Some people and dogs (Wallace) are thriving in this time of self isolation. I mean c’mon he can practice sleeping all day and have his people about all the time to serve him and deal with his many demands.
However, I think he has maybe took the laziness to a whole new level, maybe even a step too far…
C’mon son, he can’t be arsed to stand and eat but sitting down to eat is just a tad too far, lazy boy …
So the last time Mr 3WD&P was bored he decided it would be a great idea to teach Willie how to speak, no this was relatively easy as Willie is a gobby westie anyway and has no trouble in sharing his opinion or what he is doing with others anyway.
Actually most people and dogs are quite taken a back on first meeting him because he is quite vocal (everything he does is accompanied by a noise.) This of course has been amplified by 100 since the husbands fantastic idea of teaching him (more like encouraging) to speak.
Thus we are all now constantly patronised and shouted at on a daily basis by his lordship. Not putting dinner out quick enough blah blah blah, not stroking his belly blah blah blah, sitting in what he considers his seat blah blah blah, he even back answers you when you tell him off.
So imagine my concern when Mr 3WD&P announced “I was bored so taught Willie a new command.” I haven’t quite made my mind up yet as to whether it’s truly horrifying or cute …
‘Smile’ is the command by the way incase you are purplexed as to what Willie is doing!
I’d like to say Jamima is just as excited about her harness and going for a walk as she is that her Reserved status is now not only secure but has ticked all the home check boxes…
However, Jamima is still at war between the stubborn Westietude of wanting to do what she wants to do, rather than being led by a harness and lead.
That being said you cannot be cross with her because she is so funny and full of character as she puts the brakes on plonks her bottom down and trys to ignore you – sadly her belly can’t ignore the treats!
You can see the westietude on her too if you look closely enough – that’s her tongue she’s sticking out at me!
Fingers, toes and paws crossed for her up coming meet and greet people’s – three’s a charm right?
I am devastated for this little girl who has now become available again for adoption. Jemima is a lovely little girl who has a constantly wagging tail. She loves being outside in the garden, playing, eating and sleeping (usually right next to you.)
In the morning she is the first one there to dance about at your feet and shower you for kisses as she is just so happy to see you. She gives you a right old woof too if you stroke one of the other dogs more than her!
However, food it her secret weapon. Jamima loves her scran and it not only will be the way to her heart but her training too. Jamima is a fast learner where toilet training is concerned and can go all night without accidents and during the day she is happy to plod on out side for her toilets so we are not worried there at all!
Leader training is still very new. Jamima wears a harness and has not yet decided if she wants to be friends with it yet. Out on walks Jemima is still very overwhelmed with the new smells and sights and being a westie can be a bit stubborn when she has decided she doesn’t want to go a certain way or just doesn’t want to walk anymore (Westietude in its finest) but as her confidence grows she will learn to love her adventures outside of the garden just as much as in the garden.
Jamima is in foster in Cramlington Northumberland for more information or to fill out an application form click on the link below.
We’ve been naughty, we didn’t get one but two foster dogs on our last run, however I only advertised one.
Firstly, because Toffee (was MT Nessa) was so shut down and scared compared to our other foster dog that we felt she was just not ready.
We also noticed very quickly that when she did begin to engage she would only engage with one person. This in turn made for the start of a beautiful relationship and love Blossomed.
We have had a good few foster dogs over the years both with Many Tears and other rescues and all of them are beautiful and special but every once (or twice) in a while there is one that just looks right into your soul and you just know that their heart belongs to you.
Toffee is part of my soul and will never again know hurt or heart ache – Happy Gotcha Day Toffee and thank you so much Many Tears for this little girl because without you she would not be here with us today xxx
