Hi All

Sorry its been a while but its been a bit busy in our household this year. Children studying for A Level exams and GCSE exams and SATS, not been able to get anywhere near the computer.

Anyway I thought I would post some recent pictures of the boys. They have just celebrated their birthdays, Rudi was 1 on the 20th August and Harvey was 2 on the 22nd of August. Enjoy!!

These were taken for a local fun dog show. Harvey came 1st in Fancy Dress and 1st in Best Trick. Rudi came 2nd in Fancy Dress and 3rd in Best Trick. I think Harvey's attire is very appropriate!!



This one is just a snap photo that my son took of Rudi while laid on my lap and I just love it.


These are of the birthday boys, we are still laughing at the way Rudi is sat in front of the cake.



The boys with Rudi's brother Barney. What are the chances of getting 3 dogs to do this and the camera actually working for once!!!



I made the doggy birthday cake, got the recipe off the internet, chicken and carrot cake!!
