We were out for such a long time this morning – breakfast in our favourite café (bits of sausage for me) then food shopping (tuna and sardines, hope I get a sample) for Marley. When I got a whiff that we were homeward bound I decided to take the lead. I’m very good at this and know the way. We were back in no time at all.
Starting to sit more in the summerhouse but it was a brief sojourn today. A bit chilly, even in there. My mum could have closed the door but Marley was firmly on her knee and she doesn’t like to move him. That’s fine until she her knee seizes up and she can’t feel her toes! Cleo stayed outside, miaowing loudly. But when does she ever do anything else? Haven’t a clue what she wants most of the time.
I make my needs very clear – a helpless look means ‘feed me’, spinning around trying to catch my tails says it’s time for a run, retreating to the tiled hallway indicates I’m hot and my head on my mum’s knee tells her I want cuddles. Couldn’t be plainer – and she calls me thick!
Now that we have a dog friendly pub around the corner I get taken much more often. It’s such a treat; treat, you understand, as in lots of fuss and a bag of crisps. And this pub stocks Salty Dog crisps! Made for me!
Here I am, last night, sitting patiently, paw at ready. My mum makes me give a paw at so that I fully appreciate the special nature of getting crisps. Too many aren’t good for a doggy diet, even if they are named after me.
I got lots of cuddles and compliments from other customers. One encouraged me to say hello to her bearded collie and shared a dog biscuit with me.
See why I love the pub?

Heavy rain outside so my mum doesn’t want to take me for a walk. So why did you wake me???
My mum has been away for a few days so I’ve been at bootcamp. Let me tell you, I’m glad to get home to my mum for a rest!
You have no idea what it’s like: up before dawn, walking my paws off, played with by the sprog, teased by the youngest cat and taken to WORK. WORK! I never have a moment’s peace.
To show my appreciation I walked very nicely for my mum, didn’t pull on the lead when we went to the shops and today I was rewarded by being taken to a new cafe, Kith & Kin. Think this will become another of our favourites because they’re dog friendly (gave me water in a big bone-shaped dish) and do avocado on sourdough toast. My mum loves avocado on toast for breakfast
I don’t. I’m a dog and dogs don’t eat vegetables.
