My 2nd Birthday

Yesterday was my birthday and I thought my peeps might have forgotten with all the excitement of pups and visitors but when I got up - this package was on the table.

Is that all for me?

I couldn't believe all the yummy things:

These scrummy chews and..

not just one fun treat puzzle but 2!

This bone shaped one was my favourite.

And there were packets of chewy crocodiles too and a box of little bone biscuits. And that wasn't all. Just as I was settling down for a snooze after a good session of munching, my peeps said I must get ready for going out! We were going out to a historic hotel which welcomes well-behaved dogs. Even though we weren't staying there they were happy for me to go in with Leigh & Judith for coffee and teacakes. Well I said I would pass on the snacks having had plenty before I left :-) Here are some pictures of our visit - the sun even came out to shine for us after all the rain:

This is me and Judith outside the hotel - it is called Monk Fryston Hall Hotel

Me and Judith in the lounge area enjoying the sun through the window.

Another view of the lounge with all the oak panelling. Parts of the hotel are over 800 years old.

Wow - is this the coffee and teacakes coming - all very smart with jam and little butter pats.

After the food (and I maybe did force myself to accept a morsel of teacake - just to be sociable of course) we all went for a stroll in the grounds. The cherry tree was huge - much bigger than the one in our garden:

and I had a chance to get a bit of furtling in too:

and then we were spotted by the ducks who thought my peeps had saved some teacake for them:

No chance guys. They were not happy and went off complaining :-)

Well - that was a day to remember - and I needed a good rest after all that excitement.

More puppy pictures later in the week!
