A Weekend with the Golden Girls

Last weekend, my humans went on a short break to Rome. (More about this later).

Normally, I’m not too happy when my humans go off gallivanting to exotic places and leave me behind. Not this time though. My humans found a new dog-sitting family for me. They were a very nice couple who stay on a houseboat with its own garden and live only a short distance from the beach. Best of all, they have a ‘booti-ful’ young female golden retriever. Even better, they were also looking after another female golden retriever at the same time. I couldn’t believe my luck! I spent a ‘naughty’ weekend with two gorgeous young ladies.

Here are a few pictures taken during my stay with them...

This is Lobke, a three year old, good looking golden retriever. Wait a minute... that sounds like a description of me. Talk about compatible!

The lady on the right belongs to my dog-sitters. Her name is Amy. She is only a year old and she is very charming. (Unlike myself – check out my squinting. I was trying to put on a ‘seductive’ persona, but I just looked like I needed to go to the toilet. D’oh!)

A close-up of Amy.

As you can see, she loves to have her photograph taken and is always ready for the camera...

... unlike me, as you can see from the picture above. D’oh! (again).

Anyway, I really enjoyed my weekend and I can’t wait to meet up with Amy and Lobke again.

Ciauuu bambino! :)

:) What a nice weekend, hein, smart Homer? Two boootiful golden retrievers! Your hoomans love you, well that's for sure! They make sure you stay happy, confy and... in a veeeery good company! :)
I always finish your posts laughing, my friend. This blog is great for anyone's soul... you have a smashing sense of humour!

And that's why i love you so, Homie!

(I keep sleeping in my old blanket... can't manage to jump in my hoomans bed... It's so unfair! That's why I'm waking them up half an hour earlier, at 0700... there you go!!)

(oh, and yes, once I am off leash, I become a wild dog... I know exactly the moment NOT TO come back to my hoomans... it's the exact moment that I'm supposed too, you see?? This is an art. They starting running around in circles after me... and I pretend that I'm playing with them... but I'm actually taking revenge of not eating all the stuff I want too in all the moments I feel like. Yeeep... :))

Oh! I envy you! I bet the two ladies were fighting for your attention! Your Mom and Dad should go away more often so that you can have more time with these pretty girls. Love, Dino
