The Disconnected Dog

Sorry guys I have not been a great blogger over the last month.

This is not because I have not had anything to say you understand! It’s been a busy month.

First, don’t get me started on the Internet in Germany. Where we live which is only about 30km from Frankfurt our Internet is slower that what my Humans call Dial-Up. Don’t know what that is but it sounds slooow. Then it stopped working completely for two weeks! I thought I was frustrated, not being able to get my paws on a keyboard and all but you should have seen the steam coming out of the ears of Curly-Human and Princess-Human!!!

In the end my Humans decided it was time to go on holiday but they bloody well left me behind! I always go on holiday with them…

Even worse was they had some friends house-sitting for them and looking after me! There was a good-side though, my new Humans spoilt me with walks and LOTS of ball throwing, I got to sit on the sofa and eat treats and everything… Heh heh, perhaps I will bark at my family when they get home, pretend I don’t know them eh? I have my new Humans now.

Actually perhaps not, these new Humans are tiring me out, they go for walks really early in the morning and I’m just not a morning dog. Then they even have repeat walks during the day! Way too much for me, I have a new trick I use where I limp a bit to pretend I have a sore paw and cannot possible go out, works a treat! They are pretty cool though, just need a bit of further training from me…

My family are due home any day now. Secretly I really miss them and can’t wait to hear their stories and get back into my regular routines and blogging

A Dogs Day Out In Frankfurt

Now I think today I’m picking up some of Grumpy-Humans grump. I’m definitely a bit grumpy to say the least. There I was minding my own business at home and I detected the tell-tail signs of an adventure happening. Walking shoes going on, proper outdoor clothes, the rattle of car keys and… and… the dog leash. Oh no not the dog leash! I am quite happy to stay on guard duty at home but no… Curley-Human had to be picked up from a sleep-over at a friend’s house in Frankfurt so my Humans thought it would be great to take me for a nice walk along the Main River which runs right through Frankfurt. As usual Humans know best so off we went…

BorderCollie Not Happy  This is what I think of that!

ffwalk02  Himmm, that looks a bit deep and a tad unsafe…

ffwalk03   Yeah, great views back to the city of Frankfurt but I’d rather be home chasing balls, just saying…

ffwalk04  Actually a boat cruise on the Main River would be pretty cool and I bet as this is Germany us dogs would be allowed too. The boats sail from here all the way to the Rhine River, the Moselle River and beyond.

ffwalk05   If I steal this boat perhaps I can escape in it eh?

ffwalk06   Oohh come on guys its time to go!!

And that was me day out in Frankfurt. Perhaps I was a bit hard on the day out thing because it was mostly OK actually. Maybe my Humans will organize that cruise next time, I’d be up for that.
