Six thirty in the morning, we heard Woof howling and knocking at the gate. It has only been two hours since we slept. Mummy kept checking on him till a far-away wake up call of ‘cock-a-doodle-doo’ startled her into realisation that she hasn’t slept at all!!
After a breakfast of milk and biscuits,which he wolfed down heartily, Daddy let Woof out. He seemed to have a mission to complete, he was so intent on getting out.
We drifted off to sleep again, with an eye open for him.
11 AM. Tired, forlorn & hungry,Woof limped in. Another hearty meal of rice and chicken disappeared within minutes. Mummy settled him into his make-shift bed from last night.
Quarter of an hour later, he was in his preferred bed - a hole he had dug in a corner of our garden. At peace, content, sleeping peacefully.
It just broke our heart!
An hour of discussions. A decision for a life-time.
AND TAA -DAAAA…
Meet our new brother!!
Scrubbed, bathed, powdered, blow-dried, teeth brushed, ears cleaned…Woof is shining like new.
5 hours of deep NREM sleep later, Mummy had to shake him awake.
9 PM. One large bowl of Pedigree kibble and water wolfed down like a starving puppy!
Post dinner walk and post-walk excitement later, he is snoring into oblivion.
(Buddy, Don’t you think he is kinda funny?)
(Yeah, gotta figure him out soon!)
( YES! That’s my Baby-harness! Dog, He IS a pupif he fits into that!)
We don’t know how we will manage, how difficult it will be to get him house-trained, how well he will adjust when he has to stay in the varandah alone tomorrow when Mummy and Daddy goes off to work.
Yes, Mummy says it is prudent to let him be on the other side of the door when we are alone at home, at least for a few days. He can barely walk, his paw hurts horribly and he needs to rest. There will be vet visits, tests, x-rays. Till we know nothing is broken, we must stick to playing with just each other and not him.
It really feels good. It feels right to see him in our home rather than at the shelter.
And he no longer seems to have any un-finished mission. He seems content and at peace. **TOUCHWOOD**
Yawwnn…(sorry, very sleepy)
See you tomorrow,
BUDDY & GINGER
