Today the beach is not snowy - it's sunny with the waves all white and sea horsey with spray. I played digging down to Australia just to see how deep down it was, as you can see here - it is very very deep...

Woke up to a silent snow covered garden

This morning was a surpise - it had snowed overnight and was 3 inches deep in snow. I wasn't keen to go out in it, cos it meant getting snowballs on my fur. But needs must after a night sleeping on their bed between them, to keep warm. So I was brave and was given a wrap in a warm towel when I went back inside. I do know how to train humans obviously.

Bouncey border

Mr S likes to play with my toys and he really takes a lot of shouting at to make him realise that they are not really for him. As you can see here, he's a bit deaf!

Life on three legs

On Wednesday I went for my usual walk wiv Mr S through our local woods here and when the deer went by I couldn't resist following them. Well you never know what they'll get up to or go and it is my duty as responsible citizen of the dog kingdom to supervise them! Anyway Mr S didn't seem to think they needed monitoring so he called me back and of course I went (eventually - just needed to be sure that he meant it). By the time I got back to him it had happened and my front left paw was too painful to walk on and was bleeding all over the place! Mr S scooped me up and carried me straight home, where he bathed and dressed my poorly paw.
I think I took a bit of a shock from it all, cos I don't remember much of the rest of the day other than laying in my basket and Mr S changing the dressing a time or two. Mr S collected Joolsie from work early as a special treat for me and she gave me lots of loving cuddles when she got in.
I've not done much at all since then except lay in my basket, lay on the sofa, lay on Mr S or lay on Joolsie. I've spent a lot of time sleeping. I started to venture about the house on Friday night when Joolsie got home from work - I took a short dash to her on three legs and then stood by her till she picked me up for a cuddle - I think she was proud of me for trying.
Over the weekend my paw has got better in leaps and bounds and today I've got into trouble for trying to do leaps and bounds in equal measure! Joolsie has got to the point where she is making me wear my collar and lead to go out in the garden for a wee! Hopefully sometime in the next week I'll be allowed to go out for a walk, cos I'm getting very bored lounging around the house all the time!
