What I've been doing ....
It's been a busy 10 days or so, what with Christmas and the holidays. I haven't really had much time to tell you all about it - other than the update on my presents, trip to the river etc. More photos below of me enjoying tat river! That's one of my favourite jetties that I'm walking on - there's a sign that says 'No Entry' but I've chosen to ignore it. The Two Legged Ones say it's safe enough for me as I 'only' weigh 12kg (and, again, apparently that's an issue - it isn't you know, I carry the extra 0.5kg very well) but they can't walk out on the jetty any more which is great - I can do what I want.
Well, the biggest thing, other than Christmas (and yes, there was baked ham and I was allowed a tiny bit - and I mean tiny - and it was delicious!) was my trip to the dog-tist on 28th to have my not-so-pearly whites cleaned (ref: My Pearly Whites post below). It went ok - the dog-ter knows all about my dog-ter phobia and cage phobia etc and everyone at the four legged one clinic was very very nice to me. I was a bit groggy afterwards (I didn't even ask to go for a walk!) and the Two Legged Ones were told I would be groggy for most of the next day - humph, they snorted, as if (they had heard this before and refused to be taken in by it again). They were right - I wasn't groggy at all - at 5am the next day, I was doing circle work on the living room carpet (in my defence, there was a crow outside, taunting me - he's been taunting me for weeks and seriously, he's just asking for it - I've about had enough) and I was ready for my walk by 5.30am. And the good news is that now, my gnashers really are pearly white and providing I behave sufficiently toallow the Two Legged Ones to brush my teeth (which is going to be a very, very interesting event - I've smelt the toothpaste - blah, 'beef flavour' my left paw), I won't have to visit the dog-tist again for a long, long time.
So, that took up a few days, then there were all the trips to the river to swim and then there was a bath - I wasn't happy about this, I never am, but apparently I 'stunk'. I'm not quite sure what this means - I don't think I 'stink' and no other four legged one thinks I do. And then, of course, there was all the talk about the colour of the bath water - the She Two Legged One kept going on and on about it being 'filthy'. But, afterwards, I have to (grudgingly) admit, I did feel better and as it was New Year's Eve, I suppose there was no harm in me being white and fluffy for all of, oh, one day. I was out the next day doing Westie Rolls and trying to get rid of the girly shampoo smell!
Well, I'm off to bed now - there are more tales to tell as the He Two Legged One is on holidays and I'm going everywhere with him - today, we collected the She Two Legged One from work so I got to walk around the city and made everyone smile which was great fun. I'll bring you up to speed on my other adventures later.
Woof for now.
