The Adventures of Nancy with cats

Hi there again.

I am Nancy – the dog with Attitude.


I hate cats. I have yet to meet a cat I didn’t hate. Why – only this afternoon the neighbour’s cat went slinking past the lounge room window as if he owned the place. Oh, it makes me so mad – if only I could get at him I’d show him who is boss of this place.

Last year I was staying at Grandpa Trevor’s place. I like wandering around the garden. Well, one afternoon I was minding my own business sitting in the sun. When I say “minding my own business” I mean I was busy supervising Grandma Corinne in her native plant nursery. Sometimes she needs a little help.

Without warning and with never an “excuse me” or a “may I please come over” that Ginger from over the next door’s fence comes parading through the nursery. I mean, the cheek of him. Who does he think he is?

I showed him who is boss around here. It only took a few well chosen barks and a little snapping at the tail and he was up a tree in seconds. Didn’t think the old fellow still had it in him! There was a nice patch of sunlight at the base of the tree, so I sat down there to continue my nap work in the sun. Poor Ginger must have thought he was going to spend the night up that tree.

Just to show that I don’t hold a grudge I went inside for the evening. I am sure Ginger has learned his lesson: don’t mess with THIS dog.

Talk to you again soon.

    I like this photo of my wee doggy! Quite the pose. I’m afraid Nancy is a bit of a pudding-dog at the moment. She should be doing a little less supervising and a little more actual work I think!

    I must print out a few photos for you sometime – after our trip away.

  3. A real lady,which you obviously are Nancy, doesn’t have to say a lot to get her point across.

    I’m sure Ginger will think twice before crossing your path again. I’m no big fan of cats myself so keep up the good work!

    I may LOOK like a lady, I may SOUND like a lady, I may even ACT like a lady, but bring a cat into my view and out the window goes any lady-like qualities. WOOF! WOOF!
