was super fun:-) Now I’m having a nice snooze on the sofa with mummy. We’re due for more snow tomorrow – yay!
