Good walk?

Me and the she boss have just been for what should have been a lovely walk over my favourite hills. You can feel a 'but' there can't you?
BUT 1. It was REALLY windy which I'm not too keen on, 2. I kept hearing bangs which scared me, 3. I'd hoped we'd meet some friends there so I went right to the top where I took them before but there was no one there, and 4. I got REALLY cold and shivery while the she boss sat with her hot drink all wrapped up in her layers of clothes because it was so windy and because she didn't listen to me when I said I might need my coat.
You can see how cold, windy and lonely it was in the picture. The she boss thought it felt like the sort of wind that brings snow to the mountains we could see in the distance and I wouldn't be surprised myself.
Even the sheep had big woolly coats on. We passed them in a truck on our way home and I thought they might turn up here knowing how nice and warm the house is but there's no sign of them yet.

Bad dog

Her words not mine. I must admit though, I have been pretty bad today. First the she boss found an unmentionable something on the decking that I'd should no way have put there. I tried to tell her that it was because I'd been too scared to go down the garden by myself in the dark with all the flashy bangy things. Besides which, it was raining.
Next was what is in the picture. The she boss brought this back all the way from Swaziland when she went with that Beth a while back. I don't know why I decided to see what it was made of today and not ages ago. She said it didn't cost much but she brought it back especially for the he boss cos she knew he'd like it.
Just to finish it all off, I found something really nice smelling in the garden so I used it for my perfume. I really don't understand what the fuss is about except it was a bit gooey on my nice shiny coat. What is it with these people? I think it had something to do with the she boss being about to take me out in the car. She was pretty rough with me when she scrubbed it off so I kept away from her for a while.

Even more fireworks

There are STILL flashy bangy things happening whenever I go out on my field. I just can't believe it. I can't. The she boss dragged me (literally - very undignified) out there tonight and I told here it would happen and it did. She gave in when we were as far away from home as I could get and let me off. I got my own back cos she thought she'd lost me and went walking all around again on her own looking for me. It helped that it was VERY dark tonight and she couldn't see me. I kept very still so she couldn't hear my collar either. I don't think she'll try that again.

Thursday 17 November 2011


Pretty good day. I went with the she boss in one of those really big cars that fits loads of people. I'm not over keen but it's quite interesting and we didn't stay on for too long. The she boss says that next time we'll go on for longer and she'll let me go upstairs at the front and pretend to be the driver.
We went to Sutton Park on it which was good but I'm still scared that the flashy bangy things will start. I had to stay on the lead cos whenever I was allowed off to chase squirrels, I decided I'd try and go home again. Silly Millie Me. Never mind, it was real nice and the sun shone lots.

I like birds. Mainly only the little ones though cos the big ones nick the pears that the tree drops for ME. I like these birds too. We've got one that lives in our house. He's very well behaved. Causes no trouble and doesn't make a mess.

Flipping things. I hate them. They spoil everything for me. I have to hide under the table all the time. Every time I think they'll have finished, they start up again. We go for what should be a nice walk and it gets ruined. I go out and then can't wait to get back under my table again.
We've just been over my field again now and I knew, I just knew that there was going to be a whoosh or a flash or a big bang. Once we were out in the open, I told the she boss we needed to get back but she just kept right on going. I couldn't believe it. Doesn't she know what danger she's putting us in. Who knows where one of those flashes or bangs will be next. I waited and waited but there was no way she was coming back to look after me so I thought I better go and look after her instead. Just in case. There's safety in numbers.
It was all OK. This time. But I was still glad to get back under my table. Cos you just never know.

Different home

I did have a holiday and it was fab. Not too much but just enough walking. I am getting older you know. We got a bit wet sometimes but it was all OK cos we had a nice warm fire in our house which I remember going to before. We had a nice field to walk around when we wanted to leave time to do other stuff like sitting, watching chickens and keeping guard.
There was one big downside. The cat from next door seemed to think he owned our house as well and kept coming and making himself very much at home. He even went on MY blanket, MY she boss's shoulders and in MY water bowl.
One thing I'm a bit confused about now I'm home. We left thefriendPeter to look after our house at home while we were gone but now we're back and he's disappeared along with everything he brought to live here. It's a bit strange without him. I hope he's found somewhere else nice to live.
