HANDIEST ITEM AROUND CAMP 2006
I do think our
"CT" would have to be the handiest thing around at the minute.
For those of
you who don't know "CT", let me introduce him.
He came into
our family as a gift from our good friends Keith, Jenny and David for my
birthday last year. He is named "CT" for Camper trailer trained.
For a start he
does not poo or wee, needs very little feeding, however, he does like
his head patted if anyone walks by.
He is rather a
sweet gentle little fellow. However, he has been know to nip at the
heels of those who come too close and is also known to bark if not
spoken to rather sternly by his master or mistress, and, he will respond
to others who tell him to shush. He is a very obedient
He does have
certain duties to perform when camping.
As we all know
it is important to share jobs when on the track, (no one gets a free
ride) so he's main duty is to guard "Lilly" our Ultimate, he does this
with gusto, so much so that he really must be chained up, dear little
fellow does not seem to mind at all. Of course this chaining up is to
comply with some camp ground rules.
We do leave him with
some refreshments. However, I am really concerned for once we left him
with a green bottle of water (well I THINK it was water, would never
leave wine would we?) and off we went for a drive (it was rather a hot
day), when we returned the bottle was not only empty but had been sucked
flat. Can't figure how he managed that one!
We have discovered a
by-the-way of "CT", he tries really hard to keep those bloody bottle
dumpers away from "Lilly", and for a while he really did a fantastic
job. Unfortunately for "CT" the "BBD" got smart, they now sneak up
behind him and silently PLACE the bottles, no more chucking them. I
fear this has slightly tarnished his image.
He has a great sense
of humour and does love to share a joke with whom ever. His little head
shakes, his little tail wags and his beady little eyes fairly sparkle
He is just such a
friendly little guy, even magpies love him. The odd cat and dog have
been know to approach with caution.
I think he does
deserve the title "Handiest thing for the Camp". He gives so much
pleasure to so many, asking so little in return, and he has spawned a
whole new genre of pets. Wonderful.
