As anyone can see from my blog header, my rightful place is on Gail's lap. This is especially so when she is relaxing in the study on her pre-historic (and very comfortable) reclining chair.
Apparently not all guests understand this.
My wee poodle neighbour Ella came to visit on Saturday afternoon. I sensed from the off that she had her eyes on the prize.
I wasn't too happy when she edged herself closer to the launch position but, being the perfect gent, I stood aside.
I pretended I didn't care (although Gail says my tail angle tells another story).
Before you could say "cheeky wee poodle" she was up there on Gail's knee, looking ever so slightly smug.
Sometimes a chap has to recognise that girls rule!
Later, when Ella pulled the same stunt a second time, I made sure she understood I had better things to do...
