A highland fling

our wee adventure on the Black Isle



Puppies are great, aren’t they? So cute and cuddly, so full of life.

Freddy loves his dad and big brother!

Freddy loves his dad and big brother!

We have a puppy, as you know – Freddy is now 6 months old, and oh my goodness, he is a lively soul!

I feel for him sometimes. He so adores his big brother Milo, and wants to play with him and be with him all the time. This can get a bit much for our 8-year-old senior citizen. Milo likes to start his day slowly, and work up to a play as the day goes on, but not Freddy – who is “on” as soon as he’s awake!

So Freddy gets told off a lot! He seems to take it in his stride, and Milo plays enough to wear Freddy out most days. He is really good at finding games of his own, too – and really good at cajoling either Milo or Kenton into playing some fun, new game!

So after several months, I can report that Freddy has been very good for us all. He has reduced the grief we felt post-Fitz, and certainly given Milo a new lease on life.

And Freddy has the best life of any puppy anywhere, I think – a family who loves him, a big brother to teach him the rules of life, and 22 acres of Casa Tyr as a playground!

  1. Hi Ann and Kenton
    I love to hear the doggy reports Freddy looks a bit of a handful.
    hope to catch up with you guys on the flesh so to speak, we are coming to Spain 23rd Sept until 22 Oct and staying in Lauro hope you are both around. I will also like to order some soap but will contact you later.

    • hi Jas, thanks for posting! Yes, he is definitely a handful, but all boxer dogs are! Will be great to see you when you’re here – we are around most of that time, but not all, so let’s get together!
