Its been an exciting week here in the Brown Family. While my noisy feathered sisters had to stay at home (the chickens) and my big brother Oz guarded the house (Oz the Corn Snake); Richard, Caroline and myself went away for a few days.
The first trip was just a day out to the beach, but I had lots of fun running on the sand, the second trip lasted several days and we got to visit new places to sleep, new pubs to eat in and I encountered strange new creatures called kittens.
We stopped in an old converted barn, Caroline and Richard had to sleep in a strange bed but I made them bring my usual bed with them in the car, no strange beds for me. The bedroom was a little confusing as it had these things called french doors, outside there was a lovely view of a pond but the french doors have this stuff called glass going from floor to ceiling and it was not until I bumped my noise that I realised the glass was in the way. I ate outside next to the pond at the barn enjoying the view.
We shared the barn with some kittens which I ignored as you just could not get a sensible conversation out of them. Too interested in catnip, wool and climbing curtains, a rather dangerous enterprise I think you will agree.
The pub where Richard and Caroline had their evening meals had a number of dogs in it also visiting the area, including one called Boo a large standard poodle who lived there. With me being a greyhound I was allowed to sit with Richard and Caroline while they ate.
The days were long and lots of walking was involved, some of the shops allowed dogs in and we went to investigate, others did not (did they not realise I am a Hound not a lowly Dog).
One place we visited was very exciting. It was called a pier and you could walk on it and have the sea crash under your feet, very exciting. The coffee shop on the pier also allowed me in, and Richard and Caroline had hot chocolate and I had some cake that Richard dropped on my head! I am sure he meant to pass it me but these things happen.
Over all an exciting time and I look forward to my next adventure with great interest.
