Boo hoo hoo!

I miss my mum. She's gone away for five whole weeks and I really, really miss her. It's only been a couple of days. She won't be back for ages!

The house just seems so quiet without her. I'm doing a lot of barking at the moment, just to fill the silence. Dad joins in too, although sometimes it sounds like he's shouting at me. That can't be the case, though. I mean, why would he?

Dad's been trying to make it up to me. He's been giving me extra walks 'cos he thinks I'll be easier to deal with. Ha! We'll see who wins that particular battle, won't we. I got him good and proper yesterday. He took me for a run in the morning, then put me in a crate and went to play tennis - for TWO WHOLE HOURS. So, he was running around while I was resting. When he got back, all tired and everything, did I give him hell?

What do you think?

He had to play in the garden, then down the field with the tennis balls, and then had to take me on a big walk. He was exhausted by the end of the day, but I was still up for more mischief. Last time he tries that, I reckon.

So, anyway, Dad's typing for me while mum's away, so if I sound a bit different don't worry. I've not got a cold or anything. It's just Dad. It's the way he types.

He's obviously feeling guilty about Mum going away as he's been trying to make it up to me. He took me shopping the other day and we got a new toy.

I love it. And I hate it.

I love it because it's really light and bouncy and dad kicks it up in the air. It's good to chase but never goes too far.

I hate it because I can't get it in my mouth. I can't quite get my teeth around it. I can't quite.... growwwhhh. But I'll keep trying. I'll keep trying. I'll keep trying. I'll keep trying.

I'm a terrier, you know.


  1. That looks like a super big tennis ball to us! Mitch is great at peeling the coating! Peel just enough so that you can carry it, Mojo! I'm sure you don't need Mitch to show you how but do you want me to send him anyway to help pass the time! Two Airedale pups might be all your dad needs to send him over the edge! hehehehe

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  2. Well if two airedale pups doesn't do it(like M+M said) then we know what will....2 wire fox terriers..that would surely push him right over the edge!!!!!! Love A+A

  3. Hi, Mojo!
    I know how much you miss your mom but I am sure your Dad is taking good care of you!
    I just can imagine you two barking there! Sure is fun!
    That is a big ball! I am sure you will dominate it very soon!
    Kisses and hugs

  4. Hi Mojo,

    I can't kill my giant tennis ball either. Mom got me the giant one after I ate all my small ones, and so far the evil thing has remained intact. Grrrrr. Maybe we need Mitch to give us the peel lesson. Perhaps we could both benefit from it. He he. Have fun with your Dad!

    Your pal,

  5. Hey, Mojo!

    So relieved that you're still alive without your mama there to love on you and make sure you're being fed. At least your dad is taking time away from his spy duties to take care of you properly! (Give him hell, Mojo!)

    I think you might want to take Maggie's advice about the ball. At least that way you'll be able to carry it around.

    Goober love & smooches,

  6. oh poor mojo... i hope u will be reunite with ur mum soon...

  7. We had a tennis ball once. It didn't die pretty. Maybe you could go play tennis with your Dad, too. That might be loads of fun!

    Happy Tails,

  8. G'day Mojo
    Don't worry your mum will be home before you know it. Dad's are good to though. Ours plays with us a lot and he buys us cool stuff too. Infact we got a giant tennis ball recently and it's really difficult to destroy cause it's just that bit too big.

    Hugs and tail wags

  9. Try again and again !!!!
    Kisses, Faya

  10. Mojo,

    I know how to deal with such large balls that the humans throw at us and expect us to play with.

    Open those Crocodale jaws as wide as they will go. Sink teeth into sides of ball. Ball will deflate rapidly. Now it's nice and easy to carry!

    Job done.


  11. oh Mojo!! Be kind to your dad while mum's away!! They do try!! He's even blogging for you!! I know my human dad wouldn't know the first thing about that!! BOL!

    WOW that ball is GIGANTIC!! Keep trying..you may get a tooth in there somehow!!



  12. Hi Mojo! We're pretty sure you will figure out how to get your teeth around that ball sooner or later!...even if you have to puncture it! That would be a very terrier thing to do!
