Food for us and those in need

Yes, George, we do manage to consume ALL of that between us. Read more…

George, cupla focal

Hey George! Nice to see you again. We learnt cupola focal in Gaelic. It sounds rather rude in English but it means “a couple of words” 🙂 Read more…

Beannacht agus dea-luck

And so we say “fare thee well” Ireland.   Read more…

Dublin by Night

We are back in Dublin! Read more…

Smuggled from Galway to Dublin

We made it back to Dublin – Phew!!! Read more…

Céad Mile Fáilte!

Céad Mile Fáilte is Gaelic for 100,000 welcomes!  That’s how we felt when we arrived at Ashford Castle. Read more…

Feeling Blue

Sitting in our blue room and feeling rather blue – wondering why I am not allowed on the bed. Read more…

A Guinness and a Grammy

Our friend Eamon who drove us on the beautiful route in Connemara took us to a pub at Westport called Matt Molloy’s. Read more…

40 Shades of Green

They weren’t kidding when they said it’s very green in Ireland!  I kept looking longingly out of the window of the car as we drove to Connemara – wining I could run in the vast open fields. Read more…

Wish you were here

We sent Georgie a postcard from Ashford Castle.  He probably won’t get it before we’re back – but really to say we were thinking of him. Read more…

A rousing welcome at Ashford Castle

After we got off the train, a lovely man met us at Galway station and drove us to Ashford Castle.

I looked out at the green, green fields. Liking it so far! Read more…

The necessity of travelling incognito in Ireland

Yes, when you’re a pet dog on an Irish train.

We have heard how the Irish trains in NI are really undecided what they agree. In some cases dogs of certain size are allowed, in some instances, no dogs are allowed on board, or they have to be crated and muzzled and small – very confusing. Well, we thought that was in the north. Read more…

Top o’ the mornin’ to ya

We’re in Dublin!

Arrived in the dark last evening and now we’re up and now leaving for Galway! Maybe we’ll see something on the way to the train station. I hope we do, I’ve heard about the amazing hotels in Ireland, and how some have HUGE grounds for me to run around and play in! Like The Twelve, hotel in Galway, it’s super fancy but I’m a super fancy dog (I’ll fit right in!).

Before we get onto yet another train, just wanted to say “top o’ the mornin’ to ya!” Read more…

To Éire we go

On the road again – and it’s just the two of us. No George. Seems a little strange without little dinky. So I’m back on Mummy’s lap. Read more…

Cronaim thu Georgie Porgie

I was told that means “I miss you” in Irish Gaelic.

Mummy and I are leaving for Ireland this morning, and George isn’t coming with us.  He wasn’t invited as he came after the plans were made. 🙁 Read more…

I barked at the reindeer …

.. . and Father Christmas. I didn’t like him last year either when we went to see him with Little Tyke at Harrod’s Christmas Grotto.  Read more…

Scaredy cat George!

You remember Bertie, the neighbourhood cat. There was one evening early this year when thought we we had lost him to the foxes. But he’s a smart old thing.

I quite like him – we understand each other. We keep our distances. Read more…

We found one Paddington!

There are 50 Paddington Bear statues in London – we found one yesterday. He was at the Duke of York Square –  Read more…

It was a Quilted Jacket day

We did not go to the park today. Instead we went for a three-hour walk – Mummy was having retail therapy! 🙂 Read more…

Tug-o-wars in America!

There are tug-o-wars all over America!

Mummy had brought each of our doggy friends in America when she went to visit.  They are from the new collection of toys from Alice Foxx.

We can now rest …

Phew! Now that we know we can’t confirm what George’s origins are, we can all relax and get some sleep! Read more…

Curious about George

We are all curious about Mr. Clooney, I mean, George as in our little Hungarian mutt. Everyone has an opinion about what he is. Read more…

Dogs do it better!

This is Jordan on the left. He and his colleague, Hurricane (right) stopped a White House intruder – they performed their duties flawlessly, where their human counterparts had failed to do recently.  Read more…

Mister Darcy III

I met Mister Darcy number 3 the other day when we were at the park. That’s him on the left and me on the right. He’s only 10 months old – so quite a bit younger than me!
