In Which we cast Dog as the Hobbit and Pup as a Goblin
It is raining … it has been lashing down all day. The dogs have ventured out briefly several times but they really don’t want to have to! and I cannot really blame them. The novelty of me putting the umbrella up has worn off and even the mop seems of less interest.
So what do you do when the kids are stuck in doors and are BORED? well you make up your own entertainment and we have done the same!
Dog and Pup had a lengthy tussle over the Air Dog toy which involved lots of vocals and I stood and photographed them. SO now I present to you … The Hobbit (we don’t do it in three parts we just get to the crux of it in one hit) starring Dog (the Hobbit); Pup (the Goblin) and Air Dog Toy (the Ring … my precious!)
On an ordinary day in sleepy little Hobbiton Dog was wondering what to do …
I also recorded some of the growling and barking dialogue and played it back to them which was very funny. A couple of times today Dog has told Pup “enough” and Pup has listened. I see a subtle change in their relationship … which is good.
Watching these two cheered me up as did finally receiving the debit card I was waiting for but what sheered me up most was a call from the bank in response to my second complaint. We have finally made some progress to resolving the problem and tomorrow I should get access to my benefit . There are still things to resolve beyond that to prevent a recurrence and make it good but the call has gone a long way to assuring me that the still put the customer’s first. The really nice touch is the staff member’s name was Faith … everyone needs Faith in their life?
So tomorrow I am going to Dundee on the bus (at the bank’s expense) to sort out the next bit and then I can also order the dog food I have been waiting to do and buy the Christmas food my gift card was supposed to get yesterday … oh and my Christmas present to myself? a new mop bucket – I am fed up of wringing the mop out by hand!
