Saturday and we say hello to Marie in Scotland

Cody and Briagha are both in need of clipping/grooming, as you can see from the pic this week. I plan to do this over the weekend, so maybe next week I will send the 'after' pic. They often sit on the arm of the sofa like this, so it wasn't too difficult to get them to pose for the camera. I was just thinking the other day of affectionate names that I tend to call the dogs. For instance Cody gets called mister monster, monster chops, or Codester, while Briagha is usually puppy chops, wee girlie, or pupster (even though she's a year old now). What do the blogger call theirs?

Thank you Marie, I like to see to dogs a little hairy especially in the winter. I think we all call our dogs funny names, I call Fudge "Fudgy bear" Parker is known as "Man Face" Diesel is often called "Squeezle" and Chelsea is plain old "Chels" !

It makes you wonder why we spent so much time thinking of a name for them, only to call them everything but that name :-)

Mabel was none of those things over the weekend though, as she chewed through our broadband cable leaving us without an internet connection for 3 days until I could get it sorted. I can't possibly tell you what I've been calling her since then....
