Hannah & Hagar!

“Hagar The Horrible!“ Thats what he was known as! But he was far from that. he was originally named after the fictional cartoon character, that appeared in a Daily Newspaper some years ago. Hagar was only 8 years old, when he passed away today. He had been suffering from a growth, in  his oesophagus, the damage to this part of his little body could not be repaired.

It was a very, very sad end to one of natures Little Gentlemen.   As can be seen from his pictures, of which we really dont have enough, he was a real stocky typical West Highland terrier, full of fun, always on the go, and never bothered a soul.   He loved Rabbits, Rats and anything that could be caught! Although we have other dogs, he, will be very sadly missed. One of his most endearing habits was to talk to you! If you spoke to him, he would reply with a “MMUMPH!”  If he had any faults? I could honestly say, they were so trivial as to be not worth a mention. We have lost animals before, but this has been a sad day. Not just for me, but for my lady wife, Elizabeth, for twas she, who bought him as a small pup.   GoodBye “Son!"

  3. Oh I am so sorry to hear this. It is always hard when an animal that is close to us passes. I'm sure he will find lots of things to catch in Heaven.

  13. Yes, I agree with the others, I'm sure he'll be sorely missed. We used to have a Cairn terrier, and I've always had a soft spot for Westies.
