More than a thousand days ago …

Mummy took me to a place called New York City.  In September 2012, we spent five weeks there and I saw many new things.

I wasn’t sure about this very big city.  None of the dogs seem to want to talk to me – they just seem to be in a hurry and never really stopped to say hello. Read more…

Remembering the time we sailed the ocean

Empty Rooms

Over the time we were in New York City, the apartment we were in became more and more empty with the weeks. Then I realised that Mummy was there to close down the apartment that she had lived in for a long time. This was her goodbye. Read more…

Central Park, NYC is Dog City

We went for our walks every day before 9am so I could run off lead.  After which we need to be back on the lead.  Thankfully the park is only two blocks from us so we didn’t have far to go.

Please curb your dog

Along the sidewalks of NYC, are variations of small placards attached to the fencing around trees on the pavement that says “Curb Your Dog.”  Sometimes the placard says – “Curb your dog means off the sidewalk!”  OK! I get it!!! – sometimes 🙂 because I am after all a rebel without a cause!

Leaving on a Jet Plane

Last August I took my first flight – and it was long haul.

On the morning of 30 August, I knew something was not the usual. Mummy was busy and had all these bags at the door. So when she opened the door, I ran out as fast as I could – I didn’t want to be left behind. We got into a car and drive a long way to Heathrow Airport.  We got to the Animal Reception but it was the wrong place and had to go to another terminal where we met Pet Air. Read more…
