Now it may just have escaped the attention of some of my far flung readers that there is a going to be a referendum in Scotland later this year. On the 18th of September, to be precise. The question is:
"Should Scotland be an independent country?"
Well I'm sure you are longing to hear my thoughts.
Gail is warning me not to put my paw in it here. Some neighbours who were previously good friends with each other have already fallen out over this contentious and emotive issue.
Of course, being a terrier, I am by nature attracted to the notion of independence. But then I am remembering Human Granny and Grandad down in England and I don't at all like to think they could become foreigners. And, you know what, we already have different laws about dogs in Scotland anyway (absolutely no tail docking, even of working dogs, for example).
Oh it is all very difficult.
I wonder which bandana suits me best?
And now Gail is saying it's all irrelevant 'cos dogs don't get to decide. Surely that can't be right? I mean I know for a fact that human sixteen year olds will be eligible to vote in the referendum, and I am most definitely more sensible and have better judgement than the average bipedal teenager…
I may return to this important topic in due course …
