Before you ask, YES the bloody laptop is fine! It landed on something soft. It landed, in fact, at about lunchtime, and the toe still hurts! Stupid toe.
This afternoon, I did a homecheck for a Dog Rescue Myth - the active retired couple with no kids, no pets, home a lot, real dog lovers with a fully enclosed garden, who live in the country with their own land. Every other dog owner who wants to hand a dog in seems to believe that we have an ample supply of these paragons, and I think this is the first time I have ever actually met them. They seem to be real after all, though I do wish there were a lot more of them.
Oh, also, on the topic of dog rescue? Cesar Milan. Just NO. I am SICK of dogs bouncing from homes that think they know about dog behaviour because they watched a couple of shows with that self-dramatising little wanker and decide to throw dogs on their backs or diagnose them with aggression that frankly, they have not got.
Happy New Year all. I hope the rest of 2012 will be less painful. Now I shall limp slowly and melodramatically away to have a bath.
