Evening Cuddles

It’s about time I published something short and sweet, and Wednesday seems to be the best day for it… After all, it’s Wordless Wednesday, remember?

So here are a couple of pictures of my two kids chilling on the sofa one cool, rainy and uneventful evening.

There wasn’t anything special about that evening, but watching Brianna play on her DS with George cuddled up in her arms filled my heart with joy. Once again, it was a good reminder that it’s the little things that can make us the happiest.

A Quiet Morning in the Run Up to Christmas

Today I left the kids alone in the living-room, while I went about the house sorting out a few things. Here is how I found them when I returned:

The twinkling of the Christmas tree and my two kids cuddled up together in an armchair, reading a book – to me, this is the perfect image of a quiet family day in the run up to Christmas…

The Next Generation of Toys Has Arrived

OK, I’ve finally returned home from my little holiday, and I didn’t come empty-handed. Because I was told George had been a good boy for his dad, I brought him a little present. A very squeaky, rubbery present which filled the whippet with excitement and made him extremely happy: a big, bendy chicken, perfect for tugging…

… munching …

…and doing silly tricks with:

So far, we haven’t had the chance to play with the chicken too much, because George is fascinated with the squeak located inside the toy and doesn’t want to let go of it. He just carries it around the house, from one place to another, munching on its bottom. Silly boy…

Luckily for George, his dad also had the inspiration to buy him a new tug toy (the yellow one you can see in picture no. 2), so rough playing is still on the cards.

So, it looks like we’re covered. No more dying toys for a while. The next generation has arrived. I only hope they make it until Christmas.

Sad Prisoner…

How sad can a whippet look?

I’ll let you judge for yourselves:

Note: If you’ve noticed that we haven’t been very active for the past week, don’t worry. Everything is fine. We’re just taking a break from the computer and the Internet, and will be back in action by the end of the week. Until then, happy blogging and don’t be shy with the comments. We’ll reply to all of them when we get back 😉

George’s Range of Dummies for Dogs

I’m sure that those of you who have been our friends for a while already know that George is a complete baby. If you’re a new friend, then trust me, George is a baby. Whilst other dogs take cuddle toys and soft blankets to bed with them, my ‘original’ whippet has chosen to create his own range of dummies – are they called ‘pacifiers’ in the US? – to soothe his sleep. OK, when I say ‘create’, I don’t mean it literally, because George has no hands. What he did was source them (i.e. choose them from the pet lady’s basket at the market) and slightly alter their intended use.

But that’s enough build-up, here’s some photographic evidence.

The Summer Range – created especially for those snoozy afternoons in the garden, when you’re hot, are feeling lazy and can’t even be bothered to take off your harness after a lunch-time walk.

The Winter Range – a lighter design that you can take indoors with you, for a lie in on your humans’ soft, warm duvet.

George knows his range of dummies is quite limited at the moment. But, being a dedicated entrepreneur, he is working relentlessly, day and night, to develop new items:

View From The Other Side Of The Armchair

This is what you end up looking at for most of the day if you’ve got a whippet…

http://mylittledog,wordpress.com/

I wonder who that might be...!?!

Even when you change the location of the armchair, the view will remain pretty much the same:

Put that camera down, mum, then come and rub my belly! Pleaaaase...

George’s Sand Holiday – Part 2

It’s time for the second (and last) instalment of our seaside holiday tales. So, what else did we do when we weren’t digging? Not much…

George took us for a sunrise walk on the beach at 6 am every morning. So much for having a lie in whilst on holiday…

https://mylittledog.wordpress.com.

Come on, dad, hurry up!

https://mylittledog.wordpress.com/

Isn't it beautiful?

Brianna took us to the fair at 8 pm every evening, and made us go on everything. Her dad did not escape the bumper cars, whilst I had to go up and down on a giant slide a million times, tucked in a piece of old rug which Brianna poetically called ‘Aladdin’s carpet’. So much for having a rest on holiday…

https://mylittledog.wordpress.com/

Down the monster slide she goes, tucked inside her Aladdin carpet...

She also spent a few pounds in the amusements, winning herself a toy ice-cream van – which apparently she’d always wanted and really needed! – at the 2 p machines…

Ice-cream, anyone?

…. whilst I busied myself around the trinket, art and gift shops, looking for treasures and bargains. As a result, three geckos are now crawling up our living-room wall. They took forever to put up, but aren’t they cute?

https://mylittledog.wordpress.com/

Our three little cuties...

We also had a lot of ice-cream and a couple of barbecues, plus a few hours reading whilst sitting around the tent. Yes, when we eventually reached the limit of exhaustion, we forced the kids to sit quietly for a bit…

https://mylittledog.wordpress.com/

Brianna, how long do you think we've got to lie here for?

We didn’t do much else but, before I end the post, I’d like to thank the weather gods for being so generous and spoiling us with good, dry weather so that we could do everything we wanted.

With all the camping gear packed away, I can’t help dreaming of next summer…
