Well, I’ve settled in well here and I’m enjoying myself. I’ve been pushing boundaries and am gradually learning what is acceptable in this house. Yapping and barking and pulling at the bottom of Máire’s jeans and skirts get me nowhere. Máire and the Boss ignore me when I do this. They’re very nice to me when I explore the back garden, when I sit down, when I go to bed, when I play with my squeaky rabbit toy. I’ve tried to quieten that dreadful squeak, but all my efforts have come to naught.
Tonight the Boss relaxed and loosened his shoe laces. I thought I might dare to play with them but I’m not sure if I should. I just looked up at him, and he was nodding off …. I wonder should I try to pull the laces just a little??
