Last week I was sent away with my naughtiness of chewing carpets, shoes and other household goods and of course making Red Toes very tired with my night time antics.

On the trip to Grandpa’s he stopped at the dog shop. Grandpa got me some special treats. They came out of a crinkly packet and were white not like normal doggy treats. I had one with my lunch and one later at night.  ‘To be honest they didn’t taste great but hey ho its food.’

After having one of my special treats strange things started to happen. My legs found it difficult to walk in a straightline, my eyelids  became so heavy and I started to yawn. I slept and slept. I slept so much Grandpa had to wake me up in the morning.

I had a wonderful holiday,  walking with Grandma leaving little Benji smells for the dogs of Eydon. I waved my tail at everyone I met “Hello, I’m Benji pleased to meet you.”

I wanted to make sure that I got back to Red Toes and my own house as soon as possible, so I was the best behaved puppy you would ever love to meet.

Two great nights sleep and I was feeling totally calm, relaxed and refreshed, finally Red Toes came. “Hello, I love you, I miss you” I said as I licked all over her face. “Please let me come home” I said. She packed my bag and bed into the car and home we went.

I ran round house checking it for smells, it smelled like…”home.”

The first night I slept like an angel, Red Toes was so happy with me, little did she know that I had finally cracked it. Everything had come together after weeks of practice.

The following night at bed time Red Toes left the kitchen door ajar. I fell asleep myself as I waited for Red Toes to sleep.

When I woke it was very dark, so I moved very quiety to the edge of the kitchen, I ran, then I jumped at the handle and I couldn’t believe it, the door swung open first time. I was free at last. I ran round the living room with Dog in my mouth so we could have a proper adventure. I chased a bit of foil that I found. Then I chewed on a stick. I wandered behind the curtains to see who was in the street, it was empty.

“This is not too much of an adventure Dog, what shall we do?”

“I know lets get Red Toes” I said.

I crept quietly down the stairs towards the bedrooms. Yippee Red Toes’ door was open enough for me to wiggle through. I jumped quietly onto the box that holds jumpers and waited.

Red Toes moved around in a circle to face the other direction. The room was very quiet.  I balanced carefully on the box my paw hovering over the gap. If I land too heavily I will wake Red Toes. I had to get the landing perfect. I waited a minute, I stretched and gently landed on the giant bed.

I curled up in ball on the edge of the bed and slept for a while, when I realised in all the excitement I was finding it difficult to hold it in. I needed to do ‘my business’ there was nothing for it but to wake Red Toes.

“Surprise Red Toes” I said, as I jumped on her chest. “Its me Benji” I wagged.

“How on earth did you get here Benji?” She said

If only puppies could talk, I could tell you all about it.
