Monday Mischief and Rubbish Mum!

Hello Everyone!
We are apologising on behalf of Mum, who is really falling behind on everyone's blogs, she has been really busy the past week and she hasn't even had chance to write about her crufts adventure yet. She is rather rubbish if you ask us, BOL!

She said that she will try to get to everyone's blogs in the next couple of days, in the mean time we hope everyone has a great week!

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday. Teaching 'nicely'

Back last summer, when Sampson was a new addition, we had to teach him meal time etiquette, by both waiting and taking food 'nicely', at first he really didn't grasp the concept....

Dante 'nicely'

Daisy Boo 'nicely' 

Sampson 'nic-'  Nevermind.

But he soon got the hang of it... (sorry if some of the captions are cut off!)

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Lincoln's French Craze Contest

Hello Everyone!
We hope you all had a great weekend and have lots of fun adventures planned for the week ahead. Mum had a very busy weekend, yesterday she went to Crufts where she saw lots of doggies, bought tonnes of nice things and even met up with Leigh! Then today Sampson and her went and did a charity dog walk for the local hospice. She will write about her adventures in her next post.

Now our bloggy friend Lincoln the Great Dane is holding a French Craze Competition!

You have to pick out a French word from the list he has given (or find one yourself!) then find out the meaning and take a picture that relates to it. then put that word on the picture. Simple!

The word Mum picked from the list was 'Joie' or joy then tried to take a picture to go with it. This is what she came up with (now she decided to use Sampson for the contest with Lincoln being a Dane and all :) )

Hope the caption has translated correctly, Mum isn't very good a French! Anyway she had lots of fun doing this and there is still time to enter as the deadline isn't until the 25th.

Till next time.

Wordless Wednesday

''Guess who?''

Dante update and Random Bits and Bobs.

Hello everyone!
We hope you all had a great weekend and are looking forward to the week ahead.

First off a big slobbery thanks to everyone who wished Dante well, he is on anti inflammatory tablets and pain killers and is getting a small walk each day now. Unfortunately his X-Rays were rescheduled for the end of the week, so we have to wait to find out what the route of his pain is! Poor lad. He seems very happy though, probably because of all the attention is getting, maybe he is putting it on, BOL!  We will keep everyone updated.

Now a very belated thank you to Basset Momma for giving us an award, go visit her blog it always makes us laugh!

Liebster means dearest in German and the award is intended to help up and coming blogs get the attention they deserve.  As with any award there is a bit of ceremony involved.  In order to accept the award we must do the following:
1. Copy and paste the award on our blog.
2.Link back to the blogger who gave us the award.
3.Pick our five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers and leave a comment on there blog to let them know they have received the award.
4.Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs.

Hmm this was a tough one, but we give it to:
1. The Thuglets
2. Stewey
3. Declan
4. Magic
5. Haopee

Thanks again Basset Momma!

Now as some of you may know we are all on the BARF diet, what does everyone else eat? Mum put us on the diet when it was just Dante and Daisy-Boo because we became really picky with our dried food. Here is an example of one of our meals:
This time Mum started with some sweet potatoes, some left over raw pork chops and veggies, a big pack of beef mince and some pig skin. Yum, yum!
 It's Sampson's job to be quality control for this whole procedure,  'Yup, it smells good to go Mum'.

Then we blend the potatoes...
 Then blend the veggies...

Then add the meat (the part Mum hates!) Again with Sampson as quality control!
Bon appetit! Can you guess whose bowl is whose?! ( The one on the right is tomorrows dinner :) )

Lastly a few weeks ago Mum bought a snood for Sampson from crafting4greyhounds who hand knits them and give the proceeds to helping to greyhounds! I needed something to keep my ears warms because they are always always cold! The snood definitely does the trick, but Dante and Daisy-Boo just laugh at me..maybe they are jealous! I can wear it ears in...
Or out! It matches with my jacket
I'm no fashion expert but I think I can definitely woo some ladies in this get up! BOL!

We hope everyone has a fantastic week,
