Ellie's Hairecut and Bazzy's sore leggie

Hey everyone. It has been a while between bloggies, but only because the silly pinkie woman has been busy working far too hard.
Lots of news to catch up on too.

Silly Bazzy has gone and hurt himself - I swear I was not involved in any way - honest. I mean I would like to take credit for it but he managed it all on his own.

Mum took Bazzy to an ADT Club grooming day a few weekends ago and silly Bazzy jumped down off the grroming table and hurt his front leg. He was limping for a few days and the pinkies were keeping an eye on him, but it was getting worse, so mum took him off to the Vet.
The vet thinks Bazzy has pulled his shoulder muscle. So he gave him an injection of Rimadyl and some Rimadyl tablets to take home and mum was told to keep him quiet for a week and off his leg.
Ha ha what silly advise to give for a 6 month old Dale pup!
But anyway mum came home and put Bazzy straight into his pen, all set up in the lounge.
Well he cried, then barked (I didn't know he had it in him to bark so loud!) then when that didn't work he tried crying again. Eventually he just lay down and went to sleep - I think by then he was sulking BIG TIME.
He has been allowed out most of the day, because we go outside while the pinies go to work, but when they get home and we go inside Bazzy goes in his pen. Mum said something about the slippery floors not being good for Bazzy to run on. After a couple of nights mum caved in to his sulking and allowed him to lie up on the couch with her, so long as he stayed still and on the blanket.

Well he tries to stay on the blanket, but somehow manages to end up almost on mum's lap. Big baby.
He looks pretty comfy doesn't he?

So I have been getting lots of peace and quiet, but I do miss our wrestling sessions, and I do try to rev him up a bit, but both the pinkies tell me off for that!
On Saturday mum finally got around to giving me a Hairecut. It was long overdue, I was looking like a big woolly goat.
So now I am much happier being inside - it was far too hot for me before, I think the pinkies have the heating set on 30c - geez it gets warm!

As you can see the Brat still gets out and tries to play bitey face with me every now and then. And even though he is almost as big as me now (he is 23.3kg, and I am 26kg) I can still take him down!

Look how cheeky he is!

The pinkies went out for a very special lunch today to meet some very special Dogs.

Charlie and Opy - yes the pinkies drove out to Brooke and Greg's for lunch and didn't take us with them.

They did bring back pressies for us though - some nice piggies ears to munch on - Thanks Brooke and Greg we love piggies ears!

And you know what - they took the camera with them but never took any photo's - even Greg never took any photos. I think they were all too busy emptying the scotch bottle LOL.

We also want to send big wet beardie kisses and dale hugs to Denise and Bryan and the Leura Dales - D's daddy is really ill so we are sending all our good airezen up to Sydney. We are thinking of you.

Stay safe everyone.

Hi Ellie and Baz,
Thanks so much for the beardie kisses and dale hugs. We will pass them onto D & B.
Wow your pinkies got to meet Opy and Charlie. How good is that. I bet they had a great time.
We hope Bazzy's shoulder is better soon.

Hugs and tail wags

Oh no! Poor Baz! We hope he heals quickly! It's tough to keep a 6 month old quiet!
Get your licks in as long as you can, Ellie! Mitch is 18 months old and my days of beating up on him are over! He's bigger than I am and he weighs more than I do!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
