Bath turned out to be a place crammed with buildings, thick with people and lots of weird smells. Boss explained this was a Town and no sniffing or misbehaving allowed. To get there I experienced riding in a very tall box with circular legs, stairs, tickets and many directionally confused occupants who kept getting on and off – they had obviously lost the scent.
While padding round Bath I waited outside a very large building called The Abbey (see photo) while viewing went on inside. I am learning the new word ‘stay’ which confusingly sounds like ‘play’ but means the opposite and involves me sitting still in one place while the Boss walks away, then I get up and follow him. I am not sure this is correct as we have to repeat it so many times that I get bored, lay down and just ignore him, at which point he praises me. Will I ever understand Boss talk?
Back at home I have been introduced to another small version of the Boss. I envy this one as he is allowed to sleep peacefully in his bed, experience much petting and gets fed when he makes a loud noise ….. I wish.
