Sorry for being AWOL from Blogville, it’s been one of ‘those’ weeks.
Anyway, this is the last call for Sword Dancing pictures for Kyla’s Highland Games Pawty on Monday.
I’ve had some fab pics so far and I think it’s going to be loads of fun.
If anyone else wants to join in just email me your pics (please make it clear who you are and include your blog address) to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by tomorrow and I’ll post them all on Monday.
Don’t forget you can use http://pizap.com/ to edit photos, it’s free and you don’t have to download anything. But if you are having trouble, email me a headshot and I can put something together for you. Any questions, just let me know.
Luckily it was raining the other night so there were no fireworks going off and we went for our evening walk as usual.
Up until now I’ve had a charm on my collar that lights up in the dark, which is fine but you can only see it from the front. So mummy and daddy decided to try out an LED collar. They weren’t sure if you’d be able to see it under my fur, so they just bought a cheap one from Ebay.
Sorry for the blurred pic, but you can see my collar really clearly don’t you think? It’s important to stay safe especially when it’s dark out. The street we live on isn’t well lit in the evenings and my collar really helps to alert people walking towards us that I’m there.
How do you stay safe on your evening walks?
Any ideas what I should carve in it?
There are loads of activities going on and I’m hosting the Sword Dancing! If you want to know more about sword dancing, you can find out here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_sword_dances

Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Now it’s October it seems to be fireworks season. Over the weekend there were loads going off in our neighbourhood. Mummy and daddy noticed that our local shops are selling them at ‘special rates’ and I guess instead of waiting till the Hindu festival of Diwali or Guy Fawkes Night, they’ve become impatient to let them off.
Mummy said she used to enjoy fireworks until I came along and now she dreads them. Although I don’t get too scared usually, I did get a little agitated mostly because hearing them go off stopped us from taking our evening walk, so we’ll have to make sure we go out earlier in the future, especially at the weekends.
On the plus side, I read this in our local paper:
At least that’s something to look forward to! Roll on snow, it’s way better than silly noisy fireworks.
Have you heard any fireworks in your area yet?
Yesterday mummy, daddy and I went to the beach. Mummy had planned out our journey in advance, trying to find a good sandy beach and checking the tide times so we could make the most of it. We purposely went out of season so we could avoid any dog restrictions and sunbathers. Mummy was confident that we were going to have a fab time.
But it didn’t quite go to plan. When we arrived it was so windy I nearly got blown away! And secondly the tides were high – err mummy great research there! But we did manage to find a small patch of sandy beach which connected to an area of sea surrounded by some railings, presumably for kids to play in. Although it wasn’t deep enough to swim in, I was able to wade in it safely without getting dragged out to sea.
I tried to make a few friends but no one seemed that interested in playing with me. But we had a good time all the same.
Do you ever get to go to the beach?
Mummy has taken the week off to
run some errands and catch up with friends spend time with me – yay! I’m so happy, especially as daddy is off for a couple of days too.
Today we got a new fence. Our old one was falling apart and although it had a great peep hole in it for me to look into our neighbour’s garden, apparently that’s not polite. So it had to go. Once it was delivered mummy and daddy had to slot the panels in place. I wasn’t allowed to help as daddy was afraid I’d show mummy up, so mummy got to be daddy’s inept helper.
Surprisingly enough they did manage to install it and daddy only has one bruise, which isn’t bad going.
Our new one is a bit taller than the old one and I’m worried it’s going to stop me from seeing what the neighbourhood cats are up to. Perhaps I can make a ladder out of the old fence?
How do you keep an eye on what your neighbours are doing?
Today is my friend Bella’s 1st birthday. So here’s a little video of us playing together. Although I am at least twice her size I go easy on her and happily perform a few judo rolls to make her think she has the upperhand. She is a bit sneaky though and often goes for my collar and ruff, but I don’t mind, it is her birthday afterall:-)
This video also stars her daddy.
Have a good weekend everyone!
Yesterday I had a really upset tummy and I was feeling a bit sorry for myself. Usually I have a ‘cast iron’ stomach so mummy and daddy were a bit surprised and have been trying to figure out what could’ve caused it. My tummy was wriggling around all over the place when mummy and daddy were at work. For the first time since I was a pup I got a bit desperate and had to ‘go’ in the kitchen. I felt really bad about it but couldn’t stop myself. When daddy got home he wasn’t mad cos he could see it I hadn’t been feeling well and we had lots of cuddles which made me feel a bit better.
At first I wasn’t even interested in dinner (which meant I was really feeling ill!) but when mummy and daddy had theirs I perked up and decided to eat mine afterall.
Hopefully by the morning I’ll be back to normal. I think a good rest and lots of bellyrubs will do me the world of good.
I’m really behind visiting you all, but once I feel like myself again I’ll be round to say hello.
Yep meanie mummy strikes again, she wouldn’t let me play with the peacock I met in the park. And I really really wanted to!
I’ll just sit here till you change your mind. I promise I won’t try to eat you.
Noooo don’t go!
Mummy you are so mean! That peacock and I could’ve been best friends!
Did you met a peacock today?
