Tuesday Giggle...

Hi all,

Hope every one's doing well out in Blog Land, there is an air of excitement with all the events lined up for the beginning of September :-) Link on the left to Sarge's blog for details if you haven't signed up for things.
As you all seemed to enjoy the funny we posted a couple of weeks ago, we thought you might like this. Our Momster found this online and is going to put it inside our front door!! Hee hee

Pets Live Here

To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our front door:

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our

1. They live here. You don't.

2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the
furniture. That's why they call it "fur"niture.

3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.

4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.

Bwah ha ha, Bwah ha ha!!! It's a bit cheeky isn't it, but still funny, hope you had a giggle :-)

Bad Hair Day!
 Love and Licks, Dex and Lou xxx

Our Walk Today and Rolling...

Hi all, we apologise for our absence this week, SHE, our PA went away to stay with a friend...without us...can you believe it?

Anyway we were treated to a great walk today to make up for it, here is half of it, we'll post the second half another time - we've been working on extra treats too due to emotional distress caused by abandonment and so far it's working ;-)

Here's our walk, this is the pathway leading into OUR first field, this part takes time as there are sooo many smells to check out:
 Past the blackberry bushes which aren't so good this year but nearly ready for picking:
 Then up to the first of several little bridges leading to one of the big fields:
 Soon time for me (Dexter) to stop and have a furtle, for those new to the word this means to get your nose right in there and have a good sniff around, it's a word we've always used and we know Winnie the greyhound does too - we're trying to get it in the official doggy language dictionary!
Next Louis finds something very interesting which needed investigating, a worm maybe?
At the end of the first field is our treat stop, we run ahead and sit here waiting because we ALWAYS get a treat here if we have been good :-)
Next stop the woods, we just missed a squirrel today, he shot up the tree just as we arrived, this is the entrance:
Wild pear trees on the way in along with apples and hazelnut trees:
There are 100's of trees, which one to leave pee mail on first...I could be some time!
After a good furtle through the woods it's across another little bridge to the next part of the walk, hope you enjoyed the trip so far, we'll finish it another time :-)
 Finally Louis has made an instructional video for the benefit of all the new Pupsters who have arrived recently in blog land, this one's for you - watch and practice next time you're out, find the smelliest piece of ground and...
Thanks for visiting, we hope you enjoyed the roll!! :-) have a great weekend all, we'll be round to visit you all over the next couple of days, Dex and Lou xxx

PS - I'm still looking for a Pawm date if any laydees need an escort ;-) 

** Edited to add Rubie said yes!!! As long as I get her home early and we all go together in the Limo she's allowed to go, how lucky am I???!!*

Funnies and Rainbows

Hi all, another weekend is here, yay that means Dog training for Louis which means I get the Popster all to myself tomorrow for a long, long walk - yippee!!

We have had rain all week which we're sure the gardeners were happy about but not so us. However last night it was just a light drizzle and then suddenly the sun shone through and this is what we saw...
It doesn't look half as pretty or bright in the photo, it was a funny thing because that day we read the sad news about Rudi from Golden Pines blog, Kim had written such a lovely piece about Rudi. The Mom said this rainbow was for Rudi and all other friends who have gone to the Bridge and are having fun there right now. We heard there was a pot of gold at the end of it,which we thought would buy us loads of treats but we didn't get there before it disappeared.

Anyway to finish on a lighter note we came across this funny which some of you may have seen but it's worth having a giggle at again :-)

How many dogs does it take to change a light bulb?
1. Golden Retriever: The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid burned out bulb?

2. Border Collie: Just one. And then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code.

3. Dachshund: You know I can't reach that stupid lamp!

4. Rottweiler: Make me.

5. Boxer: Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark.

6. Labrador: Oh, me, me!!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I? Pleeeeeeeeeze, please, please, please!

7. German Shepherd: I'll change it as soon as I've led these people from the dark, check to make sure I haven't missed any, and make just one more perimeter patrol to see that no one has tried to take advantage of the situation.

8. Jack Russell Terrier: I'll just pop it in while I'm bouncing off the walls and furniture.

9. Old English Sheep Dog: Light bulb? I'm sorry, but I don't see a light bulb!

10. Cocker Spaniel: Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark.

11. Chihuahua: Yo quiero Taco Bulb. Or "We don't need no stinking light bulb."

12. Greyhound: It isn't moving. Who cares?

13. Australian Shepherd: First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a little circle...

14. Poodle: I'll just blow in the Border Collie's ear and he'll do it. By the time he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry.

Hee hee, how funny is that?!  We noticed  they didn't include Miniature Schnauzers and were trying to come up with a good one for us, can you think of one if you're not on the list?

Anyway we'll finish now and let you get thinking, don't  forget the Back to School events going on all over Blog Land at the beginning of September, there's a button on the top left of the blog which will take you to Sarge Sir's for more info.
We've already sent in baby photo's and some bugs, we've got more to send off and some classes to register for, it's gonna be great fun!! Louis has his date for the Pawm, little Tessa, they even have their photo on the blog if you've noticed...ah young love :-)

Me, I'm going with my dancing shoes on to see if I can sweep some young lady off her paws ;-)
Just thought I'd add my mugshot in case of any interest from the laydeeeeees ;-)

Have a great weekend Guys, Dexter and Louis xxx

Rivers and Furtling.....

Hello Every Buddy and a special hello to our new followers this week, it's great to see you, we'll get round to visiting all your blogs this week. We apologise for being a bit remiss in visiting, we blame the Momster, our PA of course, we rely on her to do the typing for us and quite frankly she's fallen short lately.

Anyway, we hope you all had a good weekend. After all the excitement of the photo competition of the last month it seems weird to be 'back to normal'. SHE didn't get anything prepared for this blog so we'll just share this photo, one of our favourites and get back on track very soon.

The river bank, our favourite place at this time of year, so much to smell and furtle after. We have to be careful at the moment as the cows are very frisky and very inquisitive, we have various escape routes to avoid them but it can involve the Peep having to jump a 5 bar gate pretty quickly, now THAT needs a photo :-)

Will be round to visit everyone in the next day or so, love Dex and Lou xxx

Edited to add that we've just read Mr Pip's blog and friends to all Sammy, Andy and Sheeley are having some difficulties at the moment. Please visit Pip's blog to see how you can help. xxx
