Phin and Rab

Hi, we're Phin and Rab and this is our blog.  We'll keep you up to date with everything that's going on in our lives - including the things that 'mum' would never tell you!

  1. On Saturday evening mum gave us our weekly hand strip - she likes to keep our coats short.  This time it seemed to go on for ever and she was being very precise.  She did miss a couple of bits but I wasn't going to tell her as I was getting a bit bored of standing still by then!!  It turns out the extra grooming was because we were going to a photo shoot on Sunday - really not my idea of fun - look at the camera, 'smile'... So, it was a very pleasant surprise when we arrived at The Rising Sun Country Park on Sunday morning.  When we got there we met Martin from Framing Cats and Dog and his wife Jo (Jessica's mum).  This was our kind of photo shoot - we just had to go for a walk, run round a bit, sniff (My favourite past time) and play with a ball (My favourite past time!) whilst Martin snapped away.  The photos are now on Framing Cats and Dogs facebook page and although we may be a little bit biased we think they are brilliant and mum is very very pleased with them.  We would definitely recommend you get in touch with Martin to book  your photo shoot.

    The rest of our week has been quite busy too.  Mum is back into get fit mode (These phases seem to come and go!!), so we went jogging on Tuesday and Thursday.  Mum seems to worry that she is going too far for us (3.8 miles on Tuesday and 4 miles on Thursday) but really she should look in a mirror - she is the one we should be worried about!!  When we get back Phin and I always go for a game of chase round the garden.  Then mid week we saw 'Auntie Karen' from Walking the Dog - we love our walks with Karen and this one was no different.  It was a lovely warm day but Karen made sure we had plenty of water and found this great big muddy puddle that we could play around in - bliss!  The middle of this puddle was quite deep and I'm only little so I was almost submerged trying to find my tennis ball, but don't worry I got it back. Can you spot me in the picture?

    Where is Rab?

  2. It's been a busy week so far - just the way we like it.  On Tuesday night mum didn't have any classes, so she took Rab and I down to the community centre to do some training.  We both love doing training and as an extra bonus some of our friends were there too.  My bestest bud Flint was there - I haven't seen him for quite a long time as he's not been well this past year.  Mum said we were there to concentrate and not to play, but when she wasn't paying full attention we had a little bit of rough and tumble - it's our favourite game.  We also saw our friends Socks and Rydal but didn't get to play with them.

    Soon it was time for our weekly walk with Karen from Walking the dog.  We were really excited to see she has a new van - it's very comfy.  We were out with Tyson - he's a hugh German Shepherd and when Rab stands next to him he makes Rab look tiny!  As usual we were very good and came back every time Karen called us.  But, then I found this dung heap - it was pure heaven and I just couldn't resist rolling around in it.  I shouted to the rest of them and soon we were all rolling around - I don't think that Karen was too impressed - sorry, I'll be on my best behaviour next week.

    As usual our walk with Karen was great fun.  Tyson had a tennis ball with him and I lurve tennis balls and just couldn't resist grabbing it when he let go of it briefly.  Check out the pic of me running away with it (I might be little, but I'm fast!).  Although he's big Tyson is a softie and let me run round with the ball for a while - thanks pal.  Hope to see you again soon.
