Hurro, Ludo here!

You know, Mum was looking through some of our photos the other day and she realised there a lot of stuff we planned to blog about and she neglected my blog never got around to posting. So here an adventure from 3 and a half years ago, afore Arran comed along, when I went on Holiday to the Cotswolds and visited the city of Oxford.

Oxford a city in the UK and it famous for it’s colleges and big fancy buildings also, it has no cars inside it.

London

Our tour continued in the CAPITAL of England, which be called London. London has lots of sights to see and what with Mum’s hurty teeths she didn’t manage to capture them all. But there a few piccured here.

Here comes our bus!

OMD! What’s Woodstock doing up the top, sight seeing? Who driving the bus.

Martha? Surely that not safe, her legs not reach the peddles and she not even like driving. Oh, Bailey be working the peddles, ok then.

First stop required a visit to a really big puddle. Called the Thames. Yous can see a lot of things from the Thames. It a very important river that used to be so very polluted but getting better now.
Here be a nice learning link for you to learn some histories. Sometimes we hears news stories about how a poor hugenormous whale, even bigger than Mango comes swimming up the Thames and can’t get back out. There lots of old and new things living in the Thames like shopping trollies, and shackles.

Most of all it fun to go sight seeing on and one of our most, er… popular soaps is set along the Thames, in the East End of England. Where they talk like this… (don’t watch past the first few seconds where you see the Thames cos is gets real sad) That video a tribute to a famous doggy named Wellard who was on the soap for 14 years (played by three generations of dogs!) Well, that a bit of ‘pop culture’ for you. Now onto the sight seeing.

Some dogs had other things on their mind than looking at the buildings. I doesn’t blame them, buildings is boring!

Ah, this more like it, lunch! Isn’t it very grand inside our tour boat. Some dogs is doing their best ‘please’ look while young Maya just casnot resist. Who could blame her, I is only not tucking in cos I is being held back by Mum!

We spotted the London eye from our boat and decided to go up for a whirl around.

I took my gal Morgan into our own private carriage to whisper sweet nothings about bacon and tug toys in her beautiful ears.
*blush*
Lets look at who’s in the next pod along.
Oh dog! Maybe we should back out, that look a bit private…
hehe, I sure it all innocent and Katie just be showing Reilly her new trick, not flirting at all! huruff!
Next off to one of the most important places in London. Buckingham Palace. Why? Cos the Queen lives there, well, sometimes, and she a dog lover, so I sure she would appreciate us all coming to visit, right?
Dum dum dum duuummm. That the noise we apposed to make when we see the flag. Oh, Mum say that not really right, we apposed to say ‘God save the Queen (and her dogs!)’
Hm, why does Bailey seem to be running away from the palace. I does hope our bus is safe and not smashed into the side of it or anything. I sure I can trust those Basset babes though.
Here Stella trying to convince a guard to let us in. We nominated her as the most pursuasive.
Come back soon! I should be able to post the next one tomorrow now that Mum’s teeths has stopped hurting her. You shoulda seen her, moan, moan, moan. ‘Ludo, does not put your face so close to mine, no hitting with paws, no licking, No sitting on my face so I casnot get away.’ Sigh.

200!! Starting the tour in…

Liverpool!!

Welcome to my 200th post pawtee tour of England celebration. I so glad lots of you wanted to join me and I hope I stuck around long enough at the airport to collect you all, but never fear, there lots more airports in Britain.

We decided to start off in Liverpool cos it beed the capital of culture in Europe for 2008 and I thought that sounded like it might be good to give us some stuff to sound clevers about.

I went to the John Lennon Airport to meet the first wave of DWB’s.

Of course my guests had no trouble finding me… And it beed quite easy to get through customs cos we had no shoes to be checked.
It was all outside where a very special English bus awaited us with a very special driver!
Woodstock!
Liverpool is probably most famous for The Beatles, and for Football. Well, I doesn’t like football cos it makes people shouty, so I went for The Beatles instead. We visited this place…
Somedogs thought it would be fun to have a go at being The Beatles
They were just pawtastic!! Of course bad boy Mack had to be drummer, with Stella, Amber, and TD… I wonder why them haircuts aren’t still in fashion?
All the talk of beatles made a certain cat rather hungry, so imagine how excited he was when he spied this…
But up close, it looked rather more scary than edible.
The cats on the trip had gathered round for a closer look. GJ decided best to play dead, Ali Zophia felt rather more brave than usual what with two ‘brave’ (hehe!) man cats to look after her, whilst JB slunk quietly away and my brofur Pepe tried to look nonchalant.
We decided to beat a hasty retreat back to the bus incase the spider got hungry, come back next post to see where we’re off to next.
