a new day



There was a smile at the end of a trying day. Last night as I stood in the kitchen peeling a carrot or two, Isis, who is very fond of carrots, stood hopefully witnessing the procedure. But she couldn’t stop herself from uttering an anticipatory woof.

“Must be consistent,” I tell myself popping behind the cupboard as I do if she barks or spins when she’s waiting for her meals. But she pops round the corner and ‘finds’ me! After waiting patiently she gets her pieces of carrot.

And after yesterday’s misery, there is today’s triumph.

Isis returns from her walk this morning. Her breakfast is almost ready. She waits silently while I sprinkle on Plaqueoff. I hold the bowl and she empties it without a single yaff or growl. Amazing.

I think that this is the first time she has ever eaten a meal without threatening the imaginary wolves which surround her.


Isis came from the Aeza cat and dog rescue and adoption centre in Aljezur, Portugal. For information about adopting an animal from the centre, contact kerry@aeza.org or  www.dogwatchuk.com
