I think I’m turning into a bit of a softie. Now, some people may find this a bit strange, but, here goes . . .
Our Cocker Spaniel’s name was actually written on my Christmas present list.
I know, I’m not alone, as millions of people include their pets in the Christmas festivities. Pets have now been elevated to family member status. Now when did this all happen?
To be honest with you, I’m convinced that the reason for this is that they are more appreciative, less argumentative, more loyal, less moody, love unconditionally and don’t pout for weeks on end like their human counterparts.
If I accidentally locked my partner and my Spaniel in the boot of the car, there would only be one who would genuinely pleased to see me when I opened it.
Pet lovers are all around us and the sale of pet toys and goodies have rocketed in the past five years. Pet clothes? Diamante collars? I’m not too sure, but yes, people are buying these, too.
My spaniel, however, prefers a onesie. Who’d have thought?
