Wow what a great week I’ve had……After a tiring day at Discover Dogs the next day we went on a long car journey (quite handy as it gave me a few more hours sleep) and ended up in the Peak District. The signs said Wirksworth – I can’t read but Heidi can, she’s clever. It’s always fun to go somewhere new because it has different smells and sounds. I love to explore with my nose.
The next day my luscious Labradoodle friend, Bella came to visit. She’s older than me so I could be her toyboy although she’s a bit tall for me – most dogs are when you’re only a foot tall! We all went for a lovely walk at Chatsworth House. I love it there as there’s a river, sheep, deer and kids playing football (I’m brill at football). We have to stay on the lead because we might get excited and chase the sheep or deer. I think I’d be really good at hunting the deer, after all I was bred to hunt Wild boar and a deer can’t be much different. We also sat outside the farm shop cafe whilst the hoomans had lunch. When I wasn’t asking for food – they can be so stingy with their food – we watched the cows in the field. Bella got extra excited, I think it was because they were brown like her.
We went on some great walks, up hills, across fields, through woods, it was so much fun. I may be little but with ‘4 paw drive’ I’m pretty nifty. Sissy Mum complained about her knees aching, I don’t know what her problem is. We were lucky because the sun was shining most of the time, although I did manage to find some mud to walk in. I love getting muddy and dirty but mum moans at me when I do. On one of the days I got really muddy and spoil sport Mum made me wash in a bowl before going into the house, I don’t know why I couldn’t just clean myself on the carpet.
Another day we went to see these big things called trams at the Crich Tramway Village. I tried to pretend I wasn’t scared but I was a little bit. We went for a ride on one and my Dad let me sit on his lap. Heidi was brave and sat on the floor, although she’s too big to sit on his lap anyway. Being small does have it’s benefits. I saw some tractors too and we went on a woodland walk, that was ace.
The hoomans went to a place called Haddon Hall. Heidi and I couldn’t go with them so we stayed home and slept – I looooove sleeping! Mum said that Haddon Hall had been on TV in something called Gunpowder, so I guess it’s famous. She wanted me to post these pictures she took, I let her but reminded her it was MY blog and not hers.
Another evening they left us again – I didn’t mind because it gave me more sleep time but I did give them my extra sad dog eyes when they left so they gave us a chew stick each. They said the cinema was small and quirky with sofas. I usually sleep on the floor by their feet when they are watching TV so they could have sneaked me in with them.
Oh and listen to this trick I’ve learnt………..I bark at the door to go out in the garden and then refuse to come in again until they get me a treat. It’s so funny, it works every time. I think they are starting to realise who’s boss – teeheehee 🙂
I hope you are enjoying reading my blog, please pass it on to your fur-friends to read too.
Next week I have to go to the vets, I don’t know why but I’ll let you know more about it in my next blog.
Love Radley x
