Sorry for laughing, but you do make it sound so funny Laughing

Hope Monty's paw has not suffered any long-term damage from being bathed in mud and that you didn't suffer any ill effects from the wine consumption Very Happy

I await your novel 'The Montinator Diaries' should be right up there with Adrian Mole!! Actually it won't be in the fiction section, will it? Laughing Laughing

Sorry to laugh but I cna picture it now. I can attest to the efficacity of Mothercare fridge locks as I too have had a fridge and microwave raider!

Hoping that the boy cna now get some exercise and you cna regain some sanity xxx

Days Nine, Ten . . . Ah, you get the idea . . .

So.

I have developed an alcohol problem and the dog is back on the lead, though minus the humiliating sock.

This stalemate has to end sometime.

Iím thinking tomorrow morning.

The dog, me, the grass behind the leisure centre, a ball chucker, hotdogs to entice him away from the mud puddle.

The big question is, how does a short fat lady get her Dalmatian fit again?

We could run together, but frankly Iíd be in A&E after a few strides . . .

I could invest in a treadmill. He might respond well to a carrot dangled over the front . . . for about two minutes.

Iím going to have to walk him, miles, arenít I? Same way we started out all those years ago . . .

Iím tired just thinking about it!

Any and all alternative suggestions gratefully received . . .

Mood of Dog: Weak kneed with anticipation

Buy a bike and a springer. Got one for mine and she pulled me for miles!!
If you have a well trained, non pulling dog(!!) this might not work quite so well and you might find you actually have to pedal.
If the former make sure the bike has good brakes!!

Have you got a hydrotherapy pool near you? Swimming is great for getting dogs fit. Some insurances will even pay for a few sessions if the vet recommends it.

Otherwise get yer joggers on!! Laughing Laughing

The bike idea has merits, and I wouldnít have to work too hard, lol, but I must admit Iím worried about the 90 degree angle Ďoh look rabbití risk . . .

Hydrotherapy on the other hand sounds much safer, and quite tempting given the recent hot spell.

But now for a question.

The fur. When is it going to grow back?

The poor dog was scalped in several places during his recent troubles and though there is some re-growth the rest of his fur is growing at the same rate and the patches are, if anything, more obvious now than they were then.

Other dog walkers are looking at me like Iíve just ripped him off a drip and dragged him straight out for a walk, even though the object of their concern is running rings round (and in some cases jumping over) their dog. Until he gets tired that is, and decides to pretend heís staring intently at something in the distance . . .

Sounds like you are having quite the time! when he is back to full health we should meet up for a walk again, especially now we are a lot closer. We could always take them all swimming again! As long as Monty can put up with our soon to be 3 spotties .

The Hatch on the A43 towards Brackley has a hydrotherapy pool. There's probably one a bit closer though, I know moulton college have a pony one so I'd be surprised if they didn't have a doggy one!
