Good manners


I said I'd put a picture of me waiting politely and here it is (see 22nd December)

The ups and downs of a dog's life


Today had it's fantastic times and it's pretty awful times. Never mind all this Christmas paper stuff, the best thing was going out today to Sutton Park with lots of my favourite people and being free to chase squirrels and rabbits to my heart's content. I even quite enjoyed the little people who were with us for a while.

Just when I thought life couldn't get any better, it turned out I was right and it got a whole lot worse. Everyone went in out of the cold to a nice warm big house and left me tied outside to shiver and cry.
A few people stopped and had a bit of sympathy but not the people who mattered. I had a look through the window and this is what some of them looked like. The only consolation for me is that at least they didn't look as though they were enjoying themselves much without me. They should have either let me in or I would have let them all in round at my house and made them a cup of tea or something. They might have at least laughed a bit there.

Christmas holiday

Hey! I've just had a fantastic Christmas paper 2 days at Gary Cat's house. It was nice of him to invite me over to share it all with him. All, that is except the tasty leftovers which he seemed to have priority over. If he had that many manners, he would have given me first refusal on them. Never mind, I did manage to nick a fair bit of his other dinner he was leaving around. It was kind of that Beth and Ed to let us all go and sleep there all night and take me for a walk. I would have like best to have gone to those big woods with Ed but that didn't happen this time. Maybe we just weren't there long enough.

Extra helpings

I don't know why I didn't think of this before. I am always very polite and sit down in the sun lounge when it's food time to remind them and wait nicely. (Picture to follow maybe). I know it's time for my food once everyone else has eaten. Don't ask me why I have to have mine last but that's just the way it is.
It's been very cold outside so yesterday, when the she boss came out for something, I sat down anyway and she filled my dish up for me. What she didn't know was that the he boss has already given me my food so I got another helping. I did it again today and the same thing happened. This is good.
I've just never bothered to sit before once I've had food but now I know they're that stupid, I think I'll keep that up. I can afford to put some weight on with all my runnning around my field. Unlike some who live in this house, huh? Mentioning no names like.

Cold

I love this crisp whitiness. It makes the smells really clear and colourful. I've been in my field and to Sutton Park lots with the he and she boss and everytime I go, it all makes different pictures in my head at the moment. So many, I can't keep up with them. Only thing is, these days are getting very little.

Uncle John

Uncle John's been to see me and he stayed ALL evening with me and ate some dinner here. It was great. I like Uncle John. I'm not so interested in the other person her brought with him but she smelt nice too though

Nearly Christmas, I believe

It worked. I told them they were being boring and now we've got some pretty good lights as well. No tree in the house mind you. I don't know what's happening about that. I like it when there's chocolate I can get at. I'm good at taking the chocolate out and leaving the paper on the tree to make sure it's still a decoration.
That Beth and Ed put some pictures up of theirs and I'm most envious of Gary Cat. http://bethdoodles.blogspot.com/2009/12/our-tree-is-up.html I hope he doesn't wreck it though. You know what cats are like

House full

EVERYONE'S been living here again. And now they've all cleared off. Talk about confusing. We've had Sammy and that Beth who stayed and kept me company all day. Even thefriendPeter came and ate some of our food here. I haven't seen him in ages. Now they've all gone. Perhaps they've gone back to see Ed and Abimaro cos they weren't around and I haven't seen them in a while either. I hope they're OK. And how about Gary Cat? I still quite miss him. It would be good to go and spend some time chilling with him again too.
Lots of houses around here have got their pretty lights in the window again so that time with all the paper must be coming up. I don't know what's going on here cos there's no sign of anything. I better get on to them.

Walkies

The she boss doesn't take me over my favourite Malvern hills any more since she's been walking funny and I really miss it. I'm wondering if I could sneak myself onto the train every now and then and tag on to someone else's walk like this fella: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/north_yorkshire/8411704.stm I know the trains go there cos we've watched them from the top of the hill. He's given me a good idea I reckon

Poos

At risk of embarrassing myself, being a dog, I thought it was about time that I wrote about poos as they play quite an important part of my life according to the he boss. The she boss very kindly clears up anything after me when we're out and about and in my garden although not everyday here. She's pretty convinced that while she's clearing up the garden ones, I'm doing another one (or two) (or three) while she's not looking and she could be right :-) I would go and sit in that little room like they do if they would let me up there and if my legs were a bit longer. The she boss dug out a big hole down the garden a long time back and put what is laughingly called a dog loo in the ground which would be OK but she always puts the lid back on so what's a dog supposed to do to be helpful. They can't really blame me when they end up clearing up after me can they?
PS At least there are no pictures with this blog!!

Dinner time


I'm not supposed to be in the room when people are eating but sometimes, I happen to be there when the food comes in. If I stay very quiet, tucked in behind the big chair by the big cosy, warm white thing, they don't always notice me. The trouble comes when I want to get out of the room. That's when I try and tiptoe out and hope they don't see me. I don't think they do although I have heard the she boss whisper something like "Don't look down now" so perhaps they're just pretending. I hear all these lights everyone's putting up is something to do with pretending there's a big red man called Father Christmas. People eh. You wouldn't catch me lying like that.

Poorliness

The she boss is not very well. I can tell cos she's really quiet and is just sitting sometimes instead of sitting and doing things. And when she's doing standing up things, like today when she's pushing the noisy sucky thing around, she's doing it slow.
She's been like this for a few days now on and off. I tried it myself the other night when my new friend, Sam was round. It's easy. I just stood in the middle of the room for a while looking sad. The she boss gave me a lovely cuddle. She even let me on her lap on the best armchair and I had a nice little snooze. I forgot to keep it up the next morning though so it was business as usual. I will do it again sometime though cos it's a good way of getting extra fuss and attention.
I hope the she boss is better soon. I don't like things being different.

Thought provoking reading

The she boss has brought me a book home. At least, I think it was intended for me as it's about dogs and she left it where I could look at it. Only thing is, I think it would be more use to her and/or the he boss as it's called How to Train a Superdog. The confusing thing to me is that I'm already superior to super.
The other book I saw was much more interesting to me (although I do like the dog pictures). It's all about thunks and I like those. How about this one I made up? If you forget to put the dot on an i, is it still an i? What d'you thunk of that then?

Starlings
