{sad] Sorry for you and your loss Pets are so hard to get over but I have to admit I am scared of fish and that pic nearly had me out cold-seriously blush

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 25-May-09 16:46:05

sorry noddy

thou i did say he was a catfish, so clicking on a link that says colin - it would be a pic of him

<passes wine/chocolate over>

noddyholder Mon 25-May-09 16:47:45

I knew I just had to look am a huge animal lover but am scared of fish don't know why!RIP colin x

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 25-May-09 16:48:37

the rest of our tank are small tropical pretty fish

not scarey at all, i promise

Blick Mon 25-May-09 16:50:27

Precious colin!
Fleet of fin,

Much belove-ed
Yet cruelly covered

In polythene!
No polished sheen

Of oaken coffin
To carry you off in.

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 25-May-09 16:54:21

rofl - thanks blink

colin would be touched

bella39 Mon 25-May-09 17:54:27

Oh Blondie.

I, too, am utterly phobic and I thought that would be a teeny pic of him swimming but no it was a big dead fish and that's about the scariest thing I have ever seen in my life,

but I am so sorry cos he was your beloved pet. sad

Are you going to bury him?

FabulousBakerGirl Mon 25-May-09 17:56:55


So sorry.

Thanks for the heads up, bella. Saves me clicking and then fainting.

Ponders Mon 25-May-09 17:57:26

I suppose saying "well of course he died, he should have been in water, not a plastic bag!" wouldn't be helpful here...?

(Sorry, Blondes - poor Colin sad)

Blick, that is fantastic, can you always dash off an appropriate verse so quickly like that?

KingCanuteIAm Mon 25-May-09 18:31:51

Sorry about Colin Blonde sad

sad. Poor Colin. A t least he was rescued andd had a happy wee life.

KingCanuteIAm Mon 25-May-09 18:34:25

I have to say I am very encouraged to find out that other people are also scared of fish though! I am not phobic but I can't walk through those tunnels at sea life places and the sight of a tank of Cod swimming around makes me want to cry/heave/wet myself blush

I was also not expecting a dead fish blonde, I expected a before picture!

noddyholder Mon 25-May-09 18:38:19

kingcanute most people don't get it.

KingCanuteIAm Mon 25-May-09 18:41:16

No, I have been laughed at and ridiculed - mind you feeling like I was the only one and that I needed to get over it meant that I have been in a pool and feed fish and rays by hand (and a shark hmm) to try to get better...

I did manage it and I did cope so I am clearly not phobic but it was one of the worst days in my life! I won't be trying it again!

noddyholder Mon 25-May-09 20:27:57

To make things even worse I am only scared of fish in rivers and tanks not the sea hmm

mrsmaidamess Mon 25-May-09 20:29:34

Lol Blick. But I really wish I hadn't clicked on that link. I've just had fish and chips for tea.

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 14:01:38

ponders - not really no - but it did make me laugh

king and bella - i am very suprised at you both - i thought you loved all pets sad

i do have a pic of colin somewhere, will try and find a live one

next time, a pet dies i will post a alive pic of them

<wipes tear from eye>


I didnt bury him

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 14:05:44

Weeeellll... I am not sure fish are pets as such...

But I love colin beause he was your pet, does that count? smile

LittleMissNorty Tue 26-May-09 14:12:41

Aww sad

Do they live that long?

We have 3 Colin lookalikes......two of whom have just produced (at least) 8 babies that I found in the tank yesterday, if you are wanting another......

snigger Tue 26-May-09 14:16:01

If you didn't bury him.... what did you do with him?

He looks as good as a dead catfish can - do they have 'personality'? We have a goldfish and he's an aggressive little fecker, I can't wait for him to glub his last - but my friend has a tank full of fish that all seem quite interesting.

RIP Colin.

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 14:33:47

king - course hes a pet, but i will let it slide as i love you!!

littlemissnorty - would LOVE another one - but you are prob too far away - where are you?

snigger - he had a GREAT personality - he was very sociable - well as much as one in water can be grin

erm - should i say where i dispossed buried him

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 14:36:10

Thank you Blonde, I have a family member who is fish obsessed and his house is a trial by fire for me. He would agree that they are pets too grin

No, I don't want to know where he went, especially not if it involved a toilet. grin

Blondes! you do realise that fish need water. A plastic bag wont keep any fish healthy you know hmm.

Seriously, I'm really sorry to hear about poor old Colin, but what an age and what a size! He must've been a happy little Catfish

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 14:42:41

he was a whopper!!!

no wasnt down the toilet

Ooops! just seen that ponders beat me to that one! <solo is seriously glad she's not the only one with sick inappropriate humour>.

LittleMissNorty Tue 26-May-09 14:44:10

South East, Blondes.....I've got loads of the little blighters now.....they must have spawned somewhere....don't think they're livebearers. Got about 40 mollies as well....the shop insisted they sold me females only hmm

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 14:46:15

im south east as well


hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm - where are you to me - would love another colin - well maybe clive the catfish!!

solo - nothing wrong with sick humour - im love it most of the time grin

LittleMissNorty Tue 26-May-09 14:47:41

smile. I'm in Kent as well. Small world eh?


I'm in Kent too! not that that is important as I neither have any tropical fish nor want any atm!

Dd(2)has just looked at Colin and with a sharp intake of breath said 'woooOooow! pretty mummy'. She liked your now deceased Colin.

One thing that disturbs me Blondes, is your lack of thought as to Colins coffin receptical. Somerfield bags are just not classy enough IMO. If you are not going to use the best oak or even wicker in wich to hold his scaley bod, then at least use a Marks and Spencer bag. Personally, after 10 years as part of your family, Harrods would've been the choice of the Solo household. Ahem!


<solo wonders if LittleissNorty and Blondes are now CATfishing one another>


Snorris Tue 26-May-09 15:16:35

My dh is called Colin grin- I shall have to tell him he shares his name with a now-deceased cstfish!

RIP Colin The Catfish.

My exh was a Colin too...hmm he wasn't as gorgeous as Colin the Catfish though.

snigger Tue 26-May-09 15:55:59

Frankly I'm a little concerned as to the reticence regarding Colin's final resting place - you didn't <gasp> eat him??

FigmentOfYourImagination Tue 26-May-09 16:01:39

I had a plecostomus as a teenager, he was big too, about a foot. He was lovely. V relaxed

SamsMama Tue 26-May-09 16:05:39

RIP Colin!

It's always sad when pets die.

Am quite curious as to the final resting place of Colin's earthly remains...

Ponders Tue 26-May-09 16:07:39

Well he was a catfish, I expect she fed him to the cat wink


snigger Tue 26-May-09 16:12:07

Is there some intention to smuggle him onto the fresh fish counter - hence the Somerfield bag? Are you locked into some nefarious pets for cash deal where they get Colin and you get £4.50 a pahnd?

Break your silence, woman, where is he?

Justice for Colin

<dons Spiderman suit and climbs Big Ben>

BigEggDontFuckWithMe Tue 26-May-09 16:51:18

No - I know where he went.

She has a very large dog. That's all I am saying.

Sorry about the name - bit of a long story.

Bella x

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 16:59:30

Bella, that dog eats organic pork, I don't think colin would have got more than a sniff grin

noddyholder Tue 26-May-09 17:01:13

there are too many fish threads on Mn atm.I am feeling shaky but can't stop clicking Where is he?We need to move on! grin

snigger Tue 26-May-09 17:01:24

Dependant upon the size of the dog, a sniff could be enough....

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 17:09:26

Well, he weighs 10stone.... grin

Noddy, I have become a little addicted to this thread too!

BigEggDontFuckWithMe Tue 26-May-09 17:14:48

I know - it's pretty distressing from all angles.

Big floppy dead fish in a plastic bag for us fish phobes.

Blondie feeds non-organically certified fish to huge dog.

And a Somerfield bag - FGS!

snigger Tue 26-May-09 17:27:28

Come back Blondie, we need to know.

Or we'll judge, oh how we'll judge..

BigEggDontFuckWithMe Tue 26-May-09 17:36:15

Burial at sea, perchance?

Headline: woman swimming off Kent Coast finds large oriental catfish dead in her cossie...

snigger Tue 26-May-09 17:38:16

Maybe it's the full Native American number - Colin's on a platform in full regalia while they burn his fishtank stuff?

whooosh Tue 26-May-09 17:41:58

Oh Blones-so sorry,I remember your post the other day when we lost Jim the hamster.Incidentally,he ended up in the fridge for a couple of days ,buried this morning, in a beautiful coffin,with full 4yr old honours and lollystick cross.

Suspect Colin (we lost Colin the cat last year) went in the bin.....?

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 17:45:54


im almost pissing myself with laughter with all your replies grin

bella/dont fuck with egg - why the change of name?

<blonde is puzzled>

solo/missnorty - where in kent are you both?

Colin was DEF not eaten by monster puppy - i think tbh my great swiss mountain dog would be VERY offended if i gave him cold dead fish to eat instead of organic pork

ColinFromAcrossTheGreatDivide Tue 26-May-09 17:46:51

She's not telling you the whole truth, you know.


<<I am new to this ghostly catfish lark, cut one some slack>>

ColinFromAcrossTheGreatDivide Tue 26-May-09 17:48:37

She sold me to Sarah Jessica Parker as a shoe ornament.

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 18:01:52

Colin shock

I am not sure about this... I am not scared of ghosts but ghost fish???


Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 18:06:48

colin will not haunt me grin

ColinFromAcrossTheGreatDivide Tue 26-May-09 18:09:56



Y'wanna bet? grin

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 18:11:39

COLIN behave yourself - or i WILL feed you to the dog!!!

ColinFromAcrossTheGreatDivide Tue 26-May-09 18:15:20

<<fearful wibble>>

You were always like this.

I kept telling you I hated Kit-e-Kat, would you listen?

noddyholder Tue 26-May-09 18:17:23

I got as far as 10 stone and fainted

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 18:20:41

<Spray> @ Noddy grin

I must say I never expected this level of humour on a "my pet passed away" thread, you are an awfully good sport Blonde!

<passes out lacrosse sticks>

BigEggDontFuckWithMe Tue 26-May-09 18:27:15

My new 'hard' image is to help me deal with neglectful fish owners like you, you tart nanny.

See, if you had looked after Colin properly he would have turned into this:

Warning material of an explicit fishy nature


BigEggDontFuckWithMe Tue 26-May-09 18:28:47

p.s good work KC. Ever thought of becoming a professional dead catfish impersonator? grin

noddyholder Tue 26-May-09 18:30:13

Now you see that is ok as my eye is tricked and is telling me its a dolphin which i can cope with.Goldfish are the worst.......

ColinFromAcrossTheGreatDivide Tue 26-May-09 18:32:14

Blonde, I came back to say sincerely thank you for all the good times, and releasing me from that ridiculously small tank, and you're right, it was me that scoffed the tetris blush

This fish-ghost lark is hard work, I'm off.

<<flops to fishier ghostly climes>>

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 18:33:45


Why do people always blame MEEEEEeeeeee?


BigEggDontFuckWithMe Tue 26-May-09 18:34:30

<wipes tear from eye at Colin's message to his Mummy>

933 to go...

BigEggDontFuckWithMe Tue 26-May-09 18:35:08

You've messed up my arithmetic, KC!!!!!!


KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 18:37:39

Look here BigEgg, don't think a rock hard new name will make me scared of you, you will always be little bella29 to me <stern glare>

Especially when you try to pass off your missdeeds as mine <raises one eybrow>


BigEggDontFuckWithMe Tue 26-May-09 18:39:51

Aw, ffs, if I was going to do a dead catfish impersonation it'd be a helluva lot better then that shite one....

Wait a minute...

If it wasn't you...

And it wasn't me....

Colin? Is there anyfish there?

LolaTheShowgirl Tue 26-May-09 18:41:05

Aww, i'm sorry but you freaked me out!!! I thought Colin was your DH!

BigEggDontFuckWithMe Tue 26-May-09 18:42:52

Lola - she did love him, but

as far as we know

there was never anything sexual.

Perhaps Colin can confirm? Did you do the Blonde, Colin?

10stoneDog Tue 26-May-09 18:47:21

<large fishy burp>

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 20:10:44

rofl 925 to go

blonde is a good sport wink

lola - why would i put my dead hubby in pet section?

i was impressed with the fishy pic - bigger than colin

but size isnt everything - dont ya know!!!

whoosh - you are right blush

and so sorry to hear about your jim

we also put our hamster in the freezer

ColinFromAcrossTheGreatDivide Tue 26-May-09 20:15:50

I thought I'd swum into the light, but this appears to be the colon of a large mammal.


ColinInPurgatory Tue 26-May-09 20:15:57

I cannot rest. My soul is in torment. I must tell you all of my final resting place.

She spit roasted me for the mutt.

<ghostly fishy wailing, flapping and bubble blowing>

ColinInPurgatory Tue 26-May-09 20:16:22

oh feck...

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 20:18:34


<blonde falls in a heap sobbing>

ColinFromAcrossTheGreatDivide Tue 26-May-09 20:19:09

I'm a schizophrenic Catholic, apparently - one of me is lodged in the nether regions of Fido's digestive tract, while the other is in Purgatory.

When I said I'd rather die than swim through that blardy pirate ship again, I didn't think Anyone was listening.

ColinInPurgatory Tue 26-May-09 20:20:11

Okay then, it was more of a pot roast, truth be told...

<more ghostly fishy wailing etc. etc.>

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 20:24:40

though i did make a fish pie today for my charges .........................

colin sorry king and bella know what a FAB cook i am to my dc and to dh when i feel like it

though snippets may not agree - shame she never was given a comment how the pasta got there

ColinFromAcrossTheGreatDivide Tue 26-May-09 20:29:39

<<Told you there was more to the story. I can rest, now>>

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 20:45:16

every picture tells a story

is this a well fed dog wink

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 21:02:00

Right, I am back from classes, it now seems that, not only can I post whilst several miles away from my computer, I can also post in duplicate.

Gosh I am good grin

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 21:11:12

so colin is not you king?

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 21:33:14

No, are you Colin?

Otherwise, I am going for the usual supects grin

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 21:39:21

would i take the piss out of my dead fish shock hmm grin

bella39 Tue 26-May-09 21:41:29

Can anyone help on this one?


KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 21:42:01

Well, ok, possibly not!

Bella seems to be showing off her name changing skills tonghit though...


bella39 Tue 26-May-09 21:44:49

I amy be reasonably proficient at name changing, but even I can't x post with myself!

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 21:50:38

Oh don't come the innocent young lady, it is perfectly possible to post almost instantly with two names!

<realises that is probably not going to make my case stronger>

I mean, well, erm... that is what I was told... by the big boys who ran away...

movingnow Tue 26-May-09 21:52:25


bella39 Tue 26-May-09 21:53:00

KC - have you been Blackberrying while you were out?

Swear the oath on the dead fish, please...

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 21:54:21

I am wondering about the wisdom of keeping bumping this thread, half of MN probably think that someone is have a total breakdown after the death of a pet called colin and is being "helped" by pet "experts" grin

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 21:56:04

I swear by all that is Colin that I do not own a blackberry, or know anyone that owns a blackberry...

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 22:01:21


and yes poor blonde having all these helpful replies grin

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 22:01:58

ps blonde has a raspberry - is that the samegrin

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 22:02:21

Lol, I am sure you are much comforted by our tender ministrations aren't you? hmm grin

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 22:03:45

yes king i feel so much better now

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 22:03:46

AFAIK it may well be grin

[Sigh] I am getting a Joggler soon, apparently the O2 shop can't work out how to use it... how on earth am I going to manage?

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 22:06:43

whats a joggler

anything like a juggler grin

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 22:11:40

No... I don't think anyway!

The thread is here

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 22:15:02


blonde does need a new phone ..............

KingCanuteIAm Tue 26-May-09 22:17:24

Hah, well you are not having my joggler (which is not a phone but just incase you are getting any ideas) grin

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-May-09 22:22:45

dont you beleive how innocent bella is - she says she never goes on the sex threads but we ALL know how good she is at name changing so who knows WHAT name she posts under on those threads ...........

todays menu is chilli con carne smile

obviously homemade - my dc have never ben fussy eaters, but i came off that thread as all started talking about camping and decided not to get envloved smile

everyone knowsa that blonde doesnt do camping - obvly 4*+hotels for me grin

LittleMissNorty Thu 28-May-09 09:42:30

They're tiny atm....we only discovered them on Saturday....about 3-4mm

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 09:50:37

cool - keep me informed please - thanks

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 09:51:31

forgot to say

we had angel fish ages ago and had little eggs , but then they got eaten sad

<whispers - think it was colin>

LittleMissNorty Thu 28-May-09 09:56:38

We are thinking of buying a predator as our mollies won't stop shagging and we have loads of them.....and now little loaches!

You are most welcome to one - or more if you wish!

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 13:09:57

king - just for you (and bella)

monster puppy

when lying down and strecthing he is over 5ft - prob nearer 6ft grin

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 13:27:18

Shavenone, how on earth do you get him to spend so much time lying down? Mine seems to be hardwired to the mains most days grin

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 14:19:22

hes a lazy bugger

he does have his manic moments but generally if we leave him alone he just sleeps

hes snoring in the kitchen at the moment

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 14:25:29

We have made big improvements recently and he still does that "lezgo lezgo lezgo ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz" thing that puppies are so good at but he needs his mind (and mouth) occupied at all times when he is awake grin

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 14:47:31

KC - ours are older and <whispers> less intelligent than your GSD, so need less stimulation.

Yours is gonna be like that for at least the next 3 years - haha!

<stops cackling when she remembers she has a Dobe pup coming in 4 weeks....>

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 14:48:18

btw - like the photo, oh waxed one. Just makes me want to get down on the floor and cuddle him, or is that just Bella?

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 14:51:45

Ahh, yes, of course... My puppy is rather smart [preens] three years shock


<stifles giggles at the thought of Dobe pup>

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 14:55:09

Ah - but I am preparing an agility course in my back garden. Sadly of course, this cannot be used until pup is at least 18 months old...

<goes off to calculate 18 month dose of Prozac>

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 15:01:01

Hah, I already have all the jumps and he has been practising doing ramps [tounge out emoticon]

Of course it is a very small skateboard ramp in the local park, but still, the principle is the same!

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 15:10:24

I'm getting a tunnel



KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 15:24:06


I am going to get a flyover then [nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh]

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 15:38:59

No such thing - ha!

You could get bendy poles, though....

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 15:58:39

my puppy is VERY talented

he can play tennis very well

and likes the slide in the garden

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 16:04:15

I have bendy poles but not the ones that have a plate at the bottom, they just stick in grass so I am not sure how good they will be..

flyover was a joke.. you know tunnel, flyover, tunnel....

Shaven one, you know could make money on YBF for videos of large dogs and small slides... especially if you pop a paddling pool at the end grin

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 16:12:22

Nope, you still can't have a flyover.

Or a roundabout grin

do you mean pony club games type bendy poles?

<pats Federer, the Swiss Mountain Dog Who Plays Tennis>

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 16:14:30

i am not shaven

this blonde waxesgrin

i do have a rather cute pic of me and woofa but not sure i want people to see me smile

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 16:16:42

Go on...we've already seen your stonewashed jeans and cowboy boots in an earlier pic of Woofa.

KC says you're good looking. I reckon you're not.

Which one is right? grin

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 16:18:55

Yes, only smaller, plasticy and with some give in them...

I think I am going to add a climbing wall to my agility course [pokes tounge out at bella]

Ok waxy blonde, you can't drop something like that and then back off... It can't be about your identity because everyone who knows you will have recognised your dead fish dh grin

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 16:23:04

only a few people in rw know me on here as bhmf grin

i am not that sexy - but my dh thinks so

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 16:23:27

Cunning, KC, very cunning.

Yeah, and like how many nannies are there in Kent with a horse dog like that. Who shop at Somerfield ffs?

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 16:24:36

I reckon you're a right ugly old dog. have you seen 'something about Mary' ? You're the old lady with the terrier and the lipstick...

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 16:28:16

Well I suspect you are a fox

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 16:29:22

<do you think our good cop/bad cop routine is gonna work KC? And please can you be badcop next time? I hate being nasty...>

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 16:29:30

tis true

<blonde hangs head in shame>

i did have pics of my wedding on my profile for about an hour when i got married grin

i am very shy

if you are nice i will change the settings just for you two - but only for 5mins

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 16:30:26

takes a dog to know one bella


tell you what - i will show you mine - if you show me yours grin

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 16:31:05

i dont know anything about you 2 - but you both know lots about me

<blonde feels she is being watched>

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 16:31:29

Well, I am being nice, not like that nasty old bella... I think she likes being nasty to waxy blondes...

<stir, stir>

Sorry bella, you are just too good at bad cop grin

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 16:32:48

We know quite a lot about bella.

No-one will know anything about me because RL is a beach sad

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 16:35:29

can i be serious for the moment!!!

woofa has just come in from garden and face looks swolen

we have a bee nest (being removed now)

think he may have been stung - he doesnt look right sad

what should i do

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 16:38:45

Call the vet.

When puppy did this he said two piriton tablets and watch but the swelling was minimal, if it is bad or breathing is bad, put him in the car and get someone to call the vet to say you are on the way.

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 16:41:10

called the vet

said to take down now

gotta go and take 3 kids and try to get dog into car



wish me luck

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 16:41:56

Yes, call vet.

And didn't know we could chaange setting but will gladly show you my pics wink

Get well soon, Woofa x

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 16:42:29

x post - good luck, sweetie.

Woofa will be fine wink

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 16:44:13

Good luck babe, I am sure he wll just fill him with anti-histamines.

Let us know xx

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 16:45:38

KC - we can talk about her now, you know grin

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 16:48:24


<doesn't bite>

nope, it is no good, I am just far too nice to talk about someone behind their back.

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 16:50:06

Not even to say nice things?

Oh, I see - you wanted to say horrid things?


KingCanuteIArnt Thu 28-May-09 16:50:52

tra la la la la

Sooo... what have we here then...

Hmm, interesting, I wonder if that poster I have never spoken to before will get her pics out later on?

TheWaxedNannyIsFab Thu 28-May-09 16:52:36

Just nailing my colours to the mast, as they say...

KingCanuteIArnt Thu 28-May-09 16:54:44

Oh Bella, I can't believe that nice KCIA person would want to say horrid things, I have read a few of her posts ad she seems really lovely. One of the nicest around here actually. smile

TheWaxedNannyIsFab Thu 28-May-09 16:57:32

Hope the Blonde one is okay.

She is so nice and cares about her hammies and everything.

TheWaxedNannyIsFab Thu 28-May-09 17:09:41

<waits patiently for news of Woofa>

TheWaxedNannyIsFab Thu 28-May-09 17:14:13

<going for my tea now but doesn't mean I don't care...>

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 17:32:57

<waits patiently for news>

<tapping fingers, not unlike an expectant father outside a delivery room>

I hope he is ok blonde!

TheWaxedNannyIsFab Thu 28-May-09 17:55:37

KC - Woofa will be okay, won't he?

<chin wibbles>

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 17:58:48

He should be, bee stings are nasty though, especially in the mouth. They can cause reactions and so on.

Most likely he will be given anti-histamines and sent home as long as the reaction is not huge.

<a bit wibbly here too>

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 18:02:06


what a fucking nightmare!!!!

how do you get the dog who hates going in the car, in the car

answer after 20mins of pulling/pushing etc - you dont

i gave up - was in tears - had visions of a dog dying on me as couldnt breath

i just couldnt get 10.5stone of him even near the car sad

he isnt daft and as soon as saw the car he ran in opposite direction - pulling me with him - he weighs almost the same as i do

anyway to cut long story short

his face was so swollen, and eyes shut, and he kept trying to rub is poor nose/muzzle with paw

both of our 2 local branches didnt have any vets free to come out sad

vet said to me to give piratin - which i did 20mls - dont forget he is a big dog - i normally give 5 to my 6yr who weighs about 4stone

anyway after about 30mins left eye is starting to open and he had eaten some sains best ham ( i had to make sure airway was open grin)

he is laying by me at the moment, with paw on my leg

rang mb and gave her the update - she is on her way home - and i feel a right pillock that I started to cry down the phone to her saying i couldnt get him in the car

she told me not to be silly, and its not my job to look after him etc, and that i did the best i could - she also cant get him into car - only one who can is db - fuck knows how he does

anyway - hopefully my gentle monster will be ok - can have more drugs at midnight and again at 7/8am tomorrow

thank god tomorrow i am not working - i am stressed and need wine!!

i am a fab nanny and can cope with children no probs, and even phone someone to sort out bees nest after i found it this am

just didnt expect dog to get stung and prob lots of time judging by the swelling

thanks bella and kc

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 18:02:44

I know - just horrid when it is a dog you know. At least he is a bruiser...

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 18:04:09

x post - poor you, poor woofa. Glad he is okay though!!!

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 18:11:19

yeah seems to be

breathing is better now

both eyes are starting to open

<blonde lets out huge sigh>

i did ring db and yell down the phone to him that he needs to get woofa to be able to get in car EASILY

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 18:15:57

Is db woofa's owner then?

And yes, it's at times like this that these things become very apparent. Will he not go up a ramp at all?

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 18:20:58

tech db owns our monster

but he sees more of mb and me

but he gets into car (apparently) for db with out a problem hmm

no wont go up ramp - i thought i had said about that a few months ago

bloody dog refuses!!

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 18:24:41

Yes, yes, all right - you did say he wouldn't go up the ramp but that was a while ago and I just wondered if he was still not going up at all and was maybe going to offer helpful ramp tips but you sound a bit tetchy sweetie obviously the stress so never mind wink

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 18:28:36

im not techy

just wasnt sure if i had mentioned on mn that he didnt like the ramp - i am on several forums smile

any tips would be good, feel free to come and train him to get in car

are you near me? grin

he is now snoring on single bed matress on his cushion

vet said he may get sleepy - i said he is always sleeps grin

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 18:32:02

Glad he is ok Blonde, well done you for sorting him out. It is no joke is it when they do such stupid things and you can't do much to help.

I think db needs to put some serious hours in on gettting that dog to go in the car, first time every time. This situation it was ok but imagine he had severed an artery or something (which seems to happen quite regularly when at the furthest point from home on walks). You would have needed to be able to get him in the car and to the vet without delay.

So glad he is ok. smile

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 18:33:23

i never walk him - thats the dog walkers/db /mb job

i said i was more than happy for them to get a dog, so long as i didnt have to walk him

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 18:34:01

Okay, sorry for misunderstanding.

Not near you - sorry sad

With my older dog I placed her paws on the ramp so she could get the feel of it, and understand it would take her weight. I would also lift her onto the ramp a little way - not an option for you, I know.

You could also lay the ramp flat on the ground and treat him for stepping on it, then standing, then lying on it etc.

It is scary for them as they are having to trust you that the ramp will support them. Does that make sense?

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 18:35:01

whoops hadnt finished typing

any real emergancy

<blonde gulps>

and vet would have to come here and do house call and then mb/db would pay for it

just checked him and eyes def a lot better bless him

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 28-May-09 18:37:24

makes perfect sense to me

mb had told db he HAS to sort out this problem!!!

i dont normally even work thursdays - so has been quite an eventful day

on the plus side - kiddiwinks are fine - all watching tv besdie me smile

bella39 Thu 28-May-09 18:38:37

<passes Blonde a special sparkly cupcake>

<passes Woofa a big bone>

KingCanuteIAm Thu 28-May-09 20:17:43

How's the woof now Blonde?

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 29-May-09 12:22:00

he is ok - still sore and swollen but will live smile

got gp's staying next week and they have a huge great dane who loves getting into the car

our horse loves the great dane - so hopefully gp will try and train woofa to get in car after great dane

KingCanuteIAm Fri 29-May-09 13:03:00

That would be useful, a bit of positive leadership of the doggy kind grin

I am wondering what kind of lorry car you drive that will fit a horse and a Great Dane in at the same time though grin

Glad he is better!

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 29-May-09 13:08:43

i drive their s max - and think gp have renault espace with back seats taken out

hopefully the horse will follow the great dane in love - he normally does round the house grin

KingCanuteIAm Fri 29-May-09 13:24:14

Blondie, you made the roundup grin

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 29-May-09 13:41:25

whats the roundup?

KingCanuteIAm Fri 29-May-09 13:43:52

It is an email MorningPaper sends out regularly with a round up of a few of the funnier conversations on it. There are usually 3 I think and yours (this one) is one of them this week!

I can forward it to you is you have an email address you can give me.

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 29-May-09 13:53:17

i have it grin

just checked my email

how did i get in it - do people email MNHQ saying funny threads etc?

but it wasnt a waitroise bag sad

i normally read it - but i am FAMOUS

<blonde lets out a yell of joy>


did i ever say where he went [hmmm]

KingCanuteIAm Fri 29-May-09 14:02:06

I don't know how threads get in it, I assume it is just MP running around madly reading more threads than is humanly possible grin

Yes, I think you did confirm his final resting place wink

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 29-May-09 14:32:16

def wasnt the monsters tummy!! grin

i blame bad bella!!!

KingCanuteIAm Fri 29-May-09 14:37:16

That is usually best wink

So, shall we tell her that your thread got in to the roundup, my comment got into the round up but Bella didn't even get a sniff of the roundup? grin

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 29-May-09 14:39:06

oh def tell her!!

<blonde gets out wooden spoon to stir things up>

KingCanuteIAm Fri 29-May-09 15:00:22

<childish Giggle>

That will teach her and her dog to think they can be better at agility then us grin

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 29-May-09 18:28:13


mb just texted - the monster puppy is def ok -

her actual words were

"yes hes fine- back to his annoying self"
which probably means he is trying to be loving and sit on her smile

KingCanuteIAm Fri 29-May-09 19:25:48


That is great news blondie!

I wonder when bella will see the roundup check in?

bella39 Fri 29-May-09 19:31:19

Oi! You two! Behave!

I pop out to get the dc shod, have a quick bbq and bottle of rose with dh and look what you two are up to! Look at the mess of this place.

Blondie - I have told you about leaving 12" dildos all over the floor - someone could fall over and have a nasty accident. Mind you, by the wide grin on KC's face, she already has grin

Right, am going back outside now so behave. And I dodn't want to be in the poxy boring sissy girly pantsy round up anyway. Nope. No way. Wouldn't be in it if you plied me with rose and chocolates and got Jon Bon Jovi to lick creme brulee from all over my body. Well okay, maybe I would under those circumstances.

Blondie - I read in the paper today about some Tory MP in Kent about to lose his seat cos he claimed for a six-figure bill from Lovehoney on behalf of his nanny - ring any bells? grin

<stumbles off>

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 29-May-09 19:36:21

pmsk bella

you PISSHEAD and at such an early time

alas my db isnt a mp grin


<blonde ponders>

i have lost one of my collection - mr blonde was looking for it the other day grin

have you been in my house - you ONLY have to say if you want to try one of mine


<blonde runs away very fast with legs crossed and hand over bum>

bella39 Fri 29-May-09 19:41:48

Nope not chasing you. Uh-oh. Too busy enjoying the mental image of Jon & the creme brulee [horny emoticon]

KingCanuteIAm Fri 29-May-09 19:44:47

Roffle Bella, you do realise that the prize for being quoted in the roundup is to have Mr BonJovi visit with Creme Brulee? He has just rang the door bell.... got to go, see ya grin

<runs off to answer Mr BonJovis insistent knocking>

<runs back and nicks the 12">


KingCanuteIAm Fri 29-May-09 19:45:35

[not even got a dh/p so sooooo horney emoticon]

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 29-May-09 19:48:00

aww you are a single lady then king

as i said the other day (before puppy bee sting accident) i know nothing about you 2, but chat to you both regually on here grin

so who wants to spill some details about theirselves?

ps - feel free to have jon - doesnt do it for me

now mr blonde

<blonde swoons>

he def does it for me

bella39 Fri 29-May-09 19:48:29


KingCanuteIAm Fri 29-May-09 19:51:57

Like I said Blonde, things are so desperate a dead fish would be a contender wink

Bella, sorry, I can't stop to chat, I have a visitor who wants a tour of the upstairs of my house wink wink

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 29-May-09 20:00:00

you can have the dead fish mr blonde caught


<blonde throws>

i like this or this one - i always said the ears were all you needed

bella39 Fri 29-May-09 20:06:54

Thanks for that, MrsBlonde.

I quote:

'let those trademark buzzy ears take you straight to Climaxville'

- do you think I'll get quote of the week for that? grin

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 29-May-09 20:11:57

you never know

rabbits are ok - but its the ears that do the work - as do your fingers grin

bella39 Fri 29-May-09 20:14:09

Amapoleon's hammy has to be pts.

Go there and offer hammy wisdom x

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 29-May-09 20:21:38


have posted

poor hammy and poor Amapoleon

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 29-May-09 20:25:48

right im off to go out for meal with mr blonde

have a nice night king and bella

KingCanuteIAm Fri 29-May-09 20:28:58

Bella, can you go back to the rehomed puppy thread? She has decided to persevere and is asking for tips on getting his behaviour up to scratch.

Night Blondes, enjoy your meal envy xx

bella39 Fri 29-May-09 20:32:52

Bit too pissed, KC - and have looked at your advice and doubt very much I could do better.

Off for a strong cup of Twinings and then I reckon MrBella is gonna get very lucky, after all that talk of Jon grin

Night, Blondie - make sure you get the 'Friday' toys out tonight, sweetie x

Sleep well girls, puppies, hammies, dead fish (where did he end up, btw?)

KingCanuteIAm Fri 29-May-09 20:43:37

<whispers> in the bin bella <shussh>

Enjoy your Jon MrBella evening grin


Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 11:55:00

<blonde nods solomnly>

yes in the bin blush

hope mr bella got his wicked way - as mr blonde did

<whispers >

and got naughty sexy underwear

king - hope you had a good night - can i ask why there is no mr king? sad

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 11:59:36

Huh, I am not sure all this chat of getting some is allowed in front of a celibate single person grin

Mr King turned out to have other, more questionable, interests. I have been single for a few years no though so I am well adjusted to it! (I admit that is probably the only thing I am well adjusted to though wink)

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 12:00:34

G'day all. Popping in briefly - very busy day here making more summer fruit terine and stocking up on more rose (clink, clink) wink

Blondie & KC - I have put you down as 'my mates' but have yet to do anything with my profile. Does this mean when I eventually put stuff on there only you two can see it?

And Blondie - I am tall, blonde, good looking and intelligent. There, do you feel better now you know something about me? grin

We seem to have the dildos and dead fish thread to ourselves - can't think why no-one else contributes sad

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 12:10:58

I think that is how it works Bella but I am not sure so maybe best to email HQ and check? (or do a Site Stuff post?) If it does work that way then I may be tempted to put up a pic or two of the Pup grin

I don't understand why everyone is keeping away either, perhaps they are intimidated by our intelligent debate and charming good looks? grin

Oh, BTW Bella, I emailed and then rang about the woofa, they have someone visiting her on Monday sadly (well sad for me not the dog obviously!) but have said they will place me next on the list if that one does not work out. I suspect it will though, she sounds like a dream dog! [pout] [happy for woofa] sad

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 12:13:06

ok you two

i will kmake my profile public for a moment so you can see me

but only for few mins then i hide again
im very shy smile

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 12:14:35

Oh sad - yes, I don't expect she'll be there for very long. Perhaps the people on Monday will be really horrid and you'll get her wink

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 12:14:52

Blondes, you have no picis on your profile, how can I poke fun at you see what you look like if you have no picis?

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 12:16:56

i have them on there - just hidden

but i have added you and bella as mates so you can see

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 12:17:03

Is it awful of me to say I hope so Bella?

I am quite attached to the idea of her now, I really think she would fit in fantastically. I did email them that night to try to get my name in fast but they have been away and not checked emails <smacks forehead for being patient and dumb intead of clever and pushy>

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 12:18:07

Aw, Blondie - you are lovely! Not only beautiful but you look like a really nice person too (which we knew already!!!). Love your dress, your hair, the beach - gawd how I am envy about that beach wedding!!!).

And Mr Blonde looks lovely too - not a patch on JonBon of course, but very nice grin

Right, will try to sort out some pics. Of me. KC may even go so far as to put one of her dog on shock

(I suspect KC is actually head of MI6, hence the reticence...)

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 12:19:14

and i dont know why no one is replying on our thread of dead fish and sex

obviously not toegther!!!

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 12:19:17

Ahh, I was too quick off the draw!

Your wedding looks wonderful and you are quite the babe aren't you? wink

<sharpens stalking skills> grin

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 12:21:10

KC - stop stalking and go tell that other woman what it is like to have a big bouncy GSD pup. You are always whingeing to us about it, so go share! wink

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 12:21:35

Ok, I will level with you, there are no pictures of me, I am actually a vampire who cannot be imortalised in print. [fanggy grin]

Can't wait for your picis Bella [nosey cow emoticon]

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 12:22:47

Nope, I'm not doing it unless you do.

Get thee to the other thread...

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 12:23:10

yah you can see mesmile

am i really beautiful?

<blonde preens>

and yes getting married in the carribean was perfect!!

though at the moment, my pics are public as i cant add you king - says you dont exsist? hmm so have made my profile free for anyone to see - do you have a different talk name?

it wont find KingCanuteIAm sad

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 12:23:17

I am sure she has thought it through and knows all there is to know about the little gits breed grin

I did drop in but she wants advice on the purchase which I cannot help with, I didn;t want to give advice unasked for incase I get my ear clipped!

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 12:23:49

erm being blonde here

but what is a gsd pup?

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 12:25:01

No, it is just as it is on here, try clicking through to my (non) profile then highlight, copy and paste it from there, perhaps there is something weird int he way it is being typed?

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 12:25:25

German Shepard Dog grin

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 12:27:09

German Shepherd Dog, sweetie.

You're young, beautiful and sometimes you are very blonde...grin

KC - I offered my advice because people are suggesting full grown it's kind of relevant, isn't it....or do I just have a button which says 'large breed pup' and when you press it I do my full HD (hip dysplasia for you, Blondie) routine grin

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 12:28:19

I will go and see what you have said then, if omeone else has started it I am happy to play second fiddle grin

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 12:28:20

Shepherd! Shepherd!

KC can't spell!!!!!!!!!!

And she thinks you can have a roundabout in agility!!


bella39 Sat 30-May-09 12:29:15

And Blondie - I am going to remove KC as my mate so only you can see my withered old hag's face, okay? grin

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 12:29:43

So, Bella, as a proffesional doggy person with some standing perhaps you should call said rescue and tell them how wonderful I am and how the only right choice for woofa is me? I am sure they will listen to you grin

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 12:31:14

No, a flyover dear, get it right. Anyway I can spell, it is my fingers that have the trouble <sticks tounge out>

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 12:34:03

oh you mean you have an alsation

i have a gsMd grin

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 12:34:52

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 12:44:05

we want to see you now!!!!

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 12:51:34

Blondie - can you see my profile but no pics?

Try again pls wink

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 12:52:24

Bella, I don't think you have any pics grin

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 12:54:49

I have deleted you a my mate <sniff>, KC.

Until you come up with the goods, that is...

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 12:57:38

def no pics bella sad

have i scared you both off with my ugly picture sad

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 12:58:07

I am just looking into it now, hang on!

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 13:03:22

Here's what I did-

my profile is public

I put one pic in my gallery and made my gallery visible to my mates.

What else do I need to do?

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 13:04:53

did you save the changed option
thats what i did as well,assume you can both still see my pics

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 13:05:06


Make me a mate?


bella39 Sat 30-May-09 13:08:14

Just been back in and saved everything I could possibly save.

No chance you are being a bit, ahem, non-brunette. Blondie?

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 13:11:57

cheeky bitch

no,you have def not done it right

im blonde and i managed to put pics up!!!!

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 13:23:43

Well I can't even get the darn thing to upload - I think someone is trying to tell me somthing!

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 13:25:47


Will try again after lunch.

I am never good on an empty stomach...

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 13:27:06

and now my photos from my phone won't go onto my computer... hmm, will come back to this shortly!

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 13:32:22

yah right you two!! hmm

you have seen me, now SORT it out!!!!

am off to sunbathe grin

i EXPECT to see pics when im burnt red brown smile

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 14:11:30

Right, last attempt before teatime, when I shall have been on the rose (again) and there will be absolutely no chance of me doing it right.

KC, I will now reinstate you as my mate so if even you, as head of MI6, cannot get it to work, we know it's jsut that I have messed up. Okay?

p.s. the hair is ironic okay?

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 14:27:10

Ok, the head of MI6 is failing miserably on all counts sad

Bella, you do know that I have to be your mate don't you? Otherwise I could just make that phonecall.... grin

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 14:30:09

Until you come up with photographic evidence to the contrary, KC, I am going to spread rumours that you are actually Katie Price.

Get a wiggle on...

p.s. try mine again - I did something different...

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 14:33:16

Nope, still no good I am afraid!

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 14:39:47

Ok, can someone try that and see if it works? If it does I will upload some more!

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 14:51:49


How useless are we if Blondie can do it & we can't? sad

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 14:54:25

Weird, you are both my mates - Ahh... I have got it I think, when you uploaded your pici did you click "yes" to "keep picture private"? I did...

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 14:55:49

I tried both ways, iyswim.

I am now at a lifetime low re self esteem sad

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 14:59:46

Quick, quick, look, you have 2 minutes grin

(it is sooo not worth it though!)

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 15:04:11

Times up...

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 15:05:15

Hah, well, it isnot my fault you were too busy swillin back the rose grin

<feels much more relaxed>

pink1970girl Sat 30-May-09 15:06:02

oh my goodnes i thought i too was the only one with a thing about fish lol. i am okay when they are small-ish and in a tank, but when they "flutter" out of water oooh nooooo. used to have nightmares about aquaria and don't like birds or butterfies fluttering near me

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 15:21:28


i have been roasting for 2hrs (thats sunbathing to you bella and king) and not something perverted

though i am turning and basting myself grin

and STILL no pics hmm

are you both blonde?grin

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 15:26:27

I had my pics up but you were to busy spit roasting to see them, not y fault!

Pink, please tell me you have not jsut waded through our insane ramblings grin
I am feeling quite liberated too, like I said above, I thought it was just me until this thread! I am not bothered by the fluttering personally, it is the "fishyness" of fish that gets me hmm

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 15:32:31

i DONT believe you

<sticks tongue out at kc>

get them out again preeeeeeeeeeeeeeeety please

im here for 2mins then going back to roast tan smile

and pink - they are all mad on this thread- -apart from me grin

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 18:11:28

Right - I am confused and squiffy.

Please expalin.

If the way to show pics is to put them on and select the option to allow your mates to see them, why:

- do mine not work

- are you two both prattling on about doing it for 2 minutes only etc?

Am I being really thick?

(be kind, please)

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 18:13:52

I gave in and went public, but you missed it because you were getting sloshed grin

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 18:16:52

Hmm...yes, figures. But the system implies that we should be able to have our pics there all the time just for mates, doesn't it?

Right, gonna ask someone...

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 18:22:02

Yes I think so bella, I tried searching for info ut can't see anything that really answers the question.

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 18:39:00

Right, have emailed.

KC - I can see your profiel but no pics. Is that right? What then did you do to go 'public' - did you do 'visible to all MNetters'?

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 18:43:35

Right, my profile is visable to all but my phots are only visable to my mates.

I just re-did it all aout 10 miniutes ago so it should be showing but perhaps try again in a bit? I will not change anything until after that.

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 18:46:30

Nope - not working.

Does mine still not work (haven't altered it for hours)?

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 18:50:36

No, still nothing on yours.

bella39 Sat 30-May-09 18:52:39

It's pants.

Right. I don't expect an answer from MNHQ tonight and I'm going to go watch BGT a very highbrow documentary now, so will try again tomorrow...

laters! grin

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 18:54:29

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 19:12:05

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 19:17:36

KingCanuteIAm Sat 30-May-09 19:20:13

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 30-May-09 19:25:44

bella39 Sun 31-May-09 09:37:19

No reply as yet...

If KC is around we could do a quick flash?

KingCanuteIAm Sun 31-May-09 10:04:15

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 31-May-09 10:13:35

KingCanuteIAm Sun 31-May-09 10:21:52

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 31-May-09 10:25:36

KingCanuteIAm Sun 31-May-09 10:29:40

hang on, I only have one photo on it at the moment though - and that is not of the important one! grin

KingCanuteIAm Sun 31-May-09 10:31:16

Well it is done, but I don't think it is working still hmm

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 31-May-09 10:31:37

<blonde taps fingers>

im missing out on sun here smile

KingCanuteIAm Sun 31-May-09 10:32:20

It is working... just took a moment!

KingCanuteIAm Sun 31-May-09 10:34:25

Time is up....

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 31-May-09 10:36:56

KingCanuteIAm Sun 31-May-09 10:38:07

Oh, pay attention grin

KingCanuteIAm Sun 31-May-09 10:38:56

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 31-May-09 10:38:58

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 31-May-09 10:39:55

yah i see you smile

you are just as pretty as me smile

KingCanuteIAm Sun 31-May-09 10:41:52

Lol, possibly... but I think that is a matter of opinion grin

See, I am real and I do not look like the head of MI6 (well not in that photo anyway wink)

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 31-May-09 10:45:03

indeed you are, and i assumeyou have 4 dd's as well - something else i didnt know about you

KingCanuteIAm Sun 31-May-09 10:46:22

Nope, I have one ds. The one with the longest hair is ds grin

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 31-May-09 10:49:04

oops blush

so such long hair

KingCanuteIAm Sun 31-May-09 10:50:14

It is longer than that now, about to his waist, although it does need trimming.

His hair is his fav thing, he will not cut it for anything or anyone!

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 31-May-09 10:56:23

wow - would like to get my hair that long

KingCanuteIAm Sun 31-May-09 11:08:53

He has been growing it since he was 5 and we had a converstaion about freedom to choose, so about 4 years now shock.

Before that he refused to go to any hairdresser, screamed and shouted etc (when he was little) so I used to just do his hair with clippers. When he got older he asked me not to any more so we had a chat about responsiblity and the need to care for long hair properly - go to a hairdresser to have it cut etc. He agreed that was fine and has been growing it ever since. Needless to say, he has never been to a hairdresser but he does allow me to trim it. On the plus side he washes and dries it himself so it is not all bad grin

bella39 Sun 31-May-09 13:53:20

Blondie - was just I prepared soem squid for the BBQ tonight...such a shame Colin didn't go in the freezer, eh? grin

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 31-May-09 20:20:22

thats MEAN!!!!

though i did have a lovely peice of salmon at my local pub today

<licks lips>

bella39 Sun 31-May-09 20:46:41


Blondeshavemorefun Sun 31-May-09 20:59:19

and we wont the meat raffle - so brought home 7lbs of pork and 40rashers of bacon grin

mr blonde VERY happy

bella39 Sun 31-May-09 21:00:34

well, at least woofa will eat well this week grin

capitals not working since dd was doing some typing earlier....

Blondeshavemorefun Sun 31-May-09 21:08:59

woofa isnt having any of my meatgrin

he has a friend staying this week - mabel the greaqt dane - saw the gps today and they promised they would do doggy training getting into boot for me

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 01-Jun-09 22:34:04

true love

my puppy and his girlfriend

KingCanuteIAm Tue 02-Jun-09 07:56:18

That is a fab picture! grin

She is plenty pretty enough for him isn't she? A rather handsome couple! smile

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 02-Jun-09 09:48:45

indeed they are

puppy loves mabel (dane) and follows her everywhere

gp's are also doing car traning every night and said she had firm words with her son (db) that he should sort out the fear of the car and it wasnt fair on me to cope with a dog who was that big with a fear and 3 children - go granny smile

KingCanuteIAm Tue 02-Jun-09 10:06:17


Fab Granny!

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 02-Jun-09 10:19:46

indeed she is smile

last night she got as far as front paws on car using a kind of lead with strap over nose so dog had to go where she went (she uses them with her horses and how she trained mabrl to get into car)

puppy got lots of treats

hoping for back paws in car tonight smile

KingCanuteIAm Tue 02-Jun-09 10:28:14

Little and often, encourge, praise, feed... sounds perfect!

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 02-Jun-09 10:43:07

bless her

right off to wake baby and go in paddling pool

its a hard life sometimes wink

KingCanuteIAm Tue 02-Jun-09 11:14:14

Ok, puppy is now on the profile grin

KingCanuteIAm Tue 02-Jun-09 13:05:32

Argh!!! Bella, I rang re the woofa, the people couldn't get to her last night so they may be going in the next couple of days.... Please can I ring again on Thursday? GAH!

Not that I mind ringing again of course, it is just that I am on the edge of my seat with nerves here!

(on the plus side not showing up has to be a good sign from my POV doesn't it?)<slaps own wrist>

bella39 Tue 02-Jun-09 13:37:35


1. I WANT your puupy. OMG, do I want your puppy grin

2. Those other people are useless tiemwasters who almost certainly have very dodgy hobbies. Call tomorrow.

3. Am getting my camera out now for my own woofa pics...

Blondie: out of the paddling pool and let the children get in now grin

KingCanuteIAm Tue 02-Jun-09 13:44:51

He is rather fab isn't he [proud] grin
Can't wait to see your pups!

I don't want to force my hand with them, I have rung to follow up then rung again when I said I would, she initially said Friday then we chatted a bit and she said, right, call back on Thursday. So I think I will phone Thursday AM, at the end of the day she is a volunteer and it is pointless tieing up her time when all she can say is "They still haven't been leave me alone call back when I asked you to"!

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 02-Jun-09 14:14:41

kc - whta a cute large pup grin

very adorable

think he needs a bigger bed

bella - i was very good - let allowed the children in the paddling pool

KingCanuteIAm Tue 02-Jun-09 14:16:47

Thank you Blondes!

That is not his bed, that i dds bean bag, he is not allowed on it, he knows that, he just dives on there as soon as I leave the room and pretends to be asleep so I won't move him wink grin

I figure that it is better than using the sofa!

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 02-Jun-09 14:40:29

he does look rather big for a 4mth pup

or maybe bean bag is small grin

KingCanuteIAm Tue 02-Jun-09 14:52:34

Well... the bean bag is a large one - but not a huge one, just not small IYSWIM, he is about the size of a small lab!

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 02-Jun-09 14:54:32

fancy him being a small lab when hes a small gsd grin

bella39 Tue 02-Jun-09 15:03:05

lol @ Blondie calling KC's puppy big.

And yours was quite dainty at that age, was he, Blondie? grin

bella39 Tue 02-Jun-09 15:28:27

A selection of furries now on my profile...wink

KingCanuteIAm Tue 02-Jun-09 16:24:09

They are lovely VBella grin

I am desperate to get some decent pics of pup but he comes running at me every time he sees me with a camera, he always has a huge grin on his face - I think he has only got half the idea grin

noddyholder Tue 02-Jun-09 16:25:11

There is another fish thread.Goldfish this time I am thinking of flouncing!

KingCanuteIAm Tue 02-Jun-09 16:31:15


Perhaps we could ask for a note to be added at the top of the topic? "Fish Phobics inhabit this area please post sensitively"

bella39 Tue 02-Jun-09 17:20:59

Woofa and his girlfriend are lovely, Blondie. Hope the car training goes well - I really felt sorry for you that day you had to try to bundle 3 children and a reluctant woofa into the car wink

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 02-Jun-09 19:01:49

your furries are lovely as well - well dog is - blondes is VERY allergic to cats!!

and yes thur was a nightmare - i was in tears as thought he was going to die as breathing was bad, where face had swelled up sad

thank god for piriton eh girls!!

i have managed to get him in the car once when had a friend round - and we pushed/pulled him in - and mb was going to take him the next day to the vet, but he kept throwing up and i was worried he had eaten something

he often does eat things he is not meant to hmm

and then at vets he jumped out of car quite happily and then took 3vets and me to get him back in

and yes my horse is still dainty grin

he was small and cute as a 4mth then he gre and grew and grew
