Mick & Me

Hi hi, gosh we beed lazy at updating our bloggy! We had visitors this weekend so we beed busy getting lots of fussing!

Me went back to my homeland of Wales last week to see my breeders, their other doggies, and best of all, my brother Mick, whee! The main reason mummy wanted to go was to get some help grooming my face, but me was only bothered about playing lots of bitey face.

When we arrived, me explored the garden while mummy had a cup of tea, then me had to go on the grooming table while me getted groomed. Martin (same name as my daddy, tee hee) stripped off all my puppy face fuzz. He said me has very good head, nice and long already and me generally be coming along very nicely. Me be 21" to the withers, Mick be 21 1/4". They had worried that he be bit small, but felt happier after seeing me be similar height. Mick has already done 2 shows, whee!

Anyway, when the boring stuff was done, it be time to play! We had such fun together. Me no thinks these photos need lots of explanation - me be sure you can see how much fun we be having. I know some of the photos have lots of teethies on display, but me can assure you it was all playing. In case you can't tell who be who,me has collar on and Mick has hairier leggies than me.

When we were both tired, it be dinner time. Me getted spoilt and getted bits of biscuit and sandwich. Mummy says we better not tell daddy cos he be strict about doggies getting food from the table, so shhhh! It be our secret, OK?

You can see my face in this photo. Me thinks me looks much more grown up now. Daddy thinks it be funny to keep asking me "Hey Cassidy, why the long face?"

Me practiced standing nicely like me will have to in a show while looking for the cows in the field below.

Isn't the view beautiful? Mummy says she feels so relaxed every time she comes here. Their house has 8 acres of fields and woods, and is surrounded by countryside too.

Anyway, the day after my visit, me getted very muddy playing at Seven Fields with my big Harry and my friend Harry the Cocker Spaniel, so mummy will take some proper photos of me looking all grown up soon.
