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 didn’t arrive.  Eventually Mum found me and said ‘hey Humph, what are you staring at?’  Then she said ‘Oh Humph the clock has changed’.  What does that mean?  My body tells me when I get fed, what time the pub opens, when the long orange things arrive AND when I go for a walk.  Its played havoc with me.  Why do you humans need a round thing on the wall to tell you all that?  You make things so complicated.

Naomi has been busy writing on the blackboard in the bar.  She read it out to me and its all about Christmas and New Years Eve.  Talking of which, no one has invited me to a party yet so I’m starting to think about my favourite TV character so I can sneak into the party here.  I’m practising walking on two legs so you will never recognise me!  Tideswell Singers are coming in singing Christmas Carol’s, Litton Band are having a party here and playing afterwards and Cressbrook Band are coming along too.  Helen runs Cressbrook Band.  She (and others) come in every week after practise for a pint of our lovely beer.  I love Helen, she brings me treats so I sit staring at her all night.  I think she loves me too because she lets me follow her to the loo and outside for a smoke (that’s Helen, not me!)

Stoke.  I heard someone today say that they were from Stoke and read my blog all the time.  How nice is that!  I hope they remembered to put a pin in our map.  I here Guy say ‘I will just stoke the fire’ How strange!

Anyway, my brain has now told my body to adjust and I recon its about Toby time so I’m off to put my outdoor gear on.  Its going dark, does that mean tea will be soon??

Catch you soon

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’...

Sunday is blog day

Mum got the square black thing out so I thought ‘blimey she really doesn’t want me to leave’ so I jumped up beside her and here we go. I smell beautiful.  Toby ( he’s my new best mate and takes me a walk every afternoon), took me down the dale...

Where do I begin?

I’ve got so much to tell you I don’t know where to start.  Firstly, thank you to all those customers who keep coming in and asking about my blog.  I’ve told Mum if she doesn’t let me do it I am moving out to live with someone else, and I will...

Coming soon ….

Just to let you know that I will be doing my blog very shortly and intend to do a Sunday update every week. I’ve lost my voice from asking Mum to sort it. She has just let me pop on but its my bedtime and I need to dream of rabbits….I caught one last week...

Oh Ruby!

Ruby came in tonight with Jack and Chris and their friends Mike and Viv.  She’s a beaut!  A lovely springer spaniel just 7 months old.  Just the right age for me because I’m nearly 2 you know.  We were both a bit shy to begin with then it all kicked off....

Much to tell

A couple came in the other day.  I could see Mum thinking ‘I know them but there is a special reason’.  Well I can tell you!  They were the couple who agreed there is only one Humphrey in this world!  How lovely they came to see me again.  They said I had...

Weekend Treat

Cheryl and Steve came to stay in our B & B.  I heard them chatting to Mum, they were lovely.  They used to train police dogs so when they asked if they could walk me Mum jumped at the chance.  I could tell she was thinking “dog trainers, a day with them...

It’s here!

The ‘clear view’ is in!  Its a square box and looks LOVELY!  I just lay in front of it and warm my paws.  I can’t wait to show it off to my doggie visitors.  I wonder what Albert will think of it? Talking of which I haven’t seen Albert for...

That time again!

Mum has come down with the square black thing so I thought “here we go, time for my blog”. First of all I missed Bluebell.  Apparently she is the most beautiful whippet in the world and no one bothered to call me down to meet her.  I had only popped up for...
