We got loads of presents yesterday mostly of the food variety like those pies underneath the Christmas tree (very tasty).

But one of the presents, not for us, was this very familiar looking fluffy doorstop.

I think its meant to look like someone. And this is that someone having a bit of an inspection.

I think I might prefer the quiet one if we are only keeping one terrier...

What do you think?

Merry Christmas

Its Christmas day and we are all waiting to eat these pies while we have our festive picture taken.

A very Merry Christmas to everyone.

The night before Christmas

What better way to post pictures on the night before Christmas but with ones with some little babies.

These are Auntie Breezes new nephews and nieces who are growing up fast and soon will be getting into all sorts of trouble.

And this is me two years ago when I was just a little puppy.

Christmas spirit

We just received some pictures of my sister Abbie getting into the Christmas spirit.

That's a lovely hat and scarf that Abbie is wearing. I wonder if I might get the same for my Christmas present.

I cannot imagine why I think that she is looking forward to all that Turkey for Christmas lunch.

Playing in the Snow

The snow hasn't melted yet here in London so we got a chance to have a bit of a dash about in it today.

These are a couple of YouTube videos of us in the park . First one is me and Dare. As you can see I am not that keen to leave the tennis ball !

And this is Chip and Breeze today as well. As you can see Chip has only one thing on his mind and that is running and running.

and more running...

Lots and lots of Snow

We woke up to with lovely view in the garden today as there was a heavy snow fall overnight here in London.

This is very unusual in West London as we tend to miss the worst of the winter weather.

Its a festive sight with Christmas getting so close.

Its odd running about in such deep snow but I can see someone really enjoys running about in it.

No its not Dare but he is watching him dash about as well.

You have probably already guessed who really loves the snow.

Chip... who else.

Auntie Breeze is an Auntie

Some lovely news Auntie Breeze is finally a real Auntie.

Breeze is a very small Border Collie who lives with us. She is the oldest of our little pack and will be the grand old age of 5 next year, so has been given the title of Auntie as she is a bit like a Maiden Aunt to the rest of the pack.

Breeze however is a very posh pedigree Border Collie and also has a very posh name, Foxbarton Pop my Cork. Its her sister Fizz (Foxbarton Lady Chandon) who has just had the puppies.

This is Fizz and her 9 little pups. Fizz does not live with us but is not very far away in Epsom, Surrey.

Those pups look very little !

Some real Snow

Finally we had a reasonable snowfall last night so I have had a chance to run around in it out in the park.

Its great fun trying to find the tennis ball in all that snow when it gets all covered up.

But its a bit cold when you do. So you have to drop it again quick.

Hang on who is that lurking in the background?

Look its an Arctic Chip.

Well some finally arrived this morning but only a dusting so its a bit of a disappointment so far. Plus its almost all gone away again.

Lots of other places in England have already had loads and loads of snow. The boss says but at least its still easy to get around still.

Funny feeling

Its been snowing in England this weekend but hasn't reached us yet. The weather forecast said it might have got to us by today but nothing so far.

Flyball training was called off today because the ground was frozen hard. So we made do with a run in the park instead.

Do you get that feeling sometimes that you are being watched...

The Ashes

For those Americans who read this blog you may never have heard of the Ashes. Its a cricket series played between England and Australia and the first one started way back in 1882. It happening at the moment in Australia and hopefully England will win the series.

Basically when the Australians won for the first time way back then the newspapers said it was the death of English Cricket, hence the ashes.

On a slightly different note its a bit chillier here than over in sunny Australia at the moment. We might be even getting some snow soon and as you can see the leaves are falling still.

Well you get the idea!

Great racing today

We were at Maidstone in Kent today for our last flyball tournament of the year. I was racing with my team mates in Division 4 our team is called Lightning Bolt.

This is a YouTube video of a couple of the races today.

It starts with me bouncing up and down with excitement before the race. My team is the one nearest to you in the first race and then furthest away in the second race. I am the last dog running in my team.

In case you are wondering we did win both of those races on the video!

Flyball training went very well on Sunday and I have had no ill effects. This was the first time back since the vet episode.

These are a couple of pictures of me at training, from one side.

And one from my other side.

And also one of Auntie Breeze, she has been doing flyball for a while and has got her Flyball Dog Advanced title.

She is very determined. Nothing ever puts her off not even other teams dogs running across during a race!

Paws high

I had a nice run in the park today. It was a bit of a warm up for tomorrows flyball training.

The boss does not always notice that I am waiting for the ball.

Look come on this is what I am waiting for.

But it was not all just standing about today.

Since my little trip to the vets last week I have been very hungry all the time.

When people eat sweets I would love to join in. But unfortunately I never seem to be given any.

I wonder who that sweet is for it looks very tasty.

It better not be for him...

The tests are clear

The vet phoned to say the blood sample they sent off did not show anything. So its a bit of a mystery what was wrong with me last week other than it was some sort of gastroenteritis problem.

So we went out today to the Park. Its the first good run I have since my stay in the vets.

It was quite chilly today very autumnal weather.

But we all enjoyed it.

Two today

Well I am two years old today. Its not been the sort of Birthday week I had planned !

I got a very nice Birthday card from everyone.

And some presents. My favorite one was this rubbery ball.

You can also play catch or even tuggy with it.

At least you can until Chip joins in as well ...

Tuesday, 2 November 2010


Many thanks for all get well wishes.

You will be pleased to hear that I seem to be on the mend at the moment from the weekends episode, but its early days. I am taking all the tablets without spitting them out which is (apparently) good of me.

I am not allowed to go out yet and the food I have to eat at the moment is special horrible vet stuff to help my tummy recover.

In fact I will not be able to go out for a week or so just to make sure I am OK. And I will miss out on some training.

Oh dear here comes some more of those tablets and they are bigger than I remembered ...
