Anything goes wrong and I am up for big bucks. In order to accommodate a dog, I have moved my chair further away from the desk and moved the computer closer to the edge. Yes, I know, people type with dogs on their lap all the time but for me it’s a new experience – and it’s not my dog. I have been looking after this little fellow for friends who have gone to Adelaide for medical treatment. This is a dog that they adopted but it was a rescue dog who had been abused, chained up and left to fend for itself. It took a lot of work by the South Australian Dog Rescue to look after him to the stage where he could be adopted. However, he is a very “clingy” dog and hates to be left on his own (Understandable) This was the reason they felt that he would not be put into boarding kennels and decided to ask me to look after him. For the last couple of weeks they have brought him over to get used to my dogs Not the greatest success and at the moment it’s sort of “Armed Neutrality” – growling but not fighting. This dog needs to be touched and to be very close to his human – hence him being on my lap. He will not look at my wife at all and was upset because I went out this morning. He is very affectionate but my two are ganging up on him. I was out working in the garage for a while and decided to come back inside for coffee. I came to the back door and my two were standing guard at the back door and growling when he came near. The little buggers were refusing to let the visitor pass. Rather than have a confrontation, I took him out the gate and had Annabell open the front door and brought him in that way. Actually, I am , in an odd sort of way, quite proud of my two the way they worked together against what they saw as an intruder. :o)
Anyway, that was his morning and afternoon and now the little fellow has gone home. Friends came back from Adelaide this afternoon and off he went back home – and I kind of miss him – even after only three days. At least the computer is back in a less precarious position – that’s always something. I took several photographs of the dog and for some unexplainable reason, this program insists on setting them in in a Landscape setting rather than a Portrait setting, which is annoying. And yes, I have resized them, cropped them and I open them and they are nice portrait, but when I try to insert one on here it reverts to landscape. I guess you can take it that I am not the world’s greatest photographer – more a point and shoot kind of person.
