We had a wonderful day yesterday. The weather was great, so the humans were happy and I so enjoyed seeing some of my friends. Shadow was pleased to check how some of her children were doing and I was especially pleased to see Hendrix as I rather like him, although not as much as Leo so he doesn’t need to worry. It was a bit eventful for Hendrix’s humans. When they arrived they managed to lock the car keys in the car before they had got Hendrix out. It would have taken too long for the rescue people to come so they had to smash their own car window to get Hendrix out of the car. I love the fact that they didn’t take any risks with my friend. Mum says things like that are her worst nightmare and she would have done exactly the same thing.
Sogeli is a mad as ever and loves to dig holes. I had a go, but I just don’t do it with the same degree of enthusiasm. Cracker wanted to play even when the rest of us were ready to lie down. Mum still thinks Otto is gorgeous. She was very attached to him when he was little. He has longer hair than the rest of us, a gene he gets from his dad. Mum was telling him about one of his half brothers on his dad’s side, Shaggy, who is the only long haired Entlebucher we know. Otto’s isn’t like that but it does have a very cute extra fluffiness about it.
When we arrived we played and played. I didn’t really want to go in the sea much as I remembered it making me ill last year. I know Mum said it would be ok if I kept my mouth shut, but that’s not easy to do when you’re still learning to swim. I totally wore myself out and then curled up sitting on Mum’s knee so I could be as close to her as I possibly could be. I didn’t need to wear my new dressing gown but Mum gave it to me anyway so that I would have it if I wanted to put it on.
