Greetings, friends near and far! Benny Hound here! Well it started off as a fairly normal week. As you can see from the picture, I do like my sleep (and lots of it) after a busy day of resting, and I'm pleased to say I got my usual quota. I've had lots of nice sleeps while the humans have been busy doing their duties. The male servant has been acting more strangely than normal. He keeps on doing press ups in random places. I thought he looked like he needed help on Saturday so I kept jumping on his back and pawing at his head while he was doing them. Did he thank me? No! And he even told me off and said the word 'bum' at one point (or something similar). Kylie didn't pay much attention but Lucy put her paws over her ears as she doesn't like bad language. After the excitement of last week when we had LOTS of nice home made biscuits (note to humans- we need these more often) to celebrate Lucy being eligible for a doggy bus-pass, this week it was back to normal biscuits from sunny Wolverhampton. Don't get us wrong
the biscuits we normally have are more than acceptable but we do like extra special treats. One little bit of hope is that the granny servant, who pops round each week to fuss us, has given the regular servants some nice coins to buy us more treats so that looks promising! We are looking forward to car rides soon. We've been promised a trip to Cannock Chase and the sea side in the coming weeks and we'll post pictures of our adventures as soon as the humans get on and sort it, along with their press up and baking duties. On a darker note, our radar ears picked up early signs of trouble a few days ago. We overheard the humans mentioning the 'B' word. We aren't a big fan of Baths! Well, would you want to stand outside having water and shampoo poured over you for 20 minutes? No you wouldn't and neither do we! We always hear that old adage from the humans saying 'you should thank us for this'. Well, we haven't yet and we don't intend to! Hopefully they'll forget this impending misery while baking and doing press ups, particularly if I keep jumping on the male servant and nibbling his ear.
Anyway, I'm shattered now after writing this (yawn), so excuse me while I go back to my basket for a short 11 hour kip
Paws and slurps,
Ben, Lucy & Kylie xxx

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.
