at our house

It's not easy taking a photo of three, they won't stay still long enough.

Except when they are fast asleep. 

It was very quiet, suspiciously so.  I went to see what they were up to.  Kizzie had .. erm .. mounted Murphy and was giving it her all.

That's another first.

FOR SALE - Two hooligans

This evening we went for our usual walk. Kizzie jumped out of the car and ran off for a poo.  As I picked it up an ear of grass pinged onto my hand and left a lovely smear of poo.  Deep Joy! 
We got through the gate without incident, then Kizzie ran off and started barking fit to wake the dead.  The little hedgehog rolled into a ball and pretended not to be there.

I got Kizzie's lead on and hauled her away, still barking at the top of her voice and yanking me back towards the hedgehog.

I finally walked away smelling of poo, with a dislocated shoulder and burst eardrum.  All the while Murphy stood next to me like a little angel, although the occasional woof comment was passed.

We did our loop of the park ok, then Kizzie legged it back to the hedgehog, poor little thing hadn't moved.  Apart from when Kizzie thwatted him with her paw.

We met a teeny tiny 11 week old chihuahua x jack russel puppy.  Stroppy little thing was barking and trying to chase Kizzie and Murphy away.  Her new mum looked worried but we reasured her that the hooligans were friendly.  That's not what she was worried about - she thought the chihuahua might turn out to be a stroppy bitey dog!  Reassured that it was ok to let the dogs sort it out themselves, little ruby eventually calmed down and stopped trying to massacre K&M.  What a trooper, and a lucky little dog whose humans want to do what's best for her.  I hope we meet her again.

After the excitement we strolled back to the park gate, the hedgehog had disappeared, and all was well.  Out of the corner of my eye I saw Murphy gobbling something.  Nooooooo!  I think it was cat poop.  I guess we will be seeing that again.  I still haven't got the stain off the carpet from the other day when he up-chucked everything he had eaten for the past three days!  I was going to slope off for a few days in September for a rest and re-charge, but I guess I may need the money to pay for a new carpet.  This one will be mud coloured.

How much to buy my babies?  Hahaha you couldn't afford them ;)

Kizzie and Murphy go to the seaside

A good FIRST for Murphy - he went to the seaside.

Kizzie remembered and immediately ran off closely followed by Murphy of course.  But they came back :)

Murphy learned not to get down wind of Kizzie when she is digging.  Murphy wasn't interested which is very telling, now I know for sure who digs up the garden....

It was hard to get a photo of them in the sea as they were charging about and wouldn't stand still

We had a lovely day.
