Greetings from Nottingham (er, burp...!)

Well I want you to know that Gail and I arrived safely in Nottingham. As usual we're staying with lovely, kind Janet, and I am having a fine old time so far.

Yesterday, while Gail was visiting HGY at the care home and helping her to write some Christmas cards, I accompanied Janet and her friend Steve for a drink at the Victoria.

Gosh it's a splendid place, the 'Vic', a proper 'local' with great beer (so I'm told) and a warm, friendly atmosphere.

I was so happy to be taken there. Everyone made a big fuss of me and it was all very jolly.

I really did not want to leave.

And later I begged Janet not to tell Gail that Steve had to carry me home.

It had absolutely nothing to do with the beer. Honest!

And no, this is not a picture of me 'sleeping it off'.


  1. that sounds like the perfect place for a pup... maybe therefore such places are called pub?

  2. Sounds a great place for a doggy to visit. Have a fun Christmas- nose licks and love from Moth xx

  3. MOLMOL Bertie the visual of you with a pint in your paw was too funny. I'm sure your exhaustion was all about the car trip and new places. Thank goodness Steve was the DBC (designated Bertie carrier).
    We hope Gail found HG doing well and they had a nice visit
    Hugs madi your bfff
