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!
Last night it was pretty cold, as you can see from mummy’s phone. Well cold for her, not for me LOL
Mummy said her feet where like ice blocks so she snuggled up in the duvet on the sofa. I decided to help her out and curled up on her feet like a hot water bottle. I got so comfy that I feel asleep. Mummy was in heaven for the first five minutes. But you can’t please some people, and it wasn’t long before she was moaning that she couldn’t feel her feet anymore. Well at least they weren’t cold, right?
After she rudely removed her feet and ruined my snooze, I then decided to head upstairs and warm her pillow for her. When she came up to bed, she found me like this:
By this time I was so comfortable I didn’t want to move. Life is so unfair at times. You do something nice for someone and all you get is kicked off the bed:-(
Misaki, aka the unappreciated hot water bottle.
Keep warm everyone.
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.
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.
The most fabulous thing has happened, Summer has finally left the building and we are heading straight for winter. And you all know what that means – snow! Yep, the nights are drawing in, the weather is cold and drizzily. Winter here we come! I am in heaven.
It’s a shame though as already I’ve noticed that the park is quieter in the mornings as my friends seem to be sleeping in late:-( But to make up for it we have visitors this weekend and I’m going to get loads of love and cuddles:-) I’ve been helping mummy make up the spare room and trying to not leave my fur all over the place, though I’m not doing so great on that front hehehehe.
In the meantime there’s loads of things going on in blogville right now. Today is the last day to enter the Hutch a Good Life photo contest, you can find the details here. And I hope you’re all going to join in on Speedy‘s pirate party on saturday. I’m sure there are other things happening but I’m so behind on reading your bloggies I don’t know what they are yet bol.
Have a great thursday and enjoy the colder weather – i sure am
Here’s my third and final baby video. Sadly mummy’s terrible film-making skills made her give up and she didn’t take any more videos till I was older. So we’re back to photos as of next week. But here’s me having some snow fun
Why don’t you join in too? Just head over to Ranger‘s for the list of blogs connected to this hop.
In our park there’s a large paddling pool, but its never had any water in it. Until now! Because of the hot weather its been opened for the summer:-) Our local paper said its open from 10am but there’s no barrier or gate around it so mummy and I went to check it out the other morning. She thought they might drain it in the evenings, but there was still water in it and there was no one about. How cool is that:-)
I had a lovely splash about
I hope its going to be around all summer!
I had planned to tell you about some water fun I had in the park yesterday. But this morning we had the most incredible thunderstorm and I couldn’t not mention it.
I woke mummy at 5.30am to ask her what all the noise was about. She said the clouds were playing a noisy game of bitey face and was nothing to worry about. I decided to sleep on the bed anyway, you know just incase mummy got scared.
At 7am when we were due to head out for our walk the rain started getting heavier so out came mummy’s wellies and we set off. The rain was torrential and within moments we were both soaked. And then there was a flash of lightning. Within seconds there was the loudest crash of thunder I’ve ever heard. I admit I freaked a little but mummy stayed calm and told me all was fine so I settled down. But really her heart was racing and she realised this had been a bad idea. She was worried I’d pick up on her nerves so we started to head home but the thunder was following us!
We’d only been out for 20mins but by the time we got back we both looked like drowned rats. Mummy decided to let the rain subside and then we’d head out again. But it was hammering against the windows and the thunder kept crashing. I wondered if it wanted to come in so I went to the front door but mummy said it liked being out in the rain.
Mummy put the tv on to drown out the sound and we played with my ball for a bit. Eventually I guess the clouds got bored of their game and it stopped, so we headed back to the park to finish my walk. Lots of other dog walkers had the same idea and everyone commented on the storm. One dog had got so upset she had to have a tranquilizer. I’m glad I wasn’t that bad.
The naughty storm has made mummy late for work, partly due to our late walk and partly because of signalling problems on the line. I hope it doesn’t come back anytime soon.
Did you have a storm this morning? And if so did you get scared?
Yesterday I had a good run around in one of my favourite gated fields. Daddy and I played hide and seek, I sproinged around the grass and generally had a great time doing zoomies. But all that rushing about left me pretty thirsty.
Usually mummy takes some water with us but as she’d assumed we’d be stopping by this pool she hadn’t (silly mummy!). By the time we got home I was completely parched and pretty hot. So I quickly emptied my water bowl and spent some time like this cooling down. Daddy said I looked like Mother Theresa BOL
Its supposed to be crazy hot again this week. So I’m thinking of moving to a colder climate. Maybe I’ll head to Alaska, what do you think??
This week has been very quiet for me, it’s so hot I’ve spent most of the days sleeping in front of the fan (as you saw from yesterday’s post). Last night there was only 6 of us in class, where usually there are at least 15. We had most of the lesson outside but had to go in for our recalls. Here’s me and my buddy Oz. The dog who’d been sitting between us was doing his recall so we tried to reach each other to have a play, sadly our peeps stopped us. They spoil all our fun.
A little camping update: We set up our tent in a friend’s garden and I didn’t try to escape or freak out in anyway – always a good sign. But it was as hot as hell inside so we’ve decided to postpone our overnight trial until we get cooler weather. Thanks for all your tips and advice though, they’ll certainly come in handy:-)
It seems many of our buddies aren’t well at the moment. So first of all big healing hugs to my bestie Mollie who’s hurt her paws. My thoughts also go out to Nylablue who’s very poorly, love to you. Please get well xxx
