Day 19 - Tuesday 11th November

Well I can't believe it's five days to go before I go home! This month really has flown by and I've had the time of my life here - apart from a few hiccups that we've ironed out quite successfully! I've had a really fun couple of days with Uncle Dan - I always like it when it's just us. He gives me the attention I so crave and demands very little in return! This picture is one that he took of me this morning lying on the bed. He kept reading this book and ignoring me - so I decided to join in and read the book too!

We've been for lots of walks recently - I am sure I have lost far too much weight and feel pretty much anorexic! I only get treats from Uncle Dan and don't get the scraps from dinner becuz they're always at that wretched gym! So rude! Anyway when we were going for a walk yesterday - poor Uncle Dan seemed to suddenly become ill and do something weird. He was walking slower and slower and then had to crouch down and put his head between his legs. I was very worried and hoped a few licks would do the trick. He kept breathing very fast and very loud so not sure what was going on there. He seems a bit better today though so that's okay.

When he was asleep, I did my concerned nurse impression and kept looking at him. Maybe a bit close I grant you that - because he opened his eyes at one point and jumped! Well I wanted to make sure that he didn't get poorly again! Anyhow Uncle Scotty made me jump today because he's normally out all day but suddenly appeared at the balcony door knocking! So obviously I barked and Uncle Dan came staggering out of his bedroom in a very bad mood and let him in. I think Uncle Scotty was poorly too because he didn't do much all day but just lay on the sofa and chatted to friends on Facebook.

Ooh! I forgot to say about our walk because I got distracted. Before he got poorly Uncle Dan kept laughing at me and telling me that when I walk I "prance" (whatever that means) and do a "catwalk"! So here's a video - draw your own conclusions. I think I have a rather sturdy gait actually. But can I help it if I know that I am gorgeous!?

I am hoping that the three Uncle's have got a leaving do planned for me! I am sure that the mechanics of this flat will ground to a halt after my departure! After all - who else guards the flat faithfully? Who else is the welcome party whenever the front door opens? I wonder what will be on the menu .... mmmm!
More tomorrow I hope (unless Uncle Dan is off to the gym!).

Day 17 - Sunday 9th November 2008

Well I've never known a week fly by so fast as this one! Mind you - I did try my hardest to get access to the internet but it's jealously guarded in this household. You wouldn't believe how three guys could stay glued to the screen looking at ... whatever they look at. If it's not Uncle Dan, then it's Uncle Scott and if it's not Uncle Scott then it's Uncle Barry - and Bubba certainly comes at the bottom of the pecking order in terms of internet access! That's gonna have to change - and fast. I've got webcam buddies I want to catch up with ...

So what's been happening?! Well the week started off rather badly. Still smarting from "Carpet-gate" - Uncle Dan got in one morning and let me snuggle up on his bed which was really nice. He had a rather nice duvet on. It was white (a silly colour if I say so myself) and it had sparkly sequins around the edge of it. Well I didn't chew on them. But I did get an attack of nerves because I think he was talking in his sleep or something and made me jump. So I had another "accident" similar to "Carpet-gate". We'll call this one "Kylie-gate" because Uncle Dan never stopped howling that I had de-faced his Kylie bedspread. I thought Kylie was a woman?! Anyhow ... that was all a bit awful ... again!

But the up-side has meant that I get two walks - one in the morning and a long, long one in the evening so I guess I'm the winner! I thought I had better give him something though becuz I did feel a bit ashamed so I finally gave in and do both my bits of business on the balcony. Well they've been trying for so long to make me go - I guess I owed them for the drama.

Those events aside - what else? Life has pretty much carried on as normal. Uncle Dan and Uncle Scotty still militantly go out to their "gym" and come home starving. So despite my best begging, brown-eyes tricks I haven't had a SCRAP from their dinner plates. I HATE that place. Whatever they do there and whatever it does to them - it makes them hungry. Either that or Uncle Dan is cooking less. Stingy so-and-so. I've got my own rug now to sleep on the sofa which is rather nice. Chenelle. Or something. Anyway it's very soft so that's nice. And apparantly it's not long now till Mummy comes home! Wow ... how exciting is that! I wonder if she will have changed much and I'll still recognise her ... I'm sure I will!

Until tomorrow - I've been promised we can do some more video footage soon!

Day 10 - Sunday 2nd November 2008 - "Carpet-gate"

This is just gonna be a brief entry - I'm not sure how long I'm allowed access to the computer. Yesterday I did something bad ... something unmentionable. Cross words were uttered on both sides. Uncle Dan and I expressed differences of opinions and we have since made up. I really don't wish to discuss it any further. We will henceforth refer to it as "Carpet-gate".

Today's been a bit better - it was just Uncle Dan and me so we spent time re-forging our damaged relationship. He took me out for a very long walk which was really fun. There are so many exciting smells in a big city. Well as I say, time is limited so that's all for now ... more tomorrow I hope.

Day 8 - Friday 31st October 2008

Happy Halloween!!

Well I wouldn't have even known it was Halloween to be honest but apparantly I'm told that it is. Quite what that means or who that means - who knows. I missed a day on my blog!! Oh no ... what happens now!? Uncle Dan seems to think it's a bad thing - but he's to blame for it anyhow! He went out last night and didn't come back all night! I'm used to him going to work but I'm not sure whether this was work or not - he was wearing something different. And seemed excited. So I was left in with Uncle Scotty - who is the disciplinarian I have decided. I always feel I have to behave when he's on duty!

We had a nice evening - I just sat in the hall and tried to keep small and unnoticeable. I wonder where Uncle Dan is ... anyhow. It was quite a cold night again in that lounge of theirs. Wish I could be snuggled on Uncle Dan's bed - but I'm not allowed when he's not in it. Uncle Barry got up first and left for his work in that funny old thing he wears. Then Uncle Scott got up late as usual (!!!) but while he was doing his hair Uncle Dan got back. I could tell he was in a really good mood and seemed much more cheerful than he has done for ages. We all chatted for a bit and caught up on the night - and I tried to seem like I knew what they were talking about.

Then Uncle Dan went to bed and let me snuggle up with him. It was really lovely and cosy and we slept for an hour until the postman rudely awakened us by buzzing insistently on the door. I loved what Uncle Dan did ... he pulled the cover over his head and ignored it muttering something unrepeatable! We went back to sleep again and slept very well until about 2pm when I got a bit restless and started to wonder if he would ever wake up. I tried lovingly licking his hand but he didn't seem to appreciate it - it was withdrawn under the duvet. Strange. He only woke up when the door opened and Uncle Barry got back from his work.

So we all had a bit of a conference sitting on Uncle Dan's bed chatting about very important stuff. I think Uncle Barry is going to work at that horrid Acorns place tonight. They watched a bit of TV and I must admit I was getting a bit restless - I need a walk! So I tried some gentle persuasion and then got a bit louder. In the end they gave in - Uncle Barry went to bed (the sleeping patterns of this lot are quite odd) and Uncle Dan took me out for a walk. The postman seemed to have upset him a bit because he rang a couple of people - that nice lady Lynn and Uncle Scotty and another lady I haven't heard of called Jo and spoke to them about it all. It was a real shame because he seemed so happy this morning!

Anyhow we are now back home in the warm (I went nosing into Uncle Barry's room to see what he was up to and got shouted at for waking him up ... oops) - and Uncle Dan and I are working on the blog together. I'm getting quite a good typist you know.

Until tomorrow ... Happy Halloween and safe trick or treating!!

How Cute Do I Look?!

I do have to brag a bit here - Uncle Dan caught me while I was catching forty winks ... you must admit I am a bit of a looker!!

Day 6 - Wednesday 29th October 2008

I can't believe a week has almost already gone by without Mummy! I thought it would crawl by but actually time passes by quite quickly with all the comings and goings in Flat 3 here in Birmingham. Well today was slightly different in that I wasn't woken up by any early morning departures which was rather unusual. I did surface vaguely expecting some grumpiness but nothing. Quite nice really - meant I got a lie in!

Uncle Scotty appeared about 11am-ish followed around the same time by Uncle Barry who was heading off to that hospital place in his strange uniform. I was allowed in to go and wake Uncle Dan about mid-day (disgraceful I know, but he does seem very tired lately). We all chatted for a bit and I think Uncle Dan and Uncle Scotty were trying to decide what to do with the day and where to go. They talked about a few places that I haven't heard of before and decided to go to somewhere called "Worcester".

Uncle Scotty was eager to be gone straight away but good ole Uncle Dan said to walk me first so we went for a very brisk walk around the block which was about 2 miles all in all I think! They kept talking about me losing weight ... the cheek of it .... they're not so slim themselves! So at least got to stretch my legs and have a wee-wee before they left. And what a long day it was too. They got back when it was dark and then rudely decided to go straight out to that gym-place again that they're so obsessed with.

At least when we got back, Uncle Dan and me had some fun playing. Uncle Scotty took a video of it! Here it is:

Then they ate food (I hate it when they have been to the gym and then eat cuz there's never anything left for me) and are just watching that colourful box and doing not much really. Quite dull ... they keep trying to make me go on that balcony to go for a wee-wee but I can't smell any other dogs so why should I!? I like trees and bushes ... much more "green".

Until tomorrow!

Day 5 - Tuesday 28th October 2008

Working for Treats ...

See how cruel Uncle Dan is and what he makes me go through just to get one lousy denti-stick (they're not even that nice but I haven't got the heart to tell him) ...

Watch out for the evil look I give Uncle Dan ... it's priceless! I reckon I should have my own modelling profile - I'd make thousands. Note to self ... have a word with Mother when she gets back from swanning around in the sun.
