I still can't work out who's more mental... xtriple or Lorn.
I don't think I'd believe these stories except that there is always accompanying pictorial evidence. :lol:

nope I'm not rying to tell him anything. My youngest is now 13 so |m really don't want to go backl to the beginning again!
Chester is supposed to rest and only go in the garden on a lead, but he's only 7 months old and you try explaining that to a pup. Actually he's been pretty good, except when I go out with Phoebe, then he won't settle and drives XT mad, who then gives him lots of doogy treats and biscuits which defeats the whole object of keeping his weight down.

I would take him twice a day but the slight flaw in my plan is it's all big hills down here, we live on a hill and youngests school is on to top of another hil 1 3/4 miles away, I'd forgotten how awkward prams are on narrow pavements and hadn't factored in that chester is nearly 4 stone, so I think he'll have to settle for once a day, a least he can see he's not missing out!

What she's not telling you is she got stopped by a PCSO this morning and nearly locked up for blatent insanity! Seriously, the PCSO thought it was hilarious and spent ten minutes stroking Chester... as did half the population of Brixham! If he does have to have operations (£4K 8O ) then he'll be in plaster for ages and definitely NOT allowed to walk anywhere so she'll be doing this in shorts and a bikini top - that should get some funny looks.

Normally "The Mad Old Woman" in each town looks like a "Bag Lady" not some hot little fitty in skimpy clothes!

I despair, I really do!

It is indeed! She's finally changed watches and the B'ling is getting an outing. Good on you for being the one person (on a watch forum) to notice! :D :thumbup:

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good God no. Have you seen the prices of prams these days? If the recycling centre had had one that's what he'd have got, but they didn't so we had to go to specialist babycare outfit and buy a "Pre-owned" pram. Got to say, it is "as new" though and relatively inexpensive. Working out cheaper every time he uses it as I thought (in all honesty) he'd be out of the thing within an 1/8 of a second!

However, apparently he loves it! He lays in it and surveys his Kingdom and waits for all and sundry to come to him and stroke his fevered brow, while he lays there, wrapped in blankets (can't let our little cherub get cold now can we :D ) and with his head on the padded edge of his hood... which I'm sure will go up to protect him from the wind and rain if he should ever be caught out in it!

As someone mentioned earlier, yes, we do consider Chester and Phoebe as family members and to a certain extent, our lives revolve around them. I know that sounds weird/pathetic, but we adore the little buggers and after all, we CHOSE to have them and so you make allowances for their needs. In some cases, it can be said that we prefer them to the spotty teenager upstairs who bugs the crap out of me, costs a fortune and for which we get zero return other than attitude and tantrums (the lad was NEVER like that when he was a kid!). At the very least with people with waggy tails, you get unremitting love and devotion, total faithfulness, and a true friend for life.

Oh, and they keep your feet warm in bed :lol:

I'd get the tracking sorted on the pram if I was you, check the tire pressures as often the previous owner would not have had it serviced......the brakes might be dog-gy too

A dog in a convertible.....seen a few of them in our time !

Is the cat in that basket behind "her in doors"?

How did the dog tell you it was fed up?

We took it into "Kwik-Fit" and they were very pleased to do the tracking. They weren't so happy to be paid in bonio's and a slightly chewed tennis ball. Chester did give the nice man a face wash though!

Both of them go in our convertible and are perfectly safe as they sit under the draught excluder that sits over the top of the rear seats (ha! You could fit two pre-school children in them if you chopped their legs off!) and have the heated air blanket directed at them. Phobe occasionally sticks her head through the gap 'twixt seat and car to get a wiff of fresh air up her beak!

What cat? We have two ('orrible things that kill everything in sight and then drag it home - and that's just the little one) but there isn't one in the basket.

Chester said "Woo-woo" in his most mournful and plaintive voice. That and the fact that he was limping fit to bust was enough for us to cart him off to the vets to be relieved of significant quantities of watch fund to be told what we'd found out on the internet for free :evil: Still, he did get a nice injection in the back of the neck and a bottle of stuff to be taken daily for a fortnight for our hundred quid.

If he needs the X-rays and ops then an insurance claim will have to be made.

Still, adore the little git and I think he should have his own account on here (though he's not very good at typing - he tends to just walk across my keyboard and break the keys, hence the occasional lack of spaces between words as the space bar is dodgy, and while we understand the different "Woo-woo's" that he utters, the slight variations in pitch and timbre may be hard to get across via a laptop!

Can't we make him "Forum mascot"?

Chester gets my vote, but I think we would have to commission The Laird to undertake a Poll. :thumbup:

Oh blimey! With Hans track record perhaps we'd be better off giving it a miss! It'd look like some demented half breed hound of the Baskervilles crossed with that little yappy thing you see on forums with misshapen teeth/gums and spiky hair!

Quick update ( I know you lot are hanging on every development :D ): Lorn has gone off to school without him. He's going FRANTIC!!!!! It would appear that he likes going out in his pram and does not approve of being left behind in the slightest :thumbdown:

To keep him quiet, I've just given him 4 custard creams, a slack handful of doggy chews and half a mug of coffee... he's now running round the house like a dog demented!
