Douglas Diary Summer Holidays 2018
Rellies arrive from Canada.
I am so excited, my bearded one’s sister in law Diane and husband Max who I have known all my life but do not see very often arrive today to stay with me in my Long Kennel. My bearded one went to collect them from East Midlands Airport with the help of his daughter in law Sue who lives very close by. The Rellies are from the Canadian tribe and they came on a flying kennel. I have never been on a flying kennel. Dogs are not allowed Hmpff! In fact they came on three to get here and it took 15 hours and so they were quite tired.
After a quick visit to Brooklet Farm – where my Bearded one’s son and daughter in law live for a welcome cup of tea for them and water for me we drove back to my long kennel in my short kennel, and this journey only takes 40 minutes.
When we arrived back at my long kennel we made plans for the rest of our day and the start of our journey. We decided there was time to get unpacked and settled into my long kennel, have lunch which my long haired one had prepared (for them, I get nothing until the evening) and we can still have just enough time to cruise to Shugborough Hall, one of my favourite places to spend the evening.
It was a lovely afternoon with sunshine all the way and we just kept going until after sunset. We just made it before it got seriously dark. My photo is of Shugborough Hall, the estate of the late Earl of Lichfield now belongs to The National Trust. This is as seen from our mooring.
