Once upon a time, a long time ago
PULFORD TALES ! the start of an online book for ADAM, GEORGE and not just kids of America as the song goes but of Pulford. To be a Childrens book one day.
111 EMERGENCY POLICE AND EMERGENCY INTERNATIONAL TELEPHONE NUMBER USABLE FROM LANDLINES AND MOBILES IN THE UK https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/112_(emergency_telephone_number) i must TEST this on UK and FOREIGN MOBILES ! has anyone tested this ?
what is wrong with this picture ? it has NO GUINEA PIGS on it ! now ALL animals need EXERCISE and FREEDOM ! 1st Lesson ! or they become UNHEALTHY and BORED and resort to destructive behaviour and depressions ! jaja !
so. All stories have a moral and lessons that can be learnt from them. One big mistake us humans make is to assume every living creature thinks like us ! wrong ! dogs think like dogs, guinea pigs think like guinea pigs not like humans ! so for example to think a dog is SMILING when it shows its TEETH to you in a big wide open mouth facial expression is very wrong ! showing TEETH means BACK OFF often in dog body language ! when we humans show our teeth in a smile it means we are happy ! dogs must find us very strange seeing us show our teeth so often like that hey !
Languages are important ! body languages, verbal languages, smell languages ! all sorts of things send out messages ! and we can misinterpret them.
Do not oppress a foreigner in your Land, for you also were once Strangers in Egypt. Would we be happy if when went somewhere other than our homes where people were nasty to us because we were not from there ? of course not ! that is unkind ! nasty ! not necessary ! we come in peace to enjoy pay money for things bought there, work there paying taxes and so should be welcomed ! this planet is plenty big enough for all of us ! It is just LUCK if we are somewhere that has plenty water and food and no wars ! would we not want to enjoy those things if we were stuck in a place troubled by such problems ? of course ! you think you placed an order to be born where you are born and live ? of course not ! it is just luck ! and all this climate change means some places are suffering more and more from our pollution etc !
a quote taken from the Old Testament where it apears MANY times in fact as a message ! jaja ! oldies are not always wrong hey ! mind you ! not everythng grown-ups tell you is always true or right i must whisper to you young'uns ! think about it ! and hopefully choose to follow a good path ! Chapter and Verse Exodus 22:21 and Deuteronomy 10:19 goes even FURTHER saying LOVE...<<And you are to love those who are foreigners, for you yourselves were foreigners in Egypt.>>
Once upon a time, all living things wandered the earth without passports. The birds and the bees, the wolves and the lambs that one day will again lie down together in peace together in the Garden of Eden to come.
In the meantime, we are faced with ENORMOUS challenges ! to sort our waste envelopes and tins and plastic bottles, jars into the correct huge disfiguring of our environment wheelie bins whose waste sometimes gets shipped out to further afield accross the seas dumps instead of being recycled ! no point thinking it is OK to pollute OUR PLANET like that just because it isn't in our back yards !
And the animals get rarer and rarer...hedghogs like most European Wildlife are some 70 percent less than only 20 years ago ! speaking now in 2015. And tigers and elephants also are on the road to extinction due to reduced habitats and most importantly lack of water more and more. Once upon a time, a long time ago.
So the Tales of Tiggie Winkles the Hedghog are needed to remember what once was.
THE TALES OF WHEEK OF PULFORD ! a short story about a Guinea Pig whose national origins are uncertain and doesn't have a passport.
Once upon a time, some mad hatters arrived in Pulford, which in olde English even more British original language Welsh means Crossing over the Marshland. A bridge still exists at the Grosvenor Hotel Spa Pub there. POOL FORD ! or even more ancient British ...the name of the village is derived from the Welshwords Pwll "marsh" and Ffordd "crossing" per WIKI LEAKS ! There are many SPORTY facilities around here both both 2 and 4 legged creatures ! Parks with Exercise bars, Woodland Trails for Doglanders to run free in, courtesy of Welsh Farmers, on DARLAND, as in Darling, ex Golf courses as the young today want diferent more energetic sports than Golf nowadays, fashions change, and Golf courses take up a great deal of WATER to keep the grass green which is a valuable natural resource ! YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE ! you will meet other dog walkers and young'uns from Darland School to help you out as in the song of Liverpool ! YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE ! whether a guinea pig Wheek or a 2 Legged creature !

YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE ! is a SONG of Liverpool FC by the way, BTW ! Everton is the other Premier League FC in the BIG City !
This song was written in AMERICA btw, based on an original CAROUSEL musical story in BUDAPEST HUNGARY ! so many international connections hey !
When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark
Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone
Walk on walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone
more walkies ! http://www.wrexham.gov.uk/welsh/leisure_tourism_w/leisure_activity_centres/gym.htm and Maes PANT PANT which in Welsh means Hollow, PANT as in the sound a dog makes when hot and thirsty, has exercise outside equipment for OLDIES not just Young'uns ! road to this park opposite the RED LION PUB on the main road in MARFORD...lots of LIONS and DRAGONS around here ! oh a HORRIBLE accident like in other places took place here when humans dug deep into the ground and weakened it of course to use up coal that can't last forever ...oooh you think EARTHQUAKES only happen in other countries ? think again ! Blackpool, Birmingham even Folkstone and Portsmouth have had some little ones ! could get worse if we disturb our land too much hey ! ...oh i saw a FANTASTICAL idea about putting a band around MARS to capture the sun's heat that could provide us with energy forever and ever ! i wonder if this place in Snowdonia has heard about it ? i saw it on tv...http://visit.cat.org.uk/...more things to do and see on http://www.dayoutwiththekids.co.uk/things-to-do/Marford Of course once upon a time, dogs and people and squirrels etc ran happily fast and free in such parks. Now dogs are on leads as humans like to control their lawns to be free of dandelions and daisies and stop dogs being dogs to behave like polite humans in human ways. People do not know what dogs do naturally anymore, those are myths, now humans force dogs to do things the way they want and do not trust dogs much really. Well anyway, our dogs are such human designed creatures, full of problems as humans have decided how they should look and be.
Lewis Caroll of Warrington now Cheshire, once Lancashire, wrote ALICE's Adventures in WONDERLAND ! the stone Cheshire cat is on a church there the inspiration of the term CHESHIRE CAT GRIN ! I, a Warrington born of immigrants to the uk person, was born there in a terrraced house with outside toilet in the yard. My parents cared for the mentally sick in a hospital now that no longer exists, we have put our sick into B and B's on medication to fend for themselves nowadays. They are OUTTA SIGHT that way. One day in a town in Berkshire called Reading one night in the town center i came accross a man fallen on the ground, people walking past him by thinking he was just a drunk...i and an east european friend called Radoslav helped him up and he said thank you, i forgot to take my medication today. There but for the grace of God go any of us. Who can say i am not inadequate in some way ?
Once upon a time, a long time ago,
2 Black wolf-looking Belgian Groenendael Sheepdogs, 2 Lithuanian one black one white ducks and a multi coloured long haired Guinea Pig called in French COCHON D'INDE meanng pig of India but no one really knows the origins originally of this mysterious beast ! ah maybe the hot mountains of the ANDES ! South America ! guinea pigs get colds easily and can die within only a few hours of getting one, so important to keep them dry and clean...like the UNICORN another FABULOUS beast it is a mystery ! now I add the unicorns disappeared from our planet as the legend tells us they were too busy PLAYING when Noah made the ark ship to escape the flood many many years ago ! so it is important to work hard, play hard ! not just play !
Once upon a time, a long time ago, some people had huge stone lions as their gateposts...in Dogland Pulford which was a FABULOUS place meaning imaginary and beautiful, FABULOUS comes from the word FABLE meaning a kind of FAIRY TALE ! we had a BLACK FAIRY DOG in Dogland Pulford ! her name is BLACK FAIRY because she is black of course ! but you think that I made up this name DOGLAND? no ! it exists ! Lewis Carroll ! Alice 's Adventures in WONDERLAND ! Sylvie and Bruno Chapter 13 ! A Visit to Dogland !!...and we also had GARDEN GNOMES who moved around sometimes to other gardens as gnomes do which result in this blackspot crime area in 999 calls at past the midnight hour on saturday nights to the Police who politely ask for tolerance and compassion for their focus on duties in the inner-city on lads and ladettes in mini skirts and no jackets coming out of nightclubs and the like occupying them more on a Saturday night fever than garden gnomes that have taken a walk on the wild side ! Once upon a time, a long time ago.
Pulford has its own VIGILANTES ! jaja ! like CHARLES BRONSON in the USA ! one who in league with the police keep a watchful eye out for any wild dogs off leads that might, just MIGHT do a POOP on their drive that wasn't picked up by the responsible dog owner ! eeeek ! not understanding that the NEGATIVE VIBES given out over this area are DOG DETERRANTS ! jaja ! there are DOG PEE DETERENTS Even around nowadays to spray on things ! but a NEGATIVE VIBE from NEGATIVE ATTITUDE to dogs is often all it takes !
Dogs are a bit TELEPATHIC ! they know and SMELL fear, negative vibes, all sorts ! are very keen on sniffing the private to us parts of our bodies to assertain our state of mind even !
Oh there are even GHOST STORIES locally at Rossett where all the shops are here ! oh a picture now of MY DOGS and I ! in a shop in France !
Whilst WHEEK is doing her TOILETTAGE which means cleaning herself by licking her fur and scratching it to comb it...I will add this story ! as the dogs and i just got back from a walk for lunch to the GOLDEN LION PUB HUGE GARDEN WHERE KIDS WERE PLAYING WITH FOOTBALLS AND RUGBY BALLS kicking them yes ! no signs saying not to ! now they didn't seem to be serving lunches in the garden of the Grosvenor pub where i saw signs reminding parents that they are responsible for their children ! ooo la la hey ! do parents need reminding of that ? anyway at the GOLDEN LION just down the road the staff said what calm nice dogs Black Fairy and Falcon were ! on the way there a bird flew out of a hedge straight into Falcon's face ! (Falcon is my Male dog by the way i think i forgot to mention that) he was surprised ! opened his mouth and got hold of the bird in a flash reaction to this assault on him ! then let it go ! i watched in amazement as the bird chirped and flapped around noisily unharmed by this telling all the other birds ! and i told all the other customers in the pub about it too who fussed over the Black Fairy and Falcon bigtime !
Now that is my tale for today except for ? one of the 17th Century ! the huge number of photos etc in this pub are fascinating and one story caught my attention about this ghost JEFFREY !
here is an account of on another website ! but in the story as i read in the pub it was a HORROR STORY of a dead body being left hanging for YEARS ! the birds must have pecked at that hey ! and the SMELL ! ouff ! but back to the story ! ...about how people take the law into their own hands sometimes out of frustration like vigilantes like Charles Bronson ...in this case the local council didn't take down this dead body for YEARS as it rotted ! so the local people did and destroyed even the hanging wood as it was HURTING THEIR BUSINESS ! yes yes ! well would you want to go shopping where a dead body was hanging ?
oooh, here is how long it takes for things to disintegrate...which is why it is important to get things recycled or destroyed correctly not left in nature to pollute our planet, animals, fish and birds. Dolphins choke and die on all the plastic bags in the oceans ! and fish ! All that rubbish in our rivers, roadsides, ponds...your future ! our future !
Paper Bag: 1 month
Cardboard: 2 months

Tinned Steel Can: 50 years
Aluminum Can: 200-500 years (But if recycled, it can be reused within 6 weeks!)
Disposable Diapers: 550 years

Styrofoam: 1+ million years
BACK TO THE TALES OF ROSSETT WHILE WHEEK WAS DOES her TOILETTAGE !
If a youngster in Rossett stayed outdoors too long after his bedtime it was once common to hear his mother scold: “Come inside at once – or Old Jeffrey will get you.”
Old Jeffrey was a criminal gibbeted on Rossett Green in the 17th century. He had attacked a labourer near Gresford and run away, leaving him for dead. But the man recovered and gave testimony. Jeffrey was captured and hanged at Ruthin. His body was stapled to the gibbet at Rossett and left to rot.
Its grim presence in the village seemed to put a stigma on the community and farmers would find that no-one would buy their produce at market. Eventually a group of men decided to take matters into their own hands. One night they assembled at the gibbet and, prizing apart the iron staples, took the body down and buried it on the green before breaking up the gibbett.
Wood from the device was used in an outbuilding of a local pub where Jeffrey’s ghost has been sighted on numerous occasions over the years.>> http://www.leaderlive.co.uk/news/94983/author-s-haunting-tales-and-ghostly-goings-on.aspx
Oh the GOLDEN LION does lovely vegetarian soup and rissottos ! http://www.thegoldenlionrossett.co.uk/ ah there was a GOLDEN LION in The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis ! the lion's name was ? ASLAN ! he was a goody ! So Rossett is NARNIA LAND ! he wrote The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe ! and Lewis was a close friend of J.R.R. Tolkien who wrote ? THE HOBBIT ! about little people ! Little things matter !
Back to ? THE TALES OF WHEEK ! Once upon a time, a long time ago
WHEEK is the sound a happy guinea pig makes. One can learn how to tell the difference between a HAPPY or UNHAPPY WHEEK on youtube and other internet sites of course. Very useful links to bookmark !
Once upon a time, a long time ago,
SPOT THE WHEEK in the above picture ! and ducks PREENING themselves. Animals spend a great great deal of time CLEANING themselves ! much more time than us humans do ! it is important to stay HEALTHY ! they know that instinctively, us humans need to be taught it...and it gives them a FEEL GOOD factor when clean ! they have it seems to me 2 great focuses in life...EATING and PREENING ! These Sheepdogs whilst very friendly to those they know are FEARSOME guardians of their wards the wheeks and duckies ! Animals LOVE being SOCIABLE too ! a guinea-pig needs company and if not another guinea pig is delighted to be in the company of different to her animals like ducks ! jaja ! she WHEEKS with joy when re-united with her mates !
Once upon a time, a long time ago
CLIMBING THE WALLS ! all animals like freedom...when restrained they are frustrated and try to escape. Until they learn by continual put-downs and enforced enclosures hey must resign themselves to feel sad and listless in cages we put them into. You think your pet rat or dog not going out to run free in large open spaces is ok ? think again ! you would feel upset and depressed if kept in all day every day ! in this all living creatures are the same.
Whitie quack died killed by a car or bus on the main road on her last flight of freedom and pleasure. Most ducks never get to fly and enjoy such things of course as they are bred for our dinners etc and in small cages etc and even a duck that CAN still fly, unlike say Aylesbury ducks bred by humans to be too fat to fly so that they have more meat on them for us to eat...they still instinctively want to soar up and fly around in the skies.....quack lived much longer than most ducks bred for our dinners in small cages never flying...and many birds live entire lives in cages unable to fly far as they instinctively want to. Such small cages for most animals we keep. Dogs we keep on leads, like handbags, unable to run freely in safe from cars large open fields and woods.
last flight over Pulford onto main road end of quack 2 years old she flew over the trees as she wanted to always
i watched the spectacular flight up and away and thought yes that is what they have wanted to do always but only on novasodai is it possible where they do huge circles and come back to base shortly afterwards
like most animals we have domestically they never get to do what they really enjoy most of the time if at all if a factory bred for our dinners duck of course
so she had 2 years life longer than xmas last year lunch purpose in life. i brought her back and the dogs were quiet and blackie saw she had lost her companion.
Most baby chicks live only 6 weeks, fattened fast for our dinners. Most lambs live only a few months. Whitie had several years but not the 15years a duck can live.
better not to be born of course than be frustrated all your life due to living in urban area where such flights are a certainty of death if landing on nearby busy fast moving road
I had bought her at a market, bred for fattening for dinner for humans. so she was not meant to live more than several weeks longer in reality, like most animals bred by humans.
i had wanted to put netting over entire garden to allow a bit of flights...needed help for that but never mind...seeing how she took off even this garden like any urban garden was not really enough for such an animal that flies far and wide naturally, it was life of much FRUSTRATION for her like most of our PETS restrained like that in cages, on leads, chains etc.
of course now blackie duck is alone so not as happy for her and of course no flights at all now here not without more netting over an urban garden she cannot do her normal flights around here., but i know she wants to. so a life of frustration for her still.
she was spectacular in her last flight up and away over the huge trees
sometimes i feel animals know that this is the last flight so to speak and damn it just want to feel the gound far below them and soar for a moment of pure pleasure
as she did
until a car or bus got her
such is life
she had her last flight in an urban area ...and obvious results
aylesbury type ducks bred to extremes of type like many animals are by human selections of extremes and more extremes that nature would not make the norm in natural selections, cows,, pigs, dogs, ducks for human ideas are unable to fly of course just as many breeds of dogs cannot run properly due to having been bred to have short legs and contorted bodies
but these ducks had not been bred to such extremes and could fly and did and loved it.
she was a MUSCOVY duck ! the only duck NOT descended from the MALLARD duck, that love perching in trees rather than swimming and and fly
most ducks never get even one flight as she did today
is a life for a duck with wings meant to fly worth living without flights ? i dont think so
that is what she wanted to do instinctively
just not possible in urban area here
the garden was nothing for such a flier
i have watched them do huge high up flights and big circles in novasodai a big open land area of many hectares of no busy roads just fields and woods...and it is spectacular...they used to watch the wild ducks overhead....but soaring up and away in a huge circle was what she wanted to do and did
oh well shit happens...and even if i had taken them somewhere into the countryside it was still mostly a frustrating life not doing that every day as they wanted to.
Once upon a time, a long time ago...and i have hundred of videos and pictures of the memories...of dogs, people all loose uncontrolled and happy and fully big runs exercised so happy...and like Wheek the guinea pig sometimes ..but not as often as wheek...we felt FEAR and found it was ok if we stayed calm and the fear was not real...Wheek is very fearful often...as are foxes and wolves and all kinds of animals fearful of US humans the most...
i lived in the days when my dogs were charged by powerful rotties and ovcharkas etc and did not have a fight, occasional scuffles...dogs on leads feel constrained so act more defensively unable to be free to meet other dogs and talk dog language in posturings and sniffings etc...humans interfere with such dog behaviour of course
Once upon a time, a long time ago
THIS KIND OF BEHAVIOUR above of dogs playing with a ball IS A NO NO ! there are in some places signs even against CHILDREN PLAYING WITH BALLS around here jaja ! and dogs off leads on the street ! eeek ! horror of horrors ! even if a cul de sac ! dead end road. CUL is not an English origin word by the way, it comes from the FRENCH who do not pronounce the L in it and means a part of the body the BOTTOM. SAC is French too, for Sack in English. There are LAWS about this ! so BEWARE ! and vigilantes exist everywhere to ensure this sort of fun is stopped ! Other Birds of Paradise occasionally appear in the hobbits' gardens of Dogland Court such as PEACOCKS and PHEASANTS ! eeeeeek ! CROWS ! Hitchcocks' Birds Film comes to mind ? there are many EAGLE EYES peering out in this area ! hidden video cameras maybe around to capture their activities hey ! FEED THE BIRDS ! they are fewer nowadays than ever before ! they SING and cheer us up !
the following picture is of OFF ROAD DUCKS ! eeek ! quackers ! but this is NOT against the law I add !
Once upon a time, a long time ago
Ducks do not need military training to walk in line as humans need...it comes NATURALLY to them.
ah. I must not forget the LINK to GUINEA PIG WHEEK SOUNDS INTERPRETATIONS ! http://www.guineapigmanual.com/guinea-pig-sounds/ and FYI which is sms speak FOR YOUR INFORMATION, POPCORNING means the JUMPS and twirls in the air a guineapig makes when happy ! not POPCORN eaten at the cinemas but POPCORNING a SPORTING ACTIVITY of Guinea pigs ! Sport, exercise releases substances in our bodies that make us HAPPY ! a good reason to do it ! ENDOMORPHINES they are called FYI !
TUT TUT ! i see in the guinea-pig link a picture of ANTHROMORPHOLOGY ! which means attributing human caracteristics to animals ! that is a BIG WORD hey ! but putting hats on dogs or in this case on this link reading glasses on a guinea pig is an example of making animals look like humans ! they are NOT humans ! they look silly in hats and don't understand such things of course ! and just TOLERATE our silliness for doing this to them lol ! LOL means LAUGH OUT LOUD btw BY THE WAY ...yes animals have to learn to be very very TOLERANT of us humans ! so ? we should learn from them to be more tolerant of other humans too ! animals other than humans AVOID conflicts where possible ! run off ! only if cornered, threatened or hungry do they usually attack anything ! We have much to learn from other animals for sure.
http://www.pulfordstmary.org.uk/ more about important things in PULFORD as well as Guinea pigs ! Thursday evenings is CAMPANOLOGY time ! if you thought your ghetto blaster could make loud noise think again !
