Key West Day 1 – Doggy Nappies and Girly Shopping

After a loooong day’s travelling, involving a train, a bus and two flights, I woke up on a boat this morning. Or rather, a floating house. And if I crane my neck just a little bit more, I think I might be able to spot Cuba in the distance…

For the next two weeks, I’ll be posting from Key West, Florida. I’m staying with my dear friends Vicky and Ian, who moved to the sunny little isle from cold and drizzly London a year ago.

My view onto the pier this morning. In case anyone's wondering, that strange pink thing on the washing line is a dog nappy (diaper), as worn by Princess Pugsy. She had a stroke a while ago and is no longer in full control of her waterworks.

My view of the marina this morning. In case anyone’s wondering, that strange pink “garment” on the washing line is a dog nappy (diaper), as worn by Princess Pugsy. She had a stroke a few months ago and is no longer in full control of her plumbing.

And here she is, giving a live demonstration of her very best of heartbreakingly pathetic looks

And here she is, Princess Pugsy, who travelled from the UK to the US in style, voyaging across the seas on the Queen Mary II, because my friends didn’t want to subject her to being sedated (Pugs don’t handle the medication well) and shoved into an aircraft hold

My first day in Key West featured some girly shopping (of course!!!!) and what better purchase to make than a pink leopard print rucksack with a matching pair of knickers

      Ah, a Boston terrier! I was thinking French bulldog, lol.
      Pugsy is a pug, thoroughbred and thoroughly stupid, to an annoying degree at times. Very cute, though.
