I’ve had fun sorting out photographs that make me happy because they hold special memories. I’ve used photographs that I haven’t used before. They’re not the best photographs you’ve seen because I had to rely on the bipeds to take them! Most of the photos are of special days out that I’ve enjoyed with the bipeds, but I’m going to start with a couple from the cats. It makes me smile to see them happy!
This is his fluffiness, Mulberry. He always looks cute, but I think he looks especially sweet enjoying some sunshine on the terrace. He’s often to be found showing off his fluffy tummy, as he loves it when the bipeds tickle it for him. In this photo his back legs are sprawled out and his tail is so fluffy that it’s hiding one of them.
This is Pippin, looking very relaxed. We’d had a few days of wind and rain, so he was really happy to find a sheltered spot on the terrace in the sun. When he exposes his tummy, he’s sending the mixed signals that cats often send. It means something like this – I’m so relaxed that I trust you with my soft tummy, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that I want you to touch it!
Pippin says that the bipeds invaded his privacy by taking that picture, so I’ve given him a fig leaf. But it’s tricky to please a cat – he says I should have used a larger leaf.
I’m having a fantastic game of chase in this picture. I’m running so quickly that my ears are flapping like Dumbo’s. My legs are moving so fast that they’re a blur, but you can’t see them because of the tall stubble in the field.
We were out for the day with relations that were staying with us. I had a great time! We had stopped for a picnic where there was a wall for the bipeds to sit on.
I can often be seen resting like this while my bipeds take a break and perch on a convenient wall or rock. That is my favourite folding bowl by my paw and those are my bipeds’ legs behind me.
My bipeds had taken a break on a long walk to look at some old buildings. I was guarding their rucksacks (backpacks) for them – the bags couldn’t be safer!
That plant isn’t growing out of me – my thick, winter coat has spread around it so that it looks as though it is!
The bipeds were being silly and sitting in the sun, so I found the nearest shady spot to rest in. I thought I’d try for the longest tongue contest while I cooled down!
One of my favourite things to do is to walk up a mountain with my bipeds to find the snow. On this particular occasion, this was the first patch of snow we found. I did the sensible thing and flopped down in it and started to eat it. My bipeds were laughing and telling me to “come on” as we’d soon find lots more, but I was reluctant to move!
What can I say? Mounds of fresh poo. A biped on the other end of the lead briefly distracted by something that only a biped could find interesting. Chances like that don’t come along too often! Sometimes a dog’s gotta do what a dog’s gotta do.
