A non-dog friend came over last night and of course wanted to see the puppies.
She stood at the door and looked in at mum and pups and said, "bitch"
"yep" I said, "the dog is outside, he has no interest in his puppies and she wouldn't want him in here even if he did".
"no, I mean look at her, she gave birth to all those puppies and she has her figure back already, I pushed out one 6 months ago and I'm still struggling".
Next my friend announced she wouldn't mind having her diet monitored, taken for small daily walks, be given a room of her own with privacy, the blankets changed daily, meals brought to her room etc etc. Her husband overheard and said, well I suggest you ask M&C if she's got any more spare rooms.
