Uglyworld #679 - Daily Supplement (209-365)

Project 365 - Image 209/365

Being away from home always affects people in different ways, some get through the daily drag in far off lands by burying themselves inside the work that they're there to do, others need constant contact with their loved ones back home, and in the case of Rolf it's been quite hard for him to get to grips with this trip to the USA.

Every morning back home in Aachen he'd wake myself and Mireille by either jumping up onto the bed and deciding quickly which one of us would get their face licked that particular day, or simply knocking his little bowl around to make enough noise that one of us would eventually get up and sort out his breakfast.

When Rolf first arrived to live with us we both wondered what do Uglydogs eat for breakfast, to which the little guy replied, "Aarrrrr, ruf, ruffff, aarf". There we had everything explained to us within a couple of seconds flat - cookies, preferably heated up!

With Wage and Tray looking after Rolf he was exposed to irn-bru almost straight away and like many other uglies who taste the Scottish soft drink he ended up addicted to the stuff! Now, that's all good and well until he found himself over in America without even the scarcest hope of finding even a single bottle of can of the orange-coloured "soda".

It wasn't until this morning when I awoke to Rolf's "Roooooraaaaaaaa, rooooooorrrrraaa" that I finally realised he had managed to find a replacement for his daily supplement - Cream Soda which thankfully I had chilled to perfection in the hotel room fridge.

So there you have it, if you're a fellow Uglydog owner and find yourself in Scotland you need to have a never-ending supply of Cookies and Irn-Bru, and if you're located on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean over here in America you're going to have to stock up on Cookies and Cream Soda to keep the little guy happy.
