|This is not Georgia|
Crates are actually cages – but we call them crates because it sounds not quite as bad.
Of course there was never any doubt. Cate wanted her on sight – and so did I – having resigned myself to the inevitable.
She arrives tonite. The family is bringing her over to make sure they like her new home. I have bought gates (with cat doors) so we can keep her downstairs – except at nite when she will sleep in the bedroom.
I have bought a large dog crate and the family is bringing her bed over to put in this.
On the weekend we went to Petco and bought masses of dog things – including a book about Labradors. I am reading this now. It is astonishing the number of things that can go wrong with a Labrador and I think we will have to move closer to the vet.
We also bought a large dog bed. We put this downstairs and the cats immediately moved in.
In the meantime Cate was walking on Sunday and was attacked by a gaggle of geese. This was a minor setback in her preparations for Ecuador. I have checked – there are geese in Ecuador so she may need to take a cricket bat.
I have many more things to report. Tomorrow there will be the first in an endless series of photos of Georgia. I do not have a photo yet so have posted another Labrador which looks like her.
