450 years ago today, in 1564, William Shakespeare was born …..
April 23rd is also St George’s Day, the patron saint of England ….
And, seven years ago today, a little black wriggly creature arrived in the world, who quickly grew a fluffy coat and turned into ……
Ben! Seen here at 10 weeks old. But he wasn’t little for very long. Anxiously watched over by my first Newfie, Amy, he grew and grew and grew …..
Seen here at a year old – he still loved his teddy bears ….
And seen here aged 2, he adored Amy, his “mum” – he wasn’t at all embarrassed to kiss her in public!
He’s always had star quality!
A real surf dude!
Sadly he lost his “mum” (that’s Amy above) in 2010, and was an only dog for a while…
Until in January 2013 ….
He became a big brother when Daisy arrived!
Supervising your naughty little sister can be very tiring ….
Though he loves her very much and is a most excellent big brother!
Happy seventh birthday Ben!!
