Yesterday, after the Easter Bunny had visited the Guardians - but not me! - Master Guardian and mummy took me for a long walk. We were gone nearly two hours! I really enjoyed it, because we walked all the way to the park, then along the river, where I could see lots of ducks and moorhens, and then we sat on a bench and watched the little waterfall for twenty minutes. I was on mummy's lap for a time, and then I sat between her and Master G and put my paws on the back of the seat so that I could watch people walking along the path behind us. Lots of them laughed at me, but I don't know why!
When mummy had caught her breath - I'd have caught it for her, but I didn't know anyone had thrown it - we walked back along the river and then Master Guardian bought ice creams for mummy and for himself. I sat on mummy's lap and looked very cute and sweet but I didn't get one single drop of ice cream. How mean is that? Mummy said that as I'm not eating my dog food, I'm not having even a tiny treat. Humph!
While we were sitting there, in the gorgeous sunshine, a little furless puppy of about four years of age - pre-school mummy said - came up to our table. He had a football in his hands and he stood and looked at me as I sat on mummy's lap. 'Can I throw this ball in her face?' he asked mummy. He meant MY face? Can you believe it? Mummy said 'NO, you cannot.' Then he thought for a moment, and asked if he could roll it across the table at me, and mummy said 'NO!' Master Guardian gave him a bit of a look, so he wandered off for a few minutes, and then he crept back behind mummy's chair until he was facing me again and then he asked if he could hit me in the face. Mummy was really shocked. Master Guardian says that the little furless puppy was in training to become a psychopath, whatever that means. She told him in no uncertain terms that he could NOT hit me in the face, and Master Guardian began looking round for his parents. He could only find a mummy, and she looked very young, but she was busy talking to a friend and had missed it all. Master Guardian looked so angry that the furless puppy wandered away again, but then when we all got up to walk home again, he asked mummy why we were leaving. 'In case my dog bites you,' she said, and that made him run away. She wished she'd said that before. Honestly, no puppy would behave that badly. I was glad I had two Guardians to protect me.
We then walked home again, and it's uphill all the way home so mummy said it would be nice if I could pull a sledge or do something useful, rather than just be decorative! I was quite tired when we arrived home, but not as tired as mummy who said her legs ached! We did have such a nice time though, and Master Guardian said it was really lovely to have peace and quiet - except for the aspiring psychopath - instead of all the hustle and bustle of London.
I wanted to go out for a walk again today, but mummy said 'No way!' and she and Master Guardian have been doing work in the garden and mummy has been getting washing dry as he goes back to London tonight. We've had a WONDERFUL Easter weekend, and my tail hasn't stopped wagging since MG returned on Thursday night. I'm really happy that the warm weather is coming again, because the park is such a nice place to go.
I hope all my Dogster pals had an equally nice Easter, and now mummy is planning my Spring page for Dogster, but she's promised me I don't have to have new photos taken for it - phew, that's a relief!
