A Guid New Year, Tae One and All

Regular readers will be aware he came with the name of William, which was changed to Laoch (Hero) and just as promptly amended to Wii Shiite.

He was a mere collection of skin and bones, floppy lugs and attitude…oh boy, did he have attitude.

Still, Dad informed me that sticking a stamp on his heid and sending him back to Galashiels was not an option, so we jist had to get on with it.

I was put in charge of his training.

Our first real walks of the year were 2 of our favourites, being The Secret Beach, and the Cuillin foothills at Sligachan.

Dad says we had to start Laoch off on nice easy daunders.
