This week's reflections come from Kylie hound:
"Well, the servants have popped to the shops to buy some treasure to fill up our food cupboard. I think they maybe getting a little shopping for themselves too but that's of no consequence to us.. We did a stock- take with them before they left and we helped them to sort their shopping list into two categories. The first category, or Priority One as we call it is the things we need in order to happily function: Dog biscuits, chews, dog food, ingredients for home baked treats, toys, gravy bones, maybe a new three piece suite for us to lounge around on etc etc. The second category, or Priority two, is anything they need for themselves once they've bought all of our things. Priority one is essential, priority two is a luxurious extra and we make sure they understand that every week before they head out in the pouring rain.
Anyway, as I've been a good girl they've given me full access to the television in their absence (well, they haven't but I thought I'd grab the remote control anyway). I've been flicking through the channels trying to find something to watch- it's not like in the good old days when television was in black and white and there were just a few channels, it's just so confusing these days! Ben has asked me to find a programme about food so he can salivate while waiting for the servants to come back. The best I could find was Porridge and that didn't seem to have anything to do with food, it seemed to just involve a load of men in a prison. Anyway, it didn't really matter because Ben was snoring within minutes so he clearly wasn't that fussed. Lucy then asked me to find a good comedy as she loves to be amused. Again I couldn't find much and she didn't seem very impressed with a repeat of Lovejoy. In the end I found some nice music for us to listen to on Classic FM and before long we were all flat out snoring our heads off. This must have been the case because next thing we knew the servants had come back with bags and bags of shopping! I'm pleased to report they bought most of what we requested minus the three piece suite (maybe it's due for delivery later in the week)? so we forgot all about the television and helped them open the first box of dog biscuits instead.
It's not a bad old life and next weekend we're off on another adventure in the 'Hound Mobile' so looking forward to that and we'll tell you all about it next time"
(Kylie was in conversation with herself as Ben and Lucy were asleep and the humans were out. Still it somehow made it into print above so all's well that ends well)!

We are occasionally lively greyhounds who live with two human servants. Sadly our house- mate Ben crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 23/09/18, just a few hours after writing his final blog. We miss him so much but we know he's running free and no longer in pain.
