Ellie says..come on Holly out

Holly ..nope I am not coming out!

Teddy..hello there Molly

Holly ..its good for jumping on and it rolls

Molly checks the tunnel out

Websters turn in the tunnel..

Catching the drips off the bubble gun

Someone cheats licking the bubble machine!

Molly & Gertie still investigating

Dorcus..have you got a monacle? nope its a bubble!

Cora ...I'll get you bubble!

Way to go Cora!

Holly the tunnel girl!

Teddy ..I know I know I shouldn't be on the garden table!

Molly & Gertie... maybe we could try it?

Gertie & Holly rumble tumble

what a day of fun we have had..hopefully a day for Molly & Gertie to remember!

It's now almost dinner time and as Molly & Gerties mum and dad have just phoned to say they have arrived safely back from Aussie and are in a hotel 5 mins away from us for the night..... we better go and help the girls pack their bags as they are leaving early in the morning!

Hi Thuglets + 2

Your day looked so exciting. We want to know did Molly and Gertie enter the tunnel? How many bubbles did you catch and what flavour were they?

You were excellent hosts Thuglets and we are sure Molly and Gertrude will always remember their visit to Dale Centre Parks.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

Molly and Taffy xx

This is going to be a tough good-bye all around because you've all had so much fun!
What memories Molly and Gertrude will take with them!
We've enjoyed their stay with you as much as you've enjoyed it!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Lizzy said...

Wow, looks like you all had a BLAST! You got a tunnel?! That is so awesome! I agree with Holly, they are great for jumping on! That's what I do in my agility class. I discovered that tunnels make better jumps than normal bars do. Hee hee.

And bubbles? That's pretty cool! I like the pictures of you all trying to catch them! I caught a few bubbles last summer, but they tasted absolutely horrible, so I never caught any since! It's fun to watch them though.

Man, 300 pictures? I think your human is almost as camera crazy as mine! Though I must say, it would have been nice to see all 300 pictures, as I can never get enough of watching you all play!

Hi Thuglets, it's such a shame that the 3 weeks stay has come to an end. We've all really enjoyed the diary and especially the photographs......we hope the girls sleep tonight ready for their journey tomorrow!

Dexter said...

Oh boy! I like to play with the bubbles too.


The Thuglets said...

The bubbles were smokey bacon and BBQ chicken!

Nope the girls didn't venture i tne tunnel! lol

Agatha and Archie said...

Kyanite said...

The time certainly has gone quickly, but what fun you've had!
I've loved the photo's.
Now, please don't surgically remove that digital camera from your hooman...

Pats & pets to all

Molly and Gertrude said...

Hello -
so lovely to see their last day with you was full of excitement - now we know why they are crashed out and completely zonked with exhaustion this evening! They just love bubbles - thanks, but I'm not suprised that they were hesitant about the strange tunnel thing that landed on the lawn!! Now really one of you two should have crawled through to encourage them to follow you....!! Thankyou so much to all of you for giving our girls such a wonderful time and looking after them so lovingly - we can't say how much that means to us. We think Molly is missing Webster and Gertrude is looking a little confused and lost - perhaps she is wondering where Teddy went. They will be back to blogging land shortly, when they have recovered from all the excitement!
Love Kate and Paul

Noah the Airedale said...

We'd like to book a holiday at Basecamp Thuglets please. Should we bring our own bedding? We will start digging immediately so look out for some earth movement in your yard. We should be there soon.
We'd like to place an order for roast chicken and lasagne thank you and could we also book a turn in the tunnel, thank you. Is the bubble machine bacon flavoured? That will be nice too.

Hugs and tail wags
Noah Willow Tess & Lucy
