Time to check Horatio's leg lifting progress

Once again, I'm bursting with excitement.

Guess who came to see us last week?

Horatio's 'mum', Mandy, that's who!  And she brought me this super smart bandana, all the way from Scotland's capital.
Those are Mandy's legs in the background

I was a bit disappointed at first that my wiry pal Horatio wasn't with her. After all, I could have given him a master class in how to resist having a bandana tied around one's neck. On top of a refresher leg lifting tutorial of course. Apparently he sometimes gets confused and lifts his front leg...

But anyway, I cheered up hugely on learning that I'll be meeting with Horatio and all his family next Sunday. They are going to be staying by Loch Muick for a week. I've been poring over the map and trying to decide on a good route for a walk.

Loch Muick is on the Queen's Balmoral Estate.

WFTs versus Corgis, anyone?

Oh I just can't wait!

  1. We are looking forward to the trip too! My trip with the Germans went really well. They loved Aberdeen. Think the highlight was croquet on the lawn at Crathes with local croquet club- retired chaps in worn cricket jumpers, smoking pipes! Brilliant!!! See you next Sunday. Oh and good luck today to you both

  2. You could bounce rings around the corgis. We noticed the river/stream/creek on the map. Just don't end up near it, for the clean-up dunk!

  14. Bertie,

    We have no doubt that you can 'out run', 'out pee' and 'out do' all the other doggies, in every way!

  15. Bertie, that is a good color on you and of course you wear it very well my pal. I hope you find the best route and perhaps see some sites along the way. There might be some very nice sticks to play with on your trail and even a bunny or two. Good luck to you.

    That Bandanna makes you look 'Oh, so posh!'
