HS:MS - Dog


This doggie - Ben, is my Mum's dog. There are no pet pooches in our house unfortunately (yet anyway, but thats another story...). These photos were taken in Silloth earlier this year. We had gone up to visit my ma when she was on holiday and we went down to the beach at Maryport; thought we'd have a game of baseball!! Check out my wicked baseball attire lol (Shaun snr said to me on the beach - 'loving your beach coat Charl'. Yeah, cheers mate).

But Ben (doggie) had other ideas!! He grabbed hold of the bat and would not let go!! This was probably the most exercise I had had in years, since before my Shaun was born!! I was a bit of a fitness freak in those days. And now, I think looking after the Shauns is exercise enough! So I called on the help of my younger bro, Jack, and still the dog would not let up. So final picture - dog, triumphant, running back to us, or rather round us, waving the bat in a 'come and have a go if you think you're hard enough' fashion.


Another pic below of us all together on the beach, courtesy of tripod!



And one of my favourite pics from Silloth, my mum and Shaun Jr - they love each other so much - how happy it makes me to see them together!! There were tears when we were leaving!! Today, I am off to find a halloween costume for young Shamus (shaun jr), we're thinking of having a little halloween party for him! And also, I absolutely must get some pics of him for these cute halloween papers from Crop Til You Drop, in the October 07 Personal Shopper Kit!! They are cool and I have created a layout already, its just sitting there, waiting for his pic!!
So I will say good day to yall folks, better go as Shaun is wrecking the place!!
Have a fab day and thanks for reading!

He obviously loves a game - once they get hold of something they really don't want to give it up
