Cats go to London to look at the Queen.

Dogs go to look at elephants!! This one is called 'Simply Yellow'. Mummy said that's just like me, especially the simply bit. Don't know what that means.

We walked along the Queen's Walk. I didn't see the Queen, even if she was walking. You'd think she would have been there with her corgis but she wasn't. There were soooo many new things to smell I was kept very busy. Then we went into the Galleria and mummy and daddy had chicken and cheese bagels with barbeque sauce. I wanted one with sausage but no one asked me. I got a bit of mummy's though (not a very big bit...)

We walked across Tower Bridge. Mummy said it's fun to stand on either side of the gap at the middle and wait for a big bus to go past. I didn't think it was much fun. I preferred paddling in the water I found near that Galleria. I love having wet paws. I wanted to go for a swim in the big river. I kept pulling daddy over there but he wouldn't let me go in. I don't see why not. Anyway, he can swim so he could have come with me. He's no fun.

We met some men from America who had 4 labradors at home. They said they were missing their doggies and asked if they could fuss me. I let them. I'm good like that.

Then we came home and I FINALLY got my lunch :-)

It's a jungle out there!

Colin had a day off today so we went elephant hunting again. We started off in Baker Street where we found Sherlock Holmes.

Then we went to Selfridges. We saw six there but we couldn't find Gerald!! We found the Emerald Queen though and yes, those are REAL emeralds on her head! No wonder that one's not outside on the streets!!!

Then we went to Covent Garden and saw another six, including this one. Not the first one of those I've ever seen!!!!
We went down to the embankment and saw 2 by Cleopatra's Needle and a few more by the London Eye, including James Bond!

Then we wandered down to Waterloo where there just happens to be a fine knitting shop....
Then it was home time. I don't know if we will get to go hunting again but it's been a lot of fun.

Oh I do like to be.....

Beside the seaside!!!!

Mummy and Daddy took me to Leysdown yesterday for my first dip in the sea of the year.

I had sooooo much fun - I did racing through the waves....

I did jumping over the breakwaters......

I did fetching stuff......

And I had a picnic lunch. There's no piccy of that cos mummy says her camera only goes up to 1/3000th speed and that's not fast enough to catch me eating. Dunno what she means by that??

I've been shooting elephants!

Only with my camera though!!!!

We went up to London yesterday to hunt for the elephants from Elephant Parade 2010, an art installation to raise awareness of the risk to elephants worldwide. The elephants are on display all over London until 23rd June and then will be auctioned to raise money for the cause.

Mrs Stripe - Hyde Park
We got to Selfridges at 10:50 to see the ones in there. Unfortunately it didn't open until 11:30!! We therefore decided to walk down to Marble Arch and Hyde Park. We saw several in Hyde Park and then walked on to Green Park, where there were lots more.
Kissed by Lulu Guiness (and me, wishing I could take it home!!)
Carnaby Street
We then hopped on the train back to Oxford Circus. We saw some more in Cavendish Square and Carnaby Street and then we walked down to Picadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square. After that we went on to St James Park.
Rangoli in Cavendish Square
After a sit down (and cake) in House of Fraser at Victoria we decided to call it a day and come home.

Dazzlephant in Hyde Park
We saw over 50 elephants (and walked MILES, wish I'd remembered my pedometer!!) and had lots of fun but as there are 258 in total (including one at Heathrow Terminal 5) I don't think we'll manage to see them all! Still, we will go back again to hunt some more. When our feet have recovered!!!!!
