White Rabbit Alice in Wonderland

We left my story when we were driving away from the village where we had met David, the vet, for the first time. (The first part of this tale is Paws for Thought, the second is Public Examination and the third part is Incredulity Overload.) When we drew into the…

Incredulity Overload

Carving, Labuerda

I left my tale where David, the vet, had just told my bipeds I needed antibiotics to make my paw better. (The first part of this story is Paws for Thought and the second is Public Examination.) He went on to say that he would give me an injection straightaway,…

Nothing to bark at

The Pied Piper of the Pyrenees

Illustration for The Pied Piper by Kate Greenaway

I went for a stroll in the park with my female biped recently. We walked across the small grassy field and went to the larger field. A small river flows along one edge of it and we spent some time watching the ducks. I had a good sniff around and…

Top hat

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! It was a holiday weekend here and I know it was a special weekend for my American friends as well. I had a great time at the weekend. I spent some of my time doing all the usual stuff a dog has…
