OK, so I softened a bit and made him feel a bit more welcome and now he is really playing on my good nature. He follows me everywhere. I can't do a thing without him being an inch away. He steals my ball when Herself is throwing it for me and I have to let him have a play with it.
He sleeps in my bed whenever he gets the chance and drags all manner of uncomfortable items into the bed, so that when I do get a chance to have a nap I find shoes, clothing, bones, toys, paper, brushes, balls and whatever else happens to be left around within his reach.
Well, now it's back again. Just a shot of me exploring the water pipe. I did get a roasting for digging up the pipe. Oops, now the photo has gone again. Weird!! I think the first attempts were too big. Seems to like little photos better.
And are Alfie and me friends? Well, I guess so - or beginning to be anyway.
