Happy New Year

Happy New Year to you all. I hope next year is better than this one was, we had some ups but also some downs. A big wet slobbery kiss goes out to my friend Margeaux who is missing Jesse very much, I miss him too. And kisses to my family, the Dolyhir Clan, who also had losses in 2012. They have a very full house at the moment. Fireworks are going off here but I'm not scared of them, unlike the dishwasher and the vacuum.

So I hope the new year brings you happiness and lots of love. Goodbye 2012.

Friday, 28 December 2012


Mr Postman finally got there. My pressie reached Margeaux at last. Mummy said "better late than never" but I had wanted it there in time for Christmas.
So for those of you who didn't manage to find in on the tree, it was just at the top, under the star. This is a close up.

I hope all of you had a lovely Christmas/Yuletide or whatever holiday you celebrate at this time of the year. Lets hope the new year will bring you all happiness and joy.

Merry Christmas Everyone

I hope you all have a good day, eat too much, drink too much and be merry. My present didn't reach California in time, I won't trust Mr Postman again. Sandy Paws didn't bring what I wished for either, SNOW. I hope you all got what you wanted.

So sad

I'm so sad today. Mr Postman has let me down. He hasn't got my pressie to the special person. I'm going to cry. Mummy is trying to cheer me up, so has Raelyn. Mummy says "hold on Fizzy, it's still the middle of the night in California" So if I leave it to 10am over there, that will be 5pm here, so I will have to check my e-mail then just to see if he has made it. Today is the last day to get it before Xmas, not to mention it's Yule today.

Thursday, 20 December 2012

Happy Yuletide greetings for tomorrow.

I'm sad today, my pressie still hasn't got to where it is going. Hurry up Mr Postman, it has to get there, it's very special and it means a lot to me as I know it will to the person it has been sent to. Mummy had said she didn't know whether we should send it but I told her we had to, I picked it up and threw it at her. "Common mummy, post it already" I told her. I dropped it on her computer and it opened her e-mail. She couldn't believe it, it was an e-mail with the address to send it to. Now if mummy had sent it earlier it would be there by now. I can't wait to hear that it's got there.

Something special part 2

Are you still looking? Do you think this is the "something special"? Nope, it's just a bow.

He he, I'm something special coz I can balance things on my nose. I'm still waiting for Mr Postman to get to.....  Shhh, it's a surprise. As soon as I know it's got there I can let you know. I hope she (oops!) likes it.

Something special

Is it these? No, they are just a load of old balls.

Mummy had a word with Mr Postman today, he said it should only take 5 days for my parcel to get to America, it's been longer than that already. It took 2 weeks and 3 days for mummy's parcel to get to her friend in New Jersey, so that would mean another week for mine to get to where it's going. Hurry up Mr Postman, Sandy Paws gets his presents all around the world in one night. Perhaps I should have got Mr TNT or Mr UPS to take it. I'm getting inpatient now.

Wednesday, 5 December 2012


I got my tree up. There is something very special on it. I wonder if you can find it, sshhh though, you mustn't say anything.

Tuesday, 4 December 2012


Sssshhh everyone, keep it quiet. I've just posted my first xmas present. He he! I can't wait till it gets there. It has a long way to go, right across that big pond called the Atlantic Ocean. Then it has to travel even further to......... Sshh, I mustn't say, coz it's a surprize. I don't know how long Mr Postman will take but I wrote on it in big red pen to let him know it was very important and to handle it with care. I also had to fill a form out, luckily Mr Postman helped me but he was ever so nosey and wanted to know what was in it and how much it was worth. I told him it was a pressie and it was priceless, he told me that he would make sure it got there as Mr Santa is very buzy at this time of year so he was helping out. Isn't that good of him.

Talking of Mr Santa mummy found his site on the web and he has 2 reindeers there, you can watch him and his elves feed them. I didn't see Rudolph there though.
Here's the link.

I have to help mummy put the decorations up soon, she's at work all day tomorrow so can't do it just yet, but I will post photos of them for you.

Monday, 26 November 2012


This is a video mummy took of Bella fetching her ball. She is very cute.

Saturday, 24 November 2012

What a week.

Phew! I'm gonna be glad to have a rest tomorrow. Boy have I been busy. Mummy's been off work this week so first of all I helped her make some xmas tree decorations to send to her friends on FB, then she had a problem and some of her friends turned on her (this is what happens when you try to help some people). Then we went down to see Jake and his parents, Helene and Richard. They are very nice. I had such fun, we went for a walk at the beach, OMG! I have never seen the sea and dunes, I was up and down the dunes running around. Jake is a bit slower than me but I didn't mind, I kept coming back to check on him. His mummy cooked dinner which was lovely, I got roast beef and Yorkshire puddings, OMG!

Then today I went to Dansom Park to meet Bella. She is a Swiss Mountain Dog, so a cousin to us Bernese Mountain Dogs. A new friend Bella.

I've had such a great time, Bella was very fast but I'm sure she will slow down a bit when she gets older. She was very good chasing a ball.

Hope you all enjoy the photos. I'm going to have another sleep, I'm pooped.

Wow, what a disaster USA has had. Hope any of you that lives there are ok. I know some of mummy's FB friends are not. Well I don't know if you remember me telling you about mummy helping someone out with their vets bill, she said she'd not help anyone else. Well she has, this time though it's for real, poor Marcy has lost her home due to the hurricane and Janice has not power and it's been 10 days already. Marcy only has the clothes she left with but she did remember to take all of Mika's toys and food so Mika's ok. Mummy couldn't afford to donate much this time but she did and this time it's real. If anyone wants to send something to help just click the link to donate. We are only trying to get enough to pay for some clothes and bedding, obviously the insurance will eventually pay out but until then they both need some help.


The silly thing is they are sleeping on friends floors, they can't find a hotel that has vacancies, they are all fully booked.  Mummy told me of the time we had a hurricane in the UK, she had no power for just over 10 days but luckily the weather wasn't too bad (USA has snow now). And we had a power cut here when someone decided to try and steal the metal wires at the main station, we were off for 3 days that time again it was lucky it was summer.

On a much lighter note, a funny one really, look what I found on the web

I immediately thought of Jesse, he loved to chase bunnies and loved snow. Wonder what he would have made of this. I can just see him jumping up to try and catch it.

Monday, 22 October 2012

A long walk

Mummy took me to the woods again today. We looked for bunnies and squirels, but didn't find any. We did get lost again though. Mummy said there are woods like this over the Rainbow Bridge, so I tried looking for Jesse, but he wasn't there. He would have liked it.

We are here.

Lets go this way

Can we live here, they have their own moat

C'mon mum

Can't see any bunnies here

Nor here

Something's been here

This is lovely

I went straight to sleep when I got home. I had to go in through the back door coz I was all dirty, but mummy dried me off.

Saturday, 20 October 2012

A Rainbow has torn through my heart. My King, my Love has passed away, the angels came for him. I know he will wait for me, when my time finally comes he will be my Angel. Mummy found a poem for me, to try and help with the pain, to explain why he had to go. I will forever miss him, my wonderful JesseJ.

I will lend you a pup

I will lend to you for awhile, a pup, God said,
For you to love him while he lives and mourn for when he's dead.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three
But will you, 'till I call him back, take care of him for me?

He'll bring his charms to gladden you; and should his stay be brief,
You'll always have his memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return
But there are lessons taught below I want this pup to learn.

I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true
And from the folk that crowd life's land, I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come to take back my pup again?

I fancied that I heard them say "Dear Lord Thy will be done",
For all the joys this pup will bring, the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness each and every day
And for the happiness we've known, we’ll forever grateful stay.
But should you call him back much sooner than we've planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.

If, by our love, we've managed, your wishes to achieve
In memory of him we loved, do help us while we grieve.
For when our faithful bundle departs this world of strife,
We'll have yet another pup and love him all his life.

My poor love

I'm reposting my picture of me and Jesse coz Jesse isn't feeling very well, he ate something bad and it's upset his tummy. So get well soon my love. I hope this cheers you up as I know you wanted to go to the ranch and help your mummy & daddy close it up.

I'm also going to send Jesse this award that I was given by Misaki. I don't know how many bloggers I'm supposed to send it on to but I only want to give it to my JesseJ.

Dog show

Well mummy took me to another doggie show. We did have some fun although by the time it came to me going in the ring I was tired and wanted to go sleepy time, so I sat down and wouldn't move. I still got a blue rosette (2nd) and a lilac (5th) one. I didn't get any free doggie food coz I didn't come first. Never mind, I like the food mummy gives me, it's real raw food.

As I said, we had some fun. I nearly got a sister. We found this lovely little dog running around all lost. She was covered in foxy poo and insisted on jumping all over me and mummy. We managed to find some rope and tie her up so she couldn't run off again. Eventually her owner found us and she was able to go home. She was very happy and so was her mummy and daddy.

We also saw a group of dogs there that were also being shown. They had this really good handler, he pranced around the ring with the doggies and they had their noses stuck so high I wondered how they could breathe. They did very well and won most of their classes. I've never seen the like before. Maybe next time they might talk to me. Daddy was terrible at taking photos, he forgot to take any of me with my blue rosette and took blurry ones in the next show. He really needs to learn what to do.

I had to have a bath before I went, this time with water in it. I got mummy good and proper, she was wetter than me by the end of it. I gave her a bikit to say sorry.

Time to sit down

Can I go home now

Thursday, 4 October 2012

Oh, the humiliation!

I don't like the dishwasher, it is scary and makes funny noises. Mummy had to go and get me food and left me indoors with it, why oh why did she not take me with her. She couldn't find me when she got back coz I had to go and hide. In the bath....

Erm, HELP!!!

Put the camera down and HELP ME!

How do I get out!


Monday, 24 September 2012


I managed to get chance to finish uploading my story. So for those of you who couldn't read the PDF can go to the page Tails of Seasons Sunset and read it there. Would love to read all your comments on it and I hope you all enjoy it. It seems to end a bit abruptly so I might add something into it at a later date.

It's autumn

The leaves are already falling, so is the rain. The wind is howling like a dog and it's scaring me, it keeps blowing the neighbour's tree and I think it's coming to get me. It's not safe indoors either, what with the dishwasher making noises and I don't know what it wants. So I'm hiding under the table again.

Mummy's not happy. She said she got conned by someone, not sure what that means. She gave some money to someone to help pay their vets bill as they said they couldn't afford it. Well I know my mummy is a very nice person so when she thought this poor woman was in trouble and her dog might not get the help he needed she decided to help out, so did a couple of other people and they all got conned. This woman could afford it, she has a big house in an rich area with expensive cars and a swimming pool. She took the money out of MY vet fund. Well now she says she won't help anyone out again. This makes me sad, my mummy's a nice person and likes to help, mummy's sad too coz she can't believe anyone would be that nasty. So everyone beware of FaceBook friends, they may not be what they seem. Think I need to give mummy some loves.

Thursday, 20 September 2012


Mummy's had her puppies. They are my half brothers & sisters, they have a different daddy to me. Four little puppies. Congratulations mummy.
Head on over to the clan's page to see how they are all doing.

Monday, 17 September 2012

Oh No!

What! Octopus!

Mum! Something's wrong.


Mummy! Help! The birds, they did it.

Misaki, I should have listened to you. The birds have killed my octopus. They disemboweled it. Poor octopus. I only left it out in the garden for 5 minutes, I'm so sad I had to howl. It doesn't squeek now.
I wonder if mummy can fix it.

Friday, 31 August 2012

My story.

I finally managed to get my story finished. I still need to add it to the page but I have made it into a book that you can download. I'm going to try and put it up here.

I hope you enjoy it.
Please share but let everyone know where it came from. (and no professional publishing)

I'm such a good girl when it comes to going for a walk, I sit patiently whilst mummy puts my harness on. Just watch the video, he he!

Don't worry, as soon as I get out the door I start behaving. Then I check all the pee-mail on the way to the park, mummy stops and waits. Then when we get there she lets me off the lead and I can sniff and run around. I don't think I'm very fit, I get tired quickly and pant a lot. Mummy took me into the pet store on the way back coz I had run out of food, so I had a drinkie but the machine it was next to kept making a funny noise, it was engraving a dog tag for someone. Kim wasn't there :( I like seeing Kim coz she gives me my favourite bikits.

Checkin' the pee-mail

There's definitely something here

Hey! Wait up mummy, I'm coming.

Just playing around

Wow, there are so many places on this big wide world web thingy. I have been playing around on it, hijacking mummy's FB, and found a few programmes that let you do pictures, you know, adding things and joining pictures together. So I had a play around with a pic of Jesse & Me and this is what I got.

I know it's not valentines day, but why wait. I know how I feel about my Jesse, I will shout it out loud, whenever I want. He he!
I need to get mummy to carry on with my story, I have lots of ideas to put in it and I forget things very quickly, so hurry up mummy.

Friday, 17 August 2012


Well that's the warning folks. The reason, well the pic in the top left was taken at the crematorium. It is the final goodbye from Christel to her beloved Lucky. She passed over the Rainbow Bridge a few months ago. Christel is one of mummy's friends on FaceBook. She is part of the on-line Berner community.

Now, I know some of you reading this may also have lost a loved one, you will know how she feels. But, and this is the big bit, it gets worse. One person, yes just one, complained to FB that they found it offencive. What do you think they did? They deleted her account. Now poor Christel has lost all her photos, she kept them on FB as she didn't have a computer. She is devastated. She has made a new page under a different name so she can still have the support of her friends. But I would just like to say....FB THAT IS JUST NOT RIGHT. YOU ARE A BUNCH OF @*!$**@#~

If you want to share this picture (luckily mummy had a copy) you may do so, mummy has posted it all over FB (he he!). Lets tell everyone what we think of FaceBook.

There's a big black/white & tan Bear at The Rock, he he! 
Bear, who as a puppy was called Flash, went to live in Ireland, unfortunately his owner was no longer able to look after him (don't know why) so he has gone back home to Dolyhir.
Mummy, daddy, Bliss, Spotty and Dotty (Woozah) are all happy he has come back home.
Poor Bear, I couldn't imagine loosing my human parents, I would be so said. But at least he has gone back to the clan, they will give him lots of love.

Bear as a puppy at Dolyhir
Bear now, all grown up
It has made me think and now I feel quite sad for Bear. It must be so confusing for him. I would be so upset if I lost my home. I still remember when I came to live here, I was really scared and lonely, I wondered if mummy & daddy missed me. But my human parents gave me lots of cuddles, toys and food and made me feel so much better. Now I don't want to be anywhere else, although a bigger house and garden would be very nice ( so long as we are all still together, oh, and some puppies, yeh.)

Mummy is at work again tonight so I will have to go and pester daddy and play on his X-box with him (I like to bark at the zombie dogs). Then I think I will have a snooze and dream of Jesse.

P.S. I borrowed these pics from the clan's blog so go over and see what they are all up to.

P.P.S. I don't have a copyright on my site so if anyone wants to borrow photos you are welcome, just remember to put a link back to me or say where the photos are from. Ok.

I'm dreaming of my lovely Jesse J. I wish I was on holiday with him, swimming in the river and sharing bones. Makes me feel all warm and happy. Mummy has got hold of some little bricks which she is going to use to make a patio, she had to make 4 trips to Orpington which is about 8 miles away to pick them all up. She didn't have to pay coz she found them on Freecycle, this is where people give things away for free. I decided to stay indoors and dream.

So now I'm all happy and warm inside.

And I have a sparkle in my eye, just for my Jesse J. Mummy says we may have one last try for pups and if that doesn't work then she is going to adopt a puppy for me from a friend in Ireland. That is even further away than Wales and will be an over night stay for us. She needs to check first that there isn't any quarantine rules although it's still part of the United Kingdom.

Not to be

Sad today. Took a trip to the vet (again) this time for a pregnancy test. Had to wait forever for the results, only to be told it was negative. I won't be having puppies. Mummy says that was the last time, I will be 4 next year. She is upset but says she still loves me and I've had lots of cuddles to prove it. I will never know the delights of being a mummy, although mummy said she may buy me a puppy next year and I can love that as if it was my own. It won't be the same though.

Friday, 20 July 2012


I think I told you all mummy has facebook. Well she's been so busy with her friends there that I haven't been able to get on the computer for days. Well she's admin on a group there and they decided to have a Bernese Remembrance Day to honour all the berners that had passed away. So it was down to mummy to make a video and picture. It took her ages, she asked for all the pictures to be in by Tuesday eve, then found people had put more in on the following morning, so he had to add them in, this took so long. Everyone said it was lovely though, so I thought I'd share it here too.

First she made a collage of all the dogs to go at the top of the page (called a group photo).

Then she put all the pictures into a slide show, along with music.

I also heard some really bad news from one of the blogs I follow. K had been battling cancer for some now and she finally passed over the Rainbow Bridge last Sunday. It seems too many good dogs are living very short lives. She will be greatly missed.
I had to borrow this picture from another blog page as when I tried to save a picture of K it wouldn't let me due to the copywrite. I hope you don't mind me borrowing it Storm.

Blog awards

As I haven't been able to get on my blog recently (mummy's been hogging the computer) I thought I had better sort out these awards I have been given and the I can get on with telling you what has been happening here.

So first off I was awarded the "One Lovely Blog Award" by Raelyn at Thank you very much.

Rules for this award are to link back to the person who gave you the award...done. And the I need to send it on to 15 other bloggers, wow that's gonna be hard so I will try not to send it on to those who already have it, so here goes...

  15. These dogs live on a farm just like my mummy and daddy
Phew! that was hard. I'm sorry if I left anyone out, I will try and give you the next award.

Now Jesse sent me the Sunshine Blog Award so I will have to put my thinking cap on so I can answer the questions before I can post it on. My brain is already aching from all this writing.

On to everything I've been up to, it's not a lot, well it was coz it kept me very busy, another reason why I've not blogged.

It all started with me "coming into season", this is a time I don't particularly like, I'm sure all you girls out there know what I mean. Any way mummy took me to the vets, the new one Graham, and he stuck me with needles and took all my blood (vampire man). So it turns out I had to go and visit Night Night last Thursday. He tried being nice and did whisper in my ear and lick my face but I had to tell him that I was in love with another (Jesse), but he didn't care, so I closed my eyes and thought of Jesse. We had to go back on Saturday but luckily he wasn't interested in jumping on me this time, so we had a little play around the garden instead whilst mummy helped his mummy out in mending their telly. I love watching telly so I hope Night Night is happy that he can watch his now. Mummy took me back the the vets again today for a jab, I was very good and didn't yelp. She says we now have to go back in a few weeks to see if I'm going to have puppies.

Oh and I got a lovely treat when I got home from Night Night's, a bit of ox-tail, was it yummy or what???? It's one of the best things I've ever tasted. I hope all you doggies get your mummy's to buy you some, just remember it has to be eaten raw otherwise the bone will splinter and make you very ill.

Yummy Ox-tail treat.
Mummy has been very busy over on FaceBook, she admins for the Bernese Mountain Dog Lovers group page. They have decided to have a memorial day on 21 July to commemorate all their dogs that have passed over the Rainbow Bridge and mummy has been trying to make a video with all their pictures in. It is going well so far, but there are so many dogs in it. This makes her (and me) very sad. Mummy said she will post it on here too. So if you are the mummy or daddy of a Berner and want to join her on FB just type the group name in the search bar on FB  (you will need a FB account) but I would rather you stayed here with me.

I will blog again soon and hopefully have some good news for you this time.

Tuesday, 3 July 2012


Goodbye my Auntie Montana, I will see you again one day. I will try not be sad to loose you because I know there are many other Berners that have passed over the Rainbow Bridge and you are needed there to look after them all. You were a wonderful auntie to me and my family. Your spirit lives on in us all. Look over my family every now and again and know we will always be thinking of you. Good night and goodbye my wonderful Auntie Montana, till we meet again.  X

Too hot!

Whew! The weather has turned hot these past couple of days. I'm one hot doggie. In more ways than one. Firstly the temp here has been in the high 20's (C) and I've been panting away trying to cool down, but it's all too much so mummy went over to her dad's and borrowed an air cooling thingy. It says Artic 2000 on it and boy does it blow cold. I think it must be as old as mummy and it was very dirty coz grandpa can't see very well to clean. It's very big too and makes a lot of noise. I think Jesse would like it as I heard it's very hot out in California, much hotter than here. Mummy also told me there are forest fires in Colorado so I'm glad he's back home, safe.

Artic 2000

Secondly I've come into my season so mummy has been taking me to the vets, I like my new vet even though he keeps putting needles into me and taking my blood. Don't know what he wants with it, maybe he's a vampire, he looks a little pale. Mummy's hoping to take me to visit Night Night when the "time's right". Mmmm if that's anything like last time I don't think I'm going to enjoy it. It makes me feel really bad, it's not my Jesse :( . Last year I had x-rays to check my hips and elbow to make sure they were all ok, they were very good (4,3 hips:0 elbows) so mummy wants me to have puppies. I think I will be a very good mummy.

I have also received 2 more awards. I need to sort them out and decide who to pass them on to. Thank you  to Raelyn and Rose for the "One lovely blog award" and thanks Jesse (my love) for the "Sunshine award".

Silly me

I forgot, today is Father's Day. Hope you have a great day daddy. I found this card on-line, the picture isn't of me, but I couldn't help thinking you would love it. It can go to your human daddy (Tony) too.

No silly words

Just to let you all know that you no longer have to type those silly words if you want to leave a comment on my blog. I have done this because one of my readers has bad eye sight and finds it very difficult to read the silly words. I find it difficult too but that's coz I can't read. lol  So I hope this makes it easier for you all.

Where's Fizzy? Gone for a wander.

I went with mummy down to the allotment, just to give her some encouragement you know, not to help. Whilst her back was turned I decided to do some exploring and found some bees living in these funny looking boxes.

But when mummy turned round this is all she could see, no Fizz. So she called, and called, but I totally ignored her. She was very cross when I finally decided to come back (don't tell her but I only came back coz the bees were scary).

Mummy is doing her best with the plot but as she has hurt her knees she is finding it very difficult. She needs to finish digging over the end (under the carpet) and get a shed so I will have somewhere to hide when it rains.

Jesse has gone to his ranch in Colorado and taken bunnie with him. Take a look at his blog and see if you can find bunnie along the way. Jesse's blog. Meanwhile I am stuck here in the rain :( in dreary old England. How I would love to be with my American Beau on his road trip.
