Douglas Diary Spring Holidays
Well am I glad we are going nowhere in my long kennel today! Or yesterday for that matter for, after a bright start early morning winter suddenly arrived with a vengeance. You will remember in my summary of yesterday that I said we had experienced the four seasons weather wise? Well, nothing like this, this is the worst we have had and how lucky we are not to have to travel as might have been the case if this was just a few days ago. There are not many long kennels moving today!
We did in fact travel in my short kennel rather a lot yesterday. First, as I suspected we went to Tamworth to go on this big shopping expedition. My long haired one likes doing this, I don’t know exactly what this involves because I am not allowed to go into these shop places with her. Anyway I had a nice long rest all cozy and warm on the back seat of my short kennel, buffeted as it was by the cold wind and the rain.
Second, later in the day we went on another trip in my short kennel to visit my pet’s son James he lives not very far away by short kennel with his family and three of my kind ( not quite so well bred as me) Rocky, Lilly and Oscar. Of these last three Rocky is my BF, the last two are a bit silly but I enjoy my visits to them as they get a lot of doggy chews (treats) and they do not appear to eat them immediately and are not clever at hiding them – I am really good at hunt the chew game and I win a lot. Also I won a game of football against my long haired one, they have a big field to play on. All the humans went out to India for their supper or so they said I spent the evening in my short kennel again.
The weather was so bad last night that we all stayed over and did not get back to my long kennel. This morning, before we left, my bearded one and his son James put a big silver box thing on the top of my short kennel. ( see photo today) this is getting ready for our return to warmer climes. A lot of stuff is coming with us it would appear, I hope I am not going to be put in the box.
