Ohhhh Soooo Slow!

A nice cup of tea (and a sit down). A Denby te...

I don’t know how it works for you dogs out there but I am getting a little cheesed off with my pack.

They are irritatingly slow! Take any morning. Number 1 comes in and wakes me. A moment or two to get my bearings, and perhaps some affectionate stroking, and I am ready for anything.

Him – not so – kettle on, scratching, yawning, squeeezing tea bags, fridge – milk. Then takes two mugs upstairs, chats to comatose number 2, considers the weather, selects appropriate attire, dresses very slowly – bathroom – some very minor titivation. Then down the stairs. Ready? No chance.

Which coat – if any, which shoes or boots, lead, collar, poo bags, balls, flinger, unlock doors and then BLASTOFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NO! Turns round to check whether he needs to take keys or not. You can imagine – by this time I am spitting feathers.

Then we’re out at long last. I could have done a mile and a fascinating selection of toilets by now.

Please help – how can I train them to get their fingers out?

Wot a lovely day  Рit was sunny and I got lots of attention. Met people who were nice to me when I lived in the Ark Рit felt really good.

I was a bit nervous about going back but really glad I did.

Managed to distract 1 and 2 every time we went past the dogwash.

Bit concerned when 1 spent time looking at the other dogs who want a new home – might have to share my dinner – could starve!

All of you please rescue a dog – so long as you are kind, have the time and are in it for the long run.

Afternoon tea was brilliant, I looked my most plantive and people were queuing up to give me chunks of ham sandwich and pieces of cake – is part of the human 5 a day?
