Lunch With The St Bernards August 18, 2017

Filed under: Dogs,Saint Bernards — Janet @ 6:14 pm

There is a pub near us here in Ballard called The Barking Dog.  I went there a few days ago for lunch and I had the good fortune to be greeted by 2 St Barnards.  Massive dogs.  I was delighted.

I am partial to St Bernards – my first dog was part St Bernard
