Katie and Grace

Hello, we are two sighthounds who like to blog and Tweet.

I am Katie Whippet - I am a brindle and white whippet, who likes to sleep and eat. I do have some duties, I keep the sofa safe, bark at the bin men, steal and hide shoes and help the puppy evict cats from our garden.

I am Grace Puppy - I am Grace Puppy - I am not actually a puppy any more, but, because I am young, Katie Whippet calls me puppy. I like to whine and play. My duties are keeping watch for cats in the garden.

We live with Mummy, and two cats, Yazz Cat and Tom Cat and like to tell everyone about what we are getting up to.

Mummy did be askings 'what I am doing?'

I do be sayings, 'I do be doings what I am doings.'

'I am not doings what I am not be doings.'

Grace puppy logic

Puddle Watch!

We do be back on Puddle Watch (Like Crime Watch, only for puddles)

Mummy do beings very lazy and is uploading the photos on to the iPad, so we do being restricted on posting captions with the piccies.

So, we do be explainings heres.

Firstly our walkings do be stoppings because of invasion of Deep Puddle - we could not be gettings around hims, even if we did goings in to the field (which, after yesterday - Ooo, you don't be knowings about yesterdays, do you.......?)

Anyway, we could not get past, so we could not see if imposter puddle do be gettings bigger or not! Wellings, mummy did be havings a bright ideas of goings down the canal path, which do beings slightly higher than the track.

Well, we could not protest too much, because we would not have got a walkings, but we did be havings to be on our leads - which made use very sad!

We could not be seeings much of imposter puddle from the canal, but we did be seeings Little Brother Puddle - He trying to take over - and compete with Muddy Puddle at the moment.

But, Muddy Puddle, is back under Muddle Ocean - again! but this times, the canal and the river have joined in - so we stood and stared, quite astonished, because, Derwent river was joining in to the canal too.

Hellos - it do be Katie Whippet here!

Mummy do be sayings that I had better do explainings about What Grace Puppy Pants did yesterdayings. She did doing chasing a squirrel monster - she did do chasings over a huge fence into a field, near to where long puddle is - and she did not be doings comings back! I one point, I did do thinkings that I might have to be very proud of her because we did be thinkings she had got the squirrel monster - but, no, we do thinkings she did do playings with it - then lettings it go again. Anyway, she did do it more runnings around in the middle of a big field. Mummy did do opening two gates and we did walkings across a field, that, two weeks ago was under Muddle Ocean!

We did do catching Grace Puppy, who had been rolling in the mud and looked like she had been dragged through a hedge backwards - which she probably had. She did be very high - and bouncing about like a loon! Needless to be sayings, she was on her leadings all the way back - I on the other paw was allowed off - Hehehe!

Walkings today!

Helloings! Grace Puppy here!

I did be caught mid bounce by mummy and her camera todayings! I did be lookings a little surprised!
I did be goings on my lead when we went past Muddy Puddle, and did be stoppings mummy for a big sniff! So did Katie Whippet!
We did also be seeings how high the flood water did be goings, by the stuff it deposited on the fence near the rivers!
We did be seeing a swan on the canal, he did be doing hissing at us! Mummy wanted to be knowings what he did say, but, we could not possibly repeat - #Rude!

Rude, Rude, Rude! & More Rude

Ooo, we do being very exciteds, because todayings Mummy do being ables to takes us proper walkings.  Mummy do be havings very poorly shoulder due to a #bollard jumping outs in fronts of her bicycle when comings homes from doing workings. (We don't believe #bollards can move, so we think she wasn't lookings where she do be goings, we do be asking the bike but he is not saying anythings, which is Rude, who's side is he on?).

Firstly, we did not be doings photos of imposter puddle, because he has had all the publicity he needs, and if he gets too much attention, he might keep coming back - which is very Rude.

But, due to the rain we did be havings over last Fridays, Little Brother Puddle has been doing escapings!

Little Brother Puddle

Long Puddle is a bit boring now, because he is not as long, so we gave him a miss, but, we did be havings to do walkings down the canal bank to get past him, as he is still quite long and still quite deep in places!

Well, whens we gets to where we needed to be - Muddy Puddle, we find he is doings hidings again under Muddle Ocean - we do be thinkings agains - how Rude!

Muddle Ocean (agains)

So, we do be thinkings, maybe we do be goings to see how high the river is, but, no, muddle ocean has cut off the path, and in collusion with the canal, who is usually quite well behaved - he as decided to do escapings too! This too is Rude!

Rude Canal! Stopping our walkings

We do be thinkings maybe River has done escapings too - so we decided to turn around.  So, Mummy decided to do takings photos of Swans - Rude

Swans on the Canal

This all be very good, but she did not be doings any photos of me or Katie Whippet - so I did be doings whinings, because I was on the leadings, (please be noting - Rude!) because of the Swans - Katie did trottings off because she did not be doing walkings on the leads, because she be too lazy to be chasings swans!

We do be thinking that mummy should be taking pictures of us, after all, the blog do be our blog, not Muddy Puddles Blog! Which is Rude.

Me doing what I do best on big sofa!

That is better - I am doing my best snoozing pose!

Katie Whippet doing snoozing too
You do be seeings Katie Whippets new festive collar!  I have a red one, but, you cannot be seeings mine, as I like to hide it unders my furs!

Ooo, Grace Puppy Here!

We do be havings excitings news! We found Muddy Puddle!  Well, we think we have.... He do be seemings to still be hidings!  Muddy Puddle has lots of new friends at the moment.

There is:
Imposter Puddle

Little Brother Puddle

Long Puddle

Muddle Ocean

Muddle Ocean is where Muddy Puddle is hidings!

We dos not be ables to get down to the river because Muddle Ocean is hiding the path too - we could not walk down the side of the canal either because that is escapings too!

Escapings Canal!

We do be hopings soons that we can be doings proper walkings down to the river! With Christmas holidays comings up, we do be needings to be ables to doings extra walkings downs to the rivers and over the bridges!

You also be noticings, that Mummy do be takings us out in the light today!  That is because it beings Saturdays, and she did do stayings in bed for ages longer than normals!

Walk in the Light?

Ooo, helloings, it do be Grace Puppy here,

We did be doing walkings early this mornings - but it did be getting lights early too accordings to Mummys, because it did be quite clear in the sky - when Mummy be  sayings light, She means light in the sky.  Mummy do be sayings, as long as it is light in the east sky, she be knowings it will be light soons - we do beg to differ!

We do be givings examples of what mummy be calling light! and what the camera says is still blooming dark!

This is what Mummy calls light!

Katie says 'it is still DARK'

Even the moon says it is DARK

Ooo, Mornings, it do be Grace Puppys Here!

Imposter Puddle

You do also be seeings mummys light on her coat at the side of the shot.

But as you do be seeings, he do be quite big.  

We did manage to walk around the side of him on the higher ground, but mummy nearly fell over because there did be doing brambles in the grass.  Katie whippet, thinking she did not want to get here paws wet walking through the wet grass, decided she had to get her paws wet by walking though the puddle.

Any way, wes were hopeful we were doing to get down to see Muddy Puddle!  But....

Another one!
This puddle is not an imposter, because he do beings there befores!  But, he did be stretching all the ways down towards Muddy Puddle, so we had to turn back.

It did be doings rainings too!

But at least we did be gettings a longer walk than befores!

Ooo, Excitings - new Camera

Ooo, Hello, Grace Puppy here,

We do be beings very excited because finally, mummy do be buyings new camera!  It means we can be doings our bloggings!

We were also excited this mornings because now the floodings has gone downs, we thought we might be able to visit muddy puddle to be seeings how he be doings!

We did be disappointed on two counts:

One: we could not get down as far as muddy puddle, because his friend, other puddle - (who we think is a bit of an imposter, because, he has never been there beforeings) was blocking our ways.

Two: It was too dark to take a picture of other puddle, because we thought someone might have recognised him from Puddle Watch (the puddle equivalent of Crime Watch)

It do be showings that we do be havings to do our walkings in adverse conditions for Puppys and Whippets.
