I remember when I was a pup........................!

Och! Eye the Noo!

It's us again!

McDaisy, MacHolly, Miss McMay, Miss McApril, Miss McWendy and Freddy de McFerret again!

Now first things first, Archie Babe, being a bit Tom & Dick is a doggy thing, we all do it from time to time! I was once told by an old Labrador Woofer that being a dog means that you eat everything that you can get in your mouth and if it upsets you later on...........throw it up!

Mind you, if the reason is that the vet has stuffed something down your throat then you are allowed to throw up all over him!

As I told you yesterday, we all set off for a place called Kishorn where The  Missus has pointed to many a lobster resting in a tank of water and said 'That One!'

Well, today was going to be a good day for lobsters 'cos when we got there and Old Two Legs and TM walked up to the counter and asked for a lobster each, they were told they didn't have any!


Lobsters 1 TM&OTL 0!

Mind you, to compensate, TM had a big plate full of Langoustine, so it was......

TM 1 Langoustine 0!

OTL had a plate of 'hand dived' Scallops in Garlic!

Holly and I had to stay in the car and wait until these two Guzzle Guts had finish depleting the ocean of wild life!

After that we headed off to Applecross where I showed Holly the beach I had been on when I was just a year old puppy!
It's just as big as it was then!

When I was there it was boiling hot and sunny and the tide was out and I was running all over the place!

Today it was Wet and Rainy but the tide was out and Holly and I dashed all over the place. I even found a big dead starfish that Holly and I had a good roll in!

This really honks!
 Getting onto the beach was fun and what was even funnier was watching Holly instruct TM on how to jump a stream!

Waggle your tail 'cos it helps!
I went all the way down to the waters edge and had a paddle but Holly decided to keep to the sand, that was until she found herself surrounded by a stream so in the end she had to go paddling!

Come on, just a little paddle!
Of course, OTL just had to take a shot 'for the records'!

I just don't do water!
OTL decided that he wanted a wee, so off he goes to a big rock and Holly and I stood guard while he did the wee. Well, why not? He stands guard while we have a wee or a poo!

TM had hold of the camera so as OTL got up close she rattled off a couple of shots!

OTL, fresh from a wee!
 We headed back to the caravan and took the road over the mountain, well it was high enough to have the clouds from the sky and the rain that was trapped in the cloud!

OTL said it was called 'The Pass of the Cattle' and the highest road in the UK!

That was all very interesting but I must admit, I was glad when we dropped out of the clouds and back to sea level!

Coming down from the Pass of Cattle.
 Back at the caravan OTL took the ferrets out for a run about and came across this butterfly. From memory, OTL reckons it is called a 'Green Vein' butterfly.

Dunno why!

'ere mate, wot's your name?
 We had chicken this evening so now we are looking forward to a snooze before bedtime!

TM says we are heading into Fort William tomorrow to do some shopping and Holly says that there might be a Doggy Shop there for us to get some treats 'cos we have nearly finished all the treats we brought away with us from home!

See you tomorrow.

Keep yer tail up Archie Babe!


McDaisy, MacHolly, Miss McMay, Miss McApril, Miss McWendy and Freddy de McFerret.


  1. Morning McGodwins, sorry I didn't get to post last night but we went to bed early. Sounds like you woofers had a super day, sorry the TL's didn't get their lobsters but perhaps the lobsters have gone on holiday seeing as the heard you lot were coming. Now you had me worried when you said that TM had the camera and took some shots while OTL was having a wee, I thought perhaps ............. well nuff said. Holly doesn't look impressed with that stream. Lovely pictures again. Glad to hear you got some decent scoff after waiting for Mrs TM and OTL to finish their fish food. I went back to the vets again, I keep burping now, so the vet thinks I've got acid reflux, so another medicine ........ this one is really yukky but I spread it all round the kitchen. Had my mum up at 10 to one this morning for a walk round the garden, she was half asleep and she has to be up early for work, that should ensure a good days snooze when she gets back home from work. I liked the little butterfly chap. I bet them McFerrets are having a lovely time up there but didn't they get to roll in any stinky sniffs on the beach? Enjoy your sniffs today and I'll be looking forward to your adventures. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxx

  2. I thought the same as Archie and you did say that TM rattled a couple of shots off and we only see one, tut, tut ha ha! Beautiful pictures and love your story of the day, wonderful. xxxxxx
