Twice in one day we are getting good. More like there's nothing going on at Pinkies work so she's doing it from there!
Anyway, as I was previously saying we went to Cornwall and met up with Bob. Two weeks before our very own Pinky had been in hospital to have an operation on her right wrist. She had been having pain in it for about 4 years and it had got too much so an operation was needed. It turns out that she has 'Synovial Chondromatosis' which apparently is a condition that men get in their knees wait for it..........in their 40's. It might have escaped the surgeons attention but my mum is a lady and she's not yet 40!!! Well not far to go but still not quite 40!
She is a mystery - which we all knew anyway. She was off work for 3 weeks and stayed with us and then she went back to work - Daddy Pinky had to driver her to work and then the plaster came off after 5 weeks - her arm was horrible, we thought ET had moved in.
So when we went to Cornwall we didn't do much because of Pinkies plaster!! We did however have a good time and because the weather was soo good we stayed on for an extra couple of nights!
The pictures in the slidey thing are me trying to get the stick off Bob - I did it in the end but they made me give it back!
Catch you all soon for more installments!

We went over and sat and waited for the boat and eventually it came and we all boarded, luckily we got the pointed end all to ourselves so that we could stand up and look out to see with the wind in our beards! Well Pinky doesn't have one but she stood up with me and felt the wind in her hair!
When we eventually arrived in Truro - it takes an hour by boat we had a long walk ahead of us. There is actually a cycle track that you can take and it is a shortcut but we couldn't find it!! So we had to walk up a great big hill in the blistering heat along side a dual carriage way! Anyway we got to the top and started walking down the hill and towards a village called Calenick. We walked for an and a half until we got a phone call from Dad to say he was on his way down the hill and where were we! We could see him but we were stuck on a cycle track up a hill - we could see the road but he couldn't see us! He had to park at the other end and wait for us to catch up! Anyway Alf was very very pleased to see us and so we hitched a ride and went to the pub!!
All in all I had a great day out with mum and hope we can do it again soon!
I'll leave you with some pictures of my aboard the Enterprise II Boat!Love Mindy xx

Well it's about time we caught up with some blogs and also updated ours. I don't know how these pinkies go from day to day without some form of blogging but it seems they do! Oh well I think I may try and get some typing lessons and then maybe I could update on my own!
Well last month we all went to Cornwall for a very long weekend - 5 days infact so almost a week! It was great we had some rain the first day and then after that it was brilliant sunshine and hot hot hot! Although it did get a little much for me and I had to call ring and ride to come and rescue me........more about that with some pictures shortly!
We stayed in our caravan in Cornwall and travelled to Fowey, St. Austell and did the usual pubs that we visit while down there! http://pandorainn.com, The Heron Inn, Malpas near Truro (brilliant food) but dogs have to stay outside. http://punchbowlandladle.co.uk to name a few. Now don't think that my parents have a drinking problem, I don't think they do but then again we don't have anyone to compare them with! Although they do eat at the pubs too!
On the Saturday we visited Fowey, it was breezy and a little cool but it soon warmed up and boy did it get hot. I'm not over keen on walking on a lead I prefer to be loose and sniffing around at my own pace which is about as fast as a snail! (According to the pinkies!!!).
It got so hot that Dad and Mindy had to go and fetch the Muppet Mobile so that I wouldn't pass out, it was about 27 degrees and far too hot for me! I was so hot and tired that I fell asleep with my beard and my head in my water dish while going along - I woke up when the flash on the camera made me jump! I wasn't impressed to say the least!
I'll leave you with a couple of pictures and will be back shortly after my dinner!

I can't believe how long it has been sincy Pinky updated our blog. We are always nagging at her to get it done, and there is always something more important. Nevermind she's doing it now - we are sat with her barktating to her - she doesn't quite understand what we are on about but we can put her right as we go along.
Well the building work is coming along nicely - we shall attach some piccies later when we get back from work! Alf has been supervising and even kept the carpenter up the scaffold because he was too scared to get down as Alf was at the bottom of the ladders!! It was so funny - he had to wait until Pinky had stopped mowing the lawns so that she could hear him shouting for help! It was really, really great!! - by Mindy
Well for the last week Mindy has been let off her lead on our morning walks - and she has done fantastically well! She chases after her ball and comes back everytime she is called! Although luckily no-one goes up the public footpath at 6.30am in the morning - maybe if she saw someone else it would be a different story - but she's fine at the moment! There are a few gaps in the hedges that she sticks her head through but comes back when she's told! I on the other hand - ignore her and walk along sniffing and watering the flowers! - by Alf
We are off down to Cornwall soon for a long weekend - I'm hoping to get a week in down there but we'll see!
Catch you all soon - and promise it won't be so long next time.
Licks and sniffs

Hi Alf here. I must write and tell you about Mindy going missing last night in the howling wind and pouring rain!
We were let out at about 9.00pm and pinky didn't realise it was raining so off we go - she then starts watching TV and suddenly said at 9.20 - oops I forgot the muppets are outside!
So in I came (like a good boy) called for Mindy - nowhere to be seen or heard! Well they wouldn't see would they - we live in the middle of nowhere and it was dark - the lights were on but they're not that bright! (Neither is Mindy!).
So we called, whistled, shook the biscuit tin, clanged the dish with a fork and shouted "MUPPET MEAT". No Mindy. Pinky went into a panic and started charging round the field looking for signs of a missing dog! Daddy pinky who has far more intelligence had a look in the muppet pen - and there she was - she had gone in and the wind had blew the gate shut! She was stood behind it wagging her tail! Needless to say - we were all happy and could go back in the warm!
Mummy Pinky still can't understand why she didn't bark! Maybe she was enjoying watching them rush around!
Anyway - she's having a bit of an Airedo again this afternoon - 1/2 an hour a day - her fur grows that quick - she looks like a woolly mammoth most of the time!

Alf here - long time again and no writing! I've been so busy and Pinky has been to busy to do my audio typing for me. I record it all and she types it up - unfortunately this is a busy time for her at work - but it's underway now! You'll just have to bear with me until she can put the pics on!
Well the building is coming along - as you may know we had to wait for some sunlounge steel beams to be delivered as there is alot of glass in the building we have to have steel beams installed so that they support the weight of the tiles on the roof! I stayed out of the way to be honest when the beams were put in - as I didn't want to get squashed - the pinkies did 2 of them and then the builder helped with the biggest and heaviest one on Saturday last week - Mummy Pinky supervised!
We now have to get the scaffolders in so that we can carry on with the brickwork on the upstairs part of it! It's all action here - we were called off the job last week though as the winds here were so bad - I almost got blew over.
Mindy doesn't supervise the building work - she spends time poking around in Al's van looking for food! (Typical girl!).
Yesterday we had some friends come up from Gloucester for the day - Wendy - went to school with my Pinky since they were 3 - so you can imagine how long they've been friends for!!! I did my usual stare out job at them but they weren't scared - so I gave up in the end. Mindy was embarassing as usual and wouldn't leave the alone and kept going back to them for fuss! We all went for a lovely walk in the afternoon after dinner - as the rain had stopped and the sun came out. We walked down some lovely public footpaths across fields - then we came across a stile - not a problem to some dogs - but I don't do agility and to make matters worse - it was under water too! I had to get underneath a rail and got soaked - it took me ages and there was mention of us all having to turn round and go back the way we had come! No way were they going to blame for that! So I went through - and guess what was round the next corner! Yes you've guessed it another 2! I eventually got through - Mindy just cleared them with pinky on the end of the lead! The last one was awful it was flooded and everyone had wellies on but me - so they walked right through - I walked around the edge and got brambles in my face - but that's better than getting my feet wet! Mindy was filthy it came to the top of her front legs - but she wasn't bothered. It was a shame the camera had been left behind though!
Anyway - that's it from me for now - I'll leave you with some pictures!

Well hello again!
It's been pretty wet by us just lately so not much has been going on, apart from having feet wiped every time we venture outside and back in again!
We have started to have an extension to our house so there is mud a plenty that keeps Mindy amused for hours! We had the foundations dug out last Sunday - and we had to get them covered over with wood to stop us from falling down the holes - it is so hard now to get in the house, before we had 2 steps now we have to jump!!! Mindy was caught doing her own excavation - she was going like the clappers! What gave it away though was her grunting whilst digging! If only the camera had of been to paw!
I'm supervising the build as I did before when we built the garage, just so that the builders know who's in charge! Although Mindy was found in the back of the builders van helping herself to his lunch box! No manners that one!
I'll get pinky to download some photos later - and will get them on here as soon as I pawsibly can!

Mindy - I would be a Leopard - fast and no-one has spots on me!
2. Rocket Man by Elton John - because our Daddy sings it to me but changes the words to "Muppet Man" (my nickname) . Mindy would have Muppett Woman - As Wonder Woman with different words!
3. If I could live anywhere in the world - it would be where my mum lives - If she's happy then Im happy! Mindy - I would live at the "Bonio" Factory where I would be happy for the rest of my life!
4. If I were a famous movie Star I would be James Bond - Shaken not stirred - the ladies love me! Mindy - I would be Doris Day - good looking, and with a wonderful voice!
5. I should be the spokesman for "Spam" meat company - well we both would - in our house it is called Muppett Meat - we don't eat the cheap stuff we only like the decent stuff. The Pinkies are banned from eating it though. It's for us only!

Well we haven't written for a while, as we went down to Cornwall on Boxing Day. We had a great time. The weather was pretty mild between 10 and 12 degrees most days. I (Mindy) went in the Helford River - which connects to the sea - and guess what it was cold - Pinky thought it was even colder because she came in too - only to her ankles though - I went in to the top of my legs!
We went on some lovely walks and had some nice pinky food too! I was a good girl all week and excelled myself so much that when we got home mum said that I didn't have to sleep in my crate at night anymore - however - after I came in from the toilet before bedtime I sat at the door of it crying to go in! So I'm still in it! I don't mind though it gives me some peace and quiet! I slept well whilst at the caravan because I had my own little bed there - I wouldn't let Alf get on it, it was epecially for me. I did sleep on the big bed once, but the pinkies make me too hot if I'm honest!
So I will leave you with some pictures of Christmas etc, and Happy New Year all our fellow bloggers!
Mindy x and Alf x
