Halloween Party

Mummy went off to a Halloween party with our chums next door.  I wasn't allowed to go because they said I was too young and would be scared.  It's not fair.  Judging from the photos, it didn't look the least bit scary, and they left before the inflatable bats came out.

The vet visits yet again

Mummy bashed herself in the eye overnight and came in for breakfast looking like this:
The vet was summoned and since I have seen it all before, I just snuggled down in my stable and slept through mummy's treatment.  Apparently she had dye put in her eye making it green, followed by eye drops and the inevitable injection.  Mummy says that it is best to look really pathetic while this goes on because it elicits lots of sympathy and at the end you get an apple for being such a good patient without any sedation.

Thanks to the wonders of modern veterinary medicine, mummy is feeling quite sparky now. It has been left to Her to continue the eye drops which is very funny to watch now that mummy is feeling fine, and it is not at all clear whose eye has got the most drops in.  Tee hee!

Our chum Ariel and the Music Extravaganza

We have seen a lot of our chum Ariel lately.  His owner had an ambitious plan to show off his talent by appearing in a Music Extravaganza riding without a bridle and demonstrating his liberty skills.  These are best practised in a confined space - our arena- and She has been advising and helping with the choreography.
We have watched, bemused, while Ariel performs lots of different routines to exactly the same music - over and over.  We don't want to hear 'Les Chemins de l'Amour' ever again.
Everyone was agreed that Ariel could perform a spectacular, and moving, finale by synchronised twirling with his owner.  Sadly, on the night, when it came to the synchronised twirling grand finale, Ariel was seized by an irresistible urge to pick up some stray pieces of hay he'd spotted on the floor.

Fortunately for Ariel, his owner still loves him.

We weren't invited to the Music Extravaganza, and have had to content ourselves with watching the 'Highlights' video, which was subject to some tactful editing...

The vet visits again

The vet has come to visit us again.  Mummy had bad tummy ache and was rolling about so the vet was summoned to make her better.  I assisted for a while, but then I was banished to my stable for chewing the vet's trousers.  Posy had injections and a tube put up her nose but she does seem to feel better now.  I have been helping with her recovery.

Autumn colours

To mark the change of season, I have a new outfit in a tasteful shade called 'Berry'.
It has a smart and snug wrap over front...
Here Hanuman subjects it to the 'tug' test...
Next, he tries the 'teeth' test...
My new outfit has proved robust enough to withstand the most rigorous consumer testing...
It is also waterproof which is handy as it is bucketing with rain now...
