Wiggle - Day 1,532

We've had yet more heavy rain so we were glad to get to the field yesterday evening and enjoy some sunshine:

Wiggle and Sofy were enjoying the fine evening, running around and playing fetch and watching me, waiting for me to throw the ball:

Sofy was leaping through the grass:

And as the sun got lower in the sky, playtime ended while Wiggle and Sofy snacked on some grass:

Wiggle - Day 1,530

Today is a Bank Holiday.  And as is often the way with a British Bank Holiday, its been raining.  Hard rain all day. 

Wiggle and Sofy are not impressed with the weather....

Wiggle - Day 1,529

Wiggle and Sofy were very happy that we've had a dry day here and to make the most of the good weather, this afternoon we went up to the Downs for a walk. 

Wiggle had his tennis ball and was ready to play:

Sofy was first to the ball, with Wiggle not far behind:

Sofy made a crash landing - not the only time she took a tumble!

A ball each:

Wiggle took his ball and just wanted to run and run:

Sofy was running too:

Staring, sending me "throw the ball" thoughts:

Sofy was looking attentive (for a change!):


Even though they had a tennis ball each, Wiggle and Sofy wanted to chase the same ball:

Wiggle runs ahead for the next throw:

Wiggle was searching for the ball, running this way:

"Am I near it yet?"

Running the other way:

And finally, the ball in sight, Wiggle pounce's!

The next throw - Sofy realises she might just be in the way!

Wiggle took his ball and ran again:

Sofy's unique ball catching technique...

As LucytheLab would say: Running like racing ponies!

Probably keen to keep out of Sofy's way in case she crashed again, Wiggle ran off...

And kept on running! 

Fortunately, Wiggle didn't run too far and made it back to the car with Sofy & I and since getting home, he's mostly been sleeping on the sofa - Worn Out Wiggle!

Wiggle - Day 1,258

As is the case for a bank holiday weekend, we've had rain.  BIG rain and thunder and lightning, but during a lighter shower, Wiggle and Sofy went outside to check on the garden and were not really in the mood for playing:

"We don't like this stupid weather - it's not fun!"

Wiggle - Day 1,525

This evening Wiggle and Sofy had some quality time playing in the garden, making up for rain stopping play yesterday.  They had a few toys outside, which meant lots of excited boinging:

Sofy went for a snatching move and grabbed the toy from Wiggle:

Settling for a little chew:

But when she wasn't paying attention, Wiggle snuck in and grabbed the toy, then ran around with it to celebrate:

Wiggle's joy was shortlived as Sofy managed to get two toys all to herself:

Wiggle then decided to act all nonchalant, like he didn't care which toys Sofy had:

And while Sofy wasn't looking, Wiggle made his move!

Wiggle had a quick chew:

Sofy concentrated on holding onto Pink Duck:

While Wiggle lay down to chew ...

Wiggle - Day 1,522

Today Wiggle and I went to visit Bella and her family.  Bella stayed with us back in 2009 for a short while as a foster and not long after, Kate and Graham and their family adopted Bella.  Although she's an old lady now, Bella is still very much in charge of the other dogs - Boo, Vernon, Poppy, Coco and foster dog Cherry and this afternoon, she joined us and some of the dogs for a walk.

Wiggle was running for the ball:

Lovely, lovely Bella!

Foster dog Cherry:

We walked a different way from Wiggle but after a few minutes, he came running to find me:

BIG running!

Wiggle and his best bud, Joel:

Bella - nothing like the baldy little girl who stayed here:

Super special Vernon:

Wiggle found somewhere that looked like a good place to cool off:

So he did!

Wiggle - Day 1,520

There's only 4 weeks to go until the Labrador Rescue annual Dogs Party!

It's a fun day out, with all funds raised going to support the work of LRSE&C.  Wiggle wouldn't be the dog he is now without their support so we're hoping there's a good turn out of dog's and their owners on Sunday, 16th September at the Dogs Trust, Harefield, Middlesex:

We will be there, helping out on the Registration & Information stand, so please come and say hello, enter some of the fun games and classes, stock up on some fabbie Labrador merchandise and help us raise much needed funds for the charity.

Wiggle will be giving out cuddles and Sofy will probably be barking!
