Hair of dog

I went to the groomer today, and now I am really, really beautiful! More than usual, that is, because obviously I am naturally incredibly beautiful, so there's not much the groomer can do - I really just go there to make them feel useful.

Here's me before.

Here's me after.

See how smooth and fluffy and shiny I am!

Basically, I'm gorgeous!

But you already knew that.

All I want for Eathter are my four front teef

I spent the other evening with my cousins Bertie and Oliver. I passed the time biting Bertie's beard (one of my favourite pastimes, actually). I left him a special present - four of my front puppy teeth.

My Aunty Freya took this picture of them missing.

My human has started calling me Gummy.

Hot puppy

Today it got to 46 degrees Celsius, it was a little warm. We got up very early, and my human took me out for a walk while it was still dark and a little bit cool. Then she put foil on the windows, to reflect the heat. I was going to help her, but the foil made a funny sound coming out of the box, so I decided to run out of the room instead.

I spent the day playing with ice-cubes, and sleeping on my cooling mat. My cooling mat is filled with crystals that swell up when they are soaked in water, and then the water evaporates and keeps me cool and damp. My human says that the crystals are non-toxic, but she would still prefer it if I didn't chew holes in the mat and eat them.

Stealth puppy

My human says I can bend the space-time continuum, because when she's doing housework she keeps coming across me lying on the floor, in the same position but in a different location every time. Sometimes she will walk past me in one room, and when she gets to the next room, I'm already lying there.

I'm also an expert at locating socks. I can identify and extract a brand new, never-worn sock from a pile of clean washing in almost no time at all.

And I ruthlessly hunt down and kill tissues wherever they may lurk.
