The snow came down, fell thick and white As far as I could see… She opened up the garden door So it could fall on me.

The Small Dog is under the weather…

I’ve been feeling under the weather, It is winter and bones can get cold… Especially when you reach my age And your two-legs keeps saying “You’re old.” * Now, I know that in ‘dog years’ I’m eldest, Though the theory has been disproved That I’ll age seven years in your twelvemonth So the argument leavesContinue reading “The Small Dog is under the weather…”

The Small Dog in Distress

Now, let us be very clear about this. I was tortured. I am not blaming the lovely young two-legs in the van… she was kind, compassionate, professional and exactly what you want in those horrendous circumstances. But my two-legs? The one issuing the orders? She knows what I think about “bath”, “ears” and “toes”… FourContinue reading “The Small Dog in Distress”

The Small Dog has the Last Word…

“Anu, old boy, how did you get here?” Frankly, as  a mention in their latest book, it isn’t good enough. Not only have they changed my name and gender, but I am pretty sure it is the only mention of me in the last of the ‘Don and Wen’ books. I mean, the first three,Continue reading “The Small Dog has the Last Word…”

Dear Santa, remember that ball that I’ve had? For several years now…it was getting quite bad… And all that was left was some chewed rubber stuff, A vague hint of curve and some once-yellow fluff… * I’ve taken good care to be so gentle with it Not tugged it or torn, so the ball wouldContinue reading “Ani’s Advent 2020!

Ani’s Advent 2020! – Pondering

Dear Santa, I’m a little dog who doesn’t do religion. I’d rather chase a tennis ball or terrorise a pigeon Than argue over who is wrong or maybe who is right… It seems a silly way to me to get into a fight. I know the Christmas story, ’cause she told me long ago, AboutContinue reading “Ani’s Advent 2020! – Pondering”
