A trotter has been thrown in the bin. I wanted my mistress to repair pig not throw out his disembowelled pieces. That trotter still had good chewing potential. I suppose if she hadn’t done it then my master would have done when he came home. He seems unimpressed by all the bits of toys lying around. My mistress did try sticking up for me on that one saying it was only like Andrew who still had all the bits of broken toy he had trodden on. It seems that as a dog I am not supposed to have the same feelings as a child.

Who is he kidding? Has he seen the wonderful cartoons by my favourite cartoonist Charles Barsotti that show amongst other things the problems dogs go to psychiatrists with, having been utterly destroyed by the whims of their owners. I can’t bear to look at the ones that show the little dog with the tear in his eye, I just come over all emotional. How could any owner tell their dog that they regret getting them and they should have got a cat instead? It just breaks your heart.

Anyway all that just goes to show I can have feelings too and the throwing out of bits of my favourite toys are bound to leave me upset. Maybe I should have had a go at using the Superglue myself, but there seemed to be a few risks attached, not last of which was how to get the lid off the glue without sticking my mouth together.

This whole Ebay thing has got completely out of hand. Why would anyone pay more for an old book than it cost in the first place? Surely if it has been used that should reduce the price. Besides which surely if you are buying a present for someone the least you can do is get them a new one.
