Not too close!

I was one of the doggies featured on Cat Forsley’s blog recently. If you haven’t seen the post, you should take a look – you may meet a new doggy friend there!

I’m going to tell you about our log fire.¬†When the weather is cold and my bipeds are relaxing, they like to light a log fire. I’ve never found the actual fire particularly interesting, but the logs in the basket at the side of the fireplace are quite tempting! I don’t do more than sniff them now, but when I was a puppy I used to take one or two logs out to play with if I thought no one was looking. They always noticed! One of my bipeds would hand me one of my toys and put the logs back in the basket.

The cats, Mulberry and Pippin, like to sit close to the fire. Pippin is usually sensible, but Mulberry sometimes wants to be too close. When that happens I gently push him with my nose, until he moves away to a safe distance.
