I smell dogs !


Not a lot to tell you this morning apart from the fact that yesterday my people went out without me !  What is more when they came back I could smell they had been with two other dogs.....let me tell you I did not speak to them for the rest of the night.

This morning we went on the normal beach run-a-bout but it was not on the beach where the interest was, but in the air. There were thousands of birds circulating for miles.....uh the Guv forgot the camera though !

MERRY CHRISTMAS



It might be Christmas day but it was still an early up and out for my people and me!  What I don't understand about you humans though is your obsession with snow at Christmas, even in Australia I've seen Christmas cards with snow on them......so I'm treating you to a Greek Christmas, 20C this morning at 0900hrs on my balcony, but just so the Guv does not feel to homesick for the U.K I've built him this "snowman", well sandman really !!!!

Groving again !


It was back into the olive groves for this mornings walk as many of the groves now have had the olives harvested.  You see when the workers are in the fields the Guv will not allow me to run about there, real spoil sport as I just love running and frightening the locals.......I might be small but let me tell you 90% of the people round here are frightened of us canines!


"Come on Guv, hurry up"

A day out


I thought today I would just show you a couple more photographs from my day out in Methoni.  You see it's so near Christmas and I'm really busy trying to sniff out where my housekeepers have hidden my present !

A good walk......

click on photos to enlarge

Today was a very busy day for me and my housekeepers.  The Guv decided he needed his fur cut for Christmas and then it was off to Methoni for the day to meet up with some friends. Now I was quite happy to sit on the sea shore, but no the Guv wanted to walk around the castle, so I had to go as well!

Merry Christmas


It's nearly Christmas.......

I'm not allowed


I've said it before and I'll say it again, sometimes I just don't understand you humans!  You see the Guv never allows me to bring my sticks into the house and he brings a whole blooming tree in !!!!

I'm not talking to him !



So Sunday started as normal, with my beach run-a-bout, but on return to my "pad" I just knew something was up! The Guv & the Misses were going out and as I had not been "dressed" in my normal harness I just knew I was getting left behind!

Ummmph, when the Guv got back I heard him saying he had duck terrine, roast lamb & mint sauce, and bakewell tart & custard with a group of friends.  The point is I never even got a doggy bag!

I'm going to sleep out here now, and not talk to him !

It's time for beer !



Now some of you may think it's not really clever of me being able to get the Guv his can of beer, but the Guv knows I'm brilliant!

Probably due to the fact I get it from the next door neighbour's fridge !!

My "Wicca" dream......



A little while back my people went to visit my friend "Pal's" housekeepers.  It was most unusual for me not to go with them but I have since found out they have adopted not just another canine but indeed another feline!

Now making friends with another canine is OK, and I actually tolerate Pal's feline friend Charlie, but I have heard such bad things about the new cat they call "Wicca"....so much so I had this horrendous dream last night.

who's Olive ?


mmmmmm!   it's that time of year again when the Misses prepares all these black things that are grown around here on trees in the olive groves.  Me, I hate this time of year, all you humans in the groves sawing off tree branches and making all that noise with chain saws......what's more it prevents me having a run-a-round in the groves.

Mind you the Misses does seem to do a good job, quite a lot of work over a few days, then she has to wash them in salt water time and time again for what seems ages before she puts them in glass jars. Even then I hear my people say they are not ready to eat for a few months!   Just give me a juicy bone I can eat right away,  I'm easy to please!

Think I'd better behave.....


Back to Bouka beach this morning for the run-a-about as the Guv had to go shopping in Messini for some metal bars.  Now I'm not sure what he wants them for just hope it's not a cage for me !  Think I'd better behave for the next few days and play "cute doggy mode".....


Wednesday, 2 December 2015

No post ?


Well this morning the Guv went to Petalidi to post some mail to the U.K., he was not happy as the post office seemed to have closed down!  Not to worry though I got my beach run-a-bout all the same, and what's more if the post office has closed down I get even longer rides in the 'poppymobile" to Messini....YEH !

another day, another beach


It was shopping day today for my people so that meant a run-a-bout on Bouka beach for a change.  It was good to see that none of my canine friends had been dumped there on this occasion like I normally see.  Mind you it might also be that a person the Guv knows has taken them in and is looking after them.  I know he has nearly 100 dogs now to look after, all of them were abandoned by uncaring humans, many of them also ill-treated.  I really am a lucky dog!

This was not the case at Lidl though this morning, a new canine has appeared, clearly a stray and whilst not looking ill looked very thin.  The Guv gave him a bowl of my "meaty lumps" and a bowl of water. I hope he finds a home Christmas...........

Beach combing....

click photo to enlarge

A good day out for me today starting with a bit of "beach combing" but not on my normal sea front but a bit further away near Kalamata.  Then after my people had done their shopping it was off to the cafe near the tennis courts with them for their morning refreshments.  I like it there as there is a lot for me to watch over and I always get a good welcome.......

Very early beach walk

click on photo to enlarge

It was up early this morning for the beach walk as over the last few days it has been rather wet in the mornings and that means no beach for me! Mind you there was not much beach to walk on......the waves brought the water so high I had to be extra careful not to get wet.


The Guv was not so careful and I think he got his paws wet,
 well I had a good bark!

Not much doing...

click on photo to enlarge

There really has not been much happening around my pad over the last few days I can tell you about.  I've had a couple of outings into Kalamata in the poppymobile with my people, a visit to the Guv's favourite cafe and of course the normal morning beach walks.....

This photo was this morning run-a-bout at 0800hrs on one of the beaches at Velika.  Yes we are in for another warm day!

Paris 18-11-2015





We canines know that on earth we take second place to humans and correctly you humans mourn the deaths caused in Paris lately by the terrorist scum. However I must mourn for one of my own also, "Diesel" (shown above) launched an attack on the terrorists in front of his handler despite a hail of bullets from an automatic weapon coming his way......he did not survive he lost his life when the terrorist detonated her explosive vest.

We canines will always protect those who love us

My friend wrote it !


Not really much to tell you today, beach walk as normal etc., so I thought I would share a song with you one of my canines friends wrote !

Blue & beautiful



It was back to the beach walk this morning and as the title of today's blog says "it was blue and beautiful".  In saying that I am definitely NOT a water loving dog,  when the Guv takes me in the rain room that's enough for me!

Mind you the day was so hot here I was tempted to cool off but found a nice shady tree instead......

Pearl & plain....


This morning another walk through the olive groves near my house in Greece, and up to have look around this church.  I got there first so had to wait for the Guv (he's older and not as fit as me!), as it was up a steep hill.

It was very small and plain from the outside, but as you can see the inside is amazing........

Groving ...on a sunny afternoon


Well on a sunny morning really, you see over the last few days my morning walk has been through the olive groves that stretch for miles & miles near where I live.  The time has come for the locals to start picking the first olives, so I have to be a bit careful where I go sniffing!

I know the Misses is waiting for the black Kalamata olive to get a bit bigger before she gets the Guv picking and do you know the Kalamata olive is nearly as famous as ME !

My mate REX


Today I had a visit from my friend Rex and one of the humans he looks after. Rex lives next door to me and helps stand guard against intruders, in fact he often comes into my garden especially when I am not there and protects both our houses.  Let me tell you Rex is not a canine to be messed with, but he knows his place when I'm around!

Anyone for tennis?


Quite an interesting day out for me the other day, not only did I get to meet some human friends I had not seen for quite some time, I also got to watch a tennis match!

Mind you I often get taken to this cafe with my people, so much so I am well known there now.  They remember me of course due to my fame as a canine author!  (woof, woof)....

We also remember..


Today whilst humans march and assemble at cenotaphs all over the world we canines remember as well, not just the humans but the tens of thousands of horses and other animals that served our countries during many wars.  I proudly stand to attention in the Greek poppy fields and wear the poppy with pride in remembrance of them....

I'm watching them.....

click to enlarge photo

Well the Guv has not been able to find out if these canines in our village actually are there looking after some humans or if they are homeless.  Clearly last night they must have been cold as they slept on the warm ashes from the bonfire.......I'll keep watch on them.

Bang, Bang ..............




Today I am glad I am in Greece and not in the U.K.  Why?  Because tonight loads of my canines friends will become very, very frightened and I would as well because "Its Guy Fawkes Night".

I hate loud bangs, fireworks, gun shots and even loud motorcycles. When we do have fireworks over here in Greece at Easter time my people either take me out well away from them (that is not always possible), or they have a spray they use around the house that calms me down called "Adaptil".

So if you have pets and are in UK tonight PLEASE don't leave us alone and understand just how frightened we can become........

I'm lucky


Same old beach walk this morning! Mind you I know just how lucky I am compared to many of my canine friends here in Greece and indeed in many other countries of the world.

In fact this morning my people seen two very nice canines in our village that appeared to have been abandoned.  I know the Guv is planning to take a few photographs tomorrow and try to find out if they are actually "dumped dogs" or belong to someone in the village,  I'll let you know.

Wig-wam-bang......

click on photo to enlarge

Now this morning on the beach walk I thought I'd take a good look at this "Teepee" some summer tourists had built on the beach, not a bad job either but I recall the Guv telling me a story about the man who built his house on the sand, or was that the one about the three little pigs?  I can't remember!


I sure the Guv meant Teepee and not Pee Pee when he sent me in here!


Monday, 2 November 2015

I got left behind....


Yesterday was a bit wet so no beach walk for me!  However today was different, a bright sunny morning and it was up early and out on the beach for a good run-a-bout.  Mind you my housekeepers then took me back home and cleared off without me!

Now I find they went to meet a friend in Messini, so I could have gone (woof).
I'll get me own back tomorrow on the beach walk I'll shake sand in the poppymobile the Guv has just spent 2 hours cleaning!!!!!

Bark or bones?


click on photo to enlarge

I thought tonight I should get together with some canine friends and have a "bark about".  My regular readers will be able to recognise me quite easily, but I'm not giving away which canine I am !

So it's a canine trick or treat, or should that be bark or bones?

Market day............


Well it's very much back to normal now, starting with the early morning beach walk this morning in Petalidi so the Misses can go to the weekly market.

A bit of a grey day to start with though, so I think I will stay under cover on the balcony now we are back home....
