Hamish

I have shared Hamish in other posts. This was taken last Friday when I was with my British friends. Hamish is very dear to my heart. You would think he would get tired of me following him around, but he puts up with me with never-ending patience, and a few ear scratches and tummy rubs along the way. Kathy is his Mommy and the cat outside of the door is a stray she feeds every day. Actually, Kathy feeds several strays in the neighborhood. There were at least three other cats just around the corner waiting to be fed, and Hamish doesn't seem to mind them as he quietly sits on the other side of the door.

By the way, YouTube has a very good coverage of the Royal Wedding and if you want to look at it again you can if you click here. I started watching again yesterday but it is too long to see in one sitting and I had to stop as it was getting very late. I will go back to it sometime today, and probably take a note of the timer if I stop before the end.

I used to own a dog in New York, but just have an outdoor cat now in Hawaii. I wish I had more time/energy to walk a dog twice a day, but don't. Hamish is cute, though.

We had a Hamish-he was a Westie very similar, though it looks like your Hamish is a cairn terrier ? they are full of character and such lovely little dogs !

Hamish is quite the dog. He has a very expressive face.

You know I was one of those who said bah humbug to the wedding. But I saw the bride and was really taken by her. She is just perfect, and then I saw some footage of the Princess Di's funeral and her sons.

So, anyway, I'll be another commoner cheering the new bride and groom on.

Oh my gosh Denise, Hamish is adorable. I would follow him around too. I have a lovely little terrier mix that is so cute but he is from the "don't take my photo" tribe that fears the camera will steal his soul. It is so hard to get a good photo. Wasn't the royal wedding wonderful. Just what the world needed, a happy ending.

He's a cutie. I'm a dog person, so he has my vote!

I love the way Hamish has turned his head to look at you. As if to say "Oh no, not you again!" He looks like a Cairn terrier.

Hi Denise!
Hamish is super cute and Kathy is superhero for feeding strays!

I updated reading your posts up to your trip and finding the bear. I truly enjoyed reading your stories and had a treat with your photographs!

Have a great week!

What a sweet picture!

So cute. :) I'm glad you were able to get together with Friends and watchon Friday. I was up before dawn as well, not to miss a minute. My cat could not figure out why I was up before dawn, but not going anywhere but the kitchen for tea. Good times!

I think your right about what Hamish is thinking. He is cute and I'm sure he loves his Mommy as much as she loves him.

Dear Denise,

It's been quite a long time since I visited your blog. Happy to be here once again.

Lovely of Hamish to be so loyal and devoted. Sometimes, pets are better than some humans. I have a soft spot for animals.

Hamish looks gorgeous!

The Royal Wedding was fantastic! I keep viewing them at Yahoo Newspage.

The baby turned one year old a month ago. She can walk now and blubber her own language. Very good one to mind. She keeps me busy now and then.

What a sweet little dog, Denise. It's nice that Hamish doesn't mind his Mommy being nice to the kitties.

Awww...cute picture with perfect script.
I got to see the two "kisses" live and watched the reruns on the Wedding. Kate was so lovely. Sure hope they are happy.

Janie said...

I love the expression on Hamish's little face.

Roy said...

Lovely dog, wonder what he thinks about the cat. Yes the Royal Wedding was amazing Denise, we recorded about 4 hours of coverage to watch again.
