Birthday pics





Here is me with my kong.

It's my first birthday today

I feel really grown up today. It is my first birthday and I had a kong and a new flashing collar. They are both very cool! I didn't know I missed my lost kong so much. I spent all this morning chasing it and chewing it. I am waiting for Daddy to hide some food inside it. That would make it even better. On my walk, I hung on to it while Daddy swung me round. It made him dizzy - serves him right!

Daddy bought them online at www.traininglines.co.uk.

My first birthday

I will be 1 year old on Wednesday, Christmas Eve. I am looking forward to that and Christmas Day. I think I have seen Daddy smuggling in some parcels and wrapping pressies. Whoopee! What I would really like, if Santa is looking at this, is another kong, as I have lost mine in a deep puddle and it doesn't float!

PS For the record, I now weigh 23 kilos.

Photoshoot

I had my first photoshoot yesterday! I hope to bring you some results soon. I had to sit or lie very still which I found very difficult, even after a good walk as I was very excited to see Amy & Tigger again and my minders.

A new friend

I met my 'cousin' over the weekend in Scotland - Ricky. Here we are at his house. I think he got fed up with me pestering him and Daddy hopes I have got the message!

A little word in your ear.
Here I am looking to see what Daddy is doing.
And here is Ricky's neighbour looking to see what we are doing!

Lake District November Day 7

This was the last day before everyone went their separate ways. We decided to do some shopping and do a flat walk at Conishead Priory. I had to stay outside while the humans looked inside the Buddhist Temple, but I was rewarded with a swim in the estuary.Conishead Priory at EveryTrail

Lake District November Day 6

On day 6, we were down to 3 humans and the clouds were down, so we did a local walk to Brockbarrow and Top O'Selside on the east side of Coniston Water. This is known as a geriatric Wainwright (like Beacon Fell), but there was plenty of scope to explore.

Lake District November Day 5

This day there were fewer of us, but it was the best day weather-wise. Daddy wanted to find the Priest's Hole (his GPS read NY 37583 10978) on Dove Crag and we found it! We came back over Little Hart Crag and High Hartsop Dodd, and I had a paddle in Brotherswater at the end.

Lake District November Day 4

We had a long drive again on the fourth day to Wastwater. We climbed Haycock, Scoat Fell and Red Pike.

Lake District November Day 3

This was a day after some snow had fallen. I hadn't seen snow before, or ice. It is great to eat and roll in. We climbed Wetherlam. I think I was the only one that wasn't blown over by the wind. It was so gusty, Daddy thought it was too dangerous to go any further so we went back down into Coniston by a different route. This took us past Wetherlam Tarn and Hole Rake Tarn, but they were frozen over.

Lake District November Day 2

On our second day, we did a Buttermere horseshoe. This was great fun, but it was dark by the time we got back to the car. I climbed 4 Wainwight fells - Robinson, Hindscarth, Dale Head and Haystacks. The original plan was to walk down from Honister Pass to Buttermere via the first three fells, but then Clive said he hadn't done Haystacks, so a new plan was hatched... There were a few tarns on the way round, but they were more or less frozen over. Dexter paid his respects to Innominate Tarn.

Lake District November Day 1

This is the first of a series of logs of my walkies with Daddy's friends in the Lake District last month. On 21 November, we went up Beacon Fell. I am getting very familiar with this as it is the local hill.

I've just come back from the Lake District

and I'm worn out! But I had a fantastic time and climbed umpteen hills. These will be logged over the next few days so you can see my exploits.
