It's Barney Again!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy & Holly here again!

This mucking about with the clocks has really messed up our 'Sleeping Clock' why can't you lot leave the clocks alone? In fact, why have clocks at all? I mean, sleep when you get tired, wake up when you have had enough sleep then in between, eat!

Just how difficult can that be?

We were up far too early this morning, about an hour by my reckoning and that meant Old Two Legs got his 'Good Morning Ear Lick' while he was still fast asleep!

See what happens when you mess with time!

We were also out early this morning for our walk along The Sea Wall. We managed to chase a rabbit that doesn't have a clock, so he didn't know he could have had an extra hour in bed!

Then Holly spotted a Heron out on the mud flats, wow, we don't often see herons on our beach!

OK, I'm Here!
We were not sure what he was looking for 'cos there's only cockles out there and the odd worm!

What food is here?
We left him to his searching for breakfast but we think he needs some advice from the Oyster Catchers!

OTL pointed out a Curlew on the beach doing his Tai Chi, Holly said that it would be fun to learn how to do it.

That's OK, but I don't really see Holly getting up early in the morning and doing her Tai Chi exercise beside the pond first thing in the morning, she likes her bed too much!

Tai Chi!
I was having a sniff and heard Holly singing to herself, it went sort of 'Do, Do, The Dog Trot, Yeah!'

Doing The Dog Trot!
I almost burst out laughing, she was free of her coat and you could see she was moving a bit better but I think she has a long way to go before getting as good as me!

I was going to make a comment but all of a sudden we heard,

'Hi Girlieeeees!'

It was Barney on his morning walk!

Hi Girlieeeees!
He was chasing his new ball, the one with two colours and he got close to Holly and asked her if she wanted a chew. 'No Thanks' says Holly, 'I'm not a ball type of doggy'

Wanna Chew of My Ball!
Then he spotted OTL crouching down and went over to say hello and get a tickle behind the ear!

Hello OTL!
Of course, OTL threw the ball a few times for him and I joined in trying to get the ball but Barney is too quick off the mark and he has longer legs than me!

Barney says that he has been practising his 'Posing Stances' you know, the one you put on if you want to be noticed or get away with something naughty! Here he said, how about this for my 'Well?' pose?

Here's another, I call this my 'Sneaky Smirk' it's to be used when I know where the sniff is coming from but the Two Legs don't!

A Sniff? Yeah, Right!
It was about then that we got called to go, so Holly and I tried out different Smirks but OTL wasn't looking, so that was a waste of time!

Back home it was a chicken breakfast followed by a super snooze in the day bed!

We love mornings like that!

We finished off the Chicken and I must say, it was a lot, in fact we could hardly get up on the bed, so Holly stayed with me in the office and we both fell asleep until after our normal 'second walk' time.

See, more trouble when you mess around with time!

When we got down to The Sea Wall and as it's Half Term, there were a load of young Two Legs on the beach with some pretty big looking dogs. 

Who The Woofs That?
So, Holly and I just looked at them and didn't do our normal woofing!

Big Dogs!
 You think we're stupid?

Then it started to rain, not a lot but enough to make our coats wet on the back and give us damp heads! So, when we got to the short cut we got ahead of OTL and legged it up the path!

When we looked back, there were loads of colours over Essex, OTL said it was a Rainbow, which was all very interesting if you're into that sort of thing, me, I just wanted to get back to the car and get the heater turned on!

A Rainbow over Essex
Home just in time, more rain, but we didn't care 'cos we were good and warm and the bed was soft, so, we had another snooze to pass the time until dinner time!

So, the lesson for today is, Stop Messing about with Time!

You know it makes sense!

Bye bye for now.
