Hello? It's SUMMER! Sun, where are you?

Grrr....the weather has been lovely for the past week. It reached 30C! All I've been doing is sunbathing. But of course, it had to come to an end eventually, and it DID! It was tipping it down yesterday, in the middle of Summer! It's not fair! We get so much rain in the Winter, why do we need it in the Summer too?

There was a thunderstorm yesterday too. My teenage owner put my bed under the desk so I could hide. My youngest owner was dancing in the rain, I can't understand why. The thunder was terrifying. He must of been very brave.

Today my teenage owner (who helps me write my diary) was taking a new picture of me for my biography. She kept changing her mind and I really wanted to go and play with Mabel but everytime I turned around she would have to take another picture. She sat me on the bench in the garden and held a treat up by the camera. I wanted to eat it but she wouldn't let me.

Then 10 minutes later she stopped and gave me the treat. One measly treat for all that? I was famished! Being a superstar is tiring work you know!

But at least I look pretty in my new photo! In my old one I'm standing in the sea when we went to Ireland, I know it doesn't look like the sea, but there was no wind, so no waves, it was fun, but certainly not my best photo. My new one is much better.

Mabel is calling me, she found my raggie and we're going to play tug of war, see you soon!


Summer is here!

Yipppeeeeeee! Summer is finally here and I can go SWIMMING! Mabel is a bit scared of the water so she doesn't swim even though my owner is teaching her how. Sometimes it is a bit too hot and I go and sit in the shade in the garden to cool down.

For some reason Mabel looks very different suddenly, she looks smaller and has a lot less fur! I don't like it, I think the evil vet caught her or something. Everything is very strange recently and lots of things have changed. First my owner brought home some little furry animals that she keeps in a cage then she goes on holiday and leaves me at home with her family and then Mabel gets smaller! It is all very scary and I don't like it at all. I'm just going to stay out of it all.

Food time now, I hope that nothing has changed there!

See you later friends!


It snows at last!

Wow! Snow! It's so fun, me and Mabel can run as fast as we can and then when we stop we go sliding! Especially on the path. We didn't have much, ad I got very cold but it was fun.
