A Dogs Life - Being A Dog Owner

Sharing is caring!

Well, welcome to Bichon Life. For those of you who are new, I like to write a fortnightly post about Yoda the family Bichon Frise. For the past 24 weeks, I have been following a template which covered the areas, out and about, toy of the week, caught in the act and shot of the week. After much thought, I’ve decided to change thing up a little as I’m starting to get bored.

I need to enjoy my posts and having a set prompt so to speak can sometimes become a restriction. So from here on out, each Yoda post will have a different title and be more flexible in regards to what I write. So here goes.

Over the past two weeks, the weather has changed and it has become more cold. John took me to the supermarket to look for some school items for Sylvia and I could not help but notice these really cute Dog items.

I purchased a rather large jumper for £2. I thought it was a good price and with the winter coming, maybe, just maybe Yoda would appreciate the extra warmth? So when we got home we let Yoda try on his new jumper. He looked super cute. It was a little on the large side but I guess that’s better than too small.

Yoda is still a piggy wiggy and John took some great pictures while I ate a hazelnut Yoghurt. After I finished and before I knew it, Yoda was next to me trying to steal the empty yoghurt pot. I let him take it and he got it stuck on his mouth. it was quite funny.

My daughter Sylvia absolutely adores our puppy and we had a photograph together. I really liked it. She is so happy in the picture. Well, I’ll not go on and on, but I’ll share the lovely pictures taken by my hubby.


Yoda is almost one year old! We are excited and we entered a competition to host a Dog party to celebrate his birthday. My good friend has a nice size garden and we will be inviting a few of Yoda’s dog pals to join him. I’m not too sure if we will be getting him a cake though!

As for the birthday boy, I’m thinking of buying him a new bed for his birthday.

We wanted to get him a bed when he was younger but he wasn’t exactly toilet trained and so we have put it off and he sleeps in different places, like the sofa or our bed, or on a blanket next to the bed.

I think it’s time to treat Yoda to a soft dog bed. That would be just great. I’m not sure how he’d react but this is what I’m thinking to get the birthday boy for his special day.

  1. Hi Angela, Yoda is soooo cute and I do love the jumper, I bet it fits him like a glove when he’s filled out properly. I want to get a cable knit jumper for the winter as I plan to keep his fur short for ease.

    I hope Yoda enjoys his birthday party and if you do buy him a dog bed, bear in mind he may chew it, so don’t go spending a fortune.


    1. Thanks Debbie. I hope to get him a nice comfy bed. If it’s his bed or sleeping area, he tends to leave it for that. He is more of a chewer of objects that don’t belong to him lol! ha ha ha angela xx

  2. what a fab jumper, we have cool suits for Bob in dubai, like a life jacket which we drench with water as the day goes on and the sun dries it out, but only when we go for a walk in the evenings, otherwise he’d be damp all the time

  3. Aww – so cute. Saari has a fabulously thick coat so had no need for jumpers and I suspect she would not enjoy wearing them anyway but I have a friend with a Yorkie who feels the cold and she has a great collection of jumpers as well a dressing gown and waterproof coats! Great to see some fashion on #AnimalTales 🙂

    1. oh i’ve not heard of a dog dressing gown lol! It sure is fun to see yoda looking stylish! maybe we can find him something nice to wear for his birthday post next month! Angela xx
