It's A Dog's Life

Buster's diary

How Scary Lady got her name


Monday's walk: Got soaked.The weather was good when we went out but the storm clouds soon appeared. 



It was all right for scary lady (that's her who does this blog thing - will explain the name later) she had her coat on. It was a good walk though, nearly caught a rabbit and then I found this loaf of bread in a field - I know, bizarre! Rufus took a chunk out of it, then we played around with it for a while.



Rufus thinks he is faster than me, but that's because he keeps going round in circles, I heard scary lady say that if we were running in a straight line I would catch him easily. 
How scary lady got her name
When I was a cute little puppy I used to wreck the garden. I would pull plants up and dig holes. One day I was in the process of digging a nice new hole when Polly crept up behind me and whacked me with a huge dead poppy plant that she had just pulled out. It didn’t hurt but it did scare me and made me jump. Polly’s daughter Amanda was there at the time and said “Oh Buster did the scary lady make you jump, come to me” which I did and she made a lovely fuss of me. All done for effect but it made me feel good!
Anyway back to my diary. Back home and drying out nicely on our comfy beds. I bet all the doggie treats in the universe she brushes us when we’re dry.
She did, look at me. 



Why is it that when we're brushed Rufus looks like an elegant aristocrat and I look like a ball of candy floss? I’ll soon mess myself up again though!

Scary lady is quite nice, she gives us treats, and we do feel better when we've been brushed.

  1. It really is a dog's life isn't it? There's nothing my dog Gus likes more than a walk followed by a brush followed by treats :-)

    1. I usually time our walks quite well, like today, the rain had stopped so it was a nice fresh walk, but then it got muggy and just minutes after arriving home it rained again!

  3. My Tia is beginning to know what a good dog's life is! She managed a two mile walk the other day followed by a bath, a groom, a long drink and then an even longer sleep :-) A lot better than the life she has had as a breeding dog with no love or exercise at all xx

    1. Hello Blueshell, very sorry for the delay. Yes I'm now known as the scary lady, I'm only scary occasionally though! You have some lovely photos on your blog, and the video of the animals is so sweet :-)
