C / Fiona

Fiona, who Works as a nurse, has a Siamese cat called Tooting.
She’s spent over four years trying to cure Tooting of anorexia,
a problem you have if you don’t eat. ‘ There was a time when I thought Tooting wouldn’t survive, he was so painfully thin.
His previous owner told me that it had been on antibiotics because he had problems with his teeth and gums.
 I’d do everything to tempt him eat- buy him fresh prawns and salmon, then hand-feed it to him.
In the end I saw an animal  behaviorist who said that Tooting had profound anxiety about eating because
he associated it with pain. So I had some of his teeth extracted and I was given a pain releaving electrical
device that he wears when he eats.  It’s been pretty successful and Tooting is eating fairly normally again.

Anorexia : not wanting to eat
Tempt : support, encourage
Profound : deep
Anxiety : worry
A / Brett                                                        

Brett got his pet Doberman, called Sonny, from an organisation which rescues dogs that have been badly
treated by their previous owners. “ The day after Sonny arrived he refused to let me into the house after work ,
and when I fought my way in, he bit me. It was like an all out war. I didn’t know what to do,
I had had Dobermans before and I know they are very bright dogs and I felt he deserved a chance.
I finally went to see an animal behaviorist and although it took over two years of  tremendously hard work.
Sonny is much better. The therapist started by retraining me. I had to ignore its bad behaviour. 
He had to learn that I was in charge. It’s been the hardest job I’ve ever done, and although Sonny
can still be a bit tricky, he’s a different dog these days.

Treat : behave
Deserve : earn
Retrain : train again

B / Rosemary
Rosemary had always wanted  a parrot, so a year ago she acquired William from an advert in a newspaper.
I needed a bit of company as I’m a pensioner living on own, so at first I was delighted to get William.
Well, three weeks after I got him, he suddenly started barking like a dog.The flat where I live don’t allow dogs and
William made such a loud barking noise that neighbour reported me. The William started repeating the arguments
he must have heard at his previous owners. They were a young couple getting divorced. William shouted
“ Steve, you are a liar. Don’t go Steve, I love you Steve. ( Steve was the husband’s name ).
I took William to see an  animal behaviorist who said he was in good condition,
but she couldn’t do anything for him and she thought that in time he’d forget his past owners  and
start copying the noises I make. In fact, I like Opera and he has now started to sing along,
as  I do when I’m listening, although he can  only manage the high notes.

Acquire : get
Bark ; sound dogs produce.

D / Vicki
Vicki has a dachshund called ‘ Yoda’. ‘ At about six months Yoda suddenly became wild.
She’d rush up to anyone-especially if she thought they were doing something she regarded as odd,
such as sitting on the grass or sunbathing- and start barking. She’d chase passers-by,
particularly if theywere carrying umbrellas, and stand and bark at objects like post-boxes and tin cans on the pavement.
I spent the whole time going red in the face and apologising to people.
But I knew enough about dogs to suspect that Yoda’s problem was due less to being very aggressive than to excessive fear.
As I’d got her as a puppy from a reputable breeder, I knew there was nothing basically wrong with her.
I only had one consultation and Yoda was immediately better. I was given a device called an Aboistop,
which fits on a dog’s collar. Each time Yoda barks it squirts lemon esence, which isn’t  at harmful but
dogs don’t like the smell. It has worked like a dream’

 Odd : strange, weird
 Apologising: saying sorry
reputable breeder:  famous for breeding ( feed ) animals
consultation: discussing before decision.
Collar : a part round the neck ( tasma )
Squirt : fışkırtma
