Watch it. Woof it. Work it.

So Gail and I are back in Nottingham again to check up on how Human Granny is settling back into her care home after her time in hospital. The good news is she's doing perhaps better than expected and when we saw her last night she even thought to ask after my paws!

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day for the long train ride down the East Coast line.
While Gail was enjoying the window view of the winter scenery, I was conducting important sentry duty in the aisle.

After all, these days one is instructed to keep an eye out and report if anything amiss on the train.

The slogan is:
See it. Say it. Sort it.

Although I think my version is better:
Watch it. Woof it. Work it.

 A man towing a most enormous suitcase got on at Kirkcaldy (the name of the town has the usual unnecessary number of letters in its Gaelic version) and he apologised profusely to me for disturbing me as he passed down the carriage.

You do meet the nicest people on the train.


  1. oh I can not wait to ride on a train da furst time of my life... and I hope I will meet people with good manners too like that man...

    There are some great folks out and about, Bertie lad. Majority, I would say.

    Glad to hear HGY is doing well - makes your trip that bit more worth the making! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. Bertie - One day you will have yo go for a long walk at Lunan Bay. Probably the best beach on the East Coast and very quiet.

    Nothing like a visit from a Bertie to cheer up a human - of any age.

  4. Nice to hear that your Granny is doing well. Hope that continues for her and the family.

    We wish we could take a train ride too -it looks like a lot of fun.

  9. Great news Bertie. Not many on the train?

    We used to let Dogs on trains in Australia too people could buy a ticket for them but now it is only the ever hard working Guide Dogs.

  10. Oh, we are so glad Human Granny is okay.

    Love the saying. We say, Bark it, Wag it, Be it.

    I home from an exhausting trip to the States. Owe you a proper thank you note for the fabulous journals & pencils! Xo

  11. It must be such a relief for you and Gail that Human Granny is doing well.
    I've never been on a train, or a bus - we're not allowed on public transport here.

  12. Glad Granny is doing well. We wish we could ride trains.

  13. We are sure that all the travellers felt very safe with you inspecting all the passengers and their luggage. Terriers know a suspicious character.
