A Dragonfly for OTL!

Yo Woofers!

D&H back again and looking forward to the weekend.

We went out with The Missus this morning and bumped into Norrie and Jane, for the second time this week. Norrie is a big soppy long haired type of Labrador dog who gets all excited when she sees Old Two Legs and rolls on her back to have her tummy tickled!

When we got back OTL gave us our brush and as a reward he gave us a Doggy Choccy Drop together with the worming tablet. Now come on, just how daft does he think we are?

Choccy drop gone, spit out tablet!

Just to get his hopes up, we lick the tablet a couple of times, well, he did go to the extra expense of getting a 'Flavoured' Worming Tablet, in fact the taste was something like Marmite! Which is not all bad but you couldn't live on it all the time!

We went out at lunch time and had a run around the Riverside Park, not very long 'cos OLT had to deliver some stuff in Dartford, which was OK really 'cos on the way back, The New Park, again!

We had a good run there and said hello again, to the now bald Not Not Neddies!

Bald Not Not Neddies
They couldn't get away 'cos we sneaked up on them, so after woofing 'hello' they whistled and stamped their feet and got all 'showy off', so we blew another raspberry and ran off to the swimming hole where OTL started taking pictures of a Dragonfly that was flying all over the place!

Southern Hawker, we think!
  On the way back, we stopped at the Not Not Neddies again and saw what a mess they looked after they had their haircut, Holly reckons they should had asked for their money back cos they looked worse than sheep after they've had their hair cut, and that's really bad!

Let's face it, if we came back from our hair cut like that OTL would have a thing or two to say!

Getting back to the Worming Tablets, we've had some fun. It took OLT a half an hour to make sure I had swallowed all the tablet. He tried giving it whole, wrapped in some liver, then cut in half, wrapped in some liver and finally, crushed and spread over some liver!

Holly took the whole tablet, wrapped in some liver and swallowed it down in one go, but she has always been a greedy puppy!

Friday tomorrow, half day and an adventure, providing it's not too hot!

Bye the way, we hope Jaspers ear has got better and that he has not turned into a cat, you have to be careful when eating cat food, you start looking at birds and thinking, 'I bet that tastes nice'!

Bye for now!

A day in the park

Hello Woofers,

Daisy & Holly here again.

What a wonderful day it is, sun shine everywhere, Holly has been in the garden catching up on her tan and I've been burying her bone in the flower bed, but don't tell The Missus or I'll be in deep poo!

We were just lazing about when Old Two Legs gets a phone call, it was TM calling to say that she was just down the road and she had brought The Boys with her to see us.

Well, there we were sitting at the bedroom window watching out for her and getting all excited and woofing and jumping up and down.

Then they arrived, it was a mad few minutes saying 'Hello' to everyone and woofing and running around the house.

OTL retired to the office where he was playing with some radio stuff and we had a snooze on our day beds.

There was a 'Ding Dong' from his computer and a message flashed onto the screen, it said 'Daisy & Holly to the vets for Worming Tablet', oh no, not the worming tablet game again!

It's always good fun this is, OTL tries to get us to swallow the tablet and we keep spitting it out!

This means OTL has to try loads of different foods he can hide the tablet in so we won't notice. Does he think we are that stupid? We can smell a Worming Tablet a mile away!

The Boys arrived and after a bit of lunch we all went off vet for the Worming tablets and then onto The New Park.

It was great, loads of other dogs and we had a run up and down the hill, at least The Boys are faster at running than OTL!
Kicking up Dust!
We stopped at the swimming hole for a paddle to cool off, we didn't go swimming 'cos there were other dogs jumping in and splashing everyone!

A Cool Paddle
 Then The Boys decided to have a paddle and Holly suggested a swim but they said no because it was too deep. Holly said it wasn't deep as it only came half way up a duck, but they didn't believe her!

What about a swim?
What with all the splashing going on, we went over the bridge and I pretended I was flying again!

A Flying Doggy!

We wanted to see down into the field where the Not Not Neddies lived but we couldn't see that far, so, we did our trick of 'Pick us up OTL' and he did!

Then we could see into the field!

Left a bit OTL!
Over in the next field we saw the Not Not Neddies and woofed a 'Hello' but they just stamped their foot and whistled at us, so Holly and me blew a big raspberry that made OTL jump and nearly drop us!!

A bald Neddy!
 Another fun day over, we are going to bed early tonight and think of somewhere to go tomorrow.

See you soon.
