Wiggle - Day 1,564

Wiggle and Sofy have had a busy day today, including a fun walk up at Maude Heath:

Ball on a Rope was toy of the day:

And it was a popular today - resulting in a game of tuggy:

Always the gentleman, Wiggle let go so Sofy could boing around with the ball:

"Can you throw the ball for me now, please?":

Wiggle decided he wanted to be on the other side of the gate:

In the next field, ready to run for the ball:

Wiggle was quickest - or maybe nearest?

All Sofy could do was follow Wiggle and the ball:

Wiggle was looking pleased with himself:

Handsome boy:

Sweet Sofy:

Wiggle was running with the ball, minding his own business...... :

.. then Sofy went for a low to the ground dive:

But Sofy wasn't fast enough and Wiggle kept on running!

And kept on going, into the cornfield!

Tall corn!

As we were coming to the end of our walk, Wiggle and Sofy found some mud.  Sofy went first:

Then Wiggle got his paws muddy too:

Today its all back to normal for Wiggle - no birthday treats, no little birthday cake, just lots of sleeping and catching up on rest after his exciting day yesterday:

Happy 10th Birthday Wiggle!

Wiggle has been celebrating his 10th birthday - he's had nommy pilchards in tomato sauce with his kibble, a fun walk in the field with lots of play time, chasing after his ball.

And this evening, his very own little birthday cake! 

Happy 10th Birthday my wonderful, bestest boy xx

Wiggle - Day 1,560

We had very heavy rain and thunder storms today but this evening, the rain had turned to drizzle so we walked in the field:

Wiggle was ready to play with his tennis ball:

A break in play for some time spent chewing on the damp grass:

Sofy was pleased to find some muddy water to splash in:

Wiggle - Day 1,557

It's been a miserable, dreary, rainy day here so Wiggle decided the best plan was to go to bed and relax:

Meanwhile, Sofy was curled up on the sofa, the ouchie on her nose still looking pink, but healing nicely:

The rain eased for a while earlier so we had a walk in the field, Wiggle and Sofy did lots of sniffing and trundling about while I picked blackberries and now, home again, they've both gone back to bed!

Wiggle - Day 1,554

Sofy has an ouchie!

I don't know how she's done it, but Sofy has scraped the skin on her nose.  I suspect she's probably been putting her nose somewhere where she shouldn't have, but with a dollop of Sudocreme and healing treats, I'm sure her nose will be back to its lovely little self soon...

Wiggle - Day 1,553

At the weekend, when we saw Wiggle's Twitter pal Dougal_the_Lab, his humans very kindly gave us some dog cookies for Wiggle and Sofy to try.

The cheesey cookies were all eaten at the LRSE&C Dogs Party at the weekend, but today, they got to sample these:

Nommy banana & honey!

Wiggle was very pleased to try one of the tasty looking treats:

While Sofy was just willing me to stop taking photo's and start passing the cookies her way!

Wiggle and Sofy like to think of themselves as Labs of Discerning Taste and give the cookies the paws up!

Wiggle's Day at the LRSE&C Dogs Party

We've had a great day at the LRSE&C Dogs Party.  Mindy and I were there early to get the games registration stall setup and before long, lots of people and their dogs had arrived.

Wiggle made lots of new friends and was taken into the "Musical Mats" - he's in the middle:

Unfortunately Wiggle was more interested in sniffing out the smells instead of finding a mat when the music stopped!

Some of the stalls:

Lovely old Berkely won Musical Mats:

Wiggle was getting plenty of walks by willing volunteers (note how he is still sniffing!):

Happy party dog:

There will young Labbie's at the party:

And older Labbies, like the very handsome Bosun:

Wiggle met up with his pal Dougal:

And also gorgeous Max, another lovely Black Lab with skin problems:

Wiggle spent some time meeting and greeting, sitting by his information board:

And one of the last classes was Fancy Dress.  Wiggle wore his backpack to dress up as "Wiggle, Out & About".  He won a rosette for 2nd place!

Wiggle - Day 1,549

We're in London!  We drove up yesterday afternoon and this morning, we had a sunny walk on Tooting Bec Common.  Toby was a happy Labbie:
Beenz was trundling along at his own pace:

Wiggle took himself off on his own, carrying his tennis ball:

All four:

Playing fetch in the sunshine:

Four happy dogs, after a fun walk:

This afternoon, Mindy and I left the dogs at the house, resting and went riding in Richmond Park.  Mindy on the left on PC and me on the right, on Cleo:

After a great day for dogs and human, we're going to have a relaxing evening before tomorrow's LRSE&C Dogs Party.
