Chickens

In an odd and very large box at the bottom of the garden we have some very large birds, well finally I was introduced.

It turns out they are chickens and its where my omelettes have been coming from.  So it turns out they are useful indeed and so I must not chase them or eat them, or it will be no more eggs for me.

 

Its Christmas

Well its Christmas and I hope all my fellow hounds at the Lincolnshire Greyhound Trust and the Retired Greyhound Trust got as good presents as I did.

I got a special meal with it being Christmas, a little kibble, some things called brussel sprouts and a whole ducks neck.

Present wise I got a new leather collar and lead for best days out, some treats and on Boxing day my foster cousin, Tilly the Chocolate Labrador came with her foster parents and brought me a box of treats and a new toy.

We also went for a long walk together with Ethan and Sofia, Caroline & Richard’s nephew and niece.  Once we reached the wild open fields of Lincolnshire, Tilly was let of the lead but Richard always keeps me on the lead as he thinks i’ll catch and eat the rabbits.  I would not eat all of them, it is Christmas 😉

Hope you all have a fun Christmas as I did.

a Trip to the Garage and other exciting places

Timmy in the Pub

Today was very busy, after the usual dawn walk in my favourite fields, we headed out in the car to Lincoln.  This time we visited a garage, it seems my car needed two new front tires and as the garage is beside the common it seemed the ideal place for a long walk.  After that we headed into town to the pet shop where I had a nail trim, well it does take a little work to keep looking this good, then it was off to to the up hill area to collect Caroline who also was having a beauty treatment, she was not having her nails trimmed but her hair instead.

After that we all went home via the local butcher to order me a case of chicken and we also all had an ice cream, plain vanilla for me, mango and rum and rasen (double scoop) for Richard, and mint choc chip and mega chocolate (also a double scoop) for Caroline.

Then is was an afternoon of rest before heading to the local pub where I got lots of attention from the local children as is my right.

 

Holiday to Anglesey

I have been on Holiday!

Not just me I should add, I took Caroline and Richard with me so that I could be chauffeured around.   It was a holiday to the Isle of Anglesey, but luckily no boat required, just a bridge.

Lots of walks and a rather nice hotel.  The best bit was they allowed humans to eat in the bar with us hounds and dogs.  One night we had six dogs and hounds together with their staff all eating together, very merry.

Beauty Parlour Time

Fireside Hound

While I am sure will agree a most handsome hound, even I have to work at it occasionally.  As I had a holiday coming up I thought it was time to have a trip to the local beauty parlour and get my nails done.

I understand human females often get their nails done as well and I understand my human cousin Hannah has even had false nails put on at the human beauty parlour.

I did not need to go that far, I just needed a bit of a trim; while Richard and Caroline do their best sometimes you just need a professional to do the job properly.

Luckily there is one just a few miles away in the next village and then could fit me in straight away.

Richard was a little nervous about it at first so I had to distract him by making me feed me lots of gravy bones.  It was soon and my nails were looking lovely all ready for my holiday.
