It is so difficult, this dating lark.
I've told you about Addy haven't I...? The very wonderful lady bulldog from Illinois who will be accompanying me to the Blogville Valentine Dance next month. Oh I so want to impress her, and what better way than to arrange for some truly special transport to the party? Problem is, between you and me, I do not know Addy that well, and I'm a bit unsure what she would like best.
Well I have been out and about in Aberdeen, and I have come up with a range of options. Please, readers, please, do help me here, and vote using the readers' poll (right hand column, below the header photo) to tell me which you think I should choose. Bear in mind that Addy is not a 'girlie girl' dog and we do know that she will not be wanting something all pink and sparkly....
Option 1: The Smart Car (the obvious choice for a Smart dog, no?)
Option 2: The Bicycle (although I am not sure if Addy would favour the green alternative. Somehow I suspect not...)
Option 3: The Oil Man's Audi (I must say I have checked this out carefully and it is most comfortable. Vorsprung durch Technik and all that.)
Option 4: The Hearse (for some reason Gail tried to deter me from including this, but I thought it looked distinguished, whilst also roomy and practical. And remember that Addy is a BIG girl.)
Option 5: The Tank (we would make a memorable entrance - and it would also come in handy should I need to fight off any competition)
Option 6: The Ambulance (wouldn't it be fun to set the siren off and zoom past all the traffic on the way to the party? We'd be first to all the treats!)
Option 7: The Cargo Vessel (plenty of space here too, and guaranteed stability should the going get rough....)
Option 8: The Magic Carpet (assuming we can conjure up enough lift to hold both my weight AND Addy's...)
Please do help me out by voting. The poll closes on Sunday 5th February.
And don't whisper a word to Addy. I want it to be a surprise.
