HOme Again

Life is good! I have returned home after a overly long duration away from my home, my bones and my mummy and daddy. Uncle Jon and Cousin Jem were good hosts but really, only a home will do.
Since being back Mummy and daddy have regalled me with tales of their skiing. Turns out skiing is a thing and not a place and that you do it in white stuff called 'snow'. mummy and daddy says if it ever snows on the hills near here they will take me to see it. I don't know though cause this white stuff looks awfully cold- mummy is wearing more clothes than I have ever seen in all the photos!! Think I might need boots to keep my paws warm if we ever go.

Mummy says they went skiing in a place called New Zealand. She says there is lots of sheep there and also big big hills called mountains. Mummy and daddy bought me a stuffy back from Zealand- they say it is Kevin the Kiwi. It makes a funny chirping noise when I pick it up.

Sadly, mummy and daddy will not let me investigate the inside o Kevin to see where the noise is coming from. Just as I am getting set in they take him off me- humph! I keep trying to run away but despite my excellent swerving moves they always seem to catch me. Still ii give them a good run around!!
Ever since they got back Mummy keeps saying 'ouch' a lot. She says she hurt her leg skiing, which seems like a silly thing to do. She says it is alright but we have to be gentle with her for a while. Honestly, they go away and levae me and come back and demand that I do not play rough with them on the floor. Humph again!!

Well I will look forwards to catching up with you all,
Liffey's licks to you all

PS- I was very disappointed to have not won Eduardo's most meditattive pose contest- I WAS meditating Mango- and I feel very unloved that I got zeros percents in the readers choice. SIGH- perhaps I will do better in the dufus contest that starts today. Wish me luck!!


  1. Hi, Liffey!
    Glad your Mom and Dad had a great time in New Zeland! I am sorry for your Mom's leg! Please, take care of her, ok?
    Be nice with that toy and it will be with you for a long time!
    Good luck at the Contest!
    Kisses and hugs

  2. Liffy,
    Sorry about the meditations competition. You labradogs are almost too intense for meditations, huh? That's OK, somebody has to guard the estate, right? Now doofus, I think that is something that you will be most excellent at.


  3. Hey Liffey!
    I learned how to swim at a swim club where I used a life jacket and a nice lady was in the water to help me. Before that, I went in the water, but my bottom would sink and I would thrash around. Maybe you could do something like that?

    Yeah, Mango is a dork. So full of himself. You have to go easy on him, though, because his brain is so small.


  4. oh you would have won top prize with me, you look so cute with your new toy in the photograph on here!

    Snow is not much fun I can tell you, we get lots here in the winter, its ok while it is white, but when all the dogs have been out, it turns a horrid shade of yellow. Yuk! ;oD

    I hope your Mum's leg gets better real soon, my Jeannie has never tried ski-ing because she is scaredey cat.....oh did I mention cats,.......

    lotsaluv Liffy from warm and sunny Scotland!
