What a manic week I've had! Bicycle stolen I've borrowed one from a lovely friend, but oh how the thigh muscles are screaming! I had to raise the saddle (even for my little legs!) But my gorgeous furry customers always make me forget the woes. Gus and Tom who I've helped look after since tiny tots are coming on beautifully and are an absolute joy :) I love my job!
I was full of the joys of Autumn this morning. I've got a busy schedule with my lovely furry customers this week. I had a great day cycling from A-B singing as I peddled - then as I left my furry toy-boy Tom ready to head home and dry off I discovered some b****** had nicked my bike ..... grrrrr! So this week I'll be focusing on getting a new bike asap and navigating london transport in the mean time. Ho-hum! these things are sent to try us, I was convinced my bike was a dud anyway as I had too many OAP's overtaking me on steep hills! ;)
Wiggling along on her dainty feet
Jasmine can turn a few heads in the street.
At every gate she stops for a nose
drawing huge smiles wherever she goes.
Hours of fun in the Heath’s long grass
she hurtles herself at crows as they pass.
Loving and gentle she filled me with cheer
I kissed her goodbye shedding more than one tear.
Off to a new life where her family are calling
where beaches are golden and fields are sprawling.
She’ll have the choice to pick and choose
whether hurtling for crows or the kangaroos.
A beautiful face always eager to please
our goodbyes were shared with her favourite *plastic cheese!
Have a wonderful life Jasmine.
*I’ll miss you and I’ll never look at another cheese-slice without thinking of you!
THE DOG TRAINING SECRET provides some great information. Their latest advice reminds us how often we misinterpret doggy behavior and infer our human behavior on them. In the dog world it is called anthropomorphizing or giving them human traits that they really don’t have.
This article gives sound advice http://www.thedogtrainingsecret.com/blog/give-kiss-understanding-dog-language/ including:
Keep your kids out of the face of other dogs!
Don’t ever let them hug or kiss a dog they don’t know, and be cautious about allowing them to get in the habit of doing it to your family pet.
Your dog may not mind; but their best friend’s dog may! So preventing the bad habit from forming is sometimes key!
