Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside

by bernarddog14

I have been sobusy this blog has kind of taken a back seat. Bernard is eager to say hello.. This was our valentines day photo..

IMG_0401.JPGOver half term, we took him on his first holiday! We went to the North East – a place my family have loved forever. We found a dog friendly hotel in Bamburgh called the Victoria, it was reasonable prices and only an extra £7.50 for B to come – winner! The hotel is rightnear the beach so, of course, we spent all our time there!

Our main beach day was the Wednesday, and my friend came down from Edinburgh (she’s at uni there) to see us for the day! This is me, Joanna and B modelling the castle..

IMG_0070.JPGIt was a gorgeous day, just cold – but we can cope with that 😉

Anyway.. This was our journey..




IMG_0095.JPGFor me, this isn’t a lot of photos. And there’s a reason why. Brave yourselves.

You know those moments in life where you can see into the future and can just tellwhat is going to happen? Well…. Bernard was off his lead the entire walk to Seahouses (a small town 3 miles away) and he was fabulous! He didn’t jump up at any dogs or people for that matter, and came when we shouted him. Until he saw some seagulls..

He decided that he was going to try and fly. Of course, he didn’t succeed. He chased them off a ledge and jumped into the sea, a wave took him under and it was the longest5 seconds of my life. I was about to jump in after him when the little bugger came out looking slightly dazed but very pleased with himself.

We thought that was the end of it, but turns out swallowing sea water makes dogs so sick. He was sick in a cafe, and alllllll night in the hotel. It felt like we had a child! We had to leave at 5am the following day – partly for the hotels benefit but mainly because we just wanted to get him home. And of course once we were back, he was fine!!

But we are on speaking terms now and he is absolutely fine! Hope everyone else is okay! We will be on here more often!! S&B x
