Rainy Saturday

Hi All!

Daisy & Holly here again.

Saturday was a funny day, sort off. Well I got up good and early and jumped onto the bed to say 'Good Morning' to Old Two Legs, you know, paw on the cheek and a good wash of the ear and bald patch on top of his head. I thought it was the best way to wake him up at five thirty in the morning.

He went all 'Grumbly' and went back to sleep again, so, I wandered over to The Missus and gave her a lick, she went all 'Grumbly' as well. I supose it's because they don't get enough sleep, you know they stay up past ten thirty in the evening!

After getting up and taking us for a walk we were both put in the car, 'walkies' we thought, but no, horror upon horror, we stopped at The Vets, oh no, now what?

We went in and got weighed again, 7.6Kg for Holly and 6.3Kg for me. That Holly is getting porkier by the day, too much food!

Surprise surprise, OTL brought a bag of Doggy Lumps that the vet had recommended on our last (booster injection) visit. That wasn't too bad, we got out of there as soon as OTL had emptied his wallet into their till!

We had our walk down by he Sea Wall and then off we went to see The Boys.

Not only did we have our own food brought by TM but there was a fire in a bucket in the garden and food was being cooked on it. Holly and I managed to mug a lamb chop each plus a few bits of meat from different people around the fire!

We didn't dig too many holes but we had a good chase around the garden!

TM & OTL came and collected us, which was good 'cos we were beginning to wonder where they had gone and how long they'd be!

Back home in time for OTL to get a whisky nightcap and for us to get a nibble of shortbread!

See you all tomorrow.

Shampoo & Set

Hello Everyone!

Daisy & Holly here again.

The diary reads 'Not very happy when I woke up this morning'.

Well, you know how much I love having my hair cut and especially being washed by a strange person, other than Old Two Legs, who is strange, but in a nice way!

Today Holly and I were booked in for a 'Shampoo & Set' as OTL calls it.

We parked up outside the Grooming Parlour for ten minutes and had to listen to the unhappy sounds of all those dogs left in the kennels while their owners go on holiday.

The door opened and we went inside and we both remembered that Janet, who does all the hair cuts, was not so bad really, but we did drag our paws a little as we were led off to the holding room!

Well, to cut a long tail short, we got washed, coat clipped, claws clipped, blow dried, sprayed with smelly stuff, clipped again, brushed and combed, told we were pretty puppies and put back into a holding cage.

Holly checked me over and I had a look at Holly and we decided that we both looked 'The Business'

Around midday OTL arrived to picked us up, we were so pleased to see him, Holly did a wee on the floor and I jumped up on top of OTL's shoulders and licked both of his ears!

Then it was a rush to get out of the door and into the car!

Just as a treat, OTL took us off to The New Park, loads of space to run and other dogs to say hello to.

Dancing with Holly
 We told a few about our 'shampoo & set' and they all said how sorry they were but we did look smart.

There was this enormous Alsatian that was looking at us from the path, in play mode, who came bounding over and said that we both looked super and had we just been brushed?

Hello Basil!
When we got down to the Swimming Hole we both had a splash to try and get rid of the smell, Holly said we should have a swim but it was too cold for that!

Keep splashing, the smell is going!
Off home to see TM and Auntie Shelia and some chicken for dinner, then a cuddle with OTL until he got the whisky out and of course, the shortbread!

A fine end to a busy day!

See you tomorrow, we're off to stay with The Boys for a while, well a few hours!
