My 'oldest' bestest buddy from my school days just so happens to be a dog groomer. I chose teaching as a career but it was a close call between Kennel Maid or teaching. For all the red tape in teaching these days I often wish I had gone down the 'Kennel Maid' rout. Today my friend messaged me. This is why I now have 'a little something on my mind'! She has come across a 16wk old Sausage dog, that is in need of a new home and she thought of me! Eeeek! I really miss my Sausage Dogs. I am also rather impulsive where animals are concerned! Once I have an animal though I have never given one up. I think I already know the answer. . . but I can't help having the 'Little Something' on my mind. My partner would despair! The fourth chicken was nearly 'the straw that broke the camels back'! A puppy would 'rock our world'! This 'Little Something' is not yet house trained and is causing chaos in it's current home and has spent a lot of time in a stable. Both of my boys are 'doggy' too. They both love dogs and could bark before they could talk. Henry is soppy with dogs but Euan could put Lacey through her obedience paces when he was about three and half. He is very good with dogs and they listen to him. I have a space next to me on the sofa. . . I just need to work out how I can sneak a puppy in unnoticed. I managed to conceal a chicken for a week! A puppy may be more of a challenge. My life has been rather calm of late and lacking it's usual chaos. . . I am already having visions of knitting cute little coats! It might have to go along the lines of 'Darling. . . you know the new car you wanted. . . well. . .I feel it would only be fair if. . . '
