Otto loves the car, he's happy to get in at any given opportunity, even when I don't want him to get in, there he is as soon as my back is turned. Today I was trying to load the car for a Jewellery Party this evening when he got in uninvited and utterly refused to vacate. He wouldn't even look me in the eye. It took a while! Yesterday I had a bit of shopping to do in Harleston & had in-laws to visit. Dick was away and Otto would always rather come with me in the car than stay at home alone. So off we went, back windows slightly open as he likes the breeze. All went well, I restocked Home Comforts with jewellery and visited the family, no problem at all. If I leave him in the car he just sits and waits or goes to sleep. The time came for the shopping part of the expedition, the new Co-Op posed a problem, it's obviously too popular and it was Market Day too, so nowhere to park. I drove round once with no problem, went round again and still no space, by this time Otto was getting fractious and was starting to moan quietly, by the time I went round for the third time he was howling really loudly! Otto is a big dog with a big voice and sounded a bit like a rabid wolf, I decided to go home without the groceries.
My busy time of year is upon me now, but I'm still having time to make new stock, in fact there's quite a lot of new stuff on the site this week, have a look on this new items link.
