Ooops

Daisy got really muddy on our walk this morning and I decided a bath was in order.  Bear in mind she HATES having a bath, considers such activity is the height of torture and animal abuse, and feels that escape is her prime directive.

As on previous occasions, she survived and was so hysterically thrilled to be released from the bathroom (but not the bedroom - I’d shut the door) that in celebration she jumped ON TOP of her bed . . .



Whereupon all 23kg of her cracked the internal supports and there are now jagged bits of metal on the inside.  In defence of her stupidity the crate was not in its usual position because we are in the  middle of more house renovations (I'll write about them when the next phase is done).

Guess I’ll be buying her that new bed Management and I talked about a few weeks ago . . .

  1. Hi Jayne, just dropping in and returning your visit to my blog. I love having new blogs to read, especially if they have animals in them, so I'm looking forward to reading more of this one.

    Daisy looks lovely - going by the ears I would say she's GSD cross? She certainly made a mess of her bed when she jumped on it! :)

    1. Hi Eunice, thanks for the visit :-}

      We had a DNA test done in February 2013 and it threw up whippet and staffy at great-grandparent level . . . but you are right, we think there is GSD in the ears and goodness knows what else. Don't really care, she is a lovely, lovely girl and that is all that matters :-}

  2. Oh dear. Maybe she knew this was a way of getting a new bed. X

    1. It's a nice thought Jules, but most of the time she really isn't that bright!

    1. Oops indeed, and in the absence of her usual warm cave, let's all have a guess at where Madam will try to sleep tonight . . .

  4. Tivvy tolerates the shower but also goes scatty when it is over and demands a treat as payment for good behaviour.

    1. I remember you telling me that Tivvy is not enamoured of bathtime!

  5. The main advantage of our Staffy crew is that they all LOVE bath time; Dolly will go and sit in the bath hopefully. However, she also loves to roll in disgusting things (dead dolphin) so she needs those regular baths. Every Staffy owner I know here in Australia has a plastic wading pool in the garden for their dog :)

    2. Keryn, welcome to Bag End, thank you for your comment. Maybe there isn't very much Staffy DNA in Daisy after all? She is quite a delicate little lady and I can't see her rolling in dead dolphin anytime soon - thank goodness.

    1. Hi Amanda, yes and no. Not a conventional cave bed but an enclosed space into which I can put her electric under-blanket (yes, you really did read that!!!). Hope it turns up tomorrow - paid extra for quick delivery.

  7. Whoa, Daisy, you need to take things quieter and enjoy your bath. Hope the bed has arrived by the time you read this Jayne, as we've been away, so I'm on catchup. Have a good weekend and take care.
