Young Master Eachann aged 2 -what a smiley boy.
About Master Eachann
He was born in Preston on 5th August 2014. His mother is Ellie and he has a brother called Jay and a sister called Zena. Eachann is a Flat Coated Retriever. He now lives beside Ghillie’s Bothy where he is chief greeter of two legged and four legged guests.
Rolling– in summer he likes rolling around in the long grass and collecting grass seed in his coat, which we then spend the evening picking out of his hair! In winter wet leaves are favourite, followed by snow and wet grass. Again we spend the cold evenings picking the debris out of his coat! He still likes ‘collecting’ small items from around the house such as shoes, clothes or the odd tool put down in the wrong place! He has also developed a passion for being vacuumed- yes really! Every time the vacuum comes out Eachann is there waiting for his grooming to commence!
Getting into the car. Once in he resigns himself to the journey but he will not get in under his own steam regardless of what we try to bribe him with!
