walter, age four

Today my boy turned four. We celebrated with a long walk on the beach in the hazy afternoon sun.

Extra treats have been enjoyed at breakfast and supper, and at intervals in between.
He's displayed delinquent behaviour today, ignoring me and doing exactly as he pleased. He may have turned four, but he hasn't really grown up that much - and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Happy happy birthday, my sweet boy!

I seem to have been neglecting this space of late. I've had some changes with my work which have been a little chaotic, though positive, and I'm still adjusting. I hope to be back tomorrow!

If a dog can't ignore his owner on his birthday then when can he ?

He looks adorable!

What no Jelbert's ice cream, no wonder he was in delinquent mood! A very Happy Birthday to that gorgeous boy of yours and here's to many many more.

Love that photo with the Mount, makes me feel quite homesick. Great news on the work front D.

Happy Birthday Walter! So handsome!
Our black lab turned three at the weekend ... no signs of settling down and becoming more mature either.In fact she's been very naughty on her walks today ... running off and refusing to come back. She's in disgrace right now!

Sorry, but I do love that Walter was delinquent on his birthday! There's nothing funnier than a delinquent dog. And I should know!

Looks like you both had a great day!
