I can’t believe that in just a few weeks, Stewie and Dumpling will have reached the ripe old age of 1 year. It only seems like yesterday, that we went to Swanley and brought them home. Well the above picture is of Stewie.. now when I have the camera out.. Stewie poses like a good boy and he absolutely adores having his photo taken.. in fact he is a bit of a poser for the camera.. to say the least.
As for Dumpling, well little harem scarem as we call her, sees the camera and thinks… ‘Oh that will fit nicely in my mouth.. thank you very much.’
I remember when they first arrived, how small they were and how much mischief they got into.. well nothing has changed, cos they still get into the mischief only difference now, is that they have grown and have started on bigger things. Most people mow the lawn… we mow the mud.
If there is trouble around, you can bet your bottom dollar that somewhere in amongst it is Dumpling… yes she will either be the one that instigates it or the one that gets her brother in trouble.
They say you shouldn’t work with animals or kids and believe me, these two are hard work especially if you want to take a photo of them. By the time you get one sitting nicely and in a good pose the other one is trying to ruin the shot by biting the other one’s head (playfully of course).
Even when little Dumpling did stay still for a photo she just couldn’t help but put her tongue out at the camera.
