Things have been crazy here for the last few days.

For one, Mummy and Daddy have been coming back home very, very late. And then, the rain is back with a vengeance! The days are getting shorter and darker, much more so because of the rains.

We were looking forward to a better kind of weekend, hoping for an improvement on these last few days, wishing hard for the rain to go away.

The sun did come out, but only as if to pacify us. It stayed for just over a couple of hours and hurried away to make way for the horrid rain.

But those couple of hours were enough inspiration for Mummy. She declared we were going to do some ‘Spring cleaning’.

We don’t know what Mummy was thinking, but we are ABSOLUTELY certain it isn’t spring now. It is Autumn.

Yeah, we know the weather outside looks like it is late winter. But we are pawsitive.


Anyway, spring or no spring, Mummy wasn’t joking about the cleaning part.

Well, about time too if you ask us. Another week of putting it off and we would have disappeared under layers of dust and we could have harvested mushrooms out of the refrigerator instead of buying them from the super-markets!

Alright, we ARE exaggerating now!! It wasn’t as bad as all that but you get our drift.

Well, Mummy zealously got down to this cleaning business. The ENTIRE house was in a mess the entire day!

Everything got dusted, scrubbed and washed.


Including US!!

She threw away sorted out loads of things too.

P1130330 (Oh My Dog! Buddy, come quick! I think Mummy has thrown away ALL our food!)


On top of losing ALL our food, there were hardships aplenty. Late breakfast, late walks, NO siesta and ABSOLUTELY NO play!

Of course, all our hopes of blog hopping were dashed!



Finally, very late in the evening, everything was done.

Mummy is very pleased with her handiwork, but we think she is most pleased about finding something really special she had thought was lost!

P1130333Ginger’s Baby Harness!



It doesn’t fit beyond my neck anymore! Tee Heee Heee..


Oh! Was I really that small? My harness now looks SO much larger!

Mummy says she will be better organised not let it get lost this time and preserve it for posterity!


And Thank Dogness, our food was miraculously back!



We know now what they mean when they say ‘We are Dog Tired!’

Our paws are aching and we can barely keep our eyes open.

It is time we call it a day…err…early night!


Now,Why do you have to ‘call it a day’ when it is night?

Oh! This is all so confusing! But we shall ponder over that later!

For now…Bonsoir…

It must be something in the air as I was seized with a frantic need to clean - or was it that I just couldn't ignore the mess any longer? Now, having tidied up (a little) I can't find anything . . .

Oh you poor things. You most certainly do look 'dog-tired'. Humans need to do that sort of thing once in a while. It kind of keeps them sane!!!!! You make sure you get plenty of beauty sleep to keep those gorgeous looks in tip top condition. Have a fun week! Ros and Oscar
