A Brave Wee Dug …
My wee (not so much now) man has found a new friend in my parents cairn terrier. She can be grumpy with other dogs but she seems to have taken a shine to Pup (unlike another member of her pack – Pup’s dad is not keen on this teenager who is bigger than him and more dominant). The cairn allows Pup to spread onto her bed during the day and then this evening one of the others told Pup off and the Cairn stood between them and told the other dog to leave Pup alone.
Just now at bedtime I was talking to the cairn and another (my two are both tucked up in their beds) and the cairn cried. When I looked I could see she had a wound on her shoulder. We have trimmed the hair away and in the morning she will be off to the vets for a check and some stitches. We think we know who has inflicted the wound and I am pleased to say it is definitely neither of mine.
Hopefully later tomorrow my two are going for a romp on the beach – the weather is supposed to be calm and almost balmy! am also supposed to be taking photos of Pup’s wee sister and she is wee compared to my tall lanky lad. So fingers crossed you can get photos tomorrow … until then here are my boys cosied up with the cairn.
The dogs are not the only bickering squabblers … so looking forward to my own style of peace and quiet next week!
I had a surprise greeting earlier from South Africa; I got to have a little mooch round Tesco … and then I cooked the veggies and rice put out the cold cuts and a salad. At least it cannot be said I haven’t made myself useful. Now I am just waiting for the room to cool before I settle to sleep (the heating has been on all day again because one person was chilly).
Here are a few hints as to next week’s topics … The Work Programme (the exposé); maybe an open letter to IDS; and a summary of One Little Word (OLW) 2013 and a preview of OLW 2014 … but first – the beach here we come LOL
