Toby's Diary

Being good with numbers

I'll admit to being fooled for a while yesterday morning. We had our breakfast and mum had hers and then she pootled about and before she went to work we had another breakfast. I wasn't sure if she had forgotten that she had already fed us or if she had remembered our unfortunate hollow legs that are making us so hungry but I ate it anyway.

Turns out is was because mum was late back from work. Very late. She tried to justify it saying she had to stay late and train the evening team. I said she should have come home and trained us instead.

Mum said that they were learning how to be accurate with numbers and she wasn't sure that would be useful for Josie and me. Neither was I at first but then I realised how important it is. If I have six treats and Josie has seven then I know she deserves one whacky paw later. And accurately counting my treats helps me keep track.

Now we've sorted that out mum won't have to work late again.

It rained a lot last night so we woke mum up to tell her. Then Josie went to cuddle up with mum under the duvet and I nestled by mum's legs and we listened to the rain on the window and felt very cosy and snug and the really important things in life like cosy can't be counted.

My philosophy is - whack them even if they have less treats than you. Then you get all the treats!

ConCATulations Toby! You are a DDP again today. I hope you'll enjoy your day in the spotlight. I agree with you...counting how many treats you have is furry important! You have to know how many you have so you'll know how fast to eat them so your siblings can't get them from you.

Toby, I think you are very good with numbers. I always get catfused if I have to count higher than five - which is not often.
