Dog Wish 1
Nothing. Not a sausage.
I scoured the rolling media channels, in vain, for news of a Super-tanker running aground in the Leafy Suburb lido to explain the delay. Leaving me with the conclusion that Kay wasn’t taking her job too seriously. Either that or she was chained to her desk compiling important government statistics. Time to take matters into my own hands. No more Mr Nice Guy.
I hatch a plan and gather the essential kit together:-
One (1) bucket of cold water conveniently sited for ardour dampening.
One (1) very bright torch to assist with aim.
One (1) sun lounger positioned inside the patio doors.
One (1) Andy McNab novel for motivation.
One (1) fearless guard dog for general fearlessness and keen hearing.
One (1) rubber ball for motivation.
With Mrs Brian safely tucked up in bed out of harms way. I settle down on ‘stag’ (cheers Andy).
Hmmm…. What’s he up to now? He’s got my ball so it must be a new game he’s thought up.
Damn! Forgot the briefing.
Wahey!! Rubber ball time!
“Right, tonight’s intention is to catch some hardened environmentalists in the act.”
Look boss, I’ve told you before; I’m a dog which means I understand words of one syllable. The rest might just as well be Greek. Just get on with it and dish out the goodies.
“You’re well aware of the information that has got us to this stage. I’m willing to forgive you if you get this bit right.”
No ball yet? Maybe if I look really cute.
“I want you to report any sightings and then we’ll rush them. You’ll be in the lead. Do your really scary look. I’ll deliver the good news (cheers again Andy) and then you cover my tactical withdrawal. Okay?”
Perhaps if I just chased my tail for a bit? He always laughs at that.
“You’ll be pleased to hear we won’t be doing any writing for this but, it is a potentially risky operation. So, I need you to cover me. Can I rely on you?”
Whoa…! Dizzy now. I need a lie down. He obviously isn’t giving the ball up that easily. If I play dead I could at least get a tummy rub out of this.
“Make sure you listen out for my commands and we’ll be alright.”
Well, I’ve tried everything and you’re obviously not paying attention. So I’m going to lick my bits until you come to your senses.
“I’ve considered their human rights and we should be safe as we’re protecting our morals.”
Yeah, yeah; whatever. Can’t you see I’m not interested?
Listen up pal: If you get any closer I’m gonna lick your face.
With the team pumped up and ready for action.
I settle down to learn some more from the master.
