Well, not the type that Kyla hunts, that’s for sure! We don’t have those kinda snakes here in the UK. Ours are little bitty grass snakes, but boy did it make Her scream! She masked it by screeching at Bobby to “wait!” “wait!” There was about a trillion of these little human “yaps” whilst Bobby scurried after said “snake”. Then She took off in a fast scurry to catch up with Bob. The “snake” circled a tree, popped it’s head out to see where Bobby was, saw him still following, and so wriggled away deeper into the undergrowth. Phew!
Bobby then concluded that there were “snakes in the grass” all over the place, and not to be outdone, Finlay wanted to find his own snake. Thank goodness he didn’t succeed with that.
Me, Gus, I just watched it all from a distance.
Talking it all in my stride …….
(PS – no photos: snake too quick, She to screechy to act sensibly!)
Oh My! Gus really got told off yesterday. Really. There was screaming and hair pulling – the full works. Why? Well, he was doing his usual Kitchen Assistant thingy, when She accidentally dropped a chicken bone on the floor. It was one of those really nasty ones. Well, within a nano second he’d “sucked” it up and she was yanking on his beard screaming at him to “drop it!” Suffice to say, no chicken bone re-emerged. We’ve never seen our Peeps sooooo interested in our, well Gus’, poo before!
We hope he’s okay. He’s being his usual self at the moment, but She’s keeping a very close eye on him (and the things he does!)
Keep ya paws crossed that we don’t have to visit the Dogster!
Oh! If only! Now that She’s got her own blog, we can’t get to the computer anymore ….. its so unfair! We’ve got things to do, like replying to the Award thingy that Kyla mentioned and we need time to be able to do that right. So I suppose that whilst we can’t get our paws on the keyboard, we’d might as well start to jot down a few notes. Okay – so we’ll do it that way.
We’ve still be out on our walks, at least She’s not forgotten about those! The Blackbirds and Robins are building nests in our gardens, so we’ll have lots of babies to sniff out later. A Heron took one of our Ghost Carp (Jacob or Marley, she doesn’t know which) and so theres a big trellis board placed over part of the new pond to try and discourage any repeat performance. It seems that the fish like to “hang” around under this so They are thinking of putting in another bridge thingy – that’d be fun, it will be another way we can get over the pond to the other side – hope it will have paw rails like the other one – we’ll speak to Her about that.
Went camping in our motorhome last week – great fun – lots and lots of walks (not that we don’t get lots anyway – but these were different walks, with different smells and lots more pee mail to leave) She saw 4 pesky squirrels whilst we did manage to catch a glimpse of one! Not got many photos of our long weekend, simply because we went to this place last year, and we’re going again soon, so we hear.
Anyway, She’s off the Tai Chi now. We’ve noticed that She’s not fed us …. we’ll it is rather early and we did have a late breakfast, so we’re sure we can wait a little while longer, well maybe me & Bobby can, but Gus? Now that’s a different matter.
Wow! That’s something. Now, if you know Gus, like we do, you’ll know that he’s not into cuddly stuff or sitting on laps. He likes to stay on the floor and sleep. Every now and then he’ll let Her roll him over onto his back so that She can tickle his chest. This isn’t something he wants – it’s something She thinks she needs to do. So, today we go for a walk with a friend of Hers who’s brought along Eric, a Jack Russell. After the walk, They have coffee and Bobby and Eric start playing and it’s at this point that Gus decides that he wants some cuddling. So, he jumps onto the settee and sits with Her friend …… for ages and ages!
Bobby and I (Finlay) think he’s going soft in the head – well he is 13 after all.
Anyway, less of the picking on Gus; we all had a really lovely walk and Eric is fun to be with, he’s got oodles of energy and “springs” in his legs ‘cos he can’t half jump high!
We all had carrots and bonios on our return. Eric was a little doubtful about the bonios (he’s got little teeth, not like us Scotties) so he had to have his bonio broken up into small pieces. He didn’t eat all of the pieces though ‘cos Bobby kept “lobbying” Eric – it was fun to watch.
We all had our half baths after Eric and Her Friend left and now we are happily awaiting our tuna, rice and cottage cheese dinner.
