Louisdog Goes to Scotland

Louisdog Goes to Scotland

My next Pawlympics event is Ear Flapping, which will be on August 10th. That gives me a couple of days to practice Munro Bagging, which will be on  August 16th. Since Munro bagging is all about climbing the mountains of Scotland, it seemed like a good idea to fly over to Europe and practice there.

I was able to get a quick flight from Vancouver, and here I am this morning in Bonnie Scotland! Pawsome!

The air here is fresh and cool. So far, I  have found that the dogs are the same as the ones in Vancouver. I thought they would all be like Sweet William the Scot or Bouncing Bertie, but really, they are all different, just like the dogs in Vancouver.



I thought that Scottish dogs would mostly look like this one!
As soon as my plane landed I took a taxi from the airport to the mountains. In my luggage I brought a pup tent so I don't have to worry about finding a dog friendly hotel. I'll sleep in the countryside. The taxi dropped me off at a good climbing spot and I started walking. The first human I came across was this guy:

Aroo! Aroo!
Dogs don't like the bagpipes much but Mimi does. She says she like them because she has so many Scottish ancestors. She thinks it's genetic.

I have a lot of French and Maltese ancestors because my dad was a Maltese Terrier and my mom was a French Poodle. They didn't know about bagpipes.

Anypaw, here I am in Scotland and even though I am small I am brave to be here widout my pack. Maybe I will call myself Braveheart Louis!

Sending my woofy rruff to Mimi, Hazuzu my kitty, Eric and all my Blogville furriends.  I gotta go now and practice my munro bagging!

From Scotland,
Braveheart Louis Dog Armstrong

    1. Hopefully the midges won't get into my pup tent! Vancouver has mosquitoes but the Scotty Dog Guidebook I bought at the airport warns that the midges are big and bad!
