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.
