I’ve just realised I completely forgot to tell you about Bashful’s Christmas present from Santa Paws. He got a pair of skate boards! Because they were a bit little, we fixed them together so he could try them out.
The next step was to try out some ‘sweet jumps’ as Napoleon Dynamite would say. We made a small ramp to see how he got on:
And then he progressed to a longer one:
Check him out in action. But be warned, blink and you’ll miss it!
The weather was horrible yesterday with heavy rain and strong winds, so mummy has had to abandon her trip into the big smoke. We’re only half an hour by train, but as with all British transport, as soon as we have ‘adverse weather conditions’ everything grinds to a halt. And typically our trainline has been plagued with fallen trees on the line which has disrupted the service. But she’s promised to take Bashful in the new year. Instead we took him for a walk in the park. We made him a small rain hat so he didn’t get too wet, but luckily it only drizzled a little and it’s not that windy anymore.
We don’t have many rocks in the park, but I showed him our Newfoundland one:
And also introduced him to the stone turtle:
When we got back we helped mummy ice the christmas cake. She made Bashful a marzipan friend so he wouldn’t get lonely.
But when Bashful wasn’t looking she took a bite out of him – what a meanie!
Guess I’m going to have to think of some way to cheer him up…Maybe he’d like another wash?
Anyway, we’ll be taking a break for a couple of days while we’re at nanny and grampy’s, so have a lovely Christmas from me and Bashful xxx
I think my human daddy’s been listening to too much planet rock lol
