Say Yes and …

I was asked to enter Ellie in a contest called Nose of Tralee. The idea behind the contest is to let people see the amazing lives these animals who are re-homed or rescued can have with their new forever families.

Saying yes, was the easy bit because then I learned that a photograph or photographs of her were needed. That meant giving her a bath, which means I have to catch her, bath her, blow dry her and then clean the bathroom and finally clean me.

So it was done. Then to my surprise many people voted for her and she is now her County Nose of Tralee. Great I thought, until the sash arrived and more photographs were needed, which meant another bothersome bath. Being Ellie each photo session meant more and more items were gathered by me to persuade her to sit still until I ended up with this…

 

It took forever to get her to look at me but when it was done, I went in search of the main man -Bob. He had given up waiting for his photo to be taken and was snoozing. I woke him and this is the awful look he gave me!

Go away, I am not moving.

 

If you have a moment, because after all the washing and bathing I would appreciate a vote, the link to vote for her is: Ellie

Thank you,

The down side to being an outdoor dog

Ellie had a surprise new experience. A visit to the doggy hairdresser. The results speak for themselves she was glowing and feeling good but Bob wasn’t so sure. He seemed to be suspicious of this perfumed version of his mad cap companion as you can see from these photos he is staying away.

Bobs Diary: A word that should be banished.

There are many great things in this life but once Maria mentions the “W” word.

Sunshine is nice…

I’m off.

No fence can keep me out

Where to?

I know the very spot to have a nice nap

Anywhere where everyone is allergic to work.

A good days work

Working means many things to many people. But in the world of dogs (as in my two) work means the following:

For Ellie, – collecting sticks while out walking

Getting mucky while finding the smallest trace of scent hidden in the weirdest of places. Today was weird it was a pipe buried in the ground.

Bob – sitting.

I think you get the idea there is a pattern here all pointing to one thing – Bob likes to sit and be sociable while Ellie loves to work.
