Dasco's Diary No.2

Settling In Nicely
(Click here to listen to Dasco's Diary)

So this is my new home. It's quite nice. A million times better than those dreadful kennels anyway.

My mat is still in the corner I don't like. I'll really have to change that.

I have two bowls on a little stand which stops me from getting a sore neck. Nice touch from Master Sab there. I've never had bowls on a stand before.

One bowl is for food and the other is for water. I like water but I don't always like the food they give me. Sometimes I don't think it's even fit for... a dog, if you'll pardon the expression. 'Croquettes', I ask you. What ever happened to good old meat, hot off the hoof, that's what I want to know.

And still no bone. Doesn't Master Sab understand I'm a dog and dogs like, nay, adore bones? Boy oh boy, you can tell I'm his first fluffy chum, can't you?

Sometimes he puts my bowls inside the house and sometimes outside. It's a bit of a pain but I suppose I'll just have to get used to his human foibles.

We go for a walk two or three times a day, but usually two. It's very hot at the moment so I don't mind staying inside too much where it's cool.

So I'm settling in OK. Thanks for reading and good luck with your English!

See you next time...

Your four-legged friend,
Dasco (Woof!)
