Sleeping with the Enemy

Greetings all! I hope everyone is well.

We've been busy for the last couple of weeks. First of all, my humans were away. Then I got sick (I was pooping lightning!). Thankfully, I'm OK now and I'm ready to start blogging again. Blog! Blog! Blog!

Unfortunately, Lilly has now gone back to stay with her humans. least she won't be stealing my food and toys any more!

I wanted to show you some photos taken when Lilly was staying with us. I must say, that dog had some weird habits and she was forever disturbing my beauty sleep...

Here's Lilly using my leg as her pillow...

... and then my back...

... and even my belly.

Anyway, I do miss snuggling up to her.

Lilly and the Art of Zen

As you'll know, if you've read my blog before, one of my favourite pastimes is to stare out of the window and watch the world go by. I've spent countless lazy afternoons meditating in this way.

So, now that Lilly is staying with us, I thought I would introduce her to the therapeutic charms of my hobby. Unfortunately, I wasn't to know that Lilly would soon be disturbing my Zen-like trance. In fact, within fifteen minutes, she was positively driving me crazy.

Have a look at the clip below and you'll see what I mean...

I'm Three!

Yesterday was my birthday. I've now reached the grand old age of three. You may not think that this is particularly old, but if I was a human, I would now get the 'key to the door'. (I would also be able to drink, smoke, drive, vote and have sex. I'm not too bothered about the first four but the sex would be OK. As it is, I'm heading for being a fourty year old virgin. Sigh...).

Anyway, enough of my "old man's" rant. As is befitting of my 'old age', my birthday celebration was a relatively quiet affair, but I still really enjoyed it.

Of course I was showered with lots of attention, which I always love. Most importantly, however, Missus cooked lots of sumptious food for me! (Don't worry, Lilly got some too!)

Take a look at the photos below.

This is me with (one of) my birthday cake(s). Unlike on my previous birthdays, this year Missus baked me a number of smaller cupcakes rather than one big birthday cake.

Even better... Missus made me a prime steak dinner. Unfortunately, I had to share it with Lilly (the greedy monster).

Dad sang his customary "Happy Birthday To Homer" song. It sounded awful, but I pretended to enjoy his singing...

"Happy Birthday to me! Happy Birthday to me! Arooo... "

Missus knows what a couple of wolves we are, so she broke the cupcakes into smaller pieces for us. I had two and Lilly had one. Look at our hungry faces!

We both thought that my doggy birthday cupcakes were YUMMY!

It wasn't only Missus, Dad and Lilly who wished me a Happy Birthday. I'm really grateful to say that many of my friends around the world had been in touch to wish me 'Many Happy Returns'.

Here's an e-card designed by Rocky, Bear and (my dear departed friend) Lacylulu to show what I mean.

From Rocky, Bear and Angel Lacy Lulu. Thank you.

And thanks to all of you for your good wishes on my special day. Arooo!
