I suppose they are sort of... biscuity-looking. Ish.

The thing about your Nature is that in order to appreciate the good bits, you have to accept the bad bits as well.

This way, you can take your mum's dogs on a walk from Flushing to Mylor, and thoroughly enjoy the springy benefits (flowering gorse bushes, violets everywhere, neat patches of primroses) and not be put off for an instant when Head Dog adds to his previous crimes of:

a) rolling in a dead dolphin.
b) disembowelling a baby rabbit in front of a group of small children.

by introducing his new hobby of:

c) eating cowpats.

He didn't then follow you and hand over a rude video, did he?

what do you mean by "biscuity"?
the shape? or the crunchiness?
the colour?

"disemboweling a baby rabbit", honestly, it's easter sunday. couldn't you have held him back?

also, if dr maccartney and dr todd don't get it together soon, my head is going to explode.

The shape.

The other incidents were over the past year.

Sometimes a head needs to explode. It's Nature's way.

Sometimes a head needs to explode.

Was that a hint?

Anyway, I'm the kind of person that would laugh at the rabbit thing. *shame*

Going off topic with gay abandon, but do you use Final Draft?

I thought it was just their own shit they ate.

What breed of dog is it?

Friends of my family had two insane male Labrador Retrievers who used to eat anything they could fit in their mouths. Anything at all. Including crap. Taking them for a walk was always a great struggle between yank-back-on-the-lead and/or repress-gag-reflex.

M - I do use Final Draft 6 yes, although lots of other writers seem quite happy with Word. They're wrong though.

Dare I ask how a dog comes to be rolling in a dead dolphin?

You know, for a moment of idiocy I thought 'Head Dog' was an actual person.

And you DO realise, James, that if anyone's head explodes it'll be you who's held responsible? :p

Dogs can be unbelievably disgusting pretty much all the time. Most pleasant thing my dog has ever attempted - eating his own sick. True.

I do love him, though. But I would never let him kiss me.

Sounds like my mum.

James, can I ask a question? you're probably sick to the back teeth of Green Wing stuff; but do the episodes have titles? They're listed everywhere as 1, 2, 3...etc.

Someone was sick in this house once and when I went to clear it up I'd been beaten to it by the dog.

I promise to not pester you with questions or comments on GW (largely because I've never seen it).

Stubby used to eat the little treats in the cat litter. Mmmmm. Tootsie Rolls. Wait, more like Almond Roca. Tidy Cat Roca.

We saved a lot of money on cat litter though.

I've always wanted to play Cat Litter Roulette, using an unspecified number of unwrapped Ferrero Rochers.

Sadly, no one has ever wanted to play this game with me.

Maud said...

Thank you. My mum's been talking about it, and I know nothing of such matters.

Ah my dog once picked up a horse poo when she was a puppy, and was running around smiling. I got a bit of a shock when I asked her what she had in her mouth.
Cat litter roulette, ugh! I think I'd prefer the Russian version.
