welcome to another set of adventures with me – Claude
the French Barbet underground I got word that most Barbets
in the UK were to take Southampton by storm. It would
be a full blown attack from North, South, East and West.
We would take no prisoners and if we did they would be
seriously licked to death.
was going to be loosely disguised as a Barbet Party….the
humans wouldn’t know what hit them once we were
altogether and we had contrived a cunning plan?
of us Barbets knew what it was – but it was very
me in the middle of this Barmy army – sorry, Barbet
army group photo you will see from left to right:
Combat Barbet’s, then some Ninja Barbet’s
in black, me, and more Ninja Barbet’s
pretended to smell the grass, and generally look disinterested
in the humans around us and slowly but surely lead them
into a false sense of security.
cunning plan was working and they suspected nothing……
When the time was right we would strike!!!
our business, keeping our heads down not to attract too
without warning – we struck, and WHAM
– that’s my brother on the left, then my sister,
me, and my mom on the right.
by the way, we’re at the front!!! Forget the prisoners
behind us……they’re just posers!!
took our first prisoners. Disarmed and helpless we took
this photo to record the first successful strike of the
English French Barbet Underground…….Vive la
it was the turn of the Spins to feel the wrath of EFBU…….
prepared a ridiculous water bowl for us all (under duress
I might add) and we made him our chief cook and bottle
washer for the raid. His reward was…………er………urm……..well
to be honest with you he should have been honored just
to have been allowed to serve us…
are Barbet’s after all!!
Spins were soon spread far and wide and they knew there
place and it wasn’t with us. Our plan was not to
cause a diplomatic incident and upset the Italians –
not yet anyway!!
plan ‘B’ – but that is still under wraps
– you know – top secret and all that kind
humans just put out a normal water bowl, the Spin was
soon dispatched away leaving me in the way of the hose
ran for cover and jumped on top of it instead and the
bloody thing bounced me straight off again. A cunning
human weapon this, but given I was running for cover and
jumped on it then I suppose I have to take some of the
blame. But Jimmy was very accurate with that hose……..
him…..we shall meet again mon amie
Captain of the Ninja Barbet’s wanted a private word
with me and although I was running into a defensive position
back to where the humans were being kept he stealthily
caught up with me…….I didn’t even hear
or see him, even in broad daylight….wow, they’re
you know how to Foxtrot”?
you know how to Foxtrot”?
I know how to chase one but not trot like one”?
you idiot” “it’s a dance”
No sir, I do not know how to trot like fox”
you’re an idiot”
said I would lead, now put your leg down and let me be
Sacre bleu Captain…….make your mind up”
getting tired, and if this works I’m going to look
so bloody stupid out in the field with the guns and stopping
to ask the fox if it wants a last dance”
call yourself a Ninja”?
seen more stealth in a fluorescent light”
trying to hide from that lunatic Dancing Ninja Barbet”
the Spins at home saw me, I would have to pack my bags
and leave – so embarrassing”
you keep quiet there will be no more raids I promise”
“But this mustn’t get out into the press”
World would have a field day with this”
so peeps…..a real life adventure and despite months
of planning, a real disaster.
nevertheless a great day out, as I look back and smile
I guess it turned out alright in the end.
likes happy endings
revoir peeps until next time……
