Winter "Get-A-Way" in the PKW - Pawt 3 (final)

Our second night (Saturday) was very pleasant. We went and visited Win and his wife, then we went back to the PKW for dinner. The evening weather was cold, but not very windy and rainy.

However, after breakfast on Sunday, it rained a bit (see the drops on the windows) - just enough to interrupt my morning walkies.

Then the sun came out.

When dad dad went over to Win's shack to take over our camp chairs and my bed and stuff - I had to watch his every move out the back window.

Finally our "family do" started and the bonfire was lit and peeps started to arrive. I was all set with my picnic blankie and comfy bed. See the peeps warming their bum bums at the fire?? Bol!

Can you see that I was not the only dawg at this "shin-dig". My dad dad's cousin is rapidly losing his eye sight.... so he has an assistance dawg. One that helps him see and stuff. I was a little "rat bag" when this dawg first arrived and had to bust myself barkin'. However, once we had mutual smellings.... we both settled down and looked at one another over the bonfire. Later we got to socialise a bit more.

There were excellent foodables.... in fact I didn't get my dawg dinner because mum said I scored big-time ...... nibbles from the BBQ including sausage, pork, chicken, cabana, pumpkin tart and  peanuts too! It was mind boggling-good tucker my furiends!

I even had a run off leash before the sun went down (and most peeps had gone home) and had a run through the sea edges when my peeps were back by the shack. Bol! You shoulda seen the look on ma's face when I came back all happy and wets!! PRICELESS. She towelled me off and we stayed by the fire until I was dry.

Win kept the fire burnin' into the night and we got to help eat lunch leftovers for dinner (nom noms).

It was getting quite late and quite cold and my pink towel wasn't warm enough ..... so after this picture was taken mum went back to the PKW and came back with my sheepskin coat. Then I was toasty warm and listening to all the camp-fire talk. Boy those peeps can talk!!

Our last night saw the weather turn nasty again - more wind and pelting rain - just like in Scotland Bertie!! Bol! In the morning there was a pond at the base of our PKW steps!!

Home we went after stopping in on Win at the shack. It was a great weekend - but ma said it was hard work managing my paws..... every time I got into the PKW there was washing and drying of my paws. THAT was a little TIRESOME..... but we dawgs gotta suck it up .... it pays to keep the peeps happy!!

Hope you enjoyed my PKW adventure - we kinda hope the weather will be better the next trip out!!


  1. Just like in Scotland indeed Rubie. Except possibly with better foodables! Oh but I know all about that tedious muddy paw wiping business. Actually, I think Gail has given up trying to keep the eleven year old Mini clean...
    Toodle pip!

  2. Muddy paws...is that all she has to whinge about? It's good for her to bend over. Pawsome get together....all that food. AND you'll have all that frozen bacon to have when you get home!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  3. Looks like you had a fun time round the camp fire Rubie with pawsome foodables. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Looks like you had a really great day Rubie! Oh, you shouldn't bark doggies! But, heyho! Your all dogs, nothing wrong with a bit doggie talk!! ;)

    Remember to follow us back!


    Have a wonderful day!

    Jessica, Charlie Boy, Roman and Brooke xxxx

  7. That was a fabulous trip!! I like laying by a fire and doze off as peeps talk.

  8. Sounds like the pawfect get together all around and a great weekend.

  9. OMD RUBIE... what a FABULOUS FANGtastic time you had in your PKW and at Win's Shack. We loved that FIRE you had. The foodables sound delicious. We also have to suffer the RUDE paw washing thingys. They just do that to Wash away our FOND Memories.

  10. What a great time. Camping sure looks fun. We love that you have your own little blanket by the campfire. Hope you got some foodables
    Benny & Lily
