My name is Penny and I am a sort of Lurcher who lives with Grandad at the Manor. He is letting me write today for a change.
I had an exciting day a couple of days ago. Grandad put on my harness which usually means something interesting. If he lets me into the car without a harness it just means we are driving somewhere and back again without any walks, which seems a bit pointless but Humans are like that sometimes. Maybe he’s just bringing the car for a walk?
But my harness was on and we drove in the car. We stopped in the village and I got out on my lead. Of course I had to visit every lamppost and litter bin to savour the glorious smells of piss left by other dogs. I left a lot of piss of my own for others to enjoy.
We came to a gate and I suddenly felt strange. I knew the gate meant something special but I couldn’t remember what. Anyway I went in the gate. The place looked familiar but I couldn’t remember why. Anyway I followed my nose and came to a door. Grandad opened the door for me and I went in.
Suddenly I was surrounded by excited people all screeching my name and wanting to pet me. That was nice. And then I remembered….
They gave me loads of chicken pieces and I remembered everything. I remembered that I had to wait while Grandad ordered a coffee [whatever that is?] and then we went outside and sat in the sun while Grandad talked to other Humans. I wonder why Humans never sniff each other’s bottoms? Humans are strange.
I hope I never forget this place again.
