Easter Ducky

The Easter Bunny brought smells of bacon and sausages, Nana and Uncle Gerry, and new toys for ME (and Gromit and Clifford too). I checked them all thoroughly for squeakers, then released the blue dog to enjoy my new pink duck with stuffing. STUFFING! YAY!
They've been giving us the stuffless squirrels and foxes lately, it's been a while since I'm had something to destuff. It was great.
Destuffing ducks is the best .
                  Clifford and Gromit came a hustling,
                   trying to take away my duckyling.
                      Bargain for my duck? 
                     Can I say, "Out of luck!" 
                  Then I sent the two hounds a scuttling.

Always Helping

I recently helped to make pizzas on the barbecue. I might have licked one a little on the edge ..(just making sure it's okay for human consumption. ;) !!) I also helped with the cheese clean up, and taste testing the sliced peppers. Mum and Daddy! always appreciate how attentive I am. :)

Spring has always been my favourite time of year. It's when mud is at its best, the sun is warm, and the snow is cool. I love mud. Mud and puddles of mud, and wet puddles, have to be some of the best things in the world. Right now the Tree Farm is a perfect combination of fields of snow, muddy roads, and giant puddles - it doesn't get better than this.

Sous Chef Claire II

Claire and Gromit help make Snickerdoodles
Mum and Daddy! love to cook. Gromit and I are the sous chefs, and Clifford is the entertainment. What Mum and Daddy! don't love is our kitchen. Mum even entered a contest to win a new one. They talk about tearing it down all the time, and constantly complain about dysfunction, lack of storage, and the floor. I agree - the floor needs replacing and I often bring pieces of it to them to show them what a mess it is. The only thing that does work is the sunbeams.
Gromit and I sometimes pretend our animal toys are the kitchen staff, so make sure they are stationed all over the place. We watch them closely.
In the above photo were helping to make snickerdoodles. Mum told us often what a great help we were being. :)
Below, showing my attentiveness to the cheese recipes, and willingness to clean up.
