THIS IS NOT FOR SANTA PAWS’ EYES
I’m joining in on Ranger’s confession bloghop today. The idea is I’m going to confess two things: one true and one false. Then you have to guess which one’s which. Tomorrow I’ll let you know if you got it right or not.
OK so here goes *deep breath*
When I was a pup I chewed a hole in mummy’s towel. She didn’t realise and went to use it, then found she had a homemade poncho! She hadn’t realised I’d played with it and thought it had been eaten by moths. Doh! Mummy you are so silly and gullible.
Daddy bought a nice spelt loaf and left it on the kitchen counter. When he came back it was gone. He thought mummy ate it and told her off. She denied it, but he thought she was lying. She wasn’t – it was me!
So which one do you think is true?
Come back tomorrow to find out!
I was reading Stuart‘s bloggy the other day about the blogville Christmas card exchange and how he’d missed out. I have to confess, I forgot to sign up too!! I’m sure it’s all mummy’s fault. Anyway, I have a few of your addresses, but if you would like to get a card from me, please drop me a line and I’ll add you to my list. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meantime, the most fabulous thing has happened! My boydawg Gizmo had a guest blogger at his pad who advised that it is beneficial for us doggies to get more Omega 3 in our diets during the winter. The suggestion was to add half a sardine to our kibble – for medicinal purposes ofc. So guess what I found in my food bowl last night – oh yeah!! I can’t add any pictures because it didn’t last long enough hehehe:-) On top of that, we’ve also just heard that we’re headed for a cold snap in the UK. Snow isn’t quite on the cards yet, but we’re heading in the right direction. I love winter woohoohoo!!
Right, I’m off to keep my vigil in the garden. Mummy has hung some seed on our bird house and I’m hoping one will stop to take a bite so I can
pounce errr say hello to the birdies *cough*
If you haven’t already, don’t forget to pop by to check on Oscar. He got in a nasty fight yesterday and has a nasty war wound. Wishing you a speedy recovery buddy xx
As I’ve said before, I like being brushed. I know alot of my bloggy buddies don’t, but being pretty hairy I get lots of loose itchy hair. A good brushing really helps to get rid of it. My brush kinda looks like a torture device but it really does the trick.
Mummy has been collecting up the loose hair and a few months ago she arranged for it to be spun. It took quite a while so we’d almost forgotten about it, but a couple of days ago she received an email to say it was ready. She picked it up yesterday and we now have three balls of Misaki wool:-)
Now the only thing is, mummy can’t knit so we’re relying on nanny to turn it into a scarf or a hat or something spectacular. Once it’s done I’ll show you the results. It’s going to be pretty cool!
In the meantime, don’t forget to pop by Mollie‘s store to pick up some crimbo pressies!
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:-)
I want to play with you!!
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.
