At the Football Field

It’s time for an another adventure Doc!



Quick before mummy notices we are up to something again.

Little T grabs her favourite red coat and wooly hat and off they go.

Woof!  Woof!  Woof!

Where are we going?

To the football field where we can ran around like loonies!

Woof! Woof!  Woof!

Sounds like fun!

Where are you going?

Woof!  Woof! Woof!

I’m heading for that net – would so love to have my teeth on that!

I don’t think that’s a very good idea Doc!

Woof! Woof!  Woof!

Hey!  Why did you tug me away?

The football players won’t like it if you bite a hole in their net.

Woof!  Woof?

Football players?

Woof!  Woof!  Woof! Woof!  Woof!

I don’t see them around, it’s just us here!

Yes, Doc.  But that doesn’t mean you can bite on their net!



Because I said so!

Woof!  Woof!  Woof!  

That’s not fair!

Well, you don’t always get what you want you know …

Little T sighs and says to herself “Now I know what mummy feels

C’mon, let’s just stick to the plan and run around like loonies!

An Afternoon at the Playground

C’mon Doc, let’s go to the playground!

Woof, woof, woof!

But your mum is still resting her foot!

She won’t find out! 

You know what she’s like when she’s in-front of her laptop.

Woof!  Woof!  Woof!

Yes!  She’s zoned-out.  Is your mum always weird like that?

Don’t be rude, Doc!  Don’t call my mum weird.

But yes, she gets like that when she’s blogging.



Never mind!  Quick!  Before she looks up!



Oh honestly Doc, can you slow down?  I’m not in yet!

Woof, woof, woof, woof!

Last one in is a rotten egg!

You’re a baddie Doc!

Woof, woof, woof, woof!

And you’re a slow-poke!


I’m hooking your leash by the fence!

Woof, woof, woof!

You’re  the baddie!

Watch me slide!  Now who are you calling a slow-poke?

Woof, woof, woof, woof!

Just wait till I get you!

Honestly Doc, let me up!

“Woof, woof!”

I’ve gotcha!

Let me go, Doc!

Woof, woof, woof, woof, woof!

Not till you let me off my leash!

I got away (sing-song voice)

Now I’m going to swing around in circles.  Watche me!

Woof! woof! woof!  woof!

If you get dizzy, I’m going to laugh!

Now you can watch me go see-saw…

Woof, woof, woof, woof!

I’m sulking now.  Let me off the leash!


Now watch me go round-and-road!




Go and sulk and watch me swing

Doc:  Grrr.

Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂

Doggie Heaven

We live in Doggie Heaven.  There is a headland nearby where dogs can go for long walks, jump around like loonies and try to chase rabbits.  St. Peter’s woods is also close, complete with a river where dogs can go for a swim, if not they could also get all wet, smelly and chase seagulls down in the harbour.

Our dog Mutly liked to chase them, the rabbits.  But he was never lucky and never got around to catching one.  As mentioned on this post, we used to laugh and say he was a big joke in Bunny land, where bunnies liked to gather around the fire and talk and make fun about what a slow-poke he was.  I bet he was a legend!

We used to have rescue dog named Lila.  She was a hunter.  She came bounding up to us one day with a poor rabbit in her mouth.  I was so shocked.  She turned out to be a disturbed dog, not because she liked to kill rabbits, but she just turned on us on a few occasions.  When it became too frightening, we decided to take her back.  I still feel guilty about that now, especially when I think about what they must have done to her.

And then there’s Doc, hope he grows up to be a lot like the Mutt, already he is looking a bit like him.  Since he was a rescued pup, they were never really sure what kind of breed he was.  They though that he was a collie x lurcher.  But seeing Doc now, my husband and I think Mutly was a Bedlington cross too.

Doc loves the headland. We don’t put him off the leash yet, the vet said only to do it when we’re confident that he’d answer to our call – hopefully that will happen soon.  I doubt if he’ll chase rabbits though.  I bet the bunnies will take one look at him and say “Oh no, not another Mutt!”  And they’ll go home and tell everyone that the Mutt has been reincarnated.  I wonder if rabbits believe in reincarnation? Do you?

Three is a crowd

Being the little pup that he is, Doc is very much curious and interested in Boots.  On the one hand, Boots doesn’t care about him AT ALL.  I bet if she had her way, she’d lure Doc out side, into the dark woods and hope that he won’t find his way home ever again, or she could just murder him like she does sometimes to poor little innocent birds and mice and give us a “Who me?  I didn’t-do-it-look”.

Whereas T, their little human is a happy bunny, ecstatic that she has a cat and now a dog whom she wavs very much indeed.  Life – for the little one is bliss.  Well, almost … now if only mummy and daddy would stop trying to convince her to go to play school … everything would just be perfect.

Hope everyone has a lovely week ahead of them!

Two of Us

Two of us riding nowhere
Spending someone’s
Hard earned pay
Two of us Sunday driving
Not arriving
On our way back home
We’re on our way home
We’re on our way home
We’re going home …

You and I have memories, longer than the road that stretches out ahead …

 -Two of us, Beatles

This is T’s and Doc’s first walk together.

It was only till the end of the road,

because he has yet to have his jabs

which is scheduled a few weeks from now.

T and Doc will grow up together.

Isn’ that the loveliest thought?

Hope everyone in the UK have not been affected much in last night’s storm.

As for the rest of you guys, have a great week ahead of you!

What’s up Doc?

For those who have been following my blog for some time now, you’ll know that ever since our Mutley passed away, we knew that it would take some time before we would even think of having a dog join our family again.  But since T turned three, we’ve decided that the time has come.  Now I’m happy to share that our little family is now complete.  It took awhile to find him, but the wait was well worth it.

Meet Doc.  He is T’s six-week old Bedlington Terrier x Springer Spaniel.  Everyone is delighted to have him, well,  except for maybe one little member of our family … Boots.

This is Boots perched on top of the stairs, if I could read her mind I bet it would be saying this:  You just wait till it’s just you and me little pup and you are D-E-D.  Hear that?  D-E-D.  DED.  If looks could kill, our little Doc would be dead by now.

Now if only T isn’t down with a temperature, a bad cold and cough, I’d call this day perfect.  But of course as you can see from Bootsy’s expression, it was more like The Day my Life was Ruined.

Have a great week!  Now excuse me while I edit my “About Me” page.
