She is back – Smudge:

Being dried off

At long last mistress is back at our cottages (click here). Master is OK but he is a bit hit and miss with feeding us. I can go for hours without a single treat and dinner time seems to have been completely random. At least with mistress I know I will get fed, even if it is small portions, it is usually bigger than masters portions and she always adds a little extra for us. Master doesn’t. It’s just our basic food and “Smudge there you go”. What about my little extras?

Due to the snow mistress was away even longer than expected so my waistline is even worse than I had anticipated. We haven’t had our early morning walks, no breakfast, no cuddles, very little fuss, no log fire to sleep by and certainly LESS FOOD. We have been neglected!

To be fair to master he has been a bit busy over the last few days with all the snow we have had. It has been a bit of a pain. I was even getting a bit worried that we might get snowed in. I wasn’t sure how much food we had left. What would have happened if we had run out (sorry I digress). The problem with the snow was that in a lot of places it was so high it made it a bit difficult for us dogs to get about. Of course idiot brother enjoyed it as master was here and there in the 4×4 and shovelling snow (which for some strange reason idiot brother likes to catch – nutter). In places we have had some serious drifting. At least we had a few friends to play with but it was a bit cold to play outside. I did complain a few times when we got the “Ok guys out you go”. “Why! its warm in here.” “Do we have to?” At least the snow is very slowly going and it easier for people in the cottages to get in and out. We have also learnt where we can easily go without disappearing into a snow drift.
