Up with the lark at 6.30am. Briefcase packed, showered, hair done, make-up perfect, dressed in most efficient-looking smart casual outfit and sitting in car outside on road by 9am waiting for my passengers to turn up to go to the National Ladies' Luncheon Clubs' conference in Macclesfield...........

.................At 9.15am I suddenly realised that the conference is on 17th March and today is NOT the 17th!!

(Sigh!)
ROFL!! I've done similar, I now make sure I recheck the dates of every event. Twice or thrice!

We don't give Violet much people food either - wouldn't you know we would get a dog with food allergies (wheat, beef) . I do give her some gluten free pasta noodles once in awhile as she loves them, but she mostly gets hypoallergenic dog food. She had banana once or twice and loved it, but it gave her horrific gas.

We taught Violet not to beg when she was a puppy. She would go to sleep at our feet or go to her bed. Then Joie came along with tons of bad habits including begging and barking. She doesn't beg all the time and we choose to ignore it so she ends up laying down and going to sleep.

Better than fining out it WAS on the 7th!

Another reason I so love Beagle. She waits a respectable distance from our food, then will Hoover up any spills when we're finished. All my dogs have been second-hand, and adults. They would stick their faces in our plates if we let them. Sit and Stay commands did not work. DH's 2 original white mutts were the worst. He did no training of them at all. The cockers were just plain dumb (or smart, depends on perspective).

I need to get on some mending of DH's shirt pockets.

I had an American Cocker named Brewster. He was the most loyal, smart, perfectly trained (got him at 7 years old) furry friend I could have. He grew up with three young boys so was not scared of kids. I would open the front door on nice days and he would sit on the front step when he knew it was time for the mailman. The mailman would pull up in front of our house but start on the opposite side of the street and end with us. Brewster would meet him at the edge of our property and "escort" the guy to the door. Brewster would always get a dog bone for his efforts. When we had to tell the mailman Brewster had to be put down due to bone cancer, the guy wept.

What am I doing? Not much. TB is trying to sleep off his cold and I am trying to get the energy to go grocery shopping.
