Me and Howard!

Mummy went to chat to my Nanny and Granddad and left me in her room and I was unhappy about that but being a good girl I stayed! When Mummy came back in I told her I wanted something and she (silly Mummy) had to work out what! She thought I needed a wee and I let her believe that but when she opened her door I went straight across to see Nanny and Granddad! Oh and Howard! Now I do love Howard and I really want him to play with me but he hasn't met any dogs before me and Bess and so has taken a little while to get to know us (and of course Bessie is just too bouncy so Howard is still a bit wary of her). Well when I went in to see them he was lying on Nanny and Granddad's bed and I went over to him and sniffed his bum!

and he let me! 

Then I licked his side and that was fine too (Mummy was watching me and saying well done Howard but I was the one doing all the friendly work!) and then I sniffed his head and he was ok with that!

and then we settled down to rest ...together ...

Isn't that just the cutest pic? Howard Loves Me!

This is me happy to be friends with Howard...

Mummy has promised me a kitten when we have our own home! I listened very carefully but Mummy doesn't believe I understand! But I am a Collie! I am very Clever! So of course I understand and I think it will be fun! When are we getting our new home Mummy?

Photo Journal ~ Walk in the Park!

Mummy and I went for a walk in the park today! Mummy took lots of pictures of me playing so we thought you might like to see them!

Mummy says she knows this is a bit blurred but we had just arrived and I'm off to explore!

I love wallowing in puddles! Any water really! I just love it! I also get to have a very needed drink from all my running around!

Mustn't forget the very important shake...then I'm off again!

Aaaah a stick!

Come on Mummy! Throw it! I'm being good!

Me bringing it back! Aren't I fast? So fast you can't see me! hehe

Trotting through the woods! don't I look scary in the flash of mummy's camera! Mwahahaha!

Our last stop before home! A chance for me to play fetch in the lake and clear off any mud (yes it does work. Mummy says I don't come home smelly from the lake!)

On my way back...

and out! Time for home! 

I hope you've enjoyed my photo journal!

Chasing Chickens! (well if the fence hadn't been in the way that is)

  Mummy and her friend Chrissie decided to go out for a drive and have a coffee out today and Mummy took me with her! I do love going out with Mummy in the car and I know she will find somewhere to give me a run too! Well today we went out to Cockerham and Mummy had planned to take me for a walk along the Sands but we couldn't a place to park and there were lots of sheep grazing loose on the marsh. Now I wouldn't have mind playing with the sheep! I am a sheep dog after all and Mummy is sure I wouldn't hurt them I would just do my job and herd them but Mummy thought it wasn't a good idea so we had to find somewhere else.

Mummy then drove to the Farm where She and my friend Chrissie were having their coffee and cake and Mummy ran in first to see if there was anywhere to give me a run and Mummy was very pleased when they said she could let me run on the green on the farm! Well that was loads more fun than I expected! They had Chickens! I had never seen chickens before and I just wanted to get close to them and play but there was a fence in the way! But I still got very excited and most of my run was me looking at these chickens!

And then Mummy took a video of me just I was getting very vocal at this wayward Chicken! I was just trying to get him to go home cos he had wandered away from the coop but that darn fence was in the way! Why won't anyone let me do the thing I know I must do? I know I would be good at herding if I was just given the chance...Mummy? Pleeease? ( Mummy says..."I want to have you as a pet not train you as a sheep dog who would have to live outside and would be at work all day! I would miss my dear companion!") Oh OK Mummy if you need me of course I will stay and look after you! Anyway here is the video! Don't you think I look and sound sooo cute? Mummy does! :-)

Welcome Home!

My Mummy has been away for a week! She got an opportunity to race off to Cornwall and she didn't even ask me she just went :-( I know really she was sad to leave me and going to Cornwall with me would have been much more fun but she said it was great to imagine coming back home to me and having a big welcome! And I gave her one! I gave her the best welcome I had in me to give! When her car drew up outside the house Nannie shut Bessie behind the big gate and me and Nannie waited for Mummy by the small gate! Mummy got out of the car and came and gave me a big hug not even stopping to hug her Mummy and Daddy or talk to Bessie! She just wanted to have a hug from me! 

Once she had had her loving welcome from me Nannie let Bessie in and Bessie just raced through the lounge and jumped on my Mummy's knee and wouldn't stop licking her face (Bessie is a mad puppy!) When Mummy had finished being accosted by Bessie and had another cuddle with me she went out to unpack the car. I was very scared! I thought she was going to leave me again and I sat on her chair watching her every move through the window! But then when the car was all empty and our dining room was all full mummy came and flopped in her chair and I came and gave her another big welcome...I sat on her knee for ages and nearly went to sleep!
Me and Mummy having a big cuddle!

Later when I had got down Mummy went and brought her case in to get out presents and I got scared again but I didn't need to worry! Mummy got out the presents and her washing and soon the case was empty and we went upstairs for our afternoon rest and Mummy finished her unpacking and I knew she wasn't going to go away again! But I do think I need to watch her closely in case she decides to leave me again! I don't like it when Mummy goes away but I do love it when she comes home!

Sooo Cute!

I love my Mummy you know! She has to go out lots and to my annoyance I can't go with her! Most often I quietly jump on her chair to watch her departure through the window and then go to sleep on her chair while waiting for the first sound of her car so I know she's coming home! Mummy always comes and gives me a stroke and a kiss goodbye. Well yesterday when she had to go out I wanted to show her how much I didn't want her to go and how much I love her and Nanny grabbed her camera and took a picture 'cause I looked so cute!

This is me begging Mummy not to go!

Me Hanging onto Mummy! I'm not going to let her go!

You have to admit I do look very cute! How could Mummy be so heartless to still go when I had tried so hard to keep her!

Hello animal lovers.

How are you today? I have just got back from a lovely little walk with Mummy! My second in 2 days!

Now I know that as a doggy that generally isn’t exciting but your see my mummy has a health problem that makes her very tired and her legs ache when she does a lot on her feet! For the past year I haven’t had walks regularly. Mummy did the best she could and sometimes we would go for a run on a field and sometimes a nice long walk but never 2 days running and not as often as mummy would like!

I was very good and didn’t nag mummy for walks. I know she loves me very much and she would play with me lots and I had my puppy Bess to play with too.

But yesterday mummy took me for a walk along the local streets for half an hour and let me off the lead for a little bit on a green on route. It was lovely and I was happy and tired when I got back.

This morning mummy had to go shopping and when she came back I heard her say her legs were hurting and then our neighbour, my special friend, Caroline, who took me for lots of walks last year, came to take Bessie out. I was a bit unhappy not to be going too but then mummy said she would take me out too!

I was very excited as I always get when mummy says the magic word, walkies, or any of the other magic words, harness, lead, out, run, car, go, or any of the codes mummy has tried! Hehe! I’m a Border Collie you see? A clever doggy and I do love to prove how clever I am!

So today we ent for another walk around the local streets but a different way and we got to a green we used to go to. I was very pleased to be back there and found a piece of wood for mummy to throw for me! I was a bit of a pickle (mummy calls me that) I didn’t want to go back on the lead but mummy wasn’t in any hurry so we stayed a bit longer. Then I let mummy put me back on the lead to go home. We met a little dog as we left. He was friendly but was bothering me a bit so then mummy and I left!

Mummy says I was very good walking back. I was a bit tired and so didn’t pull at all!

Now I wonder if I’ll get a walk tomorrow? I think I heard mummy say that I would! I wonder where we’ll go this time!

Well thats all for today!

Hope you all have a happy Dulcie day out in the fresh Spring air!
