Blobby Bobby

My favourite Uncle John has been to see me today. I was very excited but he brought some sad news. Bobby is no longer with us. RIP Blobby Bobby. We've had some nice, though slow walks together

Home again

It's good to be back. I was starting to get a bit homesick even with half the family there with me.
Here's a nice picture that sums it all up though for me to remember it all. Sigh.

Last proper day

It's lovely having that Beth and Ed here but there's a few too many legs and feet in our little room for my liking. I'm getting kicked and trodden on quite a lot. I was glad to go out for a walk over the fields to see the sea this morning with the she boss even though it was really windy and rainy. We had a big struggle walking back.
We saw this little fella driving today. It must be different in the countryside cos I'm not even allowed on the floor on the driving side let alone on the seat to drive. I know how to do it though as I've watched loads

I take it all back. None of it's boring. Who should turn up here last night but that Beth and Ed!! How did they find us? What a nice surprise. I hope they stay a bit. They certainly look like they've come to live here for a bit like us.
The she boss tried to take me over the fields to the beach today but I've had enough of walking now. AND she's put that ridiculous coat on me again. I was hoping to audition for the Emperor of Exmoor replacement but I don't stand a chance if that's what I've got to wear. I've been practicing the running and jumping and am pretty good.

Mixed day

This is getting boring now. Same old walk. Dragged out too early. I tried to get out of it today but the he boss put me on the lead so I had to go. I have to admit that it was a nice morning but I'm tired. I'm not as young as I used to be. He always insists on running and I have no choice but to keep up. We had to go all the way down to the beach again. The sea crept up on me when I wasn't looking and nearly got me wet so I tried to go back home again then but the he boss was having none of it.

It got better later when we all went for a walk so no running. We found a really good beach and had it to ourselves for a while for a rest. I explored a big hole in the walls while I was there too. We went for a long long way then the she boss gave me a pig's ear like Ed used to give me for a reward so it was all worth it. 

This is the other thing the she boss has bought me. Is she having a laugh? I know she said she might get me a new winter coat but this?! I quite like the blue but I'd get mocked off my field by the other dogs. I think I might see what it tastes like sometime when she's not looking

Day 4

Last night was really really windy and the he and she boss decided we were going for ANOTHER walk really really late. I must say it was pretty good fun. Not like this morning when it was still windy but rainy too and there was a funny noise happening out in the sea. I didn't want to go out but the she boss went off up the field so I thought I better follow her to make sure nothing happened to her. This is what it was like out of our window this morning. Bit different to yesterday.I've been on 2 beaches for some good run arounds. I liked the second one especially cos the waves were really big and noisy. I didn't go too close but it gave me lots of energy.
 Tonight there's more noises and flashy bangy things but they haven't lasted long

Autumn morning

This is what it was like when the she boss took me for a walk bright and early. Can you see the moon? It was lovely but we didn't get as far as the beach this time. I missed the sand in my toes but we did some of that later. Today I've had 2 walks! So far.
It's very cosy in our little house and the lady who called round and looks after the pretty cat is very kind. The she boss has had a really good fire going to keep us warm nearly all the time since we've been here.
The he boss has had one of those days when there are parcels to get out of paper. I like all the paper but some of his things smelt like they'll taste nice

Day 2 of my holiday

Day 2 but first real day. It's looking good. This is me walking over the field with the he boss. I remember it all now...

 And this is me after I'd walked over the field, down the cliff, along the beach, back up the cliff, over the field ......

Then we went to a shop and the he and she boss got lots of lovely food. I'm hoping there'll be some tasty leftovers like from the fish n chips last night.
Then we went back and did all the walk again but took the she boss as well. I'm thinking I might be feeling my age if this keeps up for too many days. I'm looking a bit scared cos I could smell scary cows not too far away. I was ready for them.
We walked all the way to the end of the country and didn't fall off. 

And this is our house. Ours is the little one but it's not as little as it looks. In fact it's just right for us all. Don't you think I manage quite an arty shot here?

I'm on holiday! The she and he boss have brought me to the seaside. It's one I've been to before and I remember last time I brought that Beth and Sammy and the sun shone all the time. We didn't get here till it was nearly dark this time but I still had a good run around on the beach and checked it all out. I found a little plover having a sleep in the sea weed but I was very kind and didn't scare it away. There's a cat here who's been to see me but he's a bit scared. Here's a picture of me on the beach and I'll try and get the she boss to do a picture of the cat cos he's quite a pretty colour and I've never seen one like it before

The she boss has been on holiday again without me and she went to see Sammy who's been freestyling.  I know cos I had lots of real good sniffs around her tonight. I can smell she slept on his floor, ate his weeto's, drank his water and went on lots of trains with him. I wonder if I would have liked it? I would have liked to have seen his house cos I ain't never been there yet.

Black hole

We had a new hole put in our roof up the stairs. It's bigger than the old one and has posh steps which make it easier for the he and she boss to disappear up there. I wasn't allowed in when the man came to do it cos he was scared of me for some reason.
That Beth has tried it out and brought lots of boxes and bags into the house. Today the he and she boss have been up there and brought masses of stuff down. They took some of it away in the car but I don't know what they're going to do with everything else. It's all filling up the garage by the bikes and the place where I eat. I had nowhere to sit and wait for my food tonight.

Half empty or half full?

This is totally unfair. Have you seen this? I get upset when they go out and leave me and I must admit I have a bit of a cry and bark these days but I'm a very happy dog really. I'm always laughing. The she boss keeps telling me to stop when she's trying to talk serious to me.
She's been giving another dog some fuss today. I could smell it on her. It was only a baby dog and I reckon Labradoodle at a guess. A girl one. Shame she didn't bring her home for me to play with.

Exciting day out

I've had a really nice day. The she boss took me on a  904. Well that's what she called it but I'm sure she called it something different like buzz when I went on one before a long time back. It's a bit like the caterpillar train I went on ages ago but bumpier and I was glad I had the she boss's knees to steady myself against. I didn't know where we were going and thought it was going to be boring cos she left me tied up while she went in a shop first and there were lots of other shops too. When she came back we did a bit more walking over a hill but just a road hill, not nice and grassy with rabbits. I had a nice surprise though cos we went to see Uncle Ted. He was pleased to see me and I was really pleased to see him. I did a bit of clearing up for him around his kitchen floor then Aunty Joy came and I went another walk with her and the she boss. This time it was real good and I got to have a brilliant run in Sutton Park. I've been there lots but not for a while. The she boss sat talking and eating for ages with Aunty Joy and I was tied up lonesomely for a while like this but not for too long. It's been really good but I got a bit cold by the fence after running. The she boss is thinking of buying me my own coat for when the very cold weather comes

Monday 4 October 2010


This place has been hectic. We've had so many people living here, Sammy had to stay downstairs with me at night to look after the house and went to sleep on the floor. It was good but there was a lot of going and coming and fro-ing and to-ing. It's all peaceful again now. That Beth stayed up in the hole in the ceiling for ages and brought LOADS of stuff down with her when she came that made me sneeze. I don't know what it all was but I bet that hole's a bit empty now.
This is what happened to the he  boss tonight:
He looks quite happy about it but I wouldn't have been if I was there. I'm not allowed to push people off our furniture. Or even get up there except for the occasional cuddle. Well!
