Summer quarter...

Hello everyone. Just checking in to let you know how my summer is going.  In April we did go up to Scotland to see the people with the Doberman dogs, Mia and Duke. I got on mostly fine, but I did get told off a few times for being a bit cheeky and trying to boss Duke and be over friendly with Mia. Mum says I need to learn my place.... they live there and I was the visiting pup!

May was a busy time in the garden and I helped where I could. Yes the fence did arrive and I can not get into the veg plots any more! Here I am sitting on the other side of the fence to the plants!

June, equally busy in the garden and at the end of the month we had a trip to Drewsteignton, Devon and I got to stay in a bunkhouse and go in a pub. We were with mum and dads friends so 10 humans and one dog.... which equals lots of fuss for me of course.  That was a lovely weekend. Note how I was carefully carried over stiles, even when muddy!

July has been different as mum has stopped working for a while, so I have much more company, which is lovely.  We have started visiting mums parents in Cornwall a lot more regularly too; which means more beach runs. There are more trips in the car too, which I don't mind. The below picture is me after a big run on Gwithian beach.
With mum home a bit more, we also had her best friend and godson around for lunch one sunny day. They have a lovely doggie called Pip. I fell in love... We had a lovely walk together along and in the River Rea.
August means holiday time! We went back up to Scotland again with mum and dad's friends Jackie and Brian, to see Nicky and Tony and my friends Mia and Duke.  And yes, I did get told off a few times again for being a cheeky pup!  Here I am at the bbq tea one evening. I didn't get anything, but it was fun being closer to the food cooking.
After the first week, we said goodbye to our friends and the five of us: Jackie, Brian, me, mum and dad, went further north to Portgower on the NE coast of the Highlands of Scotland.  Basically I had a fantastic time. below is a selection of photos showing things I got up to:
 Surfing on the beach at Brora.
 Playing in the waves, again at Brora.
 Grrr, this stick is stuck!
 looking out to sea at the 'sea dogs' (seals).
 Bringing a stick back from the river.
A stick as big as the path, woodlands further inland.
I hope you have enjoyed catching up with me. 
Little extra info - but no picture you'll be pleased to know - mum found a Tick in my coat last night and dad had to pull it out! Yuk!
Who knows what adventures will happen in the next 3-4 months.  see you soon, lots of love x.
