I don't like it !


I don't like thunder !!  Where's a canine to hide so we can't see the lightening or hear the thunder claps?  Well I think I found the best place in my pad, the rain room.  The Misses even made it comfortable for me.....

Early up, early out


Another very early beach walk for me this morning as the Guv and the Misses had to go to the tooth doctor in Kalamata. Mind you my mate "Blue" from down the road was up and out early as well as I think I saw his dad's car going to another beach near us just before 0800hrs !


The Misses then went to have her fur cut so the Guv and I went to church !


....and later to our favourite cafe for refreshments...

Another day, another beach....


Another shopping day for the Misses today, but that meant I got a run-a-bout on a different beach for a change.  Mind you the Guv spoilt my fun as he would not let me chase the cats that were strolling around !

Twice in a day....



Well today was a good day. Not only did I get the normal morning beach walk with the Guv as the Misses went to the market on the sea front,  we also went out again later and met some friends for coffee.  After that it was off to the yacht club for lunch and a cool beer for the Guv as temperatures reached 25C.  I like it there as I get to look out over the balcony at all the goings on..........

In BIG trouble.....


I got into BIG trouble yesterday after the morning walk!  The Guv decided to take me up this path through the groves to the old church near us.  Well that was all OK, but when we went back down to the "poppymobile" a Greek canine in the back of a pick up truck decided to bark abuse at me....
I'm not having any of that I thought, so took off at a pace of knots after it. Chased it all the way to the beach and gave the mutt a piece of my mind!
The Misses and Guv were not too happy with me though as they had to drive to come and find me......           never spoke to me all day !

Mary, Mary quite contrary....


Now the Misses likes her garden but again this year whilst we were away some of the trees never got any water as the watering system was not turned on! In true fashion however the the trees that live and produce the most are the ones she has little use for, flowers on the Yucca and fruit on the Κυδωνi (Quince).



So I thought I had better help start to dig holes for new trees !!!!

It's the rain room....


Another visit to the "rain room" the other day!  What is it with you humans that seem to want us canines to keep clean?  The Misses sometimes wears smelly perfumes and the Guv sometimes wears smelly aftershave, why can't I wear nice aromatic fox smelling scent?

Oh no, it's Ochi


Well I had to get out extra early this morning for my walk about.  In fact I did not go to the normal beaches but to our nearest town for a walk on the flat around the harbour.  You see I have hurt my shoulder so walking is a bit difficult at present.
The other reason for an extra early walk was to get out before the big Ochi Day parades start.  Nearly all towns and villages have big parades as it's a national holiday.  Perhaps I should declare a National Rosie holiday as the Guv often shouts OCHI to me!!

Food for friends...


You may recall a few blogs back I told you about all the dog food my people were bringing from France to the rescue centre here in Greece.  Well the other day it got delivered, just over 200kg of it.    For once I did not mind not getting any.

Make it go away...



OK now my homeland is known to be hot and sunny.  I come back here a week ago and all the grass is burnt dry by the heat and sun and what happens just seven days after I arrive IT THUNDERS and RAINS!
I hate thunder.....make it go away Guv

Life's a beach...



So some things never change. Now I'm back in Greece it's up early each morning with the Guv and out for the beach walk.  Yesterday I had a good look around this beach hut someone had built during the summer, not bad either but they have now vacated......I could make it my beach kennel

Sand or sugar ?



OK, back to my journey.  Now I was mighty pleased to get off the ferry at Patras as I really needed to do doggy things. You see for the 22 hours onboard I just can't as ferries do not have any grass areas!

The Guv stopped the "poppymobile" just outside the port for me but our next stop was not until we reached Zacharo and I was allowed a good run-a-bout on the beach. I really knew I was now back in my homeland!

My room in Italy.....



Woof...the other day when I told you about our stay at La Crota in Italy I forgot to tell you about the great welcome we had by the humans there.  We were shown around and given free use of the both the lounge and the kitchen / dining area. What's more there was fruit, teas and free wine made by the owner of the house.  Under the house was the original wine cellar, but the Misses said the Guv could not go down there, in case he never reappeared.  I had to stay in the room though...

All ship shape....



Well it's "all aboard" again on the Minoan bath tub at Ancona for a long 22 hours journey to my homeland.  I just need to ask the Guv where does a girl do doggy things onboard!

Kitten comfort



Well I've finally managed to get to the computer without my people seeing.  Now as I was saying in my last blog there was an awful lot of activity going on at my pad in France and now I know why..
Off we all went in the "poppymobile" with "big blue" behind us.  This was our second stop, a place in Italy my people planned to spend the night.  What a greeting I had, two horses, a donkey, several canines and cats came to greet me.
I sorted most of them out but actually felt sorry for the kitten, so I let the Guv comfort her....

...and so to bed



Well I guess all the holidays in the "human kennel on wheels" are over for another year as the Guv and the Misses have put it to bed.  Mind you there is quite a lot of activity going on in my pad and I have been told that I will not be able to have the computer to write any blogs for a week or so.  That might mean the Guv has not paid the phone bill !   I'll let you know the reason next week.....

Lumbered.....



Well to continue from my blog yesterday I managed to check just what all this noise was about.  At first I thought it was a strange human building a nest in the tree opposite, but as you can see in the photographs our neighbour decided to have one his trees cut down a bit.  Now the Guv has cut down some of our trees but he does not climb up them to do it.....


I thought humans only cut trees down in Sept-timber!


Hope he leaves some of the tree for my mate "Reglisse" to use!

It's all happening....



OK, so this morning there's noise coming from across the road and I thought I had better investigate.  As a quick look through the garden fence did not reveal much I thought I'd better head out on my people's bedroom balcony for a better view.  Now I can see a white tin box on wheels with the doors open......
I'll tell you tomorrow what happens.

Another lunch stop



So on my trip with my people this was another place we stopped and had a look around, "Andernos le Bains".  The Guv and Misses decided to have lunch there, and very good it looked.....I did get a bit of left overs once we got back to the human kennel on wheels as I am not allowed to eat out or beg at table....

Morning stop



Each day the Guv drove to interesting places and of course religiously stops on the way for his morning coffee.  This church was opposite our stop in La Teich, I did not get to go inside but the Misses did......

Sand, sand & sand !



I thought I'd show you a few more photographs my people took of other beaches we went to, Pyla Dunes and of course of me.  Now I wanted to have a good run around on those sands but the Guv would not let me, he's a real spoil sport just because when I do I enjoy sorting a few other canines out!



By the way I told the Guv there is NO WAY I'm walking all the way up there!

Flying high



We walked to the end of our campsite right onto the beach which seemed to go on forever. There were humans there pretending to be birds and flying high in the sky. Now my job as a Greek hunting dog is to get the birds up in the air for the Guv to shoot.......don't think he'd better shoot these down though!
