There must be some mistake. Santa has delivered this present to the wrong house!

Hectic Day

Just snatching 5 minutes to share the love with Boy Wonder.

Merry Christmas

Well, merry Christmas to everyone. We were lucky to receive this lovely card sent to us by nephew Bob and niece Cat.

I am celebrating the day by drinking out of the flower pot. I might bark at Brazil and Boy Wonder's chicken later... 

Saturday 21 December 2013


Today I sat on TJam's Christmas card bag while I watched TV. I like to play my part in the preparations.

Friday 20 December 2013


Cruelly Alert!
I was asleep and not doing any harm to anyone when TJam came and took my comfy bed away so she could wear it.
I made sure I left plenty of my white bits on it so TJam doesn't forget me while she is out.

Sunday 15 December 2013


I have been helping. This is my favourite time of year. Boxes in boxes and tinsel. Ho ho ho!

Tuesday 10 December 2013

Santa's Little Helper

I have been helping TJam wrap. She LOVES it when I help. It makes everything go MUCH faster.

Sunday 1 December 2013


A bag IN a box? My life is complete.

Saturday 16 November 2013


When we have visitors I like to test out their bedding and if that means they can't get into their own bed them so be it. Duty comes first.

Wednesday 6 November 2013


Dear Chips

You will have to get ME a new bed if you don't want me to sleep on YOUR new bed for another 4 whole days without moving.

Love from

Not Impressed

I am not overly impressed with the alternative to the cone of shame, although at least I can lick my knees and tail. My arthritis has been playing up and I've licked where it hurts.

I'm sure I've made my feelings on the subject perfectly clear.

Wednesday 30 October 2013


From time to time we have to do impromptu inspections of TJam's dishwasher-putting-away skills.

Today was a pass.

Monday 28 October 2013


13 years or 13 weeks? TJam is beginning to wonder. I love deliveries!

Wednesday 23 October 2013

All's Fair in Love and War

I have perfected a new tack in the "Make  TJam feel guilty about going to work" strategy.

Sunday 20 October 2013

Puppy Sleep

Sometimes on a Sunday I have a proper, tongue-out puppy sleep. Even at my age. I'm twelve now, by the way. That sneaked up on us all.

Wednesday 16 October 2013


Today I will mostly be auditioning for Come Dine With Me

Thursday 10 October 2013

Quality Control

TJam is ahead of herself this year and I am checking the first Christmas present for Brazil. She had better not get too excited though, as the box is definitely bigger than the sum of its parts.

Cunning Scheme

This is the cunning scheme that allowed me to sleep upstairs all night. I think I've found the perfect plan. Apart from getting stuck in the arm hole at 6.30am.

Friday 4 October 2013


Today I will mostly be helping with the washing.

Wednesday 18 September 2013


Any idea how long this might take to hatch?

Tuesday 3 September 2013


While we were camping, I was totally caught napping. I couldn't believe it when TJam showed me this photo when we got home from our trip. How could I have missed that?!

Sunday 1 September 2013


Today TJam actually got the tv guide out for me to sit on. When I was comfy she pulled out ANOTHER guide. It turns out she is using a decoy and I fell for it.
It would serve her right if she accidentally planned her viewing around the wrong one.

Sunday Mornings

I am not so keen on Sunday mornings. Five more minutes please!

Wednesday 28 August 2013

Not Falling...

Why does TJam seem to think I am going to fall out of bed tonight?

Thursday 22 August 2013


If I sneak up after dark and hide in these jeans, no one should find me til morning. Mission accomplished.

Saturday 3 August 2013


I consider it my duty to ensure that TJam never reads a whole book.

Friday 12 July 2013


When the weather is good we take the opportunity for formation sunbathing.

5.9 for technical skills
6 for artistic interpretation

Monday 1 July 2013


We have been on our first hash. Don't worry, it is nothing overly dodgy. A hare laid a trail of flour and we had to follow it and then watch the humans sing silly songs and dance a bit.

Here I am checking we hadn't lost anyone.

Friday 28 June 2013


We drove across Bodmin Moor today. In the fog. Didn't expect to see this. Is it the Beast? There was no hurrying it though.

Monday 10 June 2013


I can make a cat foot knot.

Sunday 9 June 2013

Thursday 6 June 2013


Today I will demonstrate "on" and "under". 
Please save your questions until the end.

Sunday 2 June 2013


TJam has dropped and lost a nut from her tax disc holder. We have all been helping her look for it. Chips is the first to give up on the search.

Monday 27 May 2013


I've been expecting you Mr Bond.

Saturday 25 May 2013


I am back to my happy outdoor self and have had the all clear from the vet. The lump was benign and I can resume normal duties.

Friday 24 May 2013


Nothing like stealing and shredding a letter to help you recover from surgery. That is my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Actually I'm fine but don't tell TJam.

Friday 17 May 2013


I will be spending the evening staring while I recover from my operation today. I am also ready to start my new renal diet. I'm pretty much happy to eat anything as you know.

I will also breathe shallowly every once in a while to freak TJam out.


Hmmm. TJam seems to be looking under the bath. I'd better help her by diving into the work space immediately.

Wednesday 15 May 2013


At the ripe old age of nearly 13 I know when I don't want to go for a walk in the cold rain. TJam and Beanz can leave me here. I will keep the bed warm for Beanz on her return.

Sunday 12 May 2013


Looks like our walks just got a whole lot more exciting.

Tuesday 7 May 2013


Spring has sprung. Spot the dog!

Tuesday 30 April 2013

Chosen One

My name is Beanz and I like to think I'm The Chosen One. Either that or I'm about to be abducted by aliens ...

Saturday 27 April 2013


Nero just totally photobombed my picture.

Friday 19 April 2013


I started the day with some time on TJam's chest...

... followed by some time on the spare bed...

... and then a little sunbathe in the afternoon.

All in all it's been a busy day.

Thursday 18 April 2013


Today is gold citizen reminder day, because there is a barking dog in those bushes behind me and I am walking past. Plus that is the 2nd dog/people in bushes combo we have ignored this evening.

I hope that means extra treats for us tonight...

Any ideas why people/dogs might be lurking in bushes particularly today? Is it a special occasion we don't know about?
