I found a BONE

Cato: I found a BONE.  It is very very big.  And it is all MINE. Mum has been messing with bones up at the top of the kitchen.  Something to do with drying them slowly so they don't go too stinky (Mum: using dehydrator and venison ribs) and today, when I was coming in from my mid morning Garden Patrol, I saw it. In the middle of the kitchen floor. It is ENORMOUS. It was difficult to carry. But I couldn't leave it there for Tara to find. So I picked it up and ha

Sat 4th Feb: AuntieSue and Hellebore Day

Tara:  Hello Aunties.  We went to meet AutnieSue at Town Park today and there where these Hellebooring things all over the place.  You will see just how boring they were when you get to the pics.  Yawn.  But I don't mind, cos I can tell you about meeting AuntieSue who gives us treats.  And stuff like that. This is First Sniff before we met Auntie. And this is some big old boring tree wot Mum remembers from last summer when they cut all its arms off, but now it is growing its hair

Our visitor

Cato: Hello Aunties!  We had an exciting visitor today! We was walking over to see Auntie Jane this morning,  when this strange scruffy paw came over to say hello. He looked like he hadn’t had a b*th or a brush in AGES!  He was wandering about the street without having a human on a lead!  He was waggy and sniffy.  And his tail woz nice and friendly. Mum said he looked like he needed some help.  So she took my lead off, and put it on him, and he and Tara walked the rest of th

We have our OWN sausage place now!

Cato: You know how Mum and Dad sometimes drag us into sausage places, and we get bored under the table while they stuff their faces with lovely food and drink stuff, and then after agesandagesandages we get to go outside and have some sausage wot they saved for us? Don't get me wrong, I like the sausages!  And the steak.  And the 100percentbeefyburgers and the bits of chicken. But now we have OUR OWN sausage place! And it is only 10mins walk from home!  So we can take Mum for

SUNDAY 3rd Apr: Sunday sunshine and flowers

Cato: Auntie Jane for breakfast in the sausage cafe!  Yay!  Then stinky bum fox park.  They spent AGES talking about work stuff.  Yawn.  Thought the walk was NEVER going to happen.  But we got there in the end, and the sun had come out. The bicycle man was there, in his flourourourorescent jacket, cycling round and round and nearly wobbling over onto us every time.  And Fat Bruno was there.  Except he has been on a diet and is now nearly Slim Bruno.  Tara lay down for him. More ca

I’m perfick!

Tara: I just got back from a trip to Mrs Vet. it was ACE!!! I took Dad there.  For my nasty prickle jab wot i have to have every year.  I don’t like that bit. But I had to sit in the waiting room for agesandagesandages and i got masses of fuss and attention.  One nice lady said i had ‘rad piggies!’ (They are purple and pink stripey ones today).  And then we went in to see Mrs V and she woz nice too.  She says i have excellenty toofies for my age, all clean and white and shine

THURSDAY 24th Mar: Skipping to Dogsitter

Mum: Since this is their second vist, both Dad and I were very interested to see whether they wanted to go, or not. I start work at 7.30am usually (homeworking on computer) so Dad dragged himself up to get them there first thing.  They took wee packed breakfasts and their leads.  She still had their treats from last time. Apparently, he parked outside the house, put the leads on, and got them out of the car.  At which point they dragged him to the house, up the driveway, and sat o

FRIDAY 11th November: Lovely walk

Cato: It woz my first proper walk since my tummy, and my first proper walk since having proper food.  Fish isn't food, is it Aunties?  Fish is... is... meh! So lots of sniffs and sun and sand and stuff.  And I wore my jumper cos Mum said it was chilly, but I would have been OK cos when the sun came out it was nice. This is First Sniff: Mum says the light was 'magical' cos the air was totally still, no wind, and there was hazy sun.   Things are still flowering

Autumn Photoshoot

Today we saw real signs of the changing of the seasons. Some of these pictures have come out like Rembrandt oil paintings (slightly fuzzy, and look best when you stand further away), and some are crisp and clear.  I think it is the difference between the Auto Focus, and the zoom where I control the focusing.  I definitely need more practice at these closeups! I was wandering round thinking 'gosh, there is nothing to shoot', but then I noticed how subtly beautiful the light is, and how

FRIDAY 23rd December: Xmas Sausages

Aunties, come and see!  It was an ACE walk! First we visited the Sausage Place with Mum and Dad. Did you see all the dangly bobbles on the cealing?  That is all to do with SantaPaws coming to visit, Mum says. Then we went on the beach and had my special Gluten Free Sausages The sea was there, but it hadn't eaten all the beach yet, but it was terrible windy. AuntieMarlene, LOOK!  I did a special Air Widdle especially for you!  Tara is just jealous.

SATURDAY 30th Apr: Bluebells, primroses, dandelions and tulips

Cato:  Mum and Dad put us in our crates for breakfast, and went out to eat. But as soon as they came home, on with the leads and a nice walk!  Started with a trek to the butchers, where we waited outside with Mum.  and Tara was a pest.  Then we cut through the little Churchyard Mum says these are bluebells just starting and the fatty bushes did well through the winter.  yawn. Then here is one of your palms @AuntAngel and some roses along the wall.  Mum sniffs t

MONDAY 4th Apr: RAIN RAIN RAIN

Tara: No walk!!!! No pics. No fun. Nothing but boring snoozing on our beds. Mum didn't even stop working for lunch. We had to wait until Dad came home from work at 2pm before we got a single game!  But he sat on the front room floor and wrestled with the python, and we helped.  A lot.  And when he got tired we took over, and wrestled with each other.  And then we wrestled the panda and the brown bear.  The brown bear is particularly dangerous and we had to kill it over and over an

SUNDAY 31st July: Seafront promenade florals

Cato:  Sausage breakfast, then a really boring walk along the seafront.  We have to wait til the end of September before we get the beach back  so we walked by the stinky flowers, wot Mum had to photo for you.  Yawn, and then back along the path bit.   It woz a bit hot, and I got thirsty.  Sausage makes you thirsty anyway, doesn't it?  And Tara climbed on everything, of course.   Mum:  Today was a completely different routine.  There was a charity fun run (10k) so lots of roads we

SATURDAY 26th November: Supervising new shed roof

Cato: It was VERY exciting.  We had to get up early, cos Mr Roof was due before breakfast!  And Mum and me went out to do a last poo pick up.  Good thing we did too, cos Mr Roof and his friend Mr Hat came early.  And they opened the back gate.  And we got to meet them.  But then we had to come inside and not get in the way.  Not that we would have.  Mr Hat said he wanted to take me home with him.  And Mr Roof laughed at Tara's topknot.  I liked them both. For some reason the cat flap s

MONDAY 7th November: Sniffy! Yay!!!

Cato: Mum said no walk yesterday cos of the coldwetwindiness, but today we went to the Big Lake.  I had to wear my English Gentleman Jumper, cos of the cold, and we only went round the lake on the path.  Boring or what?  But Mum said that would be enough for me, and I was very tired at the end.  I AM feeling much better though.  But I am VERY bored of fish. This is first sniff. It has been very weird while I was ill.  I haven't been able to go sniffing.  That is terrible.  M

Holiday: Getting there

Cato:   Oh Aunties, it was a longlonglong car drive!  We had to stop three times and have a widdledrinktreat.  three times!  And Tara had a bit of a tizz when Dad went and got us burgers, but I was OK cos I knew he was coming back.  We sat on the grass and all had burger.  Although Mum and Dad's bits were huger than ours. Then we arrived!!!  It was weird.  Cos nothing sniffed right.  But the beach is good, and our den is good.    this is our fireplace.  It is made of something called M

FRIDAY 26th Feb: Home Again

Cato: Very tired today, and got a bit worried seeing all the packing up this morning.  But we slept in the car, and when we woke up, we were home! Checked everything out, had a widdle and a calcium bone, and then went straight back to sleep.  Only problem is that Mum has wasted ages on the computer, instead of providing lap services in the front room.  Hope it doesn't mean we will miss out on brushing, later!  Mum says we get a day off walks and photos today, cos of our mara- mara

TUESDAY 21st June: :( no walk days :(

Cato: oh Aunties! it rained and rained and rained yesterday.  Mum says it was like stair rods wotever they are.  So we didn't walk. and then today it woz hot hot hot, and Mum says it won't be cool til it gets dark.  So we aren't walking again. I am very good at sleeping, but even I am getting bored with it.  And Tara is unbearable.  The next time she wants to chew on my ear I may get a bit cross.  She is lying on her back on the living room floor, and I am lying on the sofa n

FRIDAY 25th November: Spa Day

Cato: We had to get up early and go out with Dad, to see AuntieLesleyGroomer. She is very nice, and she gives us nice treats.  But she also gives us b**hs, and chops off all our hair.  And Mum isn't there. She has to do Tara first, cos otherwise Tara just whines, so I have to watch it all happening to her, and know that it is going to happen to me too... But then Mum and Dad picked us up and gave us breakfast, and put our jumpers on - cos it was really cold now I am bald.  An

SATURDAY 31st December: Hot Choc Gaumlessness

Tara:  So today we had fun!  And Mum did a silly gaumless goofy thing, like wot she says I always do, but I don't!  And she did it today!  Haha! We trekked all the way to the beach along the road!  Normally we go in the car, so we can get more beach, and less boring road stuff.  But today Dad needed to check his shifty times at work, so we walked.  Cato sniffed EVERYTHING.  Here is the beach: It woz warmer today.  Less crispy and more comfy, so I didn't get to wear my pink ju

November holiday - Whitby part 1

Cato: Hello Aunties!  And especially AuntieCrystal @PipsMom, cos we are blogging so that she has something to read when she feels like it.  And for UncleMartin @megabit so that he can read it too. So we went away on holiday.  It was AGES ago, so I don't know if I can really remember all that much.  But Mum says she will show me the pics and then I can try and tell you all about it. We stayed in this place. https://www.sykescottages.co.uk/cottage/North-York-Moors-Coast-Aislaby

Back home after holiday

Tara: So we got home and it woz nice to be back with Home Sniffs, but the BEST bit is that I learneded how to climb stairs! Aren't I clever? The day after we got home I followed Mum up the stairs.  Our stairs are different from the holiday stairs.  They were wood and brown and slippy and really steep!  Our home stairs are soft and carpety and narrower, but still steep.  So I was really brilliant of me to know about holiday stairs and then go up the home stairs, wozn't it? So

WEDNESDAY 26th October: Bear Woods and MUD

Cato: So today Mum took us to Bear Woods.  It was GREAT. This is First Sniff: and this is a nice Spaniel who wasn't listening to his Mum at all.  She was shouting and shouting, and he was sniffing and sniffing. Today we went the other way round from normal, so all the sniffs came in the reverse order.  It was fun! Just along here we met a lady from Mum's work, with her friend and two children.  We were excellent Shih Tzu ambassadors, Mum says.  The boy

Cato’s back issues

Mum: Well, today has been a revelation! We had our Chiropractic Appt this evening, then the whole Pack repaired to a nearby pub to discuss the outcome, before the long (60 mile) drive home... Firstly, the Chiropractor (who is lovely, gentle, and obviously loves dogs) diagnosed Cato has hypermobile joints (stance, flexibility and overextension of joints).  Interestingly, I have hypermobile joints too.  So I know EXACTLY what it is like, the management, and the ongoing problems that

Burger, beef rib and sleep disturbance

Cato: hello Aunties!  How are you? I am very well thank you!   It was all wet and soggy today, so Mum and Dad said ‘no walk!’  but they said they would go out Hunting and bring some prey back. i wanted to help, cos i am an excellent Hunter, but i think they were sensible to leave Tara behind, cos she always mucks everything up, and doesn’t have proper Hunting Instincts, like me.  So then I had to stay with her! Cos she always gets silly if she is left alone. But even without
