Safe and sound. And a reminder...

So Gail flew to Amsterdam for work last week. She was gone A WHOLE DAY AND A NIGHT!

I stayed again with neighbours Yvonne and Neil. These days, what with all the terrorism stuff on the news, I do tend to fret about Gail’s safety when she travels outside of Scotland. But I think I managed to hide my worries. I even sent her a reassuring text message and picture. It read:

“Well Gail, I decided since I’m guest of honour here I would sneak into Yvonne’s lounge & sleep on my favourite chair! Bertie, 3 am this morning …..”

Oh but I was blithe as a midge on a damp still day in the Highlands when Gail returned home all safe and sound. I even forgave her buying a big chunk of Gouda cheese for Yvonne and failing, once again, to bring home a gift for me.

PS There is still time to enter my Blogville Pawlympics event. I've already received loads of splendid entries, but for sure there are yet more of you who would secretly love to climb a Scottish mountain, and this is your golden opportunity! For full details, click here. The deadline is 31st July.


  1. I'm glad your Gail is back with that big piece of cheese... maybe you can get something too beclaws she furgots your gift?

  2. You FORGAVE her, Bertie ... And she brought you NOTHING?????? OMD! Mum always tells me how WFT's are saints. Now I know they are, aye??

    Bertie, I love that you know which places are 'home-away-from home" enough to feel comfy on the furniture... and Gail may wish to take note that you DO have homes you could turn to ... you know... just if in case... Gouda??? YUM... but you at least oughtta have had a pup-sized one I reckon. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. Oh I finks I would be requesting a pressie fur all the worrying you did ;) Glad your Momma is home safe and sound.

  5. BOW WOW, cheese sounds real good to me right now...

  6. She gave cheese to someone else and nothing for you. That is a fail! We are glad that Gail made it home safe and sound.

  7. We can't believe Gail is so rude as to leave you overnight and then NOT bring you a gift to make up for her poor decision!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  8. Bertie - We came across this in the Washington Times. Looks just like you. Perhaps you should get a copy to read the next time you're left alone ?

  9. there is a rule that no mom should ever could home without a treat :)

  10. My woofy opinion is that she should at least have brought you a squeaky wooden shoe toy!

  11. I fink ya shoulda gotten some of dat cheeze!

  12. Glad you are both home safe, in your own house....even without cheese.

  13. We are glad Gail has made it back safe and sound, although she may deserve a few demerits for not bringing you back a souvenir block of cheese!

  14. Bertie! At least she came home! Eventually. Though that looks like a very nice place to be king of!


  15. It's just not a fun time to travel. Glad you are home safely, Gail.

    Great use of the chair, Bertie!
