A Man’s Best Friend…

People say we assign human values and emotions to our dogs. It’s called anthropomorphism, a word often used when an older couple get a dog because their child has gone off to University and so the dog becomes the child substitute…

Anyway I digress. If we assign human values to our dogs, then what’s it called when our dogs assign their values to us?

Are dogs smart? Generally speaking, hell yes!!! Especially working breeds like Border Collies and German Shepherds.

Well Michka hasn’t quite figured out what’s going on, but our big lad, Bailey, knows something isn’t quite right. After all the human members of “his pack” don’t spend hours putting all their possessions in these big black cases; They certainly don’t bag up 56 bags of dog food and put them in one BIG bag….

You have the joys of going on a holiday, having an adventure, but this is the other side as Kim and I have to leave our two beautiful German Shepherds in a kennels.

It’s a rather strange experience seeing we have never put any of our dogs in kennels. Bailey may have a passport but just flying him out there is about the same as both of our tickets there and back!!! :0) Pets and planes is a ridiculously expensive past time so we come to who do you trust to look after your beloved hairy hooligans? Well this task has fallen upon Val and Peter at the Kennels who I know will take great care of them.

It’s going to feel strange being in a foreign country without our dogs, but then again it’s only for 2 weeks. I’m sure we’ll manage…
