No Ring Needed

Posted in Bonny,Companionship,Derby,Dogs,Hector's Diary,Scotti Dog Blog,Scottish Terriers by scottishdogs on August 14, 2010



When she (Bonny) frist came to live with me and my mum, I did not really like her.  Maybe it was the way she gave me “the grin of death” on arrival, or the fact that “playing with a toy” (mine) meant destroying it.  So initially, I put-up-and-shut-up and hoped she would go home, you know, back to her home (this was MINE).

Bonny has been with me a year now and I realised recently, I have grown to love her.  Here is why:

  • Safety:  Bonny usually distracts potentially dangerous (bigger) dogs  we cncounter by barking at them – thus drawing its predatory attention from me.
  • Trouble:  Bonny always gets blamed for destructive events (emptying bin over carpet, eating post etc) thus letting me get away with it on rare occasion it me what-dun-it.
  • Fun:  Bonny plays the best game of Ambush/Bitey Face EVER and I loves it.
  • Discipline:  Bonny now on chain of shame too (he he he)
  • Love:  She always checks I am ok – several times a day.
  • Company:  She cries when mum goes out and joins with good howling session – why we even in harmony now!

So that is it.  That is why it has suddenly crept up on me, that nowadays I really feel settled with my girl.  No ring is required for this kinda love. She’s mine, and I am her’s.

    Hector you two are so funny we never heard of the chain of shame reference until today. We love it!!! The Diva would benefit from an hour or two on the chain of shame….except she is also an escape artist there isn’t a chain of shame that can hold a cat.
