It's me & Ethan

She's been part of our family for almost a year.

In that year she has broken a beautiful Christmas decoration which has sentimental value AND had even survived Ethan😲🤯

She's figured out how to open the food bin.

She knows where her treats are, how to get them and how to nag for one.

She lives for TV and enjoys "Coronation Street" especially (due to the cats two second appearance in the opening credits😂)

Now, I may not know alot about dogs but I do know that they can be very clever 😉

If I find something amiss in the sitting room and the kids didn't do it, she slys off to her bed and even tries to close her gate.

She has taken some of the kids toys and hidden them in her bed,using her body to hide the contraband 🙄

She's barks at everything and everyone that may come into our garden except for toddling toddlers.

The older she gets, the more her small dog syndrome shows.

She barks like she's a Great Dane when infact she's a Jack Russell.

She has the bravery and confidence of an Irish Wolfhound especially when other dogs pass her by or pass by our window or look in her or our direction.

And don't even start me on cars or bin lorries 😲

She does not like one neighbour in particular for no reason other than she can,I guess🤔

She growls at people who come into our home but wags her tail at the same time,leaving everyone including herself confused - the visitors want to say hello but rightlyful worry about the growling - she on the other hand has no idea why they won't pet her as her tails wallops my leg and she tries hard to jump up to make them pet her.

She thinks growling is a form of talking.

When I tell her it's not,she gives me a dirty look.

Oh yes, dogs can give dirty looks or the side eye as I like to call it.

Here are just some of the reasons I get that dirty look 👇

1- I told her to stop barking .

2- I won't share my food with her.

3- I don't want to fetch the ball, that's her job.

4- She's sitting on my seat and I ask her to move.

5- She's been at the food bin and I then remember to lock the bin.

6- I don't want to go out for another walk just because a dog passed by the window.

7- I tell her it's only a bag blowing in the wind and to calm the F down.

8- I cursed at her.

9- I asked "Did you do this?" While holding a chewed kids toy and also already knowing the answer. I think she knows I know hence the dirty look.

10- I remind her that that is not hers, as she drops yet another kids toy on the ground.

11- I gave a pet to another dog in front of her.

12- I said hello to Mr Wobbles ( the neighborhood cat)

How's your furry friend in comparison ?

I'm slightly nervous about Halloween with all the kids calling dressed in costumes to our door 😜🤣

I'm hoping she keeps her small dog syndrome under control 🤞🤞 and doesn't loose her 💩

*Full disclosure - I kinda spoil her*

  1. Did you ever find out what the canteen lady’s name was? I have 2 aunts who work there and was just wondering if it was one of them. Because the way you describe her sounds like them both. But all the staff are so kind and get little or no recognition for the job they do. So from myself and the many times I’ve spent overnight with my 3 boys (ESPECIALLY my eldest son now 18) thank you ladies from the bottom of my heart xxxx

    1. Hey Suzanne! Yes I did indeed. Nora is the lovely ladies name! Yoou’re absolutley right, there are many amazing ladies and gents working there, that’s for sure. Thank you so much for taking the time to get in contact. Wishing you and your boys well x
