Wednesday 7th December 2011 – Alfie’s day off – Aristotle here

I’m a bit down in the dumps. I seem to have an infection that is making me pee all the time. I don’t mean to. I’d like to be improving on my toilet training. It’s not like there isn’t an incentive. I don’t get to go in the rooms with carpets at the moment. It’s not so bad, most of downstairs has hard floors and I can get to the pee mat in time most of the time, but not always. I’m on antibiotics, but I’m finding the tablets quite difficult to swallow. I spat the pieces out several times yesterday before finding that if I chew them a bit, they may not taste very nice but they are a lot easier to swallow. I quite like the ham they are wrapped in to help them go down. I had my boosters yesterday, including the one they squib up the nose. I grumbled less than Alfie, but then the vet did something much more unpleasant to him involving emptying his over full anal glands. I don’t even want to begin to describe how bad that smelt!

I’m settling into the routine of life round here. To be honest I think I’m being just a tiny bit spoilt but I’m not going to complain. I get so many cuddles and kisses it’s brilliant. I went out in my rucksack the other day to have a look at the world. It didn’t look too bad. I’m almost looking forward to when I can walk out on my own. I’m not sure what I will think of the lead and not being able to run off, but I quite like the little harness I’ve got. It was Alfie’s when he was little.

I’m hoping this works. I really wanted you to see the picture of Mum that my Mistress

took a couple of days ago. Mum had taken to sitting on the dining chairs. She looks so funny. I can’t even climb up that high, but I’m hoping to learn one day.

  1. You see those Santa figurines behind your mummy in the window? That’s what you need to be aiming for – just grab them and run! Best game in the world 🙂

    Hope you’re feeling better soon little buddy so you can get potty trained 🙂
