Friday 12th May 2017 – Some dogs have all the fun

Wilma is thoroughly enjoying building her travel website. She has just been adding another hotel in North Yorkshire that she has got very excited about. They even have a special menu for dogs to be able to choose what they would like to eat. As soon as she got the information she was straight onto the computer sending a message to Cinders to see if they could fix a lunch date so the two of them could pay it a visit. Cinders has family up here on the human side, as well of course as her own mother and brother, so comes up fairly regularly. Now the girls are planning an outing and having seen the menu I have to say I’m more than a little envious. That’s one of the things she is most excited about in her trip to Switzerland in a few weeks. She’s going to be staying in four hotels she hasn’t stayed in before and will have her clipboard ready in her paws to make notes.

Wilma can bear a real similarity to the Duracell Bunny. If you aren’t familiar with the advert then the message basically is that if you use their batteries then they keep going long after others stop. There’s a toy rabbit playing the drum who just keeps going… and going… and going! Well that’s just like Wilma. Despite it being a hot day on Wednesday Wilma walked down to the village, had a play date with Bernie and wore him out so kept running off after all the new dogs who arrived to see if they wanted to play chase. Then she went for a walk with Shadow and still had energy left to spare at the end of it all. I get worn out just thinking about what she’s doing. Her breeder nicknamed her ‘Wild Wilma’ when she was a young puppy and it’s not hard to see why!
