Not that I'm boasting...

Gosh, it's been a busy few days!

First off, Gail drove me down to Edinburgh, where I had a most pleasant visit with YAM-Aunty and her father. I know that YAM-Aunty has only one functional arm at the moment, but it wasn't wrong to ask her for treats, was it? I mean I would have been quite happy with the quantity of treats you can fit in one human hand...

After Edinburgh we continued south to just across the Border to meet up with Gail's friends Janet, Helen and Sue, and we have spent the last couple of days exploring the beautiful Northumbrian coastal path.

I walked about ten miles both yesterday and the day before (not that I'm boasting or anything).

I can't wait to go for another long walk today  although between you and me, I shall not be offering to swap places with the spaniel I met waiting for the bus in Craster - he  had just accompanied his owner on a twenty mile run down from Bamburgh Castle...


  1. 10 miles?? LUCKY! I do about 3 miles every day - wish I could get momma to walk longer with me.

  2. How nice that you could pop in to visit Yam and her dad. It looks like you had a fun time on the beach too.

    Bertie lad, the father and I thoroughly enjoyed your visit along with Gail; brightened our week no end! Glad you have been able to enjoy the beach... hugs and wags YAM-aunty xxx

  4. Sounds like a wonderful break....and you were INCLUDED--even better!

  5. We are so happy to see that you got to visit with Aunty Yam - we wish we could do that too. Great to see her smiling despite that cast dilemma. If she can type as well as she is doing on the blogs, she can manage a one-handed treat for you too:)

    10 Miles - that's pawesome. We do about 3-4 a day when it isn't too hot or icy.

  6. We think you brought joy to YaYa so it is A-OK for you to ask for treats! Maybe you can give me and Stanley some tips on how to not be so bored when our pawrents ride their bikes without us?? They are doing a 50-mile ride Wednesday (weather willing as it was cancelled twice now) so we will be really bored then! Please send tips ASAP!

    Your Pals Who Are Checking In,

    Murphy & Stanley
