So Mum might have accidentally deleted the last post about her birthday because whilst we were trying to do it on her new Ipad it made two copies and she deleted the non-published one. We will has to try again soon but we did get your comments.
For now I wanted to show you something else. My Grandpaw has retired and other than looking after me he doesn’t do very much by way of a pass time, although he is very fond of watching the Where’s-the-remote box. Mum and Grandmaw like to try and get him to do things like get exercise and fresh air and has mental stimulation. (Mum says when you has a dog sometimes you can leak doggy things into other areas of your life). Over the years Mum and Grandmaw has got Grandpaw lots of ‘hobbies’ that he thinks he might like to do. He used to like fishing, but he give that up many years ago and now just likes to watch others fish on the box.
He also used to like taking photos, gardening and keeping koi fish in a big pond. When Grandpawents retired and moved into their park home up in the lake district they downsized and only has a tiny garden now so he casnot do that. Mum got him a stamp collecting kit once as he always talks about how he used to collect stamps as a boy, he likes to look at them and he keeps stamps from my overseas pals crisp mas cards (thank you!), but it not require any outsideness. He got himself a big stunt kite which he used a few times but then gived it away to someone he didn’t even know well (Grandpaw has quite a habit of giving away things he shouldn’t to people he doesn’t know very well… like a car once he apposed to give to Mum). Then he has a remote control airplane and a helicopter (TNP has the helicopter now) and so on…
This year Grandpaw thought he might like a camera for Crispmas, a fancy SLR one like he used to have before he gived it away. Mum and Grandmaw thought very hard about it and decided, given Grandpaws track record a normal digital camera (that looks like an SLR) might be best. Grandpaw was very happy. But he hasn’t used it yet!
So Mum decided because we didn’t get any snow and it be a nice day Grandpaw should come on a nice walk with us. We didn’t get so far as we should have but at least he got out the house! You may have noticed that I tend to do things with Mum and Grandpaw a lot and some people think I hasn’t got a Grandmaw cos she doesn’t come. But this just cos Mum likes to try and drag Grandpaw out the house and not be a hermit and Grandmaw goes places with her friends and goes to work but if anyone asks Grandpaw to do things, he just grumbles. He really likes it when we DO go outside.
So with all that lots of ado, here Some pics of me, by Grandpaw. (oh and a couple other things, we walked along the golf course)
