Hello, Ludo here. I’m a guinea pig, which you probably know already, and we are doing the A to Z Challenge with Our Favourite Things.
U is a very challenging letter. Nobody could think of anything, until Mummy said ‘Up, up, up’ to me at the end of our cuddle time.
We’ve already told you about cuddles. They are definitely favourite. And Up-up-up means the end of cuddle time and the start of our morning run.
Why does Mummy say it?
It’s to let me know it’s time for me to jump up from the red towel onto her chest so she can lift me up easily. Then she stands up and moves towards the door, and puts me on the floor there so I can run all the way into our room at the back of the house. I enjoy doing that. (Mummy’s found a video of Neville and Roscoe doing it).
I also like jumping up onto Mummy’s chest. It makes me feel good, like I’ve trained her to give me proper commands, instead of just lifting me up when she feels like.
Biggles: Mummy does that with me, too. I think I trained her first.
Whatever, Biggles. It’s a good thing for U, isn’t it?
Biggles: Um, okay.
Locksley: Mummy doesn’t say that to me.
(Sigh). She probably will in time.
So that’s our U for today: Up-up-up – Mummy’s signal for the start of morning run time.
Do you have any routines before your run time? Any commands you’ve taught your mummy?
