Oh I do like to be beside the seaside!

Yesterday, Muzzle and Daddy took me to a new place. We arrived and there were lots of people there and lots of other dogs - Muzzle said it was because it was sunny, everyone had decided to go.

There was a big puddle of water there - Muzzle said it was the sea!

We found a quiet area of the beach so I could have a run offlead after my toy without getting in anyone's way. It was strange running on the ground as it sunk a bit beneath my paws.

Muzzle threw my toy into the water so I had to go in a little way to get it - the water tasted funny, not like it does out of my bowl!

I got the toy as quickly as I could!

I sat with Dad by the water while Muzzle took some photos.

I played with my toy on the beach for a while, running after it and bringing it back to Muzzle and Dad. They were really pleased with me because there were lots of people and dogs on the beach but I didn't run off. Muzzle said my re-call was brilliant!

After playing on the beach we went to get some food - Daddy gave me some of his fish and Muzzle let me have a few chips!

A nice lady came to say hello to me and said she was looking to adopt another Lab, so Muzzle gave her details of the Lab rescue I came from and of Oldies Club. A man came over with a little girl to ask if she could say hello to me too - I sat really nicely and let the little girl stroke me.

Then we walked up the cliff path - Muzzle was a bit scared as we went high, but I helped her be brave. The sun was falling down in the sky and it looked pretty so Muzzle took some photos.

I slept all the way home!

Guess where I've been?!

Muzzle and Daddy took me somewhere exciting today.

Can you guess where?!!

Mud, mud, glorious mud!

I went out with Muzzle and Daddy today when they went for lunch. It was lovely and sunny and I was really excited so Muzzle took me for a quick run off lead while Daddy ordered their food, so I could burn off some energy.

After they'd eaten (and Muzzle had shared her chips!) we went for a longer walk - there was mud everywhere, it was great fun!

Muzzle laughed at my muddy paws ...

We walked off the mud and I posed with my Daddy in a sunny spot

I was a good girl and retrieved and carried my toy.

I heard Muzzle tell Daddy she was really proud of me and she said I am a very good girl off lead!

I stay near to them and when I walk ahead, I wait for them (they're much slower than me!) and turn around lots to check they are still there. That's because I love them!

Woe is Minnie-Moo

This morning Muzzle took me to the vets as my eye is poorly - a bit red she said, with some "gunk" whatever that is.

I got very excited at the vets - there were lots of people waiting to meet me - well Muzzle said they were there working or had to take their own animals there, but I think they went because they heard I would be there.

I met a nice vet lady who checked my eye and then put a pointy thing up my bottom to check I wasn't too hot. She put orange stuff in my eye (which Muzzle is now wearing on her hand and clothes) and some green stuff which came out of my nose, so my drainage is ok :)

I had a local anaesthetic in my eye so the nice lady could poke around a little. That felt weird and I noticed Muzzle looking away so she didn't feel squeamish and make me worried. There was nothing in my eye but Muzzle was given some drops to put in my eye and I have to go back to the vets this weekend. The vet told Muzzle I was in good shape too - must be all that good food and the bouncing around I do!

I made some new friends in the waiting room while Daddy was paying the bill. A nice black dog that looked a bit like me and a brown dog. They were boys and seemed to like me.

Bye for now,

Poorly M-M

Water Works!

Today I went out for breakfast with Muzzle and a friend of hers. Well I had already had my breakfast but they were lazy and had theirs late. I got to share some of their food though :)

On the way to breakfast Muzzle let me offlead where two other Labs were playing. I went off to say hello but the ground gave way underneath me!

Muzzle and her friend laughed - Muzzle said it was water - I thought it was cold!

I went to say hello - and tried to join in with a game ...

Then I had a good splosh around!

These people looked a bit dry for my liking!

On the way back I played with a springer too.

I had fun jumping around ...

And did some posing too ...

Sister Act!

Today Muzzle and Dad took me to the LRSEC annual party which was great fun. I saw my Auntie Mindy, Auntie Helen and Auntie Wendy and watched my friend Wiggle receive his award for Dog of the Year (Muzzle cried!).

Muzzle entered me in two classes, including the Bonio one, where the dogs had to try to catch Bonio biscuits. I am used to catching bits of tuna cake but not big biscuits so didn't do too well at catching but I did enjoy the eating bit :)

Muzzle dressed me as Minnie Mouse for the fancy dress class - and was really pleased when I came third :-)))

Muzzle was also hoping we would meet a very special someone at the party - and we did - my sister! We've not met since we were both adopted and she's a bit bigger than me, but everyone said how similar we look.

Here we are ... spot the difference?! (apart from her not having to wear a silly outfit today!).

I liked her :)

I hope we get to see her again.

I believe I can fly ...

I decided to give it a go anyway ...

Muzzle thought I was going to take off!

(if you look closely you can see the ball near the top left of the photo!).

I can do pretty girl posing too :)

... and sit nicely waiting for Daddy to throw the ball.

Excuse the hair-do, my ears flap a bit in the wind!

A few more photos

Muzzle managed to get a few more photos of me today while we were dodging the rain.

She said it's amazing how I can look so serious and grown up in one photo ...

... and then look like such a little cute thing still a few minutes later

Muzzle said I'm stunning ...

Eight months on ...

Muzzle told me today that I am eight months old now! Wow that sounds old! Muzzle took some photos of me for my aunties to see - and anyone else who's interested.

I'm still pretttttttty! Oh so pretttttttty!

With very long legs :)

And here I am in a bit of a snooty pose with my brother ...
