I'm a little bit annoyed, mummy and daddy bathed me. I don't smell like I should. I do not like the bath. It is slippery and the noise of the shower scares me. The shampooing is nice as I get rubbed all over.
After my shower I rubbed myself on everything in hope that I could get my old smell back.
Mummy took me out last night to play with Harvey. Harvey and I had a good time wrestling and chasing each other. We scared mummy and Chris though. We went through a hole in the hedge and when they went through the hedge we nipped back and ran home. Mummy and Chris thought that they had lost us.
I think we will be kept on a tighter lead until we reach open fields from now on.
I now have a start date for school. 24th September. This is going to be so exciting.
Mummy and daddy have too many visitors. Today Wendy came. She looked important. She had a clipboard and asked lots of questions about me. From what I have learned from listening to her and mummy and daddy, she was inspecting my home, making sure it was good enough for me to live in. She gave mummy a gold star and said she was happy I was here. Wendy is going to be my teacher when I start school. School sounds like fun, I get to go and be with lots of other dogs and we learn new stuff to get us more treats, we learn how to control humans and get to do some agility.
Mummy took me on a really long walk this morning without giving me breakfast. We went in a new building that I had not been in before. I was taken into a little room where a lady poked me with a sharp stick. I felt a little sleepy and after a while I woke up and was not feeling too good and there was no sign of mummy. When I felt a bit better they gave me a bowl of rice and chicken. Then I heard mummy and daddys voices. They had come to rescue me. I was very glad to be home. I was also very tired. I also am not sure why my fur is gone on my tummy. Maybe they tried to make me into a human. Idiots, every dog knows we are a unique species. I need a nap now.
Are they trying to kill me? I have been on so many walks these last few days. I have been up hills and over fields, I have been into a little village and left tied to a lampost while Sandi went in the shop. Very undignified I have to say, doesn't she know all the boy dogs wee there. My walks have been fun. I wish I had more freedom though, she keeps me close to her side. maybe she is scared of something in the trees or bushes. I know there is plenty to sniff in them. I have not smelt anything scary though. If I was free to run I could go ahead and warn her of danger. I am good at that. Some older lady knocked on the door and she did not even notice until I warned her. The lady turned out to be nice, but I did not know that.
We also had some strange people in the house, they were called Mike and Amanda. I did not like them much. They smelled of cats. I need to get my doggy smell on them more before I'll let them play with me. I was glad when they went home. New people are a bit scary.
Talking of scary, Sandi scared me today. All I saw coming up the stairs was a gigantic dalmation. I growled and woofed to let Tim know what was coming. Then the dalmation spoke to me in human. Oops not a dalmation just Sandi in a silly furry thing. Why humans insist on wearing such stupid things I don't know. Although I suppose they get quite cold having so little fur.
I've decided I like them so much that I am going to let them be my new mummy and daddy. They are super. A few tweaks and they will be perfect.
I had a real adventure today. That nice young couple who had visited me last week came to see me again, they took me into a little office and my nurse left me all alone. I cried for her but she did not come back. The people seemed to try and make friends with me. I was not too sure. There were also some really naughty jack russels in reception. I wanted to go out and have a good bark at them to put them in their place for being so yappy. The people put a new collar and lead on me. Oh goody, walkies.
They took me out to the carpark, last time I was in the carpark I got left here. I did not want to go in the car incase where I got taken was worse than here. They are quite smart for humans and they bundled me in a blanket and lifted me in. No amount of digging my heels down was going to help me here. Once in the car (what a silly mode of transport - I much prefer to feel the wind on my face and the grass under my paws) I settled the lady who called herself mummy was giving me lots of cuddles. I soon settled down.
We drove for quite a long way and when we stopped I was told welcome to your new home Millie. Hmmm Millie? my name is Minnie. Although I have always thought Minnie is a bit of a stupid name. Millie is much better. I found out I had my own bed and drinking and eating dish.(no more sharing YAY) I also had lots of funny rubber things being offered to me. I did not want to chew though. I might get in trouble. I was quite exhausted after all this excitement so I went to sleep. They left a light on for me. Tsk..do they think I am still a baby.
