    I’ve inherited a fourth dog. I say ‘inherited’ but in truth I’m only looking after him for a few weeks while his daddy is away. His name is Jacob (the puppy, not my friend) and he’s a King Charles Spaniel. He’s on...

    Toby is a yapper. He’ll yap at noises. He’ll yap at other dogs. He’ll yap at a gate if he thinks there might have been a dog behind it once in its history. Today he yapped at a box that was sitting by the side of the road. And the b...

    I shave my dogs’ backsides. Like sheep, they can get messy if I don’t. But the other day Cody came up to me with poo squashed all over his bum. ‘How the hell did that happen?’ I asked in exasperation. He didn’t take too kindly to my ton...

    Holly came back from the doggy spa with a pink ribbon in her hair. She hated it. Said she wouldn’t go for walkies unless I took it off. She was worried one of her friends would see her like that and then everyone would know. Apparently it’s quite...
  • Milk

    This morning I sent Cody to the deli to get milk. He grumbled about it as usual, but he was the one who’d finished off the carton so it was only fair he replaced it. I told him to get low fat. I’ve seen on TV you can lose weight without even tryi...

    ++5++96666666666666. That’s really funny. I told Toby I was going to write his life story and he said he wanted to do it himself. And that’s what he typed. Toby came from the Home for Lost Dogs, like Holly, so he has an air of mystery about him.
  • Schnauzer Boy
    on Jun 16, 2010 in dogs Schnauzer vet
    I started calling Cody ‘puppy frog’ when he was just a few weeks old. It seemed a fitting nickname considering the way he used to jump around. He had energy to burn. These days he doesn’t jump so much. On account of the fact that he’s fat. No...

    Holly is my little girl. When Cody was about 18 months old he decided he wanted a baby sister to keep him company while I was at work. So I took him along to the Home for Lost Dogs so he could pick one for himself. When we got there Cody decided he l...
