I had to go to the vet this week for my booster injection, I don’t like going to the vet, they are very nice to me but I am a real baby. Mistress got them to check my ears, well I squealed like a little pig and the vet had hardly even lifted my ear, there was nothing wrong with my ears but I don’t like going to the vet. I had my injection and was weighed…..I have put on weight so I have to go on a diet again! I told you I don’t like going to the vet, even if they do give me biscuits and tell me to loose weight.
Mistress let me outside this morning at 6.20am ish and lo and behold there was a black and white cat wandering down the lawn. I could not believe my eyes the cheek of a cat walking along as if it was its garden! well I was not having that so I was off like a shot, growling and barking as I went that told it!, off the cat scampered with me in hot pursuit. The trouble is during the pursuit I lost my name tag (jingly jangly) so mistress is not happy as she will now have to go and get another one made.
I had another photoshoot on the walk yesterday, mistress says that I look so pretty with the borage flowers , I am not sure that I like them as all the bees visit the flowers and buzz at my ears, mistress laughed at how fast I walked through the crop so that I would not be buzzed!

I have more fans! I have been busy again being a B&B dog and it has created more fans. We had some familiar faces coming back to see us which is always nice, although I am not so happy with the ‘Oh she has grown!’ phrase I keep hearing, mistress is very rude and says ‘yes outwards!’ that is not funny! We had some lovely Swedish walkers staying with us , I joined them in the garden for afternoon tea ( not because they were eating cake! really) and when they left the following morning they firmly took one of my business cards with them, hopefully they will come back to see me again one day.
I’m fast you can’t catch me! I showed the Spanish children that I’m fast…they could not catch me but they were very persuasive and when I hid under the table they came under with me and coaxed me to give them my squeaky ball. Off I was again running and catching the ball showing them how fast I am. I showed them my trick of drinking from the watering can but they did not seem too impressed.Maybe I will just pop outside again now and show them really how fast I am!
I have been working hard again! All these guests come back to see me and I have to entertain them so it is hard work, master does not understand how tiring it is and how I need extra chocolate drops to keep up my energy. I always try to help the guests as I sit with them in the garden, when they have their welcome up of tea, mistress tells the guests that I do not at cake but the guests always listen to me and I usually end up getting some crumbs off them. The other day I even managed to eat the cake case, well it was a shame to waste the small crumbs stuck on the case!
I am not happy, every time mistress mops the kitchen floor my bed gets taken out , normally it goes in the lobby area by the washing machine, but this time it was thrown in the garden! I know what she is up to, soon it will be under the walnut tree and she will forget to bring it in and I will end up sleeping in the garden! I do show my displeasure each time she moves it by claiming it, no matter where ever she puts it, I sit in it and won’t budge till she is ready to move it back to its rightful place in the kitchen where I can keep an eye on what is going on!
It has been so hot, I don’t think I am made for hot weather. The day starts off well and I rush to find a patch of sunlight either on the terrace of in the sitting room, then it dawns on me that it will be getting hotter and the black haired coat is not ideal. Mistress tries to take me to cooler woodlands for my walk or if we are out in the sun she incorporates a stream I can splash in during my walk. Mistress says it is going to get hotter! help that might mean another bath!
It is that time of year again, so I was informed…bath time, I only had one last year it cannot be bath time again! Mistress says that I smell so much better and my coat has gone all curly, I don’t like it! Why do I have to have a bath I am a dog and I small doggy that should be the end of that!
I have been doing a lot of guest relations and some guests even came back just to see me well, not only me but I was the main attraction obviously!

I hope you are all enjoying this hot weather, I’m not as it is too hot and I keep needing to cool off. Mistress says it is all about my silly colour, black! and I should be a more sensible colour like golden. Still I have been working hard again entertaining various guests with my water bottle trick ( I was showing off!) ball collection and it seems that most of my toys have been dropped at feet in the garden. I had another mention on trip advisor, they said I was a friendly dog! Mistress is kind to me in this hot weather as she knows that I need cooling off, so most of my walks involve water of some kind that I can paddle in. I do love cooling off.
I had a lovely walk this morning running through the buttercups, as it had rained I had a very wet head and lots of pretty yellow petals all over me. I have had extra chocolate drops this week as I mentioned this week as a ‘wonderful dog Nixie’! I have not done much work this week as it seems that the guests have not fallen under my charm, but I do have some special friends coming back to see me for a couple of nights next week and they are going to tell me all about their new puppy, we have seen a photo and they look so cute, even cuter than me! I have been busy in the garden again, collecting sticks and digging up potatoes!
