Bertie and Croc have been a little hit and miss with their blog posts in the past few weeks and it is time to reveal why….
As it got closer and closer to Christmas, Bertie and Croc were surprised to find that they had sat on the living room coffee table for some time. In fact, Bertie was beginning to worry he would get dust in his fur. Croc, being accustomed to sitting still for several days at a time, wasn’t too bothered by remaining stationary. He was, however, bothered about the many cards which kept appearing on a daily basis and taking over the small remaining space next to him. he refused to move over but then he was also worried he may disappear under a mountain of paper never to be seen again!
“What on earth is going on?” Whispered Croc to Bertie. They had never been left alone for this long before.
“I’m not sure” Bertie replied. “But I plan to find out. Come on!”
Grabbing his friends paw he made his way carefully down from the coffee table and began to explore his surroundings.
There was the usual stools and books in the way, creating huge obstacles for the two, tiny friends. There was also something distinctly new. Bertie made a be line for this. It felt the best place to start. As they carefully climbed up the side of the basket which was perched near the warmth of the radiator they heard an odd noise. Both friend froze and looked at each other.
A dog! Thought Bertie. They must have brought a dog!!!
He was praying silently that the dog liked bears and wasn’t the type of dog which would pull a small bear to pieces. He shuddered at the thought and decided it would be best not to mention anything to Croc.
As they peered over the top of the basket both friends stopped in shock! It wasn’t a dog…..
“It’s a baby!” Said Bertie in shock!!! No wonder their family had been distracted.
The two friends looked at each other. “What do we do now?” Asked Croc. “Well” Said Bertie “I guess this is the start of a whole new adventure!”
To all my blogging friends, please bear with me if my posts are inconsistent. I may be slightly distracted for a while with our new arrival! I will try to continue to post about Bertie and Croc’s adventures when ever I can. Thank you 🙂
