This weekend we went camping in Wales. On the way down it rained. Lots. So our journey looked like this:
Camping in the rain can be OK if you are prepared with extra towels and waterproofs etc, but putting the tent up in the rain is no fun at all. By the time we reached the campsite it had stopped raining luckily, but the ground was very muddy. Daddy was not impressed, and apparently didn’t appreciate my pawprints everywhere BOL. But lucky it soon started to dry up and once the tent was pitched, we took some lovely walks into the hills around the campsite. We also met up with mummy’s friend auntie Ruthie and went to the top of Caerphilly mountain. Which is slightly cheating as you can drive most of the way to the top!
It was a shame it was such a brief trip as there was lots more to explore, but hopefully we can go back again soon. Here are a few photos from the walks we took 🙂
Did you have a nice weekend?
Hey everyone, how was your weekend?
I spent mine camping! Here is me outside our tent.
I wasn’t too impressed with having to stay on a tether line all weekend and frequently got tangled up. But apparently I’m wasn’t trusted to roam freely with so many people cooking sausages around us. I was hugely insulted if I’m honest, as if I was going to steal them! So I preferred spending time in the tent with my new squirrel toy.
It was also crazy hot and I spend alot of time covered in a wet towel trying to keep cool.
My wasp hunting skills were needed loads because silly mummy had a yellow cup and was drinking fizzy drinks so as you can imagine, it was a party for the wasps round our tent.
I got to watch some of a falconry display but there was a vulture hopping around and it looked like walking dinner to me, so mummy thought we’d best take a walk at that point.
She’s such a meanie!
The camping weekend was actually a geocaching event and although I don’t really cache, having come home I’ve now set up my own account and I’m trackable. So if anyone would like to ‘track’ me, let me know and I will pass you the details.
The campsite wasn’t too far from home and was a good trial run for our next trip when we go to Wales in a few weeks.
Did you go camping this weekend?
Today is my daddy’s birthday so I wanted to wish him a very happy birthday. Later we are going to have some birthday snuggles. But in the meantime here we are chilling on the sofa together:-)
Happy birthday daddy! Sending you loads of love and licks, from your little girl xxxx
Last week after my WW post a lot of you wondered if I hadn’t been around because I was lost in the long grass. I wasn’t lost, but I have been stalking about a lot as it’s rabbit season and I’m on the hunt!
I’m not sure if you’ll be able to see them, but there were loads about!
I’ve been having so much fun chasing them! Bunnies of Essex watch out, I’m after you. Sorry Speedy but they live in the park so the way I see it, they’re fair game!
Do you like chasing rabbits?
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.
