Hi everyone…Merry Christmas. Such weird goings on at our house.  I guess it all has to do with this holiday of theirs.  But it has turned out to be a nice one for me too.  I’ve gotten a lot of treats today and my parents gave me a wonderful toy.  I love everything.  And there’s a ton of paper for me to steal and chew on (I don’t think mummy likes that though).  Here are a few pictures that mummy took of me enjoying my stocking and my toy:

(Thank you Max for the yummy treats in my stocking)

This is called the Tornado…it’s on axis and spins and then I find treats hidden in compartments.  I love it.

Injured again…

The darn dog seems to be always injured.  Not sure what it’s all about.  This time the side of one of his pads seems to be irritated…not helped by Barney constantly licking it.  So I gave a sock to the cause:

The snow has remained in the park today, which allowed Barney to have a blast…along with some friends.

Essex…a doodle good time

On Sunday, mummy took me to Essex.  We went to meet a whole bunch of doodles from her favorite website Doodle Times.  We went to a park and mummy was so nice and let me go off lead.  I had a blast!!!  Here are a few pics to show you what went on…

(That’s me with the red collar on the left…I got to meet about 16 other dogs, mainly doodles)

I played a lot of chase and even wrestled some…

The swimming facilities were fantastic (that’s me in the back)…though mummy wasn’t so happy when I shook all over right next to her:

After our swim we ran around a lot…got muddy, but had so much fun!

Some very nice people (like Eric’s hoomin) gave us lovely treats (I’m in the middle of it all between a black and brown dog):

I was a bit naughty at one point and made mummy very very nervous.  I went under some barbed wire with a friend of mine and ran and ran and ran.  Then some horses came and they scared me so I finally ran back toward where mummy had been yelling.  She put me on the lead.  I deserved it.

At the end of the walk we exchanged pressies…I got an amazing red ball that feeds me treats.  I LOVE this ball.  Here’s a pic of me enjoying it in the back garden (before my bath…thanks mummy):

What is this thing?

I was just lying around being my normal cool self (though dealing with a yeast infection in my ears which sucks).  I was loving being in the front room as it’s been closed off since I moved here.  There’s a great rug in the room and mummy & I hang in there now.  Lots of fun smells.   There was a long box next to me which was great as I could lean against it.  All of a sudden mummy moved the box and began to take stuff out of it.  Hey, my box!  And she put together something.  It smells a bit like the back garden, but it’s not lying on the ground.  Weird.  And she freaks out a bit if I get too much into smelling it.  It’s not THAT interesting.

A few days later, mummy began to hang things on this.  Shiny stuff.  It didn’t smell all the interesting but I still had to sniff it.  Mummy told me to go away.  What nerve!  But I did.  I don’t know what the big deal is.  But she won’t let me in the room unless she’s in there.  Bummer. 

Mummy took a picture of the thing and said I could put it on here.  So here it is, whatever it is:


Cold, cold, cold…wet, wet, wet

I’m loving this weather.  It’s just what a doggy with my kinda fur is made for.  I get to splash around and get all muddy and feel much cooler than I normally do.  I love it!  I know mummy and daddy don’t like me all muddy…they seem to want to wash me all the time now.  And I do get bad ears more regularly so mummy keeps putting some sort of powder in my ears.  Mummy and daddy also bought me a new blankie that they put on my couch.  It’s so soft and cuddly.  And I can pull it onto the floor to lie on there.  Yay!  Mummy also brushes me every day.  I like most of it cause it feels so scratchy like.  I don’t like when the bristles get caught in the dried mud, or when she’s doing my beard or legs, but overall it’s okay.  I love the cold and I love the wet.  It’s just so much fun!
