I feel quite exhausted today, as yesterday there was a big lunch party and I was very much on show. I have to say I do love a good party. As soon as I see Caroline laying all the tables this is always a good sign. All those people to rub my tummy and make a huge fuss of me. I really have a way with the human race and they simply can not resist me. Sometimes they even give me little tidbits which is always a huge spoil.
When the large fire place in the Great hall and the drawing room get lit I have the perfect spot to lie in on the grate right in front of the fire. Bliss.
However it is Monday so no parties today but I do spot the blacksmith arriving which is very good news as long as I can escape out to join him as there is nothing more delicious than old horses hooves which if I am lucky get shaved off their feet.
An added bonus to the day is to see Linda who I share the ‘meet and greet’ job with when our season at Great Chalfield starts. I am rather dismayed when she does not set up our table outside the barn. However she has not forgotten to bring Molly and I a biscuit each. She settles down in the kitchen with my owner with far too much paperwork for my liking.
The weather is still grey and wet so I am rather reluctant to go on another wet walk.
I spend most of the morning answering the back door as there is a string of people who have come to see my owners and really bypass me with out so much as a tummy rub but I guess they are all too busy and it is only Monday.
Last week I was very under the weather and quite poorly. So much so that I had to be taken to the dog doctor. This is something that I normally like as it means going in the car and I do like to sit in the front looking out of the window. However on that day I had such a sore tummy it is not fun. The dog doctor is very kind though and says what a fine dog I am and gives me some magic pills. I am brought home and put to bed which is rather a bonus after being so spoilt on a Monday morning.
