My special thanks to Opie aka Oppopotamus aka Opie and his Daddieee n Mommyy n Charwee for taking pawt in our K9 interview and telling us all about life at home. Oh Opie, l have to be honest some of the answers you pawed in did make me bol quite a bit! Finally the answer to the poop is resolved, no longer now a mystery ‘bronzing’, l should have known! I will now try so much harder to make sure Mummy and Dad have plenty to keep them going!
“OPE U R EXPINSIVE” Did make me laugh, it’s something l hear Mummy say all the time to me, obviously not Ope, but Scrappy, we are going to have to put you out to work! And this had both me and Dad in stitches! “Black pants r best for showeeng off my goldalishus fur-fur!” BOL LOL BOL LOL!
Thank you again Opie and remember Power to the Bark!
Now if anyone wants to catch up with more adventures and tails from Opie then do remember to check out his Twitter!
Hope you enjoyed reading … Tootle Pip from Doodlepip!
Also l have now introduced a new series called K9 Product Review Interviews in case some of you might like to tell us about something that you do – be this crafty hobbys or past times and activities or even a business for we K9rs and Feline Katz.
Dad and l are currently in discussions about vocalising these interviews in the future, so that is something l am quite keen to explore further.
Now l know that many of you must have K9’s equally as much as Feline Katz  – isn’t it time you let them have their say and take our number to 50!
Is 50 You? But if you are feeling shy, perhaps you are number 51?
Just paw me a line to the email addy above
