Troublesome Treacle Greetings my Furry Friends! We carry poo bags with us everywhere and Mistress says she is always pulling them out of her pockets in inappropriate places! How time flies when you’re having fun! With lighter evenings Mistress and I have been on long walks and I’m loving the new smells along the hedgerows. I can’t understand why Mistress tells me off for having the odd whiff of other dogs’ poo and for weeing on them! She says I’ll catch something nasty and moans that the dogs’ owners should have picked it up. We carry poo bags with us everywhere and Mistress says she is always pulling them out of her pockets in inappropriate places like in a restaurant, when she’s looking for loose change for a tip or in a meeting with a client. She came back quite annoyed from London the other day. Tired from the journey she said she felt like a little old lady because a kind woman had offered her a seat on the train. Poor Mistress. She has not had a good month. Tantrums from teenagers and a very nasty cold when she nearly lost her voice. It’s Mother’s Day This Sunday and I am going to totally spoil her with extra face licks and hugs and perhaps wash a few dishes in the dishwasher with my tongue! I can’t get enough of my two Nerf guns ! Mistress and Little Mistress love them too and we all end up running after the balls that are shot out at speed and see who can get to them first. It is usually me because I am very experienced ball catcher and if there was a prize for this I would win. It is my favourite game at the moment. Last month it was playing ping pong with Mistress on the footstool with a larger ball. I use my nose to push it to her and we get quite a speed up. Mistress even plays this with me when she is relaxing with a glass of wine and watching TV at the same time. She has always been a multitasker! As you’ve seen, there is a gorgeous Border Collie on the cover called Paddy. He ran away and it took ages for him to be found. He must have got lonely and frightened. You can read all about his journey and how he was eventually found on page 7.
Treacle after getting out of the Shower! I do love a Border Collie. We are clever dogs and sometimes a handful to our owners, I know I am but as Mistress says ‘I’m worth it!’ Mistress found me at The Border Collie Trust GB who rescue and re home hundreds of Collies and Collie Crosses each year. So if you want a dog like me you know who to call! But I love all animals and dogs and Mistress has put hundreds of pets inside this magazine who are looking for lovely new homes like I have. Run out of space again with all my chit chat so see you next month and have FUN!
