Yesterday it hit 36°C in the UK – craziness!
Mummy has been taking me to the river in the mornings so I can have a cooling swim, and through the day I have plenty of water and fresh air. I’m pretty good at finding cool places to sleep so funnily enough I think mummy and daddy are suffering more than I am!
At the height of the heat I made myself comfortable in front of the fan.
The weather reports are saying we may get thunderstorms today, so I’m hoping that will cool the air. If not, then it’s more frozen treats and swims for me. Can’t complain!
There are lots of warnings across social media about being careful when walking on the pavement in the heat, about making sure to avoid walking during the hottest parts of the day, and most of all not to leave us in stationary cars. So please be vigilant.
Keep cool everyone. I’m heading back for a nap :-)
At the weekends we often walk over Pish Park where fearsome cows graze!
As you will see from the following video I took my life in my paws by walking passed them. Seriously it was very harrowing and I’m amazed I survived. If you watch to the end you will see my relief.
Do you like cows?
Sorry I’ve been AWOL yet again, mummy has been slack again by not helping me with my bloggy. But I have pinned her down and we’ve sorted out my posts for the next few days and plan to get round to visiting you all soon.
So what have I been up to? Well recently my nanny and grandpa Roy went to Arizona on holiday, and they bought mummy and daddy back a present. They laughed saying it was very true. But I’m confused. What do you think?
It doesn’t look like me at all, so I guess they must be referring to someone else. But I’m the only doggy here. Weird right?
Anyway here are a few things that I’ve been up to over the past week or so. Looking forward to catching up on your news soon.
Thank you all so much for reading and sharing my post about Caramel. If you haven’t heard already then I am so pleased to say that Caramel has been returned to her family!
Details haven’t been released about who had her or the circumstances under which she was returned, but the most important thing is that she is home. It truly is a wonderful day :-)
About a week and a half ago, a brown chihuahua cross puppy called Caramel was stolen during a break-in at a house near where I live. Caramel has an umbilical hernia and a tumour so urgently needs medical care. And most of her 7-year-old human is heartbroken.
You can also see her Dog Lost poster here
There is also a facebook page where you can find more information about the search for Caramel.
Please share if you can and keep Caramel and her family in your prayers. Thank you.
My park has been awarded some funding for a major restoration. Needless to say it currently looks like a complete mess. Once it’s finished it should be fab, with a new coffee shop, new pathways, and a new-look bandstand among other things.
But while that’s happening, my park is covered in scaffolding, and there is all kinds of craziness going on. Like this:
Well anyway, yesterday I decided to inspect the works being done and somehow got stuck behind this barrier. Kinda looks like I’m in jail!
After 87 hours mummy finally moved the barrier and let me out. Apparently I could have gone into the bushes and around it, but where’s the fun in that? I like mummy to feel involved in my (mis)adventures :-)
Have you ever been put in jail?
Today I have a fun guest post from http://www.foodpackaginglabels.net/pet-food-labels/ – Enjoy!
Fun Pet Food Labels for Decorating Your Fluffy Friend’s Food Canisters
We consider our pets equal members of our family. Since we are doing many things together, such as going for a walk to the park, watching TV, jogging, sleeping, going to vacations etc., they deserve the best care. When it comes to preparing food, we are making the same effort for theirs as we are for our own meals, since food plays a very important role in maintaining a healthy life. We choose the best foods rich in protein, vitamins and other ingredients that are good for their development, and we even cook for them. After all, food is one of the ways that can make them feel like home.
However, keeping our pets’ food fresh and organized can sometimes be quite complicated. Since their food usually comes in enormously big packaging, we are constantly trying to think of good and handy storage solutions. Placing pet food bags in the kitchen might cause a mess. The lack of some kind of cover or lid on the bag may result in wasting the healthy food ingredients and spilling out food. The best way to prevent this and organize our pet food is to store it in some kind of storage containers or a plastic boxes. Still, we have to mark the container in some way to make it recognizable. We have a fun and handy tip for adapting and decorating the containers. For this mini project we’ll need:
- Fun Pet Food Labels
- Self-Adhesive Paper
Instructions for use:
Simply download the labels, print them out and apply them on the canister you chose to use to store your pet food. They will make the canisters look cute and amusing, so you can place them in the kitchen, in the pantry or anywhere else in the house. You will no longer have half-eaten packets lying around the kitchen, and preparing food for ALL members of the family will be fun and easy.

A couple of weeks ago on facebook, I saw that a few of my bloggy friends were featuring http://onedrawingdaily.com ‘s daily drawing competition. So I thought I would join in and sent in this picture:
Then last week I got a message to say I’d been chosen and here is my picture:

OK I know it’s Monday, but yesterday we went out for Sunday lunch with Nanny and Grampy. The great thing is our local pub is dog friendly, so I got to go too:-)
I tried to help nanny with her dinner, but she said she could manage it herself:-(
Thankfully Daddy was more accommodating
I hate being left behind so it was great to join them, even if I did spend most of it having to watch them eat.
While nanny was here, she gave me one of mummy’s old toys. He’s a one-armed squeaky bunny. Nanny is clearing out some of mummy and her brother’s old toys to give to my new baby cousin, but this bunny didn’t make the grade. I don’t mind him being a hand-me-down, I’ve been having loads of fun playing with him. Can you tell?
Mummy is wondering how long he’ll keep his other arm lol.
Did you have a good weekend?
