Christmas Day...

On Sunday before Christmas we all had a family day in Morecambe with Mum and Dad, Aunty Jilly (Willy Woo), Uncle Matty, Thomas, Grandma and Grandad Morecambe and Grandma's Dad (suppose he's my Great Grandad then, he's a nice chap). There was a real house full and Mum let me open some of my pressies early - I got a fantastic green ring that cleans my teeth and I can play tug of war with, and I got a rag tugger and some 'sweeties' that are like bacon (they were all from Aunty Jill (Willy Woo). All the humans went out to the pub for dinner so I had a good old snooze and was all giddy again when they got back. I kept lookout for shadow the cat though, just in case!
Well, I had a quiet Christmas Day really... I went for a long walk with Mum and Dad then they went out for a bit of fishing (I didn't go because it was a bit too cold and they were fishing out of the boat and I get really shivery if I'm not running about). So, after they'd gone I went back to bed (after I'd had a sniff at the pressies!).

They came home at lunch time and they were frozen (they're bonkers I think when there's a cozy fire and some food here at home).

We opened all our presents once they'd got a cuppa - I got some fab 'sweeties' from Aunty Jilly (Willy Woo) and some 'bake 'em yourself' biscuit cutters and an instruction book for Mum from Grandma Morecambe, can't wait for Mum to have a go at baking some, she says she needs to go shopping first.

We went for a walk in the afternoon, it was nice coz the sun came out a bit. Then after tea I let Mum and Dad watch telly while I hogged the fire! Woofy Christmas to all my fans - BIG LICKS and hope Santa got you all what you wished for.

A Weekend Away at the Seaside...

Well, Dad was away with his pal Ian this weekend so Mum and me went to stay with Grandma Morecambe.
We went on Friday and came home on Sunday. On Saturday we had a nice walk on the beach at Hesham, there were some puppies on the beach and they were very funny, one was a border collie who was very well behaved and the other was a beagle, not so well behaved. Anyway I showed them who was the boss and ran up and down the beach like a proper doggie. We were lucky with this walk as it wasn't raining but later (after Mum and Grandma had been shopping for ages), it was raining like mad. Mum was a bit embarrassing as she made me a coat out of a carrier bag, I'm glad it was dark, we went for a walk round the houses and went to see the house on Lincoln Close that has loads of lights on for Christmas. There was a nice man there who raises loads of money for charity, I liked the lighted up raindeer and I wanted to water it but Mum told me not to! I was glad of the carrier bag when we got back coz Mum and Grandma were soaked but I wasn't so bad!
On Sunday morning I went to the beach again with Mum, coz Grandma had gone to pick up Grandad. When we got back it wasn't long before Grandma and Grandad came home, it was ace to see Grandad coz I don't get to see him very often. He made a fuss of me and I showed him my new teddy ducky, I was showing off a bit shaking it like I was killing it - I also had a bit of a bark at the cat outside the patio window. I like to show Grandad that I was guarding the house.
Mum didn't take many pictures of me coz Dad had the proper camera, so she took some on her mobile phone and she's going to try to work out how to put them on the blog, so we'll have to wait a bit!

My Friend Sammy!

Tonight my uncle Nige called round and he brought my friend Sammy. She is an old girl (Nige says she's 17!) but she always makes herself at home when she comes round.... last time she got in my bed! This time Mum gave her my cushion to sit on, here she is....

Any way it was nice to see her and uncle Nige. My mum always gives Sammy some of my treats, I don't mind too much coz she's so old, she needs to keep her strength up.

A walk on Brid beach...

Sometimes when Mum goes to work it's a bit of a bummer coz I have to stay at home on my own. Today Mum took me with her - it was ace. She had to go to a meeting and I had to wait in the car (don't worry I was OK coz it was a chilly day and she left the car in the shade anyway and the window open a bit).
The meeting was in Bridlington! So after we went for a bit in the car and I thought we were going back home, then we got out and we were at the beach! We walked and ran a bit and I chased my ball - I got to play with the squeeky one for a bit but then the sea got in it and it stopped squeeking so Mum gave me the red one with legs.
I had an ace time running about and paddling a bit (it was a bit too cold to swim in the sea I can tell you so I just got my paws wet). It was a really sunny day and I found some stuff to sniff at on the beach too - there was a big crab shell and a dead seagull, Mum told me not to sniff that.
There were lots of other dogs on the beach but I didn't go meet any of them coz they all looked busy and I didn't want them to get my ball.
I hope I can go again next time Mum has a meeting in Brid.

A nice day for a drive out!

Today Dad took me and Mum for a drive out in Mum's spitfire. It was the first time I had been in the car for ages, last time it backfired and I nearly ran all the way home! Anyway it was a nice sunny day and Mum said it would be good to go for a spin, so off we went. I had to get wrapped up in one of my fleece coats because they insist on having the roof down and I didn't want to get a chill - it's all right for them with their hats and gloves. There is a little seat behind Mum and Dad's for me to sit on and they put my special harness on and make sure I'm fastened to the roll bar for when Dad goes right fast round bends!

Mum forgot to take the camera so there aren't any pictures of me today but here's a picture of Dad driving the spitfire before.

Oh, we did stop on the way home for a nice walk along the Selby canal, we only saw 3 other dogs though so not much sniffing to be done.

A long walk and some camping!

My Dad decided that he wanted to go off backpacking this year. So he sold our big tent and bought us a teeny weeny tent and some spanking new light weight gear. He spent ages on the tinterweb thingy trying to find out what was good and what was not so good and what wasn't so heavy. I had to laugh though coz him and Mum still had massive rucksacks and they looked really heavy!
We went up to the Lakes and met Uncle Sammy and Aunty Pen. Mum made me wear some pyjamas so I wouldn't get cold!

The next day we did a really long walk and then we camped again up in the hills next to a tarn, it was ace!

It was a bit cold during the night and it was very windy - so I decided to sleep on Mum's pillow, I don't think she minded too much.
The next day we went for an even bigger walk up some right big hills and there was some bits where I was nearly rock climbing.
I got a bit told off for getting too fast on the way down,
I think Mum was a bit tired!

I hope we can go again next year.

More holiday memories....

We had such fun on the beaches in Devon, I do love to run about and go swimming in the sea...
Here I am on the sands one windy day (that wind gave me a bit of a 'bad ear day').

Another day it was less windy and I found a piece of tube to chase into the sea, it was great fun...

Then we went to another place which didn't have too much sand, it was quite rocky and the tide was coming in, but I had a great time 'rescuing' some big bits of seaweed....

All that fresh air and exercise makes me a bit sleepy though....

I love a stroll on the beach....

This year on Mum's birthday we went for a stroll on the beach at Cleethorpes with Aunty Shell and Uncle Mark and their dogs - Toby (big mate) and Milly (that's them in the picture with Aunty Shell). It was a breezy day and we ran and ran and ran.

Here's a picture of me and Uncle Mark, it isn't as bad as it looks honest! He had my frisbee and wouldn't let go!!
After we got home they all had cake and tea and I just had a good sleep. I love the beach though, it's ace.
