Chester and lots of doggies

Hello everybody,

Yesterday I drove over from Chester back here to Oxfordshire. I stayed wednesday night with a friend of mine called Isolde who works at the Chester Zoo in the reptile section. We worked together in 1997 when I did a keeper exchange with another guy and he worked at Taronga Zoo where I was working fulltime.

It was great to see her and meet her newish family of three dogs, a Japanese chin called Pumpkin who is 2 years old, a chihuahua called Rosie who is 1 and a Cavalier Spaniel called Poppy who is 3. All real characters and they sure kept me amused and it was funny to hear of Rosie pulling out a friends underwear and bringing them downstairs when they didn't keep their bedroom door closed.

Mum, can I get down now, this is not quite right!!!

Me,  Rosie and Pumpkin.

I am just a laid back doggie!!!
I is the boss and she does what I says!!!!
