Hol-ee-day in Yorkshire!

Yes, we went about 4 weeks ago and I is just now getting Mum to type it up for me! Disgraceful! Mum and TND went away the weekend afore and we stayed at Grandpawents, so we really needed to be having a nice time on hol-ee-day!

So, that why Arran might has shrunk since you last seed him.

We stayed in a very nice little cottage in Swaledale, Yorkshire. I has never beed to Yorkshire. It much the same as other Shires, I has beed to since we stayed in a cottage and went for nice walks, only a bit wetter. We found it here. It had it’s kitchen and bathroom downstairs and it’s living room and bedroom upstairs. It had a very big garden too!

We got there pretty late on the first day and Mum spent most of the night trying to get my stupid little bro-fur to do a wee outside. Anyway, he eventually got the hang of it and when we woke up in the morning we found a whole new stream in our garden.

So we snoozed for a bit. Now we were not allowed on the furniture. But we were also not allowed in the bedroom and Mum said she had ‘no hope’ of stopping us, so like always, we just put our own covers on the sofas. Normally I would not let Arran be so close to me, but I be tired from my long journey.

We found a sheltie height window! Arran really like it a lot! He like doing gruff gruff barking out the window. TND says ‘No gruffing’ to him.

We love our TND! We had a nice fire. We wented out for some walks too! Some a bit wet.

This usually be a path! Arran did be a bit scared!DSC_0260 DSC_0258

He had to go back on the lead when we went past sheep or cows.DSC_0263 DSC_0264

Another ‘path’.

We came to one bit which we could not get past at all and we had to climb along a wall. Mum got scared cos she dipped her stick into the water on either side and it kept on going. I went across with TND and then I got scared too and he had to carry me, then he comed back and Mum passed him Arran and then he had to come and hold Mum’s hand. She crawled along so she had 4 paw drive like us. No photos, too scary! Then we went to a little cafe and had some lunch but Arran gotted a bit cold so Mum tucked him up in her coat on the way back. I bet he casnot fit in there now!DSC_0267

We got some sunshine too. DSC_0312

We found a very nice dog friendly place to have lunch in… or rather, out. But we could have gone in if we wanted! It called the Lister Arms Hotel

Mum and TND had very nice sandwiches and we had some of TND’s ham.

We seed this big viaduct for trains. (Mum thinks this the Carlisle to Settle line)

Arran thinks hol-ee-days be very good. Maybe I will let him come on another one?

Pee ess: I is gonna spend this week in ‘catch up on blogs mode’. Plus I has to tell you all about the exciting news. Crispmas coming again!! It all Arran’s fault because Mum has to ‘watch him’ all the time or else she turns around and some ‘not yours’ has beed killed. To think! I would never do that!

  1. What great pictures! I especially loved the ones of TND snoozing with you pups, very sweet! Just think of all the places I have been with you that I would never otherwise get to! Sorry Arran is doing naughty things, I think you did things 100 times worse, Ludo! Thanks for the nice trip and I hope you, Arran, Mum and TND have a lovely Christmas ! Cheers and hugs, Jo, Stella and Zkhat

  2. Great report Ludo, But gosh I hope no-one from Yorkshire reads it – you could be in real trouble saying their county is “much the same as the other Shires”. I have to say, on the basis of your pictures, it looks wetter than Aberdeenshire.
    Toodle pip!

  3. what a wonderful place to visit……very wet but wonderful. We see arran is starting to get his big dog coat……but not enought yet to keep him warm…won’t be long though.

  4. What a great holiday! And to think they put in a sheltie window just for you guys! How cool! Loved the fields of sheep with you guys watching, and the one of you guys napping while your Mom looked through the binoculars. Looks like a really really nice vacation you had! And Ludo…I seem to remember a few ‘not yours’ that died when you were young…
