The kid

Looks so cute and innocent here, doesn't he? He isn't!
I think Jenny's too busy to write posts at the moment - I've heard her mutter darkly about Jake going back to where he belongs (wherever that is), as she mops up yet another of his 'little accidents' on the dining room floor. What's the problem with him? He's six, for heaven's sake; that's middle aged in dog terms and at that age, he should have perfect control of his bladder - like me. 
Mind you, that's not all. He's quite sneaky too. Last week, Jenny caught him nicking one of the TV remote controls and hiding it in his basket and then there was the incident the other day. Keith has an electric massage thingy for his legs, which he had left on the floor under NASA, still plugged in and guess what the canine idiot did? He decided to have a chew on the lead and nearly electrocuted himself!
Guess he won't be doing that again in a hurry!

From the look of the photo, that brush with a live wire has done strange things to Jake's tail.

That's the only bit his previous owners haven't clipped. :)I'm waiting till the rest of his coat grows back and then I'll get him clipped properly.

He shouldn't still be peeing in the house; unless, as it's new to him, he's trying to claim it somehow. He's still a cute lad, whatever he does.

It's only happened about three times, Cro (Paddy was exaggerating a bit!)but I am hoping he will settle down soon. He has been used to being out in the garden all day, so maybe that's the problem.

Hi Jenny, you may have noticed me going through your archives recently - nothing sinister! Have been interested in your late father-in-law. Mentioned him to my husband who knew his name before I even said it. Also love reading about Paddy and now Jake. Was so sad about your Son. Will visit you regularly now to hear what you are all doing. Take care, best wishes, Wendy

Hi Paddy! It's me, Yorkshire Pudding in New Zealand. Can't you control Jake for your doting owners? Give the little fecker a feel of your canines on his little fluffy rump. That'll bring the ill-mannered creature into line.

Jennyta said...

I'm doing my best, YP. It ain't easy!

Jennyta said...

Wendy, you're very welcome to visit. I'm curious to know how your husband knew Keith's father.

He hasn't actually met him. He just knew of him through his books etc. We ran a small engineering business and lots of castings were experimented on in our back yard.
Love the comment from Yorkshire Pudding!
