Dancing in the street All by himself, but he was enjoying the band that were playing a few feet away!
Ruby on the beach Ruby, a Springer Spaniel we met last year in Bunnyconnellan, is still down in Myrtleville! Her owner must be living down there somewhere. We threw a stick for her a few times and then walked over to Fennell’s Bay and she followed us with her tail wagging! It was a pleasure […]
