In safe hands...

Gail and I returned home from Skye last night, and I shall be issuing a detailed report on the field trip course in a a day or so.

But first I want to issue a huge, massive, great big THANK YOU to Gail's well balanced and surefooted boss Ali.
What a splendid lady.

I am even prepared, on this one occasion, to disregard this blog's unwritten rule banning advertising, product placement etc. and say too that Aigle neoprene wellies are clearly the business!


  1. Now, Bertie, that's the way it should be done--always! Carried across and NOT dunked in cold mountain streams.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  2. Ditto Scotsmad. Water and furs do not mix. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly.

  3. Bertie, good to see you had the staff well trained mate.
    No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  4. Hari Om
    Ah well-ye see... as one who is an 'Ali' also (mid name) and knowing it to likely be short for Alison, I can tell you that it means 'noble'... and this is most certainly a noble act!!!

    Am observing, Bertie dear, that the 'no hat' option may have been taken? Looking forward to the full report! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. Bertie - You clearly have everyone well trained !

  6. Saves from having to get your twinkly toes wet....good thing you are not a Great Dane :)

  7. we cant wait to hear your stories. those wellies sound great, even though our mum only wears her hunter wellies in the city they always crack

    urban hounds

  8. Clearly a fine lady who appreciates a fine WFT

    Gus n Teka

  9. Well I thank Ali too for coming to your rescue.....BUT BERTIE it is obvious she recognized your royal standing so it is only proper to carry you across the stream...or lay out a water proof red carpet which I doubt she had.
    I missed you, Gail and especially your wagging tail
    Hugs madi your bfff

  10. Bertie, looks like a near miss. Your adventure walkies are getting edgy.


  11. Looks like you had a fascinating and highly productive trip. I can't wait to learn all about it!

  12. Oh Bertie, I surely thought that you had to manage things under your own power at Skye. How was it you needed assistance?


  13. Good fur YOU...Bertie... you got across the WET and COLD stream.. with DRY PAWS...

    Excellent proof of your TRAINING TECHNIQUES.

  14. Hari OM and HOOROOOO youuuu twooo - just jumping in here to say can't access the page just out which reveals some secret mission.... has it been bugged, gremmelled or indeed 'ghosted'...?????

    Anxiously waiting................... xx

    1. I accidentally pressed the wrong button. You'll have to wait until tomorrow! Cheers, Gail.

  15. Can't wait to see your fieldwork hat
    Benny & Lily

  16. We can't wait to hear all about your trip Bertie. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  17. Very jealous of your trip to Skye- I love it!

  18. To paraphrase an old song "If it wisnae fur HER wellies where would you be..." so three cheers to Alison for keeping your paws dry.


  19. Bertie,
    You are a loved little wirey dog. Your Mommie's boss saved you from having wet feet, which aren't fun.

  20. Of course, Bertie, you should never get your paws wet. What a look that would be! I'm sure that short flight over the stream was most enjoyable!
    Pippa :)
