The Fuss about Grapes

July 5th, 2017 by Marketing Manager Mac

I don’t really know what all the fuss is about with grapes. For a start, I am not allowed to eat them, although I do munch on the prunings from the vine from time to time. But basically they’re no fun at all – too small to play with and Dave says we are just…

Tractor Trouble

June 28th, 2017 by Marketing Manager Mac

Dave is always getting into trouble on the tractor. He seems to have the car permanently hooked up to it with these big red leads. There is always something not working right. I think he should ditch it and get a pack of my mates to pull stuff around. Whatever happened to dog power anyway?…

Vinyl records

May 17th, 2017 by Marketing Manager Mac

Dave is obsessed with old stuff. It all started with what he calls vinyl records – some sort of plastic discs that are no good for chasing at all but produce music when he puts them on a machine of some sort. I wasn’t so keen – seemed like a waste of time and space…

Marketing Manager

April 5th, 2017 by Marketing Manager Mac

I am doing my best as marketing manager – not that I ever asked for the job. They always roll me out when a group of customers arrive. But I have to say – I know bugger all about grapes, in fact I’m not even allowed to eat them. Weird that Dave would choose to…

What’s wrong with food

March 22nd, 2017 by Marketing Manager Mac

Everyone keeps saying I’m obsessed with food. Unfair. I don’t know what they’re on about – Dave barely gives me enough to fuel my old engine and M keeps telling him to stop feeding me – I’m confused! Anyway, people who come into the cellar door are the ones who are obsessed with food. I…

Nets

February 8th, 2017 by Marketing Manager Mac

Dave spent hours out in the heat putting nets over the vines, and I don’t get it. What a lot of palaver! Does Dave seriously think the birds won’t break in if they really want to! They’re not stupid you know and they have a habit of sticking their beaks in where they don’t belong….

Old Stuff

January 14th, 2017 by Marketing Manager Mac

Dave is sneaky when he gets old stuff. He drags me off to all sorts of places and I sit there smiling at various hobos looking to get rid of their useless crap, all the time thinking ‘what is M going to say about this’. Of course he doesn’t tell M – all very cloak…

Christmas present

December 25th, 2016 by Marketing Manager Mac

Dave’s ‘Piece de resistance’ as he called it (he thinks he is cool when he jibbers a bit of French) was M’s Christmas present. What a joke! M, like any other woman, would no doubt like jewelery or clothes or even a new puppy for me to play with and her to cuddle. But oh…
