Alfie has a hair cut and tries out his trailer

Alfie has beautiful red hair and he really likes the way it swishes when he walks.  But it does make him feel very hot when the weather gets warm.  So he was quite pleased when he had his hair cut.  It felt a bit strange to start with, but he is getting used it now and it is definitely cooler.  Mckenzie and Cerys both like it, they both said he looks like a teddy bear.

He has also been for a ride in his trailer – a little red carriage that is attaches to Thea’s bike.  The idea is that it will give Alf a rest when his little legs are sore – he only has short  legs and sometimes if he walks too far they ache.

Unfortunately Alfie really isn’t very keen on the whole bike and trailer combo.  And if Alfie doesn’t like something he thinks that everyone should know about it, so he barks a lot and really loudly, whenever he is in it!   You can see the trailer here in the picture and Alfie on the outside – where he is a lot happier.








Time for a rest

Resting his head

Alf always likes to have a rest after a walk and yesterday was no different. He was feeling particularly tired after a fun run around in the park.  The sun was out and there were lots of dogs to say hello too and lots of lovely smells to sniff.  One of Alf’s favourite things in life is a good sniff.

After his walk he decided it was time for a little nap on the chair outside the pub before heading home for dinner and a proper snooze.

Alf’s a winner

the winning shot

Alf was very surprised and pleased to find out this morning that he had won a photo shoot.  He didn’t even know he had been entered.  His best friend, Thea, had entered him into a competition and they were both really pleased when  he won.  He was chosen out of 70 other dogs.  Thea and Alf both think it’s because of his gorgeous red hair.   Alf isn’t really sure what a photo shoot is but he has been promised that there will be treats on offer so he is happy.

Alf doesn’t know it yet but he was due to have a hair cut in preparation for his big adventure this week.   He will be going to the groomers next week instead now.  Do you think he will like having his hair cut?
