Wordless Wednesday – Nap time!

Welcome back to this weeks Wordless Wednesday hosted by BlogPaws. 
This week Alfie decided to go for a nap while I typed up a few emails. As I take photos like there is no tomorrow I decided to get a few snaps. It took Alfie quite a while to close his eyes…

R.I.P Toys!

Alfie is a murderer. A series of toys have died recently.
With Alfie going through serious teething at 3 months he has managed to rip some toys to shreds. You can tell his teeth are really aching as it is not a playful bite but a really-squashing-down-on-the-growing-teeth bite!
Any advice on teething is welcome and would be greatly appreciated!

Hello and welcome back to another round up of the week! To view the other posts click here

This week has been great! Alfie got his final vaccination on Tuesday so he has been able to go for walks all week!
Lets start with Monday…
We had a BBQ on Monday to enjoy the weather! Family and friends came over and Alfie loved it! He loves people so being surrounded by them all day is his version of heaven. When the weather is hot and sunny he gets incredibly tried and will constantly sleep. It’s almost like a sunbathing plan! He’ll go outside for about 10 minutes, then in the shade, then inside, then back to the garden! He did this all day on Monday and played in between. In a way I kind of wanted him to be like the dogs in movies who steal a line of sausages and run off! But that didn’t happen, in fact he never once went for our food.
