Winnie the greyhound's back (pack) for her 300th post

I have been so BORED.

Really REALLY bored.

I've missed all my friends and it's made me so sad not hearing what everyone is up to that I had a little cry.

But I am BACK now!!

My care and concern for the Lady Of The House means her back is now feeling a lot better and she is able to sit at the computer for longer which means I can blog again (under her snoopervision).
I see blogger had had a big old change-a-roo since I was last here. It did make it easy for me to spot that this happens to be my 300th blog post!
Now I've got to start catching up on everyone's news (which could take a while) Do let me know if there's something I really should know, won't you? 
Thank you for all the lovely messages on my last blog post, by the way. Seems ages ago.

Yesterday a BIG box arrived and when the LOTH unpacked it there was something that smelled really interesting.

Well, will, you look at that......?

It really has got my name on it.

I am one of the lucky pet bloggers to be invited by Pedigree to take a six week trial of their Joint Care+ treats.
These sticks contain natural active ingredients - glucosamine, Omega 3, green lipped mussel powder and methionine.
They sent them to me in this brilliant Pedigree back pack (Did I mention it has my name printed on it?), and they also sent me a throwing stick and a load of rubber balls that fit in it and then get released. The LOTH laughed when she saw that and said I was too lazy to chase a ball.
I soon proved her wrong. I had a good run in the garden as she showed me how it worked. I even chased after the ball - oh, at least four times before I got bored.
Pedigree has also lent us a snazzy little video camera so that the LOTH and the other People Of The House can try and capture me at my most playful. They say that if I have a treat stick a day you will see an improvement in my joints. Personally I think they are pretty good already. I was a top athlete you know.
I had my first Joint Care+ treat stick this morning and it was certainly tasty so I'm more than happy to eat one a day and tell you how I get on.
Now, I just need to get the LOTH to suss out how this video camera works..... once we've done that you might be lucky enough to see me in running/digging and playing action!

Hi Winnie,
Good to see you back, and to hear that, with your loving care and attention, the LOTH is on the mend. That sounds like a bumper pack of treats your received from Pedigree. Gail is wondering if one of those sticks might help her arthritic thumb...
Toodle pip!
PS Chasing a ball four times before getting bored is pretty good going by my standards.

Sue said...

Lovely to have you back.

We were also lucky enough to get picked for Pedigree.

They sound great. We might have to get some of those stick. Roxy has a funny foot and the Vet said she might get arthritis in it as a young dog.

We're so glad you're back and your mum is better. We've been wondering what you've been up to.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Sweet Winnie! It is so good to see you and glad your mom is doing better. Love the backpack! Can't wait to see some of the videos. You'll have to dig a nice big hole with your nimble joints.

Congrats on your 300th blog post!
Dinah just got one of those bags with the joint care now she is 10. They seem to be doing her some good already so I think it will be worthwhile.
