Harris the Munro Bagger

In my last post I threw down the gauntlet to Harris, to do something bloggable.  As I have mentioned before Harris doesn't covet the limelight in quite the same way as another dog I know.  We have just returned from holiday in Royal Deeside no less where we were staying by the beautiful Loch Muick on the Balmoral Estate.  Harris and Horatio took to it like ducks to water, and yes, I am pleased to announce that Harris came up trumps with a newsworthy achievement.  He bagged his first Munro* (Lochnagar).  When given the option to come too, Horatio indicated a strong preference to hanging out at the Hut (aka, the holiday house), where second breakfast was being enjoyed.

The rest of the holiday was not without incident.  The boys met the corgis.  And I mean the Corgis.  Unfortunately everyone else was so dumbfounded by the chance meeting, they forgot to collect photographic evidence.  I was bitterly disappointed to have missed out such an attention from the Royal Household.  

Of course the most exciting rendez vous of the trip was with Bouncing Bertie himself and his loyal companion Gail!  In spite of some negative comments from Bertie re Horatio's increasing girth, much  fun was had by all including us humans.  Again photos were hard come by..

* Munros are Scottish mountains over 3000 feet, of which there are 282.  Those aiming to summit all 282 are fondly referred to as Munro Baggers.

Harris Pressure

I stand accused of not including Harris in this blog. Poor Harris. He is just the sweetest most innocent Viszla in the world. Unquestioning devotion and love of me, food and going for a walk. He doesn't give attitude. Happy go lucky, he's fine with going with the flow as long as he is with you. The question is, how bloggable is this? Horatio is forever giving attitude and talking back. I have challenged Harris to do something of significance... 
No pressure Harris.
