Crime and punishment

My punishment was harsh.


First, at the vet’s house I was stung on my shoulders, in spite of waggling my whole self and aiming a big kiss at her nose.

Then I was locked in a cell, with only paper towels on the floor.

I felt very sick and was very sick 😦

Next, Mum held me while the vet squirted some thick black gunge down my throat.

At home later, Dad tried to hold me while Mum pushed the squirty tube in my mouth like the vet did, but I knew what was coming and got the better of them. (It did look tasty when they put it in my dish though, so I lapped it all up.)

Now, it’s way past my tea time, but no one has fed me 😦


My crime was small.


Mum had made Dad a big chocolate cake.

It was right at the back of the work surface, but I’ve learned how to reach things with my outstretched paw and drag them into eating-range and I thought I would just try a little bit.

It was so tasty.

I couldn’t help myself.

I didn’t leave any for Dad 😳



  1. Hi Amos, it’s cousin Jake. Sorry I’ve not been in touch for a while – been busy with this agility training stuff. Anyway, hope you are feeling better soon, funny how on those days that you feel a bit poorly and all you want is your dinner and a lie down the dinner never comes! Stange world isn’t it. By the way, thanks for posting about our Aunty Rachel yesterday, she looked after me when I was very small too.

  4. Just thought I’d let you know that I didn’t get really poorly from eating the cake 🙂

    It’s good to hear from you, Jake 😀 I hope Mum takes me to do agility soon – I’ve watched bigger dogs having fun and I’d like to have a go too!

    Sarah, lots of your friends have been reading my blog 🙂 Thank you x
