And things are going well for house-mate Ripley.
Yeah, that’s enough of that, but I do hope you were reading it in a suitable accent, that being the Geordie one. Anyway, Ripley has been with us now for 4 full days and she is settling in well. On Friday we went to the vets and she got her first round of vaccinations so she spent the afternoon and evening recovering and was then up bright and early that night to let us know the effects had worn off.

What Dogs See, Smell, and Know
Like the author I am a dog person, I like cats too, don’t get me wrong. Actually I like all animals, but there is nothing quite like having a dog about the place. And any pet-owner likes to know that they are doing their best for their dog, and most love to know what is going on in their heads. So I really enjoyed reading this book. The author is a scientist; she teaches psychology and has worked with many animals, including dogs. But this is not a science-book per se. It is easy to understand, and easy to read. But it has the science behind it, as well as plenty of anecdotes. Which, I know, aren’t scientific, but it still makes for a good read.
