A bit about Fez

Fez is our little dog. His mum Floss is a stumpy smooth Jack Russell; his dad is a Huntaway-Border Collie cross who jumped the fence for some sexy time. I should also mention his dad has only three legs – what a champ. We got Fez at Easter in 2009, when he was about two…

Abby Update at 17 Weeks

What an exciting day Abby’s just had. Not only did she have her first solids she also got to play in her (nearly) new Jolly Jumper! She had exciting baby rice as part of her dinner – well, it was exciting for her. I took a taste and it was pretty bad. She managed about…

Abby Update at 6 Weeks

So the magical six weeks has arrived… In her sixth week Abby got chicken pox and her first lot of jabs – what a lucky girl! She also found out her hands are super tasty and has gone through yet another growth spurt. She is now 5.5 kilos and managed to grow two centimeters in a week…

Fez is found!

We’ve found Fez!! Someone called just after 6 this morning saying they spotted him down the road. He took off and was heading towards the bus tunnel (yikes) she said, but luckily didn’t go through it. The hubby picked him up after about 40 minutes of searching. He was pretty scared. In fact he was…

Our Fez is lost

He escaped today by going under the house and through a gap. He is microchipped and registered, but my baby brain forgot to put his collar on when I went out today. I hope he’s not hurt, and if someone has picked him up I hope they take him to the pound or the SPCA.…

A Puppy Can Dream

A friend of mine posted a comment on Facebook asking “What do tigers dream of when they take their little tiger snooze?” (It’s a quote from the movie The Hangover, which I haven’t seen yet.) I don’t know about tigers but I bet my puppy dreams of jumping on the bed, chewing everything in sight…

Being a mummy must be hard

Had my first taste of motherhood last night – even if it was with my puppy Fez. This little sad pup wanted to be comforted so we had him sleep with us on our bed – what a treat for him! He didn’t want to be at the foot and insisted snuggling up next to…

Fezzie No Balls

Aw poor little Fez! Today he was neutered, had his double dew claws removed and a microchip implanted.  Not only is he a eunuch now, he’s a crippled eunuch labelled with a number. He seemed fine when we picked him up, but the drugs must have worn out because he is one sore little pup.…

Stuff I Luff

Being pregnant. Ok, so I whinge alot about it, and will whinge even more later, but it’s a magical feeling knowing that you have created a little human being that will look somewhat like you and your husband. Cupcakes. That’s a no-brainer. I’ve bought myself another two trays making four all together. Perhaps it’s time…
