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
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?
As you know, I’m a daddy’s girl and I love nothing better than some daddy-daughter playtime 🙂
Do you like playing with your daddy too?
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?
The other day I met some of Bacon’s British cousins. And they were so friendly and eager to chat, unfortunately my Pig is a bit rusty so we didn’t get beyond the pleasantries.
Mummy’s pictures aren’t great, but hopefully you can see them. I just love making new friends. Have you made any unusual friends lately?
Daddy can’t stop laughing at me for not catching this rabbit. But it’s not about the catching, it’s about the chase! Don’t you agree?
I’m so late posting about this, but recently I was invited to share my training tips on Animal Health along with other bloggers, and the post is now live: http://animal-health.co.uk/news/dog-training-tips-uk.html
This post is a great resource for new dog owners, I hope you will get a chance to stop by and take a read.
I was struggling to find a way of illustrating this post, so here’s an early pic of me on an early walk.
What is your top training tip for new pet owners?
