We have had a bit of a disrupted start to this year. While the weekends have been full of beaches.

Our weeks have been a little different. Where are we to go Mum?
You know our big block wall in the garden.
Well it was the neighbours garage and they done pulled it down for to make their own really nice garden like ours. Well it might likely be a bit nicer n ours as they are not lucky enough to have digginest dogs.
So for a few weeks this is what it looked like. They did put up temporary fencing for us which was thoughtful.
You do know we be terriers don't you? Lucky the Goose isn't here, that would have been about as much use as a paper tissue to keep her in. So we did get packed off to Nana n Poppas during the week while the "Snooperviser" was out at work.
It's business as usual now as far as the fence is concerned and all painted already and looking just like a bought one!!
And then with my eye troubles I was packed off to Nana's for another week for to have my eyedrops 4 times a day. As you can see I am back to my gorgeous self again too. And to help me in my brotherly duties we did call in back up on the occasional weekend. I did have other things to deal with as you can see here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8djs-KbSeY&feature=youtu.be
See you next week. The Bodester - conefree and lovin it.
Yeah, I know, the dreaded cone. See I had a wee cyst on my eyelid that had to be taken off. And I promised that I wouldn't dig at it with my dirty great hoof touch it. And Mum believed me and took the cone off and well I just don't know how it happened. I did give it a wee rub and I ended up with an ulcer on my eyeball and now the ugly necklace has to stay on forever till at least 2025!!! for 10 days.
So we did have had to phone Dial a Dog and call in some troops for backup.

Open wide and I'll see which tooth is hurting... When did you last brush?
Euan does love Koru but then everydoggy loves Koru.
Job done. Puppy is suitable weared out for oh, at least half an hour or so.
You might like to click on the linky and see what we got up to at the beach last weekend.
The furnishings have been havin a right royal chewin lately. Imagine the dramas if it was me the Bodester doing that. He gets away with murder.
Gnaw gnaw gnaw....
It would seem bayb puppy be teething. Having a lie down with a faceache?
On Saturday when he was playin with his ball Mum noticed bloods all over it and then half an hour later look what got spat out on the floor!!!
His first tooth.
Off to the dentist for a quick checkup. Oh no, not the dentist!!!!
Well the maths adds up, one tooth be out and one hole be in. What did you think you was gonna see then?
Looking more like Bugs Bunny don't you think?
So, tooth out - check, hole in - check, the next step be some intense negotiations with the tooth fairy.
How much does a first tooth be worth in the 21st century??
It did look like Euan needed some advisory help so I was called in to wrap things up and make sure he wasn't bein taken advantage of. "What currency are we payin for this tooth. Euros or the Greenback? I don't think we can accept NZ Shekels. There will never be another first tooth. And NO you can't put it on your VISA!!"
We did get a lovely surprise in the post on the weekend. Our friends Marley n Lola n Clapton sent us the Border Terrier Posse calendar for 2014. It came all the way on the big plane from England. The monies from the calendar helps support terrier rescue over there.
An update on our two weeks break. Mum has been doin huge amounts of lyin on the couch nappin, jobs round the house, and Euan n me have been having little social gatherins in the backyard. One sunny afternoon Cinnamon and Mint came round to play.
While I numptied round the garden kept a watch on the estate - Euan played host with the most and entertained the guests. Sayin hi to Mint.
Sayin hi to Cinnamon, Cinnamon really likes puppies....
Hi jinks with Cinnamon and Mint
We got to meet our new cousin Herbie. Herbie is 5 and needed a new forever home and is now part of the family.
While he did say hello to Euan and gibben him a right snooterin......
He kind of decided that he only had eyes for me............
Well what can I say huh? I have my own stalker.
Not to be outdone in the fan club department - Euan did meet Georgie, another Border who is only one week older n Euan. I think it was lurv at first sight, they played n .......
ok enough of that - next.............
up at club one night we had a social gatherin for a puppy playdate - meeting Denzil who is younger n Euan.
All the gingers..... can you see Euan?
Went walking with more friends out in the forest. We do walks most weekends with our mate Chopper.
And to finish the day off Euan got to go for his first ever swim. Sniggers, I didn't hafto thank goodness.
Hmmmm, he might grow to like it. ........ gotta try everything once I guess
Not looking like a love affair with watery stuff at this stage, he did have to go back in for a rinse cycle as he rolled in the black sand on his first hasty exit. Hope your Christmas break is going as swimmingly as ours.
