Sympathy vote




Oh dear! Bessie has hurt her paw in an incident involving a skateboard (don't ask!) and has had to visit the vet where she had a claw removed, bled profusely, had painkiller injected and showed her appreciation by trying to bite the vet. She has spent the day as looking sad and dejected as a man with the flu, only cheering up enough to wolf down her favourite chicken and rice supper before retiring to the sofa with her "woe is me face" to lap up more sympathy...

  1. Silly Bessie. Skate-boarding is not an activity for a woman. Can't she just play girl's hockey or just skip with a rope? I offer prayers to Our Lady of All Canines for her recovery.

  2. I'm very sorry for Bessie and am proud that she was able to bear her injury with the same fortitude, humour, grace, dignity and complete lack of self-pity that I have always observed that men display when they have the 'flu! I was good of you to draw attention to this manly example.

  3. So Bessie has given up skateboarding for rallying! Gosh she does lead an exciting life! Hope she's feeling better soon.
