Beach walking

Today July 20 was my 1st beach walk after my surgery.  I feel pretty good but Dave put the cone on my head again yesterday when I accidentally scruffed my face on the furniture and almost made it bleed again.  That was a dumb move but now I am OK.  It is hot here and I am very tired now.  I am not looking forward to my bath today but it will cool me down I think.  Alanea said I deserved the cone so I better be good today.

On the mend

I got the cone off of my head and the 3 stiches out.  Dave said that I was a brave boy.  It is very hot here so I am staying in the house and drinking water.

Sad sack

I am not happy today because I had a little surgery on my eye on Thursday.  I am too hot and sore to have fun but I still have my appetite.  More to come but for now must wait for biopsy.  No worries, I will be OK.

New adventure every day

Yesterday Dave and Alanea took me for a car ride because I would not let them go without me and I know that I am welcome everywhere, unlike Old Dave.  They took me to a new sales office at Chateau D'Esclans on the route to Callas.  The old sales cave was rustic and small and I have been there many times but the new one is very nice with a painting of the Chateau on the wall.  Alanea was totally thrilled because she met Sacha Lichine the owner of D'Esclans, he is a legend in the wine business and produces some of the best rose in the world.  He is a big guy and very friendly with me.  Alanea bought wine and got a wooden wine box for books.  She took photos of the Hydrangeas that line the driveway.  They have very good wine, Alanea says.  After we finished at D'Esclans we went for lunch in Callas which is always nice and then drove home the long and twisty way.  I always sit on a chair and watch people eat.  The roads here can be twisty but we always get to where we are going.
Today I went walking on the beach and Dave brushed my teeth and gave me a bath when we got home.  I am feeling tired now because it is hot here but as long as Alanea does not move around too much I don't have to follow her.  The tourists are starting to fill the roads so I won't be going too far for a few weeks.

Alanea's trip to Paris

Well Alanea had an exciting time in Paris visiting with all of her friends and getting “culture”.  She really likes that museum stuff and all those restaurants!!!  I stayed home with Dave and relaxed in the back yard.

My excitement of the week was visiting the vet yesterday and getting stabbed (blood work) which I passed with flying colours and the vet told me I was “vraiment gentil” and gave me 2 cookies. 

So here are some pictures from the Paris trip.  A special shout out to Audrey (she is in the photo with Laura, Gene and her little sister Clara.  Laura told Alanea that Audrey reads my blog and wondered how I could type… Audrey “hi” to  you from me and some things need to remain a secret.

The other pics are from the Jacquemart Andre museum.  She and Nan had a lovely brunch in the cafe which has a Tiepolo fresco on the ceiling…..blah, blah blah.  The lion looks scary though.

Alanea and Dave took me to Arles.  Alanea arranged to meet our friends Julie and Tom from Saskatoon in Arles.  Alanea and Julie were room mates at University of Toronto.  There is a lot to see and do and eat in Arles.  We followed a big truck with my name on it.  We stayed in a very nice old hotel on the main village square.  There were pictures on the wall of actors in their youth, Brigit Bardot and Gerard Depardeau.  I went everywhere except dinner because I can be a nuisance.  I did get some ice cream though.

Resting now

Alanea is back from Canada and her trip to Russia is completed.  She did very well in Russia she is the only person in the whole world to sign a new client in Russia for the past year.  Mr. P cannot keep Alanea down for long.  At least that's what Dave says.  I went to the beach today with Dave and Alanea before Dave unceremoniously dumped me at Margo the groomer's shop.  If Dave thinks she is so pretty maybe he should go and have a haircut there instead of leaving me.  I must admit it tickles when she trims my dickie do.  I love the beach and Alanea has to pick me up or I won't go to the car, I really run at the beach but sometimes Dave has to protect me from big dogs.  I can handle myself but it makes Dave feel good to step up from time to time.  I will post a photo tomorrow of me with my new haircut, right now I am watching NCIS with Alanea.  There's a photo of old Dave in the village and a photo of Margo's car.  I like her but I don't like getting my hair cut.  That's me shopping at Castorama (the French Home Depot).
