#SkippersSussexSnooter

Hello there my friends and welcome back to our blog....we have a little news for you...

The week did not start well for Miss Lola, who had to be bathed...she hates the bath...

...she eventually settled on her old cushion which we had covered in a bath mat so she could dry in front of the fire....I don't think she's speaking to me...

....the following day I took her out for a walk to cheer her up....

....we found some sticks to chase...but she doesn't chase sticks....

...she likes to hang around at the back snootering.....

....we saw some exciting news posted up at Epsom Downs...the very famous racecourse we live close to..Terrier Racing!....I may enter Miss Lola...and I could be her jockey....

...on Sunday we had a very exciting tweet-up with some pals from Twitter....we gathered in a car park in the beautiful Ashdown Forest which is about an hour from BT HQ...

...we even had some non-tweeting pals there too...this is Mr Bruno....

...our good friend Mr Skipper had organised it...I think we were about 15 dogs or so in total....14 border terriers and Mr Spot the Jack Russell....

...lots of zooming and snootering...we did not take Miss Lola because sometimes she gets a bit fighty with other lady BTs....

...this is Mr Rolo...our senior member...



....Mr Toddy..our junior member I think....

...Mr Spot...a very gentle soul...

...Mr Bruno again at the pub...

...we walked for miles and had to revive ourselves at the pub...(its just a Coke!)...

if you click HERE you can see a small movie of the fun we had...


....we are very lucky to live in a such a beautiful place...look at where the typist and I got to on our bike on Sunday...!

...pawsome....

You ca read some really great blogs about the #SkippersSussexSnooter by Mr Skipper HERE and Mr Rolo HERE....well worth a look ..but BE WARNED...they contain uncensored pics of the typist...only for the strong-of-stomach....

Woof...Clapton....

Another week at HQ

Hello my friends...are you well?...Really?....good..

....we have been suffering here at Bt HQ with the great British weather...its been cold and wet...and then just wet....and then cold...and then wet again...its very tiring for a dog...Miss Lola has been quite overcome by it.....

..I mean, look at this....how is a dog to cope with damp paws on a daily basis?....

.....our very good friend Sir Jack Spratticus sent us this lovely draft excluder....*whisper* I will let you in on a little secret...this was supposed to be a Christmas present for mum but the typist put it in a cupboard and forgot to give it to her! Pfffft....he remembered last week....and its very good at keeping the cold winds out of the kitchen...

...this is Sir Jack...he really is the most handsome of terriers....look into this eyes! Who could resist him?...

....Miss Lola opted for comfort from the weather by the fire....she has to toast every inch of herself of an evening....

....although she is protected by quite a thick layer of furs at the moment...ahem...

....meanwhile up in London the typist is having a different experience altogether...this is the view from his window...it looks positively tropical doesn't it?....

...so tropical in fact that he met this little fellow on the underground last week?...all the way from Brazil, via Rome to London...he was on his way to the river to meet his public and pose for photos....he seemed to quite like the typist for some reason...perhaps he smells like the jungle...

...meanwhile back at HQ, Miss Lola had resorted to her coat....

....and we even had our own Monster Blizzard!....1cm of snow which lasted until lunchtime!...

....we persuaded the typist to work from home one day to keep us company....this is us "working from home"....

....I don't know...what's a dog to do?....we are off skiing in a couple of weeks...I suppose we will have a different view of the snow and the cold then...
Woof...Clapton....brrrrr

Tis the season to be...BUSY!

HELLO MY FRIENDS...MY NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION IS TO BLOG MORE!! Hurrah...as some of you might be saying...

...at the end of last year there was some dashing about....we went to Dundee in Scotland...I took advantage of all the facilities at the hotel...

....but it was mostly work....*yaaawn*...

....Mis Lola stayed at home working on her tricks...

....a quick trip to Dubai....I got the big bed....

....but that was all hotels and airports....

....Miss Lola waited patiently at home....

....before Christmas we got some lovely cards from the doggies that we sponsor for Dogs Trust....

....some lovely pal sent me these presents as part of the Secret Santa we played on Twitter...

...and our lovely friend Miss Kirsty sent us a stocking each...!...

...and even Miss Lola got a present too...

...Cousin Tilly visited....unlucky furs got jailed after getting TOO muddy on a walk....

...we did plenty of cycling over the Christmas break...we sent the "King of the Mountains" out to keep the typist company on his jaunts....

...Miss Lola waited patiently at home for us to return....

...and waited...

...and waited....

...on New Years Day we went to see Grandma in Derbyshire...

...of course we found it very difficult to settle in...

....Miss Lola helped everyone open their presents...

...Cousin Lily came to see us...

...the Colonel and I had to celebrate with our pals on Twitter when border terrier Ginny was found again having been missing for almost 12 whole months...HURRAH!....we never gave up hope...

...Miss Lola was very proud of dedding a rat...even if it was a cat nip rat....

...it was grim up north!...

...an exhausting Christmas and new year all round!!...
