I've been busy with lots of work lately, as evidenced by my lack of blog posts.
There have been consequenses of my being preoccupied with business matters; while I have been sifting through papers, and working long computer hours, Dolly has mostly kept me company, sitting under the desk and appearing every now and then to ask "You finished yet? Can we go for a walk?" When the answer is no, she goes off to investigate the food situation, or see what the weather is like, or put her nose to the space beneath the front door and smell who's walking by.
But she has also been doing this;
I had stern words to her. I'm sure it had an effect. She looked sorry, and wagged her tail a lot, very quickly. I'm sure that means, 'I won't do it again Mum, honest'
On the other hand, it may also mean "You finished yet? Can we go for a walk?"
