Baby Harry - coming home!

Harry at 4 months

Harry and Lorraine

After weeks of torrential rain and wet weather we decided to go for a walk on the beach so that Harry could release some energy! We had a great time although he still continues to run away when left off the leash (seems he is totally oblivious to calls of his name!) and at the end we have had more of an exercise session than him.

He is always so curious about anything on the sand, from sticks to plastic bottles and even birds. Here he was totally mesmerized by passers by - grabbing the opportunity to sit with him and rest for a few minutes.

Merry Harry

Harry's merry disposition and good nature quickly grabbed the love and attention of all. Harry is keen to please and loves to be around the family. His inquisitiveness drives the better of him and it is often that he scoots across the wooden floors with socks, shoes or similar firmly gripped in his his jaw as if to say "catch me if you can"!

However, show him a treat and the world is your oyster/treat! Throughout the months he has grown to develop a loving and trusting friendship always eagerly awaiting a reward of some sort to please. Harry enjoys long walks on the beach (where he runs like he's running away from himself!) and hiking up the hills where the smells of wildlife and fresh air flow freely. He has learnt many tricks and I continue to teach him new ones to keep his zest and energy focused on positive attitude and stimulation.

Life has become a lot of fun since this little fella joined us!
