I am not happy, as a matter of fact, I am outraged! Veronica has left for Sweden, ON VANLENTINE’S DAY!!
How can she abandon her “Loved ones”, on that very important holiday? What’s her problem? BTW I’m seriously starting to doubt the term “loved ones”.
We ALWAYS do something special for Valentine’s Day. Special meal, special picture, it’s a very special day. Look how cute I was three years ago. Adorable!
Now it’s me and Dennis, just the two of us…alone. You know what? We’ll show her we don’t need her…at all.
We go for long fun walks.
play our special “Tug of war” game
take long naps…on the bed! See, having a great life without her. She’ll have some serious explanation to do when she arrives tomorrow.
I love airports.
There she is, full of happy news, “Felicia we are going to start “NoseWork”, it’s fun, you’ll love it”.
What’s that now? Oh I don’t think so, anything with the word “Work” in it can’t be regarded as fun!
“Eva thinks NoseWork will be right down your alley” Well…ok…if Eva (Bodfäldt) says so, that’s a whole other story, guess it doesn’t hurt to give it a shot.
Barbro Rydén is a NoseWork specialist, that’s why Veronica went to Stockholm, to take a lesson with her. Apparently this Barbro person is really nice, she’s Eva’s friend.
(Incidentally I find it ridiculous to take a lesson without the dog, that is, without me!)
NoseWork is a canine sent detection activity. The dog has to mark an odour, on a box, furniture, outside or on a vehicle. There are several levels using scents by Eucalyptus, bay leaves and lavender.
Barbro made a demonstration with her two dogs:
Pzingo, the 11 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback, is searching through the boxes to find the Eucalyptus odour, he’s a real champion and works like a pro.
Tiger, the 6 year old labrador, is searching along the wall for the Eucalyptus odour. He’s just as talented.
I’m seriously jealous of their indoor training center! Not like us, we have to suffer through wind, cold and even snow.
Look at Tiger, is he showing off? Bet you I could learn to do that, easy!
Yes Eva, I agree, NoseWork is right up my street.
I can so be a NoseWork champion, I mean just look at me. If that’s not a dog with a great nose then I’m a cat!
Now here comes the real surprise and title of this story: Veronica has ordred a special Valentine, for me. Probably to make up for her absence.
As if I can be bribed..she won’t get off the hook that easily. I have high moral standards and I’m still furious.
Even an angry, unbribable Boxer, is allowed to be curious when the delivery man carries in a huge Box.
Is that Cloud7 I see through the window?
Is this what I think it is? Oh la la, Veronica must really feel bad!! She splurged.
YES!! It IS the new bed! The Valentine special! The “HIDEWAY HERRINGBONE BROWN” I can’t believe my eyes!
This bad boy needs to be tested immediately! Mmmmm sooo comfy, I love it! I know someone who’s going to be very jealous…Indya…he he
A second item, is that for Veronica? Oh, it’s the “WALKING-BAG”. It’s nice, very nice, and just my colouring but frankly does she really deserve a gift?
Oh well, what do I care, I have the “HIDEWAY”, the coolest bed EVER!
What? “Unbribable”…”furious”…”upset”..? Can’t hear you, Sleeping Boxer here!
