Found out that videos no longer worked due to an out of date plugin. Sorted out a new one and the videos are now back up and running. This gave us the opportunity to laugh at the old boy. After all he was 8 on the 27th December!

We've added an extra chart showing Louis' weight against how many weeks old; makes it easier to read and compare.

Some interesting Linnaean dog terminology.

We’re in the middle of a bit of a heatwave over here in the UK now. Louis must come from Rhodesian stock with air-conditioned kennels as he’s nothing short of useless in weather like this.

He still wants to play tug but steadfastfully refuses to go for a walk if the temperature is too high. First off he runs off to his sofa, raises a paw and gives you the most pathetic look. If you can entice him out with a treat then a couple of hundred yards down the road he raises his paw again and does his impersonation of Androcles & The Lion. A paw inspection reveals nothing but you err on the side of caution and turn round and then the little bugger practically drags you back home.

He does spend a lot of the time in this weather lying down and here’s a good picture of a rare moment when he has chosen to lie down alongside one of his bipeds. Normally he operates a biped exclusion zone of a few yards – crossing this results in a huffy look from Louis and his relocation to somewhere less crowded.

I would add that it wasn’t me that sneaked into his exclusion zone; it was the other way around. Like a lot of sovereign states in this world Louis has one rule for him and another for the rest when it comes to territorial boundaries.
