Well I have called this Blog, “September’s Trip Abroad” so I could tell you where I ended up this month!
I suppose the big flag has given it away slightly, but for those of you who don’t know, it was England! Yes, I went over the border for the first time in my life. England wasn’t quite what I was expecting and Newcastle even less so? I thought everyone took coals to Newcastle, so I was expecting huge piles of it and I didn’t see a single lump? I couldn’t understand a word anyone was saying, they speak really funny down there. I still don’t know who this “wye eye mon” was, but he seems very popular because nearly everyone spoke about him? Luckily my confusion didn’t have to last too long as we were only there a few hours before Mum and Dad brought us all safely back into Scotland again. Am not sure when we’ll visit England again, but next time I am hoping Mum and Dad give me a bit more warning, so I can learn their language. After all, English or Scottish, everyone loves me and there’s nothing ruder than nodding politely when you don’t understand someone. I want to be able to understand just how wonderfully gorgeous they think I am!
Every year Mum and BWS make a calendar up to help raise funds for Boxer Welfare Scotland and every year I keep telling them that they should just have 12 months with different photos of me? Surely more people would buy it when they could see me every month, but once again, Mum has used lots of other (very lucky) boxers who have got new homes through BWS. At least they have put the logo on every page, so you will still get to see me. It is a very small photo though and hopefully it won’t put too many people off from buying it. Mum said I had to tell you that you can buy them on the website and that they are only £6.50! That sounds like a bargain to me.
I didn’t realise Christmas was so close! George told me the other day that it was only 12 weeks away, so I really must get my Christmas wish list all sorted. I could tell you I’d be really nice and say I wished all the other boxers could get homes like me? But to be honest, I’ll probably ask for some good treats, lots of toys and a new collar and leave the hard work of finding homes for the other boxers to Mum! Besides, that’s what she is best at (don’t tell her I was nice!) Mum said that we are going to be on the Boxer Welfare Scotland Christmas cards this year! I am very excited, but I just don’t understand what took her so long to think about it. Just think how lucky would you be to get a card with me on it!
Right I am off to have a chat with George about his snoring, a boxer needs her beauty sleep!
