So the sunshine has finally arrived at long last! If this keeps up, the BBQ will have to put in an appearance pretty soon! This sudden change to warm weather and blue skies, spurred me on to do a spot of spring cleaning today (at long last!) so I decided to spruce up my kitchen with my sample of Zoflora Bluebell Woods Disinfectant - (please see Reviews page, for my review on this lovely product). After transforming my kitchen into a gleaming, freshly-scented paradise, I felt compelled to go via the woods, when walking the dogs, to further enjoy the real 'carpet' of bluebells that stretch as far as the eye can see! So despite the scorching sunshine, I donned my wellies as usual - yes, yes! - bluebells there may be in those woods, but there's also dog-poo lurking in the growing greenery on the woodland floor! If you've read my earlier posts, you'll know about my dog-poo phobia! Perish the thought of treading in any 'nasty' stuff and ruining my good mood - however I saw one of my dogs accidentally step in a pile whilst foraging about - aargghh! - don't worry though, I'm not about to get welly boots for my dogs to wear too, they just have to wipe their feet on the grass and job's done!

Sorry but a rant is nigh!! Who in their right mind smashes a beer bottle into the grass in a public park, where children and dogs run about?!! I've lost count of the number of times I've had to stop and pick up pieces of glass bottle, to prevent some poor innocent child or dog from becoming terribly injured from the debris left by some selfish idiot! While I'm at it, why do people think it's acceptable to leave behind all their drinks bottles and food rubbish after watching a football match on the playing fields? The pitch is literally marked out by a rectangle-shape trail of litter, post-match - just who do these people think is going to pick up after them? And leaving chicken bones in the fast food rubbish is very dangerous for dogs that naturally go scavenging through the rubbish left behind after some moron's feast! Aargh!!! Well here's a thought - I wonder what their houses are like if they are that averse to picking up their rubbish - yuk!! Lazy so and so's!! (hey that's mild for me!!) :o))

Yes the pooches had a lovely day of being pampered! Instead of doing the housework, I decided my dogs' personal hygiene was more important! They had their ears cleaned out - no more potatoes growing in there! Teethies cleaned!! Toenails clipped!! Pretty little girls!! Before anyone thinks otherwise - my dogs are real 'doggy' dogs - they don't suffer being dressed up in clothes or bling-bling! They roll in fox-poo and eat revolting things they find on their walks. They lick their bums and eat their own sick straight after! ...and the things I've had to clear up in my time! Long gone is my phobia of sick and poo - (but only when it concerns my own!! I still wear wellies all year round - see my first posts for this to make sense! - it's true what they say about you only being able to cope with your own baby's mess and not that of others!) They get a bath from year to year using baby shampoo, but on the whole, don't smell of horrible dog-smell. Their dogginess shines through and what may horrify the average non-dog-owner, I find completely normal 'cos they are dogs at the end of the day! I spare a thought for all those little handbag dogs who are denied the enjoyment of being a dog - just makes me chuckle to imagine them farting and licking their bums and sticking two fingers up at their owners when they leave the room at the indignity of being polished and preened and dressed up in a ballerina tutu or whatever costume their owners impose on them!!
