About Time Too!!

We have 2 new arrivals today. It's been a long time since we have had any new visitors to help, I think it's because Hotdog has been recovering from his overseas travels and Me has been recovering from seeing all those cyclists legs!!

So without further ado meet Geraldine Barkton and Pawline Howler. They said they are both really happy to be staying with Hotdog but are looking forward to moving onto new homes. They took full advantage of the limited sun today but are now curled up inside trying to get warm again.

Phew, Hotdog is Back!!

Hotdog has been back a couple of days but is still trying to unpack his suitcase, however he has decided he has time to squeeze in a blog about his exploits.

The day before we all flew to Switzerland we went to Legoland where Hotdog thoroughly enjoyed posing in front of the mini buildings......well he is a bit of a show off!! Even though it was not the school holidays the place was really busy and the queues were quite long.

The next day Hotdog and family jetted off to Geneva Airport. We went to stay with family in a valley just below Verbier.

This is Hotdog posing on the Balcony.

These beautiful pictures were taken at the top of Mont Fort.

The Plane journey home, the lolly is to stop Hotdog's ears popping!

Whilst we were in Switzerland we were lucky to see the tour de France end one of it's stages on the road to Verbier. Wow, we were all in awe at how fast they can cycle!! It took them roughly 20 mins to get from the bottom to the top.....that's the same as a car. The Me of Hotdog and Me wants to post one last picture, yummy cyclists.

Look at those yummy legs!! (That's the Me saying that)
The rider on the left with the black and yellow helmet is Lance Armstrong.

And last but not least we would like to say a big thank you to Anna from The Warren for re-homing Jeremy Beagle. If you are a funny bunny pop over to her shop, it's well worth a visit.

Fabien le Barkeur

Meet Fabien le Barkeur, he orange, he's grey, he's stripey....he's just cool.

He loves all things French.

He is possibly the last pup in the shop for a couple of weeks as Hotdog and Me plus family are off on our holidays to Switzerland.

Me, is very lucky, having relatives over there. This year the Tour de France is ending a stage about 20 mins away from the family home and as the partner of Me is hugely into cycling it was an opportunity not to miss. Cyclists legs mmmmmmm........

We may have 2 new arrivals to accompany us on our journey as Me's children want their own sock puppies, so once they arrive Me will post a blog welcoming them to the ever increasing pack.

And The Winner Is...................


Congratulations AI

You correctly found the mystery in Molly Barksmith although Albert Barkly does like sniffing out mysterious things to solve.

And your new family member is called Lady Pawsha of Argyll.

Thank you very much to everyone that entered this competition. All the names were totally fabulous, so good in fact I had to ask my sister's to help Hotdog and Me to come to a decision.

AI has a fantastic shop on Folksy if you want to pop along and if you have a spare 5 mins and a lovely cuppa go and read her blog.

While the Hotdog's Away......

Hotdog has finally made it to a festival after the unfortunate Doberman incident.....Dobergate! This festival is not quite Glastonbury but I am sure he will have a totally fabulous time anyway. He has gone to Hop Farm Festival.

He better stay off the cider as he gets a bit squiffy after a couple of sips.

In his absence 3 new play pals have arrived.

They are Ethel Poochston, Bertie Bassethound and Davina McCruffs. We are so pleased to have them come stay with us for awhile.
