Barbara Yung's life in England

Barbara has always been found of dogs and cats. At the fish and chip shop there were lot of cats and two large dogs. One was a blond Labrador and the other a German shepherd. They stayed in the yard and weren't allowed to come upstairs in the living quarters. The shepherd gave birth to a beautiful black puppy. Barbara's uncle decided that three dogs was to many and sold the shepherd, Barbara's favorite, she was very upset about this.

One Sunday Barbara asked me to join her for walk with the dogs. We loaded them in Barbara's car and drove to Grantchester meadows. The dogs were obviously not used to getting out. They didn't listing at all. The black dog had never been out of the yard before and at first was afraid to leave the car. When it finally did get out of the car we had to pull it along the walking path, it was keeping its belly continuously on the ground. This was heavy work as this dog was quite large. The Labrador on the other hand was so glad it was taking out, that it ran away immediately. It must have been a funny sight, me trying to get this black dog to move and Barbara running after the Labrador trying to catch it.

Finally we managed to get the dogs to the spot where we wanted to be. It was a lovely sunny afternoon and we had nice placet beside the river, where we could lay in the long grass without being disturbed. I was laying face up and Barbara had her head on my tummy. This was one of those nice romantic moments one doesn't easily forget. While I ran my fingers through her hair, Barbara was telling me her dreams about the future. How she wanted kids one day, she preferred girls, so she could dress them up nicely. While laying there, we even dosed off and we completely forget about the dogs. The black dog didn't dare to move but the Labrador was gone again, nowhere in sight. The next few hours we looked everywhere for that dog. We gave up and went to the police station to report the dog missing. Luckily the police had received a call about a blond Labrador without guidance near Grantchester meadows. Finally the police had to help us catching that dog. We never went walking with those dogs again.

I don't know how many cats there were at Barbara's place, a lot and every time I came round there seem to be more new ones. One of them was Barbara's favorite and only this one was allowed in the apartment.

Sometimes, when Barbara's family was away for a while, I came round to see Barbara at her home in Histon. Barbara made sure that nobody would see me there, even if there were people just making deliveries. One day I was there and an insurance agent came round. Barbara ordered me to hide in kitchen and to be quiet. I went to the kitchen and sat there waiting. After a while the house cat came towards me, went under the bench I was sitting on and started shitting on the floor. What a smell that was and I had to just sit there and be quiet. When the insurance guy finally was gone, Barbara came to the kitchen, she cleared up the shit and while doing it she said as if it was normal: "that cat always does that there".

I like dogs and cats but not the ones Barbara had.

猫猫狗狗

美玲一直都喜欢猫猫狗狗。在炸鱼薯条店里有很多猫和两条大狗,一条是金黄色的拉不拉多狗,另一条是德国牧羊犬。它们被关在后院里,不能上楼上人住的区域。那条德国牧羊犬生了一条漂亮的小黑狗,美玲的舅舅认为三条狗太多了,就把德国牧羊犬给卖了,美玲最喜欢那条狗了,为此她很受打击。

一个星期天早上美玲让我跟她一起去遛狗,我们把那些狗放在美玲的车里,开去格兰贾斯特草原。那两条狗很少出门,他们根本不听指挥。黑狗从没出过家中后院, 到地方后,它害怕得不肯下车,后来终於下车了,它老是停下来不走,肚子贴著地,我们得一路拉著它走。这条德国牧羊犬很大,拉起来非常费劲。相反地,那条拉不拉多狗太高兴出门了,马上就跑掉了。那是一个非常滑稽的场景,一边是我努力让黑狗往前走,另一边是美玲努力追赶拉不拉多狗想抓住它。

终於我们总算成功地把两条狗带到了我们想去的那个地方,那是一个阳光明媚的午后,我们在河边一个很好的位置,在那里我们可以躺在长长的茂密的草上,静静地,没人打扰,我仰面朝上躺著,美玲把头枕在我的肚子上,这是那些永生难忘的美妙的罗曼蒂克时刻中的其中一个。我抚摸著美玲的头发,这时美玲告诉我她对将来的梦想,有一天她会特别想要个孩子,她喜欢女孩,可以把女儿打扮得漂漂亮亮。躺在那里时,我们甚至打起了瞌睡,完全忘记了那两条狗。黑狗不敢动,但拉不拉多狗又一次不见了,不知道跑哪去了,接下来的几个小时,我们到处寻找那条狗。最终我们放弃了,去了警察局报失那条狗,很幸运的是,员警接到了一个电话,说有人在格兰贾斯特草原附近看到一条无人看管的金黄色的拉不拉多狗。最后还是靠员警帮忙我们才能逮住那条狗。我们以后再也没出去遛过那些狗了。

我不知道美玲家有多少猫,很多吧,每次我去的时候好象都有一些新的。其中只有一个是美玲最喜欢的,也只有这个能去美玲的公寓。

有时,当美玲的家人不在家的时候,我会去美玲在HISTON的家。美玲会确保没人在那里见到我,即使是上门送货的人也不会见到我。有一天我在美玲家,有个保险代理上门来了,美玲命令我躲在厨房,不要出声,我就去了厨房,坐在那里等。过了一会儿,房子里的那只猫朝我走过来,走到我坐的长椅下面,开始拉屎,好臭啊,可是我得坐在那里不能出声。保险代理终於走了,美玲来到厨房,她一边打扫那堆屎,一边觉得好象司空见惯:"猫总是在这个地方干这个的。"

我喜欢猫猫狗狗,可是我不喜欢美玲家的那些。

貓貓狗狗

美玲一直都喜歡貓貓狗狗。在炸魚薯條店裡有很多貓和兩條大狗,一條是金黃色的拉不拉多狗,另一條是德國牧羊犬。它們被關在後院裡,不能上樓上人住的區域。
那條德國牧羊犬生了一條漂亮的小黑狗,美玲的舅舅認為三條狗太多了,就把德國牧羊犬給賣了,美玲最喜歡那條狗了,為此她很受打擊。

一個星期天早上美玲讓我跟她一起去遛狗,我們把那些狗放在美玲的車裡,開去格蘭賈斯特草原。那兩條狗很少出門,他們根本不聽指揮。黑狗從沒出過家中後院, 到地方後,它害怕得不肯下車,後來終於下車了,它老是停下來不走,肚子貼著地,我們得一路拉著它走。這條德國牧羊犬很大,拉起來非常費勁。相反地,那條拉不拉多狗太高興出門了,馬上就跑掉了。那是一個非常滑稽的場景,一邊是我努力讓黑狗往前走,另一邊是美玲努力追趕拉不拉多狗想抓住它。

終於我們總算成功地把兩條狗帶到了我們想去的那個地方,那是一個陽光明媚的午後,我們在河邊一個很好的位置,在那裡我們可以躺在長長的茂密的草上,靜靜地,沒人打擾,我仰面朝上躺著,美玲把頭枕在我的肚子上,這是那些永生難忘的美妙的羅曼蒂克時刻中的其中一個。我撫摸著美玲的頭髮,這時美玲告訴我她對將來的夢想,有一天她會特別想要個孩子,她喜歡女孩,可以把女兒打扮得漂漂亮亮。躺在那裡時,我們甚至打起了瞌睡,完全忘記了那兩條狗。黑狗不敢動,但拉不拉多狗又一次不見了,不知道跑哪去了,接下來的幾個小時,我們到處尋找那條狗。最終我們放棄了,去了警察局報失那條狗,很幸運的是,員警接到了一個電話,說有人在格蘭賈斯特草原附近看到一條無人看管的金黃色的拉不拉多狗。最後還是靠員警幫忙我們才能逮住那條狗。我們以後再也沒出去遛過那些狗了。

我不知道美玲家有多少貓,很多吧,每次我去的時候好象都有一些新的。其中只有一個是美玲最喜歡的,也只有這個能去美玲的公寓。

有時,當美玲的家人不在家的時候,我會去美玲在HISTON的家。美玲會確保沒人在那裡見到我,即使是上門送貨的人也不會見到我。有一天我在美玲家,有個保險代理上門來了,美玲命令我躲在廚房,不要出聲,我就去了廚房,坐在那裡等。過了一會兒,房子裡的那只貓朝我走過來,走到我坐的長椅下面,開始拉屎,好臭啊,可是我得坐在那裡不能出聲。保險代理終於走了,美玲來到廚房,她一邊打掃那堆屎,一邊覺得好象司空見慣:"貓總是在這個地方幹這個的。"

我喜歡貓貓狗狗,可是我不喜歡美玲家的那些。
