Mum has been a busy bee lately and firstly a big thanks to www.dogtrainingcollars.
com for this post today. but she told us that there
was a big surprise for her(and us we hoped!) coming through the hole in the wall
and at the weekend we heard a ‘thud’ at the door. So naturally we had to inform Mum with a
chorus of barks of this strange gift from the hole in the wall…but alas the
parcel was not filled with delicious treats for us…well what on earth is going on Mum?
This doesn't look like edible goodies to me...but it does have a dog on it, so I suppose it can't be all that bad, can it?
Now Mum told me that a very nice company sent ‘us’ a wonderful book to read. Now I don’t know about you..but I'm not too sure about doggies reading…Mum says we lack the brain capacity, or some nonsense like that. But me, as a lady doggy can read perfectly thank you very much. So after Mum read the book, I took it upon my highly intellectual self to read and review this book on behalf of us doggy kin (okay so Mum helped me a bit with some big words)
Now the book 'Sad tale for me' is aptly called by the author -who I’d like to add is a doggy himself, an ‘bidography’ which Mum says is a play on words. It is written from the point of view of a little doggy, like our blog!- called James Barklee . It is written for little children humans (and grown ups too) with some wonderful illustrations of James Barklee and his adventures.
I like it because it really shows what life is like for a doggy in the eyes of a doggy to be precise, plus I can relate because James is often in trouble because of his size and although he is an itty bitty doggy I can think of one doggy who get into trouble a lot because of his size, can you guess who it could be? BOL!
The book is a lovely read, if I do say so myself there is lots of nice little quotes, that I can really relate too, like this one: ''...because my family loves me; eccentric, individual me, just as I love them faults and all''
Sweet ins't it? The only problem is that the book is too short, I would have liked to read more. Well done Mr James Barkele, your just like us, a typical doggy, with lots of doggy problems…but no matter how many naughty things you do, or how mad your family may seem they will always love you- no matter what!
Now you may wonder why I am wearing a poppy on my head. Yes I know it makes me look fabulous but there is reason behind it. It’s to commemorate Remembrance Day on the 11th November to remember all those who gave their lives in the call of duty. Mum says to be respectful we all have to wear one, Mum got these wonderful handmade ones from her Manager at work. I think we look the part!...even if the boys were a little bit reluctant to have flowers on them...
Finally- can you believe it is November already? I don’t know about you but it is really really cold for this time of year, the mountains already have snow on them. Dante is feeling the cold in his legs, so Mum made him these special ‘pants’ which she puts hot water bottles in (but not too hot!) so his hips don’t get cold and stiff…and although he looks stupid they keep Dants a happy Alamants!
Mum also keeps saying it is only another week till our new playmate is due to be born..wonder what she is on about?! Have a great week everyone, remember it is nearly the weekend and you can all get up to lots of great adventures then, as long as it is not too cold. hehe.
