Welcome to my blog!

Me in my new garden ...  exploring

Me and my brothers checking out the perimeter

Me and Baby Dougal at the secret escape hatch ... shhhhh!

Hello friends old and new
I have just discovered this blogging site and I thought I could use it to update my friends on my weekly exploits.  As those of you who know me will be aware I have recently moved to the kingdom of Northumberland which has a very checkered history, what with Viking invasions and the like.  My job here is to check out the lay of the land, and to make sure that the people of Northumberland are kept safe from various maurauders and hostile elements.  I will start by ensuring the security of my own back garden ... not as straightforward as you may think!  Me and my doggie brothers, Alfie Bucket and Baby Dougal, have been patrolling the perimeters of our homestead making sure that there are no intruders.  Several felines thought they could wander unaccosted through our undergrowth - well we soon showed them who is boss!  (I have to admit that some of them were quite a substantial size - not like the delicate moggies we are used to!)  Anyway, we have made our mark here and I have lots to explain to you all about security and special operations of the Westie kind, so drop in regularly and learn a thing or two from the master!  LOL!

Love from Hamish xxx


  1. Our Mom saw our her Facebook Page that you were starting a blog page - we'll be happy to introduce you on our blog and get some of our buddies by to visit you.

  14. Hi Hamish...welcome to Blogville. We see that so many of our friends have already been here. Probably because we're in Australia and end up asleep when the new posts come out.

    Now, you make sure those cats DO NOT breach your perimeter. They are very sneaky.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

    Now, is that Alfie Bucket, or Boo-kay?

  16. Hi Hamish, We're still trying to figure out the comments! In case we need to ask advice etc. We are also a bit worried about those cats, in case they are Viking cats. They could be pretty fierce. Did they have helmets with horns? Love from Dangerous Beans and Ben.

  17. Hello and Woofs Hamish - welcome to the doggeh bloggie world - look forward to getting to know you and following your exploits!

  18. Howdy, Hamish!! Welcome!! I'm from the Lone Star State-- Texas-- across the pond, I think y'all call it. Glad to meet another Westie!!

    Backyard patrols are serious business indeed!! I have run off intrudin' cats ( I got one I deals with inside the house on a regular basis, and one that visits repeatedly, I don't need any others in my backyard!!) and squirrels and other varmints.... once I even caught and killed a rat that tried to sneak in our yard and eat some of my Momma's tomatoes...Shake, shake, and that was the end of him!!

    Good luck varmint hunting and patrollin' the yard!!

  19. Hello Hamish and Brothers. Our friends, the Rocky Creek Scotties told us you had a new blog, so we stopped by to introduce ourselves. We're 8 Portuguese Water Dogs and two mixed rescues. We're always happy to meet new friends.
