Let the summer begin!

Hi pals! I'm a very excited doggy today as I'm off on my holidays : ) Mum&Dad are off on their holidays to France so I'm being looked after by the Grand folks. This is great news as I get to hang out with Coco for a whole week (and get spoilt rotten : ) In the meantime here are some pictures from this week, its been another scorcher & I have spent a lot of time hanging out in the park with Mummy - she has been desperately trying to train me not to join all the picnics in the park - not sure why, everyone seems to be overjoyed to have a small brown dog licking their pots of hummous & running off with their bread ; ) 

caught in the rain - not a happy pup!

Walkies? you must be joking

And stretch !

Black and White Sunday No.4


Day trip to Cambridge

Yesterday Mummy and Daddy decided to escape the heat of London and take me for a day out in Cambridge. I love train journeys, I amuse myself by chewing Mummy's dresses and fidgeting till I fall asleep. I was desperate for a wee when we arrived so first stop was a wonderful big park then onto the Museum of Zoology which sadly we found was closed for refurbishment until 2016 - I still enjoyed seeing the HUGE whale skeleton there though. We then meandered onto Kettles Yard which is a fabulous art gallery and house in the centre of Cambridge- - at the moment they have a great selection of Christopher Wood paintings, definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. To finish off we headed to another park where I joined many people's picnics ( such fun) and I met a bigger version of me ! The folks told me she was a doberman but I'm sure she was just a large sausage and that I will be that big one day :) I had such a lovely day, I'm a lucky little woofer !

Cracked window etchings

Yesterday Mummy and I visited her friend  Sam Hodge who has a residency at Chisenhale Art Space in East London. For the past few weeks she has been producing a series of 77 etchings in response to the broken windows at the back of the Chisenhale building. I loved the work, it was clever and impactful - the black shapes seemed very sinister. I also got to walk over her etching plates and I also tried to eat the floor as it was very tasty : ) 

Do visit if you can - she is showing the work this Saturday 20th July 2-6pm -

Getting a sniff of the work

The floors good too :)

Gathering my final thoughts on the work
