September may have meant shorter days and less evening walks, but, like August, it was a month of adventures. My humans are trying to squeeze in as many adventures as they can before winter kicks in, and I am a curious fellow, so there is nothing better than heading off on a trip. September included visits to Hailes and Lauriston Castles and Hopetoun House, and there were beach and woodland walks to Tyninghame and Tentsmuir. So many sniffs.

sometimes Instagram friends challenge me to quirky #traits

I bring you a #tyretrait

some are very grand indeed

I was also surprised this month when two amazing artists, Tabitha of @tabbyrabbit and Zara M. of @opulentmutts, sketched drawings of me from photos on Instagram. Go check out their IG galleries - they do amazing work.


Zara M. is sketching dogs to help raise money for dog rescue organisations. Check out the Dog Rescue Gallery on Opulent Mutts. You can buy the following print as an A4 art print or greeting cards and 15% of all sales profit is donated to dog rescue.


and that was my September

    You've had yet another fabulous month of trips,walks and sniffs Harris. Let's hope this fine weather continues for a while longer so you, your parents and Uncle/Nephew B can enjoy some more days out before winter is truly upon us.

    We love this! Such a busy month and a great collection of photos of the wee dude πŸ’– Betty now feels inspired to get her act together and get back on Steller! Watch this doodle shaped space... x

  • coppernotes

    @Labradoodle37 I've no idea how I missed Betty's last story but this has now been rectified! Harris and I made an Executive Decision to make his stories a little shorter. Basically he pointed out that my job is to edit! Sooooo.... Look out for a story on Hopetoun House. It's a mix of photos with Harris and photos without. We haven't decided which one of us is writing it yet! πŸ™ˆ Will look out for Betty's next installment! X

    @rg117 Hello πŸ‘‹πŸ» don't tell anyone but it's one of my πŸ‘©πŸ»'s favourites too. "You're just soooo grumpy," she says. I don't know what she's talking about... 😏🐾

  • coppernotes

    @BereftStatistic We actually missed out two trips here! (As both are turning into individual stories!) Have photos from yesterday's castle trip and lots from Hopetoun House πŸ™ˆ Just back from the beach. CRAZY SUMMER WEATHER! πŸ˜―β˜€οΈ

    Love your September Harris. The weather for October hasn't been great so far, but hope you (and Uncle B) manage to have some more fab adventures. Ava and I have been busy and keep meaning to catch up on what you have been up to!

  • coppernotes

    @DachshundOtto Hello Otto and Ava πŸ‘‹πŸ»πŸ‘‹πŸ» I'm with you re October. We had sunshine and adventures last week but this week has been grey and rainy. I suspect my October Steller will involve lots of snuggling! πŸ™ˆ I miss evening walks. We've not got into a new routine yet. *sighs* Good to hear that you peeps are busy. Speak soon pals πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

    I've just caught up with Harris' September story. There's lots of lovely scenery and interesting buildings around you

  • coppernotes

    @beccarommell It has to be said, we do have some amazing locations/buildings in our 'hood. And here's the funny thing: before Harris came along, we didn't explore nearly as much as we do now, even though then, pup-free, would have been so much easier because we could have gone into places. Before, our weekend question was always: what's on at the cinema? We were there every weekend. Now, it's: where can we take Harris? This wee fella has made us get out and see things!
