Mandatory Training

I'm sitting at the kitchen table early this morning drinking coffee.....the Prof is away and I have to go into work to complete mandatory training. In my day, mandatory training was always done in work time.
Not anymore!
Hey ho....Trendy Carol has just passed the window ( Laura Ashley Coat, frilly blouse, skinny jeans and pumps) and Terry from the flower show passed earlier. He gave me his best " I see you"  eye poke thing......the rivalry in the Great Trelawnyd Bake Off  continues.
I will leave you with a video to watch today.
I took it last night as I rested my croc feet.
Watch carefully....it's a play fight between baby Hippo and little dog.
The baby hippo pulls her punches so well

  1. Good morning, John. And the little one shows her belly knowing full well that the hippo will pull her punches. They are both gorgeous.

  2. Wash your mouth out John! She's not a baby hippo, she's a fine lady, and very nimble on her toes too when there is puppy belly to be nipped. Lovely, happy dogs- a credit to you x

  3. What do you mean - calling the gorgeous Winne a hippo? You'll have her fan club up in arms and after your blood ! Lovely video and much better than TV !!

  4. I'm just wondering, doesn't the little one get covered in slobber?
    Lovely to watch.

  6. Awww Mary is cruising for a bruising. Well done Winnie for being a gentle girl. I thought you had a big daddy bulldog on the sofa until I realised it was a cushion.

  8. Our training is always 'on the clock,' even for mgmt, because if they didn't someone would take them to court.

  9. So peaceful to watch. My current two don't play much unless daughter gets mum's fave teddy on purpose to get her started.

  10. Like I needed to see this !?!

    They are adorable. By the sound of it , it is so serious, by the look of it , it makes you want to have a house full of puppies :)
    I want a pup.

  13. Lovely to watch them playing together. I like when Mary thinks she may have nipped a bit to hard she licks it better and the game continues.

    Winnie is being very careful for such a big and heavy dog and it looks like they have finally found a level playing field with the games, no more sore bits for Winnie ... thank goodness.

  14. Mary must know that if Winnie got serious, she could really clean her clock. Winnie is a good teacher. Cute video!
