Our Mad Dog and Her Wednesday Wag

Pets On Quilts 2017!


The day has finally arrived for the start of this year’s Pets on Quilts show, organised by the lovely Snoodles at Lily Pad Quilting (  Follow the link to her site where the entries will be.

Of course Treacle had to get in on the act as we have, occasionally, missed the show but not this year.

Here is our entry into the “Dog on Quilt” Category for you to hopefully vote for us!


Here she is lying on Youngest’s Quilt which I have just finished!!! Talk about timing!!!  Of course one picture is never good enough so here are a couple of others.


Youngest was assisting with the pictures getting Treacle to look at the camera, but of course she was looking at him instead.


Of course it is all too much eventually and you just have to lie down.  I am sure all these super models are the same you know, three pictures then they have to lie down!!!!!!


Here is a full length picture of Youngest’s quilt.

The party is open for ten days and then Snoodles will do a post about how to vote.  We thank you in advance if you vote for Treacle, we do very much appreciate it.  Have a lovely time looking round at all the other entrants and thank you to Snoodles for arranging this great event each year and to all the sponsors who have donated prizes.

Hugs, Susie & Treacle xx

The Wednesday Wag!


I have been sunning myself outside yesterday but this morning it was heavy rain so I have been keeping Mom company in the Den.  She is keeping a close eye on me so I don’t lick my paw!!!


Mom also tidied Eldest’s room at the weekend, well her sewing room for the time being and put Eldest’s quilt on his bed.  This is the end where I sleep when she is in here sewing and I really like the new quilt, it is lovely and warm and squishy!  Mom was too slow to get a picture of me on it!!!!


Well I have been to the Vets several times in the last two weeks so I bet it is time for me to go to the Hairdressers!!!  Mom has actually booked it for two weeks time, which she says will make sure my paw is all healed and just before we go away on vacation. 


Hope you are having a Wonderful Woofy Wednesday!


Vet Visit!

We were at the Vets again this morning for a quick check on Treacle’s leg!  She is doing fine although the Vet wants to leave the stitches in for another few days and she is back again on Saturday, hopefully they will be taken out by then.


This is the fed up look!  Having already spent a week in the hood, or megaphone or parabolic mike, whatever you want to call it!!!!  She would definitely be attacking her stitches if she did not have this on her head!


Of course it does not stop you from playing ball!!!  I will say though the bruises on my legs are starting to appear where she crashes into me, as she forgets she has got the hood on!!!

It has been lovely and sunny and warm today but we can’t have the doors open as Treacle is not allowed outside on her own!  Tomorrow they have forecast rain but hopefully getting better towards the weekend again!  I have been sat at my desk all day working but am keeping up to date which is great.  I just need to keep up to date with house jobs and I will definitely be on top of everything!!!!!! 

I hope you are having a thrilling Tuesday.

The Wednesday Wag!


Do you like my bandage?  I hear leopard skin is in this season?!!!!

I was not too impressed with my hoomans yesterday when I thought I was off for a lovely car ride with Daddy and ended up at my Doctors and I wasn’t even feeling ill!!!  I knew something was going on, however, when I did not receive my breakfast in the morning!

I had to wait a long while at the Doctors before they dealt with me but then Daddy came to pick me up by 6.00pm just in time for my dinner at home.


Here I am relaxing in the summer sunshine!

Mom says I would not have had to go if I had not persisted in licking constantly at the wart and making it angry!  What does she know!!!!


I think the pink leopard goes with my Airecut!

Mom has got to take me back tomorrow evening when I get my bandage off and then I will have to wear my collar so I don’t nag at the area again so it can heal completely! 

I hope you are having a better Woofy Wednesday than I.


Tired Treacle!


This was this morning!  She had not had her breakfast and had had her dinner at 4.00pm last night so not a happy littly Airegirl at all!!!  DH took her this morning for 8.30am and rang at 1.00pm to see how she was and they had not managed to do her little op as they had an emergency in and a busy clinic.  Anyway she was done at 2.00pm and DH rang at 3.00pm and she was in her recovery cage and all fine and we are picking her up at 5.45pm!!!  She will be starving by then.  She has to wear her cone but she is okay with them, except for my legs will be black and blue when she runs into me!!!!!


It has been doing this since 4.00am and not stopped all day and it is quite a bit cooler as well.  After the last few weeks of warm weather it is quite a shock to the system but the gardens needed it.  Tomorrow it is back to being nice again but not as hot.

I am steadily sewing the binding on!  It is becoming a marathon!!!  But it will be done by the end of the week.

I have been busy with work today and also getting things done for the quality submission for the swimming club.  I am doing well except for waiting for information from different people who just don’t do it and it can be very annoying!!!  Also busy sorting out the Christmas party for the younger swimmers and again trying to get replies even from emails is like getting blood out of a stone!!!  Hey ho

I hope you are having a terrific Tuesday!

Flower Friday!

We are joining with Molly The AireGirl ( for Flower Friday. 

We actually have some flowers in our garden to share with you.


This is our Buddleia, which is usually covered in bees and butterflies until I came to take the picture!


The whole plant

The Potentilla is just coming out.


The hardy Fuschia in full flower


Our neighbour from across the road brought me these lovely sweet peas at the weekend which she grows on her allotment, I just love the colour.  So I put them in a round vase and placed them on our dining table.  DH was busy in the garden and walked through the house to go out the front door and started sneezing, and he didn’t stop.  I was busy doing some extra cleaning and I thought it may have been the polish, which is the one I always use but who knows.  Anyway he kept sneezing and sneezing and in the end I put the sweet peas outside on our patio table.  He stopped sneezing!!!!  I have really enjoyed the flowers outside this week and fortunately the weather has been good so they have been okay outside and the bees liked them too!!!

Busy weekend as always.  DH is out tonight and tomorrow night doing his MC (Master of Ceremonies) job and I have done house jobs all day.  I did call round to see the Boys Godfather, whose Birthday is tomorrow, but he was out (!).  It has been very hot and sticky again today so I will be doing the basket of ironing tomorrow now when it is supposed to be a little cooler. Sunday will be catch up day and I am hoping to get the binding sewn on Youngest’s quilt.

The Boys are also having their hair cut tomorrow and DH is helping a friend with some sound equipment as well and Youngest is teaching at the swimming club tonight and tomorrow morning and Sunday morning.  We also need to get some work done in the garden.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Hugs, Susie x


Treacle has been inside today whilst I have been working as well, chilling in her basket.

I don’t know if I have showed you this before but I found it on Pinterest.  It is definitely in Britain but I don’t know where, but who could not like a Huge Airedale on the side of their building, in fact Treacle could have posed for this!!!
