A visitor


Yes, folks, it's me, Paddy and my pal Jake is visiting for a few days. 
On Wednesday night, I slept upstairs on the landing, as usual and Jake slept downstairs in his own bed, as he has before. Sometime during the night, I heard him moving around, so I went down to see what was going on. Would you believe it, he'd only had, not one, but several little 'accidents' around the dining room!
"Oh boy!" I said, "You're on your own with this one, pal!"
And I crept back upstairs back to my own bed. No-one's going to put this one on me!

Fine last night, though, Lucy. :)

I thought Paddy was a bit unkind. Has he never been in that position, so to speak?

Jake's Solicitor said...

On behalf of my client, the aforementioned Jake, I wish to contend that on the night in question the bodily excretions were deposited by a resident canine creature of questionable parentage - namely Patrick or as his owners prefer to call him - Paddy. My client insists that that is the case.

Jennyta said...

Actually, Lucy, no he is very good in that respect.
Jake's solicitor, I would strongly advise you to advise your client to plead guilty on this one. (See my answer to Lucy.)

"The fact that Jake has such a close relationship with Paddy demonstrates that he has established a family life here in the UK and it would infringe his human/canine rights to deport him."

Sorry, SP, he is being deported this morning, back to the bosom of his family.
