Damp Day for Daisy

Hello Woofers!

D&H back again.

Today started out just super, we had our walk and got some chicken for breakfast. Afterwards we ran into the garden and I found the chew that Holly had hidden, you can't get past my nose! I had a chew and Holly just sat there giving me the 'Hairy Eyeball' until I'd finished with it, then she grabbed it and ran away to hide it again!

A little later Old Two Legs came down stairs with a box of stuff and said he was going out. Well, he goes nowhere without us! So me and Holly sat by the front door making sure he couldn't go anywhere without us seeing!

Off we went to deliver some stuff and afterwards he took us down to a beach. I sort of remember this beach before but Holly says she has never seen it before.

With all the sunshine, Holly and me just lazed on the beach while OTL sat there taking photos. There wasn't much to photograph, well I didn't think so!

Holly Beach Belle

OTL says Holly is a Beach Belle, I just think she is a Ding-a-Ling!

Daisy calling for a Cocktail Drink

We tried to get OTL to serve us drinks and nibbles again but he said he was on strike and we could get them ourselves!

We went onto the pier to see the fishermen and try to get some fish or a nibble of their sandwiches but no one had caught any fish and they had hid their food, they must have seen us coming!

Worm bathing!
After all that, we headed back to the New Park where OTL said we could have a good run around 'cos we'd been such good puppies. Well that was OK by us and I was in a mood for chasing balls and sticks.

OTL hadn't brought our ball so we hunted around and before long found an old, well chewed ball that he threw for us to chase. By the time we'd got to the Swimming Hole, we'd lost it again! So OTL found a bit of a branch for us to chase and when we got to the Swimming Hole he threw it in.

As it was hot I didn't mind going in after it and soon was swimming a little to get the stick. At one time I even put my head under the water to grab the stick, which was OK but I couldn't breath, I could hear Holly calling out 'Breath through your ears', which was a bit daft 'cos my ears were under water as well!

Breath through your ears!
 I'm getting all big and brave now and the water is not so scary as before.

 After our run, I was still a little damp and OTL said I looked like a drown rat which I thought was unkind, my tail looks a lot better than a rats tail!

A little Damp Daisy!
Holly was all dry so she let me cuddle up to her on the way back to help me dry off.

We all went to the vet with Holly and the vet says that she is getting better and he still didn't know what Holly had got on her nose. It could have been a plant like nettles or mites, or even some chemicals she found on the beach. All we do know is that she is getting better. She has medicine for the rest of the week and she is to keep taking that and only come back if there is any sign of her nose getting worse.

Well, that was good news, and I got to get out of there without the vet looking at me, so that is also good news!

OTL put me on the weighing machine and I was 6.8Kg, which OTL said was good.

My nose is much improved, thank you for asking!
Holly said that now she doesn't mind the close up photo, now that her nose is better and she is going to be careful just where she sticks it in the future!

Off to bed now as it has been a long day and we feel a little worn out.

I must make a note in my iPaw to take a ball with us next time!

Bye bye for now!


Daisy (Damp) & Holly (Looking Good Again)


  1. Glad Holly is better again, she takes mean close up.

  2. Is the Ipaw cheaper than the Ipad? Get OTL to put a ball in the car so you always have one. The fishermen are getting wise to you two mugging there food.

  3. You should go for the worms they are taste

  4. Well done, another good day with lots of goings on, glad to hear that Holly is getting better and also that OTL bought you that I-Paw.
