OK Tikva, I will unhook your tether from where it is coiled out of your reach [I really do not want a strangled puppy], clip it onto your harness, open the door and you can go out. All sorted but the mini monster took one look and said it was too hot and no way was she going out. Fine. Come on in and I will unclip you and re-coil your tether [only thin cord] and close the door so the air-con will keep you happy. Around 5pm when the sun had moved round to the back [yes I know, it is the earth moving, not the sun] and the front finally had shade, mini monster went out. Did a Pereg in that she ran [scuttled more like it] for a far as her tether let her one way, then back the other way... ...and then came in to pee on on a puppy pee pad. Oh well - one day she will learn, but oh 'eck it is taking such a long time to train her. House train, no bite train, no jump up train, gerroff train - and if I am on the throne, please Tikki, stop trying to pull my nikkies down when I am trying to pull them up.
