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 frozen white face.  The humans don’t seem to understand that we can lay out in front of the fire toasting our paws then go outside rolling in the snow, I can’t see the problem?

We’ve had a LOT of the white stuff, in fact there was so much I could walk down the middle of the road because there was no cars.  I’m pleased it hasn’t stopped everyone walking to the pub.  Albert (with his coat on) came to see me.  It was just like old days rolling about the floor.  Sika (the brown lab) has been in.  She hasn’t got a sister anymore, Mum was very upset, but it means Sika now looks a really big girl.  I suppose its a bit like when the humans have babies???  Walter, the English Bulldog popped in today.  I thought he looked a bit different but Mum was gushing over him.  And guess what?  Jussi came in last week.  He’s a ‘black lab’ and just one day older than me.  Mum took a photo (as usual) and put it on facebook.

We were on Radio Sheffield yesterday (March 2 at 2.30pm)  Mum thinks people might want to listen!!!!!  They were talking about colours and liked the red against the snow white.  Its a shame our Red Lion sign is white because the sun has bleached it!  I was sat next to Mum nudging her but she didn’t pick up on the fact that I was black and that is a cool colour, maybe next time!

Well, I hope I’m off for my stroll down the main road in a minute.  Last night we walked up the hill and someone had built a brill tunnel in the white stuff.  I disappeared it was great.  All I could hear was ‘Humph where are you’ tee hee.  So my friends if you want 5 minutes peace from the humans pop up Church Lane and I’ll meet you in the tunnel, you can’t miss it.

I think Mum’s got me in training because we are doing the 20 mile sponsored walk on Sunday 18 March (only 2 weeks away) for Ashgate Hospice for Dave (sandals), I bet his toes are cold in this weather.  If you want to sponsor me please go on ‘justgiving’, Dave is a lovely bloke and its for a good cause, PLUS I’m willing to get sore paws!!  www.justgiving/fundraising/davidwilliamsashgate   Any amount will help

Thank you! and catch up again soon.  Yours

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...

Black Labrador!

I always hear Mum saying “yes, he’s a black lab” Well let me tell you I haven’t been very black this week!  The builders have been in and cleaned the fire place, that was black!  We have had dust sheets up and Lou our cleaner kept saying...

Can Swim, Won’t Swim!

I’ve got webbed feet!  Well Mum keeps saying ‘Humph, you’ve got webbed feet, so get in and swim’  What are webbed feet?  As far as I’m concerned I’ve got 4 paws, thank you very much!  I LOVE water.  Mum takes me to the river and I...
