NEW GIRL ON THE BLOCK
FRÅN SVERIGE. Or if you prefer ‘Hello!’.
I am Noor and I will be your new insider in the Cranstal
household from now on. My predecessor’s only guidance
to me has been to tell me that I should not get too smug
about my fledgling journalistic career as ‘she will
be a very hard act to follow! Especially as English is at
least her first language!’ I think that this comment
is an underhand reference to the fact that I have been known
to speak/understand nothing but Swedish when under instruction/confrontation
or any sort of dark cloud. I seem to speak a lot of Swedish!!!!
to get back to the main subject. FOLLOW???? When did I ever
FOLLOW Affrika?? Each day when Kennelman lets us three girls
out in the paddock together…………..I
am OFF!! With Affrika and Tiisi desperately trying to catch
up. The only problem is that it did not take the two of them
very long to work out that the only chance they had of seeing
anything other than my tail and my backside was if they ‘worked
it’ between them. For two elderly pensioners they are
surprisingly nimble on their feet when executing one of their
rather sophisticated pincer movements!
into my show critiques has been some comment that I am ‘fit
and well muscled for my age’. You bet I am!! 50 trips
flat out round the paddock being pursued by the saluki equivalent
of Tyrannosaurus Rex x 2 would put muscles on a boiled egg!!!
I sometimes think that letting me out with these delinquent
pensioners could be the TwoLegs revenge for the dog room
(among other things!!)!
TALENTS!! I have observed that in her introduction
Mopps has made reference to my talents in interior design.
However I am very disappointed that whilst she sees fit
to mention them - they been totally and completely unappreciated
in any way by the TwoLegs. You would think that a person
new to the household who was prepared to put in a great
deal of effort in order to give their somewhat boring wooden
dog beds/work surfaces/rugs/Italian wallpaper that oh so
desirable ‘distressed look’ would be deeply
