George and Betty

While I was sitting at the computer yesterday afternoon the phone rang.
'Hello.'
'I have your dog in my kitchen.'
'oh dear.'

So the old door that Husband wedged in between the wall and the bit of fence isn't enough to keep George in. I went to collect him. The lady who had him said she had three labradors. Which is very strange as I couldn't see or hear them and I've never been aware of three dogs living just behind and across the road from us. I wonder if they are imaginary dogs. Probably a lot less trouble than real ones.

Younger Son did a repair job on the fence repair job Husband had done previously. Today I caught George trying to eat his way through it again. I am still waiting for his operation to take effect hormone-wise. (I am really hoping the disappearance of testosterone will remove the urge for a young alpha male to leave home and start his own pack.)

On the way home in the rain this afternoon Betty's windscreen wipers stopped working again. Now neither Younger Son nor I have a car with working wipers. We blame it on the weather. Overuse.

Omigosh! How are you going to cope with no windshield wipers in that weather?

Definitely the weather!

Poor George! He doesn't give in , does he? Yes, it must be the weather's fault!

Maddy said...

Rain! George certainly is a trier.
Cheers

After reading about Badger, I hope you give George a special hug even if he is being ornery.

Wales 1, Georgia 2

I seem to remember being told by vet that it takes about 6 months for the snip to work. George is making the most of it!

Ash said...

Oh dear :-)

It takes a while for the hormones to settle and then George won't be so prone to wander...however, if someone is making him welcome when he does go avisiting, that may be hard to stop.

Best of luck...

PS: Oh dear, sorry about Betty's eyelash.

Ever seen the hilarious "Galaxy Quest"? Their motto was "Never give up, never surrender". I think George invented it!

Poor Betty. You should tuck her up warm and dry until summer!

When Raq - that's Badger's brother - left puppyhood behind, the vet refused to neuter him saying he would become fat and lethargic. I often thought a little lethagy would have been welcome. Also the vet said Badger did not need fixing for a couple of months... didn't stop her becoming pregnant as a result of brotherly love.
That is another story...

Yikes no windscren wipers? oh for a dry spell! As for George, he is a character!

Hahaha ! George is a champion in escaping he deserves a gold medal if that would be counted at the Olympic games ! I hope he doesn't have illegal kids in the neighborhood and has to pay for them after a DNA test !
