Back to School

Hello fiends!

It’s that time of year again when we all buy new pencil cases, get our hair cut (or fur) and try on our uniforms only realise how much we’ve grown since July! It’s time to head back to school.

I’ve decided that I might give it a go this year, I know I am only three but that is 25 in human years so I think I am quite old enough to start my education! (you can see how old you are in dog years here)

I want to go into schools to help teach my younger fiends about how to look after animals, especially dogs! I will teach them things like not to leave us in hot cars or at home alone for too long and what food we can and can’t eat!

For example, here I am teaching a fiend that some drinks like fizzy pop aren’t good for dogs, we LOVE water just as it is.

I have already learned lots in my three years, like how to use a computer and drive a car… although I have needed help from my fiends. So I think it’s only time to return the favour.

 

What are you looking forward to learning about this year at school (or at work for the grown ups)? I have really enjoyed learning about how to use the computer and be safe on the internet in the last year, but this year, as you might have noticed, I have become quite interested in science. So I have decided to learn a little more about the world around us through science! I will share with you what I learn!

I hope this week isn’t too tough back at school fiends! And if you’re about to have your first day, have fun! It is so exciting.

 

Until next time fiends

Dogs behind the wheel…

Hello fiends! How are you this week? Have you been continuing to watch the Olympics? I was so excited to see how well we are doing and have been barking along in support! Isn’t Jessica Ennis-Hill just amazing!? I’ve loved following the swimming, diving and cycling too. Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know I like to do a Tongue Out Tuesday photo (#TOT), like some of these…

 

What do you think? I think it really brings out my eyes 👀 #tongueouttuesday #tot #potd #lfl #dogsofinstagram #pets

And I was really pleased to see I had some support from Bradley Wiggins when he was receiving his Olympic Gold Medal with Team GB.

 


There is an upcoming episode of The Adventures of Ragamuffin where I drive a car… sort of! I stumbled across a video today of a dog left alone in a car who decided to take it for a spin… It didn’t end awfully well to say the least!

Far worse than my attempt, you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled for that video soon.

However, not all of us are as careless and crash into supermarkets. Just take a look at some of the amazing things we are capable of with the right training…

Remember fiends, don’t leave your dogs in cars for too long or who knows what might happen! Especially in this warmer weather, it isn’t much fun.

 

That’s all for this week fiends, do let me know what you’re up to, or if you want a mention in my next blog, via Facebook and Twitter.

 

Until next time,

Here Comes Rio 2016!

Hey fiends!

I hope you’ve all been appreciating the technology of Cat’s Eyes while driving about since last week’s blog. I’m looking forward to the week ahead, but I can’t believe that its August this week! July has flown by. I am quite excited though, because this Friday it is the Olympics Opening Ceremony for the Rio 2016 Olympics.

rio logo.jpgThis year rugby sevens is included in the games, which is great because it will really increase the profile of the sport and encourage youngsters to take it up! I have always been a rugby fan.

I’m also looking forward to watching the swimming, I have high hopes for team GB! I think I would be good enough to participate, but my butterfly isn’t yet strong enough… and there isn’t a category for dogs at the minute.

Great Britain always tend to do well in the equestrian events, so I’ve been giving that a go too this week.

It makes me feel quite nostalgic because the last Olympics were, of course, here in England for the London 2012 games. I was just a twinkle in my mummy’s eyes then, but I have been seeing what I missed out on. The BBC have created a show about the 2012 opening ceremony that is really interesting and moving! You can watch it here.

And if you fancy swatting up on the last opening ceremony, here are some fun facts from BuzzFeed that you can WOW your fiends with.

Brazil certainly have a tough act to follow… even if I am biased! But I am so looking forward to watching it and cheering on team GB! Who will you be cheering for? Are there any events you are really looking forward to? Do let me know on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Until next time fiends,

Tennis, Cycling and KISSING!

Hello there fiends!

How are you this week? It’s been quite the week for me out and about with my fiends exploring. You may have seen some of my posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

I’ve been continuing to follow the tennis and support Andy Murray! Fingers crossed for him, you can see above I am hoping for a repeat of 2013.

The Tour de France also began last weekend and I have been cheering them on while admiring the beautiful French scenery, it has made me feel a little French in the head.

Mark Cavendish is currently in the Green Jersey, meaning he is the current leader in the points competition. Although we all know it is all about the yellow jersey!

I’ll take the yellow cap instead of the jersey! …

All this exercise reminds me of the endurance needed to compete! I have had lots of practise from my long walks across Devon.

be quicker by car
It would be easier by car!

I also do a bit of agility training and that takes lots of mental and physical endurance for us pups!

You may have seen this week it was National Kissing Day and my social media was covered with images of people sharing the love. Here are some of my favourites and of course my own, sharing the puppy love!

A Fun Week with Fiends!

Hello again evrybody! Mum is very surprised but pleased I’m doing so wel with my spelling, she doesn’t no that Auntie Ellie is helpin me an that I’m using spell check… which I think she mite think is cheating! Never mind, it givs me more time for ball chasing. Now let me finnish telling you about my Christmas nd the adventures I had this week:

Mum went to Church with the Royal family again on Sunday 27th December, she wos very happy and I had lots of games with George in the Queens gardn which I actually think is more fun than Church, but I’m not sure if I’m meant to say that. I go to Church evry Sunday wiv my Mum in a Church near us but I usually just fall asleep.

We travelled back home on Wednesday 30th just in time for New Year! But I didn’t do anything on New Year’s eve as we were so tired from all the parties we had been too at Auntie Jayne’s hows. We did however go for a lovely walk witch I think Mum really enjoyed I know I did, although we did get a bit wet.

This week we went up too sea my horse fiend CoCo. CoCo nd I are good fiends and she kisses me and says hello.  Mum went riding, although it seems to me as if they just go round nd round in circls most of the time and I just have to sit nd watch which is a bit boreing.  There is a new dog at the stables called Doug, he is just a puppy nd quite anoying as he won’t leave me alone so I ad to tell him off. The gd thing about seeing CoCo is that Croyde beach is nearby and I’m aloud to play on it. I love the beach!

Coco and Ragamuffin

We went round to my girl fiend Moja’s hows and we had lunch together.  Our fiend Buster wos there but luckily he wos much better behaved than at my partie. Auntie Wendy has a bird calld Thomas, which is funy because she is a girl bird nd she lays eggs, weird!  She is very ANNOYING and squawks and I think she is saying rude things to me as she tries to take my dog treets and she pecks me on the botom!  We had a good time and had sum cup cakes. The humans chatted and chatted, goodness nos what they find to talk about, although we dogs hear our names mentioned a lot.

Thomas the Bird

Mum was sad when one of her favourite singers died, David Bowie, people have said I look like David Bowie because of our eyes.

I tried to cheer her up with a song nd it made her smile and she patted my hed so I was happy. Here is a video of me singin, wat do you think?

I was very il on Friday night nd my tumy exploded and I made a very bad mess in our bedroom.  I was ashamed nd sat in the corner but Mum sed it was not my fault and we wud see the vet in the morning.  The vet wos nice and took my temperature… which I did not like at all. The vet sed that there was a virus going round and one dog died but he was a very old dog and I  did not have to worry because I was very fit and heathy.  We had to sleep in the sitting room and I had to stay in all day Saturday but I was allowed to watch television, which was excellent!

Mum said I hav to make a New Years Resolution so I said I wantd to play with more balls nd have more walks and eat more chicken.  Mum said that wos rather selfish so I said I know I will give all the treats I don’t like too poor dogs in the Dog’s Trust.  Mum sed okay not exactly wot she had in mind but along the rite lines, at least I was sharing. Do u have any New Years resolutions? Have u managed to keep them? Let me know on my Facebook page or on Twitter!

Think it’s time I wrap up guys, Mum is getting suspicious because I keep sneaking off. Don’t worry, she’ll never guess!

Until next time fiends!
