Hi ALL! Poor old Bugs (my bunny best bud) is having an operation on his mouth today (30/10) but hopefully he will be back in time for the start of next half term. I will be in on Monday to welcome you back and I can't wait to see your halloween outfits! This half term I've mainly been chilling but I did go along to a PTSD event for veterans. Whilst they sadly did not feel I'd make a very good army dog .... apparently I'd need to possibly be a little more obedient and potentially aggressive .... all the lads and lasses found my tricks and hugs very entertaining. I'm not sure why everyone I meet laughs .... hope it's with me and not at me eh! I've also been on lots of long walks and said hi to members of the public as usual. Always a pleasure to meet those who are a bit dog phobic - I do my best cat impression and they decide dogs are not so bad afterall. I've also completed the new Farmageddon trail at Alice Holt Park this half term - cool film!
