Another of those "WHY do we have dogs?" moments.

Let the dogs out first thing as normal, fine while everyone getting on with jobs. Then the kids come in for breakfast, the pup and terrier come in and the 3 adult labs are still outside. Just as the kids head off for school we realise the dogs have vanished! Now this isn't a new thing with these labs-but they tend to just disappear into our fields after bunnies and then come bounding back when called. However, the usual escape route into the fields has been blocked off to keep pups out of the calf shed....

So after wandering around the village, calling and whistling, 3 rather large labradors appear and one promptly throws up. Our council have finally got to grips with recycling and we can now use the brown bins for all compostable waste including all food waste. And today is brown bin day....

After a jab each of magic vomiting juice they produce between them what looks to be 3 entire salmon and various other food debris, including a few bones-which was the reason for the enforced vomiting. So now myself, the dogs, their room, the cats and small dogs-who has been licking the floor while the many piles of regurgitated food fell-all STINK OF FISH!! Bleurghhhhhhhhhhh! How do I get the smell from my hands-they didn't even touch the stuff directly!!

WHY WHY WHY DO WE HAVE DOGS?!?!?!        

And I couldn't find a tipped up bin anywhere so now someone in the village is going to hate me as they have had to clear the mess up themselves!!

     reading hat has made laugh ... thank you.


Oz has recently developed a semi bad habit, which I think he has learnt during the school holidays from watching the toddlers and small children on the playground behind our house.

If he thinks we haven't played with him enough on the park, when we put him back on the lead he spread eagles himself on the ground, and refuses to budge, just like a temperamental child.

NO, we don't have any children. The dogs are allergic to them.

I'm sorry freckle.  That sounds nasty.

Maybe this will cheer you up.

Sorry but I also laughed, knowing exactly how you feel having been in a similar situation with dogs in the past.

So I assume your not having fish for dinner tonight then

Well-discovered the bin owner at least-fortunately a good friend of ours who had returned from his fishing trip and put his fish in the smoker! That explains why there were so many tails in the puke.   And his dogs are equally as bad!!

One of our pups, Molly, is much cleaner with her antics.
We have a large water bowl for the dogs in the kitchen.
The latest trick?
Put both front paws in the water and paddle like mad  
fleurie

A couple of ours do that, too - marvellous!
