Hi, I’m Ernie and this is my mum, Jenny. She’s a national newspaper journalist turned roving repawter but the real star of the show is me.

I’m a three-year-old Westie boy from sunny Southend-on-Sea in Essex. I might be crossed with another type of dog but my mum and dad – who’s called Nick – really aren’t sure. It’s the floppy ears that give me away, I think.

We love exploring new places so thought it would be fun to share our discoveries with the world. I’ve done all the hard work – going on nice holidays, eating lots of treats and taking plenty of long walks – but Mum has done all the writing because I’m not too good with computers. We hope you enjoy reading all about our adventures!
