Thank you all so much for your birthday wishes. It’s lovely to hear from you all. All your messages really cheered me up.
I hope you are enjoying the cold weather as much as I am, it’s so frosty and lovely in the mornings. Mummy is so funny, she looks like she’s about to climb Mount Everest when we go out, but I definitely don’t need a coat🙂 I have been loving running through the crunchy grass and getting my cost covered in frost.
For those of you who don’t have double coats, I hope you are keeping warm.
It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged, but today is my 5th birthday so I thought I would raise my head from my food bowl and say hello!
I’m sad because its my birthday and daddy has had to go away for a few days. For some unknown reason couldn’t take me with him – so unfair! Of course mummy is here, but it’s not the same. I slept by the front door all night in the hope he would come home early, but he didn’t😦
I’m also sad because this week as two blogging legends went over the bridge. My heart goes out to both Sammy’s and Easy’s families at this heartbreaking time. It was a pleasure to have known them both and I know they will be having a blast together, with Sammy teasing everyone and Easy getting up to crazy antics.
Please pop by Mollie’s blog as she is trying to help Easy’s family cover his medical bills, I know its a tough time of year for us all, but if you can help just a little it would be appreciated I know.
I hope you are all keeping well and I will try to blog again soon.
Love and licks
The other day, the lovely people at Pawsome Box sent me one of their fab boxes to enjoy and review🙂 As you can see my box was filled with some cool stuff:
I am a huge sucker for squeaky toys, so this guy was a big hit with me.
And you’ll be pleased to know he’s still squeaking…at least for now!
These yummy and practical sticks help to keep my teeth clean and breath fresh. it’s a win-win as far as I’m concerned.
The bone-shaped treats are nice and crunchy. Mummy was hoping she could break these up and use them as treats on our walkies, but being so hard meant I had to eat them whole. What a shame hehe!
Clean Pads Paw spray
I’ve got a cream that mummy sometimes rubs into my paws but it tastes so good I just lick it straight off. This spray is supposed to do the same thing as the cream.
The bottle claims to strengthen, moisturise, help heal and can be used daily. It smells very fresh and clean and mummy likes the idea of it alot. Plus not being a cream I’m less likely to lick it off. But I’m not a big fan of my paws being touched at the best of times, I just about suffer the cream. And I definitely don’t like my paws being sprayed. So this hasn’t been a huge success so far. But mummy hopes that I’ll get used to it. We’ll see.
Drinkies flavoured water
This is an interesting idea. It’s water infused with rose petals, lavender, devils claw, orange flower, kelp and citric acid.
This is something I hadn’t heard of before, and in all honesty I’m still not sure what to make of it. Their website states that: The light infusion of herbs in ‘drinkies’ water provides dogs with added health benefits – helping to aid digestion and the absorption of nutrients, providing calming properties and helping support immune systems, making ‘drinkies’ the perfect healthy refreshment for dogs.
I did try a few sips but I wasn’t overly impressed. Really they should make a gravy bone version – I would lap that up! But I might give it another go. Do you think this would be something you’d like?
Anyway, head over to Pawsome Box for more info on their boxes and special offers.
Pawsome Box provided me with one of their boxes for review, but did not otherwise compensate me for this post. The views and opinions expressed in this post and on this blog are entirely my own.
I had the most fantastic breakfast this morning, you can probably guess what it was🙂 And this is how it happened.
Every morning Bella, my bestie, and I meet at 6.30am and take our peeps for their morning walk. It’s pretty dark so we wear lights on our collars and the peeps have torches. We have loads of fun together: we chase, we play, we wrestle and sometimes we just sniff.
The only downside is that most mornings we bump into a couple and their four dogs. These dogs aren’t friendly and we have had a few close calls, especially since neither they nor their peeps carry lights so they are difficult to see.
So this morning we decided to avoid them completely by taking our normal walk in reverse. This was fine until we got to the carpark. Usually I’m put on the lead to walk down the path alongside it as being so dark mummy worries about cars pulling in, its not usually busy but better to be safe than sorry. However, this morning mummy not thinking let me off as soon as we reached it. But as I trotted straight up the path she thought it would be OK. In the meantime Bella had sniffed out a box which smelt amazing. It was just lying there on the ground. But being good, she returned to her mummy when called.
But I soon got a whiff and decided to check it out. I managed to flip the lid up with my nose and a heavenly smell wafted over me. There it was: one slice of pizza all for me.
Bella may be my bestie but I don’t share food with anyone, so I gobbled it up in two glorious mouthfulls! I was still swallowing it when mummy finally caught up with me.
I was threatened with going with having to go on a diet, with never getting any treats, not being let of the lead again…but I wasn’t really listening as I was still in heaven after my wonderful morning treat. It was definitely worth it.
Did you get any yummy surprises for your breakfast?
I am deeply saddened by the news that Alfie as in one half of Mollie and Alfie is no longer with us.
Knowing Alfie as we do, I doubt it’s the last we’ve heard from him. Even so I’m sending lots of love and hugs to Mollie and her family at this sad time. I hope you will too xx
On Friday daddy made
mummy me a nice ham and cheese sandwich for lunch.
He left it on top of mummy’s bag which was on the floor. Clearly he meant it for me and not for her. So while she went for her shower, I decided to have my lunch for breakfast, it looked far yummier than my boring kibble. I took the sandwich into the garden so I didn’t leave any crumbs on the carpet and carefully unwrapped the foil. As suspected it tasted very nice so it gobbled it down:-)
When mummy reappeared she seemed surprised I had eaten it and acted like it was hers. Ever since she’s been calling me the sandwich stealer – how rude it that! It was MY sandwich afterall. And I was thoughtful enough to leave behind the foil so it could be reused, who could ask for more??
Peeps are so unreasonable at times!
Have you ever been unjustly accused?
I haven’t blogged in forever, but wanted to stop by to wish everyone a lovely Christmas. Our tree is up, my presents are underneath and I’ve been tracking Santa’s progress and hope he gets here soon! I’m all ready for him:-)
Most of all I want to say a big thank you to everyone who has sent me cards and ecards, I’ve been truly touched that you remembered me even though I haven’t blogged in so long. I hope to get back to it in the New Year. I already have a competition in mind🙂
But in the meantime, have a lovely time and looking forward to catching up with you all soon.
