I don’t understand, I thought they were intended for me, why else would she leave them on the floor, if not to be eaten? She knows how I feel about shoes! I stare at her whilst she goes mad, clutching at her pair of half eaten 9,000RMB shoes, and I can’t help but find her ridiculous. I tire of her shouting. Where is she going? Pay me attention. Pay me attention. Pay me attention. Walkies? It’s not easy being a dog. Feed me. It’s actually quite diffi- oooh yeah rub me on my tummy baby – it’s a hard life.  She calls me baby and makes me feel safe, but this is a pre-emptive strike. I smell her trepidation… She’s going to leave me! She shuts the door behind her, I’m alone, and how long will I be alone for this time? What if she doesn’t come back? I’ll teach her a lesson in abandonment….Where are those bitch's shoes?! [Cecilia Garcia]
