Walkies. Snacks. Vet.

"Where are we off to today, Dad ?"
We're off to the vet for Monty's Pentosan injection.

First stop is Loafa Bread for a coffee and a snack. Who wants some pastry ?
"Yum. Me please."
"Me too Dad some pastry too please."

Then to the vet. Are you ready, Monty ?

"I'm ready, Dad... As long as I get a liver treat from the nurse. "

It's empty

What's up Monty ? You look worried.
"Dad, it's empty. My bowl is empty."

Yes, that's because you've just had your supper.
"But I'm starving."
Are you really ? Poor thing. And it's such a long time until breakfast.

Come on Monty, don't stop there. We've only just started walking.
"But Dad, it's 5.30 and that means it's supper time."

"But Dad I'm starving, and I'm sure my supper is ready."

Monty ! I'll feed you when we get back. Now walk !
"No no no. We MUST turn back now before I collapse from hunger."
