Fairy And Her Friends Are All White – Almost!

Whoooo! What’s all this then?
And WHO is disturbing my ‘copter-nap?

Oh, it’s Dougal . . . and those snow-bright-white-polar BEARS. Keep the noise down.

Errr, don’t look now chaps, but Dougal has forgotten to put his white suit on.


Who’s this? Oh not to panic, it’s only daddy.


‘Come on out, my time is up?’
Oh no! You don’t get me that way.

It can’t possible be time for a bath. I only had one . . .
err . . . let me see . . . a week last Thursday’ish maybe. Yes, that was it.
So I am perfectly ok in here thank you very much.

Oh, you just wanted to give me a scritchy scratchy cuddle. Well that’s different. By the way, what time is it?

Ooooh – that’s nice. Humans do have their uses. Must be time for a snack!

Fairy Springs Into Summer!

Greetings my people – and welcome to a lovely sunny spot in the garden where I am sure you will all be eagerly awaiting my latest pontifications. So here goes.

Many of my loyal followers will be familiar with the term ‘Spring Cleaning’. Although more usually applied to what ones Personal Piggy Palace goes through when it gets its annual big clean-up jobbie, this term could also be applied to some of us who enjoy our pampering a little more regularly.

First things first though. To ensure the maximum pampering quotient is achieved, only the very best is good enough. It isn’t good getting all fobbed off with any old shampoo, washing up liquid or such rubbish. Oh no, the very idea.

To save you the bother of wasting valuable salad munching time researching the subject all round the internet and everything, I can tell you here and now there is only ONE shampoo company good enough for me to risk my legendary good looks on – Gorgeous Guineas.

Yes Mummy – I do insist on checking the bottle first.

Hummm, now let me see – ‘Spring into Summer Easi Rinse shampoo‘. Five fold orange oil and lavender. A special edition too! That looks just the ticket.

Now we have that all sorted out, there is just the small matter of the water.

Steady as she goes Mummy – lower away. I just want to dip a toe in to test the temperature.

I said ‘DIP A TOE’ – not ‘DUNK THE PIGGY’!!!!

Actually, talking of toes – don’t forget they need lots of extra special pampering.

Ooooooooh – stop it – that tickles!

I like this bit – all lovely and luxurious. Any chance of a scritch too Mummy?

Awww – can’t I stay in here just a little while longer?

Be very careful not to rub me up the wrong way – Tee Hee!

That got most of the sploshy water off – time for that all important blow dry.

Oooooh, stop it Mummy – your causing such a draft around my, err . . . moving swiftly on.

Gosh all that beautification malarkey takes it out of you. Time for a swift relax.

Oh yes – this is the life. My fur feels even more all soft and silky than usual.

What was that shampoo called, mum? Spring Into Deckchair?! Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Fairy has a Marmalade Related Paddington!

Mummy has been telling me lately that I must be very careful not to get into a Jam – she didn’t say anything about Marmalade though!

Ha! Fooled you! I’m not getting all sticky in here, but according to Mummy, it is Marmalade making time!
These super-duper oranges are only available early in the year. Apparently they make the orangiest, scrummiest fruitiest tasting Marmalade ever! Oh what joy! Hummmph, it would probably taste a lot better if it were made from cucumbers and lettuce – if you ask me! Oh, and another thing . . .

Err Daddy – what exactly is that Bear type interloper doing on MY marmalade label, I ask you?

Right! That’s it! Get me out of here – this minute. Having to smile sweetly and pontificate on yucky ‘Oranges’ is one thing – but having a soppy Bear in a Duffel coat and ill-fitting hat trying to muscle in on MY Blog is quite another.

And don’t think you can get round me with cuddles and scritches – ooooh, down a bit, left a bit – smashing!

Fairy’s Fickle Tips For Successful Fondles!

Being a connoisseur of cuddles and ear rubs I wish to present how you too can get the best out of your human.

First off, get yourself all comfy and cosy and flopped.

In this example I make sure my daddy’s left paw is suitably placed to make a perfect resting place for my front toes.

Now then, Daddy, I’ll have some nice ear-rubs, head-top strokes and chin-chuckles, please.

Ready when you are!

10 minutes later . . . . that’s perfect! Daddy, you really ARE the best!

There you have it. Follow my guide carefully and with plenty of practice you too will soon have a fully trained human.

Bear Cuddles!

Fairy has always enjoyed being cuddled and enjoys many hours asleep nestling in her Daddy’s hands! Being blind and deaf has its compensations – there’s nothing to distract you. So once you are in a warm, safe and comfortable snuggle, it is easy to nod off.

Before last Christmas, Fairy proclaimed Pasquale Bear as officially the best cuddler in the world! He was soft and supportive, and never grew tired of pandering to Fairy’s cuddly demands.

However, it seems Fairy is fast becoming a little too portly for Pasquale’s lap.

Humph, this feels okay. Just so long as mummy photos us from down there.

Er, is it me imagining, or have your legs shrunk? What do you mean, your arm’s gone to sleep? Keep still, why don’t you.

That’s better! All cosy now! I think I will just take a . . . short . . . nap . . . . zzzzz!

Oh! Hello again!

It wasn’t always like this. I fitted perfectly back in August when I was little and new.

Oh, Pasquale, you’re so strong and brave. My Hero!

The moment Pasquale’s strong, furry arms wrapped securely around Fairy, she would fall fast asleep!

Pasquale had to keep a firm grip of the sleeping Fairy . . . otherwise . . .

. . . she had a tendency to slip down into a little squashy, snoozy heap!
