In the Dog House (at The Pig Hotel)

Since I have been on the road, I thought about a trip I took last year when my little tyke friend, Sasha was in London.  It is almost a year to the date when we went to the New Forest and stayed at The Pig Hotel.DSC04242

Long Journey Home

We began our journey from Kinloch Lodge at 16.30. The very nice taxi driver gave us a little detour so we could see more of the island. I just like looking out the window – wind in my face.

Tonight we make our long journey home to London … train from Kyle of Lochalsh to Inverness and then to be confined in a cabin on the Caledonian all night – from Inverness to Euston Station, London.

From Heartbreak to Romance

Ducks, rabbits, sheep and rain – we must be in the Highlands

It was drizzling this morning when we went for our morning walk but it’s raining now as we get ready to leave for Skye. This is more like the weather Mummy was expecting and she’s quite relieved because she brought clothes for this weather Read more…

Cul Lodair (that’s Culloden in Scottish)

Signor Lucio – il mio amico!

We went to Agility’s again today despite it being the hottest day of the year!  But we worked mainly in the shade.  I did all sorts of jumps … turning right, left and doing the number 8.

Then we ran through this weird tunnel with fabric on one end which meant I had to find burrow my way through it.  As long as there’s a treat at the end of it, I’m fine. Just weird!

IMG_1630Me coming out at the other end with Sue White holding the tunnel! Read more…

SNOG A Puppy’s Guide to Love

photo-160We made it!!!

May’s comment: What a lovely book about “puppy love.”  Rachel Hale’s heart melting portraiture of puppies – “from golden retrievers to German shepherds, bulldogs to Boston terriers” and even one of a Cockerpoo!  We love puppies but as Rachel says in her introduction – the love puppies give is consistent and unconditional. Yes, we can learn a few lessons form them.
