What yer looking at? Never seen a baby before? You’d better not have eyes on my pal here. I’ll spit in yer eye and he’ll have yer ‘and off.
He’s my guardian see? We’re mates and look out for each other, which is more than I can say for all those stuffing their faces at the buffet table. Free nosh, that’s all they’re here for. Bit of singing, mumble a few phrases and a couple of photos (how I hated being passed round like a parcel), preening of the new parents and grandparents. Sheesh.
If I hear one more person say ‘he’s got your eyes’, or ‘your nose’ or a ‘cheeky smile’, I’ll fill my nappy, smile sweetly and provide my own aromatherapy. That’ll teach ’em to dunk me with water!
Won’t go down well that the toast will be with MILK!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
