My mate Toby

I love Toby and I think he loves me!  As you know my friends the weather has been terrible and although I love the white stuff it has been a bit cold!  My mate Toby has been EVERY day to take me for a walk.  Sometimes he has come back more Dalmation looking than me.  He never complains.  I’ve even been a bit naughty and found water where he can’t reach me.  I pretended not to hear ‘come on Humph’ and he had to wade in and fetch me out – sorry Toby!  All this heavy walking has made me loose weight.  Mum said ‘why can’t I have a waist like that Humph?’  I suggested she tried the orange diet but she didn’t look too pleased?

So the big walk for Dave (sandals) is on Sunday.  I’m pleased because Mum has increased my food to give me the strength.  We are leaving Ashgate Hospice at 9am and walking home – 20 miles.  Martin who used to walk me when I was a puppy is coming along – yipee, he ALWAYS carries treats.  Anyway, if you are walking with us great.  If not come to the pub from 4pm.  We have got a young girl who is a GREAT singer coming in, I might just join in, and a raffle for some brill prizes and I heard Mum say free food, what more could you want?  Its all for Ashgate Hospice so do come on in and join the fun, I would love to see you.  Mind you don’t hog the fire because after walking 20 miles I know where I will be laying!

I will let you know how it goes, I think with other money raised we are nearly at £1000 how good is that?

Off for some rest ………. Humph Humphrey

SNOW, SNOW, SNOW!

Hello my friends.  Its at times like this that I’m glad I’m a ‘black lab’.  Mind you, if you saw me when I’ve been out in the snow you wouldn’t be able to tell.  I came back the other day and Mum looked horrified, I had a complete...

MY DAY!

Today is Friday 16 February 2018 and I am officially 3 years old.  The humans keep saying that means you are 21 Humph, how do their brains work? I’ve had a lovely day.  Toby (my dog walker and good friend) bought me a present all wrapped up.  How kind.  I ripped...

Oops!

I said Joy’s dog was a Boarder Collie, its a Boarder Terrier.  How am I supposed to know, its not a black lab!  It was lovely though! We had the Quiz for Dave (sandals) on Friday.  It was great, loads of people came along and we had food – it smelt...

Happy New Year!

WelI, I started this ages ago and never got round to hit the send with my paw!  Loads to tell you so will start where I left off.  I hope you had a great New Year?  Our party was great, some people dressed as Wacky Races and brought Mutley along.  I thought, great...

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone!  I’ve had a ball.  Well I have had a ball but I’ve also had a great time. First there was the white stuff,  the orange things have been plenty and then there was the presents.  Mum gave me loads of presents to undo, cuddly toys,...

The White Stuff

It’s Dalmation time again!  The other night I popped out for my last ‘visit’ to the garden and hey all this white stuff was falling from the sky.  I LOVED it!   I was running up and down the garden and skidding on the patio, such fun.  Mum was...

Panic over!

My mate Toby came to take me a walk the other day as usual.  We’ve found this fab place with loads of water for me to play in.  Off we went and in I went!  The next thing I knew Mum was on the phone and Toby was out of breath because he could hear me barking and...

Funny Times!

Something has gone wrong with the round thing on the wall with numbers on it.  I know, that every day, Toby comes to take me a walk after school.  So, off I went to the back door on Monday and stood looking down the drive as usual.  I stood and stood but he...

Would you believe it?

I’ve had a message from South Africa!  Helen, the lovely lady who came just to see me, has got her ‘black lab’ Merlot (I hear the staff offer that to the customers, hope they’re not selling her dog) to send me a message.  He’s got 2...

I’ve been so busy entertaining!

What a week!  I think we’ve had more dog breeds in here this week than Crufts!  That’s where Mum went and brought back that ‘do not feed collar’! First there’s Guy.  Guy works behind the bar.  Mum calls him ‘something’...
