Off to dog club in a mo, Monday is our AGM so I as auditor have to review the books today prior to reporting on our finances at the meeting. Just been talking about the intelligence of dogs. John and I of course use English at home and I speak only German at the club. Charlie and Nemo have no problem understanding whichever language I am using. A nearby French dog handler uses of course only French with his dog, so obviously they are just as capable as us of learning different languages! No problem with dog trials, the rules allow foreign competitors to use commands in their own language. I've seen sheepdog trials where a man competing in the pairs event used English to command one collie and Welsh for the other the two dogs only reacted to commands in the one language they were trained in. Brilliant!
Good luck indeed, I'm sure you will both do very well. John has had good results with anti-cramp tablets from Decathlon, he had a spell of getting leg cramps while swimming but the tablets seem to work well.
Felt a bit sore from yesterday's gym class when I got up this morning so I went to the pool for an early swim - did 2000m and am now feeling much better. John has been suffering from a really bad cold while up in Belgium, he's coming home today so I made an executive decision that we are not going to have our usual Friday evening fish, he needs some hot chili and rice.
1 packet of Mexican tortillas, 1 packet of frozen spinach, 1 jar of spicy hot Taco sauce, grated cheese.
Microwave the frozen spinach.
Heat the tortillas.
Spread the warm tortillas with spicey taco sauce and cooked spinach. Roll up and place in a greased oven dish. Spread more taco sauce over the outside of the tortillas and sprinkle with grated cheese. Bake in the oven. Quick, easy and delicious.
I don't like spinach so this is a way to get it down me!
