We have arrived – we know this place well.Awaits us were personalised doggy bowls – for Charlie, George,Mine, Lucca’s, Stanley’s …This is Bailey who is feeling a bit mucky after his walk in Hampstead Heath.P.S. We did that once and we got rather mucky too so not a good idea to walk.
And we met Crumble again – haven’t seen him Nor Puddles for a long timeWe had a long table with our cockapoo friends and their mummies and daddies who were loving it all.
Here’s Stanley having a cuddle.
At the next table was Mack and Maisie – they were served lunch before ours so of course we went begging No luck with Paul, so we went to Lisa Nothing. I kept waiting. Jaffa gave up and Georgie came to help.I went to Jocelyn and see if I could use my charmInstead I got a hug While Lucca sat patiently with his daddy Well, he was rewarded when Santa came along and gave him treatI soon realised I wasn’t having any luck here so I went in search at other tables Come on, Jaffa, follow me!But Jaffa deserted me and I was left on my own – in search of kind, giving humans who would take pity on poor hungry meThis is more like itHumans who delights in my anticsAfter all that I went back to Mummy to say I’m back! I’ve had enough. Lucca had a different strategyHe hung around the table to get bits and piecesAnd licked his lips after helping himself to butter dishes! Little Jaffa was getting lots of hugs tooEveryone thinks she looks like a mini Lucca
While Miuccia was checking out what the others were doingAnd Dante was obsessed with a tennis ball and came back to his daddy to let him know he’s still aroundMack and Maisie watching from the next table with amusement what was going on
As for George … well, he showed his old self againHe came to the table just as food was being served – and before anyone could blink, he grabbed an entire piece of steak off a plate and hid under the table to chomp it up in three seconds!Oh George, the humans laughed and thought it was hilarious, but Mummy was appalled …
It has to be said that we think the humans had a good time. They sure took a lot of photos of us. Here they are – taking photos of us all afternoon! LOL!!!Me and Lucca – posing for our photo.May’s comment: Gaucho Hampstead’s Doggy Sundays are often well attended but this was the Christmas Sunday. It was a surreal experience for many first-timers – to see about 40 dogs in one restaurant – wandering freely while the humans sat at tables to eat. What made it special is to see how many smiles it brought on. We all had a lovely afternoon and we all smiled because of our dogs.
