Deccy and KC arrive in Canada!

Beckett here today, giving you an update on Deccy & Beccy's Excellent Adventure.

On the day we were to pick up Declan and KC at the dock in Saint John, the limo driver I had hired was late.  Apparently he had to call his insurance agent.  Something about the liability of carrying 4 greyhounds and a cat in his car.

Eventually we arrived at the cruise ship, but Deccy and KC were nowhere to be found.  We did meet up with KC, who said that Declan has gone off to the Sardine Factory to get a few treats...

Once he came back, we all got to know one another in the fur.  After some sniffing, we made our way to Nanny's house, where KC is spending her week.

We were all exhausted, but the girls, Veil, Maddy and KC appeared to be getting along famously.  I fear this does not bode well for Deccy and I. They seem to be pretending to sleep while hatching some plan...Anyway, I was too exhausted to worry about that at the time.

While we are waiting for Mum to turn up with the Mustang, Nanny Jean showed Deccy around her home town of Sussex. Apparently it has the nickname of Cow Town, as it is a major producer of dairy products. Nanny thought this would be of particular interest, what with Deccy being a Bloo Moo dog. he couldn't resist having his photo taken with the famous Sussex Cows.......

Declan and I got an early start the next morning...I thought it was nice that the girls were so interested in seeing us off... although they were giggling immensely.

Later on we discovered why!

We made our way to Cape Breton, although the first night our reservations somehow got mixed up by the hotel and we ended up sleeping in the car in the parking lot of a somewhat questionable take-out, we were off on our adventure the next morning. Note:  Two greyhounds sleeping in a small car after eating boiled coloured eggs and sardines is not a good mix.

We started our sight-seeing tour...

and went out on a whale-watching boat.  The deck was a bit slippery and I may have gotten a little dizzy....

 We ended up getting up close and personal with the whales.

Well, that's all for now, hopefully my brindles dry out soon and we find a place to sleep tonight...


  1. I can see there are going to be a lot of laughs on this tour! don't look like a cow until you're next to cows and! Beckett...remember to be the "voice of reason" when things start getting crazy. Can't wait to see what's next.

  2. Beckett the voice of reason?....hehehe! More worried about your Brindles than drying out mate! But man are we having fun! I'll be a little sad to leave on Saturday....

  3. How fun! Have a great visit.

  4. Oh wow, I am seriously jealous! Looks like you guys are having a fantastic time. I hope you've got the rest of your accommodation sorted out now: nice comfy beds and room service...

    Big WOOFS from Solo :-)

  5. Lol, KC has got such a wicked sense of humour! Probably just as well she's a cat and not a Greyhound ... although I don't really know why! Good to see the boys having such a wonderful time. Beryl is pleased to see the girls staying home, she was a bit worried about Deccy spending lots of time with Veil and Maddy xxxx

    PS I keep calling Riley, my foster dog, Beckett!

  6. Deccy fits right in at Sussex. Glad they didn't try to milk him :) I'm sure the girls are having lots of fun telling crazy stories about you boys.

  7. Great pictures and captions! Thanks for sharing!
