It’s a summer Sunday in London

There was so much going on in London yesterday. There was a big cycle race from London to Surrey which closed off two main roads near us – which meant we had to walk all the way from home to Hyde Park – 35 minutes each way! Read more…

Sunday treats at Doodle Meet

We had our June Hyde Park Doodle Meet yesterday – and for once it did not rain nor threaten to rain.  On top of that, we had special treats from Wellybix! Read more…

Will you come to our Doodle meet, Arthur and Leo?

We have cockapoos, cavapoos, labradoodles and even maltipoos come to our doodle meets in Kensington Gardens but no golden doodles yet. So we were absolutely delighted when we met Arthur, a goldendoodle – who lives close to us. Read more…

Fair-weather “hoomans” invade the parks

We found out about MYSA on May Day!

Yesterday was May Day. Not Mummy’s day, just May Day.  And when we walked past this maritime flag at the Round Pond in Kensington Gardens, Mummy thought this spelt “May’s!”IMG_7451 Read more…

Sunny Sunday with Hebe

It was a beautiful Sunday and we were at Kensington Gardens, enjoying the weather.IMG_7408

We encountered a teeny weeny puppy and her sister.  Of course we thought they’re cockapoos or possibly cavapoos but it turned out they were labradoodles!IMG_7384Mummy said to their owner – I guess they have a lot of growing to do! To which she answered – Tilly’s a puppy but Milly is fully grown! What?!?!? Milly is smaller than me!

All we could think of was Crumpet! IMG_6555This is Crumpet on the right next to me and Charlie!  Never mind, we doodles come in all sizes and all colours!  And the bigger we are, the more to love!

With that thought in mind, we walked on … enjoying the beautiful sunshine.

This past winter had been long and wet.  And Spring was no better and in fact, the coldest Spring in the last six years. Today was the first time this Spring that Mummy felt she could lie down on the grass and enjoy the warm sun, IMG_7388looking up at the blue skies.IMG_7403We sat close by, as we usually do … watching the world, more accurately, squirrels in particular and listening to the sounds of birds singing and the wind.

While I sat very still –IMG_7400George, sat on the other side of Mummy, also scanning the horizon for squirrels  …IMG_7404But before long, he was off to socialise with passing dogs –

George is always happy. His mood doesn’t depend on the weather – he’s happy to do back rubs regardless of the ground conditions!  Though Mummy is happier when it’s dry when he does his back rubs.

And just as we were dreaming the day away, along came Hebe with a ball in her mouth and her mummy.IMG_7414George chased her around, not liking the fact that she is playing with a ball – George doesn’t understand why we like balls.IMG_7419But Hebe wasn’t interested in playing.  She was ball-obsessed so her mummy took it away. But there was no way she was going to just let it be.

She begged to have the ball back. Then I decided I want the ball and took it away from her! Poor Hebe, she must have thought – who were these two lunatics. One didn’t like me playing with my ball and the other stole it!

May’s comment:  It was a crisp, beautiful Spring day – so lovely to be out and about.

And along came Jane and Hebe. They recognised George and Darcy from our blog as she was walking past and we ended up having a long chat till it was time to go.  Jane gave us a few more tips for dog friendly places around Kensington! Yay!IMG_7435I think we could have sat there for a very long time except I was thinking of that Sunday roast!

Jane, let’s meet up again sometime!
