Although I spend the day walking, wrestling and playing with daddy, when mummy comes home from work I wake up, fully charged. After a quick cuddle she wants to sit down and chill. I, on the other hand, want her to give me her full attention. But once we head into the garden to play, I can’t decide what I want to do. Should I chase my ball? Play tug of war? Take a dip in the paddling pool? Or chew some rawhide until she gets close and then get her to chase me?
There’s too much choice. Sometimes I try to multitask by doing a bit of everything. On days like these mummy and daddy say I have ‘restless dog syndrome’. And the only cure is a double-team belly rub session!
Do you ever suffer from restless dog/cat/pig syndrome?
Ps apologies if you received my Wordless Wednesday post today. WordPress decided to send it out a day early. I’ll repost it tomorrow.
Yesterday I *may* have rolled in something that smelled divine. Mummy and daddy weren’t too impressed though, they said I was stinky. I thought I smelt amazing.
They weren’t looking forward to giving me a bath so they took me to the pond to try and wash it off.
I had great fun splashing around in the water, not only to clean up, but to cool down too. They thought the smell had gone until later in the day when I was sitting next to daddy. He got a whiff of my divine new perfume, he didn’t seem to like it though. He’s now threatening me with the B word – oh the horror!
Do you like to roll in smelly things?
Apologies to my kitty friends, but the cats in my neighbourhood are taking the fur!
For the past few nights they’ve been trespassing in my garden and I am not a happy doggy. The worst thing is as soon as daddy lets me out to explain the property rules to these disrespectful moggies, they run off like they are playing knock-down ginger!
So I’ve decided to sleep in the garden tonight with a spotlight and a water pistol to teach them a lesson. Now I’ve just got to convince daddy to let me stay outside and to find a water pistol that doesn’t require thumbs to operate it. Any ideas where I can get one??
Have you ever had trespassers in your garden??
Stay home and play with me instead. Or at least help me put my toys away LOL
Have you ever lost your favourite toy? Whether under the bed, behind the sofa, or in the bushes in the garden? Well, that’s what happened to me. This is a picture of my blue ball from October 2012.
I’m not a huge fan of balls unless they squeak, which this one did when I first got it. I loved chomping on it over and over again. Anyway, it went missing for ages and I thought it was gone forever. But then the other week it reappeared from whatever alternate dimension it had got lost in. And since then I’ve been playing with it constantly. It doesn’t squeak and it’s more ‘hole’ than whole lol. But it’s great fun to chew on, and I love it when mummy or daddy chase me for it:-)
Did you ever notice that discovering old toys is almost like getting a new one? That’s how it is for me anyway. I hope it doesn’t get lost again anytime soon.
Have you ever lost and then found one of your toys?
On Friday I mentioned I might be having an adventure this weekend, and I sure did. We went on a mini camping trip.
You may remember that ages ago mummy and daddy bought a tent but when we actually got round to going in the summer, mummy complained it was too hot. So we waited till November, but daddy chickened out cos it was too cold. Typical! I thought it had been forgotten about, but as the weather has been so nice the idea got resurrected.
As we haven’t been before, they decided that it would be worth a trial run. Just an overnight trip to figure out how to put the tent up, what equipment we still need and most of all how I’d cope sleeping under canvas.
We stayed at a local campsite, which I have to say was very nice with good facilities and was well-lit in the evening. On the whole it was fairly successful, although I didn’t feel comfortable leaving any peemail in the camp. We did go for an evening walk by the river so I left some there but through the night I had to cross my legs and woke them up a few times for unsuccessful peemail trips.
Although mummy is the weak link when it comes to camping, it was Daddy who slept badly and was keen to get home asap the next morning lol. And I was so pleased to finally relieve myself in the garden!
We are planning to try camping again soon and hopefully I’ll get over my peemail hang-up. Have you been camping? And did you enjoy it?
Yesterday I showed me curled up with mummy on the bed, so today here’s me and daddy having cuddles. Can you feel the daddy-doggy love?
I’m hoping to have a bit of an adventure this weekend, but don’t want to reveal too much in case it doesn’t happen. Do you have fun things planned?
In the meantime, here are some funnies from pinterest:
Have a great weekend!
The weather has been lovely of late so I’ve been spending lots of time doing this:
I’m also super happy cos my buddy Sebastian is home from his 2 week holiday. We’re back to wrestling and having loads of fun together on our walkies. Yay!
But afterwards I was so pooped I decided to make myself comfy on mummy’s feet and took over the bed so daddy couldn’t get in LOL
On a totally different topic there’s been loads of stuff on facebook recently about the banning of pinch collars in the UK. I must confess I’d never heard of these before, but I’ve seen some photos and they look horrible. If anyone is interested in getting involved, there’s a fb group dedicated to the campaign which you can find here https://www.facebook.com/groups/377732549034419/ and a petition that you can sign here: http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/58850
