Wendover Woods...oh and Bailey is back!!

Well, Baileys back and come to stay again! Mum and Dad are dog sitting him for the next 2 weeks and I have to say I am really excited. I should add that both myself and Bailey are really excited and have driven mum and dad mad just charging round the house like a pair of loonies.

Don't we look sweet? Mum, dad and the son took us for a day out to Wendover woods. What a fantastic place!!! Mum has been talking about going here for months and they decided it was time to get there and find out what it was all about. It is the loveliest place and best of all there are great trails to follow and even better is the cafe there. Here you can see Bailey and me having a well deserved rest after walking for what seemed like days....I'm sure it was only really a couple of hours though.

We discovered a great place to sit and watch the other dogs go by too but sadly mum nearly died from fright when I decided to try and jump out of the tiny window so she wouldn't let me stay on the ledge. Bailey sat nicely though and had a good look out. This photo was taken before I attempted my circus trick from the lookout! I have to admit it was rather high once I had a proper look....actually it was a sheer drop of about 10 zillion feet so good job mum stopped me! I don't understand that as we went in from the entrance and that was on the level and not high at all!

We had a nice sit down and looked at the view. You can see all over the the world from up there and I think we saw Marvin up in Scotland from there. Did you see us waving Marvin??

Here we are having a well deserved rest and biscuit or two half way round one of the trails. We really wanted to get home and sleep but the hooomans just wanted to keep on walking....

Ship ahoy!

As it's the school holidays and the son is home mum thought it would be a great idea to go out for a picnic somewhere nice. Mum and dad seem to spend hours saying "now where shall we go today?" or "where would you like to go?" and never seem to make their minds up! For a nice change mum suggested going to Hurley Lock down on the River Thames. Mum used to go there many years ago for family days out with her mum and dad and other family members and knew how nice it was there. So we set off nice and early.....

When we first arrived I checked out the trees and had a good old sniff to make sure the area was suitable for us all. When I was satisfied I sat down and watched for a while.....

Then did a bit more watching.......

Then when I thought the area was safe I went to the shade of course as it was far too hot! Mum loved it and sprawled herself out in the sun with a book. Honestly, she looked like a beached whale but don't tell her I said so. I hope she didn't scare the ducks!
I felt really sad for Simba at his new house and I know that he likes boats so thought he might like to see the boats too. Simba these "boat" photos are from me to you and I hope you cheer up a little bit. I did look out for him sailing would have been nice to have met him!

1, 2, labradoodle

As you know mum and dad met up with Jack the labradoodle while they were up in the Lake District at the weekend. Well, guess what! We have met another one!!! They are like London buses and come along together don't they!

First we saw Jack.....

and now meet Doodle the labradoodle....

How cute are labradoodles? Mum has now gone all soppy and really wants one...
Here are some pics of Doodle, Maysie and me playing!

We didn't half have some fun! Maysie is bonkers anyway and Doodle is just such bouncey fun too!

Lake Windermere excitement

Now my mum, dad and the son have been away for a few days....did they take me I can hear you ask. Well no, actually they didn't take me but instead I was left at Jennies with lots of other lovely doggies to play with. I love Jennie as she lets us roam round her house just like it was ours. You can sleep on the sofas, sleep on the beds, in fact, do what you like. Now isn't that a lady who knows how to treat a dog!

The family went off to the Lake District to meet up with lots of friends for a special weekend. These friends come from all over the place and they all met at Fell Foot park that is on Lake Windermere for a picnic. One of mums friends lives by the Lake and went home to get his canoe and the son was desperate for a go...... Guess who fell in? Yep the silly son! Mum nearly stopped breathing on the spot as he couldn't get back on the canoe. The currents on the Lake are very strong and he was getting dragged further away from the shore. Some very horrible people went past on their boats and never even asked if the son needed any help. My mum called them a few names I think. Anyway, some very kind teenagers towed the son to shore. The son was very tired and tearful when he got a big hug from mum though!

I heard my mum telling her friend on the phone that while they were at the Lake they met a dog who was just wonderful. He was a labradoodle called Jack. Here he is looking very handsome and playful....why wasn't I there to play with him!

Mum has promised that the next time they go to the Lakes they will take me with them. I hope they do as I really like to swim in those lakes and chase the ducks and birds. I like Ambleside as they sell great ice cream on the edge of the Lake there!

Very sad news.....

I have been very bad of late updating my blog....I shall blame mum as she is such a busy bunny again that she just don't have to the time to sit and help me type my stories.

Mum finally managed to find the time late on Sunday to come on here only to find some very sad news. My lovely friend Oscar had to go to the rainbow bridge. I am so sad.....what a wonderful doggie and friend to me.

Bless you Oscar, I shall miss you!
