wow.. it's been almost a week!!

It seems I have been a bit of a slacker, it's been almost a week since my last post!!

I would like to say that I have been busy with my new girlfriend, but sadly that isn't the case, in all honesty I have just been busy reading everyone else's blogs and neglecting my own!

Mum & Dad are having the garden walls re-built so I thought I had a golden opportunity to take myself off for a spot of touring the neighbourhood, I was quite excited when I heard Mum telling Dad that the builders had knocked down the walls. I ran outside and straight into a......

8ft steel wall!!!

seems they anticipated my reaction to no walls and had a security plan put in place...

booooo.. spoilsports!!

I've made friends with the builders, even the one that initially said he was terrified of dogs.. I soon won him over with my big brown eyes, now he can't resist saying hello and giving my ears a rub! Mum says it's my doggy charms hehehe

No builders today though as the weather here has been horrible...

rain, rain and more rain with wind so fast it pins my ears to my head.. oh and did i mention the rain!!

Now the rain isn't nice but I can just about put up with it.. but wind!! Oh thats an entirely different story!! I really don't like the wind. The strange noises, the odd things blowing around and landing on me *shudder*. There is nothing pleasant about wind, it is either blowing in my face and making my ears stick to the side of my face and my mouth stretch into a demented grin or blowing up my my backside!! (most unpleasant) so i decided that I didn't really care much for going for any of my walks today.. Mum didn't share the opinion though and insisted that I was going whether I liked it or not!! Now I love my Mum... really I do.. but what is wrong with her???? It's wet, It's cold and it's WINDY... staying at home where it's warm and cosy is SO much nicer.. but nooooooo the woman is a maniac.. and an insistent maniac at that!! So I'm feeling rather peeved with her today... and everytime she drags me out I shake all over her on our return just so she knows I'm not pleased about being dragged out in a STORM!!!

anyway.. rant over.. I'll get over it i'm sure!

Louie and I don't mind the weather. I guess we are all weather dogs. We especially like tracking mud into the house. Mom is so glad we don't have any carpet anymore. Easy clean-up..

You can come over and play with us and our tennis ball anytime you would like..

Hi Ben

Glad you liked the poem, it made Hazel cry when she typed it for me, but at least it has a happy ending.

Have you started training your humans yet? I note from your latest post that you're having trouble getting your own way on the walk thingy. I suggest that next time you fancy staying in that you lift a paw and cry a bit, than lie down and give it a lick - should work like a charm and maybe you'll get a treat into the bargin. Be careful not to overdo it though or you may end up at the vet - yuk!

Hi Ben, thanks for visiting my blog (quite like yours, too!) I hope you have a nice fire to curl up next to when you come in from the storm!

So you're from Yorkshire, eh? I hear it's beautiful there, lots of woods and critters to chase. So does that make you a Yorkie-rottie?


Maggie & Mitch said...

We hate the rain too, Ben! Both of us pretty much refuse to poo when the weather is rainy and windy! This drives mom crazy! Marrow bones will make your drab days more exciting!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

We don't like the rain, but the wind is ok. Sorry to hear the builders blocked your escape.

Hope you didn't get hurt when you hit the wall.

The weather here has been lousy too, rain everyday. There goes my walkie.

You think using clickers to train our humans work? Have you tried?
