Daddy time

Almost every evening I get what he likes to call “Daddy time”.  This usually involves my daddy encouraging me to come up on the smaller couch (if I’m in the mood) or daddy pulling me up onto the couch (when I’m not in the mood).  Regardless of how I felt initially about being sucked into daddy time, I end up loving it.  Daddy and I lie down next to each other and cuddle.  Sometimes he even lets me sleep, which is usually what I wanted in the first place.  Mummy thinks that we’re very cute together and has taken tons of pictures of daddy time.

And don’t worry.  I also have mummy time.  But that usually involves me, a ball or my blankie, running around and then a ground floor cuddle and full face lick  cause I’ve fallen all over her in my attempt to get the ball or blankie away from her.  Mummy time is pretty cool too, though not as relaxing.

Even Barney was interested in watching a show on the evolution of the dog.

I wish I could get a really good video of Barney’s eyebrows.  I am totally mesmerized by them on a regular basis.  He has the ability to move one separate from the other.  And as they are long, they move all over the place. 

I mean, how could you not love the look of these eyebrows?!  They give him soul and character.  They’re gorgeous!

I had a birthday on January 16th.  I got more pressies which was totally awesome.  Some of them, my mean mummy put in my box so I can’t get to them.  She SAYS that she’s going to give them to me throughout the year so I can enjoy my birthday for days to come, but I’m not so sure.  I keep going to the box to sniff it to make sure she doesn’t just get rid of my new toys.  She did let me keep a few things.  I got a few new collars which are like my older red one that you can see in some of my pics.  I look very handsome in red with my black hair.  So she took off the tags from my beaten up small collars and put them on the red ones.  Now all I wear is red.  Sexy, eh?

I also got a new sleep pad to take place of the futon.  Mummy loves the new sleep pad as it doesn’t take up as much room as the futon.  I loved my futon as I could pull it all out and spread it in the room, so I miss it, but the sleep pad is okay.  I suppose I’ll get used to it. 

My FAVORITE new toy is a bouncy ball!  It’s soo cool.  It’s chewy, so even when it’s not bouncing, I get a lot of pleasure out of it.  I haven’t destroyed it which has made mummy and daddy very happy…I just gnaw on it.  My fav thing though is when either mummy or daddy bounce the ball around the house…it goes either against the couch or into the kitchen.  Not high bounces, but just enough to make it fun.  I chase it, fall all over and get to hear mummy and daddy laugh, which is a sound I love.  Then back to chewy, chewy.  Yay me!

I am so tired.  I love my mummy, but she kept me up all night long.  Seriously.  I was happily sleeping on the couch, very comfy, when all of a sudden she barged in with pillows.  What the heck?  I thought it was bed time.  But she didn’t turn on the lights or anything.  She just went and closed the curtains in front of the kitchen doors and put pillows in front of all the electronics (guess the lights on them are irritating).  And then she began to make a weird noise.  Really weird.  Almost like when I have a hairball, but louder.  Come on mummy, I’m trying to sleep and you keep making these sharp loud noises.  It’s not fair.  Okay…a bit of silence.  Maybe I’ll be able to sleep.  Oh, but no.  It’s started again.  And to be honest, it went on almost all night long.  And now she’s staying home with me.  Daddy left like normal, but mummy is here.  At least she’s giving me rubbies, but she doesn’t want to play the way she normally does.  Her eyes seem to have water coming out of them after she makes that noise.  And she seems to love all that tissue stuff cause she wipes her face with it all the time.  Wish I could eat them but she throws them away too quickly.  Mmm…used tissue.  I hope she doesn’t stay downstairs again tonight.  I need my beauty rest…there’s a cute little beagle I play with every day. 😉

Snowball mania

I think one of the few who will be sad to see the snow disappearing (in London) will be dogs.  Barney has loved, loved, loved having a back garden full of snow for him to play with.  The other night, Roy and I went out back to film him having snowball mania…he’s so cute!  Here’s our youtube video of Barney playing catch the snowball:
