Last night there was this awful crashing sound in the sky and flashes of light too. My human daddy says it was thunder and lightning playing together. I don’t know who these people are, but seriously they need to keep it down in future, I was trying to sleep!
Recently my human mummy’s litter mate and his girlfriend went to Chile and met a Llama called Lopez. Lopez has been looking for a pen pal to practice his English with, so they suggested me. I’ve just received my first card from him:
My humans are a bit worried that he might be a bad influence on me and that I’ll start spitting at them. How funny would that be!
I’m hoping that one day I’ll be able to travel to Chile to visit Lopez, but I need to practice my spanish first.
I’ve been doing some soul-searching ever since. The reason I found myself on this path was my humans making me redundant from my dish washing role. What’s to say they won’t do something like that again in the future?? It seems to me I need to work on their training to prevent future hiccups.
I’ve decided to concentrate on one at a time, so I took my human daddy to an extra class on saturday. It was exhausting, but I actually made some progress, and was rewarded with 2 silver stars by the trainer for my efforts! Its going to be an uphill struggle as they seem to be particularly slow, but its definitely a step in the right direction.
But now I really need to catch up on my sleep.
Well, I’ve had a response from the Bonio factory and they have said the following:
Unfortunately, we do not currently require any taste testers, but we have passed your comments to the Bonio Brand Team, which we are sure they will be delighted with.
We are always glad to receive comments from our customers and may we thank you again for taking the time to contact us. If we can be of further assistance please contact us again on the below telephone number.
Looks like I’ll have to think about other job options
Now that I have been replaced by the dishwasher (outrageous!!) I’ve decided I need a new job.
I have a few responsibilities already – alarm clock, bed warmer, entertainer, hoover (well for crumbs anyway), motivator, masseuse, trainer (physical and obedience) and washer (humans are sooo dirty!). But I feel like a need more of a purpose in life. My humans have jobs, so i think I should too.
Although I was bred to pull a sleigh, there isn’t enough snow for that. I’m not stern or grumpy enough to be a guard dog. And I don’t think I’d like to be a sniffer dog, especially if I’m not allowed to eat what I sniff out. I think I could be a good guide dog if I’m allowed to chase pigeons while I’m guiding – that should be OK right?
But all of those job are quite physical and take training and patience. I’d like to find a job which uses the talents I already have.
So today I’ve decided to write to the Bonio factory and offer myself as a taste tester. Its a completely brilliant plan! No one loves Bonios as much as I do! How can they refuse? I hope they reply soon so I can start my new job

It wags when I’m happy, which I like, but for the rest of the time I find it quite confusing.
Sometimes it is well-behaved and trots along happily behind me, and other times it flits around and gets in my way. But when I try to catch it, its just out of reach.
Will my tail and I ever find a balance?
I’ve had a strange few days, mostly because my human mummy has had something called a cold. It seems to involve her nose being wet, talking with a funny voice and making weird noises into tissues. The best thing about it is that she stayed home from work on friday, and we snuggled on the sofa together for most of the weekend<3 I hope she stays cold forever:-)
Then on saturday, the grass shrunk! I still don’t understand what happened to it, but my human daddy says with the amount of rain we have, it will soon grow back. Does that mean it fell out?? I’ll definitely have to keep an eye on that in future.
And yesterday, when my human mummy and I came back from our walk, we found ourselves locked out! She’d forgotten her keys and my daddy wasn’t answering the door. Would we have to live in a cardboard box?? Luckily after lots of knocking and calling, he finally answered. Apparently he’d fallen asleep! What a silly billy!
Today mummy went back to work:-( She still talks funny, but luckily my daddy is on holiday. He needs to wait in for the new dishwasher, which I find a bit offensive as I thought it was MY job to lick all the dishes…! Anyway, hopefully he won’t fall asleep and forget to feed me. Now that could be disastrous!
My humans took me for a photo shoot the other day, and here are the results:-)
I think my human daddy’s been listening to too much planet rock lol
