Douglas Diary Fri-Sat 16-17th October 2015
We left my long kennel all neat and tidy ready we hope for the onset of winter. It was a lovely and varied trip, I am exhausted, done so much walking. My bearded one reckons we have travelled over 150 miles and I walked most of it. I am glad they noticed the limp that I had developed in my left front leg which was my way of saying ease up a bit on the walking. As expected it was really boring yesterday lying in the back of my short kennel aka Yeti driving for five hours to get to Eastbourne. In view of my aching limbs this was good. We stopped for lunch at a very nice hotel and I was invited to sit under the table but got nothing. We arrived in Eastbourne as it got dark and we stopped off to visit with friends before getting to our Eastbourne home. When we did arrive, all was looking lovely, our friend Sebastien who stays in our house sometimes when we are away has left it very nice for us.
Now it is Saturday morning and I have just returned from my squirrel hunt, my bearded one likes these excursions to the park as indeed do I. I met many of my kind trying the same squirrel chase game but none of us has managed to catch one yet. I found a ball and played with that when my bearded one kicked it but then it turned out to belong to a big boy from the Labrador tripe and so I gave it back, and because he asked nicely.
As I am now in a domestic environment in our Eastbourne house, away from my long kennel, I will not write so often. As my bearded one explains, I write this diary more for his benefit so that he has a record of our adventures on my long kennel he calls it a log I call in a diary some call it a blog – so who cares.
I will write occasionally while we are still in England so that my friends know where we are and what we are up to but it won’t be every day.
Thank you for following my journey on my long kennel aka Albert and I hope to see you all in person very soon, in the mean time lots of licks Douglas xxx
