Oh sorry, you don't understand 'pogspeak' do you? Better use this translation then. OK what I said was 'Hi everyone, it's Gracie here'.
If you didn't know already, Debbie's away for a few days on her 'staycation' with daddy Nigel – he's been here with her and they've been going out for trips and lunches and things. It's been nice to have two people taking us on long walks 'cos it means Debbie doesn't get tangled up in the leads so much as she walks us through the stiles!
Anyway, it's time for me to fill-in and write this week's blog – hehe!
As you know, I recently went walkabout again with my naughty sister Daisy – here we are with Patch, in the sunny lane near where we live (pic above left) – wasn't that hot weather… erm… hot?! Not good for us dogs in our coats, as you can imagine! Fortunately there are two hard plastic paddling pools in our little doggy pen which makes it easier to cool down – and lots of shade of course! You can see Holly playing around in the pool in a recent blog.
Ahh the pen. As you know, Daisy thinks it's her job to find holes in the bushes – the one side of the pen that's not five feet high. Debbie tries to keep blocking them up. Well when we escaped a week or so ago, I followed Daisy down the lane and ended up in the ornamental pond out the back of some massive posh house. I thought it was a very good idea to have a little paddle, even though it was 10pm.
However, a nice lady called Agnes came and found me, and didn't realise my name tag was a temporary one and had a different number on it, so when she tried to call no-one replied till the next day. So I got dried on fluffy towels, and slept in a hotel room overnight, then got fed a nice can of dog food the next morning!
It wasn't till we went to the local vets at midday that Debbie got told about my safe return – I must say I did like the can of dog food though. If I get the chance I might go off wandering to see if I can find Agnes again…
The next day I was due to go to the vets to have my 'bits done'. Not sure what Debbie meant exactly but the next thing I knew I'm fitted with a big lampshade on my head and have an aching belly. Not that I can see anything past the lampshade! It took a week of lying down and not moving around much and I was nearly ready to go back in the pen with my family. I must admit I missed Daisy a lot – we do play awfully well together. It was nice to get back with her.
I must say I do like living where we are – there’s always something going on and of course Daisy, Holly and Patch to play with!
Anyway I hope you had a good week, and if you have a pet perhaps they'd like to leave me a message below – Debbie knows you mention them sometimes – what's their message for me?
P.S. Debbie had a little giggle last week during the Fashion Sale – here's a look…
