Tuesday 10th October 2017 – Normal is the new Strange

I know that normal means there are four of us dogs who live here, but having had so much time with one or other of us in kennels for the last couple of weeks, it all seems very odd. To be honest, I’m happier to be an only dog or no more than one of two. Being one of four is very wearing on the nerves of an old dog. Shadow has been a right pain for reasons
