Hector checking out Simons tools!
This has been a particularly quiet week with Hector. We were getting some work done on the house so we really didn't get out much. We were getting rid of warped draughty doors so we don't freeze next winter!!
Hector was really good when the carpenter was here. At first I dropped him to Nikita's house because I thought he would be a nuisance but I had him here all Thursday afternoon and Friday and he was very good. There was a lot of noise from the industrial sander, drill and other machinery but he was not phased by it at all. He did help to empty Simon's tool box every now and again robbing some nice chewy rawlplugs or pieces of wood but other than that he just rummaged about or slept.
Hector: Simon's toolbox was like a treasure trove! It was very exciting, pity they wouldn't let me play with it for a bit longer.
When Hector got to see Nikita on Wednesday he discovered that he likes the water and is a natural water baby. He jumped in and out of the water puddles and plunged into some deep spots but never got nervous or afraid of the water.
Hector: This is myself and Nikita having some fun at the beach! We love to chase around after each other!
Roundstone, a quiet fishing village in Connemara.
This will be good for us because all going well he will come on holidays with us to Roundstone in the Summer where we will be on the beach every day weather permitting.
Hector: "I can't wait for Roundstone. From what i've heard it sounds like it is going to be a lot of fun. Apparently there are loads and loads of beaches for me to play on as well. I really do love to swim and play in the water."
Getting in-touch with his feminine side
Myself and Alice had a night in during mid-term break watching a movie. Hector came running in with a pink bow from a flower wrapper which he thought he could chew on. I took it off of him and within a few minutes he fell asleep. Alice thought it would be cute if we tied it to his collar for a giggle. Here is Hector having a pink moment!
Hector: Hey who put this on me when I was asleep, that was a bit cheeky!
Aidan brought him to vote on Friday evening. Not sure whether Hector had any influence over Aidan's decisions or not, who knows. Can you believe I forgot to go with them for a photo opportunity. He got a fair bit of attention while he was there. People came over to talk to him and to joke about who was going to be voting, Aidan or Hector!!
Hector: I know my politics and I won't be telling anybody who would I would have voted for if I was given a chance to put my mark on the ballot paper.
This morning we popped out for a while and took a bus trip to the chemist for some medicine we needed. Hector does not mind going on the bus at all, I think he actually enjoys getting on and off the bus. most people are very curious and often stop to have a chat and ask all about puppy-walking. I am always happy to tell them about what I do and the different stages the dog goes through in their training.
A trip on the bus to go to the chemist this morning.

Well goodbye for this week. I wonder what we will get up to in this coming week, I promise I will try and keep my camera with me and have plenty of pictures of his trips and adventures!
