Thursday 5th July 2012 – Who, me?

Oh mock if you want to. Do I look that old? I had an email inviting me to take part in trials of a joint care product for when dogs get ‘older’. Now I know they didn’t spell out the fact that I’m going a little grey, but I’ll have you know I can still give Aristotle a run for his money. Ok so Aristotle has elbow dysplasia, but who’s counting? Anyway by the time I’d exchanged a couple of emails with the lovely lady at Pedigree, I totally forgave her and decided she seems a very all right sort of person and I’ve signed up. I’m going to be trying a joint care product for them and it seems I get sent some goodies too. It can’t be bad. Aristotle is jealous, so that’s an added bonus.

I should have signed us all up. Between my age, Ari’s elbow and Megan’s broken toe we aren’t doing so well. Megan is now sporting a very fetching pink boot to cover her bandage in the hope that she will stop taking the bandage off every time my Mistress leaves the room. She is also in the dog house for having broken one of Andy’s toys yesterday. She claims she was simply trying to play with it and didn’t have the dexterity that was required to be gentle, but I think chewing it may be nearer the mark.

My Mistress has been reading a book which has about 500 pages. She reached page 374 so she is well and truly into the body of the book and had reached a vital section, only to be confronted by page 323. Now even I know that the number after 374 is not 323. It did prove that she had been paying attention as she didn’t read very far down page 323 before she realised she was experiencing a ‘Groundhog Day’ moment. The book is being returned and a whole new one with all the right pages is going to replace it.
