We’ve had lots of visitors lately and have been taking the opportunity to get out and about a bit. Matt’s brother James was over from New Zealand and came up to see our new home, and as he’d never been to the Highlands before we decided to show him some of the fantastic scenery on Skye – luckily we picked a gorgeous sunny day so we had a great day wandering around in the sunshine taking photographs and eating fish and chips and ice creams! Proper tourists!!
We have also recently adopted a new addition into our family…Dylan the puppy! He is a 4 month old black Labrador, unbelievably he came from a rescue home, which is probably because he still likes to bite a little when he’s playing.That hasn’t stopped him being a big hit with all the guests in the hostel though, and a couple of times he has even sneaked down to entertain them all without us knowing!We are doing quite well on the training front, mainly using food which seems to be a great motivator (like owner like dog?!). He’s still struggling to get to grips with the bed-making downstairs but we’re sure he’ll get there soon enough….!
We’ve been enjoying taking him for some little walks round the village and Loch Oich, it doesn’t take too much to tire him out at the moment, but it’s great when he’s just flaked out in the evening on the floor… cuddles aplenty and no energy for biting or chewing!
