As I arrived for my date, I energetically pinched what I thought was my husband’s bottom and enveloped him in an enthusiastic bear hug from behind, only to be met with a complete stranger. This was years ago and we still laugh about it today!!!

I scoured the room for my date, only to find her enthusiastically greeting another man’s derriere. We’re married now!

Many moons ago, I was invited for an evening meal by a friend lawyer. I approved out of pure politeness. We ended up having a meal special at Burger King with close to no conversation.

So we went for a night out. Its started great but I forgot that I had taken some medication for a headache. So after like 2 hours of drinking I passed out in a park. I lost my keys, my headphones, everything! We didn’t go out again…

There I was, minding my own business, when Daddy Paul and Mummy Nic come home with this Dachshund who was, quite frankly, barking mad. As I was making myself comfortable on the sofa that evening, guess who walks in with undies in his mouth?! Doesn’t he know we’re only meant to chew left shoes and unidentified objects from outside?

When I first arrived at my new home, I saw the most beautiful Dachshund I’ve ever seen. It was puppy-love at first sight. I decided to bring her some of the humans’ underfur as a romantic gift, but try as I mutt, it didn’t go down so well and she nipped me. That was ruff…
