Somewhere in Kent

Well we got here in one piece........its 23.35 and I'm having a crafty gin and tonic in the living room of Sorrel's neat little maisonette  after she, the Welsh terriers and Chris have all gone to bed.
Her pristine carpets remain pristine which was more than could be said for Chris' nephew's bedroom, which was liberally peppered with dog turds, just as I was tucking in to the tasty French vol au vents.

And so much of my evening has been spent scrubbing an 11 year old's carpet with a spare facecloth and dettol in front of 100 posters of Dr Who......
Hey Bloody Ho!
I haven't had time to catch up with blogs for a few days so please forgive me......
( I say this as I take one last swig of gin .......with my glass hand smelling somewhat of ...........
Happy Boxing Day

  4. How can those dogs not be housebroken?? Seems like they shit on the floor at least once a week. Does Trelawnyd have a canine remedial toilet training class?

  5. John- I just got two ducks, willed to me by a beloved friend who died a week and a few days ago. I am hoping they can become part of our little kingdom here with our chickens. I am enjoying them tremendously. They are so different than chickens and in a day I have learned a lot. As I observe them, I think of you.
    Hey Ho! Let's hear it for all the animals, even those who poop upon carpets.

  7. I'd need a large gin and tonic after that, too!

    Phoebe gave me the nicest Christmas present by letting me sleep in on Christmas Day and then vomited on the rug in three different places in the evening. sigh.

  11. George looks splendid in his scarf. He's probably missing you lots and just putting on a brave face. Or maybe not!

  13. I expect George is just enjoying some different doggy pals. Hope you have a lovely time in Kent……and eventually get those Welsh terriers house trained. Keep taking the gin !!

  14. George looks like he is having a fabulous time, I love his scarf ... dare I say it, he's almost more in the Christmas mood than you are!!

    Can't dogs toilet habit be embarrassing, your poor nephews bedroom will never be the same again for him.

  15. You AND the dogs have my sympathy. It's a minefield, taking dogs to stay in someone else's home - accidents will happen.....

  16. You really deserve that gin.!

  21. What would a holiday be without some kind of animal turds?!? So glad you're in Wales and not New England, USA. Gin & Tonic is not considered fashionable in winter.

  22. Relax and enjoy! Dogs will be dogs, and in a new place they will do what they wouldn't do at home.

  23. at least George looks like his time away is quite the treat...very natty in his scarf...

  24. Don't they all look so innocent in that photo? But probably planning to indulge in some blatant naughtiness in a few minutes' time.

  25. Ah he's being pampered and looking very sharp!

  26. "...with a spare facecloth"

    Oh goodness. And I thought it couldn't get any worse than the dishcloth. I think you need to invest in a pack or two of disposable wipes from Poundland, where they are selling them for... eh... a pound.

  27. Our Border Terrier used to go and stay with my parents when we went on holiday. When we went to pick him up he used to stand on the doorstep with Mum and Dad to wave us off. We had to pick him up and carry him to car, growling and biting all the way.

    Hey Ho.

  28. At least it was the dogs that left the turds and not the nephew. That would be more of a problem

    I love the picture!

  29. Guess I shouldn't be grumbling about the 100 pounds of lemons I have to juice today. My little diabetic weenie, Sister, peed on my husband's carpet in his man cave today and he just died. He wasn't raised with animals and doesn't believe they belong inside a home. Too bad.

  30. Seems to me they are all looking at food - wins hands down every time.

  31. I feel your pain. I woke up to one pile of cat barf, and by midnight had cleaned up two more. Despite our best efforts, three of the four cats had found something verboten under the tree and ingested it ... foil wrapping paper for one and curling ribbon for the other two. Sigh.
