Running with the hounds

All right then, just a few days ago I discussed the problem with diets and dog food in relation to dog divas like moi. Very, very irksome indeed, diets and dog foods !

Related to this issue is the one about exercise . I know it is fashionable to run and jog and jump. I have many, many of these type of hound friends who do not mind jumping through the hoops, mindlessly chasing balls and frisbees .

But , really, not for me .

It’s not that I have anything against exercise , to each his own I say , but it’s not all right for a dog diva to get hot and sweaty . An occasional sprint , ( see photo ) to keep my assistants happy and because I do look spectacular with my golden ears flying in the air , is fine but tirelessly running and running and getting all hot and bothered under the collar …. shudder !!

I mean, if the purpose of all this exercise is just to get the blood coursing through ones veins then what about the more sophisticated and pleasurable route of full body massage ( see photo again )

Sigh … one of my assistants can have a career in dog massage. If you look closely she is such an expert that she can rub my head skilfully even whilst she looks away !
Oh yes, brisk dog massages is the route for me and other dog divas. And we will not take No for an answer.


Of course, in return , because , in life, there are no free lunches ( or in this case massages ) I do have to suffer multiple PDA’s ( Public Display of Affection , just in case you are not so acronym savvy ) in the way of expressions of adorations such as kisses, hugs, squeezes but I can live with it . Personally , I prefer sniffs, licks and general dog play ( horses call it horse play ) but humans will do what they have to do ! See photos.

Yup, it’s a dog divas’ life !

Animals and children go together like macaroni and cheese. Collected Tails of Jungle Land is a BIG book which has seven series, each with 14 books. Melody is the first of these series and has seven English books to entertain children of all ages. It is all about a Melody, a little cuckoo bird who is abandoned by her starry mother in the homely crows' nest. Melody desperately wants to sing but will the world hear her melodious voice in the midst of the cacophonous crows and their tutor, the bull frog . There are a host of entertaining characters - Banana Drama, the DJ and remix artiste ; Peekaboo, the middle aged peacock who wears big boots to hide his ugly feet and loves Flo Jo, the fashionista deer fleet of foot who is clad in her trainer shoes so she can run away from the din of the rapper crows and the tuneless toad ; Señor Julio, the blind thrush who teaches Melody to sing and his carrier plane and Man Friday, , Bat Van Friday, the bat with a personality disorder ( he doesn't know if he is a bird or a beast ) and many, many more !
