Huge congratulations to everyone who entered our Yankee Candle cushion competition and to Suzanne our lucky winner. Another prize on the way very soon
I think I possibly have two of most mischievous (and utterly adorable) Cairn terriers in the world! I’ve never known a breed quite like it. They’re amazing!
However, our garden is a little hazardous right now because of holes… fourteen, to be precise, on the last count. There could be more!
Here’s just a small selection of some of the holes that grace our garden right now! To give you an idea of size and depth I’ve popped a tennis ball in the picture.
I have no idea what they’re digging for – treasure? oil? gold? Who knows! One of the holes is nearly a foot deep and about two feet long. I think it may be time to fill them in as I’ve fallen into them a few times now and my ankle didn’t like it! I daren’t jeopardise tennis.
But when I’m greeted by a beautiful expression like this or see them lazing in the garden I struggle to get annoyed. In fact I don’t get annoyed. It’s hilarious watching them dig and dig to then bury their nose in the hole to see if there’s anything there! They’ll then surface which is often followed by huge sneeze! Love my dogs!
I recently celebrated my birthday. My family utterly spoilt me and I received some lovely gifts. However my latest pride and joy has to be my new tennis racket (thank you!) which immediately caught the interest of Misty and Bramble. It was quickly retrieved and popped safely back in its case. Had I left it there, no doubt they would have dug a hole, buried it and nothing more than the handle would be sticking out of the ground!
There have been many, many escapades over the years with my two Cairns. Some of them very funny and some quite expensive. There was the time they got into my wallet and shredded a £20 note. Thankfully they’re better trained now and we haven’t had any incidents for a while tempting fate perhaps!
Where would we be without our adorable companions? I’d love to hear your pet mishaps and their mischievous endeavours. Do leave a comment below.
In the meantime, I’ll leave you with one of my favourite pictures. It takes us back to winter time when we had a light dusting of snow!
Take care and see you soon.
Ps. I’m on twitter, perhaps tweet me a picture of your pet! I’m @mecharliebrook
