    Henrick and Bella both seem subdued today, it took a lot of encouragement to get them to eat (nothing unusual for Henrick but unheard of for the vacuum aka Bella) then they arent bouncing round like loonies, they are just lying quietly together, so whats going on, are they ill or are they growing up, why cant dogs just be sensible and learn to speak human.

    bless them, maybe they are trying to lull you into a false sense of security and when you least expect it they will be loony and zooming about (about 11 tonight) or tired from the weather warming up again?

    i hope its nothing and they are back to normal soon

    Is it hot today where you are? Tummel gets very calm and sleeps when it's hot, once it cools down he goes mental so i tend to take advantage of the heat and go for a walk(he loves the heat so it's useful as he tires quicker so i can do more recall training because he won't get so distracted) :eek: it usually includes us walking somewhere with plenty of sheltered areas so he can have a sit but he doesn't do it often :D

    I'd enjoy the peace while you have it ;)

    Button has been very quite for a few days. She's not destroyed anything or tried to escape from her crate She perked up when she got a great big bone the other day. I think it is just too warm for them
