Hot dogs and clever cats

OUR little doggie really is one of the most cute, smart and funny animals I have ever come across.


She knows when there is food left over from dinner and will sit and look dejected and abused until she gets some.

Lately we have taken to making her work for these tasty tit-bits and morsels by getting her to do all her tricks.

But she gets all excited and does them all at once and then some with lots of little new added features.

Once you go towards the scraps she is behind you like a shot and once you say the magic word ‘sit’ she follows through with a manically dizzy foray of twirls, roll overs, sitting, lying down, jumps, giving five and walking. I really will have to capture it on video because it is just too funny for words.

She also loves going out in Nanny’s car.

I'm lovin it!!!

As soon as Nanny gets her boots on, doggie will not leave her side at all. She howls the place down if Nanny leaves the flat without her and can hear the word car being uttered anywhere in the flat and is in like a shot.

So not only will we miss the car, the doggie will be devastated.


So I started this post about how clever the doggie is but check out this story on Yahoo about a cat which called 911 in the States after its owner collasped.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Police aren't sure how else to explain it. But when an officer walked into an apartment Thursday night to answer a 911 call, an orange-and-tan striped cat was lying by a telephone on the living room floor. The cat's owner, Gary Rosheisen, was on the ground near his bed having fallen out of his wheelchair.

All I have to do is train the doggie to dial my mobile if the Young Wan is misbehaving…

Morning time
My babies in my bed…

Aw you're killing me. I'm a sucker for cute doggie pics and accompanying stories.
When we're having dinner, Disco Fred sits there and does his best Dickensian orphan impression. This involves looking sad, shivering and blinking as if his eyes are suffering from blindness caused by hunger.
It never fails though and he's a bit pudgy after Christmas. I've been unfairly calling him Tubby McFatso.

Only when he's not in earshot, mind.
