A quick hello from Nottingham

So sorry I haven't been around much lately. Gail and I are staying with her elderly parents in Nottingham. The pace of life is slow here, as is the computer connection (and it's Microsoft Windows - yuk!) and I am on strict orders to behave myself impeccably....

But don't worry friends, normal service will resume after New Year when we return to Scotland.

Toodle pip!


  1. Hope you had a great Christmas and will have an even better new year!

  2. Hi Bertie! My mom insists that I tell you that you are just so adorable and that she could hug you alll day!! I agree, except Im a dog and I can't hug. Would it be ok to say I'd like to sniff your butt? Hehe BOL!!!!!


  3. It's good to relax and keep an eye on pops. When you get home you can catch us up on your mischievous behavior

  4. Bertie you look like you have this Christmas sewn up sleeping ;) and you and Grandad look like book ends
    Catch up with you soon
    Happy New Year to all your family
    See Yea George xxx
    PS hope you got to go to the pub this time, did yea :)

  5. Hey Bertie
    Merry Christmas!! I bet they love having you there with them. You are catching up on lots of sleep. We will be anxious to hear all about stuffs when you get home!!
    Happy New Year Bertie

    Your friend

  6. You look so comfortable relaxing by the fire and on your grand-paws slipper.

    It will be your first hogmany soon Bertie, so try not to bark too loudly if a tall dark man brings coal and perhaps (if Gail is really lucky) whiskey to the front door in the wee small hours of New Years Day. It is a strange custom, but I've learnt that humans do strange things sometimes, and this custom is even more strange when the coal is delivered in the middle of the night in the middle of summer where I live - at least you can throw yours on the fire.


  7. Heyya there Bertie Bud...
    I can see you're trying real hard with Grandpa there...lying on his shoes, what could be better?
    Listen bud...Gail is spreading stories about you being rather 'outa control'. I think Maxmom is doing that too (about me). Perhaps we should nip this gossip in the bud, whatya think? Geesh, we're only just starting out in life and they handicap us.
    Cheers now, I'm off to cause havoc in the house. (I see there are a few carpets in Grandpa's house that you could do with a bit of shredding sleeping now, bud!)
    Sending lotsalicks
    ps....Get on that train NOW and get home! We must get back to our havoc creating selves - for the new year! Luvs Toby

  8. Bertie - Always remember there will be no one else who looks after you quite like grandparents !

  11. Every body, including pups, can stand a few days of rest and relaxation. Good for the soul,Bertie, and you and Grandpa seem to get along well in the snooze department.

    Happy 2011 to you, Gail and your family!
