Double Decker Doggy!

Hi Woofers!

It's Daisy & Holly here.

This morning The Missus got up early, so we took the opportunity for an early morning wee, then straight up to Old Two Legs, who was still fast asleep in his bed and we joined him for an 'after wake up snooze'.

That was until TM started banging drawers and cupboards and generally crashing about!

Poor OTL, he was forced to get up and take us out for our morning walk!

We went around to the Sea Wall and failed to find and rabbits. We would have expected them to have come back from visiting Uncle Barney by now!

So, it was down to the beach for a jog along the wall and do our business. Now we normally like to spread it out a bit, you know, I do it first and in about half an hour Holly leaves a little pile for OTL to pick up. However, this morning we both did it almost next to each other and at the same time.

This pleased OTL 'cos that meant he only used one poo bag, thrifty is our OTL!

Then he walked up to the poo bin to get rid of the well full poo bag.

We got the wrong reason for him deviating off the normal route and thought he was cutting the walk short but just as we were getting concerned, back he comes down the path.

Now, he thought that it was funny seeing the worried look on our faces and took this photo, as he says, we look like a Double Decker Doggy!

OTL spotted a Wheatear bird having a feed on some grubs in the grass, so we rushed up to tell the bird that he should stay still until his photo had been taken, all the bird said was 'Damn Paparazzi', and flew off!

Paparazzi hating Wheatear!
Y'know some birds just don't deserve to be photographed!

As we got closer to the car, OTL put our leads on so that we don't bump into any cars in the car park. Holly spotted it first, there on the other side of the picnic area we saw a big old pussy cat. Trouble was, we had the lead on so that blew our chances of a good 'Cat Chase'!

It just sat there, licking it's chops and pulling faces at us. Holly told it to be careful because we weren't always on the lead but it just sat there being cheeky!

It yawned then shouted to us that we would have to get up early to beat 'Old Tom', from that we worked out that his name was Tom.

Old Tom
Holly called back that the next time we came across him she'd close his other eye for being a saucy cat!

Back home to a breakfast of 'Tinned Doggy Food', not our favourite food, why can't we have chicken or liver or lambs heart or minced lamb and grated carrot or better still, some of OTL's steak?

I thought our luck was in last night when we got some of the chicken stew that TM didn't finish, it was wonderful mixed in with our doggy biscuits!

Most of the afternoon was spent snoozing in my bed, both Holly and me squeeze into it but Holly would rather have all of it to herself and when I try to get in she does her 'Grumble' which attracts OTL's attention and he tells her to 'Shove over' and 'Don't be a Grumbly Puppy'!

It always works!

Mid afternoon I get the 'I fancy a run around' feeling, so a jump up and shove the back of OTL's chair gets his attention. I give him the old 'Hairy Eyeball' treatment and before long we are in the car and back down to the Sea Wall again.

We decided on the Sea Wall 'cos the clouds had come over all grey and rainy looking, plus Holly and me could smell rain in the air, a bit up country but rain all the same!

Stormy Clouds
We were trotting along the wall and spotted some Brent Geese flying across the water, heading for their feeding ground for the night

Brent Geese in a line!
As usual, Holly said out aloud, 'I wonder if they taste like chicken?'

She is so predictable!

Bye bye for now.


Daisy & Holly


  1. Hello you two woofers,you both have some lovely days out ! Its really windy here tonight and I nearly got blown away......but I do like the wind in my whiskers!! Hope TM is feeling better.....
    love yas
    slobbery licks

  2. Watcha you two, I see OTL got that old PS again. Love the double decker shot. TM should have taken you for your afternoon walk to blow that cold away. Anyway OTL dont seem to do a lot apart from giving you a walk, has he retired like me ?? XX

  3. Love the Double Decker shot, you really are two posers. It is getting colder now so you must make sure that OTL puts his coat on because he doesn't have such a gorgeous fur coat like you two.
    We don't see many cats in your Diary or rabbits for that matter but Tom looked a bit fierce, be careful. xx

  4. So TM hasn't lost her touch then waking up OTL.

    I think those rabbits are having you on as it is nearly winter. They sleep in when its cold just to fool you.

    Yet another convert Mike with the PS
