Dog on Wheels

Today J1 received a pawsome gift from Buster's mum. It's a CD by Belle & Sebastian called "Dog on Wheels". J1 has actually seen this band live a long time ago, but didn't have the CD, so she was delighted! As for me, well I think you can have enough of a good thing. I preferred it when the dogs on wheels lived in a cupboard and didn't try and take over my blog.

Anyway, here's a video of the title song, "Dog on Wheels". It does feature a few toys near the end. If you aren't tired of them by now.

My First Cuz (and a faulty lobster)

The other day I received an absolutely pawsome parcel from my pals, Agatha & Archie. I could hardly believe my eyes when I opened it for it contained not one, but TWO cuz toys. I've had cuz-envy for quite some time as I keep reading about them on lots of US dogblogs. You may not know that as well as being treat-deprived here in the UK, we're also cuz-deprived!

They also sent a lovely lobster stuffie, but I think it must have been faulty or something because I'd barely glanced at it and it sort of 'sploded right in my face!

Now I thought the cuz might be a bit of a challenge and at first I had a few problems as it got so wet and slimy that it kept shooting out of my mouth and across the floor. Anyway, after studying it carefully I decided to go for its weak spot. I'm afraid there was no escape for Mr cuz because its feet lasted about 1 minute. J1 had to pick up the pieces quickly cos she didn't want me to swallow any of them.

Next I wanted to destroy the squeaker. That was quite straightforward; I just punctured it with my giant gnashers. You should have heard him squeal for mercy!

At this point J1 was a bit of a spoilsport and sent it to toy heaven cos I have a bit of a penchant for all things rubbery.

I nearly forgot to mention that there was also a special note inside the parcel just for me. I won't divulge the contents because a gentleman dog never tells. Needless to say I shall treasure it.

Meanwhile the Dino Cuz lives to fight another day. I'm saving him for a special occasion. Thank you so much Agatha & Archie, I had a pawsome time destroying (ahem) I mean, playing with these toys.

Blue's visit to see ME

I know that some of you have already seen from Blue's blog that she came to visit ME (not J1) on Saturday. Well, you know she just couldn't get enough of her Jackson fix so she came round again today. She bought me some yummy M&S treats and for some reason she even bought J1 some lovely presents too. I don't know why because she was MY guest and I'm sure J1 didn't deserve it! After all, it's not J1's blog is it? And the icing on the cake was that she even let me drink the dregs out of her tea cup! Ah, the perfect houseguest!

Now as you know I don't generally allow photos of humans on my blog. But because it's Blue I granted her a special dispensation!

The reason I'm looking a bit shifty is because I'm not usually allowed on the sofa. Oops, don't tell J2!

The Mother Lode

Here in the UK us dogs are treat-deprived. OK, we have the usual boring biscuits and stuff, but we don't get anywhere near as much exciting junk as our US pals. I'm always drooling when I read about other dog bloggers and their bully sticks and beef tendons and back straps. Hey, I didn't even know what a back strap was!

So J1 ordered me a shedload of stuff from one of the few US websites willing to ship a whole heap of dog treats over to the UK. After a tortuously long delay the parcel arrived yesterday. Here it is - The Mother Lode!

I'd already started unpacking in this photo...

I think I might be busy for quite some time...
