We are not amused

If there’s one thing I cannot stand it’s the joy the Humans get from making US look like THEM. Have they no idea just how lame they look at the Christmas dinner table with ill-fitting paper hats perched on their heads. The racket they make

Life is good

Who knew 2020 would be the best year of a dog’s life! The Humans stayed Home every day and every evening!  It was WONDERFUL. Especially for my dim brother Baxter who is a real Mummy’s Boy and is now totally out of howling practice (pitiful

Puppy love

Dim Brother Baxter has to be the soppiest dog in the Village. If you want to know where Baxter is, look for My Human (MH). I’ve seen him. He’ll follow her outside to the washing line and pretend he’s on other business. The minute she’s back

A nose on four legs

So My Human (MH) says that it's my nose that gets me into trouble. MH spent a panting hot Stanford weekend planting trees to make shade for us in a few years time. Dim Brother Baxter and I watched closely as she added humming manure and
