Hello, it is me, every bodies favourite scamp, Arran!
I am very grown up now and I think I know pretty much everything there is to know! I am standing in the middle of what my Mum Ladee calls a ‘Scamp attack’.
That is when I am feeling really energetic and I can only let it out by destroying something, or trying to get everyone to play with me! Barking non stop at my Dad and Ludo usually works pretty well! I am especially good at being annoying.
Ludo does not play for long before he says I am being too boisterous and he jumps on the sofa.
I can ALMOST reach the sofa and if I jump I can hit Ludo and bite his feet and annoy him some more and then he will sometimes chase me. Being chased is my most favourite game, or maybe biting Ladee’s feet, or chasing the broom. Ladee says I am a land shark. Did you know I almost got called Sharkie, because I have a white tip to my tail? I am a very good shark.
I am also very good at chasing away intruders. Especially those people who come right near our window with a big beepy car and take our wheelie bin.
One thing I do not know is how to not go in the car. I do not like the car as it makes me feel sick but Ladee keeps on making me go in it. Sometimes when I know I am going to go in the car I try and run and hide behind my Dad’s legs so Ladee cannot get me, but she always does! Sometimes Dad comes too. We do go fun places like agility in the car but I wish we could just walk there instead. I think I am very good at doing agility. I do not need Ladee to help me and tell me what to do. Once she has shown me once or twice and given me a treat for getting it right, I can do it myself thank you very much and I do not like if I do not get a treat after I have done something by myself. I like to figure things out myself.
I am getting better at winning tug of war.
Ladee says I am cheating because I lie down, but I do not know what cheating is, even though I do know most things now.
I know how to get cuddles and strokes and be given socks to chew up just by looking adorable! That the best kind of Scamp Attack because it make everyone happy.
