Well, what an exciting time it’s been! Imagine me, Blossom from Kenilworth, who was rehomed three times, appearing on National TV to discuss Dog Trust’s Canine Charter for Human Health! I knew something was apaw when Trish, that’s my human, woke me up in the middle of the night and started doing my hair and nails. Now I enjoy a pampering session as much as the next dog, but getting me up at 3:30 a.m!!
All was explained when a strange car pulled into our drive at around 5 a.m. I noticed the lights way before Trish did – humans are so unobservant – and knowing my duty, I barked the house down. Anyway, next thing I know, I’m plonked in the car on Trish’s lap, and we’re whisked away into the night. Before I know what’s wagging, I’m being chauffeur driven through security at the BBC, and escorted to the Green Room. A bit overwhelming at first, lots of humans admiring me and wanting to see me – wait a minute, I thought! Who is that bloke and why is he calling me Blossom? It’s Mrs. Willoughby to you, mate! Time for a bit of barking here, I think!
Then, next I knew, Trish was introducing me to Clarissa Baldwin herself! I nearly wagged my tail off! Blossom, I said to myself, you’re meeting all the greats today! Then Sally Wright arrived, and what a lot of fussing I enjoyed. The humans then were taken to make up – obviously with my good looks and star quality I didn’t need any – and before you could wag your tail it was lights, camera, action, and there I was, Mrs. Blossom Willoughby, live from London in every sitting room across the British Isles! Trish explained how I help her to feel better when she is sad or poorly – wow, I thought, I’m a healer and never realised it! All the time Clarissa and Trish were barking – I mean talking – to the presenters the cameras were full on ME!
Finally, we said goodbye to our new friends from Dogs Trust, and back home we went. I was glad to see my basket – I was exhausted with all the sniffing and barking I had to do. Anyway, hope you managed to catch my TV debut; now I wonder … they’ll soon be looking for a new Bond Girl. Wonder should I apply????
Barks and wags
