These are lllllamas. They were living over the wall from Mum's splashy pool.
and this was the view from our window. The big window that we could see out of cos it goes down to the floor.
and this was Tara's bench. And my widdle tree.
This was when it had just started snowing on the Snow Day. Looking out through our window.
and this is looking out through the door.
this is when I needed a wee, and Dad pushed the snowdrift away so I
So Mum and Dad wanted to give me a nice big mountain walk after we had a wet and windy day, and didn't walk AT ALL. They said that I NEEDED it, and Mum said that if I didn't get a walk then she was going to spend the night in the hot tub, cos I was all Ninja and Amazing and a Little Madam. Which is good, isn't it? Although I didn't want Mum to go to sleep in all that splashy stuff, so it was good we had a walk, wozn't it?
Anyway, there are lots of pics, so this is going to be
So when we left the castle, we went down the street past the church that is being used nowadays, and we found a fab pub!
We all had burger! and Dad had beer and Mum and me and Tara had water. Mum wanted not-water, but someone has to drive home. I wouldn't mind driving, but it is nice to snooze in the back after a lot of castling and pubbing, isn't it?
Anyway, we stayed in the pub with Mum, while Dad went churching, and museuming, and then we stayed in the pub with him, wh
Hello aunties. I have to blog this, cos Tara didn't like the castle. She says that Dad kept wandering off, up stairs and stuff and leaving her with me and Mum, and she was all squeaky and whiney.
So I get to blog
We had a nice short car journey, which was nice. You can have too much of cars, can't you? Even when you have your own crate and bed.
And then a bit of a walk. Very sniffy. Old places are lovely and sniffy.
This is just inside the gatehouse. Gatehou
It was a fun holiday, but it was a weird holiday too!
It kept raining. Mum says she has never had such a wet holiday, and a sleety one too. although she has had more snow. We only had a bit of snow. We travelled all the way there, in the rain. I don't mind long journeys, cos I sleep a lot. We always know it is going to be a long one cos Mum sets up a second crate and we have one each. That way Tara can't trample on me and sit on me all the way there.
Mum says it was t
Aunties, we are back! It woz the Bestest Holiday EVER!!!
The mountains were HUGE and climby, and muddy and stuff. And there were llama things and peacocks and snow and hail and stormy lightning and burger-for-lunch and castles and pubs and ducks and turkeys and cats and geese. We went to a doggy cafe too! And had Dog Beer and Pupcakes and sat on a Dog Bed and the Sausage Lady brought our food on a special plate and served us! I want a doggy cafe at home, too. And me and Cat
Oooooh Mum has been so sneaky! She has been having a Special Secret and she didn't tell us! We are having another mountaineering holiday! And it starts today!!!!
It is SO EXCITING!!!!
It started with a new sausage place. Not our usual sausage place. Dad said he felt disloyal, and he prefers the old place. Mum didn't mind. Cato liked it cos he could Starling Hunt. And I didn't like it cos a big black Lab came and looked at me.
This is me waiting to see if my
Aunties, Tara and me need your help. Please. The flower stuff is starting again. If it is anything like last time, this is just the beginning... anything you can do to get Mum to do proper blog stuff, not flower stuff? You know, interesting sniffy stuff. Mud and poos and walking and so on. Not this endless stinky flower stuff?
Yesterday we had to wait AGESANDAGES for our walk. Mum snuggled with us on the sofa at lunchtime. I do like snuggling. I do. But I prefer walking
We went to the sausage place and had Cato's gluten free sausages. Yum! and then we went on the beach!!! Mum says we have to make the most of the beach now, cos when the Easter Bunny appears, we have to leave the beach all the Hot Time, and only get it back in the Cold Time.
This is first sniff. of course.
Those people are farfarfar out. Mum won't let us go that far out. But it isn't very sniffy out there.
Look! They mended my mountain ramp. And my clim
On Saturday we slept. Cos we were tired after our two looooooonnnnnnnnggggg treks with AuntieKimDogsitter.
And on Sunday it rainedandrainedandrained. So I did more sleeping. And Tara did a lot of sleeping and then just burst with BOUNCE. But Mum protected me from the worst of it, cos I was on her lap.
Mum had to go and do Work Stuff today, so we went to visit AuntieDogsitter.
We had two walks, and breakfast and foot baths and snuggles. It was nice. Tara would have liked it more if the HUGE great brown paw hadn't been there, but he was. And she survived.
This is our walk:
See Tara mountaineering?
This was an ACE sniffy windy walk.
There were plastic bag monsters hanging in the hedge. I saw them. But Tara didn't. Mum said they were safe, cos they couldn't get us. And they didn't. Silly monsters.
There was lots of mud. Tara liked that. It has been too wet to walk down the Tunnel, Mum says. So we had to mud puddle where we could find it.
a sky pic. Mum says they look like a pod of whales. Wot is a pod?
There were some lovely sniffs. M
Ha ha! Beach again. But Mum forgot the camera and her phone thing.
It was sniffy, and I wore my blue jumper, and Mum wouldn't let me bounce on Cato properly. But that was all that happened.
Oh, and we had bobolognezee sauce on our tea. It woz lovely!!!
My turn again! This was a FAB walk. With Dad! We did ping pong til I was all puffed out. It was ACE.
Mum said I didn't need my jumper cos it was warm
We went round the part 3 times! And the birds looked all scary big, so we didn't chase them. Cato said they were flocking in a menacing manner. Or something. He kept talking about AuntieMarlene and The Birds. But I don't know why.
The we played Ping Pong. It was the Bestest Ever. See Dad behind the tre
Hey Aunties. Mum says I have to do a bit of blogging even though I can't remember much... cos we have to catch up the bloggification. So here goes.
Oooh look. That is me and Dad. and the pier. and some clouds. we must have been on the beach.
and that is me running. doen't I look fab in my PINK jumper. All slim and athletical. And running. Towards that lump of wood. I look good, don't I? I wonder if I was going to climb on it...?
Oh! I REMEMER!!!
First we had to go and check out the beach and the promenade. Cos you never know what might have happened when we weren't there to make it all be OK.
Everything was still where it should be. Including our Sausage Place
and everything sniffed OK
So then we went to Foxy Park to see if it was still OK there too... (after we had a spa day, and got bald. except for my topknot, which I kept. But Mum says it doesn't look like a to
Mum says she is sorry, but she is now more than a week behind with bloggs. She is trying to catch up, but it means I have to do the blogging, cos Tara can't remember the interesting stuff.
Also sorry if there are some repeat photos. Mum is getting muddlified about which ones she has used already. I told her that she should just catch up, and then she wouldn't forget.
So we went for a walk round the sailing lake with Grandad on two different days. There was sun for some o
Hello Aunties! My turn today. I bet you are ready for ME now that Cato has bored you all with his hunting obsessification.
I love Grandad! not as much as Dad, of course, but I do love him. He says 'Shut up, you little attention seeking brat' and then bends down and gives me a nice deep back rub. And when I go 'woo woo wooooo' at him, he goes and finds me a toy to play with! He doesn't brush me though. Grandma does that. and she snips seeds out of my knickers with skisser
Cato: This bloggy thing is for Karel. He is a Brother Hunter.
Because of all my patrols, I kept the moles out of Grandad's garden for the whole time we were there. Grandad thanked me, and said how important it was. Look at this pic, and you will understand:
This is a pic of Grandad's garden looking out of our bedroom window. Mum lifted me up to so I could see too. There. In the field on the other side of Grandad's hedge. Can you see them? It is a massed hoard of invading
Today we are going to show you the Around Grandma and Grandad Walks. It was great! G&G live in a village (Mum says) and villages have more fields and stuff than where Mum and Dad live. So instead of town sniffs, there are more countryside sniffs. And more Hunting sniffs.
These are some Shetland ponies that live near G&G. Mum says that Shetlands are like Tzus. Small yet perfectly formed. I wanted to meet them, but they were on the other side of a very deep ditch. E
OK so you Aunties are all plant mad and weird, so Mum and me have decided to tell you about Grandad's garden first, on account of it being boring and I want it out of the way so we can talk about the interesting sniffy stuff later.
So Mum took lots of photos and these are the best ones, when it was sunny and stuff. There was a big storm one night, so the light was a bit grey sometimes.
This is the view from my Hunting Spot.
I sat inside, in the warm, looking ou
This is from before we went away too. It had been raining really hard for daysanddaysanddays, so the beach was all flat and covered with little raindrop foot prints. This is First Sniff.
We met this pack. They were nice. The paw int he middle is a Lhasa, and the other two are Tzus. This is my tail before Mum cut it. You can see how long my coat is. These 3 must have been cold. I was nice and warm. Mr Lhasa is on a lead cos he is a bit difficult sometimes, his
I can't remember when this was. But it was before we went away. It is hard to remember that far ago! I have to blog this bit, cos Tara can't remember it at all. She is asleep. She has been asleep since we got home. She is snoring.
Anyway, this is before we went away, when we did a beach walk with Mum and Dad.
It was raining when we got there. The red van is an ice cream van. No one was buying icecream in the rain, so he had his windows shut and his radio on, and he
oh Aunties, Dad has gone missing. We are ever so worried about him.
Mumsaid we wos going on a big adventure to see Grandma and Grandad, and it wos very exciting! There wos packing and toys and treats and everything went into our bag. And we went out to the car, and Mum and Dad loaded lots of stuff into the car, and we all set off.
But then Dad got out of the car! He said 'goodbye troops' and he told Mum He loved her, and us he loved us. And told us to be good, and we w
Hello Aunties! We had a great walk today. All green and sniffy and muddy. Much better than boring street walks and after dark walks.
This is Tara going Hunting. She messed it up. It was all wet and soggy, and she wasn't expecting it. Also, she thought I was right behind her, and I wasn't. I was sniffing the ditch wall, back near the carpark, and she got a bit scared cos she doesn't like solo Hunting. I prefer it, cos then no one else mucks it up. Anyway, she didn't get h
