It is that that time of year again! no not the clocks going back, no not the nights drawing in, it is the time of year when mistress is silly and wants me to help with catching falling leaves! she says it is good luck to catch one before it hits the ground, I think it is lucky that she does not jump on my paws! She makes such a fool of herself leaping around shout ‘catching leaves’ apparently her last dog played the game with her, well I think it is silly and she has ruined my street cred!I cant wait for this time of year to finish.
They are back, master and mistress have returned home safely, they even brought me home a present of a crocodile…no not a really one but wouldn’t that have been fun? I was looked after by foster Mum and Dad so was thoroughly spoilt. I am glad they are home and I have been following them around in case they decide to go away again! They keep telling me all these stories of big pussy cats that they saw and even some wild dogs! they have likened me to a little elephant but I think I have lost weight while they were away so that is unfair but I am glad they are back.
We have had more returning guests coming back to see me. Some even brought me some yummy treats but I was not allowed to eat them all in the same day! This morning the sun is shinning and I went out for a lovely walk we say a small rabbit who was not very well, but we just watched it and I did not bother it but I wanted to as I do like to say hello to fellow creatures. Lots of conkers and fungi around which mistress kept stopping to look at and admire but I wanted to just enjoy the walk in the woods.
I have been Sooo busy, I think I need a holiday, I am sorry I have not written for ages but so tired. I have been busy entertaining lots of returning guests and some who have remembered that I like cardboard tubes so that was fun, you should have seen mistresses face when I had chewed them up and lefty the bit all over the kitchen floor! She did shout when I headed outside with one so I did bring it back in. I have also been Soo busy entertaining one of my young number one fans who I have not seen for several years but she came back and celebrated her 21st Birthday here with me! I think it was her birthday wish come true, sitting on the floor and playing with me!
I have been busy again with many of my friends coming back to see me and of course making a fuss of me! It is all such fun. This week it was particularly busy with so many guests to greet and keep happy. We had some guests who came back to see me after 4 years! they did mention I had grown but I am taking it as in grown up in behaviour and not sideways as master suggested! Also such fun some guests came back and remembered that I loved cardboard tubes, the extra strong ones from inside foil and cling film, they brought me 2! oh you should have seem my backend wag!such fun!
I think I have lost a little weight, well when I say a little I really do mean a little BUT all loss is good. The reason I think I am thinner is my harness seems a bit looser on me.It seems the diet maybe working, slowly! I can see it when I have lost my weight and become thinner, mistress will be concerned that I will not be warm in the winter so hopefully she will start feeding me up again! Well I can live in a fantasy world can’t I?
We have just had some Italians staying, I was very nice to them but they did not seem to love me like other Italians…then I found out they all had pussy cats at home so they must have thought fussing me would be picked up by their cats when they went home!
I went off to the vet for my check up and injection, it was one of my favourite vets as she has seen me playing in the garden when she visited her parents that stayed here, she thought I was doing ok but that I was a little over weight! So mistress has put me on a diet! I am hungry all the time but mistress says it will be better for me in the long term as my hips cannot take extra weight! just to rub it in mistress baked some chocolate dog biscuits for the guests and she said that I should look that trim!
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.
