Shih Tzu in the sun

Shih Tzu in the sun

We attended a beautiful christening in Fermoy today and afterwards it was off to Mitchelstown where we joined the other guests in a light lunch of finger food and sandwiches. Loved that apple tart afterwards. Yum!

This is our shih tzu, Oscar, who we took along for the drive. After the main course was over half the crowd piled out onto the adjoining terrace and so I got Oscar from the car. He had a great time, and was a big hit with all the kids but we did warn them he was a little odd and liable to snap so they were careful. Later I checked the temperature in the car dashboard and it said 25C which I hope is as hot as it’s going to get in Ireland this year. I had to seek the shade, it was so hot!

    Best blog title of the year! Brilliant.

    All I can think of is Weezers song ‘Island in the Sun.’

    Shih Tzu in the sun still rhymes though.

    Hey, were you aware that your flickr account is not updating?

    Thanks Robert – hadn’t even thought of that tbh!

    Katie – I know, I haven’t had time to update both in the past few weeks so I let it slide. I’m going to update the missing images sometime this week. Finally got a major project sorted out at work which may free up some time (but I doubt it really!)
    See here for more info – :)

    Hey, I know this dog! So I must have met you too and your wife and baby — this world is a small place! Got the hang of programme mode now, thanks for that, and had a great time in Cork. Good to meet you!
