For my American readers, Happy Independence Day, to an American friend Happy Birthday, and to Other Brother, also a happy (79th) birthday.
We have a house guest, and her name is Kela.
She is almost 12 years old and totally gorgeous. We collected her stuff in the car this morning, then Hubby walked her round. She came inside, sniffed and checked out the lounge (OK, bed), the bedroom (OK second bed) the kitchen (OK doggy cupboard), the hall (OK water and food bowl, hmph……. latter empty) then walked out again. I took her for a short walk round the block where she sniffed for England, but no wee. Apparently she is not ‘regular’ so unlike Maggie, we can’t expect a specific number of poos every day.
No wees on our walk, but she went out into the garden, had a good sniff and squatted her bot.
While we were repairing the end fence, which is unclear as to if it’s ours or the lady at the bottom (I’d rather have fairies), she was content to lie by the front door and had a snooze.
She’s also had a sleep in the lounge (and snores!) and has now gone back outside by the door. We have the net curtain up so it can remain open and she has no problems walking through it so is happy to take herself outside for a wee.
Our neighbour is in hospital for at least a week so I have sent her a text to say all is well and Kela seems OK. We don’t know how long she will be staying with us, but we are flexible for as long as needs be, though I think her owner will want her back asap when she feels up to it, and we will then help out with walks etc.
Here she is…………
