Mum does it again!!!

Hi folks... almost at the end of my blogging hiatus!! Grandma gets back from Thailand on Tuesday so Mum should be able to help me out with my blog a little more soon.
Today I am going on a little adventure with my Dad, the Landies and the trials bikes so I will get Dad to take lots of pictures so I can show you all how much fun I had.

The weather is quite hot here at the moment, Mum looks like a boiled lobster hehehe
I've been spending most of my time chilling out in the shade. Mum threatened to put me in a white t-shirt!! Hmmmm.. I think not Mum!!

Mum has entered me in a Pet Idol competition in a local paper (about time too!!) but.. and I stress the but here... she entered me then FORGOT to buy the newspaper on the 6th.. the penny only dropped last night and so she checked the website and she now only has till the 13th to vote for me!!! Honestly ... how RUDE!!!!

She can only e-mail a vote once a day, so looks like she will have to spend a heap sending in text or phone votes at 60p a pop .. at least she better after the fiasco of not entering me for the last one and letting that ginger furball WIN!!!!.. he still looks like the cat that got the cream!!

Anyway, if you would like to vote for me you can send in votes by e-mail once a day to:

the subject line should be: PET IDOL VOTE

and you need to include the following info..

Pet Code:#2103



You can vote once per day up to and including Tuesday 13th May.. I'm sure Mum would appreciate a few extra votes being thrown my way, she is going to have some MAJOR sucking up to do if some furball wins this time!!

You can also Text YEPPETIDOL followed by a space then the code 2103 to 81800
Or call 09016 565928, follow the instructions and enter the four digit code (2103) but calls and texts cost 60p.. so e-mail votes are just fine.. and FREE!!

I'm off to try and fit in a few blog visits now before I head off for my adventure, Mum is taking Great Grandma and the kids to a Spring Fair at the Church.. no doubt she will come back an even deeper shade of Lobster hehehe

Miss you all.. can't wait to be back next week!!

Love, Licks and lots of giddy Tail-Wags

Ben xxxxxxx

Hi Ben,

Love reading your blog. I have, of course, voted for you to win Pet Idol. Let's face it though - it's in the bag! Who could resist??

You came to the right place—DWB—to get your votes.

We DWB take care of our own. I just voted for you and promise to do that every day.

It's freezing and raining here in the US where I live, which is near Washington, DC. I'm afraid the global warming has wreaked havoc with the weather systems all over the planet. We sincerely hope a change in the White House will mean a better strategy....I for one am ashamed at the way the US has handled the problem.

All this awful weather change means is that I have to stay indoors and it is raining fiercely and it's freezing out!
