Our long gone, much missed Sweepy ... long haired, but tiny ... absolutely loved ... was hooked on:

Strawberry yoghurt, but only from the plastic pot, not from a saucer
Glacé kumquats
Olives

She was a total freak for kidney cores and liver, and she could pick up the sound of me running a cook's knife over the steel at any distance and, in a trice, would be tied round my ankles begging for the scraps. There was the time when we went to the fridge to get out the liver intended for our dinner, only to find no sign of it. On questioning, ≤4-year-old daughter admitted giving it to Sweepy!

We should have called her "Diana" really, as when she first came to us, we were living in the country and she was a dedicated huntress -- though only chaste as a result of a visit to the vet, but definitely fair -- with rabbit her favourite prey, though she would never turn down mice, shrews and certainly not pheasant whenever she could get one. Not long after she came to us, that spring, she had a haul of 60 rabbits in one month, most of them bigger than her! Her hunting range was something over 2 miles.

As a professional, you, are your one and only asset. Without integrity you are worthless, but with it, you are priceless.
