Lots of friends to stay- Smudge

Smudge Checking his dinner

Whats for Dinner?

Its getting busier at our (click here). Master has at long last finished the carpeting in the cottages (so he is less grumpy) and we now have people arriving. This weekend we had loads of friends staying so we spent quite a while showing them where the best smells were and were to hide if you don’t want to go back inside. But generally we just played around with them in the fields or paddock. The other advantage of more people being around is that I am more likely to get fed. In fact all in all its not been a bad week for tit-bits. One of the workmen always gave me a few bits from his lunch, one of our regular guests was always good for a dog treat and a few of the others could be cajoled into giving me a few bits if I put on my ‘I am Cute and starving’ look.

Inspecting the workmanship

We had another visit to the vets. Our second booster or something like that. I really don’t understand what the fuss is all about. Most dogs we talk to don’t like the vets at all. I don’t mind. We get a load of fuss and some treats.  I don’t like the getting there bit as it means going in the CAR. But once we are there its fine. They weren’t quite as generous this time as last time. I didn’t get any treats to take home with me.  They still seem to think I am the correct weight which is absolute nonsense. You only have to look at me to realise I am bordering on starving and very malnourished – therefore I need feeding up.

Its been a hard day.

At long last I have my job back – ‘Fire Supervisor’.  We haven’t had a fire for weeks as mistress will only put it on if its cold outside but this Sunday she put it on again.  I lay there all Sunday, keeping a very careful eye on it.  Master did try and send us outside in the afternoon but I was having none of that. I need to keep a constant check on the fire (besides it was raining and cold outside).
