We all hopped in the car this morning, dogs included, and headed off to visit Richard's sister and husband. They live in the country, besides some farms and a weather station there's not much around. It's a beautiful place but it's either very cold or very wet and today it was icy cold.
Julie and Michael have recently welcomed a new member into their family and once we saw the photos we had to meet him too.
Meet Paddy, a 3 year old Irish Wolfhound. He was born in Dublin on St Patrick's Day. Isn't he beautiful? Such a gentle boy who just melts your heart. He's found a lovely home with Julie and Michael and other family members.

This is Laz, the older gentleman of the house and then we have
the four alpacas and some cows too.
Our dogs Lulu and Julius had a fantastic day with their "cousins". There were 8 dogs in total today. They played, ran, ate all day. Towards the end of the day Julius got a bit "overtired" and started getting a bit snitchy so we decided it was time to go home.
Oh and our real kids had a great time too.
And some more photos of the day.
