The Hermit Dog!

Recently, our strange dog Ronnie has been hogging a lot of the limelight in this blog, so now it’s Daisy’s turn to steal some space in the For Dogs blog!

Daisy is a ten year old full pedigree Yorkshire Terrier (I might have mentioned this before) and is still as lively as ever – except in the mornings. Lately she has taken to hiding when I get up early and want to walk the two of them before breakfast while it’s nice and cool. Ronnie is his usual crazy self and can’t wait to get his lead on and get out the front door. But Daisy?

Nowhere to be seen!

I’ve caught her some mornings hiding in one of the many doggy beds dotted about the house, so I try to gee her up with the usual enthusiastic “Who wants to go for a walk?” routine, but it’s plain from the look she gives me that her answer is “Not me, mate!”

She even slinks off in a mood and goes outside through the cat flap and into her little dog house to escape an early jaunt round the deserted streets. I sometimes wonder who is the strangest of the two of them?

If I leave it for a couple of hours until the sun is well and truly up and life has returned to the streets, she’ll quite happily come for a trot around the block with Ronnie and me, so there’s nothing wrong with her physically – she really is a moody character in the early morning!

I bet if she was a person, she wouldn’t tolerate a nine to five job!
