Muddy in Loughrea


The other day I went to the west of Ireland with one of my humans and our friend Maureen to a place near Loughrea in County Galway.  We went to visit another friend called Mark Boyle, who apparently is famous for being the 'Moneyless Man'.  I don't know what is so special about that, I have never had any money myself and I am almost 7 years old!  Also you can't even eat money...  Now he does have money though and a lovely house and a big, muddy garden.  Instead he has now given up computers and telephones (which I still don't think is very special... I only use the computer to write this blog)


He doesn't live in the big house though, but in this small one:




One day we went for a nice walk through the woods with lots of other doggies, which was fun.  There we discovered the ruin of a very big house, which used to belong to an English landlord, who the locals didn't like much.  So they burned his house:




At night we stayed in this house that used to be an old pig barn and is called the Happy Pig.  I wasn't allowed to sleep on the nice comfy sofas though because I got so muddy playing outside.  I was a wee bit upset about that.

Good Mourne-ing


Our friend Nigel has come to visit us all the way from England.  S yesterday we went to some mountains near us called the Mourne Mountains in County Down.




It was a lovely sunny day, it was so warm that my humans even turned colour.

There is a long stone wall in the mountains, which I think is so big you can see from space!


It's been built to keep the sheep out of the water apparently.


We climbed one of the mountains called Slieve Bernagh.  It took us hours and we had to clamber over a lot of rocks.  My humans were a bit slow, so I had to pull them along.

We had a great day and at the end we were all very tired.






We also went over a bit called Hare's Gap, but my humans wouldn't let me chase any hares.

Awfully Nice Time in Offaly




It's been a while since my last blog post.  I haven't been anywhere much recently and my humans even went away without me for a while, and I always wanted to go to New Zealnd too!  Anyway, we went down to Southern Ireland for a couple of days to visit some friends.  They live in a place called Kinnity in County Offaly.  It was beautiful spring weather and was even quite warm.  In the morning we went on a lovely long walk through the forest along a river.


When we came out of the forest we saw an old house and a stone circle.  I think it was some giants playing dice a long time ago.

Next we saw a castle and we could even have a look inside.




Soon we had to walk back, because we had to drive all the way back home.


It was so hot that I had to cool off in the river afterwards.  That was nice...

With Susan in Susa


On our recent travels we stopped for lunch coming from Switzerland to our old home in Italy at a place called Susa in Piemonte in the mountains.  It's funny because one of my humans is called Susan.  We didn't stay very long, but it was a pretty place anyway and I was glad to be out of the car for a while in the fresh air.

Jolly Time in Geneva

After Germany we went to a country called Switzerland where we visited some old friends in a place called Geneva.  The next morning we had a walk through the city, which is next to a lake with a mighty big fountain.  We had a jolly time there.
