Well, it's all been busy around here, so we've been quiet on the blogging front. Firstly, Brazil and Boy Wonder, TJam's mum and dad, came to stay for a week. The Boy Wonder has done a marvellous job on the back of our house and it looks better than new.

In the meantime, if you haven't heard from TJam, it's because this is the phone that TJam put through the washing machine.

To its credit, the phone does still turn on, but the screen doesn't work and if you try and phone out, a woman's voice says that the number is unavailable. Luckily, this has happened before TJam asked for a new phone for her birthday. Let's hope it doesn't happen again. Doubly lucky, TJam still has FlipTop's old phone, so she is using that.

We loved having Brazil and Boy Wonder here. I enjoyed walking on Boy Wonder during the night and keeping him awake.

Unfortunately, Chips caught a nasty dog-bug and had a very poorly tummy. Every hour. In the end she had to go for some injections to heal her. This week, Beanz has picked the bug up. TJam has been sleeping on the settee, and with Brazil and Boy Wonder gone, I have had the bed to myself. Although it is a little lonely up here...

Grand Old Duke of York

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh the Grand Old Duke of York
She had ten thousand dogs men

She marched them up to the top of the hill

And she marched them down again

And when they were up they were up

And when they were down they were down
And when they were only half way up

They were neither up

Nor down (ok, so we ran out of "down" pictures).

Sad Bumbags

We are sad to report that we stumbled upon a bumbag in the woods that had committed suicide.

Catching Up

It has been such a busy Easter, we have not had time to blog. Imagine! Life getting in the way of blogging! The CHEEK!

Firstly, we went of a walk with Echo. He is pushing 40kg now but in this picture he was in the low 30s). That is about 4 stone for those on imperial and 56lb for our American friends :)

Then we went down to stay with TJam's parents, Brazil and - hmmm, need to think of a spy name for Boy Wonder. ah, that can be his spy name.

It had been raining so much round there that our usual path was a stream. I loved it but the Boy Wonder had to go through the brambles to stay dry.

Next we met up with TJam's old friend who we will call Astra. She brought her dog, Dylan, and we had a grand old time, walking in the woods. The humans chatted and chatted, catching up on 20 years, so us dogs could just get on with being dogs. Bliss.

Then we met up with Piglet and Puppy (who you may remember from last year when we went looking for Winnie the Poo). They have grown up a lot and are a lot of fun to play with. They are pretty good tree climbers too.

When all that walking and socialising was done, and a bit more walking and some other socialising, and the humans had eaten a Chinese takeaway and we had had some of the leftovers (yum yum yum), Fliptop washed our van for us, and we came home. Thank you Fliptop!

What a couple of weeks we have had!

Be Warned

TJam better put plenty of newspaper down tonight. That bag was full when TJam went ok. It was the biggest bag of nuts and raisins you can buy. I don't know what TJam will have for her snack tomorrow. That's not my problem.
