Happy New Year Everypawdy

Happy New Year to all my friends, followers and fans. 

It has been a tough year at Boo Boo Towers, with daddy being so ill and mummy losing her job, we couldn't have got through it without all your fantastic support thank you.

My New Years Resolutions are:-

Get the hoomans back out and about again for more Daft Adventures, 2013 is a new beginning.

  Re-train my hoomans (they have become cheeky and lazy)

Find a really good pile of Ea de Fox to roll in (mummy loves the smell)

Keep jumping smack into the middle of daddy's lap (cos I love to hear the squeak he makes)

Educate small hoomans that dogs aren't scarey.

Take more cuteness naps.

Teach them pesky Squirrels once and for all who is the "Boss of the Woods"

The Best Christmas Present Ever

I hope everypawdy had a pawsome Christmas? 

For several years now mummy has been trying to track down my breeder, she moved house and every year she sends us a Christmas Card but never ever puts her address **shakes head at hoomans daftness**

Well I has some good news, we has found her!

Mummy was clearing out a cupboard and found a very old card with an address and phone number on it. Onto the phone she got and it was her, it was Sabine my breeder and they talked for ages!

What a wonderful Christmas present for me, too find out that all my siblings are alive and well. Soon I will get to see some pictures of them all, and hopefully we will all get a chance to meet up again as I haven't seen them for many years.

It will be the greatest "Old Dog, Puppy Pawty" ever (we are all 11 years young now), sadly my birth mummy won't be there, as she crossed the Rainbow Bridge earlier this year which I was sad to hear, but crikey 15 years young was a great age to get too.

As the Old Year draws to a close and the New Year draws closer, my thoughts turn to all the pups that were given as presents at Christmas, and will sadly be too much for their new owners, and get dumped into an already overflowing Rescue system come January. 

How very sad for them, not to have the great start in life that most of us get, hopefully they will find new forever homes very soon.

I hear a whisper at home that mummy is thinking of  getting another dog now she isn't working. She has a passion for older dogs, as pups are far too energetic for her nowadays with here dodgy knee's.

 So it's paws crossed that I may soon have a new friend to accompany me on my Daft Adventures.

Happy New Year.

I Was Sleeping!!!

Mummy is so pleased she has finally figured out how to use the black and white feature on her camera. 

Problem was, I had to wake up to pose for her, as you can tell from my usually happy face I was not overly impressed at being disturbed!

You have to humour these pesky hoomans sometimes just to get some peace and quite.

Can you think of a caption for my grumpy face?

Educating Mummy in the Cold

As we head out into the garden I realise mummy has the camera out, cool I love my picture being taken.
**does a happy dance**

But hang on a minute, why is she taking pictures of silly stuff and not me? It's far to cold to be hanging around out here for no reason! 

What is she doing? 

She has climbed onto the raised bed! 
That is a definite "No No" I gets moaned at if I climbs up there!

So I barks to tell her off and gets Shhhhhh'ed **thinks** I suppose it is a bit early to bark cos of the neighbours, but how rude! Nopup Shhhh's me without good reason. 
**stomps off in a huff**

Anyway she carries on taking pictures and ignores me, by this time I was shivering and my unmentionables were getting most cold, so I decided to teach her a little lesson and started getting into shot, she wasn't happy, you can see the result here BOL.

Eventually she succumbed and started to take pictures of me at last, so she had obviously learnt her lesson. 

She can be quite intelligent sometimes for a hooman **whispers** just don't tell her I said that BOL .

She decided to be all arty today, and wanted me in the cobweb so I decided to humour her just so I could get back inside and into the warm again.

Think I'll give the photography sessions a miss next time, too cold out there for this old pup...

Bad Hair Day

What is it about my hoomum? 
She always does this to me when I needs a haircut **resigned sigh**

How many other pups have to endure this type of humiliation I wonder?

Or is it just me?

Winter Walks

Most nights mummy takes me for a walk through the woods to meet daddy from the train station. 

It's very, very dark and there are no lights in the woods. The best bit about these walks is nopawdy can see what I'm getting up too, so I can go off and find all sorts of mischief.

I spend most of the Winter walking in the dark with my hoomans, the only exception being the weekends when they are home during the day.

  I do get to see daylight though don't worry, Miss Jackie my walker takes me out to play with my friends whilst the hoomans are working, so it's not all bad cos we has so much fun.

But my favorite walks are with my own hoomans, cos lets face it, they are mine and I now have them fairly well trained to do what I want, when I want.

A Day in the Life of a Media Hound

My day usually starts with a game of fetch with my most favorite of tennis balls, it's really old and nearly bald but I loves it so much.

If I'm really lucky and mummy has the time, we go to the canal for a swim, whatever the weather it doesn't matter. Us Cocker Spaniels are a hardly lot when it comes to swimming.

Jackanory Part Nine

Gosh it has been a long time since I last updated my Jackanory story. 


We had just been away on my very first Daft Adventure, and I had finally learnt that other dogs could be friendly **breathes sigh of relief**.

That Summer we went away many times in the House on Wheels, I became firm friends with a Rhodesian Ridgeback pup called

Feeling Under the Weather

My good friends, on Monday I had a very nasty health scare and got rushed to the vets. My legs went all wobbly and I kept falling over, I was very scared as the room was spinning and I couldn't get up, I tried to nip mummy when she picked me up **hangs head in shame** as I was so confused. 

The Vet lady poked and prodded me so I swore at her too, she kept trying to see if I could use my feet, when I just wanted to be left alone. She looked in my ears and listened to my heart too. The Vet said
to mummy that I may have had a mini stroke or a fit of some kind. I do feel a bit better now and I'm at home again being spoilt rotten, I have a nice new hot water bottle in my bed to keep me warm.

The Gallery 117 ~ Fitness

This weeks theme for The Gallery is Fitness.

Himself is a keen kayaker, it's an excellent way to keep fit as well as being great fun, for many years he has been an instructor, teaching mostly young people the benefits of this brilliant sport.

Several years ago Himself decided to teach our Badger Boo to stand on the front of the kayak, as he kept swimming around and around, and appeared to want to join him. This picture was Badgers first lesson.

Within minutes he had learnt to balance, and soon discovered that it was very comfortable to curl up on the spraydeck and have a little snooze.

So whilst Himself is paddling around getting a massive upper body work out, Badger is busy exercising his right to take things easy, as only a dog can.

Badger is free to jump off at any time, but he will always opt to go back to the kayak after a swim, and refuses join me on the shoreline until Himself has finished, he loves it that much.

Please note:- 
We used only positive training methods and went at Badgers own pace. Not all dogs like water, or the instability of being on a kayak and could become very stressed very quickly, so do not try this if your dog is not 100% happy in water.

Why not pop over to Sticky Fingers to check out other peoples ideas on Fitness. 

The Gallery has teamed up with Coca-Cola and their Work it Out Calculator so you can see how much exercise you need to do to burn off the calories, what a great idea..

Bath Time and Parcels ~ Pet Blogger Hop

Oh dear, this week I have had to have three baths, the reason being, I have been testing out the local "Eau de Fox Poop" much to mummys annoyance, I find the whole process quite boring as you can see.

She really doesn't understand my reasons for rolling in it, and I think she must secretly enjoy giving me a bath, she does it so often. I have to humour her sometimes BOL.

Badger Boo Media Hound ~ Pet Blogger Hop

Hello *waves paw* my name is Badger Boo and I'm a Cocker Spaniel, I'm a little bit naughty so my hoomum reckons.

But I have to say, I think I'm just cute not naughty!

Sometimes hoomums do jump to the wrong conclusions, as any self respecting pup will know!
