The dogs are adjusting well to the new life with an extra person in the house. I think they are enjoying it except, with the time constraints, they dont get walked as much.
Clyde is funny – every time Wilson cries, he frowns.

Clyde- Hey Bon, mum must be home today, it’s light outside and she hasn’t opened the door yet.
Bon- She must be having a sickie or on Annual Leave again, “Where’s our breakfast?”
Clyde-Open the door mum, I can hear you in there, I’ll scratch the backdoor, that always gets her moving.
Bon-Here she comes, why doesn’t she take us to the park anymore, lazy bitch.
Clyde- I might chew something up, that should work, here’s a pen the ground, I wonder how long it will take her to notice, “Clyde give me that”, shit that was quick, 2 minutes, she’s on the ball today Bon.
Bon- Have you noticed how fat mums getting?
