Day two (gasp)
Still here (gasp)
Only a little mauled (panting) fur a bit wet.
No sign of him leaving yet, beginning to give up hope (gasp) send help soon………
Okay, Okay, I’ll come clean. As is obvious from the blurry photos above this morning I caved. I’m not proud of it, I had intended to hold out for longer but who could resist this?
He has whined, grovelled, licked and pestered me since last night to play with him. I wasn’t going to give in that easily. He needn’t think that he can just come crawling back and I’ll respond immediately. So I made him wait and work.
The Producer finally realised that he had made my bed smell awful and washed it. That was one good thing. Then she put it under a table and although he can get into it, it is harder so he prefers his big one. I’m allowed on the red sofa he isn’t. Although he doesn’t realise that yet and he tried to follow me onto it after our game this morning and fell sprawling onto the kitchen floor legs flailing! Very funny. He is remarkably uncoordinated.
So with these rules in place I chose, I CHOSE, to play. The blurry photos above are the best that The Producer could do under the circumstances, I hope to train her to do better in future.
I hate to say it but you might all be right. With time we might be pals and if we’re not, well, he certainly will make a good bodyguard and a very handsome accessory!
I have learnt that I’m stronger than I thought. If I ignore him it drives him nuts hee! hee! The revenge of the older dog. I may be smaller but …… size isn’t everything!!
Oh and they have finally settled on a name. He is Raffles, Raffi for short. The Producer was going with Polo because that was her beloveds favourite but he gave in this morning. I don’t think it had anything to do with the nicknames she was using like: ‘Po-face’ and ‘Po-belle’ (that last one she pronounced like poubelle, french for rubbish bin), she plays dirty!
So my almost pal Raffles and I bid you adieu – love from The Princess, stirred but not shaken (and yes I do know that is the wrong way around but it is how I feel)
