Snag List: day 6

I put a bit of a damper on proceedings this morning as I needed a shower and Hubby couldn’t paint anything in damp conditions.
So we had a field trip instead which turned out to be an interesting interlude.

We made sure we had a dog lead, haltie, poo bags and treats, then set off. When we’d parked up, we opened the boot to discover no dog collar.
It is against the law to take your dog out in public without a collar and disc thereon showing your name, address and phone number. You can also be fined for not having the necessary items to clear up after your dog.
We therefore went into overdrive and luckily had a training lead on the back of the passenger seat, so Hubby took her into one shop to get a new collar and I went to the shoe repairers a little further up to get a disc done.
The collar Hubby had purchased was actually a training collar and lead combined, so not really what we were after, so it was up to another shop for a standard collar for her. Of course she was familiar with the shop, layout, staff and where the treat tin was.  One of the regular girls helped us put the collar and disc on as well as feed Maya treats, so she was very well behaved.

We couldn’t get what we had hoped and tried another outlet, again where Maya is known and she knows where the treats are, but without success.
Back to the car, we bought a snack and coffee then went on to the industrial estate, but no luck there either, so it was time for home.

Lunch was sausages, bean and mash which we had at 2pm, and this afternoon Hubby has done the painting he wanted to do and also cleaned off the rest of the tiles.
The snag list is reducing nicely, though some of the things can’t be done until the flooring is laid because there will be a slight height difference as it will go underneath the cupboard and plinth. We hope to take the existing floor tiles up the weekend before the fitter comes, and will put down lining paper to provide a nice clean surface for him.

We now have a lead and collar complete with the necessary disc in the car just on case.
Some women collect shoes or handbags………… Maya collects leads and collars!


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.

    Good for Maya, Ruby has four leads, 5 collars and two discs! We once had to buy a collar and lead when out on finding we had forgotten both. So you are not alone. 💜

    It’s always good to have a spare. Pippa used to roll around and work her collar off deliberately 🙄

    Lol about the lead and collar! Very cute! I’m glad the snag list is lessening now!

    At least Maya won’t be leading you into temptation…I hope! 🙂
