Broody is a term we associate with wanting or being ready to have babies but it actually comes from the animal kingdom and refers to the behaviour of sitting on eggs to incubate them and nurture them. Anyway if that is the term for wanting to nurture eggs and babies, it would appear I am broody for another dog! I’m not sure what the term for this is but every time I see a puppy it makes me really want another.
I love Teddy to pieces and he’s utterly spoilt, I just think that it would be great for him to have a permanent playmate. He’s got his friends in the park and he goes to the dog sitter to play with his Labrador friends Toby and Scout but when he’s at home it would be lovely if he had a best friend to grow up with. I also blame one of the senior producers at work for this recent puppy envy because she has just got a 10-week old Boston Terrier and called him Stanley. I recently met Stan and he is beautiful – a cheeky little chappie who has a cracking little personality developing. He has a tiny weeny tail and wiggles when he walks, he has bags of energy but then just collapses shattered.
He climbed on top of me and cuddled up in my arms and fell asleep. He has a little nipping habit at the moment, like all puppies do, where they chew everything and destroy things round the house. It reminds me of the many hours you have to dedicate to positively rewarding their good behaviour and ignoring the bad in order to mould good habits.
Unfortunately Teddy couldn’t meet Stanley because the little fella hasn’t had all of his jabs yet but they will be meeting soon. It’s so lovely to see that a dog is clearly loved and is in a safe and happy home, just where they should be. It’s dreadful to see programmes on TV or adverts about mistreated animals and the terrible circumstances they are subjected to.
At the opposite end of the spectrum Teddy is pampered and went to the groomers this week, something he doesn’t like. He hates being brushed so going to the groomers is a big deal for him but he always looks so handsome when he gets back, take a look. So I have to decide – do I get another dog or not?
Give yourself a lift!
Just had to let you know about the upcoming Elemis TSV this Sunday, it’s the Pro-Intense five-piece Skin Lift Collection and it’s incredible. If you want to give yourself a facial ‘lift’ this winter this new collection launches Saturday 31st January at midnight. Naturally you can expect the best from the UK’s leading luxury spa brand because they deliver results every time!
The total value of the collection is nearly £200 but as always QVC have managed astonishing value for one day only while stocks last, and as we know that isn’t usually long. The Pro-Intense range is the next step on from the Pro-Collagen line and contains the latest ‘lift and firming’ technology for skin that has lost its elasticity and bounce.
Naturally Keeley will be with us on Sunday to give you all the ins and outs and the best way to get the most from this collection. For those that demand the immediate lift effect upon application, this is the collection for you. It includes the new Pro-Intense Lift Effect Day Cream and the Night Cream (£110 usually for the two) as well as a treatment for the lips and eyes, and a cleanser, so it’s a total facial regime.
After showcasing this collection at the Beauty Bash last week feedback from customers was excellent and it’s much anticipated. Can’t wait for Sunday hope you can join us, as always only while stocks last at the one day only Today’s Special Value price. Good luck and see you there!
