Friends, collies, not very clever dogs,
I’ve been feeling a bit humiliated since my last blog and think I might have over reacted a bit, to B going away. Apparently, we have to get all the Munros done by 2024 and B had to get at least one done before 16th September this year, so that it really is a ten year project.
When she came home we had big cuddles. I couldn’t help myself, even though I was still hurt and upset. Cuddles are just irresistible.
Afterwards, B told me a story. It was all about a very young dog who found a new home. He was a lovely dog but he had to learn all about living among humans, in their houses (with the delightful soft furnishings). It seems this dog didn’t have very good manners at first. He even upset an old dog – who already lived there – quite a few times. In fact he was a bit wild. He had to learn all about being friendly, but not too friendly, with people, and how to get on well with other dogs. Seemingly, he had just missed out on having on having to learn about being nice to cats, which seems a step too far; excepting yourself, of course, Tink. As if that wasn’t enough to be getting on with, he had to learn about coming back when humans called him and not chasing woolly things. Do you know something, this dog was beginning to sound like a dog I could relate to.
Anyway, the doggy’s mistress had a big project on the go and she had wanted this unruly scamp to be her buddy for the great adventure. However, he was taking a bit of time to get ready and because she had a stating date, as well as a deadline, she had to get going without him. Actually, there were a few walks where her buddy couldn’t go anyway, so she left him briefly and did one of these.
Then, WOW, WOW, WOW – Woof oh Woof – the penny just dropped. That doggy IS ME. I felt even sillier then, but we had a good laugh about it all. B told me that, because we have spent so much time together, she hasn’t got all her publicity for the project done. She is going to do it this winter and I might even be in some photos.
Me and B want to raise lots of money so that wonderful dogs, like my pen pal Bumble, can be their owners right hand helpers. Did you know that canine partners can even use a money card to help draw out cash to buy their own food. How clever is that? I have the feeling that if I could do that I would end up v v v full.
You can find out much more about those brilliant dogs here, if you have a human to help you.
I asked B if I could be a canine partner but she told me I might not have quite the right temperament, though with my cute face I might gets lots of money. It’s hurting my head a bit that. The thought of earning lots of money and not spending it on yummy food for me.
Better lie down
Love Ben xx
