Lots of cappuccinos, weekend walkies & doggies don their winter jerseys

There was so much love for our recent doggie walkies pics that this past weekend we stored up our energy and went for an even longer trot around the block than last time. Sadly we didn’t get to a single milkshake for me (gasp!) but we did fit in lots of relaxing things, as you’ll see below…

Sunday, 26 July 2015: Long doggie walks, perfect Italian breakfasts

Sunday dawned brighter and sunnier than Saturday, so we all trotted off for nice long walkies around the suburb. This is typical doggie walkies expressions - Bertie with tongue happily lolling out, Bassie sniffing politely at the ground.

On our way into Woodstock on Tuesday we spotted an odd grey cloud hanging over Woodstock - by the time I decided to take a photo it had mostly dissolved away, but you can still see remnants above the Walton's building.

And of course, to end off, a cappuccino for me. Not often that you get a chocolate powdered one, these days.

Early morning dog walks, local rugby cheering and half-birthday curries

Early morning dog walks are best undertaken in Summer, when the sun is up before 6am – unlike Winter, where it’s often still dark and foggy come 8am. Nevertheless early morning dog walk we did, this past weekend. In addition to other things, as you’ll see below…

Saturday, 18 July 2015: Fancy coffee, local rugby cheering

Meeting minions, office chameleons and sparkly pink Zomato Party drinks

Philip, Winter is well and truly here – apologies if you’re not South African and didn’t get the FIFA 2010 reference. This past week has been bone-chillingly cold, complete with the buckets of pelting rain Cape Town’s known for. Luckily there were lots of happy moments to keep us warm and happy…

Saturday, 11 July 2015: Mugg & Bean brekkie, Minions movie

While R40's a bit steep for a glass of hot choc, I', sure it's delicious. My cappuccino, at half the price, did just as good a job of waking me up.

He's real! We caught this little critter trying to dodge our attention in a tree outside our office building on Tuesday. I didn't sing 'Karma chameleon' to him... at least, not loud enough for anyone else to hear :)

PS: Click here if you missed my update from earlier today, featuring the doggies’ views on their recent special delivery from Hill’s.

Bassie and Bertie blog about Hill’s Lazy Beds and special foodies

As promised last week, this is a special blog post as translated to me by the doggies – they don’t speak person very well, it’s mainly Minions-style mumbles. The experience they’d like to share all relates to a package that was delivered especially for the two of them. And so, without further ado, see their thoughts below on the special Hill’s Ideal Balance Food and Hill’s Lazy Bed pouch they’ve been trying out for a few weeks…

This is what we got from the nice people at Hill's Pet Nutrition SA. They delivered it to Daddy's work. Mommy's name was on the tag as the people at daddy's work don't know us.
This is what we got from the nice people at Hill’s Pet Nutrition SA. They delivered it to Daddy’s work. Mommy’s name was on the tag as the people at Daddy’s work don’t know us so they might have thrown it away if they didn’t get a response on calling out ‘Package for Bassie and Bertie’. We’re glad they didn’t.
I jumped straight in. I sat nicely. It was warm and comfy. Then Mommy said I must let my sister try it, so I hopped out because I am a Good Boy.
This is the Hill’s Lazy Bed pouch, especially for small doggies like us. Bigger doggies can try a big puffy pillow instead. I jumped straight in. I sat nicely. I was happy because it was warm and comfy.
When I thought about it, I was surprised I fit as the Hill's Lazy Bed pouch is for small dogs only and I thought I was a big doggie. Then Mommy said I must let my sister try it, so I hopped out because I am a Good Boy.

I don’t like the Lazy Pouch because I only got my turn to sit in it after my brother. He always pushes ahead of me. He’s not a Good Boy.

Before we knew it, Suppertime was here, and Daddy said we could try ALL the things. We didn’t believe him, but he said it would all be healthy and wholesome as the ingredients are perfectly balanced, so we were allowed. The kibble is the flavour of salmon, a healthy pink fish we’ve never seen, and there are some vegetables and vitamins and minerals included. Plus the ‘Healthy Naturals’ treats are ‘turkey and cranberry’, yummy things we didn’t know about before.
This part we were very excited about - look at all the nice food we got to try! Mommy was trying to hold us back so this photo is a bit blurry. Is our fault. Oops.

We tried to be patient but it smelled so good we impatiently raised our paws and said ‘Mmmm!’ to rush Daddy along, in case he forgot it was actually for us and that he wasn’t to try it himself because he’s not a doggie.
Because the foodies rested in the bag when it was wrapped up for us, the Lazy Pouch smells like all the foodies. I love the foodies. So when I nap in the Lazy Bed pouch I lick it when I think Mommy isn't looking.

Show this blog post to your furry critters. If they tell you they would also like to try the Hill’s Science Plan or Ideal Balance foodies, or even the Hill’s Lazy Bed pouch or the giant pillows for bigger doggies, try your nearest vet shop or contact Hill’s directly by clicking here.

That’s all, folks… Bassie and Bertie would love to try other treats and doggie goodies, let me know if you’d like to get in touch with them and I’d be happy to translate on your/their behalf. :)

Breakfasts on bread boards and new early morning offices

In this week’s highlights you get an insider’s glimpse of the new Bizcommunity offices, post-week drinks with colleagues at the Fat Cactus, winter mid-week evening half-price curries with husband and more! See below…
