Saturday – well, nearly Sunday!
The day begins with a bang.
Boss carries me down the stairs as usual. But she forgets how many steps there are and misses the last one. Her brain – didn’t know she had one, she can’t smell a seagull when it’s almost up her nose – has taken over. I don’t feel a thing. We fly across the hall. Then Boss does a four point landing against the wall: forehead first, THUMP, then two knees and a finger.
She puts me down gently on the floor before curling up on the door mat. Funny place to curl. It’s covered in my hair. She groans.
She soon gets up and out I go into the garden.
Wow! The park! White stuff all over the grass. The smells are out of this world. Mice, rats, voles, squirrels, foxes, birds and some very small creature I don’t recognise.
The sun is very bright and I cower when the shadows threaten me. But not for long because of the marvellous white stuff.
We meet Conchobhar. He smells wonderful too. Give him a quick sniff.
Whoopee! Good to be a dog today!
