Hi there all my tail waggin' friends,
Now when you think that I live in South Africa you wouldn't think I would have to deal with snow! Please! Yep, this week it snowed and snowed, there I was tail waggin' one day and depressed and cold the next. To add to it all, my Mother blew it again. Sunday she put on that sly voice calling "Snuggles, Snuggles" but I had already heard her filling the bathtub and I could smell that awful smell of doggy shampoo. Even though I hid behind the sofa she found me and dragged me off for a bath and a hair cut.... well no wonder it snowed on Monday! My poor partner Milo was also degraded with all this soap and scissors stuff.. sigh...
Anyhow, there we were in the snow, nearly bald as Lhasa's go, sporting our blankey jackets traipsing through the garden, inches deep in snow, with Mother saying "Come on now, do a wee wee". Have any of you ever tried to "wee wee" when ones paws are freezing, the world has turned white and one's tail is down. Not the simplest feat I must tell you.
However, the sun is out again, that darn snow is melting and here I sit wrapped in a blanket on the sofa wondering when it will be warm enough for me and Milo to go ratting again.
You all have a super summer wherever you are and remember, us dogs rule!!! Oh yes, and cats suck!!
Much tail waggin' love

Hi there All my Tail Waggin' Friends,
Yep it's me Snugs again. Happy 2010 and all that, I suppose. You know, I started this year on a happy note - a couple of rats passed by, if you know what I mean!! - and then Mum ruins it all.
Last week out comes the big, orange scissors. Gee that sure is mean. Mum prepares a nice soft place on the couch with our towels and then looks for me and my mate Milo. Let me tell you, we knew precisely what her evil intentions were. We both get that "whipped look" is what Mum calls it, and off we dash, tails down, helter-skelter as far as possible from her.
She kind of gets that smug look, like a cat, and when she says my name it singsongs a bit, which must be guilt on her part. Let me tell you my cute, happy temperament changes immediatley. I go into "Cobra Mode" and woe be her when she comes near me. No more cute, snuggly little Snuggles I tell you. hmmmph.
Ok, Ok.... eventually by default there I lie at her mercy on the couch with the scissors snipping away at my coat and my lips lifting in the Cobra Smile that I have perfected. Every now and then when I see Mum relaxed and happy snipping away I kinda need to remind her who she is dealing with and I aim for those wrists and try and put a bit of damage control into them......
So yes, here I sit, a Lhasa Apso, writing this to all my friends while I am wrapped in doggie blankets to keep warm. What a joke!!!
Well keep rattin' and keep an eye out on those darn cats.
Love to you all

Hi there all you Tail-Waggin', Cat chasin' Friends,
Yep Summer is here in South Africa and Mother has taken the scissors out to clip off all the winter growth so me and my partner Milo can be cool and fresh. The best thing that has happened recently is that Mum has taken to feeding garden birds. Hmmm!! They look fresh and juicy I can tell you. I told Milo it's like having a food factory move right into ones own backyard.
So there goes Mum at 6am with a cup of seed and a bowl of suet and puts it all out on the feeders. Then whilst she makes morning tea, Tigger the cat, Milo and me put our butts in the air and chins to the grass and inch our way forward to those feeders. Yep, those tasty little critters are all puffed up, pecking away hungrily, each one looking like a healthy breakfast to us. Before we quite reach those feeders though, Mum comes storming out the kitchen chasing all of us.
Sigh........ all that hard work for nothing, and wetting our paws and tummies on the morning grass all came to nought! hmmph.
So it ends up that me and Milo crawl back into bed with Mum and a dog biscuit to get lots of hugs and cuddles.
Yep, I suppose that it's not too bad an alternernative to fresh Pigeon a la Snuggles!!
You keep up all the cat chasin', rat catchin',
lots luv from your favourite Lhasa
