What about me?

Eleven days to go until Bonny’s babies are due and counting…

Whilst sympathy is in Bonny’s court at the moment I would just like to remind people that I am here too. For goodness sake, Bonny just has to waddle across the room and they give her a round of applause! Don’t my humans know that without my actions Bonny wouldn’t be in the family way? And I have responsibilities too. Here is my list:

  • Ignore the fact that Bonny is fat and pretend I still like her.
  • Try not to steal the food she leaves in her bowl (for later) because the babies are making her feel full.
  • Understand that she is bad-tempered when I can’t resist temptation and eat her food any way.
  • Be patient on walks as we have to stop and wait for Bonny to catch up.
  • Give her a good clean in the places she can’t reach any more.
  • Look the other way when Bonny can’t heave herself up the step from the garden to the kitchen (she has fitted a ramp now).
  • Be patient. There are two more weeks of this drama to go and all family entertainment (running after balls, chewing shoes, keeping mum company when she works in the garden and so on) are left to me as all Bonny does is sleep.

There. It is off my chest now, talking of which, have you seen the size of Bonny’s bloopers? Chapel hat pegs, all eight of them!

    Hector, you’re in for a long period of being second…….or even eighth…depending on the pups. We’re glad you have John there….you’ll need another male. Great list, hope you can keep to it!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

    Tsk….how MALE! All about YOU, huh? Well, you shoulda thought of this when you were busy stuffin the muffin, huh? You need to go out and catch some fresh critter and bring it home for Bonny to make up. Making fun of your mate when she waddles across the floor carrying your litter is just not good form. It is good of you to help with the washing of those hard to reach places though….we scotties have a hard time reaching our good parts on a good day.

    We’re all anxiously waiting to see all the little scotties.

    sniffies all around,

    Sorry, Hector. As a former mama dog myself (long, sad story – the cad), I can tells you that IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU, you crazy boy dog. YOU did this to dear Bonny and now you just gotta do what you gotta do. Treat her real nice, tell her she’s the prettiest thing ever, and bring her an extra doggie biscuit or two in the middle of the night if she wants it. Okay…all straight now? Good!

    Wiggles & Wags,
