It's not every day in the Banks household that I find some juicy new shoes to chew, or some curly laces to lick. I like to think that I have got a particular talent for sniffing
out new footwear.
Certainly no other dog in my street can demolish a pair of boots faster than me. My owner, Robin refuses to recognise this particular skill. It is a pity really, as in most
other respects his training has been progressing well, even though he can only understand a little bit of dog. So far I have taught him "walk" when I rattle my lead, "dinner"
when I shove my bowl at him and "nasty neighbour on doorstep" when I bark and he rushes to hide behind the sofa.
Still, we get along just fine. Sometimes I take him for a walk to our local park, or else we go for a drive in his orange car. It's a tiny, tinny thing, the size of a can of beans and Robin's tall, bigger than some trees I have seen. He drives with his knees up around his ears and the sun-roof open. (Lucky he has a can opener.) Our outings happen at funny hours, as Robin spends a lot of time trying to catch criminals. (Yes even I know that
Robin Banks is not a good name for a policeman.)
