Whooooo whoooo! I'm celebrating again! I had my Gotcha Day last week and just as the festivities were winding down, I got a diary pick!
Mnummmmmmm mnummmmmmm mnummmmmmmm! Excuse me a minute! I'm chewing on a big steak that Coco Rose and Puffy sent me. Delicious! And I have proudly pinned to my collar a lovely rosette from Hershey and Van Winkle!
I have extra sweeties tonight. The pawty goes on! Whoo hoo!

Today is my Gotcha Day! This day five years ago, I came to live with my new Mummy! Mummy's busy with work at the moment but she bought me a lovely new pink leash and we're going on a special walk together later to try it out!
Thank you Whitley for your lovely message. And to Angel Whisper, Dixie, Coco Rose and Puffy for your pawsome gifts!
Love Cleo XXX

I think he's my cousin. Anyway, Mummy's into that genealogy stuff so she'll know. So, his Daddy is Mummy's brother an' stuff. He's 13 and his name is Lorcan. And I LOVE him! He didn't visit for a while but he was here from Thursday to Monday. From England. Anyway, he was so much fun! We went on lots of walks. And he rubbed my tummy and played with me THE WHOLE WEEKEND! He was staying in Nana and Granddad's which is near our house. Mummy and me went home Thursday night but we got to stay Friday and Saturday nights. On Sunday night Mummy went home but let me stay! My Nana could not get me to leave Lorcan's room on Sunday night so I got to sleep on his floor Sunday night! And when he needed to go to the toilet I minded him outside the bathroom door and stuff. It was awesome! And now I miss my buddy Lorcan!

Yes pupsies - you read that right! It's over 30 degrees here (around 90F for my pals 'cross the 'lantic ocean) and for Ireland that's very warm. Anyway, I've been doing lots of swimming in the lake with the ducksies but Mummy was finding that my skirt, that's the long hair under my tail, was getting very matted and she hasn't been able to comb all the knots out. And I kept getting twigs and grass and stuff stuck in my skirt.
So yesterday evening Mummy cut all my skirt off! That's a big no-no for a Border Collie but I feel strangely liberated. So I have been strutting around and sunning myself with my bare bottom on show for all to see.
When Mummy cut my skirt she asked me to walk around so she could see how I looked. I could hear an audible gasp. Then a strange giggle. I'm sure she was just speechless at how great my new summer look is. And giggling cos I look so cute with my bare butt wiggling in the sunshine. And later I heard her talking to my Nana on the phone and talking about "baldy ass". Whoever he is.

Paco was a beautiful dog who was living with Galway SPCA. They discovered he was suffering from terminal cancer so they set up a special page on Facebook to show everyone how they were making Paco's final days as happy as they could. Poor Paco got really sick over the past couple of days so he had to go to sleep today, and his humans have just told us that he's reached the rainbow bridge safely and is really happy there. RIP sweet boy, Mummy is in tears all afternoon!

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……………….

My Mummy hasn't been her secretarial duties for me for ages, she says she's too busy. I just sneaked on here to let you know I'm still alive. Just about. SOS!

I got a rosette (or at least my Momma did) from some "'nonymus guy". Does anyone recognise this?
"I r sum 'nonymus guy, spweadin' wuff an' habbiness an' junk tu Mommas all ober dis Dogster-fing!"
Hmmm! It sounds like one doggie I know well. I just can't think right now who it could possibly be! You know that guy who loves haggis an' doin' the highland fling an' stuff? I wish I could remember his name! BOL!

Pupsies, I am so excited! Mummy has formally declared that the "obesity (Hmmmmmmph!) formula that I was on is formally banned! Ok, I'm still on a diet but I will be getting more normal stuff from now on. Let me explain.
I was doing ok with that nasty food. But in the last few days I was all itchy and irritated. And when Mummy was away in England during the week, my Nana was telling her on the phone that I was all scratchy.Scratch scratch scratch. That was me all week.
So we went to the Vet yesterday. And I had lost NO weight despite eating that yucky food for a month. But last night I was itching and scratching and crying because I was so itchy - Mummy was looking on the internet for stuff to ease my itching. So at 4.30 this morning (I kid you not) she was rubbing baking soda mixed with water into my skin cos neither of us could sleep. Then we settled down and had a good sleepie.
This morning Mummy checked out some antihistamines that are safe for dogs, and gave me half a tablet, She had been looking up some stuff on the internet about dog nutrition and she found out that dogs should have 40% meat, 30% veggies and 30% starch. So she made my own meatloaf with beef, oats, carrots, broccoli and cottage cheese and she made it in the oven. It was yummy!
So now Mummy is going to do a turkey version as well and put my portions in the freezer, then defrost them when she needs them. Proper food at last!
Mummy says that yes, she knows I need to lose a little bit of weight BUT we will do it using normal food and because the weather's better I'll be getting more exercise anyway. So sticking my tail up at my naughty vet making me eat that horrible stuff! BOL!

Today I am SOOOOOO depressed! Last month, I strained my paw running after my Whippet pal Zeb, so Mummy had to take me to the Vet. Anyway, he gave me stuff to take but also told Mummy that I was TOO FAT and put me on a diet!
Anyway, Mummy, Nana and Granddad were really good (if you could call it being good to reward their lovely, faithful dog with OBESITY - sob! formula)! Yes, I did get 2 Easter eggies but Mummy fed me less on those days and they were only puppy Easter eggies anyway! And OK, they relaxed a little bit for my birthday. But not too much.
So - Mummy was told to bring me back after a month to see how much weight I had lost. She was really excited because we were doing so well. Guess what? I was EXACTLY The same weight! After all my sacrifices! Now the nurse did say that maybe some of my fat has been replaced with muscle. HMMMMMMMMM. I reckon this dog food stuff isn't suitable for my delicate constitution. I WANT CHICKEN! Or a nice fillet of cod or something. Please send me some food! I am literally fading away here! It's just not fair! AND Mummy has left me out in my kennel in the sunshine ALL DAY! SOB!!!!
Oh, thank you all for your lovely messages and pressies for my birthday and diary pick. I think I'll go hunting round the garden now for a worm. Or a spider or something. Just so I don't faint from starvation.
