The boat was really hot when we got back to it and it was even worse the next day as Pa disappeared off and left Ma and I to fry on the boat. Pa came back with visitors – Niamhy along with Aunty Penny and Uncle Jim. I love having visitors but AP and Niamh disappeared off again but left Uncle Jim.
|Help I'm stuck!|
We then spent two days going through lots of locks most of which I was allowed to help at. Thankfully the weather got cooler otherwise I don’t think I could have taken the pace. I got chance to play with a few other dogs but more often than not I was quickly caught and put on my lead as soon as another dog was in sight – why can they always see other dogs before me??
Naimhy joined us again – I do love her but she will snarl at me and I get the feeling that she doesn’t really love me L Oh of course Aunty Penny came too!
|The revs looks about right to me|
We had to go through a very long tunnel and I have never been so frightened in my life. I wasn’t allowed on the back deck with Pa – I had to sit at the front with Ma. It was very dark, noisy and cold and I whined until Ma realised that I wasn’t happy. She got a towel and wrapped me up and cuddled me until I felt better. The tunnel was 3 miles long and it took an hour and a half to go through – I thought it would never end but suddenly there was daylight again – phew!
|Is it safe to get off?|
I fell in the canal today – I guess it was my own fault as I tried to jump from the bank onto the boat and missed! However I almost made it but not quite and hit my face on the side of the boat before crashing into the water. I swam to the side (yes I actually swam) and Pa pulled me out. I didn’t make a big fuss as, I have to admit, I was rather ashamed of myself. There were no warm towels and sympathy for me – great parents I have eh?
