Paying attention

The weather here was sunny but a bit chilly today.

This picture is Auntie Breeze, Chip and me all paying attention in the garden (Actually we were having a tennis ball waved at us to get our attention, but it did the trick...)

Chip the Patterdale Terrier





This post is about Chip who is a Patterdale Terrier and lives with us.

Chip was found abandoned in a field when just a little puppy and only a few days old. He is now about 17 months.

He is a very small dog, as you can see from these pictures of him training at flyball.

Despite Chips very small size he is somehow able to do single stride jumps when racing at flyball which shouldn't really be possible when you see how tiny he is.

When Chip starts to compete at flyball, when he is old enough to do real competitions, he will be a height dog because of his small height.

Chip is always very happy and wags his tail all the time. He is very friendly to all other dogs and people.

Chip is a real 'happy go lucky' dog.

The only time he ever moans at me is when I go to 'try' and take a bone or chewie off him!

Dinner time


We all went flyball training today and I watched again. Afterwards I got quite hungry from all the barking.

This is me eating my dinner when we got back home.

I eat fast so I can get to the others before they finish theirs. My mum says I will get indigestion. Is this a different type of dog food that the others get?

Tired again


The weather was bad today as expected. sunny one minute then raining heavily the next.

Had a nice walk on the path on lead and tried to be good, most of the time. This is a picture of me and Chip having a small nap afterwards.

My 'can I have' look


This is a picture of me practicing my 'can I have' look.

I think I will try this look when I want to go out for a walk or have a nice extra treat.

The weather was not as nice today we had a bit of rain, according to the forecast it is going to be heavy rain tomorrow. I hope I still get a nice walk , I will have to practice this look some more.

A sunny Spring walk


We all went out again today for another nice walk in the Park and it was a lovely Spring sunny day. The first picture is me and Auntie Breeze.

The second picture is all of us. Dare has the tennis ball which is unusual as Auntie Breeze normally has it. She is quite an expert at getting it before anyone else when its thrown.

Flyball in Maidstone


We went to a flyball tournament again today in Maidstone, Kent.

I watched the racing and I had a good bark with all the other dogs it was lovely and noisy as the tournament was held inside a big hall.

These are a couple of pictures of me outside socialising, the other dog is Archie who is a week younger than me. I also met some Australian Kelpie puppies and lots of other dogs .

Chip & flyball



There was a flyball demonstration today at a nearby school and Chip took part in it. It was the first time he has done this and apparently he did very well.

The first picture is Chip waiting to do his flyball races and the second is him exhausted in the car afterwards.

Bit of a cheek


I think its a bit of a cheek, Auntie Breeze, Dare and Chip went to Agility tonight and I stayed at home with Mum. OK I went to obedience classes with Auntie Breeze last night but I think I should have gone along tonight as well !

Tired out

I have been busy again so far this week, lots of walks and investigating in the garden.

Just got back from a big walk in the Park with the others and I am quite tired out from all the running about, as you can see.

Sunny Sunday





It was a very warm sunny spring day here today in west London.

So when it got a little bit cooler in the afternoon me, Auntie Breeze, Dare and Chip all went over to a country park that I have not been to before to have a run about chasing a tennis ball and checking out all the interesting new things.


There were a few other dogs and lots of people out for a walk in the sun as well but it was such a big country park we didn't really bump into them.

Flyball training




We all went to Flyball training again today ( I just watch ) at FourPaws Flyball Club.

So I was able to have lots of runs with the other dogs and puppies in between the racing and also after training when everyone was putting away the flyball equipment.



Also I got loads of treats given to me as well (when I behaved myself).

Wet Wednesday



Actually these pictures were taken on Monday in Bushey Park but I thought that wet Wednesday sounds quite good for a title !

I had just had my unexpected little dip in the water and was running about and trying to dry off as it was a bit chilly.




Interesting how these camera things work ...

Its been another busy week. We just got back from tonight's obedience training lesson.

Royal Park



Today we all had a trip out today to a Royal Park, Bushey Park in London. There was loads of new things in the Park including deer. Fortunately we didn't bump into any as they sound a bit scary.

The first picture is us all having a run around in the park.

The second is me, Chip and Dare waiting for a tennis ball to be thrown and you can just make out Auntie Breeze waiting in the distance.

The third is me a bit wet after a little paddle in the water, Chip and Dare enjoy water as well. But Auntie Breeze does not seem that keen.



This is a video of us all, it was very windy today which you can also hear a bit on the clip.

In the Park



These are some pictures of me in the park with Dare, Chip and Auntie Breeze.

The first one is me with Dare and Chip (Chip is the little one barking)

The second one is me barking at Auntie Breeze who is waiting for a ball to be thrown. She really concentrates when she is out playing so I am only able to do this then, as she would normally tell me off.

And the last one is me and Chip checking out an interesting bit of wood.

Town Centre

I went for a long walk today around the town shopping centre. Met loads of different people and some other dogs. Lots of people said hello and stroked me.

This picture is me in front of a letter box and that's where people post letters. Then when they arrive at our house I can bark at the post man.

It didn't seem that far away so I am not sure why they don't bring the letters around themselves.

Busy week


I have had another busy week this week. Out and about, bath, a party last night so I am feeling a bit tired today.

No flyball training tomorrow as people are going to Crufts. Hopefully we will go somewhere else nice instead.

Bath


Had a bath today, my first one ever. I behaved myself apart from trying to eat the shower head.

This is a picture of my nice clean shiny coat.

Down the shops




Had a nice walk down the shops today, apparently this is to help give me road sense.

But when I got back I discovered everyone else had gone down the park for a run without me which is a bit out of order.

Anyway I can't imagine why they think I need better road sense.
