A Man's Best Friend

This Christmas was a rather special one.

Not only does December host the bringing of Santa Claus in our household, it also marks our father's birthday (and my mum and eldest brothers for that matter). But this year our dad got the present he has always been hoping for — a Springer Spaniel! 

Allow me to introduce, Cooper. This pure bred bundle of joy has been pottering about our house for the past number of weeks, melting hearts wherever his nose may take him. And as you can expect, we're over the moon with him!

Despite Cooper being a birthday present for our dad, I've a feeling he'll be spending a lot of time with me ;). Who knows, maybe he'll join me in the Mournes someday!
