The Logs of Saga and Folly

A series of internal conversations within the minds of dogs!

In which Saga's thoughts are recorded in Green, whilst Folly's thoughts are in Red.


In which Saga gets wrongly blamed and tries some conceptual thinking,
whilst Folly goes on her Very First Walk and meets Strange Things

Today (Isn't it Always)
FollyFriend is big today
There is something called 'remember' - but ME has forgotten it!
If ME could do this remember would ME would understand 'grow'?
As it is know that more of Follything jumping around ME
Rush around kitchen and breakfast room bashing into chairs
Gordon Yell at ME. This is not right - FollyThing bash chairs
ME under OakTable where Gordon too fat to crawl
Lick paws, think Good Things - Oooh!

Today - Now
ME out of Purdah - Gordon say 'injections finished'
Today go for 'walk with SagaFriend
What is walk? Find out soon - SagaFriend knows 'walk'
SagaFriend leaps about and carries GordonWalkStick
Hey! Walk is Good - go bouncing up old track behind garden
Cannot see over stone walls but find gate
Jump two feet in air off all paws and look again
Enormous Piebald Brute on other side of gate - hrrrrooomphing at me!
This Walk Thing only good in parts!

Today - (isn't it always!)
FollyClot frightened of farm pony!
Now walks are for Good Sniff, come along FollyClot, nose down!
Here is a 'remember-scent' - Badger here in nightime
Next 'on-top' 'remember-scent' is Red Deer coming to GrassMunch
Perhaps 'remember' does mean something
Like 'scent-below-last' -
Gordon says this is "conceptual thinking" and SagaBrain is too small
Gordon a bit weak in BrainCell department if he cannot sniff Deer
Perhaps Gordon Brain too small for "SniffThink"
Now this is a really Foul Thing . . . . Oooooh.

Today - Now!
Tail Chop!
me VERY attached to furry end of tail
GordonMate Margaret picks me up - me thinks 'aha, PuppyCuddle'
Scissors flash, me wriggle, SNIP, end of tail fur gone!
This is Not Right.
Clearly time to empty a few wastebins and shred a newspaper or two
Garden needs digging - Digging needs bringing into House
Where is the number for PuuppyLine - ME not vandal
me never tried to cut THEIR fur off!
