The Sheltie Halloween Party

  1. As you can see……The CraZy gang have gathered in the enchanting forest to put the finishing touches to their planed Halloween trick or treat tour ……And I don’t know how you feel about this……But I would recommend that when they come knocking on your door (Which they are sure to do) that you go for the treat option…And NOT….I will repeat NOT the trick option…….As I have found to my cost in previous years…..(I will say no more on that one)……..They did ...offer to let me tag along and to share in the goodies…..But with so many scary things happening out there tonight…..I decided to take fright and decline the offer……Unlike Misty who seems more mystified about her surrounding that frightened ……..Where as Jazz is giving her snob look in her brand new hat….As for Maysie-May, she looking as if she is well up for it…..Molly is looking more than a little worried ……Midnight is saying oh no, not again …..Duffy is busy making new friends..…Where as Halo is saying…..Bring it all on……So without further ado……The CraZy Gang will soon be knocking on your door…..Have fun….And don’t worry….The CraZy Gang have a few treats of their own in the form of Sheltie love, that they will be giving, especially for you…..

The Sheltie Stare


The Sheltie Stare
OK….I need a little help here……To fill you in on the story so far…..I will admit to overstaying my welcome here……With my promise of only having the one pint, and now number three is on the table……. Halo has had enough…..…(Its past his feed time)…..And is determine to make things a lot harder for me to reach that 3rd pint by using the table to put his paws on to force me back as much as he can away from the pint……And if that was not bad enough….He is giving the beer the evil eye, as if he can make the beer disappear into a puff of smoke, or that he can make the camera lens cap laid on the table move onto the rim of the beer glass to seal it from further use……So my friend….. The help I need as mentioned at the start, is that because the beer is your side of the table making you the nearest …….Could you please pass it to me before Halo magic starts to work…..And please don’t let Halo give you his big eyed puppy look to make you think twice about my request……But I am sure you will not fall for that one…..Will you..!!!!!……As for the other Sheltie in the photo…..Molly has eyes only for the couple on the table next to us who are about to tuck into their steak meals……Ummmmmm……Now there’s a idea Halo!!!!

Sheltie Autumn Gold



Sheltie Autumn Gold
Speaking to Halo over breakfast  ……I said it would be helpful for him to help me to clean up our back yard where all autumn leaves were blowing and laying around ……Thinking to myself as we finished our breakfast …….Yeah……As if that was going to happen……I don’t think so…...But for now I had more important things to think about as my telephone was telling me in a very loud tone that it wanted my attention……As I answered the phone I noticed that Halo was listening into the conversation as the talk drifted to how the price of gold was going up and up, and wouldn’t it be nice to find a pot of gold in the garden and to send a piece to all our friends around the world……With that Halo was gone…..And when I had finished my call……Low and behold and to my complete surprise…..Halo had cleaned up all the leaves up into a very large neat pile……Wow I said…..What is all this about Halo…..He said that he found that pot of gold that I had been talking about on the phone…….And now he was going to run into his large pile gold leaves and with a ~little Halo magic~…..He was going to scatter the gold leaves high & low worldwide so all our friends could share in this gold he had found…….OK…..I will admit that I had a different gold in mind on my earlier phone call than Autumn gold…..But as the saying goes…..It’s the thought that counts …..So when you see your next autumn gold leaf…..Think of it as a Halo gift just for you..X

Shelties full of promises



Shelties full of promises
OK America……We are sorry to see it go……But a promise is a promise…..And our word is our bond….. So in the words of the late Beatle George Harrison ……Here come the Sun…….Heading your way over the Atlantic Ocean with a gentle sea breeze to keep it on track….……Just as we promised it would…..We estimating that it should give New York a Sunrise at 06.58 with the rest of your States to follow soon after…..And we are hoping that it will give you a day so full of promise like the one we have just had …..And don’t you worry any…..For we are picking up the overseas air freight charges and sending it to you on a free delivery with a first class stamp…..That simply says…… Love from the CraZy Gang XXX

Shelties in view




Sorry but no Halo or Midnight in this photo…..Both seem to be enjoying the company of Di who is sat close by sipping a glass of red wine…With Halo supplying music from Bruce Springsteen for us all to enjoy on this late summer evening… …Still…..No matter…..For here, we have in front of us Misty…..Daughters Molly and Maysie-May…..And great great grandchild Jazz….And here is the thing…….This photo has no prompting or setting up from me whatsoever……They just decided to strike up this pose and then patiently waited for me to abandon my glass of wine in favour of my camera …..And then doing the easy bit of focusing and click……In my humble view….I don’t think they could have posed any better……But quite why Duffy the bear (On the left of the photo) suddenly came over all camera shy and ducked out the photo, I have no idea…..Maybe he was missing Halo and Middy…..But at least it seemed to amuse both Maysie and Molly…

Sheltie pantomime…..It’s behind you….Oh no its not….Oh yes it is



Sheltie pantomime…..It’s behind you….Oh no its not….Oh yes it is
As you can see I have the CraZy Gang team lined up ready for a game of football…….And to be honest, I am deliberately taking my time with the team talk………For like you ……We can see how happy they all look….And I for one, do not want to spoil this good mood by warning them about that large wave that is about to hit the English shores and to keep on rolling up to where the CraZy Gang are standing…….Yes I can see where you are coming from where you ask if they would be better off having a shower after the football match rather than before…….But look at it from my point of view…..I may never get another chance like this to get one over the CraZy Gang……And let’s face it…I have waited a long long time to be on the winning side…….And look…..I am more than high enough up the beach for the wave to miss me completely …..(So lucky don’t you think)……So I am relying on you dear reader to back me up on this one by keeping silent and not to warn them about what is happening behind them ……Will you do that…..Just for me I wonder!!!!!!....Of course you will ~Sic~

Boys and their toys…..



The bad guys thought that they had it all going for them…..A fast getaway car……A fool proof plan……A secret beach track that lead to their hideaway that no one but them knew about ……And last but not least……My favourite bedtime teddy……(Who they were going to hold to ransom)…….Well it looked game set and match to the bad guys…….And I was going to have pay monies from the Sheltie treat fund and my beer fund to get the bad guys to hand back my bedtime teddy…. .But the bad guys had failed to take in one very important consideration in the getaway plan……And that was super hero traffic cop Halo…..Who had picked up the bad guys trail some miles back…..And was never going to let it go once he had hold…….As he soon began to close in fast…..To bring him right on the tail of that fast car with all lights flashing and sirens blaring ……But still the fast car would not stop……Leaving office Halo no alternative but to bring the full weight of the law to make that fast car stop….And stop it did …….Very abruptly and sudden stop…Leaving Halo to free the hostage and most importantly……To save the much inflated beer fund……Which
I managed to merge with the Sheltie treat fund to it in all the confusion…..Happy days don’t you think !!!

Sheltie`s Rule



Look…..I agree it might look a little awkward for me……But I think that despite what your friends might say…..  You will find that just because I forgot to bring your treats on our evening walk does not give you the right to confiscate my cans of beer……Yet in view of the circumstances that the both of you can be as stubborn as mules and you have friends in high places …….(And I need that drink)…..I am prepared to run over to the local fish and chips shop and get you a jumbo sausage to share……No deal you say…..It has to be a jumbo sausage for each of you, and one each for the rest of the CraZy Gang too…… or the beer goes over the wall …….Ummmmm…….Needless to say that I had to give in to the demands…….But looking on the bright side…..At least I get to sit alongside Jazz and Halo on the wall and enjoy the sea view with my beer a beer in my hand

Shelties promise



Last night as it got near to our bedtime……I was telling Halo a story on how as a young lad I use to hitch hike a ride to get me from A to B before I was old enough to drive a car legally ….( Is it my imagination…But looking back… The world did seem a safer place then)…….I thought at the time of telling Halo, he was really hanging on my every word……But It still came as a big surprise to find a note on my bedside table from Halo telling me that he had taken the... CraZy Gang down to the waterside to see if they could hitch a ride to the USA on one of the passing merchant ships…….Well…..As you can image ……I quickly dressed and raced down to the waterfront to find them…….And as luck would have it…..The CraZy Gang as yet, had no luck in getting a ship to pick them up…….Still trying to get my breath back ……I challenged Halo to explain just what he was playing at …….But it wasn’t Halo that answered me…..It was Duffy the Bear…...He told me that it was not Halo fault, but his…And his alone…….As he had been telling Halo that although he loved being a part of the CraZy Gang, and living with us…..He just wanted a short visit his homeland state California again to say hi to a few close friends (Heidi and Prince) and to see a few sights seeing tours, before heading back to English home again…….And that’s where Halo and the CraZy Gang stepped in with a promise of help for Duffy, and a chance for them also to get their paws on a stateside with visits to all their friends….. Well what do you do in a situation like that……Apart from to join them……So if you are a captain of one them ships that are passing by and heading to America ……Please stop to pick us up……
