When we were at the Ark for the Gala Day 1 and 2 went to look at the dogs who needed re-homing. They saw a dog called Tigger a 12 month old lurcher who is very handsome (NO not as handsome as me!). He has stripes like a tiger and is the same sort of dog as me.
I must say I was quite worried – what will happen to me? I didn’t want to be homeless.
But I needn’t have worried – 1 and 2 were looking for a pal for me. Someone to run with, hunt rabbits and squirrels with, someone to dive in the river with, someone else to put muddy footprints all over their nice clean bedding, to streak mud on their leather sofas …. I am so glad they can’t read!
I’m sure I left a bit of pigs ear somewhere.
What a lovely day – cool and breezy – may not suit the bipeds but keeps me nice and cool and ready to run.
Early walk round the park – some deep sniffs around the perimeter and to check out the other canines. Hearty breakfast then off to the Ark in Ashbourne . As you know this was my home for nearly a year and now I don’t live there I love to visit.
But…what a cock-up……too late for the “most handsome dog” competition – it was in the bag!
Still I met lots of my old friends who were lovely to me when I was there – just one glitch – a slip of the tongue revealed I had an Asbo for a time for being a little disruptive. I noticed 1 and 2 discussing it and giving me a quizzical look – remember to be extra cute for a few days.
It was ever so busy so they did really well. We were there past closing time and they both went into the dog part and spent a bit too long looking at those in need of a new home.
A quick snooze on the way home a nice walk and tiffin and then a snooze. They must have forgotten the Asbo because I got a pigs ear – delightful!
Time to sleep.
