My my my... I wish I hadn't been so smug when hearing all of your tails of poo rollings and eau de deadfish! Sat here behind my computer screen, gently chuckling away to myself, quietly thanking the doggie gods that Betty is a prissy princess who hates getting her paws dirty. Ruby is settling in very well, she is a lovely girl and she and Betty are more respectful and tolerant of each other. Betty has taught Ruby how to play and chase. Ruby has taught Betty that all the good dogs love a roll in the stinky stuff! Ruby is well and truly a roller! Her fav is bird poo- which we have a lot of in the garden as we have loads of trees. Big ones too, not these little white splodges you see around, no no no- nice big green things- the wood pigeons in our trees are well fed! I have been watching Betty pick up tips off Ruby, and while I find it disgusting and attempt to discourage them both, I can't help but giggle at Betty. It is clear she hasn't a clue what she is doing, she is just copying Ruby like an impressionable little sister. Ruby rubs her neck and shoulders on the poo, so Betty looks at the ground and throws herself chin first at a patch of grass. I don't think she quite knows what she is supposed to be achieving but as long as Ruby is doing it..! In other news we finally made it to the vet for a check over (I have been so busy at the moment I haven't had a second chance to think about it). The Vet agrees that she is older than 2- I am thinking 3 or 4. She is in good nick, apparently, she has a little lump next to one of her teats which the Vet said he will remove when she has her spay. He also said he is happy to spay her now as he doesn't think she is coming into season- but I would quite like her to settle in a bit more. She is due to go back for some more jabs- I have no history of vaccs- so I might book her in then. He was also supportive when he asked what I was feeding her and I told him that she was on a raw diet with Betty. Complemented that she seems to be doing well on it and hopefully it will help to sort her teeth out. Yay for the good news, boo for the poo rolling lessons!
