Kizzie will be staying with Ellie when B and myself go south to spend a weekend and watch Em get married. It was important that Kizz behaved herself and she was a little star. She ran around like the cutest puppy, and impressed Maz enough for him to agree to look after her. Sadly for me, Kizzie threw up on the way home.
Saturday morning is the Ist day of the puppy training class. Kizzie doesn't come until next week. I guess Lorraine needs to teach the humans first :)
Ben is the crazy greyhound who lives with C, H and E, regular readers will have read of one or two of his escapades.
I was a little worried about how he would react to Kizzie, but he was a charming gentleman, welcomed her into his home, wagging his tail. Kizzie hid behind us for a couple of minutes and then enjoyed running around and playing. I took two hide shoes for them to share and they thoroughly enjoyed them, occasionally swapping, you can see in the picture how relaxed they are, although Ben does seem to be guarding his :) When we left, Ben cried. Kizzie slept all the way home and wasn't sick once. I think we will be going again soon.
I did manage to visit my sewing room yesterday and achieved something. I took up two pairs of trousers, not exactly artistic but more than I have done for weeks. One or two days of sunshine and I am craving action of the studio type.
Today we introduced Kizzie to her new red harness. We couldn't agree on which way up it went, Kizzie thought it was a horse harness and grabbed it like a 'bit', she managed to squeeze both legs into one slot and then half ran and half hopped off. Even so she managed to out run both of us, partly I imagine because we were laughing so much at our ineptness and the ease which Kizzie out manouvered us. When we finally caught up with her and got it off, she trounced off and threw herself into her bed. If she could have slammed the door, she would have.
