    Scampy McScampFace’s Scamp Life

    Confidence is the preference for Scampy McScampface, a habitual voyeur of what is known as—Scamp Life!

    After Scamp has been rudely awakened he gets some exercise (in the country). At around 2pm, upon their return, Scamp and Little Brofur have their treats. Then, with full bellies they have their naps. So far, so good, cause I like to nap around then too. It gives me an enermous sense of well-being, know what I mean?

    However…

    A certain Scamp decides anywhere between 2-3pm onwards that he is feeling more awake; ergo it must dinner time—which unfortunately for him; is 4pm sharp. Thus begins “The Dance of The Scampy McScampface”… only far less sugar plum fairy like, and a bit more hippo 🦛

    Scamp starts off his dance in first position; which is to vigorously wag his tail at me while making engaging huffy noises. Second position involves rubbing himself up against my legs that go hand-in-hand with snorts and borks; ad libbed at his descretion. My job is to be a Tender participant in this elaborate jouer à joue which is the Duke’s ritualist way of conveying “I am awake; therefore I eat” (incidentally he is also a big fan of the pork life 😋)

    It all culminates in a pas de burrées of sorts with him launching himself into my lap, then looking up at me with his Scampy McScampFace full hope, of which I managed to catch a non Blur-ry picture today.

    I’m also pleased to confirm that Scampy McScampFace ate his dinner so he’s far less of a Beetlebum… for the next few hours at least 😆

    Toy Story - An Affur To Remember

    Every night this guy carries a toy upstairs to bed with him, and walks into the room wagging his tail in anticipation of being told what a clever boi he is—which he is 🥰

    He has two Santa toys which are his year round favourites… the other night he dropped them both at my feet—guess he couldn’t decide between them so he carried them both ❤️🎅

    Knowing him, he may also be reminding to hang his stocking up, to make sure Santa leaves a tasty treat—or ten—for him 🎄

    The Name’s Muck… Lord Muck

    Double post from me today because this photo from our dog walker was too funny not share! I think it’s the pug in him, but Lord Muck’s mantra is “if it’s a kind of water and I fits, I sits!” One time he did this, it was so thick I spent about 5 minutes just laughing at the state of him at the front door while the dog walker profusely apologised, all the while he just sat there looking very happy with his chonky boi self 😂

    Now it’s rainy season, we have to do near daily baths and the Duke is rather displeased and indignant about it all like “Jeeves… I worked very hard on rolling in that mud and fox / sheep poop so it would camouflage me. Now the other dogs are going to laugh at me tomorrow because of how stinky you’ve made me with this thing you call ‘shampoo’ except there’s not even any poo in it!”

    Us Jeeveses are fickle beasts like that 😆

    Cat Dog Emotional Genius

    To have a pet and that pet feels your negative emotions and tries to absorb them all. But to have a stubborn cat or dog that pushes their negative emotions at you. Are animals really geniuses or is that a myth. Accepting that just like you have illnesses they do to. So who knows you may be a Genius.#Pets #Cats #Dogs #MentalHealth

    Happy Furriday!

    If there’s one thing The Duke has taught me, in addition to understanding that my rightful place is to carry out his bidding at his barking orders, is how to do radical self-care right…

    On walks, when he has had enough, he simply sits down and refuses to go any further. When he is sad, he lets me know by climbing into my lap, demanding cuddles. When he is afraid, he squeezes himself between my feet for protection and comfort. When it’s approaching dinner time, he borks for my attention to get me to attend to his needs. When he is in the mood for a bit of fun, he scamps, he runs, and jumps like it’s the best thing ever. On walks, he finds ways to assert his independence by following his own path—turning the act of walking into a game wherein he is the cleverest boi, who delights in having outfoxed me in his own pug-mix way.

    After he swims, he shakes himself off each time with the verve of a puppy. When I rub behind his ears each night and give him belly rubs, he sighs as if he is letting go of all the day’s worries. And when he sleeps, he does it enthusiastically—as if napping and resting form a part of his daily duties. When he is tired, nothing can stop him from catching some zzzs… not even trips to the groomer where he has often had to be groomed while snoozing! If he is cold, he will find a blanket, carry it across the room, and fashion it into an appropriate bundle on which to make himself cozy.

    He does not reproach himself for not doing more. Instead he delights in all these small things like he is living his best life. He is the poster pug for radical self-care, and he has taught me that there is still great joy and life, to be found in doing less 🐾

    Prancing Into The Midweek Like…

    Some days my thoughts can go into some pretty dark spaces—but this little guy with all his joie de vivre, shines a light and reminds me that it isn’t all bad.

    And perhaps, most importantly, he reminds me to live my best life and enjoy every little moment. This little guy certainly doesn’t take anything for granted… except maybe that I can’t be his full time belly rub butler 😆

    Wet and Windy It Is… Sleep We Must!

    Quoth the Yoda Puppy, “The day is dark and cold and dreary; it rains, and the wind is never weary. Strong the force was with that poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.”

    Happy Monday all—Yoda Puppy and I wish you a good week with more light than dark 🤍🖤

    Some people have dogs…

    I have a quasi Jedi Master who uses his force to fight zombies!

    They are apparently all around our house, most active at night—and this being October and all, darkness is spreading across the land, the midnight hour is close at hand... Zombies crawl in search of blood, to terrorise our galactic neighbourhood.

    Hence his need for many naps.

    Like Anakin Skywalker before him, The Duke is also in favour of embracing his Dark Side, especially when us Protocol Droids malfunction, and do not adequately anticipate or cater to his needs.

    But the moment he senses something lurking in the dark and the beast about to strike, he rushes to my side like “Halp me Mom-Kenobi, you’re my only hope!”

    Yappy Halloween 🎃
