I am trying to drink a cup of tea but as my mouth is frozen it is proving to be a bit tricky. I have just spent an hour sitting in the dentist chair with my mouth wide open while Mr Smiley rebuilt my tooth. He is very meticulous and I now have a brand new shiny tooth but it’s very hard to keep your mouth open for that long.
The surgery has a collage of autumn leaves pasted on the ceiling that you can gaze at as you stretch out underneath the drill. It’s been there for years and I’m really bored with that scene now. A whole hour looking at autumn leaves.
Rick gave me a very enthusiastic welcome when I got home. He has started his intermediate level of training at dog school and is star of the class. Unfortunately he still likes to lunge randomly at pedestrians while we are out walking which is a bit disconcerting. He is always friendly with other dogs and their walkers but occasionally takes a dislike to someone. I have a theory that if I greet someone like a friend he is fine so now I plan to give a cheery “hello, how are you?” to everyone I meet. It’s worth a try isn’t it?
