|Mummy Kate and I|
In the afternoon, we went out into the garden (which I have been staring at through the door for days, I couldn't wait to get out there). I ran and ran and ran, in between trying to eat moss, grass and twigs and being chased around by mummy Kate as she tried to get them out of my mouth. It was great fun. I didn't quite understand the decking at first, though. I fell off it and ran into it a few times, but then I got the hang of getting on and off it. Mummy said I'll be a great agility dog.
Then, once Mummy Kate had got Lucy out of her wheelchair and into bed, it was time for food. Mummy has been giving me chicken as a treat as I'm not eating enough - life's too exciting to stand and eat! Mummy Kate had buried it under all of the biscuits, but I soon dug it out (I made a bit of a mess with the biscuits in the process though. Oops. Sorry mum). I did eat some biscuits, but the meanie cat Patch walked past and so I had to try and get him to play. I barked and I jumped and I ran around; nothing. I can't understand why he won't play. He's so boring. I know he’s old and I know he’s tired but come on, how much does it take just to give a good chase?

I’m really getting the hang of the commands mummy is teaching me – when I want to. Mummy says I’m very clever but also stubborn. (Me? Stubborn?). I can sit, come and leave, I know I have to give Lucy my toys so she can throw them for me as she can’t reach them on the floor, and I know that one ring on the house phone means Lucy is awake when she naps during the day. I don’t like the fact that her door gets shut during the day when she sleeps, and I can barge the door down and get to her. I don’t know why she has to shut the door, or why I can’t sleep in bed when she sleeps (something about safety), but I know barging the door will wake her up and then I get a cuddle, and when that phone rings I race mummy Kate (or the carer) to see who can get to Lucy’s door first.
