A few things today.
First I want to show you what well behaved pups us wire-haired fox terriers can be.
I'm not saying always are, just can be, mind.
So in this wee movie you will see how I come back when called, even when out on a forest walk in Glen Tanar where there are lots of exciting smells. Then I pose patiently in a scenic spot by the Water of Tanar, before, further down river, again demonstrating my obedient recall. Finally I show that I am quite capable of playing nicely in Duthie Park with irritating little dogs, despite it being first thing in the morning (as you might guess from the low light levels and blurry pictures in this bit).
Sit back and enjoy!
Secondly, I want to tell you about a big storm that hit Aberdeen this week.
Some of you will have already seen this video, which was on the BBC, but if not, it's worth watching to the end so see what some poor spaniel had to put up with on his morning walk.
I am relieved to report that our Mini narrowly escaped damage from fallen branches in our neighbourhood.
Finally, Gail and I want to say how sad we are that this week our dog blogging community lost one of its finest and most distinctive characters. I don't think we ever once saw a post by our friend Mango (the Relentlessly Huge) that did not make us smile - if not collapse on the floor in hysterics - and brighten our day. Thank you so much Mango and your wonderful Momma for all the fun and memories.
We Went Camping! Sort of
