Guest Post – Sandy talks about herself — 25 Comments

  1. Sandy seems a touch dyslexic (which recalls the story of the dyslexic agnostic amnesiac who would lie awake at night wondering if there was a Dog – groan!)

  2. Ian – You’ll have to excuse Sandy. Not only is her spelling a little weak, but her claws need clipping. It doesn’t help.

  3. Try reading this. You’ll be amazed how well you do. I came across it some time ago when looking up info on dislexia.

    This is interesting!

    fi yuo cna raed tihs, yuo hvae a sgtrane mnid too Cna yuo raed tihs? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can. i cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno’t mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whotuit a pboerlm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt! .

    I’ve tutored an adult with literacy problems, but tutoring dyslexics is probably best left to specialists who have studied courses for their vital work.

  4. Thank you Kairenhte. I tinhk Kenerthais are geart too.

    Tanhk you Tciftrmrhiainl. Taht was vrey nice. I lkie that.

  5. Grandad: Bertie’s a bit busy at the moment – there are new lambs in the field and he spends all day drooling on the windowsill, but I’ll round him up and get him typing later! xx

  6. Dear Sandy

    This is Dibley here (Dibs for short). We don’t have a dog (hurray!) in this house so my owner made me write back. I am a tabby cat of some renown. If you’re wondering about my name it’s because they say I resemble the Vicar of Dibley 🙁 but I suppose it could have been worse, I could’ve been called Harney 😀

    I enjoyed hearing all about you and also, your friend, Wouldye. I hope Bertie keeps his promise and drops you a line.

    Please tell Bruno that LoveBear shares his dislike of washing machines.

    Paws to you,

  8. Great, now my LaBRAdor Retriever wants to blog too! But I told her I’m not sharing my computer…she’ll have to use her LAB-top! (oh-ha-ha-ha-ha!) Seriously, I love this post & bet you had fun writing it – I can just imagine Sandy driving your car! 🙂

  9. Hello Erevdyoby,

    I will psas that msgasee on to Bruno too. He is siltl a bit dizzy.

    Tanhk you eyenvroe. Now it is tmie for seelp.


  10. Sandy has buggered off to bed, so I have the puter back.

    Gerry – She told me to tell you that yours was the only sensible post she could read. Did your dog type that?

    Sinéad – I sometimes think she has too much personality. A dog with a wicked sense of humour can be difficult to like with. And I’m not joking!

    E Mum – Tell Bertie that lambs don’t taste nice without mint sauce.

    Cranky – Your Royal Hound is a wuss.

    Olga – The reason I haven’t been around is that I had to go into town. Sandy drove me there and back. She’s one of the safest drivers I know of.

    Roy – I tried that 🙂 It occurred to me after that Odiogo would have fun with it. It gave me a headache!

  11. Awww…what a beauty! Reminds me of my girl…she was a border collie. She would freak out when ever she’d see something in the sky…hot air balloons were the worst! Sometimes it took me awhile to even find it in the sky to figure out what she was barking at!

  12. Quoting Braino –
    “Bruno is the perfect partner, handsome, cuddly, cheap to feed and doesn’t say much!”. Now where can I get me a Bruno??? No, seriously, I need a Bruno!!

  13. Charmed – I don’t know where Bruno came from. He just wandered in one day and hasn’t left since. He hasn’t even been out into the garden!

  14. Is it true that some pet dogs assume certain facial characteristics of their human owners? Now I’m never going to buy me a shaggy dog – it would be like looking into a mirror every time I met him and I’d be ashamed at the sight.

  15. That is a tricky one, Gerry. I know there is supposed to be a physical resemblance, but the only common characteristics we share are long straight hair, a lot of growth on our chins and beautiful eyes. My nose isn’t quite as long as hers and I don’t have a tail.

    She grins the odd time, but we all do that. Her expressions are all in the eyes, ears and body language. She just asked me for a game of tennis by pouting her nose, first at the tennis racket and then at the balls. She then gave a little ‘woof’ and rested her chin on my knee. [I won the game, by the way].

    I don’t tend to use my ears too much to express myself.
