Our week inside!

Well here we are a new week. Are we glad to be home with the pinkies! It all started last Sunday when we went for a lovely afternoon walk down some nice public footpaths and over stiles - in mycase lifted over! in Mindys' case charged underneath! (she's not normal). We thought it was a tad strange as usually we go early morning before people get up but this week it was different. Then when we got home it was all action - the blue ruck sack came out that is my kennel bag!

It was packed with my stuff and Mindy's I thought hmmmph it looks like we are both going away! and I thought she was going back to where she came from! ( I love her really!).

We set off and I knew straight away where we were going - Willowbottom Boarding Kennels. We leapt out of the car and dragged mum in! along with bags, biscuits, cages etc.,! Then as Mindy went through the door down the drive to the kennels I turned back to give mum a special kiss! Then I was o.k! not sure about mum though.

A week later- after trying to get into the office to fax my mate Noah to say all was well this end! they returned. That's after Mindy Moo Moo had chewed the plaster off the walls on all the corners in the kennel and run! Ooops - well the lady was told.

We heard the car pull up on the gravel at 3.15 on Monday and thought that sounds like the pinkies! We went totally barmy jumping, barking and biting eachother and mum and dad! Then we were bundled back in the car and head for home!

That's when the bad thing happened.........................THE BATH!!!!! oh dear - why do we always have to have a bath when we go away!

Although now we are clean and fluffy and look little bears! Mindy is so hairy now she's desperate for a hair cut! I grow at a slower rate - especially the beard!

We are just about caught up on our sleep now - although we are both going early tonight! Catch you soon folks!

Alf mate, so glad you're back. I can't believe they gave you a bath first thing when you got home...that's not on matie. A dale should have a bit of time to rest up before that kind of thing.
I was hoping you might pop on down to Oz while your pinkies were away. Thought we could've gone out for a couple of bowls of water and a bone, you know just us blokes. Mindy could have hung out with the gals. Maybe next time.
Catch you soon matie.

The gals say g'day

Geez, a bath as soon as you got home??!! Oh well, at least it's behind you! I can't wait to see pictures!

Love ya lots,

Alf said...

Hi Noah, it would be great wouldn't it to go out just us too. Maybe down to the village! I'm sure the girls would have plenty to talk about you know what women are like! Anyway I'm now on the big bed with mum and dad is snoozing on the sofa! I hope he stays here cus I;m comfy!!!!

So glad you're back home and blogging again. It's so hard to communicate with the outside world when at dog camp. You'd think they'd make it a little easier for everydog to get a good peemail or two in every day.

My hooman girl & I love the fluffy look. Bummer about the baths, though.

Hey, my little sissy is going to be here in 8 days and I need some quick advice. Come over if you want to see a photo of her. She's only 6 lbs so far, but I hear she's got loads of ATTITUDE! I need advice from one who knows! HELP!

Goober love,

Harry said...

Welcome home Alf & Mindy! I hope you're over the bath trauma. At least you had little sis for company I suppose, or would you have preferred some time out?!

Toodle pip,

Molly and Gertrude said...

Hey Alf! Good to see you are back, and Mindy too of course!
Gosh - Mindy really is like our Gertrude - what with her talent for 'interior design' - did she have to pay for the damage in bonios?

You and Noah could have a good night on the town - I wish I could come. Are girls allowed? (I am not a girly girl...)

Love Molly and Gertrude

Molly and Taffy said...

Great you are home now Alf.

This bath thing is a hooman fetish don't you think, they are obsessed with them.

We are impressed with Mindy's gnawing prowess. Was she trying to escape from the kennels or make her way to the next ensuite accomodation?

A bath as soon as you got home, did they think you smelt or something. Poor you. Well at least your back in the comfort of your home.Did you find out where they went?.

Sadie-n-Boatie said...

We know exactly what you mean about baths!! Our nasty hoomans gave us on this week, too.

Don't worry, you will soon find something delicously smelly to roll in and undo the effects of the b-word.

ruff ruff,
Sadie & Boatey
