I am still busy, it has never stopped this year and I have soooo much guests relations to do. I have met some more lovely people and some of my old favourites have been back to see me. I do like to welcome them and then try to help them eat their afternoon tea in the garden, I get really upset if they want to take tea in the lounge, still mistress does allow me to go in once they have gone to check that there are no random crumbs! We had some lovely guests who know me well and I was allowed to sit with them in the lounge….it worked I got to try the legendary lemon drizzle cake! Some of my Belgium friends came to see me and I got more treats and master and mistress had a box of chocolates, we are all so spoilt.
I have been so busy, as always. I have been doing lots of guest relations, trying to fit it in with my sleep rota! As it has been soooo hot mistress has taken me out on lots of early walks which I love as it is fresh and lots of lovely new smells and lots of wildlife, the only problem is that at 11 am I feel that I need another walk and sometimes get a bit whiny whingey which mistress says is very annoying! it is not that I actually want to go out in the hot weather but I just feel that I need more me time! Our guests at the moment are all returnees and all love me, I have been busy helping them finish up their lemon drizzle cake, but don’t tell mistress as she would be cross!
Phew! I am a hot dog…no not a hotdog a HOT Dog, mistress has said I am the wrong colour for this heat. I keep eating ice cubes and mistress takes me for a walk really early in the morning which is great. We see so much early in the morning and lots of lovely new smells but mid morning I want to go again, cant I just have lots of walks each day? The other afternoon, you know the really hot one, mistress thought it would cool me off to lie on the long cool grass under the walnut tree, noooooo I could not lie down when there was bird poo to eat, windfalls to collect and sticks to munch on, I know she means well but it was a silly idea. Hope you all keep chillin.
My accountant came to see me last week, well when I say ‘my accountant I mean the accountant who will be doing my tax and earning when I make the big time. When she first visited a couple of years ago she did not like dogs, well I have won her over and now when she comes to see me I get treats ( well sometimes..)she brought along some sizzling bacon treat last time, mistress and ‘my accountant thought they were rather ‘pongy’ but they were delishe !
I feel better and so mistress is going to take me off the tablets and see how I do. I am still being really busy with lots of people coming back to see me and some of them bringing me presents! It has been very hot so I have only been having short walks but this morning mistress made the effort to give me a proper walk and we went out at 6am oh it is so much fun as we see lots of animals and there are lots of exciting new smells. I do feel so much better.
I am unwell again! Mistress said how nice it was that I was back to normal and them POW i twist/pop whatever it is in my neck/back. Mistress had to ring the vet and spoke to my private vet and it was decided to put me back on painkillers and tablets to reduce swelling. The good news is I am back using the bed I was given for Christmas and I am getting lots of snuggles when I am not doing guest relations work. I was hoping that having a bad back may mean that I could not have my annual bath but i heard mistress saying as it was going to be hot tomorrow it may be the ideal day….I think I will keep my head down and be very quiet and she may forget.
I am still busy doing my guest relations work. So many people for me to entertain, at the moment we have a full house (10 guests) and they all like me so I am still busy as I try to say hello to all of them as they come back from their days out.
2 of my friends came back to visit me, they brought me some healthy dog treats all the way from Germany. I was so excited to see them, the guests and the German food. I feel so European now with my German food. They were yummy and I was allowed them each day. I do hope they come back and see me again soon. this time they invited me to Devon to go on beaches then to go to Germany with them, I was very tempted but I think mistress would miss me and I do have a very important job.
I think some of my friends are returning this week-end, do you remember the 4 lovely German guests who came to stay with us last September, well they are coming back. They LOVED me! everytime they came back they spent about 20 minutes with me in the hall giving me lots of tummy tickles. They invited me to go and stay with them but unfortunately when I wrote that I was going with them some other guests got upset so I had to stay. I hope that they remember me.
I am so excited, this week has been very busy with guests coming and going, a lot were only here for one night as they were walking somewhere new each day. It seems that the notice mistress put on the door asking walkers to remove their walking boots is mostly working and it means I get to check out the boots to smell all the wonderful fields they have walked through. I am on my final week of tablets (hopefully) so I think I am feeling better although I miss all the extra titbits that the tablets are put in, should be watching my waist really! But I am so excited as I now have an Instagram account nixiehound and I already have 50 followers from around the world! So if you have an Instagram account please do follow me, mistress takes photos of me most days…not all flattering but hopefully they may make you smile.
