'The Time' had not come after all

No, this isn't Monty the Mont!

This is Jack. (Jack who opens doors).

Jack is a Calm Happy Dog at home.

Jack is not a Calm Happy Dog when out on Walks.

He Pulls and Pulls. He Goes Crazy when he sees Other Dogs.

The Dog Trainer said Jack was a Lost Cause.

But Person says in time Jack is not a Lost Cause at all.

Jack will become a Calm Happy Dog out on Walks, just like he is at home.

Because he Wants to. Not because he is Trained to.

And this is Toby.

Toby is scared of little Abi who has just started walking.

Here am I playing tug with Little Pickle and Milly.

Pickle runs very fast. He leaps right over furniture. He hides where I can't reach him.

You Can't Catch Me.


Person says Go Out and Do That Somewhere Else.

Anyway, Poor Marmite went to the Vet on Monday.

THE TIME had Come. Or so Persons thought.

But in the waiting room Marmite said Hello with a Staffie and a Golden Retriever.

In the Vet's room Marmite Wagged her Tail for the Vet.

So THE TIME had Not Come after all.

The Vet gave Marmite an injection. The Vet put pills down her throat.

THE TIME will Come another day.

Anyway, I think Little Pickle is a Lost Cause.

He is Somewhere Else for a while.

So THE TIME has Come for me to have a Rest.

This is Jack. Jack has Very Big Ears for a Little Dog.

Jack was Peeing on the carpet. Jack was Peeing in the kitchen at night. Jack was Peeing in his bed. Jack was Peeing up the cupboards.

Jack Peed a message on Persons' work bag.

Person put her work bag in the washing machine.

Person said she didn't want me, or Little Pickle, or Monty the Mont to start using her work bag as a message board.

Now Person has just heard! Jack hasn't Peed Indoors once since she saw him!

Little Pickle has STRAGGLY Spaniel Ears.

Marmite has FLOPPY Sleepy Labrador Ears. And so does Monty the Mont.

My Ears are FLOPPY.

But I am a Sight Hound. I am also a HEARING Hound.


Milly has WIDE AWAKE Ears. Milly is ALERT.

Person went to see Cocoa last week. Cocoa has FLOPPY Labrador Ears like Marmite and Monty the Mont.

Cocoa's Labrador Ears are not SLEEPY Ears. Cocoa's Ears are WORRIED Ears.

Cocoa is Anxious.

Cocoa is Scared of Shiny Floors.

Now Cocoa is learning to be more CONFIDENT.

Then Person went to see Odie.

Odie has FLOPPY Labrador Ears also. Odie's Ears are BOUNCY Ears.

Odie's Ears FLOP Up FLOP Down FLOP Up FLOP Down as Odie JUMPS about.

Odie is now going to learn to BE CALM.

Odie is now learning to stop Jumping About.

Our Marmite is a Chocolate Labrador. Marmite is Lazy.

Poor Marmite has a Heart Condition.

And here is Hamish, with Brora.

Hamish is 6 and a half months old. Little Pickle is 6 and a half months old.

Hamish is a Border Collie.

Whenever a Person gets up or moves, Hamish runs about frantically searching the walls and ceiling for SHADOWS to CHASE.

Before Christmas Hamish had nearly stopped CHASING SHADOWS altogether.

Then... over Christmas.... lots of Persons came to his house.

It was Very Exciting for Hamish. It was Very Stressful for Hamish.

Then someone played the Chasing Reflections game with him.

So now Hamish is CHASING SHADOWS again.

(He should stop again soon because his Persons know what to do now).

Anyway, I am a MEERKAT.
