It wasn’t my fault

It certainly could’t have been. After all the workers took a long long time and then Mummy took some more to clean up after them.

Oh Alrighty! Let me tell this better.

We had to stay in the bedroom the whole time the workers fixed the shade over our balcony the other day. Something to do with them coming and going carrying heavy stuff and the weilding work being too dangerous for us to snoopervise. We did get to snack on our favorite stuff from time to time but no dog likes to be scooped up inside while there is so much going on outside, snacks or no snacks.

So after much deliberation I decided to amuse myself with some chewing exercise. Apparently my new stuffy wasn’t the right chewy. Well then, where was the right chewy toy when a dog needed it?

Mummy freaked out because I had swallowed both eyes, both ears and a paw off Mr. Stuffy.

She was worried it would all line my stomach and cause a blockage and I will need to go see the vet. (she is reading a little too much about intestinal obstruction in dogs ,I’m sure!)But nothing of that sort happened. I have as good an appetite as earlier, my tummy isn’t bloated and my stool is well formed and just right. I guess I AM a champion chewer!




Our garden is almost 70% done. Some pots are meant to be hung from the suspenders on the rim and a few lamps are to adorn the ceiling. Mummy is working on growing some plants in bottles that she means to style up!

It’s really nice that we can now sit outside for breakfast and enjoy the lovely weather. It rained yesterday. We sat outside listening to the pitter patter of the rain-drops on the roof, smelt the beautiful earthy smell, read a new book and munched on snacks. BLISS!


Our friend Ricky is visiting! We love it when he is here. He is a fine human pup and we always look forward to his visits as much as he does. This holiday our mission is to teach him to brush our teeth, brush our fur, feed the strays, paint earthen pots, read a dictionary and cursive writing. Last time he visited us, we taught him how to bathe us without getting water into our ears and he remembers his lesson perfectly well.




Will soon get back to you with the latest pup-date of our progress.

Till then, be good, keep wagging and feed the strays.

Lovely post! Your garden is looking fantabulous already! So glad you came to no harm after your chewy-stuffy mishap. Our friend Raps, a golden retriever, had surgery two weeks ago after swallowing two large Lego wheels. He very very nearly lost the fight!!!! Luckily he pulled through and is well on the way to recovery. So, be careful Buddy Boy! Oscar and Rosx

Oh Buddy, we're so happy you didn't experience any of the problems mom was expecting to see. Guess you showed her. M overreacts too on everything I do. Geeesh, humans sure are strange. (Besides, I don't think you ate all that stuff - you look too innocent to have done it. I bet one of your brothers did it).

We always get banished to the bedroom when anything interesting is happening around our house!

Hi Buddy! Tell your Mom that we must be reading the same things--I have gone through that same kind of worrying when someone ate something and I read what could happen. But I hope everything continues to be okay, and you've enjoyed your fun weekend with your friends!! And tell your Mom that your garden is really lovely, she really has a green-thumb!

Glad you didn't get a blockage... I can't imagine it would feel very good!

So glad your stuffy didn't stuff you up. Big hugs to your Mom for looking after the strays.
