Six naughty months old

I got a surprise for my half birthday! Someone left me a special treat and a card in MY letterbox! I ate both the treat AND the card, they were delicious. I don't know who it was, but I'm certain it was not Bodger. It might have been Finn, or maybe is a mystery really. Anyway - thanks to whoever it was!

The S's didn't get me anything at all. Instead, they spent all weekend chasing me around trying to squeeze ointment into my EYES. I had been a bit overexcited on a walk and had stuck my whole face into some sand whilst digging a really good hole. I got sand in my eyes which scratched them and made them itchy and guess what happened next.......I HAD TO GO TO THE VETS!

My eyes are better now, but I really did not appreciate that ointment. I have learned to run very fast when I see the ointment coming, just like I do when I smell that flea stuff. The S's think they are being clever; they get the ointment when they think I am not looking (but I am always looking) then they hide it behind their backs, and try and sneak  up on me. I watch them from the corner of my eye, and when they get near -I RUN!

The best thing about the scratchy eyes was that I did not have to go to OBEDIENCE on Sunday. I like going to obedience because all my friends are there; Kay, Gracie, Ringo - and there are things to run and jump on, but I don't like DOING obedience. I don't even like the word.

My friend Oscar came round on Sunday for a BBQ. I am now BIGGER than he is. He can walk underneath me -he is a bit of a 'shortarse' actually (though I didn't say that to him of course). I let him have one of my pig's ears during his visit (I was not 'romancing' him, just being a good host). When I had finished my pig's ear, I went to see how he was getting on with his and he showed me his teeth! I was not trying to steal it from him, I was just looking at it. I don't know why he is so suspicious.

At home I have been destroying a lot of stuff. I am 'in disgrace'. I don't mind it. When I am 'in disgrace' I have to sit outside. It's good there, you get some peace and quiet and can sit on the back deck, contemplating life and scowling at Sarah through the window. Here is some of the damage I did!


  1. Happy six months Fozzie. Good effort with the chewing matie.

  6. Good work on the chewed stuff! You do us Airedales proud.
    Yeah, don't let 'em get ya, with that ointment stuff, or flea stuff or any stuff at all. You could also try hiding under the table and then run th eother way as they are leaning down to get ya. Hours of fun...
