06th October – 23rd October
Been a while since l last penned anything to you all, well not really, a little over two weeks and just under three, so about average, but a lot is sort of happening, and it isn’t if that makes for any sense? Well the update is they still haven’t managed to bath me, so that’s definitely a good thing. They keep trying to brush me, and l start doing my Halloween shuffle which is basically l just start to shake all over. Then you hear them both say things like “Dudes! Pack it in we are only trying to brush you you have become a shaggy monster, we are not beating you!”
The thing is l don’t like being brushed and so l will continue to do the Halloween shuffle until they stop, which eventually they do, because l am shaking, trembling and shuddering. Mummy usually manages to get and l quote ‘ a small puppy out of me’, so once l hear that, l wiggle and squirm and then l am off. If they don’t let go, l make a little yelp, and thinking they have hurt me, they let go and l run off. Daddy says it’s a learned behaviour that works, but still lets me go!! Bol, bol!!
So it’s Scrappy 2 and Them 0 in my world!
Wish l had more to discuss, but l don’t, as there isn’t much going on. My elbob cleared up, after Mummy started bathing it, and applying the stareoyd cream, that’s probably not the right way to spell it and Dad says it most assuredly isn’t, but l just give him my famous Scrappy stare and he backs off! I even had to walk around for a few days with the silly inflatable raft on my head and a silly colourful sock on my back leg, to stop me scratching! I looked really silly! So if l don’t want to be bathed and brushed l will not let them do either, that is what they get for making me look stupid for nearly a week!
Perhaps my readers can help me out with something? For weeks l have been trying to figure out my new interview form, but trying to pin down Dad for long enough has been seriously hard work, he is just always busy, or like now, really tired and is trying to stay awake. But also he has been so tied up with other things that my interview form has taken a back seat.
Below is my interview form for dogs, but l wish to extend my diversity so l can interview a range of petz, not just dogs and katz [which has it’s own sheet], but l need it to be more universal, so what questions do you think l can put in there to make it more generic to all animal types? That would be a real help.
