Field trip

That Beth's been here again bringing a Bertie with her. I'm beginning to think it really is the same one and so must be TheBertie. This time she came in then cleared off upstairs to bed leaving him for me to look after with the she and he boss so I took him out to show him my field. I don't think he was that impressed cos he went to sleep. He's OK though. Not bad at all for a very little person though he does make some very strange noises.
Talking about my field. Me and the she boss spent ages clearing up lots of bags and rubbish yesterday after all the windy weather we've been having. It looks a lot better now. We've decided the messiest things are the foxes who dine out there and then just leave their rubbish. The other messy ones are bosses, though I don't think they deserve that title, who bag up their dog's poo like we do but then leave the bag there! I mean, what's the point in that? Even I can see with my little brain that that doesn't make sense.

That Beth keeps bringing a Bertie with her every time she comes here. She can't seem to go anywhere without one. She seems to have to carry a lot of other stuff as well. I don't know if it's always the same Bertie. Are there more than one or is it THE Bertie like THE MillieDog? I'm not sure cos he looks different every time I see him and gets bigger and bigger. Dread to think where it will stop

Land entitlement

So much for it getting warmer. I've needed my new coat loads. These little guys have made themselves at home in my garden. I bet they wish they hadn't.

Talking about making themselves at home, why is it that little (white) dogs always act like they own the place? There's me and the she boss going on to MY field today for a good run in the snow when a little white dog comes out of nowhere and tries to give me a good going over for going out there. I'm happy to share my field with other dogs and their bosses as long as they respect it and remember who it belongs to but when they behave like that, I'll put them in their place in no uncertain terms. Wimpy coat or no wimpy coat. It's always the little ones as well.

A Bertie

It looks like the little person that that Beth brings around to my house is a permanent fixture to her cos they've been a few times. Apparently it's a Bertie, not just a little person. I don't mind him but I tend to keep out of the way. They've all made it very clear that I'm not allowed in the room if he's on the floor having his clothes taken off. I'm not sure I want to see that anyway and can't understand why he wants his clothes off but he seems very happy when he does.
I've got a nice new gate into my field which works very well. I'm hoping the wind gets a bit warmer so I can run without my coat.

Show Dog

Ready for Crufts. I didn't win.
I wasn't too keen to have to wear a new coat but I must say I've been glad of it the last couple of days. Wise woman that she boss

Visitors? Maybe not

We've had a strange few days. We had a couple of people come round. Only they didn't ring the bell and make me jump like usual. They came in through the gate from my field into the garden instead. I don't think I minded but it seemed like the he boss did so I helped him chase them back into the field. He was a bit slow cos he had to put his shoes on first.
Me not wanting to come out of the car
Now I can't go on my field because the gate doesn't work any more but we had another visitor who seemed to come and see the gate instead of us and I think is going to make it all good again.
Me, not very happy at lunchtime. New boot
Meanwhile, the she boss took me instead to what were my favourite hills except I'm not so sure these days. It was very cold. So cold that the she boss took me to buy a new coat on the way home. Also, there were nasty bangs again. I knew there would be when I saw where we were going and I did try to tell the she boss I would stay in the car while she had a walk to try out her new boots but she was having none of it. Big bully. I told here it would be cold as well and lunch time was pretty miserable though she did give me a cuddle to keep me warm.
That Beth and Ed have been again with the little person. He made a lot of funny squeaky and yowling noises this time but he's OK when that Beth plugs him in to her. I don't mind him and he keeps out of my way. Not sure if he likes me yet. The she boss says it's a Bertie whatever one of those is. Just looks like a very tiny person to me.

Funny little things

That Beth and Ed came to see me yesterday. I was really excited as I hadn't seen them for a couple of weeks. I'm glad to say it looks like that Beth has given up on the pies. If you remember in this post I said she looked liked she needed to cut down a bit. I couldn't believe how she was letting herself go. She looks more like I remember her now. They brought a very little person with them who made some funny noises and sat in a trolley thing when he wasn't having cuddles off everyone. I think he must have had some of mine cos no one was taking much notice of me. Apart from some different sort of smells, I can't say he was very interesting. If he comes again, I should be OK as they'll all be bored of him by then if he keeps just laying there doing nothing and I'll get a bit more attention on me again.

And yet more snow!!

I love it. It keeps coming back and covering up my field. The best thing in the world is running through it with my nose in it and eating it as I go. The she boss made me famous by writing my name with a bit of help

Disappearing snow

It's all disappeared; every last bit of it, even the he boss's little friend. We went to bed a couple of nights ago and then when I went out the next morning, it was all green again instead of white. I think I like the white better as my field is very muddy now again but I did miss all the colour when everything was white

More snow

And it's snowed and snowed and snowed. It's great and I'm having some fab runs round my field in all the cold and white. Loving it.
The he boss made himself a new footie mate but he's not much good for anything except playing in goal

White world

It's snowed!! Well and truly. We had a great run around the field with no one else there and some amazing smells. Loved it. Now home to my nice live fire to keep me warm and dry the snowflakes off me

Back to the routine

She's at it again. I knew it was too good to last. I recognise the signs. By our door is full of bags and boxes so I know the she boss is going to leave me again. I hope it's not for long. I feel so neglected when she's not here

Too cold for MillieDogs

It's gone proper cold here. I'm not very keen to go out on the field with the wind coming across and try to tell the she boss but she's having none of it and drags me out there. I've met other dogs out there who feel the same but these bosses are VERY bossy.
The she boss has been kind to the birds though and has been putting lots of seeds and fresh water out for them. She even nicked some of the peanuts in shells from the he boss and put a string through them to hang up just like when she was little. Birds these days don't know any of this old stuff though and don't seem to know what to do with it. Even the squirrel hasn't been interested. Just like the little people in the playgrounds having to be taught how to play the old games as they've forgotten them all while they've watched TV and played on their gameboys.

Life, oh life

You just never know what life's going to throw at you next, especially in this house. I could feel it in my bones that we were making our way to one of those days where there's lots of paper around for me to eat once people have taken the stuff out from inside but none of it followed the usual pattern.
Before I knew it, we'd packed up all the car with lots of tasty goodies and gone on holiday near the beach! In the cold and rain! We went to where the terrorising cat lives but thankfully didn't see too much of him. It was really nice and cosy and we had some pretty things around as well as the tasty things to eat.
Even better was that we went to the beach. There was no one in the sea except someone a long way out with a board but there were lots of sandcastles and picnics going on.

We stopped and watched for quite a while over a hot drink. It was good watching the world and their dog going by and the he and she boss nearly got a sun tan.

Just when I thought it was all good, we had a really rainy walk one day. the he boss wasn't too keen to have my wet hair all over him so he covered me up in the car. I actually quite liked it and could have stayed there as long as anyone liked.

We didn't stay as long as we usually do at this house and when we got home again, who should arrive but EVERYONE! - Sammy. Abimaro, that Beth and Ed. They all lived in our house for a few days and this time there was lots of paper around. It was very quiet when they all went again but we've had Ed coming and going. He keeps coming to sleep here. We followed him out one of the days and went to a new house I haven't been to before. I must say it was in a lot of mess. If that Beth sees it, I think Ed will be in some trouble. She'd have a job to catch him though cos it looks like she's eaten even more pies or too much of that nice dinner. I don't know what's becoming of her.

Today, me and the she boss went back to my favourite hills although I'm not so sure any more. There always seem to be lots of nasty bangs going on. We stopped for lunch by a rock on the grass and I hid my head under it to escape the noises while the she boss ate her bread. I was glad to get back safely to the car. You never can tell what might become of a stray bang.
