Phoenix is the best dog. Or, he usually is. Not this week.
This week he’s found something disgusting to eat on the farm next door and it’s made him sick every night. You’d think he’d learn after the first few times but no. Whatever it is, it’s irresistible.
If I were to write a piece entitled ‘Things you should know before you get a dog’, number one would be ‘dogs are gross’.
Other than the occasional grossness (he’s also partial to a good roll in hedgehog poo), he’s an awesome critter. Great company and he never gives me a hard time on those busy days when I am too flat out to take him for a decent walk. I am grateful for that. The days seem so short at the moment.
Looking at recent photos from my phone, it’s not a bad life really.
