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.

IMG_4101  Just beautiful – 1 year old – and his name is Ballard      the younger St Bernard is 7 months – still a puppy – but he has a very deep bark

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

img_2382  and a little dog

Just 2 small hand carved wooden animals.  I particularly like the grain of the wood in the little bear.  Simple objects which I have on my desk.  (Part of the clutter to the despair of my sons!)
