It's a hard life..

..for a doggie all curled up in front of the heater

Then Mummy comes along with the nasty flashing gadget to wake the poor doggie up.
"What do you want Mum??" (if looks could kill...)

Henry's new coat..

Doesn't my little fella look oh so handsome in his beautiful new coat that his Nana & Grandad bought him

Henry took to his new coat surprisingly well, I can't wait for him to wear it out!
(Sorry about the label still on but I couldn't wait to take the photos)

Henry in the snow...

This was Henry's first experience of snow this morning and I don't think he was too impressed.
"What's all this white, cold stuff Mum??"

"Mum, I hope this doesn't happen too often, this stuff is freezing and it gets stuck everywhere.."

Henry being fascinated by the cows..

The normal 2 minute wee time took nearly 20 minutes this morning as Henry was so distracted by the snow. I suppose that it must be strange for him to see his whole world turn white and very, very cold!!

Role reversal...

...the bunnies were having a run around while Henry was in his crate. It looks like Henry is giving the Stuy the evil eye in this photo

Stuy had a good loon about before tucking into one of his favourite treats Mummy's banana

He then flopped down for a quick snooze (he is 7 years old, bless him) before lots more binkying and running about

It was then Buggy's turn for some bunny madness and a little apple treats hidden under a bottle tops

More from the beach..

Here are 3 videos from our day at the beach.

This is Henry patiently waiting on the sea wall for his Mummy to come back..

Then we went for a paddle in the sea together

On the way back to the car Henry loved clambering across the rocks next to the promenade

A day at the beach..

This was our first visit to the beach with Henry and we all had a great time! Henry enjoyed a paddle in the sea and showed no interest in swimming, getting just a little wet..
6 km later he had dried out completely and discovered rock climbing, he was like a little kid wanting to walk along the wall next to us

Fun with a flowerpot..

Henry enjoyed a couple of hours in the garden with Mummy yesterday afternoon and discovered a new fun thing to do, play with a flower pot. It was quite windy so the pot kept rolling away on it's own and he would chase after it.
It kept him amused while I tried to plant some grasses. Trouble was I kept getting distracted by Henry as I just wanted to watch him having fun.

Henry's new friends...

On this afternoons walk we came across these really friendly cows that were very interested in Henry. He stayed really calm and wasn't phased at all by these huge creatures..

Once one came over, they all came over for a "chat" (well that's what it looked like!)

Even this cow making a beeline for Henry and coming so close didn't bother him at all (he was only held back as a precaution!)

My little Spooky has gone..

..and my world doesn’t feel quite as bright and is quieter somehow without my little boy. He has definitely taken a piece of my heart with him.

Spooky had an operation back in November 2008 to remove a large lump from under his ear, within a short amount of time the lump returned. He has been absolutely fine, even when we noticed the new lump becoming a little softer a few months ago, he was still just my Spooky. It was only a few weeks ago that he started to lose weight despite eating more than ever. Yesterday Spooky suddenly deteriorated very rapidly and he was put to sleep.

He was a wonderful cheeky little bun who loved to eat, binky across the living room and have cuddles from his Mummy. I will miss him very much!

Spooky 20/12/2004 - 04/08/2010

R.I.P and binky free my little angel

I will always love you

Soggy Dog

We thought it would be nice to take Henry for a lovely Sunday afternoon walk around our local lake. The weather was a bit cloudy with no forecast for rain so off we went.
Three miles later we all looked a bit like this...

It was that fine drizzly rain that soaks you through and makes your dog go curly!!
Henry went for the sarong look after being towelled down...

Despite the rain we all had a great time. Henry really enjoyed himself but was quite pooped out and slept all the way home in the car. 4 miles is the longest walk we have been on for quite some time!

Cocker or Otter??

I couldn't quite believe my eyes when I turned around to see Henry playing with his toy like this.....(I also can't believe that I actually managed to get a photo of it too!!)
He played with this toy for ages..
Then he decided to take it to bed with him. Look at that paw holding on, just in case someone came along to pinch his "Duckie"

I can't believe what just happened...

..I had my lovely little Spooky bunny out on my lap for over half an hour while Henry was in the same room and unrestrained.

What a star my wonderful Henry dog is!!!!

He stayed in his bed for a while, then got too curious as to what was happening so came over to the sofa and sat on command. He then sat patiently watching while Spooky ate, walked around on the sofa and slept on my lap. Once Spooky was back in his cage Henry got lots of cuddles and treats for being such a fantastic boy!

Henry has now been with us for just over 7 weeks and has made remarkable progress settling in, we are so lucky!!!!

Henry & Paddy at play...

Yesterday we visited our friends for the evening so that the "kids" could play together.

After much play and general looning about there were two very tired pooches.

Later that same evening Henry was out cold for ages like this...

One very bored dog...

While I have been setting up this blog Henry wanted to be involved, but soon got bored....
