Lassie come home
Bet you sang that bit!
Ruby could be left on her own, but not Daisy. As you may recall, Daisy is the one who had to be put on Valium for a while as she was experiencing a phantom pregnancy.
Not the type of creature you would trust on her own for any length of time.
Hence the reason why Daisy is always put into the kennels to be looked after while her Mam and Dad are away!
It was left to Emma to bring Daisy and get her settled in her foster home.
Now everyone takes Daisy to be a bit of a canine bimbo with not a lot of brain power. Well she obviously has more that we give her credit for!
When she rounded the corner and saw the kennels, she stood rooted to the spot. Then she wriggled and squirmed until she got her head out of her collar. She took off like the hammers of hell! All Emma could see was a blur in the distance.
Now I'd like to be able to blog about the fantastic Lassie-esque adventures she encountered on her way home. Acts of heroism like saving a drowning child from a fast flowing river or pulling another unfortunate child up the side of a jagged cliff are way beyond Daisy's capabilities.
Also the fact that the kennels are just 300 metres down the road from her house limited the possibility of anything exciting happening to her on the " long trek" home.
When Emma and Jenny ( Ms. Kennel Woman) arrived back breathlessly to the house, Daisy was nowhere to be seen. They called and called but no answer. They eventually found her looking very forlorn in the conservatory....
with Captain Plum and a dagger!
Her pleading eyes seemed to say
"You can't seriously be making me go back there".
