First trip out

11.2.17 Yesterday we took Lola out into the big wide world (well, the market town of Petersfield) for the first time.  We went as a family and our initial plan was for one of us to stand outside each shop with her.  This plan faltered at the first hurdle, the sports shop.   The inevitable time … Continue reading First trip out

On being disrespected

9.2.17 Lola seems to have turned a corner.  She is calmer and less bitey.  I think it is due to exhaustion given her exciting new regime of walks twice a day on the school run.  Her walks are erratic affairs.  She sniffs around then starts walking forwards a bit then runs as fast as she/we … Continue reading On being disrespected

The return of the sock

30.1.17  The sock which Lola ate on Saturday night (36 hours ago) made its appearance at 6am this morning.  Lola was lying calmly after her morning routine of dressing gown attacking, when she was suddenly sick.  I was a bit horrified to see that the sock had re-emerged.  I was more horrified to see that … Continue reading The return of the sock
