Quick update - train, grandparents, science experiments

Wow I had such an incredibly great time on the train on Thursday! I haven't time to tell you all about it just now as I'm busy entertaining human Granny and Granddad. But I thought I'd just show you a couple of photos.

The ticket collector was especially friendly, although Gail says that perhaps the woman in the pink shirt is a teeny bit jealous of all the attention I'm getting...

Oh and about my Blogville Picnic in the Bark water-related science experiments (see previous post). Just to make it clear that I'll be reporting on the results after I get back home to Aberdeen - Tuesday at the earliest. Meanwhile, please do keep all your excellent comments and suggestions coming in!


  1. My son will be in Scotland at the end of this month--Edinburgh, though, not Aberdeen. He's timing his trip around upcoming rail strikes!

  2. Have a Grrreat time Bertie we will be waitin for your return!

    woos, Tessa

  3. We still can't believe you got to go on a train. If we ever did that the rail line would close down.. Listen can you do me a favor? Try not to mention Count Dracula again When Archie saw the Castle and heard about Bram Stoker he fainted... dead out.. from nerves.. and as he was going down he said BUT BERTIE LIVES NEAR DRACULA... I'll work on this but just saying... Love Ags

  4. So your sayin that givin Gail her Chill Pill made YOUR train trip MUCH more ENJOYABLE fur YOU RIGHT?????

    We all know that every good experiment takes some time to come to a Published Set of Results.

    BESIDES.. Waiting fur several days.. just keeps the Picnic Excitement Going!!!
    I can NOT wait to see your final report!!! Enjoy your vacation!!!

  5. Yeah, she's definitely jealous. Probably wants the Ticket Collector to scratch her under the chin.

    Look forward to your results.

  6. Wow, that train ride looks super fun! You're so lucky! I bet you wanted to run over and give that woman a big ol' lick!

  7. Have's a super time on your trip and we see ya when you get home!

  8. Of course you got all the attention, Bertie. You were the cutest passenger on the train!!

  9. hey Bertie,

    Lucky pup! The train ride looks like so much fun! I don't think I would be allowed on a train here in the U.S. Bummers! The Conductor seems very nice. Under the neck scratches rock! :-> I think the woman in pink wishes she could be cuddling you, too. You are very lovable!

    Can't wait to read your results! In the meantime, have a wonderful visit with your Grandma and Grandpa!


  10. That is so cool you are allowed on the train. Not here

  11. That lady in the pink shirt does look a bit put out!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  12. You got to be on a train? How awesome is that!!

  13. That is brilliant Bertie, our Mom is going to find out if dogs are allowed on the train she gets to Weymouth and she might take one of us to meet our cousin Henry another Schnauzer. You have the ticket collector in the palm of your paw by the looks, Dex & lou x

  14. Second class Bertie? You deserve so much more... I'll have a word with Gail the meanie...

  15. Bertie; Dat lady in pink looks like she swallowed a pickle. Maybe if the conductor guy rubbed her tummy she would have cheered up. BOL! Give your Grands a lick from us.

  16. You're not just allowed to ride the train, but also to go into the dining car?! Wow, what a civilized country you live in. Enjoy the rest of your vacation.

  17. We think we should move to your country. They really know how to treat a dog properly!
