Well, another year nearly over! I am 10 human years old now and recovering from a cruciate operation. Hence the shaved leg – it isn’t a fashion statement! 😊
In all my years I have not experienced such strange incidents as in the last 9 months. Most of the humans I see now in town are wearing muzzles, apparently it is because they did not learn to sit & stay!
My Dad (Dave Grant of Blum the Technical Team) has spent a lot more time at home – which has been good as he has been better able to watch over me whilst I recuperate. During the day he taps away on a black box, mutters & swears about ‘the tinterweb’. When he goes to cock his leg (a frequent occurrence these days), I get to peer at his screen and get an insight into his ‘Blum world’ that he gets so excited about.
They seem to be preparing early for Christmas as I have seen videos of MINIPRESS P decorated with flashing lights they call EASYSTICK. The lights are of course Orange (a shade of Grey to me 😊). They are very proud of this & want to invite customers to come in and play with it, but due to the current strange times they are unable to do so. There is however plenty of information they can email.
Dad often speaks into a chew sized glowing rectangle about the transition between AVENTOS HK & AVENTOS HK top that is underway. I think this is like me changing from my standard lead (which was perfectly good) to my retractable/extendable lead with a light on it. They both do fundamentally the same thing, but the latest version has more comfort, versatility & options. They keep my treats behind a door furnished with this product, in a high cupboard so I cannot reach. Although I have no hands, if I could reach it, I could easily just nudge the front of it, and it would open with TIP-ON or even SERVO-DRIVE.
So, this year Christmas will be different. There will be no Christmas party this year, Dad is actually quite pleased about this as he is a grumpy old git – doesn’t like loud music & dancing. There will be no beautifully decorated tree at Blum HQ, no secret Santa. The comforting thing though is that we will be at home together on Christmas day. Wishing you all the best for this somewhat different festive season, and perhaps more importantly a healthy & prosperous 2021!
