About Me

My photo
I am a home educating mum of 2 living in the Northwest of England. I long to travel with my family (including the fluffs) to see the world and have amazing adventures, because life is too short to worry about paying off a mortgage!

So there's this dog on the estate where we work and he's nicknamed Squirrel Tail (incase you can't guess why, his tail looks like a Squirrels). Squirrel Tail is a macho dog, loves the estate etc but I just can't work out if he's a friend or not. For a start any dog he sees he goes mad at barking, and we're not talking nice barks here, some are just plain insults.  Now I'm no angel - unlike my ID tag says! But even I think he goes a little too far at times. I just can't work out what to do, should I stand my ground and shout back or should I ignore him? Jess, my workmate, is older and so wiser (apparently) and she thinks we should just ignore him and he'll go away but to be totally honest I reckon he's just a bit lonely and grumpy, something Jess should understand she's like that every morning!  It would be nice to be on playing terms though, maybe next time I shall try the understanding approach, watch this space.....

The Rain Returns

Well here in rainy Morecambe the snow has all gone which i'm not to pleased about! No more sledging, eating snow balls and skidding gently when walking on the ice. Although I think my paws may be a little happier for it, all this salt and cold is cruel to the pads and they are a little chapped! Luckily mum has this stuff called Toffi Toes and it's a delicious (really it tastes lovely though I get told off for eating it!) paw balm which helps keep my tootsies soft and crack free. It's like I'm walking on air with it on!

Well here's the last pic of me in the snow *sigh*
As you can see I'm exercising my vocals as well as my legs!

Mum is putting up a new gallery soon for all our furry customer's winter pictures. I will make sure my picture gets the first spot though!

Rex The Snow Dog

Here's Mum's snow dog he is nicknamed Rex and lasted about 4 hours before some cruel people knocked him over :(

There is more snow forecast for Sunday apparently so paws crossed (again) that I'll be able to have a go at building my own snow mate!

Happy snowballing to all x

Snow Days

It has finally happened, we have a good coating of snow that I have spent ages playing in!

Count so far:
Number of snowballs that have hit me - 10+
Number of snowballs I have thrown - 0 (I have paws not hands)
Number of snow dogs that have been built modelled on me - 1 (a very poor representation if you ask me but Mum's done her best!)
Number of snowballs that have hit our neighbour - 8
Amount of snow I've consumed - far too much to estimate but I have brain freeze...

Think that about covers it in statisics.

The only problem now is that it looks as if the snow's melting away so paws firmly crossed that more will come tonight and then I can play more snow biting game and chase Jess. It's great having an older playmate in snow cos not only is she slower but her eyesight is not as top notch as mine which means I always win the chase games, ha!

Enjoy the snow x

Back To Work

Well it doesn't seem two days since we finished for the hols, and already it's time to return to work. Of course I'm rather excited about this as I get to veto all the customers, annoy Jess and get lots of cuddles but Mum doesn't seem to be quite as enthusiastic, though I can't see why!
So tonight I'm getting an early night and making sure I'm fresh as a daisy for the New Year rush.

I've finally decided on some New Years Resolutions too here's the list:

- to get more walks
- to tease Jess more (and steal her toy)
- to get Mum to bake me some treats
- to train Dexter the cat to fetch me my toys
- and finally to find my missing bandana!

So I think starting tomorrow I can fulfil my second resolution pretty easily, I'll keep you posted!
