old friends

I am looking forward to seeing some old friends this week end, well they are not THAT old! haha. I have not seen them for maybe 3 years but they have promised lots of tummy tickles which are hopefully for me and not master! I am just a bit worried that they may notice that I have put on a bit of weight, hopefully they will not mention it? I am also looking a bit older than when they last say me but again hopefully they will be polite and will not laugh! I think I will get mistress to get the black shoe polish out to hide the grey hairs and if I stretch they may not see the extra pounds! Anyway I am looking forward to seeing them again and entertaining them with all my stories, although I do believe they may read this as they seem to know that I have had tummy tickles from other friends.

So embarrassing

We are in embarrassing season again! Really mistress is so embarrassing, she thinks it is so funny to leap around jumping up to try and catch leaves that are being blown off the trees, SHE says it is lucky if she catches them, I say that it is a miracle that she does not fall and brake something! Then what is even worse is the delight she has in dragging her feet through the piles on leaves on the ground, my mum always told me to pick up my feet, she would not have been impressed with mistress! well she might have been with the love and attention I get but not with all the embarrassment she gives me!

Autumn is here, the apples are getting larger so they are easier to bring down the garden and into the house! Mistress is trying to make apple jelly and it is not setting, I think if she added a few of my special apples it would set nicely but she takes objection to the teeth mark and nibbles skin, it all goes in a big pot I am sure none will notice! Last week I was busy helping Jess and Paul dig the 2 new flower beds, I had great fun as they did not shout at me as mistress does! I had such fun helping them. Now autumn is here I am getting better walks  as mistress loves kicking up the leaves so we often go in the woods but I do not like the hanging around as she picks up cones and conkers.

I miss my friendly guests none seems to like me at the moment and some friends of mine wrote  a review about me ( oh and windrush) and their traveler tip was to bring dog food with them! What good friends they were!

I’m still here!

I’m still here at Windrush House so please no more crying emojis. My German friends went without me, I think they were relieved as mistress did tell them about my car sickness problem, maybe they will come back and visit me in the future. I would have felt bad when I still had to do work here. I have been sooo busy again welcoming new friends and seeing old friends returning.

I am loving the autumn fruits and am so spoilt as which one to retrieve and take in to the kitchen for mistress, there are plums from next doors tree, crab apples (they roll around really well!) eating apples (they go off really quickly) or cooking apples (they are fun as they always squirt sour juice at me!) . Which ever I take in the kitchen for mistress I have to show it off, take the stalk out with my teeth, holding the fruit between my paws and then jump around it barking! After a while I get bored with it so leave it for people to fall over and go and get another one!

But don’t worry I’m still here and will be hopefully for a while!

I’m packed up

I’m packed up and have one of my toys with me ready to go to a new home in Germany! my 4 new friends said that they wanted me to go home with them and as they LOVE me so much and I wouldn’t be missed here, I have packed moo and some biscuits for the trip and I am going…. the only problem would be if mistress says something about my car sickness and terror of going in a car if she keeps quiet I think I can get away with it and we would be outside Broadway before they realized! I’m packed up with a few items and hopefully master and mistress will send on my other toys, if they can get a shipping container sorted to take them all. I do have one problem though a Canadian lady arrived last night and she LOVE’s me and couldn’t wait to meet me and if I go I will not have done my job for her!

New friends

I have 4 new friends, they are staying with us for 4 days and they LOVE ME! I try to say hello each evening and they always want to see me and tickle my tummy, I am in heaven! My new friends have lots of exciting new smells on them when they return after theirs days out walking so I have to take time to check out if they have seen any other dogs. I also frisk them to see if they have biscuits on them, so far they haven’t! but I live in hope and hope that they do not listen to mistress who keeps telling people I have had far too many biscuits!

Well hello there, sorry I have not written for ages but I have been soooo busy, I just have not stopped doing guest relations and food sampling it has been really busy. I have met some lovely new friends who will hopefully return to see me again. I have also had people staying who are scared of dogs ? they had not met me or that fear would not have been there. Hopefully the cooler weather will mean I go back to longer walks again but mistress is so slow as she does a magpie impression of picking up all sorts of things, conkers, fir cones, beech nuts, ferns etc, I do not mind the blackberry picking as I get to sample how ripe they are! The other day master was given a large paper bag to get rid of ..well I sneakily grabbed it off him and whilst master and mistress were laughing at how quick I was, it was gone! I was just helping make sure it was ideal size for the recycling bin oops bit of a mess!

Ouch!, I managed to get stung by a stripy buzzy thing! Mistress says she thought it was a bee as she said she removed the sting. It not only happened once but twice! and it was on the same place…no not my big bum, it was on my muzzle, probably something to do with me chasing the flying things! Master and mistress keep telling me not to chase and snap at the buzzy things but I cannot seem to help myself even when I get an ouch! trouble is they keep going after the lovely apples I keep bringing in from the garden.

Mud, mud is back, no not the group, mud to paddle in. At last we have had some rain so there are puddles for me to paddle in and get muddy. Mistress says that I could walk round them but then that would not be fun would it? I have been very busy again this week-end with guests, lots of replacement dog therapy for people who have left dogs and cats at home

, I even managed to help one couple who had left 3 cats at home!

They are back

They are back, master and mistress have come back after their short break away from me! Foster mum and Dad stayed here to look after me and I was spoilt again! Master said he had got me a present but it was in his case, the one that seemed to be delayed, well the case finally arrived yesterday and still no gift for me! I am back to being walked in the early morning, because of the heat and I love getting the first scents of the rabbits and deer, it is so exciting!

I have been doing a lot of guest relation duties over the week-end, everyone loves me as normal!
