YMCA Cigarette Dog delivery service during WW1. ‘Mutt’ a “trench runner” Frenchie delivered cigarettes and comfort to the soldiers. He was wounded twice and spent most of WW1 boosting moral of the 11th Engineers, shown here carrying cartons of cigarettes for the troops.
So back from a quick trip to Prague to meet my new competition. A dog! How can one compete against such a tiny thing, only 2 months old and can fit in my lap. Didnt think I would like the little one, want my dogs big… but such a fearless little thing got my heart straight away but not sure if he liked me staying in the same bed as my girlfriend 🙂
So only 2 more months until I move to Prague and am soooo looking forward to this next step in my life.
Am enjoying my 4th cup of coffee now since 5am (aahh). Enjoying a day off since for some reason there is a bankholiday in the UK (not really sure why but I don’t mind.). But of course my plan of trying to sleep in was discarded when 5am I just woke up and no way of getting back to sleep. So 4 cuppa later there is definitely not a chance of going to sleep
