Fuss but no food

Out for breakfast with my mum today but no food for me.  She said 1) I’d already had mine, 2) avocado is a fruit and dogs don’t eat fruit, plus 3) I do not get fed in cafés.  But I had lots of fuss and admiration from customers and staff which made up for being starved.

Who could resist my appealing look?  Yes, my mum can…

Today it was the turn of Kith and Kin, one of the lovely dog friendly cafés in  our town.  http://eveogilvie.co.uk


I take the lead


We were out for such a long time this morning – breakfast in our favourite café (bits of sausage for me) then food shopping (tuna and sardines, hope I get a sample) for Marley.  When I got a whiff that we were homeward bound I decided to take the lead.  I’m very good at this and know the way.  We were back in no time at all.

What a bummer!

Having a wonderful outdoor romp at the weekend with my Irish mum then, oops, somehow there’s a big pink blob of bubblegum on my bum, complete with wrapper.  She berates me, tries to get it off, fails so says she’ll sort it when we get home.  Being a no nonsense kind of girl, she doesn’t google to find a non-invasive remedy*, but gets the scissors out real quick and chops a great chunk of fur from my bum.

Come today: she returns me to my mum (who is still alseep in bed) and leaves a card detailing my activities this morning – been to the park, been to the shops, been fed.  Duh, I can usually play dumb and get another breakfast when my mum comes down.  What a bummer!

* Apparently rubbing peanut butter or cooking oil into bubblegum or chewing gum will help get it off furry surfaces. http://www.wikihow.com/Remove-Chewing-Gum-from-a-Dog’s-Hair
