A quick update

The year is already in full flow, and I cant believe we’re already in February.    Ive been to quite a few events too, but havent had a chance to write full event reports, so I thought I’d just write a quick diary update about this years goings on so far.

Playing with Sir and another pup

Playing with Sir and another pup

We first attended Mancsbound (January) and I got to pup out here with 1 other pup who was at the venue and also watch as both my Sirs got to tie up and torment a friend of ours to a table.   I didn’t get bound this time, which was a shame, but we had a really good night here.

We then attended the Pup Social the week after on the 24th, and although we couldn’t make the entire weekend, we managed to make from 3pm to 7pm on the Saturday afternoon at Boltz.    There were loads of pups there, and is the biggest pup gathering ive attended to date, and I got to

Playing with lots of pups & Xanto

Playing with lots of pups & Xanto

play with lots of pups and thoroughly enjoyed myself, including getting to spend some more time with Xanto, and also a bit of time admiring his handler Red Skull who I really only met face to face for the first time at the event.     We are definitely going back for their March event 27th-29th and staying over this time, so if anyone wants to join in, let me know.

And we attended the KINK night put on by the Kinksters the weekend after this.    Again, this was a great night, and getting busier as more people find out about the night and Townhouse venue in Birkenhead.   I was just with  Tony this time and the crowd was more varied so he got to play with a submissive daddy, and I got to hang out with pups in the play-space.     My new favourite game is pass the toy (without dropping). I did manage to put a small hole in my rubber suit, which I’ll need to get repaired, and left without actually playing with anyone (except maybe counting getting to tie Lanxpup to the rack and lick and snog him) – but I definitely need to pre-agree playing with people more at this excellent venue, as I totally wanna strap a sub into the wheel and torment the life out of them when we go to the next one in May.

So we are into February already (this year is going fast) and we are off to Brum in a couple of weeks for Midsbears and a visit to Boltz so that should be fun too for the weekend of 20th/21st…

Rope club & Ladies

We started the new year off by attending a “rope tying” event at Townhouse.     We’ve attended Townhouse for the Kink nights organised by the Kinksters, which are male only nights in a fantastic sex-club venue.    Townhouse itself is located just outside Birkenhead, but in a quiet area, and the BDSM facilities in there are great.    Its run as a straight sex club, with some good themed nights (you’ll find more on Fetlife if you look), and at the last Kink event, Sir was talking to the owner who mentioned to him that if he was interested in rope he should attend this event in the new year as they would have a Shibari master there.

We didn’t really know what to expect when we turned up but the venue was very very busy with a lot of straight couples and  singles all checking into the venue.  I decided that i’d just go along with the flow of things as Sir really wanted a model to practice rope work on, and that was my role for the day.     I’d taken my pup gear with me and was wearing my neoprene underneath a set of trackie bottoms and my puppy t-shirt.      The event organisers were really friendly.  They spotted immediately that we were new to the event (which turns out runs monthly) and came over and introduced  themselves.   We were the only gays in the village at the event, so we weren’t difficult to spot, but the people attending were really really friendly and it was great to see how well they all got on, and how social it was.

The organiser started to split people up into groups, ranging from beginners and newbies to the event through to experienced people.   It was at this point I felt we shouldn’t really go in the beginners group as Sir is a lot more experienced than he realises in terms of his tying.   However, when they started asking if he knew how to tie certain knots, the terminology was alien to him, so we decided to go into the beginners group.   We were all ushered to a big room on the top floor of Townhouse where we all sat down and a few of the people who had been attending for a while started to demonstrate basic knots.

It was at this point that something I had joked about in the car on the way to the venue actually happened.    Because it was going to be a mixed event, in a venue near where I grew up, I had joked on the way there about awkwardly bumping into someone I knew from where I worked or family.    As it turns out the aunt of one of my godchildren was in the room with us, and as we introduced ourselves around in a group, she loudly proclaimed “oh my, you’re Brian and Tony!”.    It was awkward, but a few facebook messages later after the event, I think we agreed that the 1st rule of Ropeclub is that we wont speak about Ropeclub, and what goes on in Townhouse will stay in Townhouse!

A few people didn’t have rope, so Tony offered some of his and then after the demonstration of the first knot, then asked a question about some other knots that were easier to tie, and demonstrated them.    It was at this point that the person demonstrating asked Tony what the hell he was doing in this beginners group, and we got politely evicted to go and join the intermediate groups on the lower floor.

On arrival downstairs, the guy running the group and Tony got some one on one time to discuss his experience, and Tony used me to demonstrate the rope cage.   So I was fully roped up, from top to bottom  in the middle of the room whilst Tony then proceeded to help another couple.     I laughed at how Sir had such an aversion to touching the girl’s breast who was being tied up, as he showed the couple how the knots were tied.  Given that we were in the middle of a sex club, during the day, with women, its amazing how out of our comfort zones we both were at times.    We had to leave as it got to early evening, and I had no idea what happened during the event as the evening got later, as if its anything like Kink, people’s inhibitions disappear and they start to play, and I’m not sure if we were ready for that.

I couldn’t find my pup headspace during the day.  I’d love to go back into that environment with some other pups as I think they’d be receptive to pups being there, but even just being tied up and helpless in a room full of women felt very strange.   Its definitely something I realise is outside my comfort zone that I’m intrigued to follow up though, and there were some cute single bi guys in the group, I hope turn up to Kink at some point, so I can say hello properly :)

 

 

 

 

Xmas and New Year in Berlin

We spent Christmas day and New Year in Berlin this year, for a total change to our holiday,    It was nice to have a long break of a week, and also nice to experience Berlin at a different time of year.

We stayed in the Quentin Design Hotel, located right next door to Gear, so in the heart of the gay district.   Its a nicely designed hotel, although I think it may be our last stay here, as this visit cemented that renting an apartment gives you a little bit more freedom whilst in Berlin,  and a weeks stay is a lot of meals and eating out to plan.    Although I love the hotel, the cleaning service over Christmas and the care and attention to detail was a little lacking.

What I envisaged would be a weeks kink-fest actually turned into a quieter more serene and peaceful holiday break.     Lots of places had weird opening times over this week, but we mainly frequented Prinznecht (which was decorated superbly over Christmas, and very much in line with the festive spirit), Woof!, Scheune and New Action. A sports kit party on Scheune was interesting when a group of 6 Australian rugby guys turned up in rugby kit.    We spent our NYE in New Action dressed in our Kink gear, but it was a lot quieter than previously during the week.       We didn’t get chance to go to Mutschmanns, Quaelgeist, or Connections.  But I think a lot of the time, the mood just wasn’t there to play, so we had a quiet relaxing holiday instead.

Berlin is really pretty with its Christmas markets on the main high street, and the snow that we had on Boxing day made Berlin feel like a real magical place.        I think I may be done with the city itself now, in terms of places I haven’t explored, but we have rebooked our flights and tickets for Folsom in September 2015, and booked our usual 8 person apartment, so I’m looking forward to exploring the kink and nice side of Berlin with friends again later in the year.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year everyone

Me in my skin gear

Me in my skin gear

Well it has been a revolutionary year for me in many ways.   Its had its highs and its very lows throughout, but I think I’d like to sit here and reflect on the fact that I’m a much happier pup at the end of it, and there’s a lot more  that I want to explore in 2015.

2014 started with me exploring more my feelings of playing in a pup head-space following on from Folsom last year when we met up with  the gorgeous @PupParker and got to play with him.    It had started with Tony and I playing with him as two Sirs, before some sock play with one of my sweaty socks soon had both of us on the floor, and fighting over who was gonna chew on it.     So the beginning of the year had me wanting to explore more of my submissive side again.

We saw the New Year in at Boltz, which was our first time in the club, and somewhere that we’ve been back to many times over the year.   It has to be the best Fetish club really in terms of play space areas and Birmingham is great to stay in and we’ve made many friends with the Midsbears group and the excellent Eden bar.    My favourite nights of the year have been going there and staying for the weekend.      Its been a pity that we’ve not made it down at the end of this year to Midsbears a lot, but I wanna make sure we go a lot more in 2015.

 

Taken by the guys at Alert!

Taken by the guys at Alert!

We’ve attended Alert! and met some really good people there, although the Alert night itself is becoming a bit “same old, same old”, so I am much preferring the new Mancsbound night that we attended for the first time at the end of the year.    I will be making that a LOT more in 2015.

IMG_1750I also started out the year “pervecamming” a lot, at scally looking lads around town and in the supermarkets.   Although Ive changed my phone since and not being doing a lot of it, I stil pervecam a lot in my head at guys i see around town in trackies, socks and trainers.   I think the scally look is definitely something that turns me on, and Ive missed a couple of sportskit and sock parties this year that Im gutted about, so I’m gonna make more of an effort to concentrate on my sock fetish next year.

10176011_10154005127270578_1477372492_nWe got to take a trip to Vegas for the Smokeout Event in April and meet up with our Texan friends out there, and had an amazing social time with lots of horny blokes.   We then headed off to San Francisco where I got to meet up with @PupParker again and his amazing Sir @biggermac who we spent a bit more time with socially as pup was working.    10151763_10154020845860578_1084788325_n998965_10154030474080578_1833501791648158977_n My only regret is we had to cut our trip short when we heard that my mother-in-law was ill, and we headed back to see her before she sadly passed away.   She will be missed a lot in both of our lives.

We got back into the swing of the fetish scene in July though with a trip to London Fetish Week.    I didn’t really enjoy the organised event that much but did really enjoy getting to attend “Fetishbound” for the first time on the Friday night.  Realising that this is the same venue that hold FeetonFriday too,  I wanna make sure that I visit again during 2015.      I also really enjoyed the social leather event held in the park, so I will see if I can time a weekend visit to get to both.

My fetish for feet and socks is still there, and I’ve gotten to explore that a lot more too (and had some nice donations of sweaty socks too), which combined with pup play, and getting to be at socks is my favourite pastime.     I’ve also bought a fair few sock related fetish tshirts this year, including the excellent @drubskin range, more Moodybear shirts, and a few more from gear in Berlin.

Berlin was thoroughly enjoyed this year.   We took over two new friends of ours to introduce them to the event, and I got to get to know the Tskinpack a little better (again, hoping to meet more in 2015), spending a lot more time with them, and finally at the boots and socks of Tyke and some Superpup cuddles.  Visited Qualgeist for the first time.   I also managed to pup-out for the main day at Folsom,  which was totally amazing.   Its the most comfortable and like myself I’ve felt at a Folsom so far, and the support of my friends during the day (and the shocks of a few too when they realised it was me) made me feel amazing. Big thanks to Gary, Joe, Steve & Daddy here for the great night spent in the Bear Bar.

Another big part of my year has been getting to know my new Sir @deadliftbear too.    He is now an integrated part of our leather family, and a Sir that I never thought I’d have that fits so perfectly in design with Tony and I.   He is so gorgeous in terms of his personality and his body too. I just wanna hug his leg and lick him  permanently!    I think this year has only just started our journey together, but I’m hoping that our family grows and I get a pup to play with during 2015. (I currently feel like the little girl in Miracle on 34th street wishing for brother!)    Its difficult to find a pup to fit, but I have been meeting the most amazing people at events, and I hope that I get to play with them a lot more net year.

We also did Bristol Leather Weekend for the first time, and met a lot of people there and had a brilliant time with both Sirs and the gorgeous @themoodybear.       I’m also hoping that I get to spend more time with him, when he is not working.

My sirs and me

My sirs and me

And we met up with the @thekinksters too, two local fellas who have created a great new kink event in Birkenhead, which although in its infancy has already exploded with fun in 2014, and looks to only get better in 2015 now the event will be held on a Friday night.

My interactions with other pups have been pretty limited this year.   I do find the pack mentality a bit difficult to break into, but packs can be complicated to work out how they all function together.

Meeting Superpup during the daytme

Meeting Superpup during the daytme

As someone who considers myself to be an alpha pup, I’ve been looking for beta pups to play with on a regular basis, and have had a couple of interactions with pups that got me totally more excited for further play and a regular friend.  @themoodybear @superpup6901 @pupxanto and @lanxpup can take the thanks for that.

IMG_2356But finally, my biggest thanks of all go to my husband and my Sir, Daddy Tony.   Its only because of him that I get to explore these things.  I love him so much, he is always there for him and I will always be there for him and I know we will be together forever.    He is enjoying training @deadliftbear as his boy.  He has further explored his cigar smoking and mentoring this year.    Its a pleasure to serve him when he needs me, and a pleasure to see him enjoying himself too.

So, to summarise in 2015, I definitely want to get to more events and meet more like-minded pups for fun.  We’ve already booked in our Folsom Weekend for September 2015 and have some spare beds for anyone that’s interested in staying with us.    We also have a lot of things already booked in our Calendar (see top right links) for the new year, and as I type we are about to head over to Berlin for Christmas and New Year, which should be fun too!   I also really wanna get to Seattle at some point and hopefully meet the NoSafeWord guys  (#ourlivesdonotsuck) – its been too long and Tony has already been on twice!

To all of you that I know, and to anyone who follows this, then Merry Christmas, have a good one, and have a great New Year and see you in 2015.  Loves ya loads x x

2nd Kinksters night

Its taken me a bit of time to publish something regarding the 2nd Kink night that we attended from the Kinksters.    This was going to be a different sort of night for me from the 1st one, as I had my 2nd Sir also up for the weekend, as he kindly stayed on for an extra night so that we could go to the event as one big leather family (except I was in my rubber!).     It was really nice for the venue’s bar staff to actually ask if we were a leather family on the evening.

My sirs and me

My sirs and me

I went there in my rubber gear to start off with, with the intention of pupping out when my Sirs were ready.  We were greeted at reception as usual by the great friendly staff, and we got into the bar and had  a drink.  I also waited for D, a new boy who wanted to attend the event and his first kink event too.  I’ve met him and had a quick session in our playroom, and he wants to explore the kink scene a little more.  He’s calling me boss already, so it bodes well for him to become my beta at some stage.   He’s had a couple of kink sessions in the past with guys who simply used him as  a sub to lick their boots, but he got very little out of it in return.   I’m hoping to show him that he should be getting just as much enjoyment out of things that turn him on as his boss or Sir should.      It wasn’t long before he got to reception and I introduced him to my Sirs and then gave him a tour of the facilities and then helped him get changed into his rubber and a pair of boots and socks I lent him for the evening.    I’m letting him have a lovely new pair of white footy socks on the understanding that he is never to wash them and to wear them when he wants to please me.

After a quick drink, we also met W, a lad we had met from Wrexham who was very nervous about attending his first fetish event.   W had been over and met Tony and I, but we’ve not played with him – although it was actually him that first told us of the KINK event being organised in Birkenhead that we followed up on.    Because D and W were both attending the event for the first time, I think this helped, although W needed to take a few time-out breaks to chill out and I think that now the back is broken of attending a kink event for the first time, he will enjoy the 2nd event so much more.

It made me realise how lucky I am really to feel comfortable attending such events.   Before I met Tony I would have never had the courage to attend on my own.    The thought of even going to a gay bar at the time used to make me feel like I had a burning ball in the pit of my stomach with nerves.     There’s not a lot you can do to overcome this feeling, other than actually do what’s making you nervous which is why I think its such an achievement when guys do take a step to attending kink events for the 1st time.

For me, I was able to leave them alone when my 2 Sirs wanted me to get into pup mode, and this was something that D had been looking forward to seeing, as he had only seen me as a boss telling him what to do.   I didn’t know how I’d feel about it, as when I switch, its normal to just have people you play with in such roles see you in those roles, but I wasn’t letting the opportunity to pup out this time going to slip away.      The organisers had moved the pup playroom to the top floor, including some mats with lots of toys and for my first time ever, bubbles!   Pup discovered that he loves popping bubbles!

As usual, it was great having both Sirs there to handle me at points in the night.     We had been to Mancsbound on the Friday night ( review on my blog also) and they’d tied me up there before a little pupping out, but I loved the toy games I got to play to with them both.        It was great to spend that final time with Sir Darren too at the end of the weekend, and made it feel like such a long one.  It was his first time at this event too, and I think he enjoyed it.

Seeing the lads from my pup side, also made me wanna play with them too!    I think they both appreciated the head-space of pup play.      Its definitely something I would wanna explore with them both as a handler if I get the chance.   There was also a cute pup in the playspace, but he didn’t seem that keen on socialising but it was fun to throw him a few toys.

The event was brilliantly managed by the Kinsters and I caught one demo of @pupmylo being cuffed in the sling, and suffering from a ball crushing device whilst he breathed through a mask and breathing bottle.  Totally hot, and everyone watching thought it was totally hot too. (I could tell from the number of hands over crotches!).  I also bought a new hood from them on the night (of which I’ll post a review when I get chance).

I also really enjoyed chatting to one of the female bar staff, who again, was really helpful on the night but loves puppies!    She asked if I would attend one of the other nights held at townhouse so that I could pup out for her as she loves it when Mylo attends and she loves pups, which I am really honoured to be asked, and strangely intrigued at the thought of being handled by a female.

So I got to pup out and watch some of the demonstrations too (vac racking was horny) for a good couple of hours before my Sirs were pretty tired and wanted to head home.      W had left too because of work in the morning, and I was dropping Sir Darren off at the station early, so we headed off just before midnight.     I’m really looking forward to the event being on a Saturday so that we can stay later.

I also really enjoyed the slave-auction that was held for THT.   They were in attendance doing free HIV checks, and there were 5 volunteers for being used for an hour.    Although I was a little gutted there were no pups for auction!    I cross-bidded on two of the volunteers who were spanked and tickled in the dungeon for an hour, so I managed to get in some time helping to use them :))  I was going to volunteer too, but Sirs weren’t too happy at the thought (even though there was nothing stopping them from bidding!)

Again, a brilliant night, and I’m SO looking forward to the next one being held on 30th January and the opportunity to play with the lads and pup out again.

Mancsbound – November

We’ve been promising for ages to get to this event in Manchester, but it falls on a Friday and it starts fairly early (7pm-11pm) in the back of the black Eagle.      That normally means I don’t have time to get home from work and then head over, however with Sir Darren coming up for the weekend, we all made a conscious effort to head over to the event.

Caged

Caged

It wasn’t that busy in the black Eagle with us and around 5 other guys there on the night, but because there was lots of space to then play in and I had my two Sirs there, they inevitably wanted to to utilise the facilities, which I was most grateful.         It started with me being tied into the cage in there  I was actually quite surprised I fitted,  and they roped my arms to the side of the cage and then placed a rope gag in my mouth as I talking just a little bit too much whilst inside there.    That was partly due to the excitement of the night and getting to see Sir Darren again, as I enjoy being in his company so much and being of use when he needs me.    I sorta realised that we miss a cage in our playroom of some description as I think I’d like to have a standing one for longer term storage.

Chairbound

Chairbound

Because I was able to still move my arms and managed to spit out the rope gag a couple of times when in the cage, I was taken out and then Sir Tony bound me to a chair that was over in the corner of the room.     I still had the rope gag on which was a piece of rope that the organiser Terry had in his pile.   It tasted very salty so I’m not sure what it had been used for in the past,  but i added my own slobber onto it as the night progressed.   I was also tickled regularly by Sir Darren which made me behave a lot more, and beg him to stop of course..

Gagged and hooded

Gagged and hooded

I was still able to adjust my jaw to get the rope gag out when i needed to, so Terry kindly then introduced me for the first time to the medical wrap.   I’ve not been in this before, but I have to say its a great way to mummify the head, as you can still breathe through it, hear a lot better, but then cant see a thing.     I hate being blindfolded.   I see this as a proper punishment, as Im so nosy and love watching what goes on, especially in a club.   Being blindfolded in a bar is another thing altogether as it totally puts you on edge and I was constantly listening out for what or who was around and what was going to happen to me, but instead my Sirs decided to practice rope harnesses on each other -something I would have loved to seen, but instead I had to sit there patiently, so it was proper punishment for my earlier cheekiness for spitting out the gag.

Pup

Pup

Because I sat there patiently, I was finally rewarded with some pup time, at the end before we headed off home.    The time seemed to fly by, but we were there for the full 4 hours and a bit more by the time we packed up to leave.

In all, it was a really good night, and in a way I was glad that it was as quiet as it was, but this event should be a lot busier, as Terry has put a lot of hard work into getting it going, and it does remind me a lot of Fetishbound from down in London.     We certainly now aim and will put in the extra effor to get to the future events, and I’m looking forward to definitely attending again in January with both Sirs too.    *bounce*

 

Boltz : Full on Fetish – November

Full on Fetish flyer

Full on Fetish flyer

We’ve been to Boltz a couple of times now, in Birmingham, and its a great venue for Kink events.   It has a much better set of play-spaces than any club in Manchester, and the venue is big with a good outside smoking area too.     This post is more a diary than a review however, as this was one of the best nights I’ve had ever, and the first enjoying my time as Pup Zalo since being collared.   The good thing about kink nights at Boltz is that they usually occur on a Saturday, allowing time to travel and prep at a weekend. I was gutted about not meeting Superpup and Moodybear there who unfortunately couldn’t make it.

I was excited anyway, about the night as we had agreed to meet my other Sir Darren (@deadliftbear) in Birmingham on the day, and he was going to stay with us.   Although I attempted to get our double room converted to a family room, the lack of availability to swap meant that I happily volunteered to sleep on the floor, and give up my bed for my Sir.     Mentally, this was amazing for me, which I’ll come onto later, but it made me so happy to know that I was doing that for him, and a real buzz to sleep on the floor like a proper pup.

We met up in brum around 4pm in EAT and went to the room where we chilled out and had loads of hugs and a rest, before we went out for something to eat, in the chinese all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant, we’d previously visited with Midsbears.   Sir Darren met a friend from London with two of his leather friends, so the 6 of us ended getting a table, and it was great to meet some new friends and eat.    Eating lots before an event, is never a good thing for me so I was careful not to have too much otherwise i’d just wanna go to sleep!

Me in my new hood and catsuit

Me in my new hood and catsuit

By the time we got back to the room and eventually got changed and ready (for which I took most of the time!) we headed to the event around 11, which was probably a little bit later than I expected, but it was still really busy.     I wore out my new rubber catsuit, rubber socks, boots and my new rubber hood from Wet Hot Rubber.

Unpacking of my new hood

Unpacking of my new hood

I love this hood to bits.   It arrived only a week earlier, and this was to be my first time out wearing it, but I specifically wanted something that matched the colouring of my leather hood, but would give me something in rubber with the same functionality of my leather hood.

New Hood with sock in the mouthpiece

New Hood with sock in the mouthpiece

The hood itself is SO well made.  It has detachable ears, a detachable muzzle, a padded eye-mask, and a pecker gag that can all be snapped into place.    I particularly wanted a mask where the nose & mouth piece could have a masters socks placed, so that I can only smell them (or the poppers that they might contain) when wearing it.    The detachable pieces, also mean that I could order different pieces in future if I needed (colours for example, but I’m pretty sure I’m happy with blue!).

My one piece suit that I ordered from Recon is incredibly good value too.   It has the correct number of zips for pup play, that allow separate access to cock and arse and great for putting in a tail, or poking out your front tail!

So when we got to the event, the changing area (which is actually just a small corridor by the reception) was full of guys getting undressed into their jocks.   As I needed to remove my tracksuit bottoms and t-shirt and also then get on my hood (and its not particularly well lit) we decided to move on into the bar, and then the outside smoking area in order to get ready.     The area was pretty quiet with a few leather masters having a smoke out there, so we grabbed a table and I started to get ready.    When I turned round, both Sirs had gone to get a drink, and I suddenly realised I was on my own with the guys that we had met earlier in the restaurant.    For some reason, I was then incredibly nervous.  Somehow being in rubber around a load of leather men made really self-conscious.   I’m not normally a “stand-out from the crowd” type of person, which I think is why I felt a little out of my depth, but when both Sirs returned with drinks, and then Tony put my hood on me I started to get into pup mode , I still felt very shy and nervous around this new crowd.     I also realised that rubber lets you get a hell of a lot colder than leather does.     Sir asked if I wanted to go and stand on my own under the heat lamp outside, but again, the thought of standing on my own made me very nervous!      So I stuck to Sir a bit like glue at first, not really wanting to move until I felt more comfortable, and even his offer to go and throw the stick so I could fetch was met with resistance.  If he had thrown it, I would have just sat there looking at him to go get it – something our bio-pup now does with regularity.   The weight of my new leash helped though, as I’d bought Sirs some presents before we headed out.  Each of them had an S&M Pup hanky to wear (although I then realised that Langlitz dont have back pockets!) and I bought my Sir Tony a new lead with a really heavy chain (which I knew I would get some use from!)

Sirs could tell I was getting cold though, so after they’d had a smoke we moved inside and found a quieter area just to the right of the dark room.   This allowed both my sirs to sit down, and for me to have a small floor space to sit and solo play in.     I was really happy just being on a lead at this point and being handled by Sir Darren.    After managing to get biscuit on his boots, it was an honour to lick them clean for him.    I also got patted by a few passers by and   I also got to people watch a great deal, watching some gorgeous men and pups head into the dark room area,  and we met a few friends who wandered through.

After a while of playing, and earning some well deserved pup treats specially baked by Sir Darren, we decided to head back outside so that Sirs could have another smoke, which is where I got to play for the first time with another pup I knew,  @pupxanto  -   I’d barked at him a few times as we’d passed in the club, but he came pouncing over in the outside area and we immediately started playing.  Dressed in his red invincible rubber catsuit and rubber hood, he looked amazing.   it didn’t take long before we were getting a bit boisterous with some head nuzzling, and pushing along with a couple of chases and hides.      I realised that my weight can be an advantage as a pup when being pushed and my alpha side kicked in to push back, but I may have been a little boisterous myself, being told off by Sirs a couple of times for bullying him as he went and hid behind his friend.   It didn’t take long for him to come back so we could play some more though.     I have no idea how long we played for, it felt like hours, but was such a primal head-rush for me, playing with another pup as Sirs watched on.   The smell of him and his rubber, as I got to sniff and rub against him was intoxicating.     I just felt so lucky getting to meet and play with him, and totally have a pup crush on him, as I’m sure most other pups & handlers do.

Sirs told us it was time to go, and we both rested for a few minutes before being unhooded, but I was still totally in pup mode and then was told it was 4am!      I really didn’t wanna leave.  I’d have happily curled up with Xanto and slept there and then, but I went back to the room with Sirs and then was able to shower, jump on the bed to give both Sirs goodnight kisses and cuddles, and then was told to get onto my pup bed in the corner of the room.   As I snuggled down, I probably felt the most contented as a pup right there and then.     Such an amazing night.

But the morning was great too, as I awoke I was able to pounce on both Sirs in bed, and we had some great fun and I made sure both Sirs were happy before heading to breakfast at the brilliant greasy spoon – it was only really at this point my head  started to leave pup space before we headed to the station to see Sir Darren back onto the train.

Bristol LeatherWest Weekend

Sir had a great interest in going to this first arranged weekend.    I personally haven’t been down to Bristol in around 10 years.   However,   I was really looking forward to it, as it was going to be a chance to meet up again with my other Sir (@deadliftbear) and spend some more time with Andy (@themoodybear) who was also joining us for the weekend.

The Friday started with us getting to the nominated hotel around 7.30pm in the evening.   The Friday’s events were listed as a Welcome Party and then a BLUF event/dinner too.      We aren’t members of BLUF.  Sir has a bit of an issue with the concept of it all, so we’ve never joined and decided that for the first night we would just go out for a meal to catch up and then on to the welcome party.   The hotel “Future Inns” was situated right across from the Cabot Circus Shopping centre, an excellently placed for the short walk to the gay bars of Bristol too (would recommend it, for anyone wanting to check out the area).    We ate in TGI Fridays, which was busy for a Friday night, and then went to the Bristol Bear Bar but got there at around 9.30pm.   We had obviously missed the crowd because besides the 2 lovely gentlemen on the door who explained what was going on, there was no-one in there in leather and most of the crowd had headed off to the BLUF party.     After half an hour in the Bristol Bear bar, we headed to the venue that had hosted the BLUF night, as someone had mentioned that there was also  a bar there too, you could get into even if not a BLUF member, so we headed there and the atmosphere was much better.  Albeit, Tony and Darren spent  a lot of time outside smoking cigars and talking to the leathermen, Andy and I stayed inside minding the drinks but also engaging in a bit of pup howling along to the 80′s records being pumped out at the bar.  It was good to catch up with Neil, who was the official photographer at the event, and the initial pics he’s been posting have been great, although I don’t think we had a single picture taken all weekend, but that’s easy to explain with all the gorgeous leather-men around.

The BLUF event was downstairs, and we were told that there was quite an ornament in that of a leather boy strapped to the pool table downstairs, but I didn’t venture down, nor have I seen any photo’s circulating online.      We didn’t have too late  a night and we wandered home not too late. Darren wasn’t feeling too well, something we now put down to the TGI food or a bug that each one of us suffered with over the course of the weekend.

The Saturday was met with breakfast at the hotel (included in the price of a great value room package organised by the BLW team), and then we went onto the Puppy Training Workshop being organised by @bootbrush and his master.     Having never done any official training, I was really looking forward to this, so we headed back to the Retreat, this time to venture downstairs.     Unfortunately the venue downstairs was tiny, and the workshop was taking place in a room far too small for the people who were in attendance.    We all crammed in, and the workshop was really really informative and I got to wear my gear during the 2nd half and sit down by Master, but at the end of the workshop, Tony encountered the same TGI/Bug and we all left early.      I  had hoped that the workshop would give an opportunity for more practical training (i’m not sure why, but in my head I imagined a Barbara Woodhouse style training school!), but poor Bootbrush was totally hindered by the space issue at the venue.    I would totally recommend attending any other training sessions that they put on, as its full of things I hadn’t thought about and really good training for handlers or prospective handlers too.

We got a couple of hours downtime so that Tony could recover for the evenings celebration, then ended up going to Bella Italia for food, and then all went out in our leathers for the main event which was back at the Retreat venue.    I just went out in my leather gear, as there didn’t seem any appetite to pup out further, and we got to Retreat bar as they were starting the final judging of the Mr Leatherwest.  All the contestants were hot as hell, and the technology behind voting via an app that you could download for the weekend was stunning.     In all honestly, I felt a bit out of it at the event – the venue was really crowded to get everyone into it, and a lot of people stood outside for the majority of the evening which was  good as it was fairly mild.    A highlight of the night was meeting (or rather getting to see) @pupxanto as he looked amazing in his leather motorcycle one-piece and pup hood.    I headed back to the hotel early though and had an early night as the TGI/Bug hit and I felt really rotten towards the end.  Although I did hear of his pupping exploits outside of The Palace later that evening, which sounded fun.

IMG_2927Sunday was tinged with sadness as we had to head back fairly early, so after a quick breakfast and saying goodbye with as many hugs as I could fit in with Darren, we left for the journey back.  I also managed to get all the puppy treats that Darren made, so I enjoyed them when I got back!

I really enjoyed the 1st weekend, and would definitely do it again, although I hope they could find a larger venue for the main parties really.   The people there though were all so friendly, it made for a great weekend.  Next year, the event is going to be “UK Leather Pride“, so it will be interesting to see what changes this has.

Our Diary

I’ve added a copy of our Google diary onto the website (top right hand links) , as I know that we are very, very fortunate  in the fact we get to attend a lot of kink events.

I’ve recently been looking for a pup and we’ve got a lot of really close friends and subs that I wish I could spend a lot more time with, so the diary is really there to show the events we are planning to attend.      Any event marked in RED is a kink/fetish event (green just indicates our unavailability) and I’d like to make sure to extend an open invitation to all of our friends to join us on ANY of these events.     It becomes a bit of a logistical nightmare to invite everyone to them all, but if you fancy coming along or meeting us there to say hello, then please do so and drop me a tweet or message.

Our 7th Anniversary : I’m collared & named!

As those of you who have followed this blog and also my twitter account @DT_BRI may have noticed, I’ve changed my details to Pup Zalo.    My journey of me being a pup only started a year ago with a playful session with @pupparker when he was at Folsom, but its something that I’ve associated with more and more on the kink side in both of my switch roles as a pup and when I am in the mood, as a handler.   When playing in kink, I prefer a more teasing, playful and sexual approach to leather and rubber, so the pup head-space really fits with my sexual personality.   Although my search for a pup of my own, so I am also a full time handler, still continues I’ve been working up to playing in pup head-space for more and more time this year, and at Folsom it ended up with me spending the day as  a pup to my Sir.

My new pup chain and lock

My new pup chain and lock

On the morning of our 7th Anniversary on October 13th, I awoke to the lovely present of a locked collar and chain from my hubby and Sir, along with the new name.

I love it,  I didn’t expect it, and the name Zalo is derived from the latin name for a sealion “Zalophus Californianus ”.      When I was in San Francisco, we went to Pier 39 where there were a family of sealions (around 60 or so of them) all living on the jetty.    I was mesmerised by them, not only because they were beautiful to look at, but because of their interactions between themselves in larger crowds.    The younger “pups” were all extremely playful and very adept at wrestling with each other and so kind and loving at the same time.   I commented at the time that this was the type of pup play I most associated with, as puppies in the form of canine pups always seem a little but more independent of each other, and less rubber like too!

I’m proud of my name, and I look forward to pupping out in both leather and rubber soon.     I’ve not really had  a chance to be pupped out and in pup head space since Folsom, so six weeks on and I’m desperate for a good pup  session in my Zalo headspace.   Having recently sat through the pup-play course at Bristol Leather Weekend (review coming soon) I do feel day by day more pup like in the things I do and the interactions that I have with people too.    *licks* to you all ;)
