Jenny has got a new hatch back car. I don’t like it because I’ve got a new carrier and I can’t see a damn thing. Which means I’m not barking in the car any more at the traffic and any wooffies in other cars, there’s no fun in life now. She’s raving about it though, she got it from Pet Planet.

Just had to listen to Jenny’s latest idea. She’s going to form a village Book Club. They’ll  read only one book this year because the review process will take so long. The first book is called Fifty Shades of Gray. Next year they’ll move on to the trilogy of Noddy and Big Ears.

Jess Ben and Chloe

Lands End here we come

Here’s me saying goodbye to Ben and Chloe this morning.  Thought I was going with them – got my lycra collar on ready! Ben is cycling from John O’Groats to Lands End. (1000 miles) in aid of St. Christopher’s Hospice near Crystal Palace, London. A Friend’s mother was cared for there last year before she died. The hospice needs £8 million a year to survive. Good luck Ben – it was our privelege to meet you and have you and Charlotte stay, and also to meet Chloe this morning as she joins you cycling today . Anyone can support Ben and the hospice via www.virginmoneygiving.com/BenGirling. Go on it’s a really good cause.

Wow – did they have a ball!. Well the humans did – I wasn’t there – I’ve got form for barking too much when horses are around. Anyway the humans in Symonds Yat, Ganarew and Whitchurch had a race night last Friday for fund raising purposes towards the Diamond Jubilee. It was evidently a great night and they raised over £2600. Great result. The Queen and the corgis would approve cos they like horse racing. Brilliant time was had by all with an amazing atmosphere and plenty to eat and drink as well as place your bets please!

Oh I’m beyond heartbroken (that’s the new phrase to use by us celebrities you know). I’m in love. And the focus of my deep ardour is called Uggie. He’s the Jack Wooffie star of the film The Artist. We could have made beautiful pups together  if my bits hadn’t been take away. But he won’t be interested in me now I have nothing to offer him, I’m devastated. I’ve waited six years to find the right one and for nothing. I’ll have to wear my heart on my collar. Where’s a bone I can chew to manage my frustration. Strong request to J and J (it’s their fault I lost my bits) – I want the DVD when it comes out so I can curl up in my bed and watch it every day. I hope he gets an Oscar http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-16469815

I’ve been away myself last week.  I went on a mercy mission to cheer up someone I’m very fond of who was very sad. But I’m back this week to a full house and we been given a certificate of excellence from Trip Advisor. So the human beings are very chuffed with themselves. I keep on about this but when are wooffies going to get excellence awards for hospitality? – I get barking mad about this at times, I work very hard around here. I’m the star of the show according to Trip Advisor – go and read it if you don’t believe me! And another thing when am I going to get my hair cut? I look more like a sheepdog than a Jack Russell at the moment. Have a good bank holiday.

Long haired me!

I need a haircut please

Jess and Albert

Jack Woffies at play

Another new Woffie friend and playmate who came to stay for 3 days. His name is Albert and we had good fun in the garden. He was very polite he didn’t dig up any of my bones. He couldn’t run as fast as me either. I should have been a greyhound really and thereby hangs a tail! Well not from me – mine was cropped, Albert had a smart one though.

this is what you get for being naughty

Jenny and I went to the woods this afternoon with my sister Saffy and her Mummy. Guess who went tearing off for over an hour and half. I caused mayhem evidently. All I did was find some playmates who live on  Little Doward and I went home with them. Fortunately I have a collar and disc so the kind man who owns my playmates phoned home. Course now everyone is saying how well behaved Saffy is – I hate my sister, woofy goody two-shoes that she is. But I’m not very popular at home this evening. I was going to keep my head down – and not down a rabbit hole either – just under my blanket I thought for the evening,  but I was made to do the washing instead

Hello. Sorry I haven’t written in my blog for a little while.  I’ve been doing Wooffie market research. We can only have Wooffies in the Lloyd Suite at Portland House so to help other Wooffie owners  I went to sample  Holidays for Dogs, and quite frankly I didn’t want to come home! Well I did really, but I want to emphasise what a lovely time I had. I’m going again at the end of the month to stay for a week because J and J are going away, and I’m really looking forward to it.  Holidays for Dogs is in my village of Whitchurch which is brilliant. Just 3 minutes walk  from Portland House – well I walk fast so let’s say 5 minutes to be fair. This means that you can bring your Wooffie on holiday to Whitchurch, and while you stay at Portland House and experience 4 Gold Star treatment so can your best friend at Holidays for Dogs,  being really well looked after overnight in a comfortable 4 star home environment and then the next morning you can set off together for walkies in the Wye Valley.  Holidays for Dogs is licensed for Home Boarding by Herefordshire Council and is not ‘Kennels’, Wooffies sleep indoors. Call us up on 01600891343  to find out how it can work for you and the favourable charging rate available for ‘sleepovers’ .

Here’s me taking the best position in front of the fire at Holidays for Dogs!

It's a hard life!
