All Aboard: Camel Train

They are called the ships of the desert, and I often wonder how many ‘passengers’ are sea sick. I understand they stink and spit, camels, not passengers, though no doubt a few of those do too.
Would I want to ride one?
No, I don’t think so.
Would I want to have one for a pet?
No on that call too. I can clear up after a dog, but somehow camel poo would be a different kettle of fish……….. now we’re back to the sea again.
But it’s a camel train………….. and the noise they make isn’t exactly choo-choo is it.
Mind you, they always seem to be chewing something!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
