My other doctor in Melkbosstrand

On the 7th May, when I had my 'incident' the kind humans at Melkbosstrand Animal Clinic were kind enough to allow me and my human in for my emergency consultation when my regular doctor wasn't available.

I have to admit that I was very nervous and trembled a lot but at the same time I kept letting the nice lady know that I still loved her by licking her and even doing a Poodle dance in her consultation room. She even offered me a bone biscuit as a treat for being such a good girl and not barking, biting or crying but it wasn not something that I was really interested in.

For those that don't know the story, I'm a bit clueless really but my two front leggies were not working properly and when my walking human got home from work and saw me all floppy and unable to stand properly, he freaked out completely!

My blood test results came back and they show that everything is fine and that I am a healthy three year old Poodle. Of course, we still don't know what it was that was wrong with me that day; lets hope it was a one off!

If you're in Melkbosstrand and need to get some anti-flea stuff, a bag of kibble or a nice toy for yourself, why not pop in and support the Melkbosstrand Animal Clinic? They are on Beach Road (heading towards towards Duinefontein).


Play date Saturday 22 May

We have been a bit slack at putting paw to keyboard the past few weeks. It's not that we haven't wanted to post but when our humans get busy with whatever they get busy with, they tend to forget our online needs and they know that we just can't manage the keystrokes to unlock the screen saver without their help!

Kerneelz and Sophie sent me an email late Friday evening to ask if I fancied another play date and when my humans and I read the email on Saturday morning we were very happy to hear from our friends and we made plans to meet that morning.

It was so exciting because we played and ran and barked and ran and played some more and then a human arrived with Eddie the Jack Russel and his shy Jack Russel girl friend (sorry - I forgot your name little doglette) and we all ran around and played together.

Eddie the doglet rather fancied me I think. He kept jumping up and kissing me!

Kerneelz also wanted to play with the small doglet. I like to think he was rescuing me.

I wish humutts met up like this on the beach more often because we canines just love playing together on the beach.

Early morning play-date

I'm being a bit slow with my posts at the moment but Mia and I had a play-date with Kerneelz and Sophie at 7am. It was a bit windy and cold but we had a lot of fun. Mia hasn't met my two pals and all she did was bark and bark and this scared little Sophie. My unruly sister had to wait in the car because she was very noisy and that makes me sad because I want her to play with my anipals with me. Apparently the humutts are considering some schooling for Mia.

Even a wet walk is a fun walk

You can see that we got soaked on our beach walk today and we were running on the beach and the waves were noisy and there was sea foam but it was such fun.


My shaved patch!

I just wanted to show off where my lady vet took blood! I was very brave and she took two lots of blood and I only cried a bit when she took the needle out but I gave her a huge kiss to say thank you for helping me!

The sea foam is back.

I have noticed that this funny sea foam sits on the beaches at this time of year. We like it because it breaks up and blows across the sand and then we can chase it. The best thing about it is that we can run through it and it makes yellow greeny booties around our Poodle paws and it drives the humutts mad!

Poodle Inspiration

Fly like a sea-chicken and rise above stormy waters but if you land on the beach, expect to be chased by a Poodle.

Thought for Tuesday

Activities are always more fun with good friends but if they are in the way, just push in front.
