In the afternoon, we met up with Trish's friend D (he doesn't like dogs much but I think he'll change his mind about me, eventually). We sat outside in the sun and Trish and D had nice food and wine but I only got water!! D says he'll have to borrow me as he noticed that all the girls were looking at me. Huh! NOW he likes me innnit!
After that Trish and I went for a stroll down the southbank which was very busy. On our way back home, two men asked Trish if they could take my photo and also another nice couple were asking about me and my breed. Trish told them about my blog so maybe they'll sign up to be my friend!

Trish did lots of housework today so Beckett and I just sat and looked out the window and watched the world go by.

We went on a train ride again but not very far this time, then we got to a lovely green space where David and Trish had a picnic. They had REALLY NICE FOOD but didn't share it with us AT ALL!
It was really sunny today so Ted and I had to drink lots of water. We chased each other, then we chased other dogs, we chased the ball (and lost it!) AND we played tug of war with a stick.
We like to rough play and it all looks really fierce sometimes because we gnash our teeth together quite a bit but we don't make any sounds and it's all really good 'cause sometime he sits on my head and then I bite his leg and he grabs my neck and it's sort of like doggie judo 'cause we roll over and over and. . . get really tired! Phew!

The first beach we went to had lots of little stones and the waves were very close and scared me at first but I'm made of stronger stuff and after I played with some children I relaxed a bit and had some fun. I even sniffed a dogfish which was lying dead on the pebbles - imagine that!
After lunch, we went back down to the beach and this time the waves were very gentle and there was sand so I ran about and played in the water with some more children and tried to kill some seaweed.
On the way home I met a nice woman on the train who said I was a VERY handsome Irish Terrier. I think she likes the windswept look . . .
Goodnight everyone, I'm off to my bed to dream of becoming a dogfish!

This one is specially for you Fo! See - that's what happens to bad toyfriends who chew Trish's (signed) Phillip Pullman's book when she was away on holiday last year! Thanks for pointing out that it was probably Beckett, it came as a shock as I really trusted him but I've had to show him who comes where in the pecking order (just this once) as generally we're bff.

Firstly my name is Irish which is only right and proper for an Irish Terrier, well I think so anyway.
The name Póg is an abbreviation. The 'P' comes from 'Peadar' which means 'Peter' in Irish and 'óg' means 'little' or 'junior' but the really cool thing is that when you join them together you get Póg (pronounced pogue) which means 'kiss'. I reckon Trish must have know that I'd grow up to be a handsome boy and that just about everyone I'd meet would want to cover me in kisses. Spooky!
Some people think I'm named after the band 'The Pogues' but really - I have MUCH nicer teeth than that Shane McGowan! It's true! Even the vet's receptionist has admired my white teeth!
I also share my name with a very special boy named Póg who lives in Co. Galway in Ireland and I hope to meet him one day soon.
The photos are of me when I was just 3 months old. Cute huh?
