the ‘Cranstal Four’ returned home from Hound Association
delighted with a RCC won by our handsome Flash - plus a rosette
and great rejoicing all round because Noor had won BPIB. Tiisi – who
is the sproglet’s best friend (actually probably her only
friend) informed Noor that ‘ SHE had won BPIB…………….TWICE!!’ The
sproglet was impressed I could tell. But anything that Tiisi
does impresses the sproglet come to think of it.
Keepsake for Cranstal standing behind BOB and
Kennelman would appear to be still deep in silent prayer!!
IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT!’
Or so they say! Whoever thought that little one up had never encountered
a ‘Noor’ that is all that I can say. Over the last
two months I have been observing my fellow housemates reaction
to our latest addition and I have to say that we are each of us ‘making
it’ in a totally different manner.
Faris – who
likes to think that he is the pack leader. It is
really me of course. However the work that Faris puts in
means that I can rule by example rather than by imposing
discipline – saving me lots of time to spend asleep
on the best part of the duvet. Faris at first was very tolerant – I
mean Noor was a baby and as he is a gentleman he knew that
she had to be treated gently and with respect. That lasted
about 24 hours before Faris realised that baby she may be – but
she had absolutely no intention of treating anybody gently
and with respect!! Life was going to be a blast for Noor
and everyone was supposed to join in on her terms. Faris
is still trying to reconcile himself to the fact that whilst
Noor does occasionally show him some ‘respect’ she
has absolutely no intention of living her life according
to his rules. Or anyone’s come to think of it!
Flash – who
also likes to think that he is the pack leader. Whilst
to date the Two Legs are reminding Flash most firmly that
Faris is in charge - it has always been Flash’s aim
that this should be viewed as a purely temporary situation.
However once Noor arrived we could see Flash re-evaluating
the advantages of the responsibility of being pack leader.
We now think that he has put his plans for a leadership challenge
on hold for the foreseeable future - if there is any chance
that the aforesaid ‘leadership’ might involve
any responsibility for moderating Noor’s behaviour.
He does talk to her in Swedish at times – but we think
that Noor is unlikely to have heard any of Flash’s
Swedish vocabulary currently directed at her in the sheltered
confines of the Hisilome’s home in Sweden. In fact
we are not quite sure where he got it from either!!
