When we got up this morning it was pretty wet and rainy. However this does not deter us from our Morning Walkie. Nelly had a particularly marvelous time … digging … her nose was in EVERY mousehole! Mum had to put her on the lead three times to get her to come with us. Then we met our friends Stella and Molly with their Mum and Dad, and, after the obligatory Snakky-exchange with me and Nelly sitting in front of Stella and Molly’s mum and those two in front of ours (Stella’s mum brings great colourful sticks! and Stella & Molly can’t get enough of the Frankfurter sausage that Mum brings :D) Mum had to put Nelly on the lead yet again because she wasn’t listening to ‘This Way Nelly‘ because her nose and paws were down another hole … she was filthy!
The lead always does the trick and we continued on our way along the side of the lake. This is where we play our current favourite game … Rocky Fishing! Up until now Nelly didn’t like to get her paws wet but today … she went in … she dipped her head in (up over her eyes!) … and she pulled the stone out! Well Done little Nell! Mum throws the stone in the water and we fish it (or another one … doesn’t really matter) out. I’m not afraid to dip my entire head into the water to get that Rock. It’s easy, all you have to do is blow bubbles.
Back home after we had our rub-a-dub and Mum had hers we decided to do some baking.
We’re going to send the recipe to Wyatt for his birthday competition. We decided to make some Lucky Puppy Dog Biscuits!
Naturally we were a great help … testing the ingredients
Mmmmmmmhh! …… Lard! Easily my most favourite ingredient!
… and licking the utensils clean
Nelly is particularly good at that one.
Later on Mum’s little helper, Amelie, arrived to help with the cutting out and we must say she did a very good job of it too.
These are the ones she did for us.
Not bad for Two and a half , ey? Well done Amelie! They look delicious!
Mmmmmmmmmh, all that’s left now is the crunch test ….
Oh yes!!!! They’re good! Hope Wyatt likes the recipe!
