It wasn't until my slippers were covered in dog-sick that I realised what he had done. The complete and utter bastard. As I stomped angrily around the kitchen cursing him, he continued chilling in his basket .... snoring a bit, just to rub it in.
Anyway, at that exact same moment, I heard the 'ping' of an email arriving in my inbox. After safely ensconcing all NG's carrot chunks in the bin (whilst gagging the whole time), I headed back to my computer to check it out.
It was from someone called Hannah who worked for Pedigree Chum in the UK (Pedigree Chum is one of, if not the biggest dog food manufacturer in the UK).
To cut a long story short, Hannah had basically found Naughty George on the internet and wondered if he wanted to try some free 'joint care' chews? Feeling a bit distracted by the vom, I replied back that NG would be happy to try her chews ....... and then I promptly forgot about the whole episode until today.
A big parcel was delivered to my house ..........................
Pic.No.1 A bloody great DHL parcel was delivered to my house, and I had NO idea what it was
Pic.No.2 I opened it and there was a large yellow rucksack inside. On the front of the rucksack, it said 'Pedigree Chum - Play'. Ahh, mystery solved. It was the present from Naughty George's fan-club
Pic.No.3 Inside there were two packets of 'Joint Care' because Naughty George struggles with his mobility. Actually, I can't back that up. Even though he is 16/17 years old, he is faster than a streak of piss. But maybe I could feed them to him in a preventative way? (saves on dog food)
Pic.No.4 Next up - four heavy duty chew/tennis balls complete with a thrower thing. I know for a fact that if I tried to throw one of them for NG, he would look at me with disdain and walk in the opposite direction. He's never been very co-operative when it comes to enjoying himself
Pic.No.5 But the shocker in the pack was this - a bloody HD Video Camera. Now we're talking! Bring it on Pedigree Chum! This was WAY more interesting than my mutt's joints
Pic.No. 6 The HD Camera came with a battery and a 4GB memory card ..... sweet. Owning a dog thing actually does bring it's rewards
Pic.No.7 I was so happy to get the HD camera, that I tentatively lobbed a 'joint care chew' in NG's general direction. And I was pleasantly surprised to see that he was more than happy to scoff it. I wholly expect to wake up tomorrow morning to find him in the lotus position
It wasn't just puking over the kitchen floor that dis-enamoured me with NG today.
Nope, the git got up to other shenanigans. It continued innocuously enough - I let him out for a run in the garden, when suddenly all hell let loose. Naughty George had caught a rat and was in the process of killing it by ragging it to death ............ at the exact same time that Izzy and her two mates had dressed up as fairy princesses and were looking for their princes ....... in the garden.
They all screamed madly at the dead rat, before curiosity overtook them.
Pic.No.8 The dead rat. There were flies on it within minutes .... how do the flies cotton on so quickly?
And in an abrupt u-turn, they all decided that they wanted to examine the dead rat at close quarters ....... so they had a good look at it, pushing it this way and that to get a good view. Kids are minging.
Pic.No.9 Naughty George pulls a comedy expression
Meanwhile, Naughty George licked his lips, oblivious to the fuss he had caused. He's got a lot to answer for that dog ....... but at least he has good joints.
So what do you have planned for the weekend then?
