Some of my favourite recent photos that I haven’t already posted are these: Gizmo munching on his dentastick! Probably anxiously, to make sure notorious bickie thieves (me and my family) can’t steal them. It’s a hard life being a dog 🐶

Yesterday we got to bring Gizmo to the beach for the first time in a few weeks! Gizmo was loving it, charging around exploring every shrub, darting back and forth… he even got in a game of chasey with this other dog he met there. Great day 🐶

Day 5 of the photoblogging challenge has the easiest prompt… pets! 🤣 For this one, have an old photo of my cat Gidget and my parents' dog Gizmo. They may be different species but they’re still BFFs, and have been since Gidget was about 14 weeks old. 🐱🐶

The dog beach was the place to be yesterday! Beautiful weather, and many many dogs. Gizmo certainly enjoyed himself 🐶

We paid a visit to this little guy (and his humans) yesterday. Although he was excited when we got there, he later growled a lot when he thought I was trying to steal his bickie, and finished the night hiding under an armchair so Thor, God of Thunder, wouldn’t find him 😢

I realised I’ve been slacking on the photo posts lately, so here’s Gizmo a couple of weekends ago. It was quite a warm afternoon, so the second we reached the shoreline at the beach, he wasted no time dunking himself in the water!

The consummate NYE guest, and the cat who was very unhappy to see him back again after a six month absence 😾

Christmas was a busy day this year! We had lunch with (predominantly) my mum’s side of the family, and dinner with my partner’s family (although, while I say “dinner”, I personally was so stuffed from lunch I didn’t end up eating anything 😂). Below have some photos I took at lunch. For my mum, it was her first excursion out of the house since her mid-year health crisis, so it was a big relief that it was a resounding success! For the rest of us, it was a welcome chance to catch up after a very long and difficult year. Today we’re off to a Boxing Day picnic with my dad’s side of the family, which I’m also looking forward to.
