Well I went for a nap on Monday and ... finally I have woken up!!

Just kidding! Mum got sidetracked.. whatever that means! (I asked the kids and Mollie said you spell it L-A-Z-Y)

Thank you so much! Mum is saving it and will give it pride of place when the new kitchen is complete.

Then yesterday.. another parcel for me!! It was my new collar and leash from DogWalkers.Net Am I gonna look cool strutting my stuff in this or what?

Photo's of me modelling it as soon as.. well as soon as I model it really!

Oh and I have a little secret.. but I promised not to tell!

I didn't promise not to give some clues though!

Mum has been arriving home with bags full of stuff that I am not allowed to touch, sniff, drool on and most definatley not cover with my beautiful black floof!

Why you ask?

hmmm can't say.. but watch this space!

On a more sombre note.. Mum and Dad had some very sad news on Monday

Heaven gained a new star on Sunday.

RIP Steve, no speed limits in Heaven mate.
