Helping in the Garden

It's been a lovely sunny day here in Orkney and we (me & Jess) have been helping with the gardening. For some reason Dad didn't see it as helping and kept shouting Mum to get us out of the way, especially when he was cutting the grass, and boy did it need cutting. I got lost at one point, if you look closely you can just see my head!

It was so hot, I wanted to go for a paddle but I wasn't allowed near the stream because of the ducklings, look they've really grown!

When they'd finished the gardening, Mum & Dad took our boy out for an icecream but because it was hot and we was tired, Jess & me stayed home and I slept in my big crate in the shed, it was lovely and cool!

More on the ducklings

Hi, I don't often 'revisit' a topic on my Blog (hark at me 'My Blog'!), but Dad took some more photos of the Ducklings and they are lovely, so thought I'd share them with you. I tried to say hello to them today, but their Mum was some mad, and flew at me, all hissing and quacking. Next thing I know, Dad's telling me off and I'm doing time in my crate.
I've told Mum & Dad enough is enough though, we want pictures of me on my Blog, not of Ducks, it is after all Mollie Westie's Blog!! Talk to you all soon.

The Ducklings

Those of you who follow me on twitter, might recall that one of our ducks - we have four who live in the stream at the bottom of the garden - made her nest right outside the front door. Well, she's hatched her eggs and there are now three duckings! They are absolutely lovely, but I find it very hard to resist the urge to chase them! I keep getting into trouble for chasing the grown up ducks, so you can imagine what they'd say if I chased baby ones!
They are only a couple of days old, and today is the first day we've seen them in the water. You should see my Dad, he's like a proud father, dashing in and out with a Camera, and making sure that the Gulls and Crows stay away. I guess it means I won't be doing any more paddling for a while. Dad says if I go near them I'm grounded (in my crate) for life!

The Hair Cut

It's been quite hot over the last couple of days, and quite honestly I've been a bit uncomfortable. So when Dad got the scissors out I didn't make as much fuss as usual. Mind you, if I'd known how short he was going to 'trim' me I might have had a bot more to Woof about! What do you think?

Trip to the beach

Can you believe it's over a month since I last posted an update on my Blog? Where does the time go? Those of you who follow me on Twitter will know that altogether too much time gets spent tweeting!! Anyhow, Twitter is down tonight so an ideal opportunity to update my Blog. Today has been a lovely sunny day in Orkney and to be honest I started the day quite cross. Dad has gone away for a couple of days, the boy had to go to school and Mum to work. That meant nice sunny day and I was in my crate - not good! Then unexpectedly Mum came home early, and I got to play in the garden. I should say at this point that my crate is not small, it's the size of a small room and I have plenty of room to move about in (I'll get Mum to post a photo of it on twitter). Anyhow, sun's out, Mum's home and I'm playing in the garden - result. Then the boy came home from school and reminded Mum he had band practice - BAD because Band Practice = more time in crate! So I was a bit surprised when Mum put me and Jess in the car as well as boy and his trumpet. Turns out that after dropping the boy off we were going to go the beach for a walk. We spent a lovely hour sniffling around and paddling in the shallows. I was very good and only barked at the birds a couple of times. All in all the day was a lot better than I thought it would be. Now I'm curled up on the sofa dreaming about tomorrow's adventures.
