About Me

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!

Rabbit Agility - A New Pet Trend

In the lead up to Rabbit Awareness Week a new trend has appeared in the bunny world, rabbit agility!
Now I've had a go at agility and I know it's not as easy as it looks, some of them jumps are high, so I'm really impressed that these small furries are having a go.
I share my garden with two fluffy bunnies and whilst I can imagine Blizzard having a go I'm not sure about Gizmo, Mum says she's a Lionhead, but all I know is that she's so fluffy I doubt she'd be able to see where she's going!

Here's a video of some rabbits performing agility at the Bradford Excel small animal show, enjoy!

Tina and Chandi from Britains Got Talent 2010

I was happily snoozing away after my tea on Saturday when I was rudely shaken awake by Mum so I could watch this act (Tina and Chandi) on Britain's Got Talent. A lady called Tina was doing a doggy dancing scene with her lovely dog called Chandi, now I was already starry eyed by the blue merle coat but the dancing was brilliant! What an act! I'm rooting for them to go all the way. I just hope there are more doggy acts on the show for me to enjoy.
The only problem I have now is Mum has got it in her mind that we should have a go this summer (although there were some snorts of laughter so maybe they realise I won't pay any attention...)

Enjoy the talent that is Chandi the dancing dog.

Summer is here

Finally the summer has kicked off in style and I'm re-discovering the garden again! After months of rain and snow there are a million different smells to inhale and lots of patches for me to roll in (despite being shouted at for this but most of the time mum can't see me!).
So far I have been round and said my 'hello's' to the neighbouring pack and I have finally met my rival at the back fence, he's actually a very dishy looking Dachshund which was a suprise as I swear from his bark I had thought Labrador.
After talking to the others it seems dogs the street over are enjoying being back out in their gardens, ridding them of territory stealing cats, birds and other wildlife who have taken over during winter.
I've discovered 3 new digging patches and a strange dog bone which has mysteriously appeared, goodness knows where from, I'm not complaining though!
So all I can say is bring on the hot weather so I can spend all weekend out in the garden helping mum dig holes for plants, making sure birds know it's my garden, not theirs and rolling in earthworms and bird poo (a delicate aroma, honest!).
Paws crossed that this year will be warm enough to get out my doggy paddling pool and mum can get some videos of me splashing around and cooling off after a hard day on garden patrol!

Until then, enjoy the sun.

Little Fluff where All The Smart Dogs Go

Looks like I really am getting a slice of fame, mum has put me in the new video for Little Fluff!
I wish I'd known on the day I would have brushed my fur first, ahhh well maybe next time.

Here's a link anyway so you can have a sneak preview!
