Once again found out that videos no longer worked due to an out of date plugin and the need to pay for a licence.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.

New rules in the house

We have been suffering from excessive “you never feed me” faces from Louis whilst we sit at the table; see Kitchen Design Flaw, plus we’ve got a health and safety issue with the floods of dribble posing a slippage danger. As such we have changed the rules.

We now put his bed by the kitchen door and he has to sit there if he us to get a treat or two. He learnt pretty fast but still cannot resist trying to sneak back in.

This is the face you get.


It’s hard work keeping to our own rules when you have that face staring at you.

Wet wet wet

Well poor Louis has seen his fair share of rain this week. He refused an afternoon walk, I think it’s because I usually put a raincoat on him which alerts him to the fact it’s pretty dismal outside. I’m off on the annual girlie shopping trip to York next week so Andy is in full control of Louis; oh my. I shouldn’t worry but hey; boys left to their own devices, say no more.

Evening routine

Well the phone blogging software seems to work so rather than wittering on about that I thought I’d describe what it’s like coming home to a waiting hound.
Usually the other two members of this household are napping when I get back but at least Louis has the decency to wake up, get up and say Hi.
As I turn off the engine his face appears at the window and you can see his tail going which sets off a rear end shimmy. I assume this means he’s pleased to see me!
When I get through the door he makes sure my face is clean and then he races off to find a toy. All the dog training programmes and books say you should ignore your dog. I can see where they are coming from but I like the way we behave; I’m sure Louis does too.

Well, now it’s my turn

I’m trying some other software to see if it’s easier to post a blog entry rather than use the phone’s web browser.
This is wordmobi. Only problem so far is that the page goes to pot when you go to landscape mode.
Louis is asleep and Suzy continues to pester me with questions about the phone.
