He’s chewed the new grapevine, but not the iceberg roses

13 May

So, we’re calling in the ‘we come to you’ dog trainers. It’s all very middle class working families, isn’t it? But as the mister said ‘you’ve got a station wagon and a beagle…if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck…’. I guess the only thing I would’ve added was the pink pashmina (currently draped around my shoulders in a most becoming fashion).

    I don’t know if it’s worth mentioning that beagles are supposed to be quite hard to train…. Jay grew up with one who was semi-trained. They have ‘poor recall’ as they’re basically a walking nose. Though you can train them to do food-related tasks (think the Customs beagles)

    Good Luck with the ‘We come to you’s,
    We tried that. It hasn’t worked, as one member of the household won’t adhere to the rules. GRRRRR. Technically, it is not the trainer’s fault. It is ours -or the disobedient one that is!
