I want that one!

We have a new member of the household! On Friday we welcomed Molly to the Wolery, she’s a 12 year old Yorkshire terrier, bless her it shows. The first problem this poor little lady has is that her right eye is completely covered with a cataract; this means that she has no sight in that eye. Her left eye was injured at some point in her long life, so she’s blind in that one too. She’s also diabetic and has to have insulin shots every 12 hours. Finally, she has something called Cushing’s disease, and no. I don’t know what it is. What I do know is that she has to have a pill for it every morning at 7. So this means that she’s going to be hard work, but I’m sure we’ll manage. The biggest concern is DTWP, he’s so used to being the only pet in the house, he may take some time getting used to her being around. We do have an understanding that if DTWP hasn’t settled with her after a week or so then Molly will have to be returned to her previous foster care. It will be a shame as the poor old lass has been shunted from pillar to post recently. What with her being a bit tatty, there’s major hair loss on her hind quarters, and the eye’s are a bit off putting. But she has a strong character and something about her which does make her quite loveable. I’m certain that with a little time the two mutts will grow use to each other and there won’t be any issues, they just need to find a common ground. Doogs will, no doubt, assert himself as the alpha again and Molly, being an older dog, will let him think that’s how it is. Every so often she’ll remind him that he is a youngster and needs snapping down a bit.

Work has been absolutely bonkers this week, not so much the guys, more the actual work side of things. It has seemed that no sooner have I finished a task and achieved a goal, I get another one. So although I’ve got an awful lot done this last week, because there’s been so much to do I don’t feel as though I’ve done anything.

The shop has been good this last couple of weeks, regular readers can keep up to date, well sort of, by visiting the Hythe tyrant blog. We’ve had two sessions for older players and the dad’s of the lads that come. The first was a bit of a letdown, the second was a roaring success. I had six players turn up, not including me. I’ve set another session for the 16th of May, and I can’t wait. I have also solved the problem with my gaming table. Two pasting tables are in the offing, they’re £9.99 each as opposed to four A type legs which would set me back about £50. So now all I need to do is get to work on the blooming buildings.

That’s about it for now, more as and when something exciting happens.

I don't think we have any worries about the dogleta do we babe. By the way have you managed to get any moose repellent yet ?
