Doc advised daily walks to stem further physical decomposition. But walking without canine company is boring. So, a couple of months back, I lashed out on a Westie pup. Thought of calling the impish bundle of mischief Rabies. Or maybe Pavlov. But opted for a rather boring Hamish instead. I'd forgotten the negative aspects of puppy ownership, such as puddles and poo indoors. And chewed furniture, clothes, bedclothes, door frames and various other items. Anyway, touch wood, we seem to be over the worst bit now. However, he's taken to rolling in cow and deer poo. Smelly! So he gets hosed down in the shower. Seems to think it's a fun game. Ah well, c'est la vie.


  1. He's a fine looking dog. The poo/pee bit usually gets sorted quite quickly. I had a Aunt who had a series of Westies (mostly rescue I imagine), and she named each one Rover. I suppose she just couldn't be bothered to find a new name for them.

  2. I am so glad you have a new puppy, and he looks so cute too!

  3. Remember that old adage: "A tired puppy is a good puppy." Best of luck with your little guy.

  4. So happy for you that Hamish has joined the household...great company.
    Seems as if he's settled in quite well already....he'll take the wintry blues away for sure.
    Good to see you again.
