Happy Saturday everybody! I've just been woken rather abruptly by Kylie and Ben to remind me that it's my turn to write Hound Chat this week. The picture opposite was taken while I was still fast asleep so I'm not happy with them for ruining my slumber.
.....well, it's been a fairly standard week for us hounds..... hang on, there's something happening in the kitchen .......... back soon.............

Sorry about that, I've been sat outside the kitchen door for the past few hours with my ears pricked. The female servant is busy making some oatcakes :-))))) She says she's baking them for other doggies as a Christmas present but if we're good we can have some too. Well we are good; we never misbehave and we always do exactly as we're told. Well, that will be the case while we're waiting to sample some cookies anyway, even if we do have to wait a few more hours before she'll let us have any.
Our week has been fairly standard: lots of rest, a few leisurely walks along the canal and surrounding areas and a nice warm sofa to return to afterwards. What more could three greyhound pensioners want (we don't quaify for a bus pass sadly but we'd have one if we could).
The servants on the other hand have been very busy this week. They've been working hard over the last few months preparing to offer a home boarding service and they've been putting the finishing touches to their plans this week. If they do go ahead with taking other doggies in while their owners are away we'll be sure to give them a very warm welcome and may even allow them to taste our nice homemade biscuits. It will be nice to have other doggies joining us on our walks from time to time as I get very bored staring at the back of Ben and expecially his bum during every single walk. It doesn't help that after he's been to the toilet he tries to kick mud and grass in my face. He finds it highly amusing but I end up looking like Worzel Gummidge, especially in the summer when the grass starts turning to hay :-( We need a few boarding dogs who can do the same to him so that we can have a laugh at his expense for a change!
Right, until next week, I'm off for another lie down. This blogging takes it out of you, you know.

We are occasionally lively greyhounds who live with two human servants. Sadly our house- mate Ben crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 23/09/18, just a few hours after writing his final blog. We miss him so much but we know he's running free and no longer in pain.
