I went for longer walkies today so I was satisfied. After walkies we went in the garden to pick some Rosemary. Suddenly mummy started to replant the tulip bulbs from a pot to the flower bed so I had to wait. Boring, boring...Hmmm? What is in the pot? It is moving. Let’s poke it. Mummy was surprised when she saw me poking the soil in the pot with my nose. She stopped me and explained it was an earth worm. Strange creature isn’t it?
Anyway, I should explain about my vet visit on Saturday, shouldn’t I?
The nice lady vet examined my leg. She stretched and folded my leg very gently and carefully. Her touch was so nice and comfortable that I could hardly open my eyes. She said my leg was OK now but still I should walk on the lead another 7 days and then I can gradually start running in the park. Yeah!!!! I can not wait!!
The lady vet was very gentle and kind but this time she didn't give me any tiny round sweeties because I didn’t need them anymore.
After visiting the vet , I met a puppy. Was it a sheltie? I saw Katy the sheltie puppy in the park a while ago. She was too lively and I didn’t like her attitude very much. Mummy and daddy said this one was also a puppy but she was smaller than Katy, but still I was a bit shy. Also there were many doggies there which looked like me and I didn’t know what to do. They were all gentle and friendly but I am not used to playing with many doggies, you see. I thought I might say hello to the little puppy but it was time for us to leave because mummy had to cook something for the party next day.
Will I meet the puppy and others again, daddy? I might try a harder bit next time.
On Sunday, we went to nanny Joan’s birthday party. There were about 40 people and mummy and daddy took me in the hall. I knew many of nanny Joan’s family and friends so I said hello to everyone. It was very exciting to see all those people at one time!! I didn’t need mummy and daddy’s protection there. I just wandered around and greeted everyone. Mummy and daddy said they didn’t understand why I was so happy to see many people, though I was shy and hiding when I met many shelties the day before.
When the party ended some people came to me to say good-bye. Mummy said she was very happy to see that because she could see many people really loved me.
I am not very good with doggies and I don’t know why. For me human beings are something different. I just love them. Most of the time I become friends with other doggies after a while. I think I am quite a shy doggie and need more time than average. But hey, If you meet stranger who is too friendly from start wouldn’t you feel a bit worried or even scared?
Also, I cannot be friends with some doggies. But I think this is the same thing for humans too. You have some unfavourite types of people don’t you, mummy and daddy?
Life is complicated sometimes.
