And yet more!!

We caught another one! Me and the she boss are getting expert at these little meeces and their wily ways now. Does anyone want to pay us to catch theirs? The she boss took this one for a drive in the car and came back without it so I don't know where she took it on holiday.
Talking of holidays, the she boss has been packing up food and things for me as though we're probably going AGAIN! This one feels different though. She did me loads of food and put it in a box with all my other stuff - toys, chews, biscuits. Everything. It feels like she might be sending me to live somewhere else. I hope she isn't. I really like it here with my bosses. I don't think I've done anything THAT wrong lately.

I think I've got dographobia. It's been wet for ages but today was nice. Between being wet it was anyway so me and the she boss went for a pretty good walk to make up for lost time. The trouble was, I found it all a bit scary and overwhelming. There were some strange noises and it was all a bit big so I was glad when we headed back home again and I could feel safe.
Home's all a bit strange as well at the moment though with some funny stuff going on. The she and he boss have been putting lots of stuff in boxes and there's nothing left in Sammy's room except his bed! That Beth's room is full of boxes and there's nothing much left in the room I watch for the postman from either. I really don't know what's going on.

And even more mouses!

This time, one got trapped in the mousemane box that the she boss had put out with some nuts in specially for catching meeces so we took it for a walk over my field and helped it move house to the other side.

Well I've just been away for some sort of holiday with the she boss in the flappy house but it was all a bit pants. I think she took me to either give the meeces a break or Hayley who's been painting our house and doesn't like me would you believe!! I don't think it's just me. I think it's all dogs. Whatever, it was a naff holiday. I don't know what got into the she bosses brain thinking we could go where we went. I suppose anything was worth a try once and it should have been nice by that seventh river but the A5 road was a bit of a racket. It's quieter living a mile from Spag Bol like we do. Apart from the rabbits there was no where very interesting for me to go for walks. And it rained. And winded. And rained. And I got very wet especially when I went for a paddle and it was deeper than I thought. It's not often I swim so it's a good job I hadn't forgotten how to.
The picture is of me watching out for rabbits. If you look carefully, you can see me quivering with excitement, sad dog that I am.

One really interesting thing did happen though. Three people arrived with their flappy houses on little boats out of the river and left the same way the next day. The she boss thought that looked like fun but I hope that isn't what she decides to do next with me.
AND I had a really nice new bone to chew that the she boss packed in my luggage. It's got something tasty inside it that I haven't finished yet but am having a good go. You can see it there in the picture. I was having rest from it as I was getting jaw ache.
And we did call and see the friend Peter on the way home and I cleaned his floor for him. He had some real nice bits he'd left there for me.
Our house all looks sparkly clean now Hayley's nearly done as well and it doesn't look like any more mouses have been around while I've been gone

More mousing

The challenge is on. The she boss has put all the things the mouses used to eat on the shelves in boxes that they can't get into now. That means they've got to go somewhere else to find their food. Only trouble is, we didn't think they'd choose the house! I was just settling down for the night, having made sure the he and she boss were safely tucked in when a meecy ran through my kitchen!! I very nearly got him but it was dark and he ran out under the door. The she boss must have heard me and came down to check the mouse hadn't got me and told me I was very clever:-) ~~ (Waggly tail) and then set a little box in the garage which is supposed to catch him for me. It hasn't yet but lets see what tonight brings especially as it's tipping it down with rain and nothing wants to be outside. Certainly not me anyway. Although the he boss went out somewhere on his bike :-s

Champion Mouser

What a week! Last week, on one of those days when the she and he boss were both at home, they decided to have a clear out in the garage. We've got lots of shelves with some pretty boring stuff on and the she boss was cleaning and tidying all those up. It took ages but it got interesting when she picked up one of the boxes and two meeces jumped out. I just saw them as they ran past, too quick for me. She took the box in the garden and another mouse ran out under the bushes. I saved that one for later. She had a bit of a poke around and saw lots of baby meeces so took the box down the garden to put the nest by the field. When she went to take the nest out of the box, ANOTHER mouse ran out! That made 4!! and lots of little pink babies. When we went back to look the next day, they'd all gone. I hope their mummy took them somewhere safe and warm.
Anyway, I decided we shouldn't have any more mices sharing the house with me but wasn't sure how to sort it. Today, as luck would have it, the she boss took me to see that Beth in her new house and she's had a cat called Gary move in with her. Can't think why but I managed to have a chat with him and he gave me some tips. When we came home, I had a look around for those meeces and knew one was behind a box. The she boss came to help me and moved the box a bit. Wahey! That little fella ran out and I got it. Thanks Gary. Your advice worked. I left the she boss to make sure he was properly gone. Now I've got my space back to just me and the he and she boss. Perhaps I can be a hero now :-)

The Fourth Plinth

What would you do? This is me practising but I don't think I would like to sit for an hour although there is a bit of room to move around

Mad bosses

I've just taken the he and she boss out for the day. They are SOOO embarrassing. First we had a good walk to see a windy miller thing which was pretty good especially as it was a stopping place for eating and drinking. There was a man called gayDon up there who apparently thought I looked a nice little black dog but the she boss had to interpret for me cos he only talked on one note. People are usually easy to understand cos they talk in interesting voices.
I'm not sure what was happening in this picture or who was taking who which way. It was generally a bit of a mad walk.

And as for this one. The he boss went off into a red box thing and next thing I knew, he was talking to the she boss on her phone. What was all that about then? He said he wanted to reminisce or something. I didn't understand what the fuss was about. Crazy if you ask me
