We hate Donald Trump!

Serious matters today folks.
We went for a walk by the sea at Balmedie earlier today. (Oh don't fuss, yes OF COURSE I've recovered from last Sunday. I wasn't really that tired you know...)

There's a wonderful beach, HUGE sand dunes, interesting little creeks with unusual wildflowers. All unspoilt, peaceful, pristine.
Gail told me that I could go exploring anywhere. So it was a bit of shock when we came across this sign:
What on earth could be going on?


Apparently some horrid man called Donald Trump has bought the land and is going to build a golf couse, a HUGE high rise hotel and about a thousand houses. He says the area will be "improved".

But how can you improve on what is already perfect?

Well I bounced right past the sign and went exploring anyway. (Don't worry, my American friends, you're not allowed to shoot trespassers here).
I promised Gail I would try out my brand new teeth if we came across this Trump character.

So, truth to tell, I was just a wee bit disappointed that he was nowhere to be seen.
PS I hope you like my new sand-in-the-beard look? It means you get that extra tingling sensation when I kiss....


  1. We don't care much for him either - and we hate that he is spoiling your beach.


  2. Bertie,
    You're getting so tall and leggy-just beautiful!

    And we don't like that Trump guy much either: "development" of pristine land means money, you know!

    Your buddy,

  3. Your Mom might remember an old Joanie Mitchell song that goes: "They take paradise and put up a parking lot!"And don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you've got 'til its gone"

    How terrible that Trump is despoiling this beautiful spot. Nothing left to do about it either, I suppose. Trump almost always gets what he wants. I'm glad you got to play here while you can and I'm sorry for what Trump is going to do.

    How could that Trump dude, do this to your nice beach, how terrible. I hope you keep those teeth nice and sharp for when you do see him. Bite him for us all too ok??


  5. Bite him for all of us, too. When are humans going to learn that there is sooooo much to life other than money!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  6. Bertie my boy. Your beach is stunning. Perfect for bouncing boys. Boy you do look good bounding around on the beach.

    That beach is sooper dooper special. But for houses? A golf course? A Hotel? Never!! Dog-a-blogging-sobbing bad news. Give me a bark when you see him. You go for the ankle's Bertie. i'll aim a bit higher.

    Wiry love Eric

  7. Bertie,Just a minute here.....GOOD FOR KISSING????WHO HAS BEEN TALKING TO YOU?? TELL ME IS MY BROTHER TELLING YOU THINGS YOU SHOULDN'T BE HEARING YET?? He of course denies this.. Listen,, we REALLY do not like this Trump guy AT ALL so we are glad you went all over his beach,,, HOW DARE he come and wreck it with all that junk Hasn't he wrecked enough stuff over here?? uh oh I feel more capital letters coming I had better stop.. WOW are your legs getting long.. Love A+A

  8. Oh no! The Combover King has hit the Scotish coast? The only thing on his mind(besides that awful hair) is $$$$. We are so sorry to hear that another piece of pristine beach is going to be ruined. We hope you at least "baptised" that sign with a little peeMail!!

  9. Hmmm - we have good exports and bad exports. Sorry about that Trump fellow.

  10. Scotland is where golf was born! Scotland has the best golf courses in the world! So what on earth does "Dump Truck" think that he can add?

    Everypup is correct, for the Combover King all he lives for is his money!!!

    Such a horrible shame to such Beautiful Pristine Paradise! Maybe Dump Truck thinks he is god?

    Regardless of all of that I think you are growing into right smart young Wire-Haired Fox Terrier!

    woo woos and hugs, Tessa

  11. Bertie - No room in your blog for a mention of Mr.Salmond? Of course you know full well that he had nothing to do with it.

  12. Oh Bertie that terrible news I’m sure we can rely on you to give him a dam hard bite if he steps one foot on that lovely beech.
    See Yea George xxx

  13. That's terrible what he wants to do to your beautiful coastal area. We don't care for Donald Trump here at all. And what's with his hair and that comb-over of his? Bottom line though, his plans for your region awful. I'm sorry he's doing that.

  14. Wooos Bertie! That evil man keeps destroying our beawootiful coasts too. It is so sad. I hope wooo find him and bite him fur me.
    I like the sand in your furs!
    Always a happy sight

  15. OMD, that man and his bad, bad hair are everywhere. Well you can count on one thing - the resort and golf course will be named after him and there will be bad taste involved - aside from the whole ill conceived project, I mean.

    I hope you get a chance to bite him.

  16. I promise to pee on Trump Tower next time Mom takes me uptown. And maybe leave a steaming pile of fresh terrier poo by his limo to let him know what this Scot's lad thinks of his golf resort!

    Your feisty Uncle Petey

  17. Bertie,
    Mom and I think Donald Trump's money would have been better spent on a more becoming hair piece... We are very sorry he is messing up that beautiful piece of land and water.
    You are growing so quickly from a darling puppy into a handsome young man.
    We're just sayin'
    Madi and Mom

  18. The rich get richer and the dogs get squashed! Sad news!

  19. hey!, that's just WRONG to do that to your beach. If we see him, we will go "grrrr" at him for you.
    your pals, Morgan & Maisie

  20. Bertie, you are looking very tall and handsome on that pretty beach.
    We are glad you ignored that sign - it was meant for humans anyway!
    We trust you enjoyed yourself - golf! Ha!
    As you say that beach is perfect - only humans can ruin perfection. And they say we dogs are dumb!!!!

  21. Improve? I agree with you, Berty.
    What a shame to have that lovely area ruined by construction of a golf course, etc. So sad.

  22. Uh oh. We just realized we have even more catching up to do than we thought. This post about this Donald Trump guy (who moma despises, as well) was back when we were visiting our blogging friends. Let's see. We were in NYC on July 30. We sorta pretended the world stopped while we were gone ... and now we see that was a bit presumptuous. Sigh. Guess we'll be reading for a long long time.

    Thanks for directing us back here ...
    Onward ho
