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?
I haven’t been round Blogville much recently, but I have been busy helping mummy wrap presents, write cards and decorate the house ready for Christmas.
I have had a few fab walks recently though, particularly when I met up with my friends Sebastian, Cooper and Luna. We had sooo much fun together:-)
I’m always happiest when I have a few friends to play with.
Have you had any playdates recently?
Luckily it was raining the other night so there were no fireworks going off and we went for our evening walk as usual.
Up until now I’ve had a charm on my collar that lights up in the dark, which is fine but you can only see it from the front. So mummy and daddy decided to try out an LED collar. They weren’t sure if you’d be able to see it under my fur, so they just bought a cheap one from Ebay.
Sorry for the blurred pic, but you can see my collar really clearly don’t you think? It’s important to stay safe especially when it’s dark out. The street we live on isn’t well lit in the evenings and my collar really helps to alert people walking towards us that I’m there.
How do you stay safe on your evening walks?
Yesterday mummy, daddy and I went to the beach. Mummy had planned out our journey in advance, trying to find a good sandy beach and checking the tide times so we could make the most of it. We purposely went out of season so we could avoid any dog restrictions and sunbathers. Mummy was confident that we were going to have a fab time.
But it didn’t quite go to plan. When we arrived it was so windy I nearly got blown away! And secondly the tides were high – err mummy great research there! But we did manage to find a small patch of sandy beach which connected to an area of sea surrounded by some railings, presumably for kids to play in. Although it wasn’t deep enough to swim in, I was able to wade in it safely without getting dragged out to sea.
I tried to make a few friends but no one seemed that interested in playing with me. But we had a good time all the same.
Do you ever get to go to the beach?
Yep meanie mummy strikes again, she wouldn’t let me play with the peacock I met in the park. And I really really wanted to!
I’ll just sit here till you change your mind. I promise I won’t try to eat you.
Noooo don’t go!
Mummy you are so mean! That peacock and I could’ve been best friends!
Did you met a peacock today?
This weekend we went to visit my uncle Andrew and auntie Harriet who have moved south of the river. We went for a nice walk in a nearby park and it was teaming with squiggles, seriously I think it’s an invasion! There were hardly any doggies patrolling the area and these squiggles were running amok.
I did my best to chase them off, but there were far too many for me alone.
I urge all my friends who live that way to be on your guard. I suspect they are organised and motivated.
Did you see any squiggles today? If so, I hope you gave chase!
The other morning my park looked like this:
How eerie does that look!
Can you see me among the grass and mist? Look close.
Did you see me? Well here I am. I think I blend in pretty well.
Have a good Friday everyone!
Yesterday I went for a lovely walk with my friend Lady. Lady is an expert hunter and she gave me a few tips. And you know what? Her advice worked! I spotted a pheasant, gave chase and I caught it! Mummy and daddy were speechless. I’ve never caught anything before. If mummy had had the big camera she would’ve caught me with it in my mouth and everything!
The only thing is one I’d caught it I didn’t know what to do with it so I left it behind. Grampy said we should’ve had it for dinner lol.
Have you ever caught anything?
