JusJoJan 10th – The present that gave itself away

Almost three years my lovely family decided it was time for me to have a dog again. My first dog had died unexpectedly young, only seven years old. I was heartbroken and vowed to not go through that again. That said, both kiddos, in cahoots with Mr D, searched for a suitable pup and presented me with photos and an appointment to visit the litter.

Being the kind and caring mum that I am, I went along to show willing. So sure were they of persuading me into it, they brought deposit with them and paid for the pup.

Fast-forward to today. Pup has decided who she belongs to and it isn’t me. It’s Mr D first and last, with cost centres 1 and 2 (Aka my kids) a close second… I only feature on Pup’s radar when everyone else is out!

One-liner Wednesday – UFO spotted on pup walkies!

Pup: Sniff… sniff,sniff…sniffety-snif…yip! Bark!

Me: Whatcha found, Pup?

Pup: Barkety-bark bark!

Me: Oooo! What the heck is that? Not an otter, or a grey squirrel. We don’t have red squirrels here. Hmmm. What we have here, Pup, is an Unidentified Furry Object!

We walk on, all the while reducing the list of possibilities to a small Mustelid of some sort. Unable to narrow it down any further, I tell pup my findings.

Me: Pup, it’s a wee weasely-stoatie thingy!

In my defence, it moved too quickly for me to be certain! I’m not sure I can tell a weasel from a stoat, even if they stand still!

Happy Wednesday everyone xx
