The Snow has nearly gone – Smudge

At long last the snow seems to be going from our Bolehill Cottage fields or at least we can see bits of green again. The great thing about the snow is that we don’t get our feet dirty when we go out, so we don’t get the ‘Smudge Stay’ and then the dreaded towel when we come in. The worst case is if we get master cleaning our paws. That is terrible as he is very rough and what is worse he sometimes forgets to give us our ‘Paw wipe treat’. The ‘Paw wipe treat’ is the only reason we don’t go rushing off into the lounge. If we don’t get a treat I don’t see why I can’t just wander into the Lounge and dry off by the fire. Hasn’t he read how to train a dog – constantly feed them.

Not the paws again

Anyhow the snow was fun at times. Of course idiot brother kept trying to help master clear the drive which is always amusing as master gets angrier and angrier with him till in the end he is shouting at him. Does no good as the idiot still gets in the way. Far better to sit and watch.

We have had a few nice walks with mistress in the afternoon sun walking around our grounds. I enjoy our walks with mistress. She always carries a bag of treats (unlike master) and she doesn’t yell at us. So we can have a nice peaceful walk and exploring session. Of course idiot brother has to go and dig up mole hills which mistress isn’t too keen on but apart from that it can be fun. I am still not too sure why we have to go out just before sunset and then sit around for 10-15 minutes but mistress seems to enjoy watching sunsets from our back fields.

Master has been insufferable again. Thank goodness he has now finished the work in Derwent Cottage . He is always grumpy and on edge when he is working against the clock to complete some work in a cottage and of course we usually get it in the neck. I just dread the days mistress leaves him to feed us. There is a 50/50 that he will forget as he is so preoccupied with things. Idiot brother doesn’t seem to care but I DO. I NEED MY FOOD. Anyhow things seem to be back to normal for the time being (until the next cottage!!!).
