Now listen to me

Whenever I go out for my walks, I have to be very, very careful about my behaviour.  You see if I say or do the wrong thing then I may not get my treats.  I know I look great with this snazzy red scarf on, but don’t be fooled because I don’t always behave as I look.  I am a bit of a rascal and love to chase things, especially cat’s.  So the last time I went out  I practiced biting my tongue and being on my best behaviour.


Because  I know this always gets me treats!!


Loose Tongues – Loses Treats


February Already!

Hello Everyone,

Here we are again thinking where has the time gone.  One minute in India,  next home for Christmas and I am now getting ready for my next tour back to India!.  So I am still behind on my blog.  The sun  is still shining and a deep blue sky is always looking down.  The country side or campo as they call it here in Spain has the new crop of oranges, olives, and just to brighten up the scene blossoms are in full bloom. The valley is tranquil and the snow is sitting on the top of the mountains like icing suger.

Harvey is skipping around and looking very dapper, as you can see,  and likes to show off his new dance steps



man about town Harvey and I went for a walk this afternoon, and of course took the camera! Lecrin valley is such a beautiful place, we walked along goat paths, and said hello to the goats and admired the breath-taking scenery, the air was crisp but it was very warm. All this outside our front door, I sometimes wonder if it is all a dream. We live in a beautiful village, can you believe the total number of people living here is approximately 200 !The valley is awash with the new olive crops, oranges and almond blossom.




Hello, its me Harvey

enjoying myself

Hello everybody,  I went to the vet to have my blood checked , liver not a 100%  but she said not to worry, and I will be fine.  But I did have to have some drops in my ears, so I decided that I didn’t feel like having that done and I went under her desk so she would not see me.  Funny thing  was  she did see me and got on her hands and knees and came under the table to put sticky stuff in my ears. What a shock!

I pretended I was shy and let her put the drops in.  On the way out she gave me a chew or two or three, but grabbed them on the run as I was going to stay there a moment longer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was also told that I must not eat the cat biscuit’s.  You can imagine what a blow that was, makes my day to fillup on them to say nothing of what it does to the cats!!

A message from Harvey

R&R in my armchair

Thank you everyone who telephoned and sent e mails asking about my health it was very kind of you. I was justwalking home in the week after spending a lovely day with my friends at the finca when everything went horribly wrong.  We had  been having so much fun, my owner was taking photos, very important photos, and guess what we all managed to get in them! 


Just look,  Missy was on look out  duty  by the door,  while I had a quick try on the arm-chair, scrummy all soft and smooth and I could see the mountains through the window. Rocket only has little legs so he had to take frequent snoozing sessions.

On my walk back to the casa I ate something that turned out to be poison, 15 minutes later I was twirling around and shaking, my eyes were blood shot and I was very frightened. Thank goodness my owners knew what to do, they put me in the car and set off to the vets at an alarming speed  time was very important  because 30 minutes is all you have to reverse the poison.  Normally I like the car and can watch out of the window and see the mountains and the lake, but I couldn’t even hold my head up let alone sit up.  The road whizzed by and every swerve sent me to the next planet.  The car pulled up practically in the middle of the road and I was whisked out and met by the vet,  who quickly put on a metal table, while he put a drip in my leg.

The room was still spinning around and my legs had turned to jelly, I was very frightened but couldn’t do anything about it, but plenty of cuddles came my way and I felt tear drops falling on my nose, but not from my eyes, they were too blood shot.  I knew it was serious, and I wanted to be at home in my favourite chair with the cat’s and wishing the pain would stop.  One more phone call and the vet carried me to the car holding the drip in his mouth. We were going to the hospital in Granada  and I had to stay in. The tears I felt running down my nose this time were mine as I saw my owners leaving.  The drip stayed in for 24 hours and later the following day I was collected, what a relief.  I went to the vets office to say goodbye and unfortunately all the fluid that went in  during the night  came out with such a whoosh I couldn’t stop  it, we were marooned on an island while the urine swept past my paws and under the door.

Back in the car I experienced Granada city at night, lights flashing, people walking around talking, motor bikes weaving around and traffic lights that couldn’t make up their mind whether they wanted to be red or green.

The city life is not for me and that’s why I am taking it easy in my arm-chair.
