Flat Stanley had his first outing with us today.(we have been going out and forgetting him and when we have remembered Emily hasn't wanted to take him as she has been scared that he would get torn or lost)I know he could hardly contain himself today, we made him a special cardboard pouch so he would be safe and off we went to B&Q!!!!! You will have to click on the picture to see Stan as the wind was so strong Emily had him close to her and of course Dog(scruffy to his friends) had to be in the picture.
He came to Morrison's with us as well but all the excitement had quite worn him out so he decided to stay in his pouch.
I had planned to go to a local Animal World today but Milly was tired,due to the fact she was hyper last night and couldn't get to sleep so came down to finish listening to her story CD whilst I watched Masterchef,(brilliant)so she didn't want to go anywhere.....
So after a bit of this and a bit of that, mainly drawing, we had a bath and washed hairs and got ready to go for the shopping which we couldn't get out of as Alan needs some cement to be able to start a repair job on a fence post first thing in the morning. We had a great time, Milly was in good spirits and miraculously so was I!!!!
Good chat whilst we had lunch about blood diseases and anti coagulants used by Mosquito's when they bite amongst other things.Fun while trailing the aisles in Morrison's and back home for ten minute rest before picking up Milly's best friend for tea.They spent nearly an hour writing down the imaginary puppies they have and deciding on their names, then watched Bridge to Terabithia while eating tea.I had not realised it was a really sad film and walked in to check on them to find Milly in tears and her friend holding her hand and nearly in tears, so I sat and held both of them and nearly cried myself it was so moving.
Emily is now watching Ice road Truckers on five with Al. A friend had mentioned it to her at the food coop and he is soooo into it, he obviously did a good job selling it to her as she was keen to watch.
We stopped off at a neighbours house on our way home from Emily's friends house, they have a puppy who is a little boisterous and I saw her recently with a harness on and she seemed to have so much more control so I wanted to ask her where she had bought it as I had not seen one.Although Beauty is very good on the lead when she does lunge it would be good to have more control.We have used a gentle leader head collar but when she lunged it was still allowing her to get forward whereas this you can hold at her shoulders.She invited us in( Emily and friend in heaven, 9 cats and a very lively chocolate retriever) and showed it to us and then said I could borrow it as she wasn't able to take the dog out at present as she was in heat and she was so strong that even with the harness on they were scared she would pull her over so her husband took her out and didn't need the harness.How kind.Al and I tried to fit it tonight but couldn't see quite how it went, it looked so easy when she showed me on her dog!!!Try again tomorrow, having found the suppliers website and got instructions..
