Tripe Night!

Ok, here’s what we had for Tea tonight:

The usual veggiemush with DE and Kelp

Some left-over chicken with cream cheese!

Peas and carrots

Potatoes in cheese sauce

all mixed with a generous helping of …

Minced green Tripe!!!!! our total favourite!!!!! It’s such a pity we haven’t got ‘Smelly Vision’. You’d LOVE it!

Notice how Miss Fussy isn’t lying on her back because she doesn’t want to finish her dinner? Well, she got it all over her nose.

Later on I helped dad do the washing up.


It’s been a fairly busy week this week. On Wednesday I went exploring!

Mum’s clients came 20 minutes too early and she hurriedly put us in the kitchen behind the babygate with access to the side garden (You know … it used to be my puppy garden)  This is all ok and the usual routine and while Mum started to work I had a little look around what’s new in the side garden … and what should I find …


… What Luck! … she left the gate open for me!  Through I went to have a sniff around her clients car … and what do I find?


She’d left the garden gate open for me too! GREAT! I’ll have a little look around. I met a lady with one of those two-wheeled things that Mum sometimes rides around on … ‘Hey, my Mum’s got one of those!’ and as she had one of those little people on the back of her’s I decided to follow her – I rather like little people.

So we crossed the road together into her estate just opposite our house where I met three more people who stroked me and kept hold of me and one of them had one of those ‘hold-to-your-ear’ things which she talked into and then Mum came with Nelly who’d also found the open gates but didn’t get as far as me.

It was great … so many pee-mails to sniff …

And yesterday I got into the toybox in Mum’s office.


This is now MINE!

    We’re glad that you guys didn’t get far from home and that you’re safe!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  2. Sounds like you had a great excursion. How thoughtful of your mother to leave the gate open. You wonder why they don’t do it more often.
    That tripe dinner sounds and looks delish. What’s with not leaving any for us though??

    Oooh, your a lucky dog. I don’t have any chance to escape anywhere. Locked door here on the 3rd floor, can’t reach the buttons of the elevator, another locked door on the ground floor. And 2 more closed doors if I’d take the stairs. No way to get out here without Frauchen.

    We tried a comment earlier and it looks like the Internet ate it. Mom is glad your adventure was just a little one and we wish we could wander off like that!

    You escape artists you!!! thank goodness the two leggeds that found you had the good sense to call your mum.

    Hmmm you get the sort of dinner we get though we’ve only had tripe once. Its kinda expensive at our butcher. I might ask D if she could splurge one more time and get us some more.

    Oh my goodness TRIPE?!!!! I LOVE tripe!! It makes my bro and me grunt and growl and we’ve even gotten into a little tiff caused by the delicious delectable odor of it. Yum yum yummy.

    I have also gone for walkies without my humans – when my leash broke or I’ve worked my leash out of their hands. You should see their faces! And they’re always SO HAPPY to get you home again. It’s an awful good time.

    Hi Finni…..sorry taken us so long to leave a message, it keeps getting gobbled up by aliens we fink.

    Your tripe sounds very yummy. Your adventure through the open gates sounds good- but do take care.

    Webster says thanks for dropping by and supporting him.
