Down at Duthie Park on Saturday morning, Gail wanted me to pose in front of the flagpole. I believe the idea was to demonstrate that we had almost clear skies and NO wind. It was also a wee bit frosty.
Now generally, when Gail whisks out the camera, I have learned it's best to sit down and look hopeful. Sometimes, treats are forthcoming.
But in winter there is a problem with this approach, as I'm sure you will understand.
Who likes to get a cold bottom? Not me for sure.
So I find the optimum strategy is to squat in a 'hovering' position. A bit like (I'm told) the more fastidious type of human female does when using a public 'convenience'.
However, this is not a comfortable stance to hold for more than a few seconds…
Hi, I'm Bertie, a wire-haired fox terrier pup. I live with Gail in Aberdeen, Scotland. An old Westie called Hamish used to live here but he died on 18th February 2010 (exactly the same day I was born). People tell me that he used to have a blog and that I have big pawprints to fill. That's a bit too much responsibility for a very young puppy - and anyway, I intend to make my own mark!
(Gail says that Hamish could certainly have taught me a thing or two about marking stuff....)
