Gertrude, or Gertie as her dog and friends know her by, loves to smile despite the fact she only has three teeth. She also loves to give speeches, which she spontaneously erupts into around dinner time and gestures wildly to anyone who will watch and listen. Her favourite pass-times are collecting fluff off the floor and storing it in her cheeks, as well as sucking her toes and standing in a bath. She particularly appreciates anything orange and it is no surprise that her favourite foods are butternut squash, sweet potato and carrots, which she prefers mashed with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese.
