John has got me thinking about photos which I have taken, because actually I have always taken a lot of photos. He has given me some advice on digitalising them, which I may take up.
In the meantime, (in my new found enthusiasm I want to start posting pics straight away) here are some old photos which I have taken a picture of on my digital of my dog Tessa when she was a lot younger. In April she will be sixteen. There is a puppy photo of her with outsize ears, which she later grew into, like all puppies do. They always have oversized feet and ears.
Secondly, a picture of her with me in front of some Yorkshire moorland. This was when Tessa was my baby, and I didn't have any real ones. I'm sure she didn't need carrying about that like that, as she is quite a big dog.
Thirdly Tessa has always liked swimming and here is her way in the distance in the middle of a Scottish loch.
When Jack was born you can see that he has usurped Tessa status a bit and here is her trying to get on Mark's knee along with Jack.
Lastly, we read in a book that the best way to introduce a dog to a new baby is to let the dog approach them in their own way. It goes without saying that you need to have the utmost trust in the dog, which we did. This is her on that occasion and it was very nice as she went up to him and licked him.
