First 24 hours at Inshriach

On arrival Thursday evening:

But Gail, you told me there wasn't going to be another dog at Inshriach this year. So just what is Jamie's border collie Hemp doing here?

Friday morning:

And then you said he's going home today but he's still here Gail!

And gosh, Hemp is such a poser.

Ok I'll sit nicely for the group photo, but only so long as you absolutely promise he really is going home after lunch.

Friday afternoon:

So you are quite sure Hemp is now on the train back to Perth?

Phew. Finally I can  relax and enjoy my weekend break.


  1. Oh Bertie, that was very naughty of you to bark at Hemp like that. Sometimes you just have to share the limelight for a while, and Hemp looks a nice little chap to share it with. Never mind, he went home and left you to take centre stage. I hope if we ever meet up, you won't bark at me like that - I'd be quite frightened !

  7. MOLMOLMOL Bertie you sure let Hemp know who was boss of him and that he was raining on your Solo Dog Parade! I truly understand I like being the only cat about too. My sis and bil were here yesterday and for once I didn't smell Mia and Frisco on them....I didn't even hissy at my sissy.

  8. Was Gail getting Fake News? It's obvious how that can affect you!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  9. Your sure told him! How disappointing not to be the ONLY dog. At least he's gone now, and you can soak up all the attention.

  10. Oh Bertie, that jumper is AMAZING!!!

  11. Bertie that jumper of yours is absolutely spiffing. Hemp would have been so jealous of your jumper and your intellectual superiority. He was posing just to try to keep up with your lofty standards.

  12. looks like such a cozy happy place love the jumper

  13. The nerve of Gail, letting another dog crash YOUR trip!

  14. Bertie, we are SO happy that your poorly paws are feeling the betterment!
