and a Grandkitten
...they are great sisters.
This was one of our first pets when V. and I were growing up...
Jamie, a black poodle.
A really smart dog.
We also had an afghan hound, Kahli,
a not so smart dog, who kept running away.
Our dad was really sick at the time and forever trying to find the dog was a stress Mum didn't need. So to try and discourage this aberrant behaviour, the vet recommended getting a companion for the afghan. Being responsible pet-owners, Mum and Dad bought Jamie.
He was so smart,
he would pull down the rope that restrained the afghan;
Kahli would chew through it;
and the two of them would run off!
This is my submission, this week for
and just for a laugh, if you get the chance, watch the
old BBC series Auf Wiedersehen Pet
absolutely nothing to do with animals...well sort of!
