This isn't Tilly but a lookalikey called Belle, she's eighteen months old. I chatted to her owners just as we were leaving the dog-friendly eating place with Tilly, it's a place we used to frequent with our last dog Annie who I have to say was always well behaved and would lie underneath the table while we enjoyed our meal. Oh no not Tilly.
We waited to be seated, gave in our name and phone number as per covid rules. The waiter was very kind and showed us to our seats and asked if we would like a bowl of water and a dog biscuit for Tilly. So while he went to fetch them Tilly decided she would jump onto the bench to sit next to hubby. The waiter returned and asked politely if we could keep her off the furniture at which point Tilly jumped onto the table and I was horrified. Lifting her down she promptly landed in the bowl of water tipping it up and sending water all over the floor. We apologised profusely and told the waiter we weren't able to stay and explained that Tilly was just a pup. A naughty one I might add unlike Belle who was as good as gold.
The best bit of this tale is we had set out today to find the place that's the venue for the puppy training classes in a few weeks time, they can't come soon enough for me. Now I'm worried if anybody should slip in the water all over the floor they have our name and phone number and know where to find us. Oh Tilly!
