More new friends

Aaaah I'm so glad that the he and she boss chose to adopt me and have me live with them. I think they're glad as well. It's such a nice place to be and they have such interesting people come round. We had two more new ones today. I don't know where they keep finding them. They don't seem to be random anybodies as they usually know them themselves - it's just me that doesn't. These 2 seemed to have come in the middle of a journey to eat our food and use our settees but none of us minded and Sammy came to say hello to them as well. Even he seemed to know them. I think their names were Cameron and Jenny or something. He was BIG! Not like my family. I think they liked me but they didn't send any food my way or even leave any tasty scraps.
The he and she boss went out somewhere tonight and came back smelling of another dog. It was a he dog by the tone of it and I'm glad they didn't take me. These boys can be such a nuisance - getting ideas above their station, and they don't take the hint from me.

She's a good 'un, my she boss - she understands my language. The last 2 nights, the he boss has been over the field for a walk but if he thought I was going, he had another think coming! The steps were completely overgrown with things that stung and prickled and I've got a very sensitive nose, don't you know. He was most put out that he'd been all the way round the field while I stood by the garden gate.
The she boss knew what it was about and had time today to chop the stuff back. That's better. We had a good walk to night to make up for lost time. I'll put a video to show you the field on here sometime when it's a nice day (and light)

New friends

I made some new friends yesterday. Someone called Ben and Michelle came to meet me and liked me (phew) and I liked them (PHEW). As well as lots of talking, they made alot of fuss of me so it was good all round.
The only thing I wasn't sure about was the conversation I heard about dogs giving blood away. It seems the idea is to help other dogs but I don't like the sound of it. I kept out of the room for that one as I don't want them looking at me and thinking it would be a good thing for me to do. I think I'm due for my anual visit to the vet but I'm making sure I don't remind anyone.

I've been lulled into a false sense of security. All my fears were realised this week. I don't know if I'm coming or going. First the he boss didn't come home one night then the next day the she boss didn't. Luckily Sammy was still in and out and the he boss reappeared the second night. Boy was I glad to see him and even happier when she boss came back tonight especially as she's the only one I can rely on to remember I need food. Yes, I missed a meal again while she wasn't here. You just can't get the staff

I had a nice surprise last night. The she boss was going out so I snuck out with her for the ride and to see what she was up to and guess where we ended up?! My friend Bobby's. I even went in to say hello but she's getting on a bit now and couldn't be bothered to move out of her bed. Her he boss is always pleased to see me though and we had a good laugh together

You know that box with the interesting white bits in that came a couple of days ago? Well it's been up on a chair since it came until today when they kindly put it on the floor so I could see if there was anything I might want. Beth had been here and had already opened a packet of nice chocolate things, think they were called TimTams or something. Anyway, seeing as that packet had already been opened, I thought I'd finish what had been started - I don't mind sharing and taking second place - so I ate the other six out of the packet. Well Beth had eaten 3 and she was only passing through so I thought 6 when I'm the one who lives here was reasonable. It seems it was a misunderstanding though as no one seems very happy about me eating them. Oh dear, in the dog house again

I must have got the wrong end of the stick. The she boss is showing no signs of going away but did take me back to Malvern Hills today. We had a fab time although it would have been nice to have gone with some other people to have more variety of scraps at lunchtime.
We had a couple of soakings which I don't like at all. It was VERY windy for a while too which is even worse. It worries me and I have to keep checking that the she boss is still there on the top of the hills. You never know what might happen in these big gusts. Also, it goes down my ears. It's alright for people, they put things over their heads to keep the wind out of their ears. There should be something for dogs too. Perhaps the friend Peter could come up with something - he's always having bright ideas. If I had floppy ears like labradors or spaniels then it wouldn't be a problem but I've got ears made for hearing.
There were alot of people there today - far too crowded. It meant that I was on the lead for a lot of it as some of the other dogs are a bit of a nuisance. Little pests. I don't know if it is my imagination but there seemed to be a disproportionate (big word eh?!) amount of men with white beards there today. Perhaps it's because they're the ones most likely to brave it when it's windy.
There's no grass like Malvern grass for having a good roll and scratch on either. Feel much better.


Something's going on. It's not Saturday and the she boss is cleaning. I found an interesting thing on the floor that matched the noisy cleaner thing and it looked good for chewing so I did. I don't think I was supposed to because it didn't turn into a fun game when the she boss saw me.
I'm sure I've heard her saying something about going away. She better not because the others are bound to forget to feed me. I'm keeping a close eye and I haven't left her side yet today.
A man's brought a big box for us today. When the she boss opened it, there were LOADS of soft white things in there so I nicked one of those to see what it tasted like. It wasn't very nice really but seeing as the she boss was trying to get it back, I thought it must be worth eating. 1 down, 632 to go!

Life in general

I haven't written for a bit have I? Mainly because I haven't had much to write about. Life's been very quiet for me because the bosses seem to have been out a lot. I know the she boss wanted to take me with them on Saturday but the he boss wouldn't let her. Grrrr. I turns out I would have got very wet and cold though and I hate that so better off in the warm. At least I had a good walk when they got back.
I've had some visitors. Blobby Bobby's he boss came to see me. That caused me great excitement as he enjoys a good game and even came out in the garden with me. The friend Peter came again yesterday for a while and I had a nice cuddle on the she boss's lap while he was here. I haven't done that for a while and forgot how cosy it is.
Today, 2 men came who I thought were going to be good fun but then they both disappeared up a ladder on to the roof for hours. Where's the fun in that? I had to keep out of the way as well because all this stuff kept falling down into the back garden. Don't these people know how dangerous they can be to us gentle dogs? They were nice to me when they were down though. I don't know what they were doing up there. I can't see much different.
And now, Candice has come to see me. I haven't seen her for ages but all she seems to be doing is talking to the he boss. I thought she'd come to see me!

Car rides

Hey, have you seen this big advert on the streets? Something to do with hearts. I was driving in the car when I saw this HUGE picture of a man cleaning his car - with a dog!!!!!!!! Mind you, he was only an excuse for a dog - one of those little yappy things although quite cute. I don't know how he was standing for that. You wouldn't catch me. I s'pose I wouldn't have enough fur to make it worthwhile so I'm probably pretty safe. It could be an alternative way of having a bath but I'm not sure which is worse really. Mmmmm

Home days

Here's a how'd ye do. The bosses were both at home today and you'd never believe what they did. They were pulling paper off the walls! I know I like it to eat but even I couldn't keep up with that. I was a bit worried by this strange behaviour and wasn't sure if I'd get the blame somehow so I watched from the safety of under the table. When they'd done that, they put a load more paper! Crazy if you ask me.
They did some stuff in the garden as well which is always good for entertainment. They bought me this naff toy for Christmas that I had hidden under a bush but the she boss found it today. There she was, trying to get me to play with it again. Can't they get the message - I DON'T LIKE IT!

Little people

We had a different sort of visitor yesterday - a little person. I'm not too sure about them. I'm not always sure about the normal sized people for that matter but the little ones do unpredictable things and make unexpected noises. The she boss had this one on her lap and carried it about a bit so I thought I better keep close by in case it did anything dangerous to her. It was quite well behaved though and after a while, they sent me outside. I didn't mind cos I had a tasty chew for a treat.
We've had another brill walk today. There weren't many people around and not many roads so I was off the lead for most of it having a good nose around. I had an unexpected bath when I went for a drink and it was deeper than I thought. It will save me having one at home for a while although at least they're warm. These are some animals we met:

We met a scruffy little dog who kept coming after me for a sniff but cleared off when I told him where to go. He didn't understand the he and she boss but he certainly understood me!

Eggs is eggs to be sure

They gave me an egg today with my food - a whole one, not cooked or shelled. Mmm. Not too sure. I've had one before but I've got to be in the mood. They're best eaten by nibbling a hole, then licking out the inside. Even better if they gave me a straw. Sometimes I'll eat the shell as well but again, I have to be in the mood. Or very hungry maybe
