Saying Hurro


Hurro! I’m Arran, also known as Scamp and I get to do the first post on our new blog to tell you all about our home and the things that are important to us.

So, this is my food bowl. It gets put down over here near my day time bed. I like to do three spins before I get to it when it is put down.


Of course, it is better when it has food in it, but that doesn’t happen very often, only twice a day! I eat raw meat, but I am happy to have most any kind of food. People food is also welcome!

Even though I like food a lot, my bowl has to go in its proper place, otherwise I can not eat from it. When my bro-fur Ludo went to his forever sleep my mum lady tried to move my bowl into Ludo’s spot.

That is not right! Things have to go where they go. Like my harness, it has to hang up in the porch, not on the side somewhere. Not right!

Oh, I am being told I am going off topic. What else is important?

We like going for nice walkies, to the beach, or a woodland, or lake, or even just around a town. All of the Outside is pretty interesting.

Walking is fun!

We do agility and training with Mum and that is important because we get treats.

I have lived in my home since I was 9 weeks old and before that I lived with my fur-mum and my fur-sisters. I have a kennel club name too and that is Elanmore Beach Boy. I use it when I do agility. You can read more about my dog family from a post on my old blog here.

This year, (or, Mum says last year now, but human time isn’t really important to me) a new thing happened in our house and it made things really quite different because it is often more noisy and we have to wait for everyone to get ready when we go out for walks. It also means we have Mum home with us instead of going out to work, which is good. But also not good because now I don’t get my going out to work treat anymore. Boy, I loved that one, because it happened at the same time every day.


We got a human baby called Squiggly. He is really interesting, especially when he first arrived home with Mum and our Dad, who is called TNP, he was named by my bro-fur Ludo and it meant The new/nice person) TNP carried him in and he smelled soo interesting. Like all new stuff but familiar too. We both wanted to play with him but to be honest he is pretty useless in that regard. He is a bit bigger now but when he was this small we had to be super careful not to tread on him cos Our pawrents didn’t like that.

See how I am being a super good boy and leaning away to be extra sure I don’t step on him?

My other super important thing is barking. I like to bark to warn about intruders, or to play, or just cos I feel like it. We get a whole lot of intruders. Sometimes it’s a blackbird in the garden stealing stuff, sometimes it’s some person walking past. But I’m always there, ready to guard!

I hope you’ll come along and join us on our adventures on this blog.

With lots of woofs,

  2. How exciting to see you here today with a new blog!!! We still miss Angel Ludo so much, but we know he lives on in your hearts. We have had some losses too and some new additions. Welcome to your new baby brother – that is just so wonderful for your Mum and TNP. Can we call him Dad now?:)

    Looking forward to lots more fun from you.

  3. Hooray – mum told us you have a new blog. We miss Ludo but its good to hear how you are enjoying life with a new squiggly. Dinner bowls are very important but we are not so bothered where leads go. River: guarding is a very important part of a shelties job but mum makes fun of me and says I think the whole street is mine (it is!) We look forward to your new adventures & wonder what Arthur will have to say. Merlin & River


  4. It won’t be long before Squiggly will be dropping treats your way! I used to do spins before my meals too but now that we live in an apartment on 2nd floor, mom decided it might not be such a great idea☺


  5. Stella was a sweet part of the Ludo Gang and I miss her like you miss Ludo! Ludo, was full of mischief and Stella would often put him in his place with a few words! Looking forward to your exciting adventures with Squiggly and a future of lots of fun.

    Jo, the late Stella’s Mum
