Introducing….

Muffin!

Muffin came home with us from the Bath Cats and Dogs Rescue Centre yesterday.  Please support these amazing people, if you get chance – they are doing marvellous stuff for pets in need of a home.

She is about 7 years old, but no-one knows for sure as she was taken in as a stray.  Despite answering to some basic commands really well, Muffin isn’t housetrained, so we have some work to do.  Also, she is frightened by other dogs and can be aggressive towards them, so has to wear a muzzle and stay on the lead at all times outside the house.  She is never aggressive towards people though, and exceeded all the tolerance tests at the centre.

It looks like we all have a lot to learn, but it is already rewarding as Muffin is extremely friendly and affectionate and rolls onto her back for a fuss every time we go near.

I can, through experiment, already confirm that dog poo sticks to bare human feet better than to carpet, and that people who get up at 5am should turn on lights and open their eyes before walking through the dog’s sleeping area.  No, really.

    I knew that blanket would come in handy one day! I expect you’ve got your walkies schedule planned. 🙂
