The Photo Gallery 229: One Day in May

A photo posted by Tara Cain (@taralara) on

On Sunday our bestest boy celebrated his fourth birthday.
We treated him by leaving him on his own all morning as we were out at rugby trials which took ages. He pretty much slept the whole time.
We got home at around 1pm and spoilt him rotten.
He’s not one for toys or treats (although if you give him a carrot he’ll be your best friend for ever).
What he got instead was a long walk, lots of fuss and the chance to curl up on the sofa with his muzzle buried into my back.

Pretty much his ideal day.

Ronin is one of the best things that ever happened to this family. He’s like the perfect advert for why every family should have a dog.
Happy birthday you beautiful boy. We loves you very much.

Take a photo using the theme I’ve given as your inspiration. There are no rules and you can interpret the theme any way you like.

 Write a blog post using your photo. You can write as many or as few words as you like. You don’t even need to use a new photo; just a photo you think represents the prompt.

 Add the Photo Gallery badge (and the foot of this post) to your post so other readers can find the other entries.

The Photo Gallery isn’t about taking technically brilliant photos. You can take them on your phone, your point and shoot or your fancy pants camera. It’s about having a passion for photos, wanting to better yourself and discovering what other bloggers are doing.

    Hi Tara

    Am looking through your recipe index, because I have a memory of a post you did once with a recipe for chocolate truffles. Can’t find it. Maybe my memory is wrong, but if you still have it, could you give me a link. Thanks.

    What is it with dogs and carrots? Mine loves them too although he doesn’t eat them but just crunches them up all over the floor.
