As we explained to Jane, Canico’s owner, we take the role of godparent very seriously.

Two of our godpet charges are a pair of Cocker Spaniels, George and Milly. We visit them quite regularly but, despite our best efforts, they take no notice when we read to them from the Bible or other improving tomes, such as the ‘Well behaved dog guide”.

They are far more interested in seeing just what they can get away with doing or having when we’re with them. Here are just a few highlights from their long list:

  • Titbits from the table before the humans have finished eating
  • Toys and treats even when it isn’t Christmas or birthdays
  • Belly rubs on demand
  • Begging for walks at any time
  • Jumping and rolling on the bed

We’re just glad we’re not responsible for them all the time!
