So, apparently some Wee White Dug imposter has been travelling around a place called the Big Apple and pretending to be me. I don’t even like apples, so I’d never visit a giant one. I like beefy treats, so the Big Beefy Treat sounds more like my kind of town. Funnily enough, Mum & Dad went to America recently and I think that’s where the apple place is so I suspect that they may have something to do with the imposter dug.
Here’s his trail of deception:
Seems he caught a flight from Edinburgh Airport, which is very close to where I live.
While in New York he appears to have gone on a sightseeing frenzy.
Empire State Building
Anyone who knows me knows I wouldn’t go up that big building. There’s a big ape swiping aeroplanes at the top of it. He’s way too scary for me to want to meet him.
The views look scary too and the street below is a looooooooong way down.
Not content with just going up the Empire State Building, I apparently also went to the Top of the Rock or the Rockerfeller Center so I could look at it some more.
That’s the imposter with the Empire State Building behind him. Underneath you can see Central Park in the view. The phoney Wee White Dug visited there too.
Now that’s somewhere I think I’d like. Phoney me seemed to love it.
Although, come to think of it maybe not. I watched a movie once about a wee boy who stayed all alone in a fancy hotel called The Plaza. These bad guys chased him in the park. I think they were called the Sticky Bandits. In another movie there was an evil wizard in there called Gargamel. He was trying to hurt some wee blue guys called Smurfs. Central Park probably isn’t for me after all.
It seems the fake me covered a lot of ground in that Big Apple as he also took a boat ride to visit a huuuuuuuuge big green lady in the water, called Lady Liberty or the Statue of Liberty. She was a present from France. Boy they must have had to use an awful lot of wrapping paper on that present.
She looks a bonnie big lass but there’s no way my wee legs would manage all of those stairs inside.
I’m a bit scared of her anyway as in another movie I saw her walking through the streets of that Big Apple and it was full of ghosts. I’d have hidden.
Mum and Dad are crazy, as they actually went to see where those Ghostbusters guys work. What if a ghost had escaped and got into Mum’s handbag and she brought it home with her? I must check in the closet and under the bed tonight just in case.
Mum and Dad seem to like to put themselves at risk on holiday as they also went to the American Museum of Natural History where everything comes to life at night! Mum wanted to see Dum Dum, but she could have been chased by dinosaurs, marauding Huns or even slapped across the face by that aggressive monkey.
The imposter visited some beautiful indoor palm trees at a winter garden and even met a gigantic rabbit. Rather him than me, as the more I see the scarier this apple place looks.
Mum said near here is a very sad part of town, where a really bad thing happened and a lot of poor innocent people died. It made her cry when she visited. She said there are beautiful memorial pools now to remember the poor people who died, but some horrible tourists stand beside them smiling and snap photos of themselves with selfie sticks. Mum said those people have no respect and are called narcissists, which isn’t a very nice thing to be.
I think if the real me went here I’d need sunglasses as it looks very bright – so many lights. If my big sister leaves a light on at home Mum always shouts “switch that light off, it’s like Blackpool in here” so this must be what Blackpool looks like. I’m not sure if Mum did any shouting about the lights here.
If they were I forgive them as when they came home to Scotland they took me on holiday to a beautiful place called Assynt. We had a wonderful time. I’ll get Mum to share those adventures with you shortly.
Normal service will resume shortly, and we’ll be back to being a dog friendly Scottish travel blog with the one and only Wee White Dug.
