Hey guys! Nattoben has let me guest blog on his site and I have to say how great it is to be here.
So, let me introduce myself. My name is Hazel and I’m a 15-month-old Jug (that’s a Jack Russell and Pug cross for those of you who are wondering).
Like most Jack Russells I love going on walks and chasing small animals in the park. I have been trying to catch blackbirds over the last few weeks but just as I get ready to pounce, they fly up into the trees. There are also some really big birds in the park that are called crows and although I like to chase them they make me kind of nervous, rather like they are eyeing me up for a meal when it should be the other way around. When I am lucky, I see my best friend Bo. That’s Big Bo and not Little Bo. I like him as well but he is not my best friend. Anyway, Bo is a huge dog but he’s very gentle with me and even lets me lick his teeth. The only time I can’t play with Bo is when he has his ball with him. Then, he doesn’t even know I am there until I try to steal his ball and he growls at me. I wonder if Bo is reading this blog?
Like most Pugs, I looooove to eat! I will do anything for a “treatie” as my owners call them. My favourite treatie is cucumber, especially slices of the mini ones because they are just so juicy and sweet. I get some cucumber at night time when I go outside to toilet just before bed. I say go out to toilet but recently there is a cat that likes to visit and it drives me mad. As soon as I have my cucumber, I go racing up the garden to bark as loudly as I can at this big ball of fluff that sits on the fence looking down at me. It has recently started to poo in the flowerbed which is disgraceful! At least I leave my poos on the grass where everyone can see them. I also get a slice of cucumber when I come in again. It’s a bit of a rigmarole as I have to sit in my bed and shake paws with my owners before I get the goodies but, as I said, I will do anything for a treatie.
I also like sleeping. My favourite place to sleep is on the sofa. My bed is nice but the sofa is the best and sometimes I can squeeze up next to my family when they are sitting there looking at screens.
When I was a very young puppy I used to chew lots of things and was always being told off. Now that I am a big girl, I don’t do that much anymore but once I get a dirty sock in my mouth there is nothing that will prise open my jaws. You can’t beat the sweaty smell of feet. I have even learnt how to steal them from the washing basket which is a fun game for me but apparently not such a fun game for my owners.
Well, my paws are getting tired now so I’m going to finish up and go to sleep. Great meeting you all and hope to be back on here soon.
All my love,
P.S. These glasses aren’t mine, just something that one of the boys stuck on my face for fun. I didn’t mind, really, and think they make me look rather intellectual.
