The other day I met some of Bacon’s British cousins. And they were so friendly and eager to chat, unfortunately my Pig is a bit rusty so we didn’t get beyond the pleasantries.
Mummy’s pictures aren’t great, but hopefully you can see them. I just love making new friends. Have you made any unusual friends lately?
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: firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll also be posting my e-card on the 24th as usual.
Happy Monday everyone!
The other day I bumped into my friend Cooper who I haven’t seen for a few months. Last time I saw him he looked like this:
When Sebastian and I caught up with him a few days ago, he looked like this:
Mummy was so surprised, she cut my head off in the pic! You’ll also notice I soaking wet. Cooper decided to push me into the stream lol. Though I wasn’t complaining as it was a super hot day!
I’m glad he’s big enough for a real rough and tumble game now.
Hope you’re having a good day!
I’d like to introduce you to my buddy Luna, She’s a husky-collie cross and is about a year and a half. I think she looks alot like Lexus from Loved by a Husky. Here’s a little video of us together, as you can see her human brother wanted to play too lol.
Sorry about all the chat in the background. Some silly talk about cats.
Did you make any new friends today?
My bestie Mollie is hosting an auction to raise money for her friend Mabel from CreekHiker. She has gone over the bridge but her mummy has been left with huge vet bills to pay. Mollie is calling on donations, so I’ve decided to offer up my daddy’s mankini! You may remember it from my recent trip to the beach.
Sexy, right?! Anyway, if you want to get your paws on it, it’ll be up for grabs in Mollie‘s auction. You can find out more over at her bloggy.
In the meantime, I thought I’d share a few pics of me from over the weekend playing in my nanny’s garden
I had loads of fun rolling around in the grass:-) What did you get up to this weekend?
This weekend mummy, daddy and I took a trip to see my bestie Mollie🙂
We had a lovely walk to the beach where Mollie showed off her swimming skills. I wasn’t too sure about the waves so only paddled my feet. Daddy decided to show me how it’s done and went for full immersion! Only he forgot that his phone was in his pocket and it drowned – whoops
After that we took a walk to a french market were we took in all the smells and I tried to get daddy to buy me some smelly cheese.
Then we headed back to Mollie’s where I was hoping to play chase with Alfie, but he wasn’t interested.
The evening ended with the two mummy’s on the sambuca giggling away while the two daddy’s chatted and watched TV.
Thanks for a lovely day Mollie, hope we get to meet up again soon.
If all goes to plan then tomorrow I’m off to the beach. And meeting up with a special friend:-) Can you guess who it is??
I’m getting all my bits together for my trip. I think I have everything apart from my treat box, I hope we’ll be able to fit that in the bag!
Do you have nice plans for the weekend?
Mummy and daddy recently bought me a kong safestix, this is mostly because I love retrieving sticks from the pond and mummy worries about me hurting myself. So yesterday when we went down to the pond, we tried it out. And as you can imagine, I wasn’t interested at all. So much so that daddy had to wade into the pond to retrieve it LOL.
Luckily he’d bought his flipflops along just in case. But then lost them in the water.
Thankfully he found a stick to use. See, sticks are the best and multifunctional!
While there I made friends with an Akita called Caine. He’s a rescue and not usually allowed off-lead. He also doesn’t like water. But with a bit of encouragement he took a dip. First of all on-lead with his daddy and later he went in voluntarily by himself.
Caine and I got on so well that they decided to let him off-lead for us to play, and boy did we play! And play and play.
His peeps are really pleased as he rarely gets the chance. And they were particularly happy that when we played chase he didn’t run off and instead followed me back to where they were waiting.
All in all it was a really good day. But it didn’t end well. Mummy said I was stinky and made me have a bath:-(
Do you do anything fun this weekend?
Last night daddy and I decided to meet mummy on her way home from work. After we met her, the three of us went for a little walk round the park. As we were heading home, we bumped into another dog walker so we stopped to chat. Anyway, while we were standing there a group of runners appeared and started stretching. It looked like so much fun I ran over to investigate. Mummy and daddy called me back, but I suddenly became completely deaf and couldn’t hear them – weird right? My hearing got even worse when one of the runners gave me a nice fuss under the chin. I then headed over to one of the women runners who was stretching one leg out in front of her. She obviously wanted to give me a bellyrub, so I crawled under her leg and flopped over. But as I laid down, she nearly lost her footing and came pretty close to falling on top of me!
Mummy was caught between laughing and dying of embarrassment. And sadly didn’t take any photos of me and my new friends. If I see them again maybe they’ll let me go on a run with them.
Did you make new friends today?
My brother from another mother aka Ku invited me to do a haiku mash-up with him. How cool is that!
We decided to write about belly rubs, because we all love them and they are fab! Ku’s haiku are in purple and mine are in red.
Me and Nalle love
The vital for existence
Pawesome tummy rubs
Warm hands rub and soothe
Soft caress of fur and skin
Love revealed in touch
I grab Mama’s legs
When she tries to walk past me
More tummy rubs please!
Legs and back stretch out
Eyes closed, mouth wide, tongue peaking
Please don’t ever stop
They’re the bestest thing
I will never get enough
Wonderful and marvellous
Bellyrubs are best\o/
Almost as good are
Rubs behind the ears and chin
Back massages too!
Fingers deep in fur
Soft and thick and fluffy
I’d purr if I could
How cool was that. Thanks so much Ku🙂
