In search of Winnie the Pooh

This weekend mummy, daddy and I met up with my Auntie Els and Uncle Lee and took a trip to Ashdown Forest. This is a huge area of forest in East Sussex with a rich history, including being the inspiration for the setting of the Winnie the Pooh stories by A A Milne.

As we hadn’t been before we weren’t really sure where we were going so we parked up near the visitor’s centre and just went for a random walk through the forest. And although we didn’t find Winnie the Pooh we did see some amazing views. Silly mummy had forgotten to charge the camera and couldn’t take any decent pictures, so only got a couple on her phone and they weren’t that great.

Afterwards we went back to their house where Uncle Lee let me share his lunch:-)

We did have a really nice walk and will definitely go back again. On the way back we picked up some maps of the different walks to explore, in particular a Winnie the Pooh inspired one. I’m hoping I’ll meet tigger so we can bounce together:-)

Did you enjoy a nice walk this weekend?


Cutting the grass

It’s been super hot here in the UK and our garden quickly went from a mud slide to a jungle!

Daddy said he would attack it with the mower, but he didn’t and the grass grew and grew out of control. I’m pretty sure it almost reached the sky! But as well as being super long, my toys started to get lost in it and I was worried I’d never see them again.

So finally mummy took it into her own hands and cut the grass herself. It took aagges. And when she was finally done she found all my lost toys AND my bone. Yay!

DSC_0033I was so happy to find it, can you tell??

Have you found anything recently you thought was lost?


Treat ball modifications

I love my treat ball, mummy puts gravy bones in it everyday when she leaves for work and I get so excited for it I don’t care that she’s gone. But all the frantic throwing it against the walls finally took its toll and it ended up in two pieces:-(

RIP Treat ball

So mummy and daddy both decided to buy me a new one – as you can tell communication is key in my family! Mummy’s arrived first. It started like this:

And ended up like this:

2015-04-07 08.09.52

But don’t worry I ate that last gravy bone!

Daddy scoffed at mummy’s poor choice of treat ball, saying his would be better quality and a more appropriate colour. When it finally arrived it was exactly the same one – BOL daddy!

So to make him feel better I made even more modifications to his treat ball.

I am so pleased with the changes I’ve made, now they are all about instant gratification. The gravy bones go in and fall straight back out again. It’s genius :-)

Do you like to make improvements to your toys?


WW: stuck in the river

I sort of got stuck getting out of the river yesterday and daddy had to pull me out. He comes in handy sometimes BOL.

Exercising in the park

In my park a new exercise area has been built with various weird-looking machines to help the peeps get fit. Personally I think it would be better if they’d built a dog agility area, but can’t please everyone I guess.

I gave some of the equipment a good sniff to make sure it was safe.

After I’d given it a good once over, daddy decided to try a few of the machines out. I stayed close to supervise of course, didn’t want him to injure himself!2015-04-04 11.41.10

After a few of these he was pretty knackered and gave up. I think he’d be better of wrestling and playing with me, less likely to hurt himself and way more fun!

Do your peeps exercise regularly?

Hope the Easter bunny hops your way this Easter and leaves you lots of dog-friendly chocolate:-)

 


balloons

I haven’t been around for ages as mummy has been distracted with my baby cousin (her nephew) and hasn’t had time to help with my bloggy at all. Neglected doggy over here!

We did take a trip to the river the other day and I had an encounter with a balloon. I wasn’t sure what to make of it at all!

Grampy love

As you know, I love my grampy. I was worried that with the arrival of my new baby cousin he wouldn’t have as much time for me. So I was super excited to see him when he stopped by.  I think my tail says it all. And I’m sure he appreciated the wash I gave him too.

The cackling you can hear in the background is mummy.

How do you show your grampy/grandma/other relatives that you love them?
