This should be reassuring for us, but somehow it isn’t. Don’t get me wrong – I’m sure the course itself was very good – but Annabelle has never been the most practical of humans.
For instance, she told us she listened attentively and took notes, but there’s little evidence of this in the photos. We know she has a tendency to go off into a world of her own, and it looks like that’s what was happening here.
And what exactly is going on here?
Annabelle explained it was a dressing for a dog who had a long, sharp object stuck in his neck – Ceri held the pretend dog while Annabelle put on the bandage. All I can say is, I hope neither Pearl or I ever get a long, sharp object stuck in our neck.
By all accounts the pretend dog caused quite a stir, because certain dogs who live at the Sanctuary thought it was real and made futile attempts to scare it off their territory.
Pearl says she’d rather have Annabelle deal with our illnesses and injuries than the vet…
…but I reckon the vet is the lesser of the two evils. First aid is not meant to replace the vet – and besides, we’d need the vet after Annabelle’s first aid, whether there was anything wrong with us or not.
