Two Crazy Cockers - Formally known as Badger Boo's Daft Adventures. When we lost Badger Boo in August 2015 my heart broke and I lost the will to blog without him. I needed a little time off but I never intended to take so much time off. I soon realised when I came back that I needed to change my blogging style, keep things more relevant and cover more subjects. So here we are ready to share everything the dogs get up too, the ups and downs since my mum's stroke, plus the odd product review
As I've mentioned before we're a little behind everyone else, even though we started really early this year, we had a massive slug problem due to the floods and wet start to this year. For the first time ever we've had to resort to using slug pellets, not ideal, but it's so disheartening to lovingly grow your seeds into strong seedlings, prepare the ground and then plant them out, then to arrive the next day and find everything had been eaten, week's of hard work amounting to nothing. But as you can see from the pictures things are really coming along now.
These are my flower beds which are a first for us, but we wanted to attract Bee's, Butterflies and other insects, so far we've seen lots of Bee's and a few Butterflies, g0lad to be doing our bit to help the local wildlife.
Here's our Potatoes, Rhubarb and Cucumbers, we've had several harvests of Rhubarb already this year, the cucumbers have just started to flower even though they're still pretty tiny.
Next on our virtual tour are my Cherry Tomatoes, we have larger ones growing in the greenhouse, more Sweet Peas, Sweeetcorn and behind that is my Red Onions, one or two of them are huge already.
Himself had just been round with the lawn mower, the grass was pretty long because of not being able to get there since my knee operation for a couple of weeks, but it's all nice and tidy again now, just the way I like it.
Not a lot has been happening here as mummy is still recovering from her operation, she finds it hard to walk me with her crutches, so I've not been out much this week, it's not my fault she's a slow coach and can't keep up with me.
It's been very warm down here in the South of England, to be honest all I've felt like doing is just lazing around in the garden.
Last night I discovered a Toad in the garden.
I froze, stared at it and growled but it refused to move, it was blocking my way back into the house
Eventually mummy came out to investigate as I was outside for longer than is usual, she saw Me staring down the Toad and proceeded to laugh at Me.
After a little while she came outside and just picked me up and carried me back inside, still laughing all the time.
How rude is that?
Luckily I have my very own paddling pool tray of water in the garden to play in as I please, I used to have a nice big one that mummy had to blow up, but I chewed a hole in it a few years ago and she won't get me another one, she says I'll chew that one too, but I promise I won't.
In this hot weather please keep a look out for dogs whose owners unbelievably still haven't got the message that leaving a dog in a hot car is like roasting a chicken, and will kill us.
If you see a dog in a car on a warm day the RSPCA advice is to call the Police on 999.
If the police are unable to attend, call the RSPCA 24-hour cruelty line on 0300 1234 999or if you are in Scotland: 03000 999 999 for SSPCA (Please store this number on your mobile phone!)
Please be vigilant, dogs are relying on you to educate their owners and save them!
Good Morning Everypawdy. Last week I couldn't post because mummy was spending a few days living at the Vets People Hospital, she was getting given a new knee, so I had to go and stay with my good buddy Blue the Labrador and her lovely people. I was hoping mummy would come home wearing a Cone of Shame, then I could laugh my paws off at her and take picture like she does to me. Big disappointment! Did you know Hoomans don't ever get to wear one, how wrong is that!!! I've a good mind to put paw to paper and complain. Especially as my good friend Mr Darcy has to wear one at the moment, cos he was, OMP I'm not sure I can physically say what happened to him at the vets **feels faint at the thought** I gotta say it **whispers** castrated.
Poor Mr Darcy, I wish you well and hope you make a speedy recovery **breathes huge sigh of relief** I'm so glad it wasn't me. Had some lovely early morning walks with Blue and her people.
They are very kind to me but obviously didn't get the memo that I'm actually meant to be in the picture, but you gets the idea I'm sure. When mummy came out of the Vets People Hospital I was allowed to come home again, but before I could put on my Nurse Badger hat, I needed a good long snooze after playing hard with Blue for a few days.
Mummy is now recovering well and took me for a little walk yesterday, but crikey she's so slow, I was very good and didn't pull too much to give her chance to keep up, she only ran me over once with the wheely thing she has to use, so I'll be keeping my eye on that from now on, it didn't hurt but it sure made me jump. Hope you all have a pawtastic weekend. xxx
