The dog thread is better than the cat thread, because it features dogs.

    We met our first bad dog (owner) this morning.

    • Progress from field 1 to field 2
    • 2 mins later, dog appears.
    • Dog bounds over.
    • Ok. No owner?
    • Hmm.
    • Keep Biscuit sat; she behaves impeccably.
    • Other dog is a bit of a batshit dick.
    • Still no owner.
    • Hmmmmm.
    • Scatter turkey on the ground, and begin foraging for his collar for a phone no.
    • Dog likes turkey. Does not like collar.
    • Have a couple more gos.
    • Biscuit remains impeccable, but is beginning to want to go nuts too.
    • After about 5 mins, two more dogs appear! Then a woman.
    • By this time, I’ve picked Biscuit up, bc she’s going nuts on the floor.
    • Woman finally sidles over.
    • “Oh, is your dog on heat or sth, then?”
    • “No! She’s too young for that!”
    It is five minutes later that I realise she meant “is your dog in heat, bc why else would you be carrying her above my wonderful dogs,” and not (as I’d thought) “is your dog’s bacons* the reason my dogs are completely out of fucking control.”

    We met her again on the way back. (Obvs, we met Marty five mins before we met her.) No recall whatsoever, completely batshit pack of three.

    Interesting experience, bc I kinda realised that she had no idea what I was trying to do with biscuit, or what I might find suboptimal about her hounds.

    *something happened here with autocorrect and vagina.

    Ps as Artichoke points out, I may have started to become as judgy about other people’s dogging as her favourite fb groups are about other people’s parenting :thumbs:

    Not really, the money seems to going off Parvovirus because, well, he's not dead, but it's still a nasty, nasty bug. He's going to be mothered at the kennels for a while...

    Poor little fella :( Good news if it's not parvo though.

    At least he's being well cared for and is hanging in there :) Hope he's recovered and on the way to you very soon.

    Right, good doggy news...

    He's back to jumping about like an idiot and being interested in the world, he's going to stay at the kennels for the next week so they can feed him up and keep an eye on him, but he should be coming home to us next Friday...

    Well, if it's not going to be Daffodil, as helpfully suggested by my children, it's not going to be 'happy'...

    It's either Bramble, Otto, Thorn or Stig.

    mrs quoad - your bin lid needs cleaning.

    My dogs are similarly facinated by our toilet habits, they tend to adopt a look of appalled facination as if to say - and when are you going to learn to take a shit in the garden like all civilised creatures, even the fucking Goat has grasped it, you disgusting bald monkey?
