Ther're not there

Don't bother ... I've already tried and they are not there. ..

You hear dogs or other birds and animals that you could go and play with coming from inside the black box, from the grey box on the kitchen worktop, or hear and see them from the thing that is attached to the wall, but when you go round the back so that you can charge them from behind ... they have gone ... come back to the front ... and they are there again ... bark and they ignore you ... most confusing.

I have just given up ... and just watch them now like they do...

BTW 1 ...why why why am I unable to smell FOOD whenever I can clearly see FOOD that must be for ME in the grey box attached to the wall? And why do I see some people eating FOOD who do not give ME all... ever...

But sometimes they give me
FOOD that I have seen go in either one of the big white boxes with a door in the kitchen, or the smaller silver box with a light on the kitchen worktop - and in that one you do smell the FOOD ?

BTW 2... why do I see some some dogs in the silver thing attached to the wall being washed brushed, pedicured, and having all sorts of things done to them ....and as for the bows... when they could just find a nice piece of mud, water or even manure for a good roll, have a run through a hedge to be beautiful and smelling wonderful.

BTW 3... I am hungry.

Two plates of chips and a bowl of soup

Why in a dog friendly pub don't dogs (I mean me me me) have all the food?

The difference between 'come' and ''food

For those of you who are not GRs you may wonder why we take no notice when you say 'come' but are there as you finish the word 'food'. The reason is simple 'come' starts as a hard word and ends softly with the result that our ears are not tuned in to start with and we miss the ending, whereas 'food' starts softly and ends hard, the way our ears are designed to receive sound: so are able respond. [In case any of you think that means 'sit' or 'siiittt' is similar it is too short a word and the hiss at the begining makes us look around for snakes so we miss the remainder.]

It is very simple really.

And when you ask us to 'come' or 'sit' when we are alseep, busy enjoying mud or having a roll...

Friends and family

I've just heard about my new cousins ... well strictly speaking my masters brother and sister in laws dog's new little puppies, then they produced what they said were pictures of me as a little puppy...

I don't believe it ~ these just can not be me

I can't believe I was ever a little puppy ... A little thing who could hide behind a flowerpot or sit in Amie's shoulderbag, and how could I have ever been that clean...

Thats more like it ~ me with cousin Jasper, but he is not as muddy as he should be.

Working dog at Daisy Nook

Just in case there are those who think I only relax at my gentleman's club here are videos of me helping to clear up my river after adults have thrown sticks in there:

Apologies for the quality they were mobile phone video clips

And (not at Daisy Nook) enjoying the wet sand in Cornwall which is a jolly good place for GRs providing you avoid the Hooray Henrys in Rock & Polzeath


Here we are camping on the west coast of Scotland...
...and once again Gill can not keep up with me.
