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?
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.

Today I have a special guest post from Andrea at veterinarytechnicianguide.com which I hope you’ll enjoy:
Not every pup has a super hero parent like Misaki does.
As a veterinary technician, we get an adrenaline rush when we get emergency calls. But when emergency calls become “I don’t have time to clean Sparky’s constant vomiting, so now its an emergency for me” calls, then we just get annoyed.
As much as we would like every pet parent to take their dog’s vomiting seriously the first time it happens, far too often they would rather wait until the vomiting gets so bad it’s starting to affect their daily routine.
Whether you have an Alaskan Malamute or a Pug, being a good pet parent makes you a super hero parent in the eyes of all veterinary technician!
That’s just one example of what vet techs go through on a daily basis. You can access the full article on the real veterinary technician job duties here.
Many thanks for sharing Andrea at veterinarytechnicianguide.com
Hey all, how was your weekend?
I spent yesterday getting to know my baby cousin. I loved every minute of it, cos for some reason I got even more cuddles, belly rubs and praise than normal. It seemed like everytime nanny or mummy held him, I got extra attention from grampy. We even took a nice walk, and I got to make some new friends . It was a win-win. I did run and hide when he started crying though, I couldn’t handle that!
All in all it was a good day:-) Did you make any new friends this weekend?
As you know, everyday I meet my buddy Bella for fun in the park. We wrestle and chase and generally have a great time together.
Bella, as you can see, is a GSD so I was interested to see this infographic by Shepped.com which gives some info about Shepherd’s and popular breed mixes, most of which I’ve never heard of. But I particularly like the Shug! What’s your favourite mix?
