Cooling off period

This cattle trough is very handy for cooling off on my way back from my walks on these hot days!

A family reunion

I had a great time with my mummy (Poppy) & sister (Evie) on Monday on
Snelsmore Common. Isn't the weather glorious at the moment?

Training Daddy

I am still trying to train Daddy.  He is hopeless at fetching balls.  I put them in obvious places for him to pick up and throw, but he doesn't seem to have the skill that I've got.  It's not as though I am expecting him to chase after them.  He thinks I am the retriever, but I have other plans.

The Credit Crunch

I agree with a fellow dog who said on the radio the other day that, if it was left to us, he would have put all his money into biscuits and not derivatives and then the credit crunch wouldn't have happened.

Tick treatment

Here's a useful tip.  I picked up a tick on my eyelid the other day.  In the absence of vaseline, I tried Savlon antiseptic cream on it.  Daddy had to be very careful.  It worked very quickly.  I don't like the smell of tea tree oil and I hate anyone approaching me with tweezers, so this is a good solution.

Joie de vivre

I hosted a great birthday dinner party last night with some friends.  I was told I was the epitome of "joie de vivre", so I had to look it up.  It is used to express a cheerful enjoyment of life; an exultation of spirit.  Yep, that's me!
