Another week at HQ

Hello my friends...are you well?...Really?....good..

....we have been suffering here at Bt HQ with the great British weather...its been cold and wet...and then just wet....and then cold...and then wet again...its very tiring for a dog...Miss Lola has been quite overcome by it.....

..I mean, look at this....how is a dog to cope with damp paws on a daily basis?....

.....our very good friend Sir Jack Spratticus sent us this lovely draft excluder....*whisper* I will let you in on a little secret...this was supposed to be a Christmas present for mum but the typist put it in a cupboard and forgot to give it to her! Pfffft....he remembered last week....and its very good at keeping the cold winds out of the kitchen...

...this is Sir Jack...he really is the most handsome of terriers....look into this eyes! Who could resist him?...

....Miss Lola opted for comfort from the weather by the fire....she has to toast every inch of herself of an evening....

....although she is protected by quite a thick layer of furs at the moment...ahem...

....meanwhile up in London the typist is having a different experience altogether...this is the view from his window...it looks positively tropical doesn't it?....

...so tropical in fact that he met this little fellow on the underground last week?...all the way from Brazil, via Rome to London...he was on his way to the river to meet his public and pose for photos....he seemed to quite like the typist for some reason...perhaps he smells like the jungle...

...meanwhile back at HQ, Miss Lola had resorted to her coat....

....and we even had our own Monster Blizzard!....1cm of snow which lasted until lunchtime!...

....we persuaded the typist to work from home one day to keep us company....this is us "working from home"....

....I don't know...what's a dog to do?....we are off skiing in a couple of weeks...I suppose we will have a different view of the snow and the cold then...
Woof...Clapton....brrrrr

Tis the season to be...BUSY!

HELLO MY FRIENDS...MY NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION IS TO BLOG MORE!! Hurrah...as some of you might be saying...

...at the end of last year there was some dashing about....we went to Dundee in Scotland...I took advantage of all the facilities at the hotel...

....but it was mostly work....*yaaawn*...

....Mis Lola stayed at home working on her tricks...

....a quick trip to Dubai....I got the big bed....

....but that was all hotels and airports....

....Miss Lola waited patiently at home....

....before Christmas we got some lovely cards from the doggies that we sponsor for Dogs Trust....

....some lovely pal sent me these presents as part of the Secret Santa we played on Twitter...

...and our lovely friend Miss Kirsty sent us a stocking each...!...

...and even Miss Lola got a present too...

...Cousin Tilly visited....unlucky furs got jailed after getting TOO muddy on a walk....

...we did plenty of cycling over the Christmas break...we sent the "King of the Mountains" out to keep the typist company on his jaunts....

...Miss Lola waited patiently at home for us to return....

...and waited...

...and waited....

...on New Years Day we went to see Grandma in Derbyshire...

...of course we found it very difficult to settle in...

....Miss Lola helped everyone open their presents...

...Cousin Lily came to see us...

...the Colonel and I had to celebrate with our pals on Twitter when border terrier Ginny was found again having been missing for almost 12 whole months...HURRAH!....we never gave up hope...

...Miss Lola was very proud of dedding a rat...even if it was a cat nip rat....

...it was grim up north!...

...an exhausting Christmas and new year all round!!...


Woof...Clapton....

Clapton & The Magic Lamp

Hello my friends....I am slinking in here with my eyes down and my tail between my legs...our poor little blog has been much neglected of late....but last night's fantastic Border Terrier Posse Christmas pawty gives us the perfect excuse to start operations again...

....for those of you who missed the BT HQ contribution to #BTXmas we would like to re-run our little pantomime ...and also to say that if you go to Twitter and follow the hashtag #BTxmas you will be able to see all of the other amazing acts who participated and also enjoy the raucous crowd....BOL...and we offer a special word of thanks to Mr Thomas (@thomasAterrier) and his amazing staff for pawganising the whole event for the third year in a row...

...so without further ado, I present Clapton & the Magic Lamp, starring Miss Jilly (@monteeandjillee) as Princess Jil-lee...


BT HQ Players will now present Clapton & The Magic Lamp, featuring the beautiful @monteeandjillee as Princess Jil-lee *daaahling ears*


In far off Staff-ee evil sorcerer Mar-lee wants a magic lamp from the Cave of Terriers but only a terrier of true heart can enter     


Jil-lee the Sultan’s daughter, bored of her life at the palace and forbidden to speak to common dogs visits the market


There she meets scruffy brown local terrier Clapton 

Mar-lee sees them, captures Clapton and leads him to the Cave of Terriers, promising golden noms for retrieving the lamp

A huge toot causes the cave to collapse but a magic carpet flies Clapton away with the the lamp 


Mar-lee attempts to steal the lamp and make Clapton disappear


Clapton rubs the lamp and unleashes Rock-ee the Genie, who says he will grant Clapton three wishes


Clapton uses his first wish to become a prince, A-Ladd-in, in order to be able to marry Jil-lee.


Mar-lee casts a spell on the Sultan and tricks him into ordaining a marriage with Jill-lee. 


Clapton appears and parades into the Sultan's palace as Prince A-Ladd-in, a royal suitor. 

Clapton whisks Jil-lee around the world on the magic carpet.    

Mar-lee captures Clapton and attempts to turn him into a squirrel. 

The Genie rescues Clapton as his second wish; Clapton returns to the palace and exposes Mar-lee's plot. 

After discovering Jil-lee's love for Clapton, the Sultan allows her to marry whomever she deems worthy. 

That was his third wish! And they all lived happily ever after *BAFTA ears*    


.....and best of all we raised £775 for Border Terrier Welfare...and there were also some donations made directly and a few more to come today we think....well done to all and HIP HIP HOORAY for Mr Thomas and his pawesome staff....

Woof

Sir Clapton Olivier....
