How to talk to your dog about load shedding

It’s okay sweetie, everything’s gonna be fine

I know it’s dark but you cannot sneak onto my bed

Fine, I’ll put a flashlight on your pillow.

Yes, next to your biscuit.

Maybe we’ll find biscuits that glow in the dark.

And yes, you may share my valium.

Just eat before popping.

I know, I’m also a little bit scared.

No-one’s gonna break in, promise.

If they do, hide with me.

Look, I’m flattered, but you have to get off my lap.

Do you know you look good in this light?

I’ll brush you.  Lets do some hair shedding.

Also, please only hide my shoes when it’s light.

This shoe shedding is not so funny.

See ha ha we can make jokes about it.

It’s not so bad.

Whimper.

Eskom, they’re a bunch of cunts hey.

Blow the candles out before bed.

Oh you already did?

You’re a good dog.

Load shedding. A thing in South Africa where because of corruption we have no power. For a couple of hours a day.   It’s not good. For humans or for dogs.
