Formally known as Badger Boo's Daft Adventures - Now about my two crazy Cocker Spaniels Boris and Eko, as well as the ups and downs of life as a caregiver to both my parents who have Dementia. Nothing in life prepares you to become the parent to your parents, I'm just muddling through as best I can
Once upon a time I was a cute puppy with no name. I had a mummy that looked like me, and 7 brothers and sisters, some were Blue Roan and some were Orange Roan...
We lived a happy care free life, playing rough and tumble, meeting these strange things called hoomans who came to pick us up for cuddles and make strange cooing noises.
I used to love meeting these hoomans, until one day a lady and man came to see us all and I fell in love with the lady. But she didn't notice me, she kept looking at and cuddling my orange brothers.
Little Me at 9 weeks old
I had to work really hard pulling on her trousers to get her to notice me!
It worked she picked me up, I was so pleased. She then turned me on my back and I just lay there grinning at her, she looked at my teeth which I wasn't keen on, but I let her see my pearly whites. She then put me on the floor, I thought I had missed my chance for more cuddles, but no, she ran her hands all over me, looked in my ears and ruffled my fur up, when I was sitting nice and calmly, she made a massive bang with her hands, I had seen it frighten my brother so I sat stock still being brave. I wanted to do everything right, cos I really liked her.
Next thing I knew I was being carried away from my milk mummy out into the big wide world!
It was scary I'd never been on my own before, we went in a box on wheels and I dribbled a lot, but luckily it wasn't for too long.
When I was carried into the ladies house I go the fright of my life.
Looking at me was the worlds biggest dog I had ever seen, she looked very strange to my young eyes as she only had only 3 legs!
My GIANT new mummy "Meegan"
She sniffed me gently and told me not to worry, she was my new teacher mummy. I wasn't too sure about her, cos when she licked my face, her tongue wrapped round my head and I thought I was going to suffocate!
When I was put on the floor, I looked up and up at her, it made me feel dizzy she was so huge. But my milk mummy had taught me to have nice manners, so I felt I could trust this big giant dog when she started to play bow and wanted me to play, suddenly she galloped off round the room scaring me, so I dashed off and took cover under the big long chair the hoomans was sitting on in case I got squashed...
