My Mum says, "You're never to old to have one planted on you by your Mother." Looking at Bert's face when I planted one on him, after I presented him with his birthday cake, at the age of fifteen you might not be so comfortable with it though. Bert was playing to the camera (Well, I hope he was), because he still likes to give his old Mum a peck on the cheek before going to bed.
You might wonder, where is Henry ? Look closely and you will see him. Well, just his paw in the bottom left hand corner of the photo.
After we had Bert's birthday tea, my husband David and me were sat at the table, as the children dispersed. Primrose jumped up on David's lap and I caught this lovely photo of her next to Bert's birthday cake and I thought it almost looks like she is thinking, "If only I had opposable thumbs, as I could just cut myself a slice of that cake. Sometimes my life is a dog's life."
I just got home from milking this morning after publishing this blog last night and thought of another caption for Primrose's photo below. Primrose thinks, "If I had opposable thumbs. Today a slice of that cake with a cup of tea, and then tomorrow I take over the world !"
The rest of the photos tonight are the wind down after all the excitement of celebrating our youngest and oldest child's birthdays over the weekend and today.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
