Fidget Is My Name
(Hermanus, Western Cape, South Africa)
With My Brother Chucky Before I Didn't Like Him
This is Fidget, one of two cocker spaniels in our family, but one of three dogs - we also have a chocolate lab. Fidget is turning ten this year.
Fidget is often misunderstood.
By looking at this incredibly cute boy, you would never believe that he is anti-social and one day woke up and took a disliking to his older brother Chucky.
It got so bad we now have a fence splitting our garden in two :( (Terrible fights and vet appointments, doggy psychiatrists, the works!)
To us, he is the most affectionate little boy you could ever meet, but give him a chance and don't sneak up on him, or be older than 16, and he will shower you with love, nervously at first.
People walking past our house,
Anybody in an overall,
Having his nails clipped!
His Mom and Dad, and getting to sleep in the king-size bed with them at night,
His walks on the farm,
Picking up gifts to bring to people when they visit,
Eating raw chicken necks,
Being stroked under his chin (Favourite spot),
Milo! (He can smell it miles away. When we make a cup of milo for ourselves, we always leave him a little sip).
Fidget would give up his life for his parents if he needed to, and I would do the same! x
