Surf ‘n Turf

We went for a walk as the weather was perfect for once and mum was fed up working. We had such a lovely time, I just have to tell you about it.

We went down to the park by the riverbank. It was very peaceful and there were hoomans rowing up and down the river in canoes. Those are funny looking little boats. Mum threw my ball for me lots and lots, I got so hot I went into the river to cool down, and had a lie down in the water. The fishermen weren’t too pleased. Ooops.

There were lots of ducks to sniff at, they weren’t frightened of me at all. I wish mum had brought some bread! (not just for me!)

When we got home, I was ready for a good nap. But mum had other ideas. She gave me a chewy biscuit treat – look at the big grin on my face!!

Peg leg

I’ve been at home all day. Mum took me into work but I was practically crawling along the pavement and I was holding my leg up as I couldn’t put any weight on it, so she took me home to rest. After calling me a pirate.

We went to the park yesterday and had a lovely time. It was so sunny, our first proper sunny weekend this year. I was chasing my ball for 2 hours, and it was a half hour walk to the park, so I really had a lot of exercise. And a lot of fun. Too much of both, really. Mum says I look like I’ve run a Marathon, as I’m moving so slowly. I feel like I’ve run a Marathon. So I stayed in mum’s bed all day and snuggled up in her duvet.

New bins

Mum’s new office is a super-duper modern building, lots and lots of glass walls – even the elevators are made of glass. I had a great time riding up and down in them all day, looking out to see what was happening. Mum’s friend Julia covered her eyes, she couldn’t bear to look. On one floor they had 2 palm trees and a pool, how cool is that? Even cooler, they have their own chef on the premises. He bakes cookies every morning and I tried so hard to get one off the side board when mum had her coffee and cookie. Don’t they look sooo good?

Everyone is sooo nice and friendly, people keep popping in to say hello to me. I wandered into one of the lawyer’s offices and mum had to find me and drag me out. His bin had something nice in it. She made sure I was tied up after that *pouts*

At lunchtime we went to a tiny park just around the corner in Finsbury Circus. It’s hard to believe there is actually a park in the middle of the city.

Only assistance dogs are allowed into this park. It’s the oldest public park in London and dates back to 1606. Wow. It’s 402 years old! Click HERE to see a panoramic view of the park. The bowling green has been there since 1904 – I wasn’t allowed onto it, what a shame, all that lovely green grass! After a nice walk, we went back to the office for lunch in their cafe. I was eyeing up the sandwich counter but didn’t get anything. At least I got a few pats from the caterer.

Mid afternoon, Jillian popped out to get coffee and came back with chocolate chip cookies – my favourite! my favourite! I sat and watched her and mum eat them. They looked so yummy. I made sure to go straight for Jillian’s bin when mum untied me at home-time. I got my jaws round the cookie wrappers – Jillian fought to get them off me while mum fell about laughing. She can’t believe how greedy I am.

I love new offices – more people to meet and greet, more bins to inspect. Hurrah!
