I know I am smart because...

Hi Mum,

I was thinking about how smart I am today.

I can understand lots of commands like 'sit' and 'down' and 'stay'.

I can 'fetch' and when I want someone to play I hold the ball in my mouth carefully so they can grab hold of it.

I can catch a ball in mid air.

If they hide a toy I can find it quickly.

When they say "Where is your toy - go find it" I can look for a toy and bring it to them.

When they say "Find Lulu", I will run upstairs to find you in your room.

When they say 'basket' I can put my toy in my toy basket

When I need to go out I know to stand by the door.

I know what to do to get treats.

See you very soon,

A Walk in the Mountains

Hi Mom,

Yesterday they put my harness on - Grandma is getting better at it now - and we got in the car. I had to sit in the back, but it was ok because I could look out of the window on both sides.

We set off and went a long way. My ears felt funny inside so I think we were going higher and higher. We stopped in a parking lot and they put my long leash on, and off we went along the trail. There were lots of interesting smells along the way and there were lots of other dogs to say hello to. They were all nice to me and I was nice back, but none of them had time to stop and play with me. Most of the other dogs didn't have leashes on, but I didn't mind having mine on. I didn't get it tangled up round trees or rocks or anything.

I had a bit of a paddle in the creek, but I am still not sure if I really like being in the water or not. It made me nice and cool, but I don't really like being wet.

We walked for a very long way, but it was quite shady so I didn't get too hot.

Grandma liked the flowers along the path and kept saying the smell of the pine trees reminded her of Menorca.

I was very tired when we got back to the car, and wen we got home I fell asleep on the floor.

This morning I had a special treat - a pig ear - oh joy oh bliss. I sat on my grey bed and worked on it til it was gone. They are so yummy. I ate it very quickly and now i don't have it any more. I hope I get another one soon.

Not long before you come home now Mum,

Looking forward to giving you real BT kisses,

My Favourite Places for a Nap II

Hi Mum,
Here are some more places where I like to take a nap.
Sometimes I just like to lie on the rug

Sometimes I like to lie on the back of the sofa. Silvey used to lie here all the time. I like it here because I can see what's going on outside through the window.

Hope you haven't forgotten about me!

BT kisses rule,

My Favourite Places for a Nap

Hi Mom,

Today I thought I would remind you of where I like to take my naps.
This is where I sit with everyone in the evenings. I like it when the cushions are piled up. Sometimes I like to get right under them. Don't I look cute and cuddly!
Sometimes I like to find a nice sunny spot on the floor like this!

Grandma put my harness on again today and I thought we might be going to the dog park again, but no, we went to the coffee shop. It's a bit boring there. There are lots of things to explore but I had to sit still all the time. It's just like being at home indoors really. Grandma says I have to learn that sometimes I just have to sit still. I found if I laid down I could wriggle along on my tummy for a little way before they noticed I was moving.

I am going to have another nap now, on the rug this time.

Hope you are having fun in Menorca,

Still have BT kisses to share,

The Dog Park

Hi Mum,
I knew something was up this morning when Grandma tried to put my harness on (she's not very good at it!).

Then they put me in the car and off we went --- to the Dog Park! Yay!

Here I am fetching a stick.

Oh no!

He musn't get my stick!

Phew! Got away with it!

It's so cool in this puddle by the water fountain!

Running with the pack

I was very good and played nice with the other dogs. When it was time to go I didn't run away and I let them put my leash back on. I got some treats too!

Hope you are having fun too!

BT kisses as ever

Today i got stuck! Grandpa took me down to where he was building the deck and tied my leash to some wood. I was following an interesting smell in the trees and got my leash all tangled up round them. He had to hold me and undo my leash and Grandma had to untangle it. I found a really interesting bone in there but, of course, as usual, I wasn't allowed to keep it :(

Sometimes Grandma doesn't hear when I bark or whine for attention cos she's thinking too hard on the computer, so today I started licking her elbow. It makes her laugh and I get attention.

I think they were going to take me to the dog park today but then there was a storm with hail stones so we didn't go after all - maybe tomorrow.

Hope you had a nice time with Nanny and Nansy.

BT Kisses again,
