It's fun to be a Foxy!

So we had a little meet and greet in the Muir of Dinnet car park on Sunday morning, ahead of the monthly wire-haired fox terrier walk. It was a small but select group this time. Quality rather than quantity, if you like. 

Stan, Merin, Pickles and I were joined by Stan's houseguest Toby, who is not a WFT, but we didn't hold that against him.

Introductions complete, we set off down the path through the birch trees to Loch Kinord. For the first time this year, I felt snow under my paws.

The sun shone brightly. The snow had melted and the wind had freshened by the time we completed our circumnavigation of the Loch.

We were all "good dogs" throughout, although perhaps Merin could use some extra training in the matter of posing for the end of walk team photo.

Gosh it was fun. I bet Dobermann Toby is wishing he was a Foxy!


  1. oooh we would love such an event... the whft's have still a BIG place in our heart and to see them is always like a little gift!

  2. Good friends, decent weather...wonderful scenery. A wonderful adventure. Although, we noticed you didn't mention stopping by a pub.

  3. You lucky boy, Bertie! What fun you have on those walks - and with such nice company - even if they weren't all WFT's! Poor Toby couldn't help it that he was a Doberman, just his bad luck in the lottery of doggy life!

  4. What a beautiful day you had for a SuperFun adventure, Bertie! Love the team photo!

  5. Bertie I'm so happy to see my special delivery of a wee bit of snow arrived!! BOL
    You and Gail have the most gorgeous places on the planet for walkies with your furiends.
    For sure Toby is thinking I'm in a 'foxy' hole.
    Wish Gail a most speedy and good last week of work. I know she must be quite excited.
