We left home just after lunchtime bones (!!)...you should have seen all the stuff that was packed into the car...luckily there was plenty of room for Radar n me in the back but I think Mum & Dad were a bit squashed up!

Saturday, 3rd July
Mum & Dad went to something called a wedding today but we weren't allowed to go (SO unfair!!) so, instead, we spent the day with Kathy & Lewis...they took us for some great walks in Holyrood Park & spoilt us loads by giving us some yummy treats & chicken wings.
Sunday, 4th July
In the morning Mum & Dad took us for a walk to Arthur's Seat which is in the middle of Holyrood Park - Mum was a bit concerned that the walk would be too much for me coz I'm only little...she didn't have to worry..I managed no problem!! Here's a picture of Arthur's Seat followed by a bit of information about it that you might find interesting reading!!
"Arthur's Seat is the main peak of the group of hills which form most of Holyrood Park, a wild piece of highland landscape in the centre of the city of Edinburgh, about a mile to the east of Edinburgh Castle. The hill rises above the city to a height of 251 m (823 ft), provides excellent panoramic views of the city, is quite easy to climb, and is a popular walk. Though it can be climbed from almost any direction, the easiest and simplest ascent is from the East, where a grassy slope rises above Dunsapie Loch.
Like the castle rock on which Edinburgh Castle is built, it was formed by an extinct volcano system of Carboniferous age (approximately 350 million years old), which was eroded by a glacier moving from west to east during the Quaternary (approximately the last two million years), exposing rocky crags to the west and leaving a tail of material swept to the east. This is how the Salisbury Crags formed and became basalt cliffs between Arthur's Seat and the city centre. From some angles, Arthur's Seat resembles a lion couchant. Two of the several extinct vents make up the 'Lion's Head' and the 'Lion's Haunch'."

Today we left Edinburgh & started our journey home but our holiday was definitely not over as we had a few more stops to make! Before we left though, Radar & me had a bit of quality time playing with Lewis...he's such a cute hooman!!
Here's me listening to Lewis talking about his tiger!

Wednesday, 7th July
We stayed last night with Uncle Mike & Aunty Jane again but in the morning we had to say goodbye & head south again...I was very sad coz I really liked the Lake District...I'll have to try to persuade Dad to take us there again one day...I want to walk some more Wainwrights!!!!
We planned to stay at the camp site in Bewdley again tonight but we still had time to pop in to say "hi" to Nigel & have a quick play with Poppy on the way. Here's some photos of Poppy & me:
Isn't Poppy is pretty girl?!
Oh come on Pops...please, please play with me!!
Ok Poppy, you hide & I'll try to find you!!
After leaving Nigel & Poppy's place we drove (well Dad drove actually!!) to Bewdley & to the camp site where Mum & Dad set up the tent again for the night. Before bed, we went to see Geoff & Jenny again. Radar & me had a really good night's sleep in the tent...Radar decided he was going to put his duvet right next to Mum...I then cuddled up on top of Radar...I like this tent sleeping stuff!!!!
8th July 2010
In the morning, Dad took Radar & me for a walk next to the river...Mum stayed at the camp site so she could catch up with some sleep...apparently Radar & me kept her awake last night with our snoring!!!!
Then, after lunch, we set off again & I got the BIGGEST BESTEST surprise ever...you'll never guess where we went! We went to see my doggie Dad (Digby) & my hooman Granny Lynn & Grandad Roy...I was so excited to see them!! Granny Lynn wanted me to practice "standing" ready for the shows Mum's entered me for...I wasn't too keen as I'd been in the car for ages but I did manage to stand still long enough for Mum to take one reasonable photo of me!!! Here's a Smilebox of the pictures...plus there's a few of Dad & me getting to know each other!!

At this stage I just want to apologise for my big bruv's behaviour while we were seeing Granny & Grandad...do you want to know what happened...I bet you do!! Granny Lynn breeds chickens & ducks...they walk round the garden all the time quite happily coz Granny's 4 vizzies are used to them - can you see where this is going...bet you can?!
Well...Radar was walking round the garden & met Granny's PRIZE cockerel...he followed him around for a bit & then decided he wanted to play...oh dear...not a good idea! Radar grabbed the cockerel by the tail feathers and.............the cockerel ran away leaving Radar with a mouth full of feathers. Luckily the cockerel was ok but Mum was mortified...I thought she was going to cry as she was REALLY embarrassed!!!! I think/hope Granny Lynn has forgiven her & Radar!
Well back to our holiday stuff...after we left Granny & Grandad we went to Cirencester to see Grandma Iris again...more licks for her!! Then it was home to Bournemouth - Radar & me were pretty sad that it was the end of our brilliant holiday but it was REALLY good to be home again.
Thanks Dad & Mum for a great time!
