I was all ready to play a trick on River his morning and then bang my best laid plans went out of the window.
Our usual morning routine consists of me getting up and having an hour or so on my own downstairs. Daddy gets up, has a shower, cup of coffee and goes to work. Then I go in and wake up my other Daddy and River, Daddy goes and has a bath and River and I come down the stairs, unless she's too sleepy to move and has a sleep in, run outside and have a play. Often River gets herself so excited she starts to bark and Daddy comes downstairs, calls us in and gives us both our breakfast and some treats.
Today I thought I'd play a little trick on her and hid behind the garden screen, thinking she would get herself all confused and I would have a laugh before revealing myself.
There I was waiting, and waiting and nothing so in the end I ran back inside to see what she was up to.
Oh my goodness much flapping going on as somehow a frog had got in, Daddy was running around the kitchen trying to find something to put him in while River, all excited with her new friend, didn't know whether to run after Daddy or play with the frog.
In the end he managed to capture it in a box and gently put it outside.
River just sat there blinking at him looking very confused.
Oh River, there was no way he was going to let you keep him, no matter how much you give him big sad eyes.
