The Fourth Blog of Augustus Lazarus Cooke (Gus)
Here I am before Christmas, still wearing my puppy collar.
I see I wrote my last blog exactly four weeks ago today back in 2009. Happy New Year by the way. (I don't know what that means but I keep hearing all sorts of humans saying it and it seems to please them.)
Well, Christmas came and so did lots of visitors. I met four new people. First there was Susannah, one of my Humans' daughters – they've got three, you know, as well as a son, but they didn't have them all in one litter like me and my siblings. Susannah brought Nick along with her but they didn't try to sleep in the house which was just as well 'coz all the beds – and the caravan – were taken and there was only floor left! Bethan came to stay with Rob – his family's got a black Labrador as well, called Fidget. Then there was Dorothy, who is Mr Human's mother. He's ever so old so she must be ancient! The Humans were expecting Mr Human's brother and sister-in-law to come but they were late getting back from Ethiopia so I haven't met them yet. Anyway, on the busiest day there were seventeen humans, six of them quite young, six of us dogs and Monty and Winston Ocicats. There was LOTS of food but we weren't allowed in the dining room though we managed to sneak in a few times.
