Animal Abduction!

Last night was one of those nights again.  Around midnight, we were disturbed by our dog stirring at the sound of a cat wailing.  This went on for a bit and we were just dozing off again when the neighbour’s dog started barking.  They must keep this dog in a kennel as it was clearly outside and it went on and on and on and on

I can only assume the owner lives alone and works nights and is therefore not at home when this is going on as there is never any attempt to shut the dog up  

It is difficult to know which house the dog belongs to because of the layout of our little estate and I was on the point of getting up and walking round the block to try to establish which garden it was coming from, when another neighbour yelled for the dog to shut up.  This seemed to have some effect as the dog went quiet

At the same time as all this was going on, as if it wasn’t noisy enough, we could hear the sound of some engineering work being carried out on the nearby railway.  Well, I assume that is what it was.  Could have been an alien spaceship landing

In fact, maybe that IS what it was

And that’s why the dog was barking

And stopped so suddenly!

OMG!  Maybe I SHOULD find out where the dog lived and tell the owners that their pooch has, in fact, been

Missing Smelly

The dog has gone on holiday today. He is spending the week with his nana while we go away

He seems to like it, we have no problem leaving him and he never phones us while we are away, pleading to come home

It is very strange here at home without him though

It’s amazing how much a part of your life a dog is

We had nobody to give our crusts to

There was no warm ball of fur for me to rest my feet on while watching the TV tonight

And we had to bark at the ice cream van as it drove past tonight because he wasn’t here to do it

I miss my smelly dog!!!!
