Happy Halloween 2008

It’s Halloween tomorrow and, as usual, Missus took the opportunity to dress me up.

Ta da! This is ‘Homer the Wicked Wizard’. Don’t you think I look sinister?

As you can see, I eat humans and then display their remains as my prize trophies on my wizard hat. I’m truly evil... Oooohhhh evil.

Happy Halloween!

Hotel Golden Tulip Rotterdam Center

Having stayed at Citta Romana since arriving the Netherlands, last week we moved across to the ‘big city’ of Rotterdam. Here’s a quick review of my experiences so far.

This is me, all buckled up with my doggy seatbelt, ready to leave Citta Romana.

This is the hotel (the big building behind us) in which we are staying in Rotterdam. The hotel is called the Golden Tulip. We are only staying here for a short while before we move into our new house.

This is my hotel room. It’s the first time that I’ve stayed in a hotel.

My very own mini-bar! How cool is that!!! The main thing that I need to master now is how to order room service. Heh... heh...

Me on my bed. I’m not sure where the humans are going to sleep!

By the way, while we’ve been staying here, Dad has had another birthday. I got him a card in the shape of a cake. I also smothered him with lots of licks and kisses! Woof!

Photo of the Month

Hi folks, I'm proud to tell you that I have won yet another award (heh... heh...). This time it's the 'Photo of the Month' at the website: 'Dogs With Blogs'. Check it out here: DWB (Dogs With Blogs). Here's the page from the website...

Can you see me?

Here's my winning photo. (You may remember that this was just before we left China to travel to the Netherlands).

To get this award, I was first nominated by Charlie (Thanks Charlie). There was then a one month 'vote off' between my photo and a couple of competitors. Thanks to all those who voted for me.

Can't wait for my next award... (I'm booti-ful!!!)

Homer's Holland Holiday Home

Well folks, I’ve now recovered from my jetlag and I have begun to settle down in the Netherlands. We are currently staying in a charming little holiday village just outside of Hellevoetsluis.

Today I went exploring my surroundings and I thought I’d show you around.

This is ‘Citta Romana’, the holiday resort where we are staying.

I must admit, although I am a ‘city dog’ at heart, I have really taken to the country life. There is lots of wildlife around for me to explore and a multitude of aromas for me to sniff. (BTW, you can see my house in the background).

This was the villa which we stayed at when we first arrived.

A few days ago, we moved to the villa shown in the picture above.

This is a view of the back of the villa.

Me in my garden.

As I said, there is plenty of wildlife, and I even have my own duck pond at the foot of the back garden.

One of these days, I’m going to catch one of those pesky ducks!

Not far from our villa, there is a beach with a large field next to it. We checked it out today.

I was soon frolicking about like a mad dog.

I was pleased to see more canines around. It looks like I will be able to make many more friends here. This was a Dalmatian which Missus took a snap of.

I was soon back to my mad frolicking.

So far, my Holland adventure has been great. There is so much to do, the scenery is beautiful and the humans have been extremely nice to me. I think I’m going to enjoy it here...
