I hope you all had a happy valentines day, I had so much fun as I was allowed the envelopes and I helped master unwrap his present, mistress had flowers so I was not allowed to help unwrap them! I do like helping unwrap cards and presents it makes it so much fun for me and makes me really feel part of the family.
Today I had the most exciting time, it was such fun. Firstly I met up with 3 other dogs that I have met before and we all got in to the back of a van, yes I know me that hates going in cars/vans! We set off for a nearby hill to go for a wonderful walk, unfortunately it was misty, well so Mistress told me, I don’t know what mist is. There were lots of lovely new smells and I walked along with my new friends without any problems. It was very muddy after a lot of rain last night and I almost pulled mistress over, such fun! After our walk we had to get back in the van to return home and I jumped straight in which took mistress a bit by surprise and then I even settled down and had a bit of a sleep on the way home. It was all such fun.
We have had snow! not much but enough to have a bit of fun. Last year was really the first year I learned to enjoy snow, although I am still not happy when the snow lands on my ears! Mistress took me for a lovely long walk today and we had such fun seeing the tracks in the snow and looking at the beautiful views. Mistress was a bit cross when I decided to set off after a pheasant down hill! She mumbled something about it would have been alright if she had a snowboard, I don’t know what she was on about but at least she stayed upright. I was not so sure about having my feet washed when we came home as mistress thought I may have got some salt off the roads, mind you as I stood still it meant I got more treats!
Brrrrrr it is cold outside at the moment my ‘paw’ feet are so cold, I think I should have been given some booties for Christmas by master said ‘proper’ dogs don’t wear booties! I am enjoying the winter walks they are longer walks and we have had some beautiful sunny days. I am used to not working at the moment and I think that I am going to have a problem getting back in to work this week-end but we are full with lots of people going to the races at Cheltenham. I think they may get a bit cold! Oh well better get back to my sofa as it is in the sun so I will be warm and snug.
Happy new year everyone, I hope you all had a good time over the Christmas and new year season. I was such a lucky dog with lots of new toys to play with and I have not broken any of them yet and still play with most of them. My bed is soooooo comfy I like bed time as I curl up in the cosy soft bed with the high sides keeping out draughts. Since I have had my new bed I have not been near my other on in the corner of the kitchen so it shows that this one is a winner! Today was a bit cold outside and I am sorry to announce that master and mistress did not take my hints of booties and a warm coat for walks, seriously, so I had to brave the elements with just my natural feet and own coat! Brrrr it was 0 degrees today but I soon forgot all about it as I enjoyed my walk in the woods. I do like this time of year with lie ins and longer walks, as it is all about me!
I hope you all had a very merry Christmas.
I had a wonderful time with lots of new toys, a new bed and a new collar! How cool is all of that? I was in the dog house again though as I managed to upset everyone by rolling in fox poo in the garden in my new collar. None wanted me to sit next to them and I had to revert to my old collar whilst the new one was scrubbed clean and left to dry! I was given 2 rub downs with special shampoo and water but I still carry a slight aroma, which is great because my new bed no longer smells like a new bed!
Christmas is coming, do you know how I know? well some of my big fans arrived last week with a new toy for me! It was not wrapped but heard it mentioned it was Christmas, it is s sheep that grunts like a pig trouble is I keep forgetting it is my bed and I lie down and grunting starts! I also know Christmas is coming because master told mistress to take me in the kitchen while he walked through with my present that he did not want me to see! I am so excited how many presents do you think I will get, well it is not really the number I get but how many other people get and how many I can help unwrap! I love wrapping paper and helping people unwrap presents. Oh so exciting…Christmas is coming. Hope you all have a good one.
I have been really busy, last week-end some guests came back to see me, BUT I did a silly thing and was so excited I slipped on the sofa as I was barking my welcome and twisted my back, so yet again I had to go and see my vet. I was just not myself and I could not jump and certainly could not curl up in to a tight ball to go to sleep. I did miss the strange guest arriving on Saturday afternoon and so imagine my surprise when on Sunday morning after everyone had had breakfast and I was allowed to help clear breakfast there in front of me was a huge reindeer, eating my biscuits! Well on second thoughts it was not eating my biscuits as it was made of a twigs/wicker but it must have been 4 foot high and standing in my Breakfast room! I did let master and mistress know it was not on as we do not allow pets as I am more than enough for this house. Luckily it left with the guests. My back is now better just in case anyone wondered!
All well again, my paw is back to normal with only a small war scar to show! I was very good when I went to have my staple out, I just sat quietly and looked at mistress while my vet took the staple out. I was even sent home with a bit of spare bandage in case it was needed again but she obviously took her job seriously and did not give me any biscuits for being so good! I will show her! I will loose some of my winter weight that I have put on to keep the cold out and then she will give me a biscuit next time I visit!
I have a paw-ly paw so I am feeling very sorry for my self. I cut my pad on my front paw, not sure how I managed it but at least I had had a wonderful 2 hour walk before hand. Mistress noticed me limping in from the garden so managed to take me to my vet. He , the vet, decided that I needed a stitch. Well I am sorry but didn’t think that a stitch was a good idea so I rolled my eyes at him, so much so he thought my eyes were going to pop out of my head! so he decided to staple me together! I have a very natty bandage on my foot and it is beginning to feel better and I can put more weight on it , BUT do not tell master and mistress as they are being very caring and waiting on me hand and paw. Just a few more bags of chockie drops and I will be fine.
