Little Jemima has had a bath and boy did she need it and she was a wee darling too, sitting ever so bravely as we washed her.
However, as you can tell by the photographs it wasn’t her most favourite activity while staying here with us (compared to breakfast, lunch an dinner that is which is her absolutely favourite activity) but she does now look like a lovely white fluffy cloud and she smells pretty good too.
It also meant we could share lots of extra cuddles and fuss while we towel dried her and you know how exhausting having a bath is – so we got to listen to her snore her little head off as she snoozed and as you can see she had no problems getting comfortable…
In a time where the world has seemingly lost its marbles and all self control, we must remember the great British tradition of keeping a stiff up lip when coming up against trifles of madness – that and remembering to queue properly as only we Brits can. 😂🙃😅
I would like to introduce our new foster dog Jemima the westie. Jamima is four years old and a little poppet. She is happy to come up for a sniff and a quick kiss but is still learning about kind hands and two legs. Her bottom is constantly a wagging telling us that this little girl is not only ready to be loved but to love in return.
Jamima doesn’t have the best haircut at the moment (resembling someone who has stuck their paw in a socket) but it is superficial and will grow back and a good olde bath and brush will help, which we will be on once she has settled a little more.
In the house Jamima is doing great, she is a quick learner where toilet training is concerned and follows our dogs out side to toilet (bar one or two accidents from when she first arrived) and this training will need carried on by her adopters.
Once Jamima has settled in her forever home I think training her will be relatively easy as she is very food focused. We have not started her leader training as yet but with time, love and patience I have no doubt Jamima with grow into a fantastic little dog.
Jamima is in foster in Cramlington Northumberland. Please click on the link below to see her profile where there is a link her application form.
Like all good packs there is always an alpha and as you have all probably guessed Willie thinks he’s it (or at least trys to pretend it’s him.) It is of course our wee Maggie though and this is something we have always encouraged.
Why you may ask, well because she is the only one suitable in this disfunctional family. I mean let’s face it Willie being the apha would be disastrous because he’s a tool, Ginny is a few sandwiches short of a picnic, Wallace can sleep through an earth quake and well Tilly is so new she is still getting to grips with how to live in a house.
There is of course Pigcat too but he’s too preoccupied stalking his territory from a visiting tomcat and planning his world domination, starting with demoting Willie to lunacy by jumping out at him at every possible opportunity.
So, you see Maggie is the only dog who is any where near being normal enough to lead the pack and generally she does a great job. She corrects Willie when he goes one step too far, sorts out the bickering when they toys come out, makes sure nobody steals the old bean Wallaces treats as he sucks them to death and is always first to greet any visiting foster dogs and help them on their journey to find their forever homes.
That being said she does have her Achilles heel – put a wildlife program on the television and boom she grows horns or worse pull the biscuit barrel out and she leads a revolution to start world domination (as you can see) and her minions are more than happy to follow her lead…
