Summer weather

Today has been very, very hot for me so I've spent a lot of time down the garden under the tree watching nextdoorTerry. He's made a big hole in our fence and in his fence onto the field. It's quite interesting to watch and sometimes when he's not looking, I go through the gaps and have a look in his garden. It looks a good place to get some chickens or something.
The she boss has gone a bit mad today in the sunshine and turned our garden into a laundry place. At least she didn't wash me as well.

Life's not been too exciting since my flappy house holiday with both she and he boss. Quite a few friends have been to see me but they've come and gone quite quickly. I did go and see Uncle John with the she boss and had a rummage round his garden and did a poo for him in case he's forgotten that's what dog's do since Bobby left him.
Nathan's been to see us as well. He told all the wasps to go away, puffed some magic smoke and they did! I must try that myself next time. Save him a trip.
Today's been pretty good cos I went for a long, long walk over my favourite hills with the he and she boss. It's been really summery lately but today it was cloudy and mizzly. I got very wet but we didn't get too hot. There were LOADS of spider webs and they looked very pretty although we didn't see any spiders

Sat Dog

Now here's an idea ....    Must show the she boss. They think there's a rat in our garden. I know there is but if I had camera with me AND caught it, this could be my heroic moment, my half hour of fame, my lucky break.
They better hurry up. The she boss put some stuff out today for the rat to eat to make it die. Safe away from my scrounging of course. My pal Nathan came and killed all the nasty wapsies as well so I'll be able to drink from Bill again.

And the he boss came too

Chilling by the river
 We did it! We went back to the place I lived with the she boss in the flappy house and took the he boss with us. He loved it too. We showed him all the nice walks and some more and did a lot of chilling as well.
Now the he boss has seen how nice it is in the flappy house I think he'll want to come again especially if we go there again.
I was expecting theFriendPeter to come and see us again but he didn't which was very disappointing but we weren't there as many nights this time.

This time we had LOADS of sunshine but today, now we're back at home the clouds have been bucketing down on me so I stayed in when the he and she boss went out. What a surprise I had when Sammy and Abimaro turned up at home. I can't say I was too happy as I wanted the she and he boss back. I was missing them after being with them all the time for 3 days. I told Sammy and Abimaro I wasn't happy but I'm not sure they understood. They just thought I'd fallen out with them.

In pain

We've got a whole load of wapsies come and live right by where I like to go and get a drink from Bill. They're real nasty and don't like sharing the water so tonight they bit me or something. Whatever it was, it hurt real bad. The she boss put some smelly stuff on me which helped but I was glad to have a carry and a cuddle cos I didn't want to walk on my poorly foot and I didn't like people looking at my nose. It would happen when there were some of my friends here as well just when I was showing them everything in my garden.

It was nice having a cuddle for a long time and I feel a bit better now. It's a good job. I was really looking forward to showing the he boss the long walk we like when we went to the flappy house before.

Good ears

We're going camping AGAIN already. I distinctly heard the she boss telling someone. It was a nice surprise for me and her as she didn't know I understood that word as well. I seem to remember telling you all a long time back just how many words I know. They're going to have to start spelling things if they don't want me to know what they're saying until I've learnt how to read and write as well. Even if I am getting old, I reckon I could learn a thing or two

I don't know why people made such a fuss about this: 
It's like the way people were looking at me as though it was something unusual when I went for a walk round where Sammy and Abz live. You'd think no one had ever seen a dog on the street. So what's the big deal? If they want to explore, what's wrong with that?

Yearly checkup

I've just been to see my doctor. He's a very nice man but I'm not too sure that I let him know that until I know I'm safe and past any nasty surprises he might pull.
He told me I was lovely, healthy, slim,  amazing for my age, fit (all the better for chasing),  great teeth (all the better for biting), shame about the eyes starting to fail a bit. It's not really a worry to me. The he boss has so many pairs of specs around these days he won't notice if I borrow a pair when I want to read the paper.
The she boss was telling my doctor that I have no problem taking my twice yearly tablets as she just pretends she's dropped some food, then when I nick it, she chases me to make sure I eat it as I think (so she thinks) she wants it back so I swallow it. Does she think I'm stupid. She might as well just give it to me. I know what's good for me but it's good fun making her go through all the routine.
The she boss said I cost her a lot of money today but I think I'm worth it. Cheap at half the price.
I haven't yet got away with this when I'm watching the floor around the he boss eating but I'm building up to it.......

Flappy house holiday again

I've just had a lovely holiday with the she boss in our flappy house. This was the refugee camp where we stayed. She was better organised than it looks and she looked after us very well.
We saw lots of baby animals. I think they must all arrive overdue up there cos it's so cold as some of them were very new born and cute while some of them were big enough to make a good Sunday dinner or 2. The big woolly mummy sheep all had different types of faces and some looked very scruffy. I wouldn't like a new coat made out of their wool. Some of them were very bold and didn't run away when we walked by them. They even looked like they might chase me instead of me them.

It's a shame these sort of big animals aren't so cute when they grow up.
These ones were very very sweet and even came out of the water to say hello to me. It was very exciting and if the she boss hadn't got me tight, I might have got carried away with the excitement! She gave them (and me) some bread but the big fish jumped up and ate most of it.
This was the view from our flappy house which would have been  very nice if the she boss didn't put her finger in the way. I was happy to look at it for a long time
We had some very nice skies to look at as well but there were a lot of grey ones too that dropped rain on us. We didn't mind when we were cosy in our flappy house. Not that it flapped much in all the wind cos we were behind a big hedge watching the pretty birds. It's a good job we were cosy cos it was very cold outside and the she boss had to spread her blanket over me one night cos I was shivering.

The friend Peter came to see me one day and we took him to see a big lake, the nice countryside and a coffee shop that didn't mind me going inside too and even sold some biscuits especially for me. This was one of my gingerbread men. The she boss tried one but her teeth aren't as strong as mine.

Next time maybe we'll take the he boss as well to see all the nice views and good walks up the rivers.
