The Budster had to go to the vet for his monthly allergy shot this morning and us Cavies decided that we weren't going to be left at home and so all 5 pups plus 2 adults climbed into Mum's car - good job she has a dog-mobile! Lilly jumped right into her place in the front seat so Dad got to sit in the back with Buddy taking up 2 seats so he had to share a seat with Penny. The littlies - Charlie Beau and Louis Bumble ended up on the parcel shelf! They LOVED it!!
When the Budster had his jab we went to our local park - we don't go there much as there's a really cool wood over the road from our house where we can be off-lead without too many worries. So anyway, we get to the park and not a dog in sight so Mum and Dad let us big dogs off lead and Charlie Beau and Louis Bumble were on long extending leads (as it was their first time at the park) next thing you know there are 9 dogs all milling around having a whale of a time! We met Tia a black lab who we see in the wood sometimes - she's as crazy as Buddy is! (and as slobbery slimy!!) There was a greyhound lady and two terrier mixes. We had LOTS of fun and made lots of new friends. The park is good and we want to go there again soon!
So Bumble is now known as Louis (pronounced Looooo eeeeee) While Bumble was a cute name he didn't really like it much and only came when Mum called Charlieeeeee, and because we are Lilleeeeee, Penneeeeee and Buddeeeeee Mum figured he needed an eeeeee name to be like the rest of us. So Loueeeeee he has become. (Mum's got a thing about Charles 2nd and The Restoration period of history and there was a Loueeeeee around in France at that time! Dear God, I hope she doesn't get any more pups one of them might end up a Rupert!!!! Anyway, Louis likes his new name better and is responding to it now.
Ooooooo Tea time! Byeeeeee

A video clip to start you off today - a few seconds of cuteness from the Cavie boys..........
Now, Mum has been very busy working at home since we last blogged and she's been hogging the PC all day long so we've not had a chance to keep you updated. Sorry about that folks!
Bumble went to have his second injection today (and yes - he squealed like a girl again!!) so now he will be able to join us on all of our woodland walks. We're sure he'll love it! He has been on some pavement walks already where Mum can keep an eye on him and he's behaved impeccably on his lead.......(except today when Mum decided to take him shopping to the market and he decided that walking to the edge of the car park was far enough for one day after a harrowing trip to the vets where he got stabbed again!! - don't worry folks...within seconds of Uncle Steve giving him his jab he was all lovey dovey again and kissing the vet his forgiveness!) So he got carried around the market and by all accounts decided this was much better as he could better see all that was going on around him......it was easier for people to pet him as well!!
Mum, in her ultimate wisdom has decide to take up a few of the slabs in our back yard and has planted some bushy things which the boys like to chew. She was kind of hoping that they would grow and give us and the cats some more shade but the boys prefer chewing them at the moment (she made sure they were not toxic before buying them!) However, here is Millie our Maine Coon 'sister' showing us how it should be done....(Fat chance Mum, if its stays still long enough we'll chew it - if it moves, we'll chase it!!! hehehehehehehehe)
Well, we're off for our afternoon walkies now and then out to play in the garden this afternoon while the weather is nice.
Wuffs and wags the Beauclarke Brood!
