Mummy took us to tea at Ampersand Hotel – we’ve been there for drinks before so we know they are dog-friendly – though only in the drawing-room and reception – not the restaurants.
Georgie and I took our places under the table – our usual place.
We were both sitting quietly when the carollers broke into the next song and caused quite a racket. They were hitting some really high-pitched sounds … So I thought I’d join in too.
Mummy went SHHHH! Told me I had to stop howling.
Howling? What about the carollers?
Charlie is a five month old cockapoo who lives in our neighbourhood – and they were dog-sitting him. Somehow we think he’s going to feature in our lives – quite a bit.
Georgie – he’s not so keen on Charlie. Me, it only bothers me when he’s in my territory.
This is all three of us under the table – all looking up at Mummy hoping she will share her scones. I assure you George is under the table – he’s so dark you can’t see him.
Here he is! And Charlie was just chilling out wearing his Christmas jumper. Here we are in the hotel lobby. Looked like we were hiding from that guy coming towards us on the right – he’s scary looking.May’s comment: I forget which carol it was but Darcy became excited as the carollers were hotting high pitch notes. 🙂 She got up from her lying down position, wagged her tail and started to howl – much to my embarrassment! But the carollers thought it was funny and so did the other guests. This was particularly so because I had told them over the phone when making the reservation that Darcy had dined in many restaurants and very well-behaved. I did not mention George thinking they would hardly notice him.
And then along came Charlie – we had three dogs! Oops!
