News Flash …… interrupting my chain of “posts” Mama has made me publish this. A picture. Not of me. But of Her. Fabianne. Now don’t go all gooey eyed – she’s only a pup, and a girl pup at that – what’s the world coming to. Anyway, I’ve been a good boy and for once done as I was told asked. She’s got her own blog, but only so Mama can chart her initial progress.

I’ve already been told asked to include her in my blog and I’ve reluctantly happily agreed to do so – so there – here she is ….


Choresday – off to a good start. Yeah? NO! It was only the banging and hollering of the meter reader man at the garden gate, that woke Mama up this morning ….. at 9:50am!! Her excuse was that she’d set Her alarm at 0600 to help Him wake up to catch the 0715 train to London – after that She promptly fell fast asleep.

So, after our brunch (!!!!) and her 14km exercise bike ride we’d hope to go for a walk. However, we reminded her that it was (a) now too hot and (b) the ironing needed doing. Compromise agreed …. Mama would do the sunbathing ironing  in the garden and we’d get to go on Fin’s favourite walk : round the local reservoir.

Both chores completed it was back home for a late tea …. must be something to do with not getting up till 10am or something.

However, there was one more chore left to do …. hose-duties – no not house duties but hose duties i.e. watering the gardens. Uh-oh another compromise loomed. Today was to be an AFD (Alcohol Free Day) Yeah! get real …. this is our Mama we’re talking about! So bottle of wine purchased on the way home from the Reservoir, tuna, cottage cheese and flax seed combo for dinner (that’s us not Her); followed by Mama with a glass of wine in one hand and the hose pipe in the other : what a way to end Choresday. How was yours?


Sorry guys! We published two Friday Flashbacks – got a little excited with our new series – and have now removed next weeks from the blog. So those of you who were quick enough to check it out and see Bobby brawling with a toy – well done – however, you won’t be surprised when you see it again next Friday! Woof! Woof!

You just can’t get the staff these days …….

Have a grrrrreat weekend!

Aroo, roo, roo!

We finally got out for a walk today! Well, She did take us out on Friday (1st time for 6 days), but She’s been very poorly for the last couple of weeks. So we should be grateful that She felt better today and took us out. We’re also very scruffy – for the same reason (Her being poorly), but now She’s getting better we think we’re in for some grooming torture!

We also helped with a bit of gardening. We’re very good at snoopervising. With our help, we made sure She put all the plants in the right place. Then the heavens opened so we went inside, but She stayed out! How silly, we hope she won’t be poorly again tomorrow.

Will get some photos of our hard work & post them shortly.

Merry Monday!

Well Hello! We’re back. Been camping for 5 days. Been back a lot longer. But you know how messy camping can be …… there’s sooooo much tidying up to do. Lady Doris to clean and the house ….. still gets messy even when we’re not around. We’re such domesticated Scottie boys here. But we’re back. Missed you guys.

Here’s a photo of  us in Their bed!
