"Squirty Bertie" protests

It's not nice is it, when you are suffering a bad dose of the runs and your human just goes around making stupid rhyming 'jokes' ...

And then, no soon as you're better, she goes off for a couple of days cycling in the Far North of Scotland with her pals (who, frankly, from the evidence of this photo taken outside the Invershin Hotel, appear to be showing the effects of having ridden all the way from Land's End in the last two weeks...)

And as if that weren't bad enough, it appears that she enjoyed the company of other dogs at a lunch stop in the Crask Inn, north of Lairg....

Then the final straw. She says that on the way back home she saw this porker in a field and his black patches reminded her of me....


  1. Berries,

    These sequential indignities make us think you should cross the pond and come live with us. Between November 30 and June 1, the hurry canes are all gone. Also it's kind of flat so you can try out a new kind of exploration.

    Wiry love,

    Jake and JH

  2. Talk about being kicked when you're down! Hope your tummy is feeling better and she at least gives you a great treat.

    We're impressed they cycled from Land's End to north of Scotland because it's up hill all the least on the map.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  3. Life is so cruel and unkind. We must devise a plan for revenge. Or demand extra treat for a few days. Hope you are feeling better!

  4. We glad to hear Bertie that you are done with the poop-a-ria's.

    Oh yes, life is never fair but I agree with Finn, REVENGE! If you need back-up help just give us a call and we can all plot something out.

    Oh yeah, and saying that rotund piggie looked like you.... DOUBLE REVENGE!!

    Lily Belle & Muffin

  5. Bertie mate, we think you should have another 'squirty' right in the middle of the kitchen floor. It might not seem quite to funny then to you know who. Take care Squirty, er sorry, Bertie. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  6. I am really quite shocked at these unkind comments on your Mum's part. Especially about the PIG, oh ruder than rude.

    Hop a plane for wherever Jake of Florida lives and take him up on his offer. See how long you last there, Buddy,and if you need to move on you are welcome to come to Minniesnowda where its gonna be pretty cold, pretty soon. Bring your long underwear. . .


  7. Oh Bertie, I too have suffered the indignity of those kind of nick names. Peeps think they're sooo clever, embarassing, really.
    Keep you chin up, and give em' the cold shoulder for a while, that will teach em'.



  8. Oh Bertie we hope you are better. Naughty mummy saying a piggy reminded her of you. Have a great Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  9. Man Bertie, she sure has some kind of nerve!! Addi says come and stay with us, Addi would never treat you like that!!

    Jazzi and Addi

  10. We're astounded Gail didn't stay home to soothe your fevered brow & spoon feed you chicken soup. More training would appear to be indicated.

    Mama has always loved pigs, a most intelligent species good at getting their own way, so we don't see the insult in the comparison.

    That's it for left handed typing for now.

    Jed & Abby

  11. Hope your hiney is better Bertie. We can't believe she left you!!! Is that a cow pig?
    Benny & Lily

  12. Bertie,
    Wow, you should come over here. You could come up to Ga after a couple of months in Flordia. Your Mommy shouldn't use such unkind words with you. Let us know when your comming. We'll save you some space on the bed, and if you get here in time; then, you can go to Sally Ann's earthdog events.
    Sally Ann and Andy

  13. Humans!! We hope you're feeling better, Bertie.

    Bart and Ruby

  14. Gee, that Gail of yours sounds like she needs to be given a lesson in appreciation. You don't sound appreciated at all. I mean really, to think of calling you names and comparing you to an oinker. The gall of that!

  15. WELLLLLLL I NEVER...really darling implying that you look LIKE THAT PIG... hoo I almost fainted just repeating the word..... Really nothing more to say about that one.. however we are THRILLED that you have found a job as a leader...( your previous post) you wee chappie.. Really how did they all think they could manage without you? And of course this will lead to being able to be at the office... SHe will see that she simply CAN NOT work wihtout you.. ALl you have to do is lay low for a few days and then when they all say how lovely and well behaved you are LET IT RIP.. hee hee go for the cookie jar, do zoomies well we don't need to tell you how to do it.. We have been having a lovely summer.. SO far Archie has stolen a bag of bulkie rolls and ate 5 out 6, yesterday he stole the top to her sandwich( right off of the table It was FABUOLOUS) and I of course have been digging my way around Boston..... We are going to help PL1+2 campaign for hte Presidential election We heard them say we might be moving if the wrong person wins(maybe we can try for Scotland) Love and ksises your A+A

  16. Bertie come south and play with us. We don't disappear on biking trips and we would never ever compare you to a pig. We would share our bones and toys with you too.

    Molly, Taffy, Monty and Winnie.
