I have been so busy this week we had 5 lovely guests from Norway for 4 nights and of course they loved me, each evening I would join them in the garden while they had a cold drink before heading off to eat.
Now we have more guests who also love me and I was busy checking everything was OK for them whilst mistress was busy getting a pot of coffee and some chocolate cake for them.
I am still getting better I went off to see my vet, very special appointment as he was not seeing any other patients just ME! I seem to be making a recovery although nobody really knows what was wrong with me. I am coming off the drugs slowly which is OK but it means that I get less treats concealing the tablets! I get so excited when the tablets are got ready for me that I trip everyone over which sometimes means that they extra bits on the floor. I happy to still be getting better as it means I can go for longer walks again. Thank you to my lovely vet for making me feel better.

I have more new friends and they ‘LOVE’ me. They just fell in love with me… or they were missing their 5 rescue dogs left at home while they were here walking in the Cotswolds. They tickled my tummy and made such a fuss of me it was great and even better now I am feeling better as now I can roll on my back without it hurting, so therefore more tummy tickles! Maybe they will come back and see me again? I have met lots of new people this week, a couple of them were not too keen on me but the majority liked me and some really enjoyed my business card.
Well I am sorry I have not written for a while as I have been a bit under the weather but I am now beginning to feel better. I went along to my vet and he said that I seemed to be doing OK but now I have to be weaned off the steroids, master keeps calling me a junkie dog as I get so excited at having my tablets as they are always in a wonderful treat. I have even lost a little weight, the vet said is muscle as I have not been able to go on long walks. Mistress said the moment she knew I was feeling better was when I helpfully got the post for her!
As some of you will know I have not been too well, no one is quite sure what is wrong with me but it seems like I have got a trapped nerve in my neck. I am on lots of pills, master says I rattle! but I am trying to put a brave face on it all just not quite the happy chappie I normally am! As I am not allowed to go for long walks , I need to rest to cheer me up, mistress decided we would go and walk in to the bluebell wood. I was very tired afterwards but it was a beautiful sight that we both enjoy each year. Bluebells just gently swaying in the breeze, and so good as a back drop for my portrait!
Hope everyone is looking forward to Easter, I am as I have the dog treats that are made of dog chocolate to eat on Sunday. I am also wondering if I could have a new bed?..I know I got a new bed for Christmas but I have seen this in a picture mistress showed me and I feel it is most fitting for a dog of my standing, well lying if you see what I mean! The trouble is it is rather expensive and I think master will say no way, mind you it does not look very comfy but I would look wonderful in it!
Oh I am having the best time at the moment. As I told you I was given some Easter chocolate dog treats by guests which I have to wait till Easter for, then Granny sent across some treats and I spied a bouncy ball which I think Granny has sent me for an easter treat. Last week I also made a new friend, well I am always making new friends than are humans…but this was a doggy friend. It was a very bouncy dog and I was not sure at first , how to play with her but she kept bouncing so we ran round the garden at speed and then played ‘rolling over and nibbling’, it was exhausting but hopefully she will be back next month. I cant wait!
I am such a spoilt doggie! well you have probably worked that out by now!
Today some new guests arrived and they had read my blog and felt that I may be missing out at Easter on Chocolate treats so they had made a special trip to a pet shop to find me some Chocolate (doggie friendly) Easter treats, how kind is that? I have tried one already, well it would have been so rude not too. I think I may try and persuade mistress that they may go off before Easter as they are now opened and must be eaten within three days, do you think she will believe me? I cant wait till Easter maybe master will buy me my own Easter egg?

Life is fun at the moment, I have been on 3 wonderful walks so far this week and it is only Thursday! Last week I had several short walk days as Mistress had stuff to do, she spent all of Friday on a steam train and then they went out in the evening! This week has been fun though and today I went off in a van again and with my 3 friends and we did a 3 hour walk on Bredon Hill again. The weather has been lovely so I have also been helping in the garden. Mistress and Master got their lawn mowers out and I helped by…yes you have guessed it, sitting just where they wanted to cut the lawn eating a branch which I then left on the lawn to see if the mower would spit it out! Such fun!
Might bite, no not me! I won’t bite! This is the horse, Might bite, that mistress put money on in the gold cup, for me as she said it was the one that suited me the most! It did not win! so all the chocky drops I invested in it are lost ! Mistress also put money on for master and his horse won so master said he would get some chocky drops for me with his winnings! Mistress has worried me as she says that with all this Brexit going on there may be a national shortage of chocky drops so if I could ask everyone to stock pile a couple of bags for me so that I will not go without! I had a lovely gold cup week with returning guests all delighted to see me and I even checked out a couple of new hats that were on the scene. Thanks to all of them and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.
