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!
