Ambrose Does It Again

You may be wondering why there are no photos with this post. It is all Ambrose's fault. To be fair, it really is Barbara's fault. She was the one who fell asleep on the couch one evening while Ambrose was loose in the house and not in his crate. This was a serious mistake!

While she was sleeping Ambrose stole the little cable that goes from the camera to the computer and chewed it into 5 pieces! Then he fell asleep. When Barbara woke up and saw the destruction she said many HBO words. She knew Ambrose was the culprit because I have never been that interested in wires or cables and all the pieces were lying next to him on his bed!!

So now we can't show any of our nice pictures until the mini usb comes. She tried a card reader (whatever that it) but it didn't seem to work. I have some good photos to show you about a special package that I got from Scotland but they are trapped in the camera for now.

The big excitement today was that Barbara and I got attacked by yellow jackets! We were walking in the woods and Barbara wanted to go down a certain path. I did not but she said to anyway. There was a reason I didn't want to go there. Yellow jackets swarmed around us and stung us. Barbara tried to get the horrible things off me and they stung her hands. I got stung on the face several times but my fur is thick so the ones on my back and legs didn't get me. We ran back home to escape them. We each had to take an antihistamine and the swelling and the hurt went away. I am never walking on that path again.

EEEEE! That is super scary! Bee attack!

We get red biting ants in our yard and one time my poor Raja sat on a nest. At least she was smart enough to run into the pool and I hosed her down but her bottom got ant bites. Poor thing.

Terrible to have a puppy, isn't it. Tucker thought Daisy would never grow up. We are glad you were not stung too badly, and we can't wait to see your pictures.

How awful to be stung by yellojwackets. Poor Niamh and poor Barbara.

As for Ambrose, he is a bit of a naughty boy, isn't he...?

Those bees sound awful. I hope you're feeling better. Those electronic chew toys can be expensive.


Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh my God, that yellow jacket story was so scary just to read - I'm almost pleased there are no photos! (well, OK, I know you wouldn't be taking photos when being stung by bees...!)

Hope your cable comes soon!

Hi Niamh,
It's been ages since I've seen you (at Rally last time). Sorry to hear about the yellow jackets. Bummer.

Congratulations on your freestyle performance!

I've been on vacation with my blog, but just updated with a new post after 3 months off. Summer's great!

Your friend,

No camera for the yellowjacket attack? Bummer! Let's hope there is not a repeat of that event...

Comet and BLU said...

That must have been super scary getting attacked by all those wasps! We're glad you and Barbara made it out of there! Hopefully you both are feeling better now.

Tell Ambrose to only chew the things that don't affect your blog! :-)

Fenway said...

I am sure Ms. Alpha saw Tori in Salem. Had I known about her I would have instigated bitey face to pass the time.

And tell naughty Ambrose he will not earn any ribbons until he learns what is a proper chew toy!

Make sure you don't snap at any of those nasty bees. And make sure you give Barbara lots of gentle licks.

I will take good care of Bo!

Momo and Pinot said...

OMD, you and Barbara were attacked?? Glad you two are ok! Phew...

Ambrose, Ambrose... you've grown so fast!! and... what did you DO this time??? :D

Momo & Pinot


Oh no Ambrose!! Bad doggie. You sound like my brother Peanut. Once he chewed the telephone cable to our computer and it was put for a couple of months and nobody could find what was wrong until they had to move the table it was on and found out he haf chewed the cable almost in half. Our Ambrose and Peanut related? Their both big and black.

If both or one of you would like to be spotlighted on one of my daily doggie/flower post please send us a pic.

Sorry we hven't been around much but Mommy is getting old and just can't keep up.

Hi Niamh,

Haven't had an update from you in ages! Hope you're OK??

I'm still eagerly waiting to see your Canine Freestyle video! Please do post it soon! Oh, and guess what? I had my 1st Agility class last week! I was only going to try it out for a laugh but I had so much fun and did so much better than my human expected that she has said I can finish the 8 week course! :-) Come over to my blog to check out my video of my 1st class - it was mayhem!! :-)
