Sunday 18th -Father's Day.

Totkat rang to wish MWNN a happy father's day. It's not been a good one as we are packing to leave for England after taking jennylyle to the station at 7 am tomorrow. It's too hot to do anything but MWNN gallantly vacuumed and scrubbed the floor this morning, lost a filling and chunk of molar during lunch, and is busily ferrying boxes and bags to store in tha garage until tomorrow.

We're travelling very slowly, staying overnight at Dijon on Monday, San Quentin on Tuesday and Boulogne on Wednesday. I downloaded a list of Passport for Pets' friendly vets and we are keeping our fingers crossed that the one in San Quentin will be able to do the treatment and paperwork for us. We booked a high speed ferry from Boulogne instead of using the tunnel - £25 plus £15 for Loony GSD against £90 and £30 on the tunnel.

We'll be packed and on the road on Qkellie's wedding day. May it be all you've dreamed and planned, Mrs T.-to-be.

There was me thinking that I hadn't heard anything from you for ages, and then this appears on my friends page. I checked your journal and there are a whole bunch of entries I've not seen!

Have a safe trip home. How long are you back for?

Ouch. I'm just getting caught up on your adventures and it looks like they are almost over!

Sounds like it is just as well for Loony GSD. My boys have arthritis as well. Most of the time they are all right but then they take spells, and it just breaks your heart because there is so little you can do.

I took that hydofoil on my way back from UK to France (they didn't have the Chunnel then) and let me tell you that it beats the shite out of the slow boat! Oh. my. god is the slow boat slow and after half the night at a Paris night club it will turn you inside out!!!

It's not the same vessel. I suspect you took the hovercraft if it was pre-tunnel. The thing we came back on is a trimarin and it cuts through the roughest waves. We crossed in a force 6 and it was a tad bumpy but took only 50 minutes from Boulogne to Dover.
