Guest blog from some buddies of ours...

Hi all, we thought you'd like to meet some more friends of ours so we asked our Great Uncle Henry to write a bit about him and his family, here's what he had to say...over to you Henry!
Hello, Henry here. Well we thought it was time we introduced ourselves properly.  Our Two Legs hasn’t been very well and she has been lazing around a bit. However we pointed out today that she was feeling better so please could she help us write this. There are two of us here, first off there's me, Henry and I'm ten years old:
Henry - affectionately known as the Grumpy Old Man
...and Scruff who is half Mini Schnauzer and is twelve years old.  

Scruff - Who could resist that look!!??

As you can see we do get on quite well some of the time.
Move over Scruff - you're on my side!!
Henry is something like great uncle to Darwin, Louis, Dexter and Buster. We live in Dorset not far from the sea.  It is quite interesting here as there are two horses, four sheep and another dog who comes every day called Whizz. We know we are loved very much but  this is really a bit OTT we think.
Whizz loves his cuddles...
Two Legs thinks the summer is wonderful because the horses live in the field all the time and this means there are no stables for us for us to help muck out! Apart from the delicious things to eat, which make our breath  smelly, we are told; we wander into the house covered in hay and shavings and shake all over the carpet before she sees us. Henry loves that because it means she gets the cleaner out and he can follow it round and sit in the draught.
This is me (Henry) 'helping' out at the stables...
We are lucky enough  to have fields to walk in and a river to cool off in too, all just round the corner. 
The River Wey which runs through our village
 We will come back and tell you some more before long but Two legs is looking as if she would like to stop and we don’t want to put her off .  See you soon,  Henry and Scruff xx

Thanks Henry, lovely photo's - we hope we're as lively as you two when we're 10 and 12 years old, thanks for dropping by, Dex & Lou x

Nice to meet you, Henry and Scruff.

We would love to live on a farm with horses and sheep - and have all those fields to race around and do zoomies. Thanks for telling us about yourselves. We hope your Two Legs is feeling better soon.
