Mummy and I have been very busy since I wrote last.
Mummy's best friend Lynne made an unexpected visit to the Isle of Wight. It was lovely for Mummy to see her and spend time with her friend. They laugh a lot, at the silliest things.
On one lovely sunny day Mummy took Auntie Lynne and I to the seaside at Sandown. We went to Mummy's favourite Witchcraft and crystal shop and then afterwards had a lovely stroll along the esplanade. Auntie Lynne offered to buy Mummy a coffee and so we stopped at this little beach café. Mummy and I chose a table where we could feel the sea breeze so I didn't get too hot. When Auntie Lynne came back with the coffee's, she also had a little tub of ice cream - for me! Oh Cherry it was so good! It wasn't the yucky artificial Mr Whippy muck that's bad for doggies either, no, it was proper pure organic vanilla ice cream! Mummy fed it to me with a little spoon so I didn't gobble it all at once and get muzzle freeze. That also meant it lasted longer. Mmmmm ..... yummy!
Once Auntie Lynne had gone back home, Mummy set about collecting more of her things from Daddy's house. It's a slow process as Mummy has so many treasures to pack up. But she now has her desk in the sun room next to Nanny's desk. My memory foam bed is now next to Mummys desk, so that I can stay with Mummy when she's in there.
Mummy has collected all her grown-up colouring books and pencils from Daddy's house and put them away in a nice drawer that Nanny emptied for Mummy to use. I sat next to Mummy on my mattress while she was knelt down sorting through her pretty things. Then Mummy felt a bit peckish so she went to the kitchen and came back with Apple & Cheese! Yes Cherry, cheese! Oh I had to sniff Mummy's plate. You know how I love cheese. Anyway, as you can see by the photo, although my nose got close, I didn't steal any. I waited patiently for Mummy to share it with me. It was lovely. She tried to entice me with a piece of apple too, but I don't like fruit so I refused it.
Well I'd better go for a snooze now. All this writing has made me quite tired.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Love & Licks

We've just had a lovely weekend.
Mummy and Daddy's friends came to stay - I've met them several times as they regularly stay with us, and it's always good fun.
They make Mummy laugh a lot, and I even had a chuckle at something Auntie Sandy said, you can see it in a photo at the end of this post.
The weather was okay so we went on lots of walks.
Mummy and auntie Sandy went all the way down to the river where we went with you and your mummy, do you remember? Down the big steep hill - where your mummy stopped to talk to the cows - and to the river at the bottom, where our mummies collected pieces of slate.
Then all the way back up again. We had to stop a couple of times though as it's such a steep climb.
Daddy and uncle Tony didn't come with us, Daddy doesn't like walking much, especially up steep hills!
We went to a garden centre on Saturday, and auntie Sandy bought me a pig's ear and some puffed chickens' feet - yum yum.
I like it when people visit, but it's always nice to have the house back to ourselves after too.
I had a fright yesterday when Daddy took me for my afternoon walk.
I'd stopped to have a sniff, and as I stuck my nose in the grass verge, a pigeon flew out of the hedgerow, all noisy flapping wings, making me jump out of my skin. Daddy jumped too because he wasn't expecting it.
I jumped right up into the air and landed back down on Daddy's foot - oops. He said, 'Ouch,' but laughed too. I always chase pigeons if I see them on the ground, but I couldn't have caught that one.
I wonder what it would be like to fly? Can you imagine having wings, Arik, and flying around high above the trees? I bet it's a lovely feeling.
It's a special day for Mummy and Daddy today, their anniversary.
Daddy took Mummy a cup of tea in bed and sat with her while they opened some cards. They've been married for seventeen years, which sounds like a long time.
Mummy said being married means that you've promised to love someone for the rest of their life, and share your lives together.
So that means I must be married to Mummy and Daddy too, because Mummy always tells me she'll love me forever, and I share my life with them.
Arik, you must be married to your mummy as well, because she made you the same promise. Aren't we lucky hounds :)
Ooh, it's almost lunchtime, I usually have a nice crunchy carrot when it's lunchtime.
I think we're going away in the motorhome again soon, so I'll tell you all about it when we get back.
Love and licks,
