My April

+ with Harris +

Hello πŸ‘‹πŸ» Harris here. Welcome to a few (okay, more than a few) photos from my April.

April isn't exactly warm in Scotland, but it's a whole lot brighter than the previous six months. That means longer weekend walks. Evening walks. Beach walks. Exploring. Fun, basically. Here I am exploring the ancient ruins of St Andrews Cathedral.

Beach walking at Musselburgh.

Posing on some sand dunes with my Uncle Bracken. As you do...

Before you ask, yes, Scotland's east Coast is windy. #hangontoyourears

Of course, as you'll know if you read my monthly stories, there are always gates to pose at, and #doortraits to be endured, and πŸ‘©πŸ» seems incapable of passing a bench without plonking me on it. #motherproblems

#doortraits have become second nature. Here I am at Newhailes House in Musselburgh.

A random door (that πŸ‘©πŸ» likes).

There's even a tiny #bridgetrait πŸ‘©πŸ» apologizes for this cheesy photo. πŸ‘¨πŸ» insisted on posing here so this one's for you Dad. That's the 18th ⛳️ at the Old Course at St Andrews behind us.

Ask any young gent and they'll tell you that it takes work to look good. You need to stay in shape (running up sand dunes is my workout of choice) and there's fur to be groomed and whiskers to be trimmed. Beard maintenance is a serious job...

That's better.

April was also pretty special as the good peeps at Ruby & Duke (rubyandduke.com) asked me to be a brand ambassador, which means I get to sample a monthly #DukeBox filled with organic nibbles, handmade biscuits and fair trade toys. Including things that squeak and drive the Parents nuts. Even better, my pal Fonz @Fonz_ , who is General of the #SausageArmy, was made a brand ambassador too. πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

This brand ambassador stuff is exhausting work...

There was popcorn in this month's box. Seasoned with seaweed. 🍴

I'm gonna let you guess what the squeaky thing is in this photo...

April was also a serious month. WagAware (@WagAware) launched a fundraiser to raise money for Dachshund Rescue South Florida (@DRSFdoxies). Mum and I hadn't heard about DRSF until this fundraiser. If you head over to their Instagram page you'll find that they do the most phenomenal work. instagram.com/drsfdoxies

50% of the profits of every WagAware charm sold is donated to rescue dogs.

On 22 April dachshunds across Instagram wore green in remembrance of their fellow dachshunds who had recently passed ORTB. Wear Green Day was organised by Scrappy @scrappythedoxie in remembrance of... Dexter, Ollie, Sukie, Penny, Peanut, Guinness, Simon and Ceedee

I wore a beautiful jade mala that was given to me by my Auntie Victoria. This mala symbolises the heart chakra and love.

    @marij56 Auntie, I really need to have my own account. I don't like commenting using πŸ‘©πŸ»'s avatar 😏 Anyway, thank you πŸ™πŸ» and thank you for sharing. I loved the green mala. Mum is wearing is now as I type so, as my Auntie Victoria said, it's still mine. πŸ’š

    Thanks for sharing this story @thirteen ✌🏻️

  • DachshundOtto

    Love the bridgetrait palπŸ‘Š April is a fab month. Lighter evenings, warmth in the sunshine, plants growing and flowering. You do need to sort out your own account, rather than hogging your Mum's... Tho it could be a joint Harris and Uncle Bracken account...

  • ginabug77

    Absolutely adorable! Thank you for sharing! 😊

  • copperline

    @DachshundOtto Mum's resisting 😏 She says that I already take over her phone with IG and Twitter as she leaves my accounts open so that I can send messages and ends up not looking/checking on hers. "This ain't happening on Steller," she says. "We need to learn to share stuff." Right... πŸ‘‰πŸ»πŸ˜‘

  • copperline

    @ginabug77 I'm glad you enjoyed it! ☺️✌🏻️

  • rg117

    Harris, you bring sunlight into every adventure you share with us. Keep all your antics coming our way...you are such a proper pooch. Love you in Lincoln!!!

  • copperline

    @rg117 Harris here πŸ‘‹πŸ» Thank you! There will definitely be more of this coming your way πŸ˜€

  • copperline

    @justg Thank you for all the shares! 😘

  • justg

    You're welcome, I didn't really have the hang of steller at first and I'm only just learning to add things to my own collections after I saw other people added mine. I guess it's like all apps, takes a bit of navigating before you get the hang of it! 😘

  • copperline

    Exactly. I didn't add anything for ages as I felt a bit self conscious doing it, and then I realised how cool it felt when someone shared mine and I jumped on in! 😘

  • copperline

    Thank you for sharing this one @Steller πŸ‘‹πŸ»
