Wet walk in the park

Yo Ho Woofers!

D&H back with you again.

What a damp day it has been today, we got a dry walk first thing this morning but it seems that every time we stick our heads out of the door, we get wet!

Half way through the morning we decided we wanted a wee in the garden, out we went and it was one of the quickest trips I've ever had!

Lunch time Old Two Legs had to deliver some stuff, so we made a dash for the car and off we went. The windscreen wipers were slapping back and forth every so often, so the rain wasn't very heavy.

Off we went to The New Park and out we fell into the car park, Holly and me rushed into the field and straight away did a wee, well we had gone a long time without one!

It was raining a bit but we decided we should be able to put up with it, well, that was until Holly decided it was getting wetter!

We were walking on the path, behind OTL, and Holly kept stopping and looking back. OTL would call her and she would take a couple more steps towards OTL, stop, look behind her and walk back a couple of steps. Now, you don't need to be too clever to work out that Holly didn't like the rain, she had her wee and now wanted to get back to the car and the heater!

Back we went, well, OTL put us on the lead and we dragged OTL back at a run!

In the car we got a quick rub down with a Highland Tartan Scarf that The Missus sometimes wears. Now it needs a wash before she puts it around her shoulders again!

Back home to a rub down with our own towel then a snooze in the office until we had dried off enough for OTL to give us a brush, we always feel better after a brush!

Tonight we got a real mix for dinner, first of all there was doggy food, mixed with a bit of chicken and then later OTL put some of his gammon steak into our bowls and mixed it up with the doggy food, so by the time we had finished, we had eaten most of the doggy food while trying to get to the chicken and gammon!

OTL took his camera out in the car but left it there when we went walking, so no pictures today!

Tomorrow TM is off to her local crop, so all day with OTL, if it stops raining we may go on an 'adventure', if not, then it may be a hard day sleeping in the day bed!

You have no idea just how tired you can get doing nothing!

Bye Bye for now.

On the Beach again!

Hello to you all,

We're back again!

We had our walk with The Missus this morning and met up with Norrie and her owner Jane. Norrie wanted to know where Old Two Legs was, 'cos she likes him, we said he was at home having a shower. Norrie said that it was something very strange about these two legs, they always want to have showers or baths. It must be because they are afraid to be smelly!

I reckon a good brush down every day is all you need, it gets the little bugs and burs out of your coat and brushes the dried mud off your legs!

OTL was busy in the office again this morning, so we took the time to catch up on our 'after get up snooze', such luxury!

I did have a look out the window when the postman called and woofed a hello to him, but it was raining and he didn't look up at me, so we think he wanted to get home quickly!

Holly was on guard duty and alerted us to his arrival, HA!
She was zonked out on the floor, snoring like OTL!

Holly being Alert!
OTL says that if she was any more alert he'd swear she was alive! Well, I thought that was so funny I nearly laughed my tail off!

Daisy gets the joke!
Soon after that we piled into the car and OTL took us out for a walk along the Sea Wall, which was OK 'cos it was still raining a bit and we didn't want to get soaking wet!

A quick run along the Sea Wall
We were going so fast that we left OTL behind and he hid down one of the stair wells. We were a little worried in case he had got lost or had fallen into the sea, but Holly found him and woofed him to 'Keep Up'!
Keep Up OTL!
We don't want any dawdlers on our run!

The afternoon was spent chewing rawhide and sneaking onto OTL's bed. One time he caught us and I tried to look all innocent and wistful, but it didn't work and he chased us off and made us take the rawhide off the bed as well!

Me looking Wistful. I do Wistful as well as Cute!
Tonight we think there is liver for dinner and together with a couple of chewy biscuits followed after with a knobbly end of OTL's Twiglets, plus what we can mug from their dinner, we would have done OK!

See you tomorrow.


Daisy & Holly (Silently Alert, not sleeping, honest!)
