Scooby Dooby Doo
The title refers both to the only noise I am able to make today – a kind of high pitched whiny plea and one of my activities. I have baked biscuits for the boys! Peanut butter and Sweet Potato cookies if you please! The nicest thing is I have used Spelt flour which is supposedly less likely to cause issues of intolerance compared to wheat and since I know exactly what has gone in these I can eat them too …. Scoooby Dooooby Dooo … time for a Scooby Snack.
And here is Pup just after his first sample of the cooked biscuits. He managed to sample a little raw dough and as you can see he had got Spelt Flour all up his nose! However he hasn’t perfected the catchphrase yet so I limited him to just the one wee biscuit as a sample.
So why you are asking can I only make sounds like a cartoon dog – and a rather daft and cowardly one at that? because I have laryngitis from tree pollen getting inhaled too far! I know it is hayfever related since the whole of the inside of my head is itchy – if only I could scratch inside my ears, behind my eyes and my nose I would feel so much better. Actually if I could afford to buy some cough linctus, some cough sweets, a nasal (salt water) spray and a bottle of Actimist (yes I know that is name dropping but it is fabby stuff) eye spray I would feel fabulous! As it is I have my beeswax hayfever balm to stop me inhaling any more pollen, some paracetamol to stop (well reduce) the discomfort in my larynx, a few menthol sweeties and some soft tissues … oh and water to bathe my eye with.
The worst bit after the discomfort and making a funny noise which confuses the Pup is that everything tastes of nothing – blackcurrant squash may as well be water, delicate Earl Grey has no chance of being detected and even baked beans taste of nothing … so erm …. I am embarrassed to admit that I don;’t actually know how good the Scooby Snacks taste!
Never mind I collected the litter pick and bag frame today so hopefully tomorrow I will be feeling a little better and can go do something useful. I really hop I am feeling much better on Wednesday when I am on a course all day and then at Community Council in the evening – that will test Pup and his crate time – he will be wanting extra Scooby Snacks!
