Horatio Nelson







After 15 years of wanting a wire haired fox terrier, dreaming of owning one, buying joe-dog ornaments and postcards, I finally have the REAL McCoy. Horatio Nelson arrived with us Friday 22 April 2011.

Oh wow. A mini-me! So looking forward to seeing more photos and reading about your adventures. (I am now over 14 months old and climbed my first Munro - Beinn Alligin - on Sunday and am feeling very proud of myself. When I was your age I found the steps to the front door frighteneing).
Toodle pip!
Bertie.

Oh wow! Look! So many lovely comments about Horatio! He's is particularly chuffed to hear from Bertie. Horatio is very jealous of your Torridon adventures.

Just a word from Bertie's owner.
You hope that Horatio (great name by the way) will be adventurous like Bertie. Be careful what you wish for! Bertie was 'adventurous' to the point of utter recklessness for the first few months of his life and I was constantly having to save him from himself. Fortunately he slowly learned some common sense and to my great relief did not attempt to launch himself off any precipices on Beinn Alligin at the weekend.
Have fun!
Cheers,
Gail.

Will watch out for the adventurous streak, thanks for the heads up. Horatio has already tried to escape through a baby gate, getting stuck in the process....
Delighted to make the acquaintance of other terriers across the world!! If Horatio would stop chewing, biting, sleeping and eating, I'm sure he's be excited too. No, he's not related to Bertie, other than being a WFT. H comes from a breeder in Cumbria, England. We are teaching him Scottish ways. My boyfriend already has a tweed jacket for him... he'll need to grow a bit first though.
