Mum is going away....and a Dante update

Hello Everyone!

Firstly a BIG thanks to all of you who asked about and gave Dante well wishes. He is still limping but has been to vets for another course of meds, which seem to take his pain away.

However, this does limit the amounts of walks he can go on, so to make life easier for him we have been taking out separately from the terrible two so he doesn't over exert himself. I just take him down to the beach for 20 mins so he can do a spot of his favourite past time - swimming!
Boy o boy does that dog love to swim! I take him to a different beach to our usual one, it has a sand bank which saves him stumbling over stones and rocks to reach the water. So Dants gets his walkies, then the other two are waiting patiently to get theirs.
He never seems worse on his legs for his swims, even though he has to be dragged away when its time to go home- thats part of the problem he over does it! Bwhaha!

The weather here in England has been awful lately, it has rained up here in Cumbria for 2 days straight which meant very soggy walkies! Ugh, but its clearing up again now so are walks are a lot less sodden!
But now, we have some news....Mum is leaving us and going on holiday...for  A WHOLE TEN DAYS!!!!

I mean we know she is entitled to a little R&R, but we think  that is a tad excessive don't you? She keeps babbling on about a place called Tenerife and saying how hot hot hot it is going to be. But where does that leave us?! Mum won't put us in kennels so Grandma is going to look after us instead. But how could she leave us for that long....totally unreasonable don't you think, what's wrong with relaxing at home? We are trying to make her feel bad for leaving by moping around and being grumpy bums but nothing is working, pah! Don't worry she keeps telling us she is actually going to miss us, that must be a good thing, right!?

We might  have to cause some trouble for her, heheh, but don't tell her we said that.
We will catch up with you all when she gets back!!

The Gang


  1. Way to GO Dante..

    Now I pawsonally think 10 minutes with my mom being away.. is excessive... 10 DAYS... OUT OF THE QUESTION.. I say... file a complaint with management.

  2. Everybody knows Grandmas are there to spoil you - you could turn this to your advantage my friends! Mummy2Legs wishes she was off to Tenerife with your Mum - we have had a lot of rain in Yorkshire too! Loved your beach pictures! Take care, Barnie x

  3. Dante you go swim pal and make the most of it. We hope you are getting better and mum lucky her is escaping the rain! Mummy send us some sun from Tenerrifeee we need it in Londinium. Team GB we had better be entering water sports in the BO2012 events.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. You are CERTAINLY Welcome to be Spec Taters ... butt geeee you already HAVE grrreat pix fur Swimming and Catch me IF you Can... right here... Love to have you compete. I'm just sayin.

  5. When mom's away the dogs will play? Have fun!

  6. Glad to hear your leg is feeling better Dante. TEN DAYS AWAY?? Sounds like some kind of cruelty to us! Thank goodness for Grandma we say. Hope you get spoilt rotten and we think you SHOULD DEFINITELY get some kind of reimbursement/treats when mum comes home, just sayin! (Have fun mum). No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  7. Oh Dante, I am so glad to here you are feeling a little better. And of course, water is very good for our illnesses, isn't it. I mean a good swim can cure anything.

    I am sorry that your human is leaving you. 10 whole days.

    Wow......thank goodness for grandmas.

  8. I'm so glad he's feeling better! Those are some pawsome pictures

  9. So good to hear that Dante is doing a bit better. Sometimes Mom will walk Phantom alone too so he doesn't get too tired out.

    We think it will be fun for you to have Grandma there to play with, but do try to be good:)

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  10. Mom, you take care and have your much needed R & R.

    Sampy, make sure you don't stampede on Dante because he might get hurt again. Daisy, watch your brother. Dante, rest while you aren't being taken to beaches.

    I'm glad that everything seems to be turning out well. We will see you in a couple of excessive days.

    Huggies and Cheese,


    Oh, and give my regards to grand ma. She's a brave woman to be taking care of you three ^^.

  11. Ooh, a nice HOT vacation! That will be awesome!

    Hey, it's probably pretty awesome when Grandma comes to visit. I know that my grandmother is always pretty awesome to be around, and Elka agrees.

  12. Incredibly unreasonable but Grandma will spoil you rotten! See you soon! Deccy x

  13. The swimming will be good for Dante's leg, they always chuck humans in water to excercise their bad legs.
    Our mum is soooooooooooooooooooooooo jealous of your mum, LOL.
    Have a great time with Grandma (we predict extra treats!)

  14. I can't believe you are being left for a whole 10 days, that is beyond cruel, But does give you plenty of time to plot and scheme!! BOL I am sure you will have a fantastic time with your grandma tho!!

  15. Have a great holiday and best wishes to lovely the pictures, super as always.

  16. Glad Dante gets to go for walks at his own pace. :)
    Enjoy YOUR vacation with your Grandma. We're sure she'll spoil you rotten.

  17. Aaaw That's awesome that you've found a way to exercise him without hurting his legs! The weather has been bad in the Midlands too, so bad that most little rivers went over banks! Indigo thought she could still jump over one of them, and landed head first in a deep pool of water and mud, so she had to swim for the first time! She panicked at first but i think in the end she enjoyed it!

  18. Glad to hear you're getting a bit better Dante - take care with the walking and enjoy your swims! Tell your Mum to enjoy her holiday in the sun - and hope you guys have fun too - woofs and licks from Magic xx

  19. Hope Dante will feel better soon! Tell your mom to enjoy her vacation! Love the last pic!!!

  20. Oh my! Ten days! Thank goodness for Grandmas!! I sure hope Dante is okay, I'm just catching up after being sick.
