Wiggle's 14th Birthday

Today is a very special day - Wiggle's 14th birthday.  I honestly didn't think I would be lucky enough to celebrate this special day and to be honest, there have been plenty of days when I wondered if the time to say goodbye was growing nearer.

But, thankfully, Wiggle is still here and to celebrate, I took the day off work, packed some meaty snacks and we went to a lovely park for a birthday picnic.

Wiggle helped himself to his little lunch box while I drank coffee.

Wiggle then finished the froth from my latte and got plenty of it on his nose!

It's been such a lovely day that we stayed where we were, enjoying the fine weather and having plenty of cuddles.

Words cannot describe how much I love Wiggle and I'm not ashamed to admit that I have cried a lot lately as I know time is not going to last forever for Wiggle but I'm very glad we got to spend today together.  He really is a special boy.

Wiggle - Day 3,030

We're home again after our weekend in London for the LRSE&C Dogs Party.

On Saturday, Wiggle stayed at the house while Sofy, Haggis and Cato met up with Dougal and Oban for a walk in Wimbledon.  

Here's Sofy with Oban and Dougal after they had all been for a swim:

On Sunday it was Wiggle's big day out which he thoroughly enjoyed.  He got himself comfy and watched everything going on:

Highlight of the day was when Wiggle won Golden Oldie:

Wiggle was tired after his long day but thoroughly enjoyed seeing lots of friends and raising money for the charity.

Wiggle - Day 3,015

Wiggle enjoyed our few days away last week and managed a few short walks but was happy to relax at the cottage:

Since being home again, Wiggle continues to plod along at his own pace:

He still has enough energy to come out with Sofy most days, just to the green at the end of our street:

Handsome, senior Wiggle!

Wiggle - Day 3,001

It's 4 weeks today until the fabbie Labrador Rescue Dogs Party!

This year is the 20th anniversary of the charity so we hope it's another successful fundraising day as it has been in previous years.

I didn't think Wiggle would make it to this years party but he is still plodding on and is looking forward to catching up with friends old and new.

The Dogs Party is held at the Dogs Trust in Harefield on Sunday 18th September

11am to 4pm
Harvil Road, Harefield, Uxbridge, UB9 6JW

Wiggle - Day 2,994

After a relaxing week for Wiggle, yesterday he enjoyed some pampering with a trip to Lily's Barn Dog Grooming.  Wiggle had a thorough shampoo followed by a blow dry and had a happy, contented look on his face the whole time.  

In the evening, Wiggle was still feeling good and came out for a little walk:

Sofy didn't miss out and today had a bath which meant once finished, she had to go outside and throw herself on the grass and woogle at high speed:

Wiggle - Day 2,987

After a lovely couple of weeks, its all back to normal for us now.  LucytheLab's mum Jana went home to Seattle yesterday and I am so glad she got to meet Wiggle as when she booked her flight, I honestly didn't think he would still be with me.

Before we left London earlier this week, Wiggle had some one to one time with me when we drove to Wandsworth Common for a little walk.  He enjoyed being out and about:

Last weekend we met up with some of our lovely Twitter friends at Richmond Park - Left to right Cato, Haggis, Wiggle, Star, Olive, Chico, Oban and Dougal:

Wiggle did give me a scare when he fell down and couldn't get back up but after sitting with him for a while, he was then able to walk over to the brook and watch the others playing:

Tired Wiggle:

Back at the house, Wiggle was worn out but happy to have seen his friends:

Since we got back, Wiggle has been taking things easy and this morning stayed home while Sofy and I went up to the Downs.  She still needs to run around so was happy to be out in the sunshine:

Next weekend Wiggle has an appointment with a groomer for a bath as despite being old and wobbly, he does like to take care of his personal hygiene!
