Dear mumma


Dear Mumma,

Today resembles a very special day. A day where all four legged creatures should acknowledge the greatestness of their masters! 

Today is a day I would like to tell you how much you mean to me and how very much I love you. I know I let you down last year on Mother's Day and missed telling you how wonderful you are, and more importantly I missed it at a time when you needed to hear it most. And I am truly sorry for that and I promise, paw on heart, that I will never forget again! 

So, where do I begin? Let's start with the amazing amount of love you give to me. I often think of myself as one lucky pup! Had you not chosen me the day you did, out of all those puppies, who knows where I would have ended up. What I do know is that I wouldn't have ended up with such a loyal, dedicated, loving human being as my mum.

I know I annoy you at times and make you mad, but I don't reallllyyyy do it on purpose. But I want you to know that I appreciate everything you do for me. Ok, maybe not everything, I could really do without that weekly bath. But I'm never going to win that battle. 

I am so thankful for the delicious food you prepare for me every week, even when you are tired. I want to thank you for the daily walks I receive, the car rides, the belly scratches and of course the amazing cuddles you give me. And let's
Not forget the beach trips I've had this summer!! Thank you for turning me into a surf dog and making me realize the water isn't as scary as I thought. Even when I got dumped by a wave that time I body surfed into shore, I still loved every minute of it and can't wait for next summer! 

I also feel today is a great day to tell all the ladies in my life how much they mean to me! Nanny Deb, thanks for spending every Wednesday with me and looking after me
When mummy goes away. I love following you around the house and running circles around everyone the minute I step foot into your house! Thank you for the massive walks also. I'll be honest, some days they are harder than others, but for the most part I love them! There is also nothing like a nanny's cuddle! Love you Nanny Deb. 

Grandma Joan, thank you for all my pats and for sneaking me treats! I certainly know who to go to when it comes to food and you never let me down. Even when you know my mummy will growl at us! Love you Grandma Joan. 

So mum, I just wanted you to know that I love you very much and am very grateful for everything that you do for me. I hope you have a lovely Mother's Day and I'll be sure to give you plenty of tail wags and cuddles.

Love you to the moon and back. And then some.

Your Teddy Bear xo

My Easter Emergency


Ahhhh Easter! The time of year when humans go crazy and over indulge in chocolate and us poor four legged friends are left smelling the sweetness through empty wrappers! 

I've certainly had my share of chocolate indulged moment a few years ago when I ate my nanny's Christmas present - a delicious box of maltesers! Let's just say it was a good idea at the time, but I was incredibly sick for a few days after that! And you'd think I'd learn my lesson from that experience right? WRONG!

I had spent the weekend seeing all these yummy treats but not being allowed to eat any of them, no matter how hard I begged for them. My mum did receive a little stuffed toy which I quickly claimed as my own. But then On Easter Monday, my family decided to step out of the house for a little bit. 

It wasn't long before I sniffed out a big chocolate egg that was sitting on the coffee table! Oh yum! So I attacked it as best as I could! But given the size of it, I couldn't bring myself to finish it off. 

Then my family arrived home and I knew I was in trouble. I ran and hid under the dining table straight away! I knew my mum would be really mad with me. My little belly was pretty swollen and I didn't feel all that great! 

After making some calls, my mum eventually put me in the car and took me to the dreaded doggie hospital. It was awful! They made me throw up all the yummy chocolate I had just eaten, then they fed me this horrible black charcoal stuff! The end result was me leaving with a very very black face but feeling a lot better! I was back to my normal self in no time!

What's the morale of the story?? Don't underestimate my sneakiness. If you leave food around, I will find it and I will eat it! 

Happy eating dudes! Peace out.
