Happy Birthday Gertrude!!

Happy Birthday to you!

Happy Birthday to you!

Happy Birthday dear Gertroooooode......

Happy Birthday to you!

Well - today was Gertrude's 2ND birthday!

Mummy made her a yummy liver and garlic cake....

Gertrude was so keen to eat it that she singed her beard on the candles!

(no harm was done by the way!)

Enough of these photos - let us EAT it!!

Come on then - cut the cake.....!

Is your slice bigger than mine??

Can we eat it yet?

Come on then! -this is torture!!Then mummy put the cake away - what a spoilsport! I tried my most pleading look to get her to change her mind (on behalf of the birthday girl of course!)
I even kept guard of the cake all afternoon - again, all for Gert's sake.....

Please Sir....can I have some MORE.....???!!!And here is the birthday girl - looking pretty pleased with herseld after her scrumptious treat. Who needs presents when you have got liver cake and a big red special birthday bow to wear!
Happy Birthday gorgeous girl

Lots of love from Kate, Paul and Molly-moo

We haven't updated our blog for a while - so here's a quick taster

of what we have been up to!

We've had LOTS of great trips out - daddy took us to Dartmoor one day and we walked and walked and climbed and ran and had a wonderful time.

We especially love climbing on the rocks.

Molly is always the King of the Castle

Surveying the wilderness
Some horses came by, so we kept watch from afar
Another day, mummy took us to the local park to play with some of our doggy pals Alert Gert!

We love meeting new friends

Sometimes our old frined Chester the Airedale comes to this park, but we haven't seen him for a while now. He is very slow and old and has trouble with his hips, poor thing.
Here's daddy giving us a little lecture on how to use the baby equipment. This is apparantly a seat for the car - now we both know how to strap little baby Torney in so we'll be able to help out if neccessary.
We listened very hard and had a good sniff - just to be sure we understood properly

This is our mummy THREE weeks ago! Blimey - you can imagine how big she is now! We are worried she is going to burst.

Here are some photos of baby Torney's nursery
There are lots of toys....we're sure he wont want to play with any of those for quite a while.... Do you think WE could instead??

There are quite a few Dale pictures around the place - this little baby is going to grow up loving us Dales of course!!

Mummy drew this little picture of Molly sitting in our front door for Baby Torney - we hope he likes it.

Well - bye for now!
Lots of love from
Molly and Gertrude
