A Marathon Blog Today!

Hi Ho Woofers!

Here we are again, Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.

Well, what a day! We were up a little later than normal 'cos Old Two Legs had been making a pig of himself with the shortbread and the fine bottle of malt whisky Alun had presented him with! So, in the end we left home fifteen minutes late!

We will have to issue him with a warning about this lateness, we can't have any slacking!

Down on the beach we spotted a message some Two Legs had left last night!

Wish You Were Here?
I was trying to work out what it said when I tripped up and banged my nose on a bit of wood that had been washed up onto the beach. So, there I was with a sore nose and watery eyes when Miss Snowflake came up and gave me a kiss on the nose 'Just to make it Better'!

A kiss will make it better!
Back home we got served Doggy Scoff, Yuk! Mind you after last nights King Prawns and Plawn Clackers, we still had full tummy's!

OTL got all his gear together and everyone headed for the front door. Holly and I knew we weren't going to get an invitation 'cos they had been talking about visiting Rochester Castle and to be honest, we didn't fancy having a wander around the castle grounds 'cos we wouldn't be allowed off the lead or in the building!

I hate it when a place is anti-dog! 

Rochester Castle.
The Missus and Alun decided they really didn't fancy climbing all over the castle and sneaked off for a wander around the grounds and ended up getting rained on!

OTL, Glynis and Abby stayed inside the castle and kept dry!

OTL was giving Abby some pointers on the camera operation and also composition. Glynis was standing by an arch and OTL showed how just turning the camera at an angle created a 'Fashion Shot'!

Fashion Model!
Abby was trying to take 'secret' pictures of people and of course OTL, so, OTL started taking pictures of her as well!

We won't show you the ones where she was pulling faces or sticking her tongue out or even pointing her finger at OTL and telling him where he could keep his camera!

 Inside the castle there was loads of 'Frames within Frames'

 The castle was very high and even looked down on Rochester Cathedral!

Rochester Cathedral
 Inside the castle you can see the well and the different floors where they ate and slept and in one room there was the 'Robing Room' which we now call the Loo.

It's a good thing that OTL has a bad sense of smell!

A View from the Dining Hall!
 The spiral staircases were steep and the steps were a bit of a climb!

Going Up!
Looking from the top of the castle you could see the Russian Submarine moored up on the River Medway.

Anyone know the way back to Severomorask?
When they all came back we had a bit of lunch and then waved Bye Bye to Alun, Glynis and Abby as they headed off for home.

OTL went up to do some work but Holly and I had decided we wanted our midday walk so the work had to wait!

Down on the beach the tide was on it's way in so I had a paddle, followed by a dip and I even tried to take a tennis ball away from a Spaniel called Poppy!

No chance, I couldn't get it in my mouth and Poppy soon got it away from me!

Lost to a Big Mouth!
We wandered down the Sea Wall and the tide raced in and it got deep enough for me to have a swim and a chase of the red bone!

Me being a Russian Sub!
I called out to Holly to come and have a swim 'cos the water was rather warm, Holly on the other paw said that I was a 'Right Soppy Woofer' for wanting to get soaking wet!

Wot a Soppy Woofer!
I came out of the water and tried to get Holly to have a game of 'Chase' 'cos she had been very patiently sitting on the sand while I had my swim.

All of a sudden we heard 'Let's Play Chase Girls'!

We spun around to see this big lump of a Bozo thundering up the beach!

Yo Girls! My name is Doug!
 I must admit, I was a bit scared to begin with but we soon found out that we could run faster, turn faster and generally run circles around Doug!

Come on Slow Coach!
 We ran behind OTL and watched Doug come steaming up the beach. We were laughing at the way his face seemed to flop up and down as he ran!

Look, a Skin Changer!
He got called away by his owner and we headed for home as well. I got a good rub down back in the car and OTL spent so long drying me that Holly got a bit jealous and asked OTL to give her a rub down as well, even though she wasn't wet!

Wot a Soppy Puppy!

Back home we had some fun with OTL's new camera and some of the programs or Aps.

This one we thought was fun, OTL's 'Work Station'!

Work Station!

Phew! This has been a long blog today, so many pictures, so many words!

We are off to see if the Doggy Scoff has changed into a big juicy steak and of course, to say 'Hello' to the fairies behind the sofa!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr Brambles.


  1. That was a big blog, but it was very good and the pictures are lovely. What a busy day. You need to tell TM that such a busy day needs much better scoff. Well, that Doug chap seems a bit beefy, just as well you could out run and out turn him, you wouldn't want him mowing you down. Glad you've had a fun time with the visitors, I bet they're sorry to go home and leave you behind. Looking forward to tomorrows blog. Have a fun evening xxxx

  2. That must take the biscuit for one of the longest blogs you have done, well done, what great pictures as well, I hope your visitors had a good time and that the lack of a table didn't upset them. Did you find a fairy behind the sofa................... no...............thought not...............oh well, doggy scoff it will have to be.
    You make a very good submarine and glad the water was warm, I don't like the look of that dog Doug, I think he looks fierce. Sorry you didn't get the extra walk in Rochester but you would not have liked it being on leads and not allowed anywhere, far better at home nice and cosy, even without the steak. xxxx
