A few of you have been in touch to ask how Bruce is doing. Because of a horrible bacterial infection (which was beginning to affect the bones in his foot) he had his thumb amputated a week ago. The wound seems to be healing up well, and since our vets sent his thumb away for […]

Hiya! It is I, Bruce. I am here to tell you about my holiday. Sometimes, when Kate and Tom go away, I get to spend time with Sue and Wal. Sue and Wal are Kate’s mum and dad and they are also my second favourite humans. Sue and Wal have a wonderful garden full of […]

Hiya! It is I, Bruce. Today I am here to tell you about a delicious and intriguing object: the POTATO. Also known as “tattie” or “spud”, and, often (for some mystifying reason) prefixed with the adjective “humble”, the POTATO is one of my all-time favourite foods. Together with other wondrous food-objects (for example, CHICKEN, SAUSAGES […]

Hiya! It is I, Bruce. Things have been a little strange and discombobulating around here recently. First a mountain of books and cardboard appeared, and suddenly Kate and Tom were completely preoccupied with foraging in this mountain. Then my friends Mel, Gordon, and Ivor came to visit, but unusually they were not interested in playing […]

Hiya! It is I, Bruce. Today I am here to tell you about an important difference between Dogs and Humans. This is where I live. It is a good place and there are many things I like about it. My human companions also like this place. But although dogs and humans both can both like […]

It is […]

Hiya! It is I, Bruce. This morning an extremely curious thing occurred, so I am here to tell you all about it. The curious thing began with the appearance of the postie, who had a parcel for Tom. Inside the parcel was a box with this jolly person on the front of it. Intriguing! Apparently […]

There has been some snow. Bruce was rumbled, sleeping in Tom’s chair . . .again And only 5 penguins remain on my advent calendar. Which reminds me: today is the last day for orders if you’d like a book or kit from my online shop. My postie will hoik the last sack of parcels away […]

Hiya! It is I, Bruce. A while ago, we lived in a tall stone building in a city where there were lots of cars. Now we live here: Where there are lots of these: And a few of these: One of the many good things about it round here is that there are many Paths […]

Hiya! It is I, Bruce. I am here to tell you about a Fun Walk I had yesterday at Braid Hill with Kate and my buddy, Felix. This walk (which is one of my favourites) begins by Golf Course. Golf Courses are very mysterious human spaces: men walk purposefully about them with large bags and […]
