Nocturne has set sail… without me!

Furiends you might have been wondering where I am and what I’ve been up to…

To be honest I’ve been sulking!

You see for the past few weeks there’s been lots of heated discussions between myself and the humans about Noccy’s next trip! The humans decided that since we’re not living aboard currently, it would be fun to sail her to somewhere new so that we can explore when we manage to spend time with her. I think it’s better to keep her in the same country as us so I can go for naps anytime I like (they said this isn’t practical with a seven hour drive between Milan and Rome).

The humans won the debate. So naturally I was then really excited about sailing from Rome to Noccy’s new temporary port in Menorca. UNTIL the blooming humans told me that dad would be doing the trip with his Uncle Maurice and our furiend Jose and that I would be staying at home with mum… dog-sitting! I’m really not amused! Mum has been busy with her dissertation and a new job and she decided it would be better to stay ashore so she could get some work done and dad could enjoy a guy trip. I think they’re forgetting… I’M A GUY!!!

But apparently, as the Admiral and the boss of the house when dad is gone, I needed to stay on land as well to make sure the rest of the crew stays in ship shape until dad comes back in a few weeks!

I’m pleased to report that my beloved Noccy is making steady progress and we’re tracking their position every two hours. This was our latest update. They left last night so they are doing well.

I will keep you updated on their progress. I apologise for all of the shouting but I’m not quite ‘over it’ yet!

I hope you’re all having a pawesome week!

Bisous, Bailey


  1. Wow Bailey, this is just so awful! You SHOULD be aboard Noccy! You’ll have to have a serious chat with dad when he returns. You do look so sulky in that photo.


  2. It does seem unfair that you were left out of the trip for guys, but I can see that you might be needed to supervise activities ashore!


  3. Poor Bailey!


  4. The nerve to leave you at home on a guy trip! We know your mum appreciates your help to keep the dogs out of trouble, though.

    Aawwww…….Bailey, that is quite a sulky look in your photo!! Sorry to hear you were left behind. But there is so much important work for you to do….keeping April and Blue in-line, and keeping mum company while dad is gone. Mum would be so lonely without her Bailey!!
    Fair winds to dad and his crew…….dad is counting on you to “be in charge” at home!!
    XOXO Nikkei and his mum, Donna


  6. I know how much you love Noccy! Always change!
    I am sorry!
    You will always be the captain, even if you are not on her!
    Monty,s mom!x


  7. We cannot even imagine Noccy at sea without you, dearest brofur. But as you are the man of the house when your dad is away, we guess it makes sense. Your mum would get too lonely without you. We wish Dad James and his friends safe sailing. XOCK from your brofurs and sisfurs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy


  8. That is simply unacceptable. Fancy offering feeble excuses like dissertations and new jobs! Has she no sense of responsibility or setting priorities? A really good and enduring sulk is called for.


  9. Oh Sweetheart! I’m so sorry that they didn’t include you in the guys trip on Noccy! But if I was your mom…I’d want you you home to protect us all while dad is away. You look so put out in the photo. Don’t pout too long…it doesn’t become you, Precious! Thank mom for allowing your fans to follow dads progress. Love you to the moon and back!


  10. Diane sargent says:

    Bailey…you are right. I would sulk too…..


  11. Bailey when dad gets back, insist that you go next time so your sea legs will stay fit


  12. I don’t blame you for being upset, B. Going along on a guy trip would have been a blast. But you’re right, you need to be in charge at home on land. Next time, buddy.

    Love and licks,


  13. 15andmeowing says:

    Sorry Bailey.


  14. That’s a bummer you had to stay home, Bailey! At least you have your human and canine family members to supervise.


  15. that is pawful….how can they leave you behind?xx Speedy


  16. Poor Bailey but you DO have an impawtant job taking care of Mom and the pups…..I know you wish you were with the GUYS but soon I’m sure you will have a FAMILY trip and be included in the action!

    Hugs, Teddy


  17. I think you should have gone with the rest of the men. Maybe they will reward you with a special trip of your own after this one. I know when I get shut out of a trip I pout until my human takes me to lunch by myself with her.

    Hi Bailey,

    I love getting your updates. You are so much fun for me to follow. You do live a very exciting life, your world is so full of adventure.

    Your mum has the best writing skills, she makes your adventures so interesting. So glad that Noccy is doing what she does best, SAILING. Look forward to hear more of your adventures.
