Nice Weather For Penguins....

Ah, so it's a brand spangly new year then? And apparently we have gone back to an ice age. I think when Dr Who regenerated, he knocked a switch in the Tardis that made the real world revert back to a pre-historic time of snow and ice. I expect to see a mammoth plodding round the corner at any moment.

I have no real excuse for my absence from the blog world, other than the cold is terribly tiring and I've been sorting out my room to get my new bed in. I finally got it delivered yesterday, and put it up and now my room:bed ratio is defiantly leaning towards the bed side of things. It's giant! But very comfy. It means I have to be extra tidy otherwise the debris in my room will just cause a land slip and I shall be forever mummified in a pile of DVDs, cuddly penguins and art based materials. That will be one for the archaeologists of the future to ponder.

But yeah, the main news is this bloody snow. At first, it was exciting, I wrangled Xmas Eve off work because I was snowed in, and I was marvelling at the prettiness, and built another snowpenguin

but now it's not even funny. I haven't seen J since New Years Day, because at first he was snowed in, and now everything has frozen so even though he managed to get to work today, he can't come to mine because all of the roads in my town are sheet ice. I still reckon it's punishment because of people complaining that it's too hot when we get nice weather in summer. Heathen bastards.


In other news, my mum might actually let me get a puppy! I've always said that I'd like to get a rescue dog, but looking at all the rescue sites, most of the dogs are staffies, alsatians and other big or bulldog type breeds. So i know I'm probably feeding the industry of puppy farms and the like, but I'd rather get a dachshund puppy. I've wanted one for years. I don't want to just get a random dog just because I finally can. This may sound bad, but hey ho...... to the Ad-Mag...


I'm also back on the ole diet again, started yesterday. I put on my half stone again, but weirdly, no matter what i eat, I don't tend to go over 11st. Which is all very well, I have a weight that i can stick at and eat what I want, but i don't really want a huge arse as well, so, it's back to the salad. Yay. And I've got a bit of a sore throat and cold coming on, so all I want is comfort food, especially in this freezing wasteland! But I will persevere! I've lost 2lb already, c'mon!


For no reason at all, here's a very cute pic of a dachshund puppy

Dachshunds are cute little dogs, just remember they come with a whole raft of health issues, not least back and leg problems. They are also wonderfully tenacious little beggers. I used to run a boarding kennels so I got to know most breeds pretty well. If you get one be prepared for a little dog who thinks it is a great dane. ;0)

They also seem to be made up 90% of bladder, yet have very little control over this most major organ. I have friends with a dachshund who has known me for years, yet still pees every time he sees me.

Is that a puppy you have already or some random one? No matter what they are cute and like anything furry require a lot of work... If/when you'll get the puppy we won't see you again around here... boohoo...:-(

..but it is cute!

Love the baby penguin btw, nicely done.

St Jude - Thanks for your advice! I'll probably be getting advice from everyone I can as it's going to be my first dog and lots of people have said that Dachsies are wilful and have spine and legs issues. I'm arming myself to the teeth with info, training manuals and preparing to pick the lil dude up to put it on furniture and to carry it up and down the stairs. The next 15 years or so will be interesting!

Marius - I'll have to look into some sort of bung....

Stinkypaw - Sadly, that picture of cuteness is not mine. But rest assured i will be blogging about it constantly, you'll be fed up of my constant pics and proud owner ranting. Oh dear god, I'll be worse than a new parent....
