Family Walk at Ennerdale

Hurro! Ludo here!

Last weekend some of Mum’s sisters visited and so we had a big family walk at Lake Ennerdale. Auntie Toni couldn’t come but Mum’s nieces and nephew brought Poppy along. Poppy is the other sheltie who looks a bit like Arran.

Grandpawents dog Rusty comed too and we met Auntie Tracey’s dog Wilbur who be a shitzu x yorkshire terrier and Auntie Tricia had Lily who a staffie x jack russel. It be a typical Cumbrian day. Not quite raining but just about to. Although it did get a bit sunnier at the end.

Here we is!

Dog bucket lists

ludobucketlist

A bucket list be sort of like a human joke thingy of stuff to do before you die… It not a funny joke, like: squeak-toys-at-Mum-but-don’t-let-her-get-them, or pretend-to-bite-Dad’s nose, but who understands people humour anyway?

Before I had any troubles with cancer mum started doing a post after reading this article: ’50 Things to do in Cumbria before you die’ and we started thinking about things that might be on a dog’s ‘life’ list, because, lots of peoples has started doing ‘bucket lists’ even though they doesn’t have a ‘reason’ to.

I guess you could call them Goals.

‘Me’ – Ludo’s 8th Birthday

I is a whole 8 years old. Mum says 8 be a very lucky number because 7 a lucky number and she always says ‘plus one more for luck.’

Since it such a special day (and we missed my birthday last year acoss of my pawrents getting married) we is going to do a lot of celebrating over the next couple of weeks. Grandma already got me a card and treat and Mum gonna take me out to pick a present tomorrow! Birthdays is very fun, they is like mini Christmasses that you all can join in with!

If you would like to join in and do helpings of the celebrations you can take part in my birthday give-away.

Since my blog not only about me, it about the place where we live (Cumbria) we would like to use my birthday to celebrate Cumbria. We have some wonderful little prizes for your peoples from one of our favourite Cumbrian companies Herdy. Plus I will pick out some treats for you too.

All you has to do is send us a picture of you appreciating where you live, maybe enhancing some scenery… like this. (Thanks to my pal Bertie for the description)

I lives in the Lake District

Or of you with something your area is famous for (for us that could be Cumberland sausage, or Herdwick sheep). You can send the pictures in to ludovanpup@live.co.uk or if it is easier, click on our facebook link over to the side there and post the photos on our page.

I will get Mum to help me post the photos over the next couple of weeks and we will pick a winner before Arran’s birthday on the 15th of May.

I is hoping Mum will let me bring some of my friends over for a party like this one too.

Shouty Seaside Sunday (at cancer)

Today, we don’t really want to post; maybe if we don’t, what we have to tell wont really be true.

Ludo’s stitches are all out! He is very pleased about that. He can resume normal life.

Today we normalled.

Today we went back to agility training and Ludo wizzed around the course, having lots of fun.

Today we went to the beach together, the sun was beaming down on us, but it wasn’t too hot. Perfect weather, really.

We didn’t take a ball and Ludo was annoyed about that. He barked accusingly at everyone else who had a ball. He tried to steal a small child’s ball from his flinger stick.

Today we just strolled and thought, smelled the seaside air and sat to watch the world go past.

We don’t know how many Today’s we have left together to enjoy these things. Our vet has recently told us it might not be as many as we would hope for, or like.

Yes, it’s that news we didn’t want to hear. The lesions and lump recently removed from Ludo’s abdomen are the same high grade mast cell tumours as he had removed in November. His prognosis is pretty bleak. Already I have found two more lesions in different places since these ones have been removed. We have promised him no more horrible things will happen at the vets.

Luckily for dogs, they don’t know or care about the future, they live in the Today. So we will keep on enjoying our Todays for as long as we have them.

But for now… will you join us just for a moment, in SHOUTING at stupid cancer?
