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.

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,

The Queen

Hi Fiends

Have you seen my latest episode on YouTube yet? Take a look… and let me know what you think I was really trying to eat!

We want to honour the Queen and say a very Happy Birthday.  We think the Royal Family are great and the Queen particularly, how can anyone live to be 90 years old and not be grumpy, yet she always smiles!  Mum can be grumpy at the littlest thing. In dog years her Majesty is 630, wow!

To honour the Queen, I thought I’d show you some more of our photos when we were at Sandringham because we love it there.  This is me with George and the other Mrs. Windsor, my Auntie Jayne Windsor.

I really enjoy playing with George in Her Majesty’s garden, not sure who has the longest tongue, I mean between George and me obviously.

The Queen’s garden is so beautiful and Mum says the sun shines on the righteous so that must mean the Queen and me, dear blog fiends what does righteous mean?.

Auntie Jayne talked about me at my film launch and about the Queen when we last visited. Although I wasn’t allowed to go into the Church and had to watch from the window, later on Prince Philip spotted me, I was very flattered that he recognised me.

I’m having a very important birthday too on April 28th I will be 3 or in human years 21, I can’t wait I hope Mum has organised a party for me.

Let you know next time my Fiends

Mummy sed I needed too send out mi own Christmas card this yr az I am a big boy now nd that I needed to make it miself. Realli! Hav u herd of anythin so ridiculous az a dog makin his own Christmas card?  As mi Uncle David sez to Mummy: “Fiona, Ragamuffin nos he iz a dog… but do you no that he iz a dog?”

Neway, I contactd Aunty Ellie with my predicament az she nos lots of stuf.  She sugested I get mi photo takn and then wiv the help ov a computer I cud put in a bakgrond ov one ov my favrite walks behind me.  I thought of mi fiend Stu and he sed he cud do it, so I went along too Maniac films studio wher he werks and we had such a laff dresing up nd taking fotos. Then we went upstairs nd he showd me how the card wud look and sed I cud say if it woz wat I wanted, I sure did. Wat do you think?
