Arik blog strange outing

Here is my first blog post to share with you.

Dear Cherry,

Guess where Mummy took me today. The Vets! Yes, you did read that right. The VETS! I was horrified! I'm not even sick!

Turns out Mummy just wanted to weigh me. That didn't stop me from being so nervous that my legs were shaking like jelly though. I stood on the scales like a good boy, but it seemed to take ages. I was shaking so much that the numbers were jumping around all over the place. They did finally settle on a number though - 28.1kg. I've put on weight! Mummy was really pleased with me but she still wants me to put on more so that I am around 29.5kg, so on the way back from the vets we stopped at Pets at Home where she bought me lots of treats.

The weather here is pretty awful. It's cold and wet. It is June isn't it? Feels more like November. Mummy and I did try going for a walk along Ventnor Downs, but it was so cold I needed my fleecy coat! In June! We made the best of it for a few minutes, then is started to rain. I mean really, really rain! Mummy's hair got so wet she looked like she'd just got out the shower. We ran back to the car and decided to come home.

Once we were home, Mummy got all my treats out of her shopping bag. My favourite new treat is my Deer Antler. I've never had one before, and I didn't really know what to do with it at first. I stared at it on the floor for a little while, trying to work out how to tackle it. I've got the hang of it now though and it's delicious! She also bought me one of those Bull Horn things, but that's still in the cupboard. No doubt Mummy will bring that out when I've finished obsessing over my antler.

Well I'd better go and have my dinner now.

Who Am I?

Born and raised in Guernsey, Channel Islands, my first job when I left school was a Veterinary Nurse. However after 5 years of unsociable hours and being on emergency call, I moved into office work.

I was a Legal Secretary for the most part, but also enjoyed being a PA to the Chief Officer and Minister for Health & Social Services. I now live on the Isle of Wight where I work in a supermarket.

From early childhood I have always had pets. Over the years have been blessed to love two budgerigars, a hamster, a rabbit and eight cats (not all at once). Arik is my first dog and the bond we have is stronger than anything I have ever known.
