Written on Saturday morning but due to translation efforts (and lost whale rescue efforts – see next blog entry), not posted until Sunday – apologies!
Apparently we’re on the move again, at least all the bags have been packed and there’s talk of going to look for a “lost whale” in a Loch near Fort William. Someone said it might have got lost after being preoccupied chasing some fish, I know that feeling, I’ve nearly got lost a few times when those pesky squirrels (and occasionally the odd rabbit) decide not to stay still…and although the run is fun, it can be quite scary not knowing where everyone has gone….although they’re usually where I left them and shouting my name!! I do hope the whale has someone shouting for him…
(However I must say, after listening to all the talk about these “highly intelligent” animals, I do have to wonder how clever they really are – should have got one of those map or GPS things that the humans I’m with have!)
I’ll be sad to leave this rather pleasant home away from home…although I don’t think I’ll be missing those dastardly sheep any! I nearly got one the other day when we stopped the moving box to let a whole lot of them past but however hard I tried I just couldn’t squeeze out the window….and my cries went unattended so getting out the door wasn’t going to be an option either! It was so unfair…..there were two other of my kind out there with them (I think they were from the border collie side of the family) and they were allowed to chase them – who makes up these rules?!?
I’ll miss my daily dose of seaweed too! I didn’t like it to begin with (just thought it was a mouldy stick) but it’s grown on me and apparently now I’m not only eating healthy but I’m trendy too!
And the temporary office has been fun, although getting there can be quite time-consuming – I’ve had as many pork scratchings as I could poke a stick at and lots of tummy rubs from unsuspecting office workers – they weren’t always too happy when they realised I’d just been for a swim!
So until the next time, it’s a big woof from me….and hopefully I’ll be back in May when the big birds and boats will also be back and perhaps by then I’ll have improved on my Houdini technique and managed to work a way out of both the garden and the car…and finally get to those dastardly sheep!!
