Friends from all over the world have been dropping in to visit every weekend since mid-May. Besides having fish-n-chips and High Tea with them, we’ve had a chance to play tourists too. Most of the time, Mummy and I have been left standing outside of these places as dogs are not allowed in.
This week we have Stefania and Benedetta from Milano! And today we went to Windsor so they can visit the castle.
Me, afraid of escalators so Mummy has to carry me. We arrived at Paddington Statiton with time to spare so Mummy gulped down her croissant while I followed her every bite in earnest. Here we are – the whole entourage just outside of Windsor Castle. We did speak to one of the staff about dogs not allowed in given that dogs do live in the castle. Wink! Wink! We agreed we should write the Queen and ask her that. Maybe she might make an exception. 🙂 That’s Stefania and Benedetta and then Ellen and Kai visiting from Dubai and then us! We sent them off on their tour before we headed off on our way.
We walked towards the Windsor and Eton bridge. The river view is rather pretty. Crikey! That’s a lot of swans! They’re not very nice – always hisses at me even when I am a good distance away.We went to a lovely little gift shop called Hush and Mummy bought a vase before we walked onto some green fields. And we saw there were lots of dogs running around – but the first one that came to say hello was a cockapoo!!!Let’s do the doodle dash! Mummy was throwing balls for me in this wide open field.And along the way I met these two Labradoodles and a Poodle who were very curious about meThis is Max This is Marvin. Max and Marvin are half-brothers – same mother but different fathers. 😉 And the black poodle is Sunny – I think he’s Max’s father. Gosh! I’m getting all the gossip.All too soon, the others were done. We stopped off for a cup of tea at The Crooked House. Kai kept asking why they built the house that way. The adults were all too tired to answer him and partly because they don’t know the answer. LOL!
And see what Benedetta got – a corgi! I’ll tell you more about Benedetta later.Along the streets we met Mabel! A cockapoo puppy – all of 16 weeks with her very proud parents! We walked towards the river again to have lunch at The River House Me, trying to get at Stefania’s burger! From all possible angles.But alas, I got nothing.After lunch we walked back along the river – doing a few photo opp poses with the kids
And more photo ops!Here’s me posing with Benedetta’s Corgi It was time to go home – back on the train.May’s comment: Lovely day excursion with friends.
