Mum is talking about holidays all the time. Well, as often, we disagree… I opened two new businesses!
Yesterday morning and this morning we went to the little wood of the huge dogpark. Less sunshine, more shadow… That’s better for mum. Anyway: new area, so I started two new businesses! yeeey!
First, I went in the hiding business. I ran everywhere where mum could not see me… hahaha… No whistle-language? I’ll go and see for myself where that mum is and what she is doing! 😉 Well, mum, why don’t you use the whistle-language although I disappeared? Can’t do any harm? Who is Harm??? Oh, the fences? I see! Okay, see you later!
While in the hiding-business, I started the chasing-business… Saw plenty of bunnies running and playing around! Off I went, after them. They are in the hiding business too, they disappear in the ground? Do they have a hole to China just as T&T??? I should examine that!
Mum was laughing a lot. When I got too near to a bunny, I stopped and let it run away and it hide itself! That’s normal, mum, I’m in both businesses: chasing and hiding! 😉
Okay, and running too… 🙂
Will you carry me home, mum? NO? Gggrrr…
PS If you look carefully, you see mum forgot to put my play-collar on this morning! ❤
At low tide, at high tide… whenever we walk near river Scheldt, we meet ducks. Most of the time, we meet 2 or three ducks, swimming in the river!
Well, this morning at low tide, we saw a nice spectacle. Of course mum did not see it at first and I did not want to bark… you know, ducks could be scared. So to get mum’s attention, I was pulling on the leash. That always works. 😉 But I have to do it twice if I want to show something… she does not understand the first time! 😦
And then she saw it too. I asked her to get the red thing out and make some pics to show to my friends! After the city-sheep, I present you the city-ducks! Family got bigger! They were having their morniing walk to the water… Long walk at low tide… poor guys… ❤
Especially for all those mums and dads and other humans who like this song… Thank you Nellie McKay!
Off we went this afternoon, showing my new collar, outside this time… See it? 😉 I even saw myself! Was quite proud too! 🙂
So we went to the huge dogpark, a few mornings! Slowly bur surely, after the rain, the huge dogpark is becoming it’s huge self again…
So life goes back to normal, as humans say. Running and water-business are back! All friends are in the park again and… I even found a small ball! Later, I managed to steal a big ball from a German Shepherd! Yes, I did! You don’t believe me? See the pic!
But as often is the case, me and mum, we disagreed on the matter! I had to give it back! I did not want to! Foxy mum got the whistle and its language and a treat out of her bag… Stupid me!!! 😦 I left the ball where it was, nice and far away from mum and went to get the treat. Would get back to it later, of course! Got my treat, but… Well, I was put on the leash until the dad of the Sheperd picked up the big ball! This Shepherd has his dad well trained. 😉
But that dad was foxy too! He put the ball back in a big bag. Shepherd did not smile neither and he got no treat! Hahaha!
Who is the smartest in the end, you think? 😉 This lady says it is the one who got the treat! 🙂 Ball is gone anyway! 😉
Sometimes I discover new things on my way… to or from one dogpark or the other… Today, well… today… I was not too sure about the situation! 😉
We took a little path we never took before. I like that, of course! Lots to sniff and lots to discover. When I heard the bizar noise, I looked at mum. She smiled. Okay, this must be all right. She even takes the red blinking thing, so it must be interesting! 😉
Hey, you there! Here I am, it’s me, Kita… Who are you? Are you doggies? Your bark is a bit strange, I heard it a few minutes ago. 😉
They came real close and I had less to tell… Was not sure about the situation… Mum, shall we go on, please?
Someone is ringing the doorbell. As grandpa Lennox was teaching me, I bark a few times! When mum says it’s allright, I stop it! 🙂 That’s this lady’s duty! 😉 Hey, it’s the building-lady bringing a parcel! I know her very well, she is my friend, she has doggies too! She says the parcel is for me!
Mum, a parcel for me, from New Zealand! What, I can not open it myself? To be sure I don’t do any dammage? Okay, okay, hurry! Oh, my dogness, mum, that’s cool! New collars and new leads! Oh mum, can I try them on? Yes, even fototoot. What do you say? Inside? It is raining too much to fototoot outside? Pfff, inside other humans and my friends can’t see me with them! Later? Okay, that’s fine. Let’s fototoot! I am beautiful now, am I not? With this wonderfull collars? Very lady-like! 🙂 ❤ We get all happy of these beautiful colours! ❤
Mum, listen, if I have to do all this bizar moves with my head to show the collars, I would like to get some treats! What? She says yes? Is she ill? Must be… I am a good girl, mum? Fine, she says! 🙂 Oh, and I suppose I cannot wear them to go to the huge dogpark to play with? 😦 No, I can’t, I knew it! 😦 I’ll wear them in the city? Okay! 🙂
Mum, and who made this beautifull collars and leashes? The mum of Tussock and Bracken? Waaauw! She is a great mum! You know, mum, I’ll always wear this beautiful collars in honour of Lady Tussock at the Rainbow Bridge. Maybe Tussock can explain at my grandpa Lennox over there that her mum made these beautiful collars and leads? ❤
Mum, look, my name is on it!
Mum likes this, on the box!
Yes, my name is on it!!
I want treats for all these modelling!
These days our house is occupied by always new ‘members’. These days we have the visit of a special snail: a very big and coloured one. – I know, I only can see it is big! 😉 Mum made it appear although it took some time!
And this one is not going to stay as the elephant I cannot touch! Oh no, within a few weeks he will be moving to a very little human!
The very litlle human is born is June. He is the son of the “Eil@ndmeneer” and his wife. The Eil@ndmeneer is a colleague and friend of my librarymum. He is the one who learned us how to tell our stories here! Mum calls it blogging! I don’t know who is Blogging, I never met him, but anyway, I like the Eil@ndmeneer. He loves books too, just like my mum.
Look here if you want to meet him: https://everydayanairedale.com/2012/07/19/donderdag-stapdag/
And of course… the snail is NOT to be touched! 😦 High up somewhere untill he leaves! 🙂
PS The Eil@ndmeneer – who is not an Eil@ndmeneer anymore, he changed jobs – is telling stories too! https://mediaatelier.wordpress.com
Mum made me a promise: next time we see my new friends, she will make decent pictures! She ruined them all. She tried to fix it a bit, but tonight’s episode is unearthy and weird! Hope you’ll have fun with this, but I’m not too proud of my mum’s red blinking thing today! 😦 On the contrary! And because I’m a lady, I will not say I’m a bit pissed, 😉 I’ll put it nicely: I’m not pleased at all with these pics… 😦
Maybe if you click on them, you’ll see at least something! 😉
But we had fun tonight in the small dogpark! These girls are new in town, so I’ll meet them more often to play with them! That’s a great thing! Their mum and dad are nice too! The girls are rescues! But you would not say so! They are great new friends! 🙂
The little one is Phoebe!
And the white and black one, that’s Lady!
This morning we were on the beach very early! But still we had to walk a long way before I could get of the leash… summertime, you know…
I was amusing myself in the running-business, up and down the waterline. Then I found something to play with, funny thing, made a bit noise too! Mum said something about irresponible humans and their garbage.
At one moment, I did get this special smell in my nose and off I went, mum and her explanations were not interesting! Yes: finding-business works today! Mum came to have a look and yelled that I had to drop it. 😦 No way, back in the running-business! My find!!! 😉
Ohoh, you don’t know my mum if you might think I got away with it! Whistle language! Okay, I come, but I bring my find with me. Mum is even more sly than a fox, my dogness! She did not say drop it! She said: sit. Okay, I’ll do that. 🙂 Stay? With my find? Okay. 🙂
Voilà, next moment I was on the leash. 😦
Los! (=Drop it)
What? She means it? I can’t run away anymore! Damnit, mum, that’s not fair! It’s mine, I found this good smelling thing! 😦 What is she saying? Not eat it? Okay, I can sniff at least? 😉 In the end it seemed not that good and I peed on it… no pic of that, of course! 😉
When my mum was a human pup, people did not travel that much around the world. Going to the seaside in our own country was a very big journey! Well, yesterday we went to see another mum and dad (the mum who makes the nice flowers!). They were staying in mum’s puppyhood holiday place!
Back to the past, mum said. Is this place called Past, mum? No? Sometimes I really don’t understand her and her human expressions, think she means the place, though! We made a big walk in Past. We went up to a very little building, looking like a mushroom. Many stairs to do! 😦 Mum says she went there to read her books when she was a puppy. Books, I could have guessed that. 😉
Mum, here are no books?! Oh, she brought them with her and she sat there: reading and looking to the sea! ❤
Time for a fototoot. 🙂
I agree, mum! Nice place! When do we go back? 😉
