Dark, f, 2 WLTM....

are you good at picking up squishy items in plastic bags? do you simply adore leaving the house, walking for up any length of time up to an hour only to arrive back at exactly the same house? would you enjoy throwing oddly shaped rubber objects for me to run after and then lose interest in half way to finding them so that you have to pick them up yourself? like the sound of trying to somehow prevent me from rubbing my entire body head to toe in the smelliest thing I can find in the local park? perhaps you have an item of cloth that needs to be fashionably distressed with the authentic application of teeth, hair and muck that only a half terrior can manage really well?

She's trying the more direct approach, and who could blame her after the tumbleweed that ensued from last week's heartfelt appeal... Leave a comment if you would bring this lovely creature on a W.A.L.K. (can't say the word straight cos she'll only recognise it)

In other news - I will be reading poems out at the Dun Laoghaire Festival of World Cultures on the Glór stage - Royal Marine hotel garden stage at 12.30. Hope to see you there.... further details here

Don't forget this week's poetry bus prompt, it's here if you missed it...

The nose through cloth bit is a classic. And I know you're a bit hacked with all the dog-ownership stuff, but why did you cut her ear off?
Brill on the reading.

She can talk! That's AMAZING! You never said she could talk! Ok it sounds a bit like 2 blokes on a radio, but still.

And the poetry thing 12.30? I thought it was 1 to 1.50 pm?

I would LOVE to go to Ireland & walk your dog! There's a small matter of the air fare & time off from work :)

Thanks Titus, she cut her own off in a fit of tragic artistry.
Yes TFE, our dog is v special. she specialises in newsreader impersonations. The reading thing says 12.30 - 2.00 on facebook.. get there early just in case!
Bug, obviously we'd cover the expenses - if we could, but we can't, thanks anyway!! she'll be happy you cared

Congrats on the reading! Don't forget to take note of your own tips :) Would love to walk your dog, but suspect I live at the other end of the country (phew)

Tks PF, will try, am actually rather terrified - there's going to be a rapper, as well as the very cool Stephen James, and the fantastic Raven on the bill... I'm such a nerd in comparison!!
