Hello fans, Lucy here!
I'm looking a bit sorry for myself in the above picture because the female servant told me off this week because I kept refusing my worming tablet. After about the 7th attempt her patience wore a little thin but I was determined to hold out for as long as I could.
I can smell the approach of the flea and worming ordeal like a rat! Firstly, the servants huddle in a corner a couple of weeks before and plan a date to give us the treatment so I automatically store that date in my doggy brain. The male servant then orders the treatment and after a few days the postman delivers it. My primary strategy is to sabotage the goods as they arrive but there are three fairly major problems: 1) I can't open the front door, 2) I can't do a good enough impression of a human being in the eyes of the postman and 3) I can't hold a pen let alone forge the signature of the servants. I therefore adopt plan B which is basically to try and hide when the female servant approaches with the treatment. That normally fails pretty quickly so I then pretend I have no legs so she can't get me into the kitchen. That plan fails pretty quickly too. I then try and complain of an upset stomach but as I can't talk their language that falls flat on its face as well. In the end the only option is to grudgingly accept the flea treatment and then keep spitting the worming tablet out until the servant gets bored and gives up. Unfortunately she doesn't get bored (although does say some naughty words at me as she gets more annoyed at my behaviour) and doesn't give up either, so eventually I have no choice but to take the tablet. Ben and Kylie are much better behaved than me and the treatments don't bother them but I don't like doing things I don't want to even though I have little choice in the end :-(
In other news, our Autumn and winter wardrobe has re-appeared this week as it's started getting colder. We like wearing our coats and we have lots of different colours to choose from. The male servant hinted he might be getting us some new coats this winter so be assured we'll show off our new wardrobe as and when we get it!
Until next time. Stay warm and watch out for flea and worming treatment (not that it makes any difference to us, we still have to take it!) Lucy, Ben & Kylie x

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.
