Treats,Prizes, Cuddly Pals and Caught Red Handed!

What a great week I have had!

Firstly Mum, Dad and the beans popped over to Wetherby to spend my Pet Idol prize vouchers. They came back with an impressive haul!

Yummy..Treats! Sea Biscuits (these are so smelly!) Salmon Crunchies, Peanut Butter Bones and a big ole bag of crunchy bones!! Mum says these are my training treats.. I say.. Bring on the training!

And the slightly boring practical stuff (Sorry Mum) Travel Bowls and Bottle, Clippers (shudder) and a baggie for Mum to carry my training treats.

So once again, Thanks to all who voted for me in the Pet Idol competition and a big thank you to Tim and Vicki from Trophy Pet Foods. If you are ever near Wetherby Market on a Thursday you should stop by and say hello, they have sooooo much stuff.

I've decided that I need some assistance with guard duty (I need my nap time) so I would like to introduce you to Ben Jnr who takes up the post when I am napping, eating, playing, unavailable (basically 99% of the time). The theory is that Mum and Dad won't notice that i'm slacking because they will think he is me hehehe

Do you think I will get away with it?

I won another prize.. Mum says I must have been born under a lucky star or something!

Check this out..

How awesome is that!! Huge thanks and Rotti-Smooches to all over at Patience Please. You made me one very happy dog!

Now onto the more serious issue of my family trying to get away with telling a few untruths! (They really ought to know better than to try and get one past me!)
Yesterday they *claimed* they were popping out to do some really boring chores.. I was immediatley suspicious when Mum took the camera, then they came home with all these strange smells on them and with smiley faces (not the kind of face you would have if you had just spent the morning doing boring chores!!) A quick look at Mum's camera revealed what they had really been up to!!

The Moral of this footage... If you are going to sneak off without your lovable canine pal then DON'T take the camera!
In fairness to Mum and Dad (She made me add this bit) there are no dogs allowed at the farm... in my opinion they shouldn't have gone then!! They owe me BIG TIME!!

and finally I'm all sad and crabby today. Dad has gone back to work after being at home with me for nearly 3 whole weeks, and the little beans have to go back to school tomorrow after nearly six weeks of being at my beck and call. Back to just being me and Mum.. no offense to Mum cos I love her lots.. but no Dad and no beans just SUCKS!

Nice to have you back in bloggy land Ben!

OOoh, we love those sea biscuits too, and the fish skins made by the same company. Stinky but delicious.
