High Diving Daisy!

Yo Ho Woofers!

It's Daisy & Holly back with you again.

After we were such good puppies yesterday, guarding Old Two Legs against all those people, he decided to give us a treat for being so professional!

Well, actually, what he said was.......'WALKIES'

Which was good enough for us!

He piled us into the car and off we went to the Sea Wall. Of course, when we got there, we were straight around to see the rabbits and this time we sneaked around the bushes and saw them having a nibble of some grass. 'HELLO' we shouted and rushed over to where they were. Of course, being unsociable sorts, they ran away down into their burrow. We stood outside calling to them but they shouted back that they were not in and for us to 'Go Away'!

We didn't care, off we went for a run along the beach investigating all the new sniffs.

OTL still had his old camera with him but he also had his binoculars with him as well, just to look at the birds. He was telling us how he used this camera and a telescope to take pictures of birds. Then he showed us how by using the binoculars instead of the telescope!

Gulls, a long way away!

Then he took a picture of me on the concrete wall, which again was miles away from where he was!

Me, Sniffin Sniffs!
He's a clever old stick sometimes!

When we got back we had a mountain of chicken for breakfast, I mean it was almost spilling over the side of the bowl!

Holly and I finished that off in no time at all, and, after a game of chase around the lounge, we settled down to a good 'after breakfast snooze'

That took us up to lunch time, a few nibbles of dry doggy biscuits and it was off out to the New Park!

We played 'Chase the Ball' and said 'Hello' to a couple of Westies and arrived at the Swimming Hole, OTL did his ball throwing bit for me and I had great fun getting the ball back, that was until OTL did his 'Let's chuck it a bit further out' trick.

I tried to get it but it was just too far out, so I waited for the wind to blow it towards the shore, which it did, but at an angle. So there I was, just out of grabbing distance of the ball before the bottom disappears down to the centre of the earth. What was I to do? So I got ashore and climbed onto the rocks by the side of the water, got all big and brave, and jumped in!

I missed the ball and found my self in deep water paddling like crazy for the rocks! It was a little bit of a struggle to get back out again but in the end I managed it and stood there soaking wet from the tip of my nose to the tip of my tail, and all bits in between!

OTL said I was a brave little puppy and he got the ball back for me.

We had a good game of 'chase the ball' and in no time I was dry again except for my back, which OTL gave a good towelling when we got back to the car.

I was showing off a bit to Holly on the way back home pretending to do my dive again and I said I was like a mermaid, she said I looked more like and old wet sack, and that's when we got told off by OTL for fighting in the car!

Another fun day and I'm going to ask OTL if we can go there again tomorrow, just to try another dive!

Bye for now!
