For the past few weeks I haven’t seen any of my friends on the morning walk. All I’ve had to play with is a boring tennis ball and the odd squiggle to chase. Not much fun. But today was a bumper day.
First there was Bella
Then there was Daisy
And then we met Hastings
As you can guess from the blurry photos it was loads of fun. Nothing like a good romp on a Monday morning to start the week off.
Did you meet any friends today?
Today I’m joining in with Bacon’s show and Tell.
The idea is for me to tell you about a beloved childhood toy. So of course I have to mention Mr Bear.
Mr Bear was one of my very first toys and we had loads of fun together. He doesn’t look much like a bear, but his long body was perfectly to chew and cuddle. Amazingly, he’s till around. But not in quite such good shape. he’s living out his retirement in the airing cupboard.
I hope you’ll join in on Bacon’s hop too.
Yesterday it was a bank holiday in the UK, which meant that it rained, rained and then rained some more. I don’t mind the rain at all but mummy wasn’t so impressed. When we came back from our walkies, daddy dried me off and I spent some time in my favourite spot.
They moan that it’s the most awkward place to sleep: daddy has nearly decapitated me several times when he hasn’t realised I’m under his recliner, and as mummy either sits next to him or in the corner, she has trouble stepping over me when she wants to get up. I love how they blame me for this. Surely they should just find other places to sit??
Do you have a favourite spot?
Mummy ‘forgot’ to put up my Wordless Wednesday post yesterday! I really wonder about her sometimes. It was going to be a pic of me laughing:
Then you know what else happened?? They forgot my dinner – can you believe it!!! Mummy was sorting out some washing and daddy was making their dinner and they both thought the other had fed me. I tried to make it clear I was hungry but they both thought I wanted a walk, so started to get themselves ready to go out. It was only that at the last minute mummy thought to check with daddy that they realised that I was literally starving!
I need to watch out otherwise she’ll be eating my food next!
At the weekend mummy and I went for a nice long walk along the river. Daddy doesn’t like going to the river much as we have to walk over the bridge which goes on for miles and miles.
So mummy and I had a solo trip. It was loads of fun. I made friends with a man living in a tent. Mummy said I was being cheeky and after food, but she doesn’t give me enough credit – he seemed lonely and I just wanted to be friends. The fact that he had food was just an added bonus! Mummy didn’t take any pictures, she was too busy trying to get me to move along.
Then as we went a bit further alone the river, I took a little dip and did some full-on doggy-paddling. Mummy said I was a river dog.
My uncle Andrew saw the photo and said that I looked more like the loch ness monster lol.
Apparently I’m stinky now though and overdue for the Bword- uh oh!
Today over at Bacon and Fozzie mum’s is the voting for their Spies Like Us feature. I was super sneaky and managed to get a pic of mummy munching on my gravy bones – oh the horror! I could not believe my eyes. Anyway, you can vote for the best/worst (depending on how you look at it) photo over at Bacon and Fozzie’s.
In the meantime if anyone has any tips on how to climb up to play with this peacock, I’m all ears.
I love a good chase, but not so good at the vertical ones lol.
And in second place, it was Doc.
Speedy was right on his tail so he’ll get a little something too.
Thanks to everyone for taking part and also for voting. Jasper and Doc, I’ll drop you both a line about your prizes soon.
Have a great Thursday everyone!
