Hot Dog

Posted in Hobbes by Andrew Spender on July 27, 2010

The heat hasn’t abated after a scorching July. We’ve had 14 days of near 100 / 39 degree weather. We’re toast, but imagine wearing a fur coat in this heat? Poor Hobbes. He can’t climb in front of the air conditioning in the windows, but he’s worked out that hugging the floor fan helps.

Shhhh – I’m schnoozin’

Posted in Hobbes, NYC by Andrew Spender on May 16, 2010

Hobbes is enjoying his retirement in the city. Sure, it’s not Dorset or its equivalent in the US, Florida, but all the conveniences an old boy needs is on the doorstep, such as doggy shampoos and walks in the park. And for all those other times, there’s a comfy bed in the living room just perfect for a long schnooooz.

Hobbes in Central Park

Posted in Uncategorized by Andrew Spender on February 26, 2010

We took advantage of the hire car we used to get to Philadelphia last weekend to take Hobbes up to Central Park for an early morning run. Dogs are unofficially allowed to be off their leashes before 9am. It was a painful early start to a Sunday morning, but well worth it to see Hobbes go crazy around the Great Lawn in the snow.
