Boring Week

Hi hi everyone. We be bored this week. After having some nice Spring sunshine earlier this month, this week seems to be rain, rain and more rain. We have had to had walkies round the streets instead of running around over at Seven Fields, boring! Me be missing all our pals who we see most day over at the fields. Me hopes the sun comes out tomorrow and it no be too muddy there. Mummy be getting me all ready for my show on Monday and she says muddy legs be a no-no, but me has seen her put mud masks on her face, so me no knows why it won't work for me!

Anyway, we have been out in the garden when it no be raining. Now it be warmer, if not drier, Big Harry likes to lie in the doorway with his body inside and his hear hanging outside, silly boy!

He goes on regular tours of the boundary.

Me be well trained by Big Harry now, so me does lookout duty too. We be good though, we don't bark at stuff. My favourite thing to watch be Josh and Chloe next door bouncing on their big trampoline! Me goes on E J's trampoline too, whee!

Paul next door beed mowing the lawn, so Big Harry made sure he beed doing a good job! We no mind the lawnmower noise.

Now those of you who were at the DWB might have hear Big Harry telling tales on me that I be eating the Wisteria. Well OK, not so much telling tales as telling the truth, tee hee!

Mummy spied on me and taked these photos from inside the house, that's why there be reflection. Doesn't she be sneaky!

Daddy no likes the Wisteria anyway, so me just trying to help him get rid of it.

Bingo! Me getted a nice big piece off to chew on. Don't worry by the way, it not be a harmful plant, and mean mummy and daddy don't let me eat more than a quick chomp, boo.

Me thinks that Bog Harry despairs of me sometimes, look at his face! Me be sure he once beed a silly puppy too!

I hope you have no rain today so that you can go to the field.

So you are having your first show coming Monday? I sure hope that you do well in the show. Please take more pics to show us, ok?

hi Cassidy, you sure are getting to be a tall girl now. that's good that you are monitoring your garden and pruning the wisteria. we will like to hear how you do in your dog show. maybe you will be famous like a model or a movie star! we might have to ask for your pawtograph pretty soon! hee hee



Hi Cassidy,
I guess thats what they mean by being caught red-pawed! Does wisteria taste good? The is a huge one in the park across the road that is now flowering beautifully. Maybe we should go and try it, what do you think?

Lorenza said...

Hi, Cassidy!
What is wisteria? I am thinking it is something we call here "enredadera". Good job helping them to get rid of it!
Are you excited about your show next Monday? I will be rooting for you from here!
Kisses and hugs

Faya said...

Oui les humains ne comprennent pas toujours que l'on veut les aider...
Et toute cette pluie c'est vraiment terrible...j'ai des pattes de canards bientôt..mais aujourd'hui ils annoncent le soleil et peut-être je pourrai faire du jardin avec Véronique. J'espère qu'il sera chez vous aussi pour un beau week-end.
Gros bisous à tous, Faya

Amber-Mae said...

I don't think I've seen Wisteria before but what's that? Is it like a vine or something that crawls? Bet it's tasty...

Love licks,

gordy and georgie said...

Please do not chew the wisteria. It is poisonous to doggies. We lost our Gwandma's dog a few years ago because it ate a bit of wisteria branch when no one was looking.
We really enjoy reading about your adventures. Cassidy is growing up so fast!

Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

Hee Hee, Harry seems to have the look that you mention.

Noah the Airedale said...

Yes we remember Harry telling us about the wisteria. You're doing a good job at trimming it. Try not to poke your eye out though.


Jake of Florida said...

We were thinking about wisteria for our new arbor -- but got a pretty yellow vine called mandevilla instead. Hmm, wonder how it tastes.

Cassidy, you are getting so big, we almost didn't recognize you. Good luck in the show!!! Take lots of pics.

Jake and Just Harry

Deetz said...

I am sorry it rain there all the time, it stormed here last night really bad. It was scary
Its Time To Vote for the Contest....Spread the word

Weeny&Daisy said...

Ugh, we hate this rain too.. go away! We were supposed to have walkies in the park, but instead a walk round the block, fun, but not the same! We think that eating the Wisteria looks like fun, if you can reach it, why not!

Love Weeny and Daisy xx xx

Gus and Louie said...

Looks like you had a nice day for chomping on the plants. That is Louie's favorite pass time also..

Cassie Girl!

Come to GooberStan for weekend & *I'll* get you ready for your show!!! You see how we take mud baths and zoomin' VERY seriousuly here.

Tell your mummy that we take good care of our frens and you will have a relaxing and fun weekend!

Tell Big Harry I love his fuzzy face and would love to snuggle him like I do my Hairy Stanley! (I especially like to snuggle after mud baths.)

YOu are a good gardner, girlie, and you're getting SO BIG! It almost seems like you're older than me (but you're NOT hehehe)!

Goobery love & tons of kissies,

Patience-please said...

Oooh! Cassidy!! We are excited for your first show! It will be so exciting and fun. Sometimes it can be a teeny bit much, at very first, but you'll learn right away that it is great fun and ever so entertaining!
Wisteria looks delicious..

Finni said...

Ah, yes ... a young gardener in the making. Very commendable. Wisteria needs HARD pruning to make it flower. I think you have the right idea there Cassidy. Good luck at the show. Enjoy yourself!

The G-Dales said...

Penny & Poppy said...

Cassidy, we hope you do very well in your show! Our mom's wisteria has lots of leaves, but not a single flower this year. Maybe you should come and prune it for her! Or maybe it just shouldn't get so cold when it's trying to flower! We vote for solution #1...

Poppy & Penny

Well, somebody has to do the landscaping.

Molly and Taffy said...

You obviously have green paws Cassidy as you know exactly which branches need to be taken off.

Good luck with your first show.

Asta said...

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

You both make boring look like so much fun!!! Is the weather gonna be good enough this week for another awesome walk?

What great photos!!

And I totally agree Cassidy - trees and plants really don't belong on fences - I made sure to remove ours!!!

Hope you got to go to the fields and good luck at the show, I'm sure it'll be loads of fun :)


Willow the Black Dale said...

Good luck Cassidy in your show! You look really really pretty!

I think you do a great job at pruning. i also think you are right about Sir Harry. He had to to have been a silly puppy once too. After all....he is a dale.

Have a happy day,

Peanut said...

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh Cassidy...I love to prune all the plants around here too and ate a bunch of dandelions this weekend...mmmmmmm!!! It's my first barkday this weekend and I wondered if we could maybe take a trip somewhere? Are you going to be at Blue's Pawty??? Maybe afterwards we could sneak off if it's ok with Harry? I'll be a gentleman, I promise!!!


T-man said...

That wisteria looks nice and crunchy. I say go for it! You dad will be grateful to have fewer gardening chores to do.

Pacco de Mongrel said...
