I've noticed how humans always seem to be super busy in the run up to going on holiday, so I decided to help out by writing my own packing list.
This is what I came up with:
BERTIE'S LIST pet passport train and ferry tickets insurance documents food and water bowls kibble treats for the train treats for the ferry treats for the hotel treats for when staying with friends extra treats just in case Euros and Swiss Francs to resupply with treats water bottle short lead for town walks stretchy lead for country/mountain walks 'Newcastle Station' harness... snazzy tartan scarf Fair Isle sweater for smart wear waterproof jacket blanket towel muzzle hairbrush and comb toothbrush toothpaste (liver flavoured) present for my Doggy Godmother
I think that will leave plenty of room in Gail's backpack for travel documents, a change of clothes and her own toothbrush (there are some things one doesn't like to share).
So now that's all sorted I'm ready to go.
For some reason Gail has asked me to ask readers to wish her luck with this trip to Switzerland...
We may try to post a photo or two when travelling, but normal blog service is now suspended for the next three weeks.
Hi, I'm Bertie, a wire-haired fox terrier pup. I live with Gail in Aberdeen, Scotland. An old Westie called Hamish used to live here but he died on 18th February 2010 (exactly the same day I was born). People tell me that he used to have a blog and that I have big pawprints to fill. That's a bit too much responsibility for a very young puppy - and anyway, I intend to make my own mark!
(Gail says that Hamish could certainly have taught me a thing or two about marking stuff....)
