Well, they bought this for me to wear. I think it is my going away outfit. I don’t mind the color but don’t you think my bum looks rather large? Never mind, they tell me I only have to wear it when I am travelling in my short kennel aka Yeti. Apparently, this is the law whatever that means. I do know it means I am off on my holidays. They have told me we are off to England and this means my long kennel aka Albert and lots of ducks and stuff. The journey to England will take probably a couple of days, I sleep on the back seat of my short kennel. I like that.
I have suspected for a few days that something is afoot. There has been quite a lot of boxes leaving my house and being stuffed into my short kennel along with quite a few bottles of stuff they Seem to like.
We actually left my home in Moclinejo on Sunday morning after a big family breakfast at Bar Reyes, I was quite excited, I said goodbye with lots of licks to my little humans and their carers aka My bearded one and long haired one’s young who were staying on in our home for a few weeks more and so, off we went. It was very hot outside but nice and cool in my short kennel.
After about five hours (and a few pit stops for you know what) we arrived at Aranjuez an historic town where we have stayed before. It is just south of Madrid. On arrival it was very hot and I took them for a much needed walk by the river and alongside the palace into which I am not allowed to go – not even the gardens – because I am a dog. They had supper in a shady restaurant, I sat under their table as usual and not a crumb fell in my direction. I did however experience ice cubes for the first time which my long haired one gave me in an ash tray. I enjoyed them very much. I had my supper, usual stuff, in our hotel room (called Hostel Castilla) which was very nice. Then we all went to sleep.
