I am the most traveled Border Collie in the world. How do I know this? Well I just guested really but I do feel like one of those travelling garden gnomes the way my picture ends up on my Humans Facebook pages with the appropriate famous landmark lurking in the background… just saying…

  1. Ralph, I’m afraid I’m looking rather poorly traveled by comparison. However, I did notice that you’ve been to Heidelberg in Germany. I lived there for around 6 months back in 1992 and lived with a German family. It was the experience of a lifetime, especially as it’s much harder to just take off like that later in life. I have a Border Collie called Bilbo who is 9 and Lady, who is a Border Collie x Cavalier and she’s 3. I hope you have a fabulous Christmas and New Year xx Rowena

    1. Rowena,

      Hi to Bilbo and Lady too.

      My family and I have lived near Frankfurt Germany for two years and it’s been fantastic. We are so central to fabulous places in Europe many like Heidelberg are only hours away. So be it a trip to Metz, France for lunch or a day out in lovely Heidelberg it’s so easy.

      Sadly we are moving home to Perth Australia in a few weeks. We are very sad and will miss all of this.

      Perth my Humans tell me is a great outdoors city and I will love it but… 36 hours on planes and airports then 10 days in quarantine in Melbourne followed by another 3 hour flight to Perth… I will be a wreck when I arrive.

      But I’m sure I will have wonderful new adventures in Australia to blog about.

      Have a great Christmas and New Year you guys and thanks for following me.



  2. Dear Ralph,

    You lead an amazing and fun filled life. My human says I need one more booster and then I can get out and go too. I can’t wait! Thank you for visiting me yesterday. I look forward to seeing where you go next!
