Home Alone - They went Trippin

Can you believe it?

They left us at home ...well not actually alone. we have our own "Minder" who comes to stay with us and we keep her in order..whoops sorry ....that should say she keeps us un order! We had daily practise at being a troop of thuglets, as well as lots of fun and play.

Here's a clue where they went trippin too....

They didn't even know the Eiffel Tower had been evacuated one day... till they got home!!

They met a huge dale chappie called Grundell a Belgian Dale living in France with his English owners. Shame she didn't think to take a piccie of his face instead of his airerear! (We think it was she was so stunned to see a dale!).

Came across the fire brigade practising shinning up a very "precarious" ladder!

Bread and cakes to drool over!

All in Pink..where else but Paris!

Taking your car for a river trip!

The Musee du Louvre....Glass Pyramid entrance. Cultural experience they saw the Eygptian Exhibition and a special exhibtion Arts of Islam

Are these the 2 most expensive G&T's in the world???

However absolutely a MUST when in Paris ..even at £17.50p!!!! LOL

Visited "The Conciergerie " (taken from the river)
The Gothic Palace where the horrors of the French revolution linger on. Prisoners spent their last days there before being led to the guillotine.

Gothic Chamber
The Grooming Room .... the night before execution prisoners were stripped of their personal possessions and their heads were shaved before being executed ( this really was very eerie and left you with a very sad feeling).

Mock up of a "High Class" prisoner's cell
Replica of Marie-Antoinette's cell...she was permanently guarded by 2 Gendarmes in her cell who stood behind a screen,as you can see. She had no privacy.

They visited the Musee D L'Armee - Les Invalides... seeing Napoleon's uniforms and his horse "Vizir" (the real one).
By the way...... don't mention alarms. He who was with her only set the alarms off not once but twice! She had visions of him being carted off in a blue and white van with sirens by the Gendarmes and coming home by herself!!
Having escaped detention on too........
Eglise Du Dome - the Golden Dome
It doesn't actually lean.. (we are most definately assured the photographer had not had a G&T!) it just happened.

Napoleon's Tomb

The dome above the tomb - absoutely stunning.
Meanwhile..... back on the Paris streets they considered the possibility of this truck for us?

The Bride and groom walked the streets!

Took an early morning boat ride with no one but themselves and the captain on it!

Someone actually living on the river bank....

Notre- Dame

The Fire Brigade practising hose manoeuver's..apparently they had to move inside the boat as they passed the hose! LOL

They had an absolutely fabulous trip they had saw lots more and ate some delicious french food and drank some lovely red vino!
When they eventually came back .... cos we had been such good thuglets in their absence
Our special treat!

We ate them so quick in the hope of some more there wasn't time for photos and there wasn't any seconds! Ellie...not bad!
YIKES..Cora we have got company! says Teddy
Teddy I'll try and keep you hidden Cora

What do ya all think ... Teddy is it big enough? asks Cora

Do have a good look Teddy

Teddy ..........I was only checkin it out!

It looks like it has great potential ....says everyone. But we can't get 4 of us in together yet, like your last one Cora
Cora.....It's no good...not big enough..so back to some serious diggin!!!!

So life at basecamp thuglet is getting back to Normal! Cora is still diggin..but we heard rumbling the hole is to be filled! Teddy is to get an airestrip! Right we're off.....

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Oh thank you so much for the fab tour of Paris. We've never been but have heard even the dogs speak French there. We only know 2 words and they're both the same:
Oui, oui!! bol. Your pack is the best group of hole diggers we have ever met. Good to see our AirePaws can be put to better use than just giving the heavyPaw on mom's arm!
Smooches from pooches,
BabyRD and Hootie (wee-wee)

Oh what a wonderful trip to Paris your people shared with you. It was very thoughtful that they were reminded of you when they saw the Belgian Dale.

Our Moma just saw many of the same sights in photos that OurGirl's piano teacher took this summer ... now she's doubly wishing she could go visit that beautiful city.

Wouldn't it be fun if all us dogs could meet up there? In Paris? What a gay time we'd have!

Jake and Fergi xxoo

You guys make us laugh with all that digging. Looks like a fun group project you have got going on there. We bet the peeps could not have had nearly as much fun as that in Paris; B-O-R-I-N-G!
