Well I have had lots of lovely walks in the spring weather, they have also been very muddy walks, mistress cannot understand how I get mud in my ears! I will keep that secret to myself as it means extra attention when getting it out! The other day I did have a shock, you know that I do not get on with other dogs, and mistress tries her hardest to avoid other dogs….well we were walking along the other day, along the snowshill road and suddenly there were loads of dogs arriving….mistress said it was ‘The Hounds’ as if I knew what that meant! Well we went to the side and I sat tight and this one obviously thought I looked nice so came charging along to see me but luckily the people with ‘The Hounds’ shouted and this dog was so good it immediately returned to its place in the pack. The dogs all ran past me and I was fine, well I got a couple of biscuits for being so good so that was fine!

It has gone cold again, my poor feet get so cold.
Mistress went away for a couple of days so I had a week-end with master. The week-end went Ok, I was fed on time and had a walk each day but I did feel that I could have had more tummy tickles and I did not want to watch ALL the Rugby matches on the TV! I think over time I could train him up to be a really good master with more attention on me!

There has been so much more mud this year, with all the rain. Mistress has tried her best at taking me for nice walks but it is difficult as everywhere has more mud! The other day I was walking down a steep hill and mistress yelled out so I stopped still, she had fallen flat on her back and had let go of my lead so I duly went back to check she was OK, there was mud all over her back and it even ended up on my head! After that I went steady but the grass is very slippery so even I slip. What I hate most is getting home and having to be toweled dry and then sit on a towel on my bed until I am really dry, the only upside is once I am dry I get brushed and then get a treat!
I have been having great birthday celebrations, well not my birthday obviously, but I have helped mistress with her birthday celebrations. Firstly I helped open all the presents and cards, boy was the kitchen floor a mess but I had so much fun, and as we all know it is all about me! Then to celebrate mistress took me for a walk up to the tower, it was pretty misty but I did see several pheasants and almost pulled mistress over several times! Then I had a small snooze while drying off before being fed my dinner, what a great day it has been. I like birthday celebrations, anyone else got one coming up who needs me to help with it?
Belated happy Christmas everyone. I have been so busy looking after master and mistress and being nurse Nixie. The unfortunate thing was as neither owner wanted to eat…I had very few scraps of extra food, I would have thought as a thank you for being a caring nurse Nixie I would have been showered with more food as a thank you. I was however spoilt rotten with new toys, Oh so many and all such fun.
I have decided I love snow, it makes walking such fun. We had lots of snow this week and when mistress took me for a walk on Tuesday we went on one of my favourite walks and it was so deep I had to leap everywhere! The snow was up to my tummy so my legs had to work sooo hard. Mistress kept stopping to take loads of pictures and so I had a bit of a break but we had such fun in the snow. It seems to me that the smells are so much more exciting and I am sure there were mice beneath my feet so I kept doing Tigger jumps which made mistress laugh.

I have decided what I would like for Christmas, socks. The other day we went for a walk and my pads got very cold on the frozen ground and then a bit later they got really muddy so I think that a set of paw socks would be really cosey! Mistress just laughed at the thought but when her and master went in to a shop the other day she pointed them out, master laughed! I do love to keep my paws clean so not sure that they would stay on very long if I had a set…maybe I would prefer chocolate drops instead of socks.
We are getting in to the swing of Christmas, I am a Christmas helper, and I know it is still November but last Friday was Broadway’s first, of 2 , late night shopping’s. We were full with lovely guests who all loved me, well that is normal! Mistress ran around getting some festive decorations up and a few lights up, I seemed to get in the way most of the time, according to HER!, but I did grab my toy reindeer as I was trying to be a Christmas helper, I may have left it on the floor to be tripped over a few times but I was helping. We have the second late night shopping this Friday with some returning guests which is always fun.
Master and mistress have been away so I have not managed to let you know what I have been up to. My foster Mum and Dad moved in to give me 5 star treatment, as I justly deserve! Several walks a day and hourly tummy tickles, what heaven! That has all finished now and we are back to the one walk a day but it is nice to see master and mister home safely. They brought me home a present, I have already pulled the eye out but I love it, It is a new toy, a lovely cuddly elephant, or ‘thumpy’ as master calls it. It is always fun having a new toy as I throw it around and snuggle up to it when I
Mistress and I went for a very wet walk last week, first really wet walk for month but boy was it a wet walk. I had to go in the car! we went up to Dover’s Hill, IN A CAR!!! I was very quiet all the way and then when we got out the other end it was all misty and we could not see a thing, but that did not worry me, so many new smells. I ran, I zigged and I zagged, oh it was such fun. There were loads of squirrels collecting sweet chestnuts and they were teasing me running this way and that way, oh mistress did laugh and she said something about ‘I should have gone to specsavers’ I have no idea what she meant!
We also had some guests who seemed to like me, although I actually think they were ‘cat people’, but they arrived with a plant for mistress and a tube for me, it was the best tube I had had all week but it did not lasy long!
