Last Summer , Grizelda the Great Dane sniffed me out.  She started arriving at my house and would bark until I went out to see her.  She said she was bored at home and was taking herself for walks on her own. I told her she shouldn’t be going on the roads alone and she should stick to the fields, but all she really needed was somebody to talk to and she had come to the right place.

Talking through Grizelda’s problems

Grizelda’s humans were clearly not spending enough time with her, so I suggested that she spoke them and tell them she was was lonely. Grizelda wondered if she could move in with us, but I told her firmly, but kindly that we should keep our relationship on a professional level.  I knew what Tessa would say, which would not be printable here and from a selfish point of view, I am not sure I want to share my family with anybody else.

6 months on and I am pleased to report that Grizelda came to visit me today with her new family member, Chi Chi the Chihuahua who she adores and the good news is that, apart from Grizelda having chosen such an adorable little friend, their humans will be spending much more time with them both.
