Day 86 – Fresh Flower Bouquet

Flowers

Is there anything nicer than flowers from your loved one? 🙂 Ok… I can think of a few things better 😉 Buuuuut this is pretty nice as well 😀 I’m being so lazy these days with posting its not even funny. It’s constantly busy in life at the moment and work really takes me out of me these days. Believe me when you have a puppy and spend 9 hours in front of two screens all day the last thing you have energy for is coming back home to stare at a screen even more :/ I just love having my puppy cuddles now ❤ Thank you for the flowers hubby!! Love you ❤

Day 85 – Oscar’s Pedigree!!

Oscars Pedigree

It’s finally come!! Haha! Oscars 5 generation pedigree chart!! And wow all I can say is … wow! Lol! Some of these names can keep me amused for hours. So according to the pedigree Oscars name is Freddies Ripper (we have never chosen that name, but hey-ho its what it is). To us Oscars full pedigree name will forever be Oscar Peanut Louis the 3rd! And my lord even some of his humpty-dumpty ancestors were imported from the states! Imagine getting flown to somewhere just to have sex! Haha 😀 Gotta love the escort Boston Terrier lifestyle 😉 It is now 1000% official, all his papers and documents are in our names. Enjoy the hilarious names everyone! Whats your favourite one? I’m torn between quite a few to be honest ;P 

Day 84 – Hubby Surprise Salmon Ceviche Dinner Treat

Delicious Ceviche

OOOOOHHHHHH the hubby did GOOOOOOOOD tonight!!! Came home and what was waiting for me when I stepped in? Salmon ceviche made in two different (F*CKING DELICOUS) ways, crayfish salad, crab, chorizo/shrimp/couscous salad, and mango/peanut/chilli salad with Prosecco and a huge bowl of fruit salad for dessert. Omg – omg – omg and can I say omg again? This was just so perfect for this hot weather!! Not to mention I’ve been craving it for MONTHS. I had foodogasmns throughout the whole meal, ate SO much and am euphorically floating on cloud nine now.  This man is totally getting lucky tonight or any other night of this week! Amen, hallelujah, and bon- a-freakin’-ppetite!

Day 83 – Hummingbird Bakery Cupcakes <3

Hummingbird bakery Cup Cakes

This is the ultimate sin and luxury… Hummingbird Bakery cupcakes!! Had the privilege to spend a wonderful night celebrating a friends birthday and got to eat scrumdiddlyumptious cupcakes!! You can totally taste the heart attack in them, but you totally don’t even care because they are so good!  Which reminds me, healthier life starts from today! Hope you’ve all been good while I’ve had a mini time out from things 🙂 

Day 82 – Flying With Our Dog on Finnair

Flying With A Dog On Finnair

So lots of people have been asking me how we took our dog over from the UK to Finland via flying. To answer a few questions:

1) Yes, we flew.

2) Yes, he came in as hand luggage, which means he just goes under our seat.

3) No, its not expensive. Only 40 euros. and lastly;

4) Yes, it can be a bit complicated with all the paperwork required, etc. Especially on returning to the UK!

That all said he was simply the best traveller! All that early socialisation and getting him used to all sorts of transport really truly paid off! He didn’t mind one bit, not a single peep. He just slept and one looked up for a little scratch. Trip through the airport was easy too and for once I saw the security guys smile and be nice (I think we can all agree on how un-friendly they can be..). It was such a great trip I really didn’t want to start work again and go back to reality! More pics to follow from our little vaca later on 🙂 And if ANYONE has ANY questions on how to fly, etc, with their dog, please feel free to ask! It can really be quite a hassle in the UK if you don’t know what to do. I’m so happy we can travel with our little Boston Terrier 🙂 He’s such a braze good boy! ❤

P.s. Below are pics of Oscar in his SturdiBag! The bag is AMAZING. Finnair only has 20cm of room and this bag really used all the room possible! Oscar didn’t feel uncomfortable at all. If anyone out there is trying to think of a bag to get, I couldn’t recommend the SturdiBag more!! We have the large black version as you can see. It was so flexible, super light, and not that expensive. We paid £44.91 for it from Zooplus! It has tons of ventilation, great zippers that even lock so if you have cats they can’t get out, a soft pad attached with velcro, a comfy carrier strap, and best of all Oscar took to it immediately. The installation was minimal and as you can see form the pics below it fit in the plane just fine. I think Finnair tends to put pets in the middle seat as they are a tad “wider” in the foot space area. And because the SturdiBag smushes when pushed, but retains it shape, it simply becomes flatter, but wider. So our Boston Terrier still had plenty of room. Well, as plenty as a plane will allow 😀 Even us humans are sardines in them.. Anyway, if anyone has any questions about flying like I mentioned before, or about the SturdiBag, then don’t hesitate asking! Us pet lovers gotta stick together! 😛

Day 81 – Oscar at Our Summer House (Mökki)

Oscar at Mökki

Sorry for the radio silence everyone! Been on holiday at our Summer House in Finland in Rautalampi.. almost smack in the middle of Finland. So you can probably imagine how little of any source of technology worked there. We are finally back after one of the most gruelling trips back ever (thats for another time, believe you me). I thought I’d share a photo today that just makes me smile and laugh every time I see it! Oscar is slowling growing up, and as usual he was a hit everywhere he went. Here he is running through the house as the happy Boston Terrier puppy that he is 😀 Ah, I do love him, I do! ❤ Thank you Harvey for taking all the wonderful pics!!
