Douglas Diary Friday 23rd October 2015
Well, I had an extra ordinary day yesterday and in my last diary note I did say I would write occasionally if there was anything out of the ordinary on my trip to England this autumn.
This is it, they were clearly up to something: Today I had only a brief walk in the park, hardly time for breakfast and then I was off again, on another walk into town and then We all got on an extremely long kennel with my own humans but there were lots of others. They were all sitting on seats reading papers, I was on the floor with nothing to do and all of a sudden this extremely long kennel started to noisily rock back and forth and I was a bit frightened. I got braver but this lasted for an hour and a half. Then we all got out and do you know there were thousands of humans – so many legs I found it quite difficult to walk without getting tangled with humans. We were in a very noisy place called Victoria! Then we left there and we started to walk for another hour, I enjoyed the smells but was still manoevering around hundreds of legs and there were so many funny moving kennels making a lot of noise, I am not sure I enjoyed that much. They, my own humans, were going to visit a Galłery in a place called The Mall. I was of course not allowed in when we got there but they took it in turns to stay and walk up and down with me, it was quite pleasant in the Mall and I saw where the Queen lives, I did not see her family, I believe they are from the Corgi tribe. Then we had a lovely walk through St James’ park (see photo) and do you know there are all sorts of creatures including Pelicans there and hundreds of squirrels. At one point I am afraid I lost it and had a quick break away from my bearded one’s control for a quick but abortive chase, I sent about six of the buggers up the trees. Then soon we were back in that busy noisy place called Victoria. I went on a moving staircase, wow that was fun, I soon learned that you have to face forward. I did it several times. I did quite a lot of sitting under tables before we got back onto the extremely long kennel and it was really quite late when I got back to my home in Eastbourne. I walked miles and was really tired. I went to sleep and dreamt of all my new experiences. Love Douglas
