Here I am soon after my arrival at my new home with my humans. Of course, it was all a bit new and confusing at first because my mum was no longer around, and nor were my sisters who I’d spent a lot of time romping and playing with. Blimey, the world outside seemed a bit big sometimes, but it was – and still is – always exciting.
Needless to say, I loved romping and playing with my humans, and playing with the objects, called “toys”, they gave me. What I had to do though was learn a few new things, like what “Be busy” meant. They would let me out into the garden and say “Be busy”. I had absolutely no idea what that meant, but when I had a pee on the floor inside the house, they said this “Be busy” thing and put me out into the garden straight away.
I eventually worked it out. It meant don’t pee on the floor inside the house and pee in the garden. First big lesson; all part of learning the ropes.
Thought: isn’t this human laguage strange? What have ropes got to do with peeing….?!
