The Amusing and yet also Annoying Incidents of Doc

It’s happened twice already.

The first time it happened, I actually chuckled and was more amused than annoyed.  What a smart dog, I even said to myself.

I reprimanded him and of course, he looked guilty and knew absolutely why I told him off.

The second time it happened.

I was not amused.

I was irritated – cross even.

Doc had peed in the bathroom again.

Since it is late autumn, the door to the garden is always shut.

I do let him out every now and then and of course, we go out for his daily jaunts around the headland.

But lately he’s been having these little accidents, not every day, but it’s happened twice already.

I ought to be pleased that he seems to understand that peeing in the bathroom is what is done, though of course we do it in the toilet, he does it on the floor.

And him being a dog, pees exactly in the same spot.

Now overtime I hear his little steps up the stairs, I call after him and remind him not to pee in the bathroom.  He hasn’t done it since.

Does your pet pee in the bathroom too?


A Crime Scene

I didn’t mean for it to happen.

T’s mum was busy preparing dinner, when she left my little human’s half-eaten cake on the kitchen table.

I’ve never tasted chocolate cake before, I heard chocolate is supposed to be bad for us, dogs.  But it looked really delicious.  So brown, I like brown.  So gooey, I like gooey.

The temptation was just so great, I couldn’t resist it.

When my little human’s mum left the kitchen, before I could even realise what I was doing, it was over.  

The deed was done.

I’m not really sure how it happened.  Everything is a blur to me now.  Somehow I managed to swoop up little T’s plastic blue plate from the kitchen top and wolfed down the chocolate cake.  It was so delicious, I even licked the plate clean.  Surely, without the evidence of the cake on it, the humans won’t know.



And then she came back …

She asked me,

Did you eat the cake Doc?

Did you do this?  She said, pointing to little T’s plate on the floor.

I knew I should’ve put the plate back on the kitchen top.

But how and like I said,

everything happened in a flash.


I stayed on my bed, under the table, willing myself to be invisible.

When that failed,

I gave her this look instead:

I think it worked.

I know I’m in trouble,

but the cake was yum!

I promise I’ll TRY not to do it again …. 

Please tell me I’m not the only naughty dog around and that yours have also done this too?

Oops, I did it again (A Love Story)

I knew something was up when they locked me in the kitchen.  I could hear laughter and excitement in the living room and waited patiently till I could come in and join them.

And when I was allowed in the room, I saw the most beautiful sight I have ever seen in the whole of my doggy life.  I think this is what humans would call love at first sight…

 I tried to be cool, nonchalant even.  I didn’t want them to know how I felt.  But my heart was pounding so hard every time I passed it and breathed in its lovely pine-tree smell.  

So I wanted to do something special, or wear something “nice” that would impress that beautiful sight.  I remembered my little human kindly gave me one of her wooly hats that had a hole in it.  So I put it on, but I think I tugged on it too hard and my head went through it.  

“Oh no!”  I ruined it and struggled to get the blimming thing off my head till I heard my humans say – “Look, Doc has is wearing a winter scarf.  How lovely!”

And so I was pleased with myself and thought, this will have to do.  Surely, the lovely tree will be impressed. Now all I had to do was wait for that golden opportunity when I was alone with my beloved.

Then it happened, my human and her mum were having lunch in the kitchen.  I crept silently in the room and admired her from afar.  And when I gathered the courage to come up close to her to declare my undying love and devotion … I got distracted by the many different lovely looking things hanging all over the love of my life.  Her accessories were enchanting!

“Well hello, there”  I began … but got distracted again by the different colours and before I knew what I was doing, my mouth opened and I ate one.

It was crunchy.


Crunch, crunch, crunch.

And before I could stop myself, I grabbed another one from the tree.

It was crunchy.


crunch, crunch, crunch.

And before I could get another one in my mouth I heard a very loud and cross voice – Doc!!!  It was my human’s mum and before I could even apologise to my sweetheart, I was banished from the living room.

I’m heartbroken.

They won’t let me near my love anymore.

I don’t think I’m going to have a Merry Christmas after all.


Do you think my darling will forgive me for eating one of her accessories?

Why Can’t I?

Woof, woof, woof?

“Where are we going”?

Doc asks Little T as she puts on her silly wooly hat.

“We are going to the beach!”says T.


Yay!  Barks Doc.

Woof, woof, woof, woof!

But this isn’t our beach!  Doc says looking around.

“Oh Doc, this is another beach called Trebarwith Strand!”  Explains little T.

Woof, woof, woof, woof!

Why can’t we go to our beach?  Says Doc whinging.

“Because it’s nice to go to different places! And it’s beautiful here!” Says little T raising her hands dramatically.


Yes!  Doc gives an excited little bark but stops and looks at little T’s parents.

“Woof, woof, woof?”

“But why do they have to be with us?”

“Oh Doc”, little T sighs , “because I’m only three, and not a grown-up yet”.

Woof, woof, woof, woof!

But it’s so much fun when it’s just you and me!

“I know” little T agrees, but we also have fun with my mum and Dada too!”

Woof, woof, woof, woof, woof!

“Yes, but your Dad grumble, grumbles!”

“Oh that’s just my Dada.  He likes to grumble, grumble, all Dads are like that”

Woof, woof, woof!

“C’mon, let’s go exploring!”

“Wait, I have to jump in muddy puddles first!”  Says little T enjoying her lovely puddles.



Woof, woof, woof!

“This is lovely! So much new smells!”

Woof, woof, woof, woof!

“Don’t just sit there!  Let’s go and explore more!”

“I’m tired from jumping on all those muddy puddles.  I want to rest now”  Says little T sitting on a bench.

Woof, woof, woof!

But, but, but, I want to explore NOW!  Whinges Doc.

“You will just have to wait” Little T says firmly.



Woof, woof, woof!

“Can we go down there please?”

“No.  We can’t it’s high tide!”


Boo says Doc slumping down beside Little T.

Woof, wood, woof?

Can I have some of that too?

“Oh Doc, this isn’t for puppies!”

Woof, woof, woof!

“It’s not fair!”

“Mum says life isn’t fair.  So there you go!”  Says T.

Woof, woof, woof!

“Can I have some?”  Doc says wagging his tail.

“No.  This isn’t for puppies either”.

Woof, woof, woof!

Now you are just being silly!

“Like this?”

Little T pulls her silly face at him.

Doc turns his back on her.

Woof, woof, woof.

“I want to go home now”

“In awhile, you’ll just have to wait”  Little T says in a grown-ups voice.

Woof, woof, woof!

“It’s not fun anymore!”

“Tough” says T.
