This year has been one of many ups and downs for our family so I wanted to put a few of my favourite pictures to gether from this year for all to enjoy!

This is Crunchie and Polo whom we lost this year. They were 7 yrs ol and brothers. Crunchie went first in February and Polo followed shorty after. They were firm friends of Rubys. In this picture they are tucking in to her dinner- what you dont see is her giving them the naughtiest of looks!!

Everyone was eating dinner and she got up on this chair in the dining room as if to say "well, wheres mine then!"

After a long walk in to town we all chill out with an ice cream- she has one a year on holiday- nope thats a lie I was trying to sound good. She likes a mini milk every now and again!!! This is in Scarborough

This is in my top 5 of favorites as it shows her doing what she loves best! Getting messy!

In september this year my little monster came along- so full of life and joy. He put a sparkle back in all our lives- including Rubys. She started to act like a pup again!

He stole Calums dora sofa for the day!

These are wonderful, Karen.

It cannot be said enough to take LOADS of photos.. it might not seem important now but they will be wonderful memories in the future.

What a nice selection of photographs, I agree it is nice to have photos to look back to, not very good at that, always forget the camera when something special going on, although hubby does say we do have rather a lot of Jasper over the years. May I ask how old Ruby was when you got Charlie, I would love another cav, but with Jasper having MVD and being 9 1/2 and being very spoilt I am not sure it would be fair, but I note your comment about Ruby having a new lease of life.

Ruby will be 3 at the end of this month and Charlie has been with us a couple of months. he will be 1 beginning of december.
I really struggled with the desision for another- looked in to a young puppy but didnt think all the puppy energy would be fair on her. But I wanted her to have the experience of a friend and knew that the sooner it happened the better.We were very lucky to find Charlie, even with the MVD. For however long we are blessed with him it will be worth it as he has found his heaven here im sure.
they love each other very much (IMO)!!
