He is back!

He has returned from his travels but has been too busy to help with the blog and keep the world informed about my life. However I had a great time with Jazz but was pleased to see him back and he did bring me some presents -even if I do detect the hand of Kerri involved in the purchase.

On our walk the other day I was trotting the path along investigating things that needed it and minding my own business when there and behold there blocking my way was a penguin(Spheniscus magellanicus to those of who know)!

It was a bit embarrassing really as I was not sure what to do

He seemed to be doing his morning exercises or just trying to impress me!

I am sure a Basset could do that with some practice

Finally I did manage to squeeze past trying not to disturb him. (It is a pity that he did not afford me the same courtesy).

I think I shall stick to the hills from now on. Plenty of space and no irritating birds who think they are fish!

By the way contrary to popular beliefs penguins can fly!

He is Off Again!

HE is off again and I am going to stay with Jazz for a couple of weeks!! HE is off to Spain (where it mainly rains?) for a meeting and will be staying with Kerri, Brian and the SUMDs before coming home. I hope that HE brings me something nice!

I suppose I should try and look as though I will miss him

but two weeks with Jazz will be a gas!
Last week we went mountain climbing.
I am not sure if I like heights!But it certainly sharpened my appetite.
I even ate Diddle Dee berries!

Not that nice but it settled the stomach
( AJ and UT like them)

BTW what is this about Easter Eggs? HE tells me that they are not for Dogs! (something about chocolate being bad for me) They should make Bonio Easter Eggs!

My sister and brother have become famous as they appeared at Crufts this year! Actually I am famous already so I do not need to make an exhibition of myself! Although I am sure that I would be able to show them a thing or two!

Am I not a well set up Basset?

My ears well exceed the minimum size.

Feet perfect.

My tail is "gay"
No problem with the jowls.

The only problem things seem to fall apart sometimes!

No matter how I try!I am going to have to think this out

I am sorry that I have not been writing my Blog recently but the Boss has been very busy and I had forgotten my password!
