This handsome young man languishing on a flagstone in the kelp is celebrating his birthday this week. Haggis is a VERY wild variety of Cairn Terrier, as yet pretty untamed and more than a bit pesky, he suits his name. He likes a game of hide and seek with his Uncle Peedie (the older dog here) when he's out............and he's particularly hard to find in kelp strewn beaches. Could you find him?
He's right there in the middle........I've put a star around him.......
Haggis is great at hunkering down on a rock, stalking his very much loved Uncle Peedie, the older Cairn Terrier. Uncle Peedie is not a fan of the stalking and jumping out game. Not at all. Haggis on the other hand loves it.
He waits like a cat in attack mode to jump on Uncle Peedies head. Uncle Peedie doesn't like that much either.
In fact, if given the choice Uncle Peedie wouldn't play this game at all. Often he just turns his back and walks away.
Haggis, being a newly turned 'One year old' pup - doesn't mind. He just runs ahead and starts again. Bless him. He's quite a dedicated little pup, he just keeps trying. Thankfully the beaches are full of kelp - or tangles as they call them up here, so Haggis has plenty places to hide. Uncle Peedie spends much of his time walking in circles to avoid attacking Haggi's. Oh well can't please everyone can you?
Happy Birthday Haggis you're a bit bigger than when you arrived - barely bigger than an envelope!
Happy Birthday Haggis.
(Who's also known as Hagar the Horrible here)
(And The Kraken)
(And several other names that mischievous puppies often have when they constantly attack and jump all over you)
And his birthday present. I thought it only fitting to buy him some reduced packets daffodil bulbs, 'Tete a Tete' - seemed only fitting given his love of being 'Head to Head' with Uncle Peedie.......
