Busy Week - Lots of Fun

Hmmmm, where do I start last week has been great fun. Did my usual of helping Andy get up and get dressed every day and carried things around the house for him most days too. On friday morning he packed a towel and my ball thrower in the car for me, so I got an idea it could be a good day.

After a longish drive I found myself at a big sandy beach. I heard Andy say to his friend who came with us it was Norfolk, there were lots of other dogs on the beach and after lunch had a great time chasing and being chased and getting very wet and grubby. Finished off getting clean in some less salty tasting water, slept most of the way home. Its great doing all this doggy stuff!

Andy did a couple of talks this week about Dogs for the Disabled to some local groups, they always make a fuss of me and I usually get a bowl of tea and a biscuit. Thats after I've showed them how I pick up credit cards and coins, push the footplates down on Andy's wheelchair and put rubbish in the bin. I've heard Andy's talk a few times now and usually have a sleep by his side when he's talking, apparently I usually snore quite loudly - whatever that means!

Rest of the week was great several long walks with lots of swimming and a trip into Cambridge Town centre too .....

It's a dog's life :-)
