    Duncan do you have a different bark for who you see in the street?
    I ask as my dogs favourite place is laying on the back of the head part of the sofa and looking out onto the footpath outside.
    I can tell from the barks and noises if it's a person with a bike, a person with an unknown dog, a person with a dog who is a friend, a cat, or a bird.

    Yes I have a number of different barks, mostly I get excited and that sounds different from my angry bark (bikes, scooters, bin lorries) and that is different again from my 'lets play' bark but the one that dad hates is the scared bark where I try to intimidate a dog that I'm actually scared of (small dog syndrome), dad says that if I was just to keep quiet the other dog would probably just ignore me

    Good morning all and one. I am returned from a short break oop norf whereupon I visited with my big brother and my non-cousin SiL for a few days.

    Our Ellie has different barks for different thing as well, including one if a toy rolls under the sideboard, and another one if one of her food pellets rolls under her food bowl.
    I married my cousin. I had to...
    I don't have a sister.

    All my screwdrivers are cordless.

    Fruity, I suppose that you have an alibi for this then?

    All of me is fairly well savvy.

    It's been a busy week here at Fruitcake Folly as usual. I've been building a new water feature but have taken the day off as MFTE is spending the day with us today.

    Nothing much happening around here, I am getting bored waiting for Dad to get back up to speed and I seem to spend a long time sitting at the front gate waiting for him to take me out

    Just as well Duncan, these temps are ridiculous, too many doggies collapsing and dying uneccessarily


    We've been having playdates round my house with water play, scent work, treat toys, doggy ice lollies and canine bubbles instead of walking client dogs. It's been brilliant fun and much nicer!

    Unbelievable, another case yesterday, have you seen the poor greyhound in London fighting for his life now?

    Dad seems to be more affected by the heat than me, he was ill with it yesterday and I got fewer walks again
    Rain today though so we'll see how many times I can take him out

    Sky is only for football and even though I love watching it at ground level during a live match, Dad refuses to pay to have it on his TV.
    Freeview is king in this house, Dad can get everything that he doesn't watch using that so why pay

    Yep, now that sons and ex have all gone it's just me, so it's going to be Freeview and possibly NowTV added on for the Entertainment pack. But seriously need to think if it's worth it as I don't get a lot of time to watch TV and forget when things are on that I DO want to watch And then just need to sort BB/phone out too!
