Nellybert has been entrusted with the task of looking after (for one week only) the most precious dog in Ballymena.
Gracie’s owners are off to
I expect Zoë went over the dos and don’ts for Gracie’s stay?
Not really. I know not to feed her from the table. What’s the rule on beds?
No more than two consecutive nights.
She gets fed at . No treats unless she does a trick. Get her to play dead or something like that. Oh and she’s been doing this choking thing recently. She usually sorts it herself but if she can’t dislodge it just put your finger down her throat. If that doesn’t work grab her by the back legs and turn her upside down whilst patting her firmly on the back.
Righty oh. Any issues with comfy chairs?
Oh no. Comfy chairs are fine.
Unless you’re already eating there yourself. She’s not allowed to be on the sofa if you’re eating a sandwich. She knows that.
If she should, God forbid, make a run towards the road you mustn’t run after her. I know it would be your first instinct but she’ll think it’s a game and run harder. What you must do is run in the opposite direction and shout “Ball!” She should run after you then.
Okey dokey.And one other thing. She hates joggers. If you’re out for a walk be careful with joggers for she’ll go after them. And watch out for Willie Drennan. She hates him.
