A Dirty Dog is a Happy Dog

Boris is amazing, but he has one habit that isn't so amazing.
He loves to get filthy.
Every walk ends the same way, no matter how careful I am to avoid known puddles and muddy areas, he can seek out the smallest puddle to roll in.

He always looks so pleased with Himself, it's impossible to get upset, all you can do is smile and ensure there are plenty of towels in the car.

Boris has the most amazingly soft black shiny coat when it's not covered in mud and muck, so there's something to be said for mud baths, must try it out myself sometime to improve my own skin.

You can't deny his happy face, so out come the treats, which I know encourages him, but I can't deny him his enthusiasm and fun for life.

Boris is the living proof that a dirty dog is a happy dog, luckily all it takes to get him clean again is a quick brush once he's dried off and you'd never know he's a Mud Monster.

Hello it's Been a While

Hi everyone, sorry I've not been blogging properly for several months apart from the odd Silent Sunday post.

Personally I've been having a bit of a tough time of things lately, I've not blogged about it as I'm scared to open the flood gates.

The past few weeks I've been in so much pain with my Arthritis, but the worst of it is, my right hand is starting to seize up, I can hardly use it some days. It's hard to remain upbeat and carry on as normal, sometimes it easier to just sit and ignore the fact that life is passing me by.

I've done very little crafting and my craft room now resembles a dumping ground, every time I go in there it makes me feel depressed as there's a lot to do to get it back to how it was, so I get what I want and leave it for another day.

I've been doing a little knitting as and when I've been able too, I'm currently working on a jumper for myself and also one for Badger Boo. The old boy is 13 years old now and starting to feel his age, although he has lovely warm coats for out on walks, I've noticed he's started feeling the cold indoors as well. I'm not a fan of dressing dogs up and making them look stupid, but I'm pretty sure he'll appreciate a nice warm Aran jumper to wear indoors.

In Puppy News Boris is growing up fast and is getting to be quite a size now, he make Badger Boo look like the puppy.

 Boris has also been learning some tricks, this is my favourite called "I'm Shy"

At his last training session at The Company of Animals he also had a go at learning to ride on a skateboard, yes you read right a skateboard.

He sure is a clever pup.

Happy crafting and I'll be back next week I promise.
