Hello, I'm on the train...

This is so much more fun than just having to sit there watching Gail reading a book.

We're travelling back up to Aberdeen, after a week down in Nottingham with Gail's Mum and Dad. (And yes Stella, that is where the Nottingham Forest footballers come from. And Robin Hood too, of course. And yes Max, you're dead right about Grannies being a soft touch when it comes to food treats! )

Well we saw neither footballers nor outlaws, but we did go on lots of interesting walks.

Some times I was being chased.

And some times it was me doing the chasing. I can't believe I was being out-paced by Gail's eighty seven year old Dad. Well I suppose he doesn't have to stop and sniff so many things...

The weather was much much much hotter than Aberdeen, so it was kind of Gail to find me a nice cool stream when we went out for a walk in the Peak District.

Back on the train, can you tell whose blog we're looking at? (Hint - a famous New Yorker?)

What a wonderful walk. Wish we were there to sniff along with you.

Hi Hamish
How very cool to be blogging on your laptop on the train!
We trust you were travelling business class.
We loved the picture of you in the stream cooling off your little paws.
Great that your grandparents are so fit. We did think you had lagged quite a bit behind but we guessed you were having a good sniff about.
We love different places to sniff too.
That sounded like a great break for both you and Gail.
Hope you arrive home in Aberdeen soon although we know that is a quite a long journey!

It hasta be Asta on your laptop, Hamish!

About me in the cage, you forget that you live in a civilized country where dogs can ride trains and buses. Here we have to be confined to a cage. Horrible, isn't it? Going to tell my Mom to move us to the British Isles!

Your journey looked most pleasurable and I know you were having a fine time with Gail and the Grandparents.

Now WE are the ones visiting our gramma. She's 85 and we think she sorta likes us. AND she has treats.
