Old Dog, Old Tricks!

Yesterday Rachel's " dirty bum" comment on Going Gently totally left me speechless.
It was a bit like having Freddie Mercury singing happy birthday at a ten year old's birthday bash.
ie. No one can possibly follow it with any degree of success! 
She not only sneaked in the bum comment but added the somewhat upsetting visual of swinging breasts and even  the possibility of a skid mark on the duvet. 
Only today can I bring myself to talk about it ! 

And so I am not going to compete.
I shall, however, share a photo of George who, quietly and with some planning managed to eat, not only his dinner but all of William's, this afternoon. 
With help he heaved himself up in the armchair as the sun streamed through the cottage window
And slept a sleep of a contented and over stuffed Scottie.

  1. With all your descriptions of ablutions in the garden and dogs in the bedroom and shite in the kitchen I am surprised at your shock. It was a fairly normal start for me, being expelled from the bedroom I mean, but not always for the reason given yesterday. The dog looks different at that angle.

  3. When you say that George "heaved himself up" in the armchair, do you mean he chundered/barfed/vomited?

  8. It held no surprises for me, in fact, I sort of imagined that this is a daily event in Norfolk (if I can bear to think about it at all).

  10. Don't worry George, we have all been there. Bet he wishes he could unzip his fur like we humans unbutton our pants.

  13. Considering what you have seen and wiped in your career and domestic life, John, it takes a Rachel to stun even you, you of all people, into temporary silence.

    I am not surprised she has purchased paper knickers for forthcoming trip. Hope she's allowed for some spares. Let's wait for the sequel ...

    Maybe we can all club together, if only for Peter's benefit, and buy her a bidet, some toilet paper, even baby wipes.

    I will also purchase her a Debrett's Etiquette and a subscription to "The Lady". And the Titanic may fly.

    1. The baby wipes is not a bad idea. You know what will happen if there is a bidet ... she will be trying to bite the little fountain of water shooting up in the air ... :)

  16. Adore when Watson and thehamish were groomed. Their fur felt like silk with fluffy pantaloons.
    George looks so handsome in that photo. Even with a huge tummy. What a sweet baboo !

    cheers, parsnip

  17. I want to grow up to be an old dog in the sun.
    Some comments are best left to hang there on their own.

  18. Swinging breasts? Skid marks? Dirty bum comments? With all your own down-to-earth and scatalogical comments, not to mention your daily job, I can't believe you're in any way shocked. You're just pretending to be shocked for entertainment purposes.

  19. How cute. George is my favourite.
    Not entering into dirty bum and swinging titties conversation as bum hopefully clean and titties alas not prone to swinging.

  20. Has he just had a haircut? He's probably compensating.

  21. All creatures find great pleasure in eating and then sleeping. Only humans feel guilty about it.

  22. George reminds me of the times when I feel so bloated. I never can decipher if the gas is from what I ate or indigestion or air? He looks content. We all love Rachel! She's a breath of fresh air and lovely!
