All growed up

Bingley is 4 years old today! But at 38 kilos, his weight is the only thing which sets him apart from the little bundle of pupness who came to live with us four years ago. He might look like a big boy, and when he barks he can sound like a big boy – but really he’s still a mischievous little puppy who measures everything in terms of how much fun it’s going to be.

Luckily the fun is usually mutual; although this morning when he snaffled and chewed up my favourite spotty handkerchief, the fun was definitely one sided! Nevertheless it’s his birthday, so after a couple of quiet sobs I figured he might as well have his birthday cake after all. And, needless to say, much more besides!

We get so much joy from this little boy that none of us can resist making a fuss on his special day.

Happy 4th birthday Bing!

This blog entry has made me so happy (and very ashamed too!). Happy belated birthday to the Mighty Bing! It really doesn't seem long since Jane talked about getting a dog-and what a handsome boy he is. Its a grey and wet Friday lunchtime in Belfast so this has cheered me up immensely. Love to all, and I will email Jane at the weekend. Harvey and Stan send wags. Claire x x x

Thank you so much Claire for your cheery greetings - Bingley loved receiving them!

We all think about you and your Mum and the wonderful Harvey and the cool Stanley very regularly!

Love and hugs to you all from Jane & Rob & delighted woofs from Bingley XXxxXX
