A question of train etiquette


When one is towards the end of a long train journey and tired…

…. and one's slumber is disturbed because the passenger sat opposite has his "music" on so loud the beat is clearly audible through his headphones …

…. and then said passenger removes his deck shoes to expose his hot and smelly feet…

….one is entitled to lick those feet, don't you think…?

(Between you and me, I suspect even Gail agrees. She might have said "NO Bertie don't do that" but something about her tone of voice told me she didn't really mean it.)

PS We were returning from a few days in Nottingham, checking up on Human Granny. Delighted to report that she is doing GRRREAT!

  1. First, so glad Human Granny is doing well. Second, keep your shoes on if you don't want me licking your feet. Seriously, you think the train floor mig be cleaner than my licks? I think not. I consider it doing your stinky feet a favor, buddy.

  2. Feets always need to be licked. Kinda like legs. I luv when it are shorts season - more legs tolick.

  3. One of life's little pleasure is having a dog lick your feet, not that I've been lucky enough to receive such attention for a while. The weather this summer hasn't exactly been suitable for bare feet! Great to hear that HG is doing well!

  4. Hurrah for HG!! We think if peeps take off their shoes or even have their hands down low that it is permissible to lick them.

  7. Great news about HG. Give her nose pokes and head cocks from us.

    Our rule around here is "No feet if you don't know the human, but faces are fair game."

  17. Bertie - The only place you shouldn't lick strangers feet is on the London Underground.

  18. Howdy Bertie. Smelly feet? Well worth a lick we reckon especially if it makes him turn his music down. Poor fella will probably be deaf in his old age. So glad to hear your Granny is doing well. We love your header photo too! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  21. Bertie you licked some strangers stinky feet. Guess that was a clue that someone needed some help in freshening up. We are glad that Human Granny is doing well in her new care home.
    Thanks for being a friend

  23. I have never licked feet. Arran is quite partial to it though. But I agree, I don't see a problem with it. Much like I'm sure it is fine to beg for fellow diners food in restaurants.

    I'm So pleased to hear hg is doing so well!
