What Have I Been Up To?

I'm loooong overdue for a post!! Finally Mum has a little time to help me get updated! About time too.. vacations from blogging are no fun at all!!

THANK YOU to all who voted for me in the Pet Idol competition, voting is now closed so I am keeping my paws crossed (for Mums sake) that I come somewhere in the running... failing that, Mum is going to have some SERIOUS sucking up to do!!

Rather than writing a long post about what I have been up to I decided a picture diary would be more fun.. so here is my blogging hiatus.. in pictures!!

I promised photos of the state of me after a late night at the DWB 2nd Anniversary Chat Pawty.. so here I am looking slightly worse for wear!!

Mum and Dad went to a wedding reception and came home "claiming" that they spotted Dr Who's Tardis.. now of course.. no-one believed them.. even though they claimed to have photographic evidence...

So.. the next morning they took the kids there...they have now convinced the kids, but since I wasn't invited and STILL haven't seen it with my own eyes.. I'm reserving judgement on how much "truth" is in their claims of a close encounter with the Tardis!

Then there was my day out with Dad at Trial Bike Practice!! They didn't buy me a helmet or let me take the bikes for a spin but I had a great time anyway!!

We've arrived!!.. Let me out!

hmmm.. a long lead!! For some reason Dad doesn't think chasing the bikes is a good idea! Grrr.. he is no fun!!

I wonder if one of those helmets will fit me??

Dad comes up the hill on two wheels

I come up on four paws!

All this climbing is thirsty work.. Where is the water Dad?

The sun has been shining (for a change) so there has been lots of walks

with Dad...

and with Mum...

and I have been doing a lot of what I do best... posing!!

Some chilling out (and unsuccessful duck watching) at the Lake

and enjoying the sunshine at home.. ummm I mean guarding the house..

Oh and a quick word of advice DO NOT COMPLAIN YOU ARE TOO HOT or this may happen to you too!!

Dry me please!!

For doGs sake.. put the camera down and DRY ME WOMAN!!!

Whatever! I'll dry myself!!!

and what photo post would be complete without a.. "Mum thinks its funny to dress me up" photo??.. Mum you just kill me!!

So thats about all I have been up to.. I could have included several thousand photographs of me napping.. since Mum claims that is all I do besides eating!!.. But I'm sure you can all visualise that for yourselves hehehe

Love, Licks and Tailwags,

Ben xxxxx

Oh Ben, too bad that you cannot chase the is so much fun ! I think you are a great top model. Does your Mom or Dad pay you for posing like this ? Treats ?

I said I was hot once at the dog park and my humans got me with that evil hose. Usually they let me jump in the lake. That's pretty cool because there are ducks in there. But that hose... not so sure about that.


Jenn said...

Oh Ben thanks for the tip, I don't want the hose turned on me !

Looks like every thing else was fun thought. Great photos!

I am still laughing about the comment on Abby's blog, to say Happy Mother's day to your Mother in law!! I guess that's me. lol.
I couldn't wish for a better 'son in law' haha. you are very handsome.
And yes, no chasing bike riders in the woods! Bad boy. You have to be on the leash. basta.

Simba said...

You saw the tardis! How cool is that. I hate been sprayed with the hose, I run indoors and hide from it now.

Ben mate, I see you got the hose treatment. At least it wasn't pointed at your butt like I usually have to put up with.
The rest of the pics are great.

Ben! I gotta say that I have never seen a four legged human as happy as your in all pictures! You even look happy while you sleep! Heheehe! You also look like you really know how to play! I bet we could have a good rumble...then nap like we've never napped before!

Woohoo! Thanks for stopping by my blog! It's so great to meet you!

Cara said...

Ben looks like you had a good time.
Mam got the hose out on us and Jet bit the end so it now sprays everywhere
