Polly Five Years On

A Facebook memory reminder today was a photo of Polly from five years ago. We found Polly on the 6th of January 2013 when she was probably about 8 weeks old. It’s been fascinating to see how she’s grown in confidence over five years although she still does not like strangers and hides if anyone comes to the house only making an exception for Naomi who she has decided to be friends with. I started to blog the same year that Polly arrived so her life with me has been well documented. Here is a look back.

Snapshot Sunday: Toby &Teddy

I just love my pets to pieces so decided to post a couple of shots of my dogs when they were a bit younger. Toby just turned seven on the tenth. He has started to get a bit gray around the face but he is still a real live wire. He never tires of chasing the ball or the Frisbee which he loves. He’s always wanting to go for a walk or a ride in the car. Teddy’s birthday is on the fourteenth of February. He is much quieter than Toby and very loyal. He is always at my feet and he follows me everywhere. He loves his walks too but he hardly ever brings back a ball if you throw it for him. Recently he has decided to play with the soft squeaky toys he has ignored for years so he got new ones for Xmas. His favourite time to play with one of them is when I am talking on the phone. Teddy will turn five in February. Here are my beautiful boys.

Bad Photo Monday:Bitumen

Well we had been on our walk and I had been stopping quite a lot to take photos of the roses and other flowers for a post I wanted to do. The dogs had been quite patient waiting for me to take my photos. We were walking through the carpark on our way to the front of the building when Teddy suddenly pulled sharply on his lead. You can see his little head in the photo. I was still holding my camera so I ended up with this shot of the bitumen carpark complete with bird poop.


I am blaming Teddy for this one!

At last an easy one! The hard part today was which photos of my beautiful pets to choose as I have a lot of them. In this end I came up with these. I hope you all enjoy them.
