Summer's here and I get to indulge in a bit of sunbathing which is one of my favourite things to do. Thankfully my less than lean physique means I balance perfectly on my back so I get maximum tanning exposure on my tummy. It's not all plain sailing though – as soon I've made myself comfortable Daisy wanders along and plonks herself down right in my rays. She pretends she doesn't know what she's doing but she's a sneaky old madam... sweetness and light to all the humans but boy does she glare at me when she feels like it!
Luckily I've got my own personal swimming pool opposite the shop which I have all to myself. I've tried to get Daisy to come in before but she gets a bit sniffy and says that it's not becoming for a more mature Westie to get all wet. I've never seen her go swimming though so I think the real reason she doesn't go in is because she doesn't even know how to swim! I have to say a few laps gets me working up a great hunger and that's handy because my really favourite thing to do is eat. At the moment I'm mainly dining on Applaws which Mum says looks good enough to eat. She's obviously not the sharpest tool in the box... I eat it everyday!
One of the best thing about this time of year is that I get lots of evening walks. Mum is generally a bit distracted because she's always on the look-out for owls and badgers but to be honest that's fine by me because it means I can chase as many rabbits as I like without her shouting at me. It hurts my ears when she's screeching at me – the perfect way to ruin a nice evening out!
Well that's enough from me this month – my brain hurts with all this thinking – we'll catch up again soon.....
