Our Mistress saw how sad I was about not going to Fun Day, well more to the point it was our Master. Anyway, they took me. I had to sit in the car for all the running around time, but I got to watch and I took part in two games that were more gentle. I even won a prize in the ball and spoon race. I met my half-brother, Bernie for the first time and it was lovely. Of course I’d rather have been playing ball with the others, but I was so happy to be there. Shadow ran and ran and is now regretting it rather a lot. Wilma had a wonderful time as you can imagine. Then after the main part had finished Wilma’s half brother, Salvo and her niece, Izzy came home and spent some time with Alfie so he didn’t feel left out either. Salvo and Izzy have the same sort of
temperament as Wilma does and Alfie had a wonderful time running round in the back garden with them. He was really gentle with Izzy and it was lovely. When they all went he was quite upset and just wanted to be outside in case they came back.
Today is going to be a quiet day for all of us. We all overdid it a bit yesterday, except Wilma who could run all day. Shadow was happy yesterday as her daughters Della and Dixie were there and they are growing into fine young ladies. She said it made her very proud. She won a prize on one of the games too so was especially happy. She thought she’d won her heat in one of the other races but was disqualified for cheating. She had tried to hide a biscuit that she was supposed to have eaten and the judge (our Mistress) caught her.
Anyway, have a lovely day.
