We spent the afternoon around Toadsmoor with my mate Nina and had a communal doggie puddle wallow. Well I had a wallow - Nina has got more sense obviously. This was about the only decent picture mummy managed all afternoon!
However, I got my just deserts in the end, because I managed to con Daddy into feeding me at 4 then Mummy into feeding me at 6! Double-dinner bonus!! I'm rather podgie now...and feel slightly sick.
I have found myself a cracking disguise, and sussed out how they get into the house (via a window which is quite high up). All I need to do is practice my bouncing so I can get in the same way and voila - the dinner is mine! Planned sortie at O nine hundred hours tomorrow - wish me luck...
Mind you - she is rather gorgeous, and very well behaved - I think it's love. I'm hoping that she'll visit again so that I can redeem myself. After she went home on Friday I spent the whole evening mithering and sniffing the carpet where she had sat - sad or what!
Mummy had an email from another working cocker called Poppy today, she's black and only 10 months, from West Dorset - who knows, maybe I'll get to meet her one day too!
As for you Aunty Tracey - Daddy refuses point blank to be featured until he has got all trim and gained a six pack (He has as much chance of that as I have of winning Crufts!!). He says he likes being a mystery - I think he's been listening to Toyah Wilcox too much myself!

Day two and we went to Tarr Steps and walked all the way from there along the river to Withypool - 4 miles aparently but I'm sure it was further than that. Loads of pheasants to chase and it was really well signposted so when we got to places with sheep they warned you to put me on the lead. Found a smashing pub for lunch and then had to walk another 4 miles back - I thought Mummy and Daddy were going to pass out!
I have been busy flushing this particularly peskie pheasant out of the field behind where I live. I would have thought he'd have got the message by now and moved on, but he keeps coming back for more. Trouble is I get all excited when I smell him and drop my ball - I've lost 2 balls this week thanks to him, so Mummys not impressed.
We are off on our holidays today - to Coombe Martin in North Devon. The hotel welcomes dogs and even save tit-bits from the kitchen...can't wait! Aunty Tracey says there are loads of really great walks, and even greater pubs, so I think we shall all have a lovely time. Will report back at the weekend when we get home.
Mind you this time she had a hypnotherapy session - Aunty Dee has just qualified so wanted a guinea-pig (Mummy definitely looks like a guinea-pig sometimes, but don't tell her I said so). Anyway, while I am trying to wear out Uncle Mike round the forest, Mummy has her feet up having a nice little sleep - and she calls that work! (The picture shows my impression of Mummy hypnotised!) Aunty Dee has got a website and everything, and Mummy reckons she's pretty hot stuff, so I'll include the link www.athenatherapy.com. Wonder if she can hypnotise all working cocker bitches to fancy me something rotten!!?
Mummy had a meeting with a new client today and she left me guarding the car - when she came out she stunk of unfaithfulness - there was a definite smell of cocker spaniel on her skirts, and it wasn't from me! Finally she confessed that the lady owned two gorgeous cocker spaniels, one boy and one little girl of just 5 months...but she couldn't let me meet them because I'd have wanted to play and she needed to work. Apparently they were show breed rather than working cockers but very pretty all the same. Maybe I'll get to meet them next time.
