Just got these pictures from Kabuki … the one on the left is the hole that Biscuit dug under the fence; the one on the right the poster that ultimately helped track down the escape artist.
This cat is barking mad … well barking anyway:
Yesterday was the day of the birthday. First we went to see our neighbour’s son Liam turn one. Later we came back home and had a gather of people and dogs to celebrate Biscuit’s birthday. If you’re interested in more pictures you can find them on my “smug mug” site:
When I went to Texas I stopped by a pet store and bought Biscuit a bottle of Budweiser. That’s what we told him it was anyway. Now he’s digging his bottle a little more than we’d bargained for. Not that we don’t love the squeaking noise it makes but more that after we finished laughing our ass off at his “butt wiper” beer it still squeaks as loud (louder?) than it did when he first discovered it. I guess Biscuit’s getting the last laugh on this one.
Ever wondered the rules on flying with pets? This Mahalo site give some good information for your furry friends travel prospects but is unfortunately a little too US centric. BTW, has anyone used this Mahalo site before? I’d heard it referenced before but it may be a useful resource in a more general sense. More on that later.
On the top left is a great picture of Biscuit with his friend Bez (another manchester terrier). To the right, Biscuit takes care of his new puppy friend Omi. Below Biscuit poses with his parents and then takes a nap with Mags.
All of these pictures where taken with various people’s phone cameras (thanks Bexs and Deige). I remember thinking the world had gone mad when i first heard of a camera being built into a phone but now a days they don’t do that bad of a job. Glad to have yet more Biscuit pictures.
Biscuit loves to play with the garden hose. He believes that it is his civic duty to protect the lawn from the evil water demon that leaps from the hose nossle and after a game of “chase the water demon” you can expect him to retire tired, wet, and with the world now abundantly safe from the water demon. Having said that, you can equally predict that his happiness from saving the world is at least matched by his new desire to be dry. This small film illustrates this second step in the process.
Biscuit got to enjoy his third weekend in a row of great weather. As you can see above he was pretty happy about it.
For Biscuit the day started in our back yard with variations on the game fetch. One critical difference in the game that Biscuit likes to introduce is the lack of the “drop” command having any effect. Instead he’s lobbied hard to have the rule changed to “rip it from my jaw if you can girly man.”
By the afternoon Biscuit had talked his meddlesome parents and their friend Melody to trek over to the Hamstead Heath. This is where Biscuit found his soulmate, a beautiful whippet puppy who was more than happy to run at full speed in the mid-day sun.
At the end of the day it was a good to be a dog but damn was it time for a nap.
