Thoughts from the Birthday Pooch!

Tasty chicken foot I picked up in Portugal

Hello everyone!

As it’s me birthday today Mum and Dad have finally let me have a go at writing one of these blog post things – I normally sleep while they write them, well it can be soooo boring.

As I’m not too good with typing – I struggle as I don’t have thumbs for the space bar – I’ve decided to dig out some of my fave pics from the past year.

If you enjoy them please send me gravy bones as I love ’em!

I like to help Mum and Dad out where I can with my vast knowledge of Europe
Warming up and drying off after a wash – I like five star treatment from Mum and Dad
So glad that chariot thing was left in Morocco – I hated it!
When the tyre blew up in Spain I thought I was a gonner – I ended up under Dad’s feet by the pedals, a tad dazed
Sometimes a walk in the rain is no fun – we were in the Picos mountains here and I was so cold I was shivering even with my coat on
Here I am on a sunny day in the Picos mountains, see how close I got to the picnic bag!
It was sooo windy at Finsterra in Portugal that my lips were flapping
A nice beach in Nazares, Portugal, but I didn’t catch one bird :(

I had a great Christmas with everyone in Portugal. Mum and Dad got me a bone, we had a BBQ (I snaffled some food) and we went to the beach – couldn’t get any better!
Me and my mate Snoopy have a plan to gang up on that Charlie Brown
How big and mean do I look here?
We had a lovely week in a villa at the start of the year, I helped collect wood for the fire
He he – Poor Mum was so thirsty in the Moroccan desert, but I had the water!
I love a bit of fish and this one was fresh from the sea at the port in Essouria in Morocco – I didn’t have to pay for it either!
I loved Morocco, there was so much tasty food. Here I am munching on a huge crab leg – good job they never got a photo of me eating all that camel poo!
Don’t know why Mum and Dad insist on taking me to high places, I hate them. Rhonda was pretty but I was so scared.
It was great to see Grandma and Granddad in Benidorm, I got lots of treats and spoiled rotten!
My first stay in a hotel was in France when Dave was being repaired. I had a toasty shower and furred the room up big style!
My poor bits were freezing!
Here we all are waiting on the mountain for the bikes to go past, I had a great view from Dave’s dashboard
Here’s me at the Giro d’Italia with World Champion Mark Cavendish – I move in the best circles!
I don’t get swimming, I don’t like it, but Dad keeps making me do it – why?
We visited the Plitvice Lakes in Croatia, they were beautiful and I got carried around the whole day as the walkways and my paws didn’t go well together!
I got to stay out late a few nights, here I am partying in Split for Dad’s 40th Birthday
It was so hot in Croatia, Mum insisted on putting a bag of ice on me….
…but Dad kept getting me wet instead!
