Gosh Gail took about a squillion photos of our big trip down south to celebrate Human Grandad's 90th birthday. But she says I have to select only a dozen, maximum, and that I do not have much time on the computer to tell you all about the trip 'cos she is super busy this week.
Well here goes. Rush rush rush.
Of course we travelled to Nottingham by railway. As you know I am by now a seasoned train traveller.
But I bet you didn't know that the train company supplies me with my own personalised crisps.
A shame that they can't spell, but what's a dog to do?
Oh, Gail is saying to remember it's "not all about me" and that people will want to see some pictures of the Birthday Boy.
Well here he is, together with Human Granny of course (they have been together for fifty five years).
Do you like his birthday cake?
I did sample a wee morsel myself and am pleased to report that it was just delicious.
Oh and here we all are, out for the promised birthday walk by the River Trent
The next day I went for a longer walk by the river with Gail, and contemplated swimming out to greet a swan.
But then I dipped my paw in the muddy water and thought the better of it, remembered that I am not a water dog, and retreated back to terra firma and the nice broad grassy path.
The perfect place for a terrier to tear around.
In the grandparents' house, I of course made myself thoroughly at home. So many comfy spots to chose from.
I was able to read a few blogs on the journey back.
We changed trains at Edinburgh again.
I think Edinburgh might just be the dog-friendliest city in the world. We had a hour to walk around the city centre and if Gail's camera battery had not run out, I would have been able to show you pictures of all the many kind folk who stopped to admire me and give me a friendly pat as I performed an early evening promenade up and down the Royal Mile and Princes Street (still no trams).
So many happy memories. Can we go back to Nottingham soon Gail?
PS I would like to assure my marvellous Aunties Martha and Bailey Basset that I also gave ninety barks for Human Grandad. Unfortunately, Gail seems to think that on the train between Doncaster and Durham was not the right place to do it, and that the rude gentleman who we overheard saying, as the train pulled out of Newcastle station, "oh I hoped the dog would be getting off there" might have had some justification for his comments....
