A one-way street...

We went to visit our friends Molly and Neil in Macduff this weekend.

I am always being told by Gail that good manners are very important when staying with friends.

I asked Gail if this is the case, even when your friends' lurcher, Maisie, is licking clean your own food bowl.

Apparently it is. And if you're thinking I'm standing there sulking in the next photo, you would be correct.

Later, I waited quietly beside Molly, thinking she might be polite and make amends for Maisie's bad behaviour by offering me some cake.

But I waited in vain.

It seems to me this good manners thing is a one-way street.


  1. ha! yes it often is!!! but we love your friend, the mama has a heart for lurchers (probably because she knows now for what this pups were used in da old times LOL)

    Crikey, Bertie lad... goose and gander and all that, eh?! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. OMDs Bertie come stay with me!! I would never ever in 87 years dare to eat your food out of your bowl. GEEEZZZ I guess the saying
    'their, house...their rules'. Applies here.

    Hugs Cecilia

  4. You are remembering your good manners, Bertie, and Maisie and Miss Molly need to brush up on theirs. Just sayin'

  5. Well it is clear that you have been properly raised with good manners Bertie

  6. That was nice of you to be a good friend and let Maisie clean your bowl for you. We do hope she reciprocates and lets you lick her bowl too.

  7. OMD, that's not fair at ALL. I hope you got to lick Maisie's bowl later.

  8. Oh my...we can't believe Molly didn't even share a crumb of her cake to help make amends for Maisie's behavior!

  9. My my, you are a super polite house guest to have to put up with all of THAT nonsense!

  10. We think Maisie is looking VERY smug!!!

  11. Well, here we all clean each other's bowl. It is like a musical bowl event as we circle from one to another:)

    We would have thought that Gail would have given you a taste of cake!!!

  12. Holy cow patties Bertie! I can't believes Maisie licked YOUR bowl! yuck. I can tells you, you are the most gentle of Gentlemen my furiend! I wouldn't have been so polite, and maybe would have started a ruckus! That's just the way I roll....

    pees: I hopes you got some cake eventually....

  13. Oh Bertie - that's just awful! My human says that if you had been a Labrador, then they wouldn't have got a look in!
    If we ever get to meet up, don't worry, I'll teach you some of the tricks of the (Labrador) trade, then you won't be deprived ever again!
