Here are some of the daily doings of Plum and her owner.
Oh Plum, you poor thing! I do sympathise.....my (human) sister used to work in a huge, very smart building full of (apparently) clever and famous people, all wearing funny nylon clothes and towels. Dogs were absolutely forbidden but she (naturally) wanted to show me off to her friends. She put me in a Tesco Value Bag for Life!! Can you imagine the humiliation? When we were in the lift, the man in charge of it all got in too so she put her lunch on my head! I was so good - I didn't make a sound (or eat the lunch until later) but I do have the photographs to prove it and I find them quite useful for occasional blackmail....I hope you are fully recovered from the trauma and have exacted appropriate recompense from Emma.Love and commiseration from Fudge xx
Well, there we are. Someone who absolutely understands. Poor us. We are continually tried and tested - and where is the reward at the end of it? Reward? Ha! Just more humiliation and laughter. It happened again today, Fudge. But at least I didn't have sandwiches on my head I suppose.Love Plum xx
Dear Plum,At least you got a lovely massage from Amy! I hope that helped soften the blow. To be completely honest, I quite love travelling around in a bag. It gives me an entirely different view of the world and people seem to find me cute (blush).Big belly scratch from ,GiorgiP.S. Ellie says hi!
Dear Giorgi,Well, I don't know what to say. Perhaps I will try to have a new perspective about the bag from now on. Maybe yours is the most helpful comment of all. I'm not sure that the bag helps with the cuteness factor in my case. I think I just look peculiar.Love Plum x
Is this where the term "doggie bag" came from?! BAHAHAHAHA!!!!*Sorry...this commment is totally lacking any desent empathy whatsoever. It just kind of slipped out. I will be a better friend next time, I promise.
Oh ha ha. Thanks Hilarie. Next time I'm bundled into the bag I'll try to remember your hilarious joke and I'm sure it will cheer me up. (I don't know if you can tell - being such a sensitive soul, but I'm being sarcastic).Love Plum ;-)
Hunter was smuggled into a hotel in downtown Memphis. This large black zippered bag kept sort of hiccuping in movement! Thankfully no one noticed in the check in commotion. Looks like you got away with it, too! Love, Vicki and Tulip xoxo
But Vicki… I hate the bag. I don't fit into it that well and it happened again today and the man at the chiro place gives me very black looks, so it is all excruciating.Love Plum xoxoxo
Bit worried about you, Plums. Are you getting stiff, or were you just submitting to a stretching in sympathy with Emma? Either way, you want to watch this. There is a man in the village who habitually takes his enormous dog to unsuitable locations (restaurants, writing groups, churches), gets into screaming rows when the proprietor objects, and then never returns again. He's given up writing, and is getting short of places to have lunch. love, James
Dear James,Your village seems to be full of interesting people. I think you should invite the man with the enormous dog to come and have lunch at your house. Then you can be friends with the enormous dog and maybe they know someone who has a puppy. Also, you could encourage him to start writing again.Love Plum x
Dear Plum, I've been to Sports Injuries clinic and there's a dog there. He is a golden retriever - I stroke him. My granny and pa have dogs which are Norfolk terriers. Pa bought me your book, Plum Dog. From Guy 🐶
Dear Guy,I think your pa must be very clever to choose my book for you. I hope you like it.I know some Norfolk terriers and I am trying to be friends with them but one of them is quite bossy which makes me nervous.Love fromPlum xx
It could be worse Plum, My Mum goes for acupuncture. I have never been but apparently she pays to have some nice Japanese man put needles in her. I think I would rather go where you were and have a massage instead.Love, Gracie
Dear Gracie,They are ODD. That is a fact. They make their lives so busy and complicated, then they go and get somebody to stick pins in them or make their bones crack to make them feel better, and then it starts all over again. I know Emma worries about me getting bored, but really - I mean, honestly. Doing nothing isn't boring, is it Gracie?Love Plum
I agree, doing nothing is a skill that more humans need to develop.
