A problem with which other dog owners can sympathise – and certainly one that causes daily problems in our household – involves our 5-year-old working cocker spaniel, Indie. True to her retrieving breed, Indie loves nothing better than searching out the perfect object to carry around the house, and to her this means slippers.
She does not discriminate. Any slipper will do! In fact, since my wife and baby daughter Eva have recently come into possession of some luxurious Ruby & Ed slippers, we have had to be extra vigilant (particularly as I recently found one of my own slippers floating soggily in the pond. Presumably Indie felt the tadpoles needed a new home!)
