Pick A Dilly at the Circus!!!

You'd think we'd all be exhausted with all that pawtyin' at the Tower last night....NO WAY!!! We're ready to have a FAB tour of London today...Eric did an amazin' job of organizin' our stay!!! Regardin' the above pic, I had no idea the size of some of the attractions here in this Burg....

Look at the lovely hotel Eric set us up in...it's Claridges...and simply splendid...the facilities are so luxurious and are appointed so elegantly! It was one of Spencer Tracy's favorite places to stay...Afternoon tea is something to behold...I wish we could stay until the holiday season...the decorations are rumored to be spectacular!!




Check out this bathroom for the girls...plenty of room for blowdryers, makeup, bubblebaths, and amazin' games of chase on that marble! In this pic, Koobie is sittin' on the well, throne...with Poppy, Maggie, me (giggle!), and Asta in the tubbie....Patches is enjoyin' the cool floor and Duffy is slippin' all over the place peekin' at us girls in the tub. (My those foxy boys learn early, don't they!) Clover and Lorenza are already dressed and waitin' for the rest of us to hurry up!




Before we left for our tour, we thought we might quench our thirst in the BAR! Harry is here in his Mummy costume...Riley seems to be checkin' Sunny out again, Petey and I are havin' a tete a tete that kept gettin' interrupted by that Dyos...cramps my social style, that one... Babystan is havin' a snuggle with his lovepup, Cassidy...and Koobie and Scruffy seem to be enjoyin' a private joke in the corner. Duffy, thank Dog, is passed out on the counter...FINALLY, the Puppy Smoothies have kicked in!



After this debacle the other day (you can click on this pic now...I was havin' technical difficulties before...) we decided to take the bus!







One of these amazing Double Deckers!!! How fun is this??!!





Scruffy and Koobie are hangin' out here with Babystan...behind them are Balboa and Ben the Rotti...Toffee's pantin' over Eric again...Sunny, Dexter and Asta are bringing up the front. Keiko, Gussie, Joe Stains (what's with the robe?), Gooberstan, Scooter, me and that crazy Fuzzbrat, the Duffster are hangin' out on the right. Check out the poster of the Wheelies in the back..."ERIC FREE ZONE"...what is that about? Hmm...Wheelies United seems to be everywhere these days....



In the Tube the other day, we saw this sign for a famous circus! Eric cautioned us that it was misnamed.... just a traffic circle, but we took the bus over to check it out.....










Eric almost passed out....there was an amazin' circus there!!!!! Lions, tigers, elephants and wheelies!!! Myrna's hangin' out with the elephant, Blue's wheelie is checkin' out the natural foliage, three confusin' Koobies are hangin' out in disguise... In the tree Gilbert is wondering why Jake's and Just Harry's Wheelies are standin' on his head....Jackson's Wheelie Seymour is lookin' for me...we have a date after the tour...Um...BTW....the tree is a one of the very rare Pickle Trees. There aren't many places in the world where you can go and Pick A Dilly!!!!!

Mango had a bad run-in with the phone booth the other day...he was tryin' to call Momma and the booth sorta sank. He tried to make the call again today...we decided to climb in with him...you know...how many dogs can fit in...well, you get the pic. The blender seems to be empty. Eric looks very nervous...Faya is lookin' after Dyos, thank Dog...she doesn't seem to be havin' any more luck that I do with him. I hope Asta can get out of this damaged booth. Stan's expression seems to say it all about this weekend. Um...I think I see one of those Bobbies comin' this way...ah...he's runnin'...come on dogs....GET THE BLENDER!!!

Looks like quite the vacation. I should have gone to London, since I speak perfect English. We speak English at home. We're actually from Western Canada originally, so me and mom speak way better English than French. I speak much better French than my mom does and most of my doggie pals are French. I picked it up right away, and because mom is now so used to talking to dogs en Fran├žaise, she does it without even thinking about. She's not as good with people. Every time she tells someone to sit, they look at her like she's crazy.

Eric said...

Lacie my lovely...oooooh can't yap for laughing, your pictures are doglightful!!!!. Wasn't that a wag when we swapped masks? Ha,haaa!!!And I was amazed at the sights at Picalilli Circus. I'm thinking I may go there at Christmas wearing my spottie neck ruffle and jump through some hoops..to earn some extra money.Always been my ambition to run away and join the circus you know. And the pickled gherkins, onions and beetroots were scrumptious even if those wheelies had um...watered that tree.Oh yeah, Wheelies United.On the BUS. I'm going to get 'em .You seem well aquainted with them, do you have their address? London Transport Police want to know.Something to do with fines for fare dodging - you can send care of me? And the Phone Police areafter Mango for damages to one of our most iconic boxes. there are hardly any left, now one less..mm need to lie low for a while me thinks.

Smoothies were moreish but those niptinis in pawticular have made me a bit woozy..Toffee seems to think I want to show her my crown jewels but as I've been wearing them for most of the time on my head I'm a bit 'fused what she's talking about. Can you xplain that to me ?

Wags of loving and huggin' Eric x x x x x x x
