Happy Easter Everyone!!
Hope you all have had a blessed day and have had lots of chocolate eggs!
My blog today is all about my little fur baby Billy! He has been on his first holiday over the Easter break; he has came to visit Adam in Bournemouth!!!
Unfortunately due to Bloo being so huge and Adam living in a top floor flat, it just wouldn’t be feasible for me to take both of them… I do hear though that he is missing Billy and is very jealous!
It all started off when myself and Adam was discussing moving in together and how we would get a dog. In particular I have my heart set on a little French bulldog however I am big on adopting puppies/dogs and not buying #AdoptDontShop
We were discussing how much hardwork they would be and also if it would be feasible.
Nothing else was said on the topic for a little while but Adam did suggest bringing Billy down on my next visit. As Adam lives by the sea and is a mere 5 minutes from Southbourne beach it seemed like the perfect idea…
I packed up my suitcase and bags as usual for my venture down south. I was also packing for a second passenger, Billy. 6 Tins of dog food, a bag of biscuits, a bowl, harness & collar, a ball, a bed and his lead.
The bearing in mind from Leicester to Southbourne (Bournemouth) it takes about 3 hours in the car… Billy was a little star. After getting the car packed up I put a blanket down in the foot-well for him to lay on. About an hour into the journey he was looking at me slightly puzzled as if to say ‘This is a long journey to the park’. Another half an hour and we had got half way. He kept trying to go sleep but the car was too bouncy for him and the bumps kept waking him, so I pulled over to see if he needed to go toilet and then put his bed into the foot-well. The space was a little tight but it did the job, for the remaining time he drifted in and out of sleep until we got to Bournemouth.
That evening he was pretty darn petrified. He wasn’t sure where he was and he wasn’t really sure what was happening but with a bit of encouragement he was going toilet and navigating around the flat. We had takeaway food that evening and had a reasonably early night sleep so we could get up and take Billy for his first experience on the beach.
Over the past few days Billy has been on 3 walks a day! A Morning walk which consists of lots of ball throwing and chase games. The Afternoon walk which was a much more leisurely stroll on the beach shoreline. The Adam Evening walk, Adam takes him back down to the beach for the final walk of the day which is only a 30 min walk but allows him to get some fresh air and go toilet.
Our evenings consist of getting takeaway or cooking and just before bed taking billy down to the very local greenery (1 min walk) for him to go for a wee before settling down for the night.
It has been a lovely break but very tiring for both myself and Adam as well as Billy.
I will be heading back to Leicester tomorrow morning to miss the Easter Break traffic. I can only imagine Billy will be doing exactly what he is doing now… Donking out, fast asleep!
I have to say! I feel fitter, but I am in so much pain with my back, my ankles, legs, shoulder and neck. I basically ache all over. Adam and I have decided that until we buy a house with a garden, maybe we wouldn’t cope with a dog. Lucky for me I live with my granny & auntie still so I have my 2 babies (4 including the guineas) at home.
Hope you all had a wonderful break!
Billy sends lots of love and licks
