Field Trip

Tomorrow mummy is going on her field trip. She is going to the aillwee caves in Co. Clare. She has been there before when she was younger and remembers them being very pretty. Sadly I cant go as I'm not a student :(
But mummy has promised lots of pictures for me and you guys to see.

And since a blog post isn't complete without a photo, here is yours truly basking in the morning sun

Spring has Finally Arrived

It was sunny today for the first time since.......well a long time! It wasn't warm but it was sunny, which means spring has arrived here in Ireland.

We decided to celebrate by going for a walk in the forest.

I now pronounce you MY TREE!

Has spring arrived for any of you guys yet?
The clocks also go forward an hour tonight...spring is on its way :)

Flashback Friday *My Gotcha Day*

I hope you all had a good Paddy's Day. We didn't go to a parade this year, instead we had lots of family over for some Guinness and some other beverages :P

The other day mummy was reminiscing about my gotcha day, and I thought we should share it with you guys along with some cute puppy pics of me.

Mummy always wanted a pug and was told for her 17th birthday that her parents would give her the money for one as a present. So about a month before her birthday mummy rang almost all the breeders in Ireland and told them to let her know if any puppies had or were going to be born.

Then on the 5th of October mummy got a phone-call from a woman in Tipperary, saying that she had three black pug pups. The woman had gots mummy's number of another breeder. She asked mummy if she wanted to come down and see the pups. Mummy said yes even though she actually had wanted a fawn pug, but it didn't hurt to look right ;)

 The woman told mummy that the parents (my pug mum and dad) were champion show dogs and had won lots of medals. They were suppose to have produced champion offspring but things hadn't gone as planned. All three pups had white marks on their chest and weren't suitable for the top class shows. Mummy said that she didn't care if the puppies had a hundred white marks and that she would still like to come and visit.

On the 7th of October I met my mummy for the first time. There were 3 of us, me and my two sisters. Mummy wanted to take us all home but she chose me. She said that my sisters were very well behaved and had already been toilet trained while I barked and howled and rolled on my back and peed up into the air.


I guess my mummy just has a soft spot for naughty little boys, but who cares she chose me and I am so very happy that she did.

P.S. Yes we realise that we are posting a flashback Friday on a Saturday, mummy actually wrote this yesterday but instead of posting it, she saved it as a draft...whoops and didn't realise till today so I guess its actually flashback Saturday :P

Its been a busy week

Gosh it sure has been a busy week here. We have OFFICIALLY moved in, everything is now unpacked!
Tuesday was Pancake Day (also known as Shrove Tuesday) not sure if you guys celebrate it in America. On pancake Day everyone eats pancakes all day-that's really the gist of it!
Mummy gots some pancakes at school and when she and her sisters came home we all made some more pancakes! Oh boy were they delicious!

 Wednesday was Ash Wednesday...DUH! :P On Ash Wednesday you go to church and get Ashes on your forehead. I think the ashes are made from burnt palm leaves...not the priests cigarettes as mummy's sisters thought. It is also the beginning of Lent (it ends Easter Sunday). During lent you give up something or take something on. Mummy gave up fast food and took on making sure I get walked everyday and her homework was done on time. I have decided to take on an extra meal each day :D

Then today we did some explorings :) There is a dog house in the garden which I have claimed as my own :)

This is the drive way up to our house! Trees, trees and more trees! 

We will take some pics of the inside of the house soon...I promise! And for those of you that asked, yes we are still living in Ireland. The house is actually really near where we used to live. Mummy didn't have to change school or anything, she just has to get a bus now.
The landlord who also built the house said the house was shipped over from Canada (how cool) and they just had to assemble it. They make it sound so easy hehe.

We've Moved

I told you guys it wouldnt be long till I was back posting :) I love my new house and all the explorings it offers me.
Here is a picture off it...pretty neat..huh

 The whole house is surrounded by forests (mostly pine trees) and offers so much exploration. We found our house on google earths. Can you see all the forest it has...

 In other news....On Saturday we all went to the local horse fair. They have a dog show their every year and mummy thought it would be fun to enter me into it. I have never been in a dog show before so we weren't expecting to win or anything just have fun! But guess who came 3rd place in they toy catagory.....MEEEE!!!

Mummy left her cameras in the car so we took the pictures of me and my yellow rossette when we got back to the car park. There were so many dogs there and so many butts to sniff. It was such a fun day, I am so going back next year :)

Also its Shrove Tuesday tommorow a.k.a pancake day XD.....CAN...NOT...WAIT...
