Oakley's Interior Design Service!

Breathing a tad fresher air today! Phew! No botty-tickling-squeaky-pheeper to interfere! Well.....less evidence anyway! Ahem!

Mummy is still a bit wobbly so Dad and I have left her to rest today while we have gone off on a couple of leisure walkieses. So, basically, a day off for me! No complaints! A leisurely wander along the towpath for Daddy to play with his one-eyed-clickybox is fine for a change. Then plenty of time to gnaw on my now many bits of bones (the really yummy bits are all gone - just the mega hard crunchy bits left now), and plenty of sofasnuggles with Mummy.

I just took Daddy out for our evening wander and the sky leaked all over us. When we got back, Mum had done her usual stroking the floor thing. A good bigshake soon sorted out that silly mistake for her! White hot-panel, sofa-front, cupboard doors - all nicely freckled now, and the floor is much better with pawprints design!

Smartypants Strikes Again!

Phooowaaarrr! It's a bit niffy around here! And there is something squeaky that keeps tickling my botty too! I haven't found the little beastie yet; It pongs too much. I simply have to move to the other end of floatyboatyhome. But then the little stinky oik follows me and repeats the procedure! This has been going on all day. I've had no peace!

Mum says it needs to be bottled and sold to the police as a riot dispersing gas. She says it is something to do with bone-bum and scavenging. She does burble some weird ideas sometimes!

I'm very glad Mum is feeling better enough today that we were able to escape the air pollution for a while to go shopping. I did have to strut my stuff as, although she is feeling lots better, her eyes are doing her a dafty today. I did manage to impress her: The first part of the route we took was where I have been with Dad before, but then we went onto new territory. Apparently Dad's talkybone was telling us where to go. Mum and I were walking ahead of him and he was giving us instructions from behind like 'cross over then go next right'. That was fine. It was working well. As we crossed over the road, Mum just told me 'Let's go find Lidl's'. I looked up at her to acknowledge receipt of the instruction then guided her around a puddle and on up the road. Then, as we approached the corner, I recognized that we were approaching Lidl's. I may have gained a slightly triumphant extra bit of speed and Mum had to remind me to 'Steady'. When she realised what I was heading for though, she called me smartypants and gave me a big fuss! I just took her to the kerb, across the road in into the shop!

Inside, I did my usual job of making sure she didn't bump into things as we went around the aisles. I found her the carrots too - well, of course I did! The most important item to get! When we came to the big see-through cupboard things with lots of white bottles in it, I thought I had the most perfect reward for my hard work. There was a huge puddle of that yummy white stuff all over the floor! I started to do my duty by lapping it up, but Mum was a meanie! She said that I couldn't have all four pints of it! Harrrumph!

I did get a nice big juicy carrot on arrival back home. I think I can forgive her!

Wobbly Mummy...

A day with a poorly Mummy means a quiet snoozy day for me - but with the bonus of a lovely big bone to chomp! I don't like having a poorly Mummy but I DO rather love the bone bit!

Mummy seems to be on the mend now but she seems to go all wobbly when she stands up and it is not because floatyboatyhome is wobbling! Hopefully all will be well again tomorrow, but for now, I shall enjoy continuing to work on my bone - well actually now it is 6 bones! Heehee! Yummmmmm.....

Disused Canals & Disused Railways...

I've had a Freerun, I've had a Freerun!!!

Not just any old Freerun. I met a friend. Actually, I met several friends. So many ear rubs. We have been back to Bridge Church. And Dory was there with her manhuman Craig. Well, I just had to get Mummy to take us for a Freerun afterwards.

Then it was back in the boring old car to go back to our Floatyboatyhome. And there was Lindsay waiting for me! She had got the hotbox glowing, so our Floatyboatyhome was nice and warm. I may of, ahem... got a tad carried away.

Something strange happened next. Mummy lay on MY bed! Daddy had to get everything out of the car and unpack. He didn't feed me until he had finished. It was over half-an-hour late! Did I get any extra to alleviate my starvation? No I did not! Huff! Daddy made himself something to eat, but not Mummy. She was catching zzzzzzz on MY BED!

Daddy took me out for a nice walkies, though. Although I am a little bit worried. He was muttering something about disused canals and disused railways. I have a feeling my next walkies could be rather boring. Or worse, Daddy might go without me!

By the way, did I say I've had a Freerun today?

Successful Surgery!

Another humankennelblock! Another human yummyery! Another freerun! aaaaaand....lots of car riding. That about sums up today. Oh...and a couple of workywalkieses too.

We said bye byes to Puppa, then I took Mummy on a nice long workywalkies. She got it all wrong though. She insisted that we keep 'Straight on' past the bestest park in Shoreham! Huff! I am supposed to be the one who decides the best and proper route to take! I'm sure that park would have been much safer and more pleasant than the busy roadside!

Daddy came along a while later and picked us up in the car, which was all loaded up with bags and stuff. Then, a long drive later, we arrived on familiar territory; it was by a canal, where our floatyboatyhome was, on and off for quite some time. Mum says it is called Woolhampton. We were at a human yummyery called the Rowbarge. Inside we met lots of humanfriends - all floatyboatypeople! Before we had to 'find the table', I got to take Mummy for a brief workywalkies along the towpath. That was an exciting opportunity to have a good sniff and catch up on the old local gossip. I managed quite successfully to con Mummy into lots of sniffings before I actually did do my necessaries! Heehee! She somehow seems to know when I need to download, but, if I do enough indications but then twirl and sniff but hang on, then I get lots more opportunities! It is a technique that often works well! It certainly did today! Heehee!

It seemed like ages under the table and not a single crumb fell my way! I was a good boy though and just did what I am supposed to do; I laid down beside Mum and endured all the endless yacketying!

The best bit came soon after that: A brief pause outside to pose with the crowd for Dad's one-eyed-clickybox, then we set off for a lovely freerun along the towpath and then back around beside the huge puddle. It was lovely! A welcome energy release!

Now after a bit more car riding, we are in a new humankennel in Newbury. I got my dinner a bit early because, when we arrived I did my bestest pleading waggytailed pathetic 'I'm starving Mummy' act and it worked! Then Mum checked her tickydisk and discovered it was before my time! Heehee! I then took Daddy for a short leisure walkies to the nearby big Tesco's and we got MummyDaddytea.

Now, having performed successful surgery on my squeaky carrot toy, I think I am ready to settle down to a good snooze.

Little Green Balls.

Have I shrunk? I'm sure I must have done...... last time I met up with Chrissie pup I was MUCH bigger than her! I had to just hold the tug toys for her to pull with all her might. Today she was almost as big as me and she was winning the games of tug! Oooh! It was fantabulous fun though!

It all started with taking Mummy workywalkies to the huge Tesco's near Puppa's home. There, we met Daddy and Puppa. Then we all got in the car and went on a bit of a journey. When we stopped my tail went berserk! We were in the driveway of the home of my Puppymummy and Puppydaddy Sue and Mike! Sooooo exciting! Mum accused me of erupting from the car when she opened the door! Well....I suppose I was a tad keen! Who cares that I was still half wearing my car-bra? !! Oops! Bra removed, some decorum restored....then we went into the huge garden.......Chrissie came out to meet us aaaaaannnnnddddd........WWAAAAYYYYHHHAYYHAAYYYYYY! It was riot time! Never mind greeting the humans, we doggies had soooo much fun to get on with! By the time we got a little bit tired, Chrissie had transformed from a pale creamy colour to a kind of speckled murky brown! Heeheee!

Of course, it was super lovely to meet and greet Puppymummy Sue and Puppydaddy Mike too! I always love to see them again.

After being dragged away from that fun, we got back into the car and rode to the same human yummyery as yesterday! There we met up with Rosie and minihuman Hallie again. That was time to snooze under the table - but with a vigilant nose towards Hallie's seat-on-sticks! My attempts to stay alert were rewarded! I got quite a nice feast of little green balls and a few long yellow sticks! Mmmmmm! It helped to restore some energy after the play exertion. This was followed by a visit to Rosie's house and a time of keeping out of the way while Hallie was to-ing and fro-ing with all sorts of toys. I did manage to wash up the hissing furball's food bowl. There wasn't much worth having in it but it was worth a lick!

Now, on the sofa with Mummy, I seem to be having a little trouble keeping my eyes open.......zzzzzz.......

Snarly little NoseNipper.

Cor! We've moved again! Now we are with Papa in Shoreham. I like it here. I get to snuffle as much as I like around the garden, I have to sleep on the sofa (Papa's instructions and I'm not arguing!) and he always has yummies for me! Mum says I would get porky if we stayed for long! I think she is talking daft!

The day, leading up to getting here, was eventful.

It all started with having a lie-in while Daddy took Mummy to have breakfast. I'd already been out to do what a doggy has to do first thing in the morning, then I got my brekkie and went back to bed. When Mum and Dad got ready to go, I managed to huff well enough to convince them to leave me! Well....that bed was sooooo comfy!

When they came back, i got to take Daddy walkies and we left Mummy to pack the bags. When we got back it was everything into the car and set off. We didn't go all that far to begin with. Daddy dropped off Mummy and me to do workywalkies along the pawmenade. I got a bit excited and rather hoped Mum was going to remove my harness and lead and let me go zoomies on the beach, but no. I had to work! That was OK though. I settled down to the idea and we began to enjoy a nice stroll together. I was doing my job so that Mum could look out to the big blue sploshy stuff and enjoy what she could see. This was working well until I got 'greeted' by a little pink fluffy snarly yappy ball of fury. I stopped dead in my tracks to try to work out what it was. It took Mum by surprise too. She said it was a tiny terrier wrapped in pink fluff. It was nasty to me! Snarling, snapping and yapping in my face. I was a good boy for a few moments and just stood there, but I got a bit naffed off and returned the compliment with a little growl and a single woof. It did work for a moment; it startled the little nosenipper into silence and it backed off a bit from me. Apparently it was called Felicity. That was what a lady human called out from the other side of the pawmenade. This lady human called me a big bully beastie! Hufffff! I did nothing except to express my displeasure at the little in-my-face nosenipper's nastiness! After a few yips between Mum and this ladyhuman, Mum picked up my harness handle again and we walked on. The rest of the walk was great!

We met up again with Daddy and the car and set off on the long drive. First stop was a human yummyery where we found long-lost humanfriends; Mik and Sue, plus Clinton and Joanne, and another nice manhuman that we haven't met before (Joanne's Daddy apparently). I maaaayyyy have got a littlle bit dizzy-excited to meet and greet them all again! Oops! Under table, while they were all munching, I think I managed to lie on several sets of back paws and I did a good round of knee-wapping with my tail too! Heehee!

Next came a very nice time of freeerunning around a park near Rosie's house, followed by a bit of time in the house with Rosie and microhuman Hallie, plus her microfriend Bella and her humanmum Sian. I really am getting to quite like these microhumans now - they seem to rather enjoy feeding me with all sorts of yummies. It seems they were supposed to be eating those long crunchy things called cheese twists, but they both preferred to donate them to me! Yummmmmmm!

So that brings us to where we are now - and the nice comfy sofa! I am shattered just from recalling it all! Night night!
