Once again found out that videos no longer worked due to an out of date plugin and the need to pay for a licence. Abandoned that and the videos are now back up and running.

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.

Stealth Hound

Louis will try any tactic to sneak up on Smudge the cat. Here’s a picture of him using camouflage and trying to pass himself off as a white cat.

This didn’t work too well so he’s resorted now to footballing skills where he will run towards the cat, side-step at the last moment but make sure he stamps on her tail. Smudge then kicks off and it’s a surprise to see a seventeen year old cat that weighs a twentieth of her doggie room mate give him what for.

Green eyed monster

Sue and I have been very good diet wise and not had a barbecue or a sausage fest for a long time. We used to regularly cook sausages on our chimenea; especially during the winter.

So…now we are near our target weights we decided to sit out one night last week and treat ourselves to a fry up (low fat sausages of course). It was about 5 below zero; bloody cold if you ask me.

Louis wouldn’t miss out on sausages (low fat or otherwise) for anything so he decided to camp out with us.

Here’s a couple of pics of the sausages on the go:-

Snowtime like the present

We’ve had a fair bit of snow over the last day or so. I’ve been left in charge of Louis and we’ve both trudged through the snow which blows in your face no matter which way you are heading. Louis is not daft though; he drops a pace or two behind you and then hunkers in aft of his human windbreak.

Payback time comes when we’re back at home and he has to nip outside for a gypsy’s kiss. As the piccie below shows, he doesn’t hang around once the deed is wee’d.
