If that Julian Assange chappie can post private emails on the internet, then so can I!

A 'source' has shown me a certain communication between Gail and her friend Fran├žoise.

I am so hurt and offended.

It is in the public interest to expose lies and hypocrisy, is it not? I mean she's always telling me that I'm totally adorable and the whole world thinks so. And then she goes and writes this.

Hi Fran├žoise 

Thanks very much for the lovely roast dinner - a relatively rare treat for me. 

Thanks also for in inviting me to the Highland Weekend. Yes, I would be interested. But I would first like to be reassured that the rest of the group are 'dog tolerant'. Bertie does tend to get over-excited when there are lots of new people about. When I had my friend Angela and her fellow musicians - a Dutch wind quintet - staying at the cottage in Torridon for a few days, it all worked fine, and he eventually calmed down, but this was an exceptionally relaxed and dog loving group! I don't want to spend my time worrying that he's annoying everyone, nor would I leave him at home.

On another subject. King Lear at the Belmont is on 3rd February. I am going to ask a couple of other friends and book tickets. Would you like to be included?




  1. Bertie - What sort of person would not be overcome with joy at the thought of spending a weekend with you ? Maybe you could practice your singing? It would break the ice.

  2. We have to agree with Angus - who would not be thrilled by your handsome self?

    Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

  3. We suggest getting a solicitor and suing your pawrent for alienation of affections if she does not take you. How does that sound? Totally crackers to us!

    Love, Dozer and Cooper

  4. What do you want to bet she tries to leave you out of the King Lear evening too, Bertie?

    Give her the cold shoulder for a few days, that ought to fix it all right up.


  5. Bertie - she's not worried about YOUR behavior, she's worried about the behavior of the other humans toward you. You know those dog-intolerant people? Have you met them? They don't like sniffing, or kisses or dog hair? We have no use for them.

    -Gizmo, Bart and Ruby

  6. Bertie, as well as intercepting emails we suggest phone tapping!
    Now don't worry about being sued - we will blame a certain newspaper.
    Clearly Gail will have to think again - she should be asking you how you feel about spending a weekend with humans!
    It is very possible that they will annoy you - goodness some humans are a pain.............!
    Priorities Gail!

    ps we would also expect you to be going to the theatre too!

  7. BErtie
    Whats up with all of that?? And...she is worried about your behavior?? I think you should be concerned bout hers!! LOL


  8. You Bertie? Annoying! As if!
    Shocking. You should record her phone calls next. Who knows what you'll uncover. At least you get to go though!
    I is very shy around new people, so they all think I very totally good. But when I get to know them I is Crackers too.

  9. That she could even THINK that other people would be annoyed at your enthusiastic welcomes and humourous antics.....doesn't bear thinking about.

    If the group isn't dog tolerant, they can stay home!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  10. Hm, this is not right, Bertie! Gail, shame!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  11. We suggest that rottrover has the correct end of the stick. Gail is trying to make sure that YOU will be comfortable and clearly states she will NOT go without you. She wants to make sure your senstive spirit is not subjected to interaction with humans who are too thick to appreciate you.

    You really don't want to go to King Lear at the theatre. It's very long and full of sound and fury. If you want to give it a try, rent one of the excellent videos. [Paul Schofield's performance is one of mama's favorites.] Much less noticable if you drift into a gentle sleep in the middle of the performance, which we're pretty sure you will do. Lord knows, we've slept through hours of Shakespeare.

  12. Darling boy, can you hear us clapping? YOU ARE INDEED A TRUE TERRIER....... A CRACKER DOG( well really from the moment we met you we knew you were but we just had to help bring it out) IMAGINE the joy we had reading that you have been described as a tad overexcited(overexcited?PAH you have not seen a thing until you see us answering the door bell...)And we are thrilled to know that indeed our book has been working...We are proud to say that you have graduated to the next book we have written The Adolescent Wire Fox Terrier and how to get your PLs heavily drinking Love and kisses Your proud teachers

  13. Bertie, peeps must take you as they find you, your a terrier. Mom has called me a terroist sometimes, Gail does say "nor would I leave him at home" so I would shock her and be your adoring self ;)

  14. What? You have no say about the kind of people she exposes you to? Perhaps you should write a letter expressing your requests of the two-leggeds that will be included in the weekend festivities. I think "prone to dropping biscuits and bacon" is a priority.

    Your pal,


  15. Bertie my boy. Indeedy a worrying woofileak. First. Noted Gail didn't say "thanks for a lovely roasty dinner for me AND Bertie" to her friend. Then to falsely claim you being to over excited and eventually calming down...What a whopper. Wink* She and we know just how over the top cracker do we can be eh rather than a smidgen annoying. That group have got it coming to 'em I would say Bertie.

    As for the theatre... go go go!!! Worth it for the popcorn under the seats.

    Wiry wags and kisses your Uncle Eric xxxx

  16. Great supportive post! After reading this, I am taking you a little more seriously as an insane cracker dog.
