I seem to spend alot of time waiting. Waiting for mummy and daddy to get home from work. Waiting for daddy to put his shoes on for a walk. Waiting for mummy to realise it’s dinnertime. Sometimes I have to wait outside the shop while daddy buys himself pressies (mummy waits with me so I don’t get dognapped).
I’m still waiting for the pet shop bunnies to want to play with me, but mummy says I’ll be waiting a loooong time.
But sometimes waiting brings rewards, like when I waited to cross the road and found half a baguette!
Waiting can be pretty boring at times, but I like waiting for daddy to finish his drink down the pub as usually I get lots of cuddles from the other people there.
Do you like waiting?
What, mummy? You don’t really want to get into bed do you? Daddy and I are snuggling so I thought you might like to take my cushion on the floor. What do you mean you don’t think that’s a good idea??
Do you ever get accused of hogging the bed?
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

I’ve been AWOL for a few days so I’m just trying to catch up now. Part of the reason is that due to all the horrid fireworks we haven’t done very much. Over the weekend we went to see nanny and grampy and it sounded like we were being bombed! Although I’ve learnt to tolerate them alot more, I’m still not impressed.
In the meantime I’ve spent some time with old and new friends, including an older husky who desperately wanted to play but she has hip dysplaysia.
We still had a dip in the stream together though:-)
The other thing is, it’s now only 44 days till christmas – scary thought! If anyone would like to exchange Christmas cards this year, please drop me a line with your address to: email@example.com. I’ll also be posting my e-card on the 24th as usual.
Happy Monday everyone!
Slimdoggy would be so proud of me, I took daddy out for a ride on his bike this weekend. Slimdoggy is always encouraging us exercise our peeps more and mine could definitely do with it. Daddy took me out on the bike once before but I was on the lead and I sort of steered him into the bushes to chase a squiggle lol. Surprisingly he wasn’t in a hurry to do it again. This time I was off lead and it took a little while for me to realise that he wanted me to follow him.
But I gradually got the hang of it.
I did get a little distracted by a few squiggles though and had to take a detour or two hehe.
But on the whole it went quite well and hopefully we’ll make it a regular thing.
Do you ever go running or biking with your peeps?
Over the weekend we heard more and more fireworks going off, even though officially Guy Fawkes night isn’t until the 5th November.
In the past I wasn’t too bothered by fireworks, but I’ve been much more agitated this year, very fidgety and unsettled. Mummy and daddy were a bit worried as last night was our local firework display which is held in our park. We can hear it very clearly from our house and it’s usually really loud. So mummy bought me a nice bone to distract me. It was a good plan and worked a treat.
The fireworks were like cannons but I happily chewed on my bone and ignored them.
Fireworks are really scary for us furries and it’s important for us to feel safe. Here’s a link to some good tips: http://www.woodgreen.org.uk/pet_advice/336_pet_firework_safety
Stay safe this fireworks night everyone.
Happy Halloween everyone!
I decided to go in a slightly different direction with my halloween costume this year. I was inspired by one of mummy’s favourite films:-)
I think we’re ready: the pumpkin is done, and we have a box of sweets all ready. Usually we don’t get a lot of trick or treaters but you never know.
Have a good weekend everyone!! And have a spooky but safe halloween!
Mummy and I have been working on our pumpkin – well she did the carving but I directed the process.
She didn’t do too bad a job and I think you can roughly see that it’s supposed to be me
Once it’s dried out a bit we’ll take some close-up dark pics so hopefully you can see it better.
What have you carved in your pumpkin?
