What a tiring day!

The weather has been really lovely here today so we went for a really loooooooong walk in the woods this morning. The bluebells aren't out yet but there are squillions of dead leaves and they make lovely rustly sounds when you run through them.

We walked round to get to the car - I don't like going in the car and when I saw it I plonked my botty on the ground and thought "No way - it's Friday and there's the car", the last two Fridays we've gone out in the car and I ended up at the vets. There was no way I wanted to go again today. Well I did walk to the car eventually but I made Mom and Dad wait for me! Anyway, we turned left out of the road instead of right so I knew it wasn't the vets.

It took ten minutes to drive to the woods (oh goody - not enough time to be sick!) then five minutes walk and there we were. Acres and acres for me to run and sniff, I didn't meet any dogs today, it was just us. I also had a paddle in the stream and had a lovely drink from it, it was nice and cool and tasted lovely. Silly Mom and Dad didn't take the camera, I'll tell them to take it next time.

We walked in the woods for about 45 minutes then started to walk back. On the last little bit where the path joins the lane, guess what I did? Bet you can't! I saw some horse poo and tasted it - ha ha, Mom said I was a dirty girl. Then as we walked down the lane I went on the grass verge and found a sticky dog poo and wiped my face in it. The humans weren't too please about that I can tell you! Mom said "Bath for you when we get home" and she meant it too!

So I had a bath, was quite good being washed, but I don't really like the hairdryer so played up a bit then. After I was dried I was really really pooped so I jumped up on my special little bed that goes on the sofa and had a really big snoozle in the sun.

Hey, did you see my operation scar? It's one week since my stitches came out and two and a half weeks since my operation. It's looking quite neat don't you think? Here's a closer photo.

If you clicky on the photo it makes it bigger and you can see better. Do you like my spotty tummy?

We went for a walk on the beach tonight, there was a sea mist so it was a bit cold and you couldn't see very far. We were out for 45 minutes and it was dark when we got back.

I've had a busy day and I'm tired now so I think I might go to bed.

Night night, licky kisses (I don't smell of horse poo now!).

Woo hoo! I've had my stitches out!

I had to go back to the vets yesterday, I really didn't want to go in there but I'm glad I did as I had my stitches out. It didn't hurt and I feel so much better now 'cos they were a bit tight. I still have stitches inside my tummy but they will dissolve. Wanna see my tummy?

Can you see where the stitches were? Mom asked the vet if I could run around again now and she said yes, even at 90mph on the beach - yay! She said I could even skateboard if I wanted to - now that's really silly 'cos I've only just learned to ride my bike and I haven't got a skateboard yet - ha ha! And guess what I did on the way back - I was sick (yuk). Even though I had half a ginger root capsule! I wasn't sick on the way there so that was good 'cos it's nearly an hour's drive away but I really couldn't help it on the way back.

So I went to the beach this morning, there were quite a few people and dogs there but I met up with my friend Ruby (she's a Cavalier King Charles spaniel and she's really tiny) and we had a little play and run around together. I didn't run and play as much as I normally do, I think my inside stitches are making me a bit uncomfortable. I played a bit then lay down, then walked a bit and lay down, then played a bit more. On the walk back home I met a Jack Russell Terrier and we sniffed noses but he barked at me, that wasn't nice was it? I had a lovely long snooze when I got back.

Oooh, I gotta go, Dad wants to play, I suppose I'd better go and keep him amused!

Cuddles and licky kisses to you. Thank you for coming to see me.
