AI YAH
Have that dog washed and brought to my tent.
I bet he could kill 10 rats a minute

Lilith said...

Beast, you have rats in your tent? He's not spotted any rats but he'll bring you a deer.

Lilith said...

Beast, are you Guido's "Harriet Harman" whilst he is away?

electro-kevin said...

Ahh - the difference between China and Britain.

There he would be Peking Pup. Here he is a blog celebrity !

Lilith said...

Does Pig make you hungry Kev? He has some really meaty thighs on him...

Wrinkled Weasel said...

Yes, I get the same thing with the chickens, and I don't have a telly either.

I shall have to post a chicken movie. All I do is shout, "Chickens" and they run so fast towards me they experience powered flight - especially if there is a banana in the offing.

Nice toes by the way.

idle said...

I'm sure I saw the Pig's great great grandfather appear on That's Life doing something equally idiotic.

Can he move his mouth while you say "sausages" out of shot?

Lilith said...

If I'd known the toes were to appear I would have changed into my Jimmy Choos. Do post your chickens WW!

Lilith said...

He has an extraordinary range of sounds Idle, but nothing resembling "sausages". He does however need circus skill training.

Daisy said...

he only does it because you enjoy it so much...lovely pig...absolutely lovely...

Newmania said...

You seriously have no TV ? Don`t you like films or sport or the news or anyhting ?

It must be like going back in time

Lilith said...

He's such fun Daisy. Your lot must have kept you in stitches of laughter over the years...

Newmsy, no, no telly. Yes, it is a bit like going back in time. I can't bear to watch the news, I get it all off the net.

We watch DVDs on the computer.

Daisy said...

oh they do lilith they do...right now (as the cubs are winning) one of our dogs (the rat terrier) has taken it upon herself to be the "cubs dog"...every time they get behind in a game my husband does this rubbing ritual on the dogs back while saying go cubs go cubs...and every time they get a good hit we tell her "good girl" and she dances...i know, we are sad sad people...

Trubes said...

Hi Lilith,
When I saw the piece of rope I thought Pig was going to skip....maybe that will come later.
I don't think I could live without a TV.
Do the Licence people hound you ?

Pig is terribly gorgeous...Is he fully grown now...such a cute dawgie.

Lilith
I already have a dear, hes called Fawkes and I buy him chocolate (+:

Lilith said...

And quite the stag he is, Beast :-)

Tuscan Tony said...

What a fellah! He does you proud. Thouh what you'd say had the line been full of Elby's expensive lingerie, I have no idea....

Lilith said...

Thank you Trubes. We are working on the skipping, thanks to your idea.

He IS so cute. And he is a little shit bag too :-) You have to be mad to put up with a dog.

Lilith said...

Daisy, I knew a Millwall FC supporting staffordshire bull terrier. She went beserk everytime she heard "West Ham" or "Crystal Palace". Total cutie.

Lilith said...

Trubes, the TV peeps are laying off me for the time being. I wish i could say the same for Barclaycard who try every week to get me to take out a loan or cash one of their 30% apr cheques....

The Vituperative Letter Writers' Guild...that's us.

Lilith said...

TT, it does not BEAR thinking about...:-) He's a laugh, and he STILL SMELLS OF BISCUITS!!!Ha Ha!

Trubes said...

Ahhhr.. Lilith' Darling Trubes smells of warm biscuits and turf when he's been playing golf....
He still can't skip with a rope mind!

Tell Pig there is a challenge there for him to get his dawgie ears around.

That is ..skip and play golf!


Give him lots of love and cuddles from Auntie Trubes. xxx

Scroblene said...

Doesn't that dog ever sit still Lils?

Incredible energy and I'm glad the biscuits (which keep cropping up in blogs these days...), are doing the right thing now...

Seems like we've been here before!!! Good to see and hear all this;0)

slightly anxious native said...

Hyper active doggie! What are you feeding him?

PS I do hope you and Elby are keeping up with the latest conversation chez Scrobs?

Lilith said...

Pig duly squeezed and kissed, Trubes!

Scrobs, Pig is either off or on. He does chill, but only when we are eating.

SAN, how do you keep you anxiety levels slight? Mine gallop.

The Old Tarf said...

Great video clip. Advantage of no Telly. You do not have to put up with the commercials.

What a happy little fella, he is. Pets are a great asset to a home. They tend to help make a house a home.

electro-kevin said...

Lilith - Pig needs fattening up. Bring him to me when he's good and ready.

(My giving him that bone had an ulterior motive.)

Elby the Beserk said...

EK. Pig's on a working dogs diet of white fish and brown rice kibble. The bag says dogs of his weight should get about 100 gms a day, which is what he puts down as a hors d-oeuvre. He's wormed on schedule, but however much he eats, he is always the lean black hound you know. The only other food he gets apart from kibble is fresh veg on a regular basis - carrots, peppers, broccoli stalks, and very occasionally some raw or cooked fine local meat - beef, even venison to his delight

Venison was good. Very dark meat. Black turds. Pig also regularly has a bone to gnaw. His terrier teeth destroy bones, and he produces white turds (to the delight of one of my boys, 30 years in age, saying it took him back to his childhood days, when all dogs seemed to get bones, and white turds were commonplace in gutters. I take his word for it. Bit far back for me :-)

Anyway, I digress, but venison and bone produces zebra stripe turds.

You learn something new every day.

TT, thanks for your kind words ;-> Of course, you mean the expensive lingerie I buy for L (from where else, but figleaves.com, where we sometimes spend quality time together x-)) )

Lilith said...

Old Tarf! Hello there! Yes, he's made a such a difference to the home. Now it is covered in small black hairs and shredded footwear.

Old Holborn said...

I'm throwing the TV's out next month. Bastard kids just watch American teen drivel all day and I just throw housebricks at it when Billy Bragg or Hazel Blears comes on.

Farqham Hall now has a brand new projector, a fuck off remote controlled white screen that comes down from the ceiling at the flick of a switch, surround sound (BOOM) and a rather neat little internet site called Zattoo which lets you watch TV live over the interweb

http://zattoo.com/

So, you poof commie bastards at the BBC can get someone else to cough up for your chocolate flavoured condoms next year, I will be receiving celebrity pig wanking LIVE featuring Terry Wogan and the fit blond bird from "My Family" for the princely sum of FUCK ALL.

PS. I have a springer spaniel and am exhausted.

Lilith said...

Splendid Old Holborn! I don't know where you get your energy from ;-)
