257. New Year, New Me – by Monty

I awoke this morning to find that we had left Europe.


Chicken looked out into the garden and announced that it made no difference at all as it was still cold. She had expected us to move a little closer to the Caribbean once we left Europe, though as there is still a long way to go so to speak, has not yet given up hope of wearing her bikini.

As you know, I am not one to occupy my time with frivolous activities, so I recently organised a squirrel hunt for Chicken and I. Showing my usual generosity, I allowed The Fairy to accompany us. Her training is progressing well and I have allowed Chicken to let go of The Fairy’s lead. I, of course, am always still attached to her as there is no guarantee that she will not wonder off on her own and be found twenty miles away, a week later.


Max and Tilly 

Imagine my surprise when instead of finding squirrels in the woods, we actually found a couple of greyhounds who were doing an excellent job of impersonating us! Chicken was convinced that they actually were us and, having decided she didn’t like herself, went off with her heckles up. To be fair, she did make a bit of an effort which  was fortuitous for all involved.



The two ladies who were with the dogs were lovely and kept The Fairy well engaged whilst I swapped details with the hounds. I’m sure you will join me in congratulating Max and Tilly for being so incredibly attractive.

  1. Waving hello to Max and Tilly – I love complementary winter wear….and you are sounding just the same as ever Monty. Good to see Chicken can meander about on her own. I am too wonky to meander – often standing up is a challenge but extra sausages help. 💋

    • Extra sausages ALWAYS help. Don’t worry about meandering – very soon you’ll be able to just pop your head out the back door to go hedgehog hunting. 🦔

  2. Newsflash, M. Tilly and Max are NOT you and Chicken! Yikes. Don’t you two know you’re ONE OF A KIND? You cannot be replicated. It is nice to have similar friends, though, so that’s good. I have been shivering around here a lot, so if you figure out how to get closer to the Caribbean, please let me know. Thanks.

    Love and licks,

    • Good morning, Cupcake! It’s so lovely to hear from you again. I’m sorry that you are feeling cold. You are welcome to come over here and share my electric bed with me. I hope you and your mum are both well.
      Monty ❤️🐾❤️

    Oh Monty, you two remind me very much of our two. Stubby is big and sensible like you. And Holly is like Chicken – female, small and daft as a brush!Keep them all in order old boy!
