Shopping at White’s Hill

Posted December 29th, 2012 by admin

 

One thing I’ve noticed when shopping at White’s Hill is that most of the shoppers are elderly.  Another thing I’ve noticed when shopping at White’s Hill is that many bring their doggies and tie them up outside the supermarket while shopping.  This is eye candy to me and I want to stop and give every one of them a cuddle.

Weeeeell, this was the cutest of the cute.  I saw this puppy arrive with his Dad.  I saw his Dad stop near this pillar and pull on the lead and nothing happened.  Dad pulled on the lead again and the lights went on.  Oh, said the puppy.  OK, I’ll jump up on this pillar, and he did.  Then Dad dropped the lead and headed off to shop.  Just like that…  Gorgeous…

This puppy entertained everyone who walked past, especially the children, and eventually went to sleep…  So beautiful…

"Good dog..."

Pandemonium at Samford

Kevin opened the sunroom doors to place our pillows outside to air in the sun.  Kevin didn’t realise that Bear, the neighbour’s long-haired, black, German Shephard was being taken for a walk right past our place.  Also, Kevin didn’t realise that Pepper, our German Shephard was right behind him as he opened the door.

Yep, you guessed it.  Pepper was really excited and pushed past us to romp out to greet Bear.  We knew at this time that both dogs are not aggressive, but still, we didn’t want Pepper upsetting Bear’s walk.

Our response was good entertainment for the neighbours.  Pepper was racing towards Bear.  Kevin was racing after Pepper.  Elaine, in her nightie and dressing gown, was racing after everyone.

Pepper greeted Bear with great gusto and they were having a great romp and a great chat about whatever dogs chat about.  However, Pepper instinctively knew when Kevin was trying to grab her and escaped to romp with Bear again.  It is really difficult to grab the collar of a German Shepherd that is romping with another German Shepherd.  No amount of begging and pleading worked.  It was pandemonium.

Eventually when Kevin grabbed Pepper he scruffed her.  Scruffing doesn’t hurt but it is how the mother dogs chastise their puppies, so Pepper thought she was in trouble, and she gave a little wail.  Yep, you heard it from us.  This really big, brave, German Shepherd wailed as she dropped to the ground.  Got her…

Pepper was banished to the garden behind the house to chase the Butcher Birds who try to steal her bones and all was well.

I can’t remember whether the pillows got aired in the sun that day.

Thankfully, the home owners have invited us back to house sit again next year

We have the crime scene cordoned off with tape…
We have evidence…
We have photos…
We have sirens screaming and police everywhere…
The whole neighbourhood is wondering WHAT NOW is happening at this residence…
We have 3 suspects, who pretend to be pussies but must be hardened criminals because they are VERY tight-lipped and they just don’t seem to care…
We have traced a criminal record for one of the suspects…  Sonny spent some nights at the RSPCA before being bailed out by his parents, found via his microchip…  Mmmmm, not looking good for him…
There is no sign at all of any remorse, so we are definitely dealing with hardened criminals…

Missy proudly gave us her EVIL look…

 

Smooch claimed to be working late…

 

Sonny asked “How could you possibly suspect ME?”

One of the neighbouring dogs has told stories of shocking scenes during the night…
Another neighbourhood dog has told us to not listen to Wowser because he doesn’t get it, and besides, he digs up my bones all the time – and I think he is just seeking attention for himself…
Fingerprinting is next.
We have tried to get one of the suspects to roll over to give evidence for the prosecution…
Trouble is, they all want to do roll-overs and for selfish reasons only, for their own tummy tickles, and nothing to do with evidence for the prosecution.
It is a heinous crime.
We have no body…
We have no weapon…
The motive is impenetrable because the witnesses are colluding.
But the camera doesn’t lie and the photos tell it all…
