Looking Good

Sometimes a girl needs a good old shake!! Dont you agree??
Daddys got a new camera so now Zala and I look even better, although I think Zalas taken her modeling a bit far with the ear action shot!
But at the end of the day you cant beat a good pose....... you have to look like you know what your doing even if your just trying to impress.
Personally I find the old 'ear radar' works well in finding game.

I am pleased to say that all my scars are healing and I am almost back to fighting fittness. Almost 'cos I am having a bit of a 'hurty paw' relaps after my 'stick in the foot' incident in June. I think I just strained it but there is a bit of a lump and though the x-ray didn't show anything I'm stuck on the lead for 3 whole weeks. Plus my tablets for the swelling make my tummy poorly so Mum stopped giving me them but is threatening to get some others. Boo!!

The worst thing is that I miss 3 weeks of shooting and can't get off the lead untill the Boxing Day shoot. In fact 'cos I've been so accident prone and poorly this year Mum says we will just right off 2008 and see what next year brings. Hopefully more shooting. fast running, working tests and pointing tests. If I stop being rubbish she said we might do a novice field trial but I don't think she is holding out much hope of me behaving!!

All these photos were taken at our shoot weekend at the end of November when we got to stay in a hotel and sleep on the big bed with Mum and Dad. It was so cool and I managed to steal most of Daddys pillow, Oops!

But at the end of the day its nice to get back home and steal Daddys hot water bottle instead!

Stitches again and it's all Mums fault!

Well, usually its my fault that I'm in the vets with stitches but this time Mum sent me in and it wasn't even my fault. Apparently it was to sort out my hormones 'cos I've been having a bit of trouble with my weight, a bit of hair loss and I was producing milk for a while. Anyway here I am looking poorly and going for the obvious sympathy act 'cos there is no way 'she' will let me upstairs to sulk so I have to take over the sofa!Anyway I had to get fixed although I don't recon I was broken but 'she' (not calling her Mum till it stops hurting and the stiches come out next week!), anyway she said I'm not allowed puppies for lots of reasons;
1. You have to be as pretty at Ditto - not skinny with scars like me
2. You have to be as cleaver as Zigana - not silly and mess around as much as me
3. You need the fashion sense of the Red Girls - I dont even have a pretty collar
4. I need to listen to Mummy and not the voices in my head!!!!

On the plus side though, Fergus still loves me although I am bored of being on the lead cos I'm not allowed to play. But we have managed a bit of hunting so far this year.

This is Zala and Daddy with Phil and Chester. I know hes a weimereeeneee but he is very cleaver and last weekend Chester got a certificate of merit in a field trial. Plus Rionach (pronounced Runnach) got 4th in the same trial and she's only 18 months old. What a goodie two shoes!! Well, I still rock at agility and 'she' says I'm not doing too badly on the shoot. Just another week or so and I'll be back to fast running and ignoring Mum.... I mean 'her'.

Feeling better

Well I'm back, again! I am feeling so much better and now have a cool scar on my tummy, to add to all the other ones on my legs. (Still can't get the hang of barbed wire.) I'm not into this leg shaving lark though, its such a girly thing. I am sorry that Zala took over my blog whilst I was away, she said she would let you all know what was going on but I didn't expect her to fill it with pictures of herself. She's such a princess!
I have almosed finished my antibiotics and am having my stiches out on Saturday. I'm eating lovely tins of chappie and haven't lost very much weight at all. Mum won't let me off the lead though and I only get short walks with no running or jumping.

Worst of all though is I am missing 2 days beating on grouse this week and dont know if I will be allowed to go next time. Got 2 weeks to get better and Mum said she might take me on the lead if I'm ok. Zala came home and said it was so much fun even she did fast running.
I guess she must have worked very hard 'cos she had to have a snooze at lunch time whilst Fergus spent his lunch break with his head down a hole. Oh he's so cool!!

Well, I will spent my quiet time up dating my blog and finalising my world domination plans. I think that if we all group together we can take down these humans and take over all the kibble and dog toy suppliers. Boys put on your best collars and ladies get your hand bags ready. I will send more details soon.
