    Cato: Oh Aunties! It was awful. usually when Mum stops her Work Stuff at lunchtime, we have a nice sniffy walk. I thought we were going to have TWO walks today, cos Dad took us for breakfast at the Sausage Place. So I was getting all waggy excited and thinking about that lamp post on the corner that needs A LOT of sniffing. But then lunchtime comes, and Mum GRABS me! And she carries me through to the grooming table! And she does footsie torture! No walk! No sniffing! There was only brushing and skissers and that horrid buzzy thing. And those mean clippers that do snappy clacky stuff and pinch my toes. I didn’t like it. But there is a good side cos its Tara’s turn tomorrow!!!

    Tara: We took Mum and Dad out for breakfast! To our paw place that does proper food for us. look! This is our scrambled eggses. Mum kept our bowls up on the table for AGES while she took pics cos she said our eggses were too hot hot hot. It was awful having to wait. Mum squished them about in the bowl to make the cool down faster cos she said my whining was embarrassing. Haha! I was HUNGRY!!! we got a WHOLE egg each! Yum!!! we want to go there again today too! Cato says that eggses is better than boring fish and rice or the bonescuits they do. Or even cheese. But I like the Pupcakes best!

    Cato: You know how Mum and Dad sometimes drag us into sausage places, and we get bored under the table while they stuff their faces with lovely food and drink stuff, and then after agesandagesandages we get to go outside and have some sausage wot they saved for us? Don't get me wrong, I like the sausages! And the steak. And the 100percentbeefyburgers and the bits of chicken. But now we have OUR OWN sausage place! And it is only 10mins walk from home! So we can take Mum for a walk in her lunchbreaky thing, and visit OUR sausage place and have Special Paw Chicken and Cheese and Fish and Biscuits and Pupcakes and sausages and stuff. Mum showed me the menu thing, and it says Gluten Free on stuff, and Low Fat on other stuff, and I want to try EVERYTHING!!!! Look! http://waggietail.co.uk/ and https://www.facebook.com/waggietailcleethorpes/ We went there and had HUGE pieces of cheese and SweetPotato BoneyBiscuits and they were delish! Only Mum said we had to share a single cube of cheese (Booo! Hisssss! says Tara) and only one BoneyBiscuit (S'not Fair!!!! says Tara), but I made sure that Mum put the rest of our cheese and biscuits into our Doggy Bag, and now they are in the fridge for when we are veryveryvery good. Like I am ALL the time, and Tara is never. So I get them and she doesn't! ( says Tara) Mum says she will take pics next time to show you, and we might even get more pics on Facebook, like we do when we visit AuntieLesleyDogSitter who walks us in the mud.

    Well.....he didn't come to me. Here's why: I was the first to respond to the need (and everyone agrees my home would have been best) but I had to be honest and tell them we are leaving for Oregon in about a month so told them if he wasn't snapped up immediately, let me know and I would come and get him. Here's why he needed a foster home ASAP: He ended up in a shelter over a year ago. After the mandatory time he was put on the euthanasia list. On the last day, a kind woman pulled him but was not able to foster him full time. She took him to her vet......and there he stayed for a YEAR! Somehow my Shih Tzu rescue pulled him and brought him to their office. Their most urgent plea was that he not go into boarding while waiting for a foster home. Why would my home have been best? He was 8, nearly blind, skin and ear allergies and not housebroken. I'm a Shih Tzu Mom, have belonged to a blind Boxer for 11 years and fostered 3 blind or nearly blind small dogs (2 Tzus). But all is well - another foster Mama answered the need and went to pick him up immediately.......and he might even have a ready adopter I would have loved to see what I could do though........

    Mummy is growing me two piggies. The hair is still a bit short in the middle and by the end of the day it’s falling out of my bands. I wanted to share this photo with you all. I’m love owning this arm of the sofa, it’s near the window and I can sit and watch the world go by! Oh and excuse my dirty legs. Daddy took me for a muddy walk and now I need a bath.

    Hi, friends! Haven't been active in recent months in the forum and I've missed the forum. I'm sure so much has happened with everyone's lives. I didn't notice until recently that I haven't been receiving updates from the forum in my email so I'd have to check that out later and catch up on everyone's posts. Anyway, hope our Chatter family is doing well - two-legged and four-legged ones alike. As for us, we have had some deaths (like four) in my and my husband's family recently and are now getting out of the fog, so to speak, getting used to the new normal. The most that affected us was the loss of my MIL since we lived together. Monkey has been our angel through this, giving us something to focus on, to break the ice and the awkwardness. He cheers us up with is normalness. It would have been harder without him here. We are very grateful for his presence in our lives. There was something interesting that happened during my MIL's passing that I wanted to share and maybe you guys could share your thoughts on this as well. As per our customs, before we bury our dead, we hold a wake for a few days which allows other relatives and friends to pay their respects. Well, my MIL's wake was held in our house (it can also be sometimes held in a funeral chapel) as per her wishes. I've read stories about dogs being aware of their human's passing and wondered if there were really some truth to it. Monkey wasnt particularly close to her when she was alive so I have no idea how he would react. I usually stay up from 1am till morning, Monkey was always leashed to either my husband or I because there were people all over the place and he's not good with strangers. One of those nights, I let him off leash and observed him as he walked up to the coffin and sniffed around. He didn't mind the flower arrangements and went sniffing around the coffin. It's diffrent from his usual curiousity because normally, something unfamiliar, he's sort of cautious, slinking closer until he deternines it's harmless... then he'll most likely pee on it (to show dominance? ha ha) He didn't do any of that. I let him sniff all he wanted, going around the underside of the coffin. Standing on his hind legs, he could only sniff the bottom half though. After that , even if I let him off leash again, he never showed the same interest as he did that one time. he never approached it again. It could just be reading too much into this but I'd like to think that he's said his goodbyes and that he's aware of her not being with us anymore. Anyway, I apologize if this creeps you out. Honestly, I'm not too good with these things. It's just that, I guess it's different if it's family. Hai~

    Tara: It was AWFUL Aunties. I didn't want to show you my piccses, but Mum said I had to be brave and show you, cos it will prove how brave I am, and heroic and stuff. And it will show you all how extra specially beautiful I am when my piggies grow again. So this is me with Bed Head on Monday morning, before we went to see nice Mrs Groomer And this is me after my Spa Day, with my piggies All Gone. Mum and I woz very sad. Dad said he didn't know who the strange paw was who had moved into our Den, and Cato just sniffed me and larffed. This is my bobble wot my piggies used to cover. Mum and Dad said it had definitely grown in the last two weeks, so snipping it off was the bestest thing to do. And this is me when I got back from the horrible stinky vets where they made me go to sleep and then banged me on the head. The bandage on my arm had dinosaurs on it! Mum says that my scar is Spectactulaaar! and a very impressive War Wound. It is a much better War Wound than Cato has got. And she says I should wear it with pride, cos I am a Brave Brave Paw. So I am showing you my pics so that you can see how brave I am too!

    Yes! Definitly! Mum and Dad should do "shift lap work". Take turns. You tell them I said so. I know they have to have good margins but they always make such big incisions ? Tara......*I* think you look very sleek and mature and summery and sporty - I like it! Hugs sweetie - milk it for all you can until you get bored with it and are ready to go mountain climbing and beating up Cato.

    Cato: hello Aunties! How are you? I am very well thank you! It was all wet and soggy today, so Mum and Dad said ‘no walk!’ but they said they would go out Hunting and bring some prey back. i wanted to help, cos i am an excellent Hunter, but i think they were sensible to leave Tara behind, cos she always mucks everything up, and doesn’t have proper Hunting Instincts, like me. So then I had to stay with her! Cos she always gets silly if she is left alone. But even without my help, Mum and Dad did some excellent Hunting! They brought back some lovely 100%-beef-burger and some juicy-beef-rib-off-the-bone. Me and Tara had it for tea. It was lush! and now i am trying to have a nice snooze on Mum’s lap while my tummy is full, only Mum keeps moving, and saying ‘i can’t stand this! You are never having that again!’ And ‘this is unbearable! How is is possible for 2 small paws to produce Such horrendous flatulence? Never again!’ it is very disruptive. I will never get my tea digestified if she keeps on fidgeting like this! it is very important to follow the right way of doing things. Hunt. Eat. Sleep. Mums should respect the tradition, shouldn’t they?

    Thank you AuntieM! At leas YOU understand... I am already beating Cato up. We went for a walk at Mum's lunchtime cos Mum said that I was too frisky for an invalid, and there would be trouble if we didn't bleed off some energy. I don't want to do any more bleeding, but I did want the walk, and I got so excited that I had to bounce on Cato! And then he got all wimpy and yelpy. AND THEN when we got home Mum let HIM sit on her lap cos he was only walking on 3 legs! The WIMP! There woz me, all wounded and scarred and War Wounded, and Cato just yelps pathetically and gets laptime!!! S'not fair, is it? Mum: Yes, well, the bouncing was violent enough, Young Lady, that Cato ran and hid from you, on three legs! And Dad and I were worried enough that we rang for an emergency Vet appointment, so no point pretending that you are innocent! Fortunately, Cato is deploying all 4 legs again, and the appt has been cancelled, but I am still a bit concerned about his lower back area, and will be watching him closely. Humph!

    While I'm disappointed he didn't come to you, I'm very happy to hear that he does have a place and possible furever home. Sounds as if this little one has been through so much already...
