Yes, pupsies! My Mummy is on holidays this week from that stinky work thing she does so last night I barked and barked and barked and barked and barked at her that she has been neglecting her real job (as my secretary) so she promised me she’d do my dictation tonight. So here I am!

Me and Mummy had the most PAWSOME today today! The weather’s been really bad but the last few days have been really sunny and warm. I woke Mummy up early by fanning her face with my tail. Sometimes she gets grumpy with me when I do that (I don’t understand – I’m just trying to cool her down?) and sometimes when she’s in a good mood she gives me a good rub down – worth taking a chance on anyway! So this morning she must have been in a good mood cos she pulled up the blinds and got all excited cos it was all lovely and sunny. Anyway when she’s working I get banished to the kitchen with the back door open, and when she’s off I have to wait AGES for her to do all her getting’ ready stuff. So I settled myself down while Mummy had her shower expecting a very long wait. But all Mummy did was put some cream on her face and arms and she was packing me into the car! No waitin’ around, sighing, barking or nothin’!

So we went to the BEACH! My favourite place ever! Apart from Nana and Granddad’s. And the lake near us. There’s a beach called Spanish Point that Mummy likes to take me to cos it’s nice and quiet and I can swim and run around and stuff. I had my swim and chased my ball and Mummy found a nice grassy area where she
sat reading her book and I rolled around. Mummy and me both had our water. Then Mummy was hungry so we drove a bit where she got a sandwich for her and some ham for me and then we had a picnic! Just us two girls on our girls’ day out!

Anyway we had snoozes and rolls in the grass and ball chasing and reading and having a staring contest with some cows who arrived to look at us over a fence. Mummy decided we should leave in case I started barking at the cows and packed me into the car. But I was enjoying the staring contest. So we went somewhere else and had more rolling, swimming an’ stuff. Then we went home and sat in our back garden and ate ice cream. Then later we went to my “personal park” which is the grounds of a disused hospital where all the doggies go. Then we called in to say hello to Nana and Granddad on the way home. (I am getting so tired dictating this to Mummy!)

As an aside, Mummy “played” golf yesterday. Trust me, she approaches the ball with the delicacy of a hippo just off a roundabout. I’ve seen her a couple of times taking a swing and I’ve been barking instructions I’ve seen in various golf magazines, etc with advice to keep her eye on the ball. Widen her stance. Keep her left arm straight. The basic stuff. But she just shouts at me to be quiet. Some people just can’t take instruction……………….

Hey all my furriends! My vacation continues but today Nana, Granddad and my Mummy went off to someplace where Nana had some appointment and they left me on my own! All afternoon by my little self in Nana and Granddad's garden! I did a great job looking after the garden and when they got back Mummy gave me a yummy chicken dinner and stuff.

Hey Zaidie! We have those roundabouts here and I LOVE THEM cos when we get to one someone always comes out in front of our car when they shouldn't and Mummy shouts and swears and sometimes she gives them the two-fingered salute and I get to bark loads! BOL! Oh, Mummy and her cousin went on a road trip last weekend to meet some cousins and she was all bleary eyed when she came back after being attached to a Bodka Dwip™ for the whole night! They must have held her captive or sumfin! Some peoples are weird! I thought they would have been happy to see my My Mummy so why did they force feed the Bodka stuff to her?
