Look at how cute sleepy Indie is. I left her at home while I headed to the office for a few hours. When I came back she’d made herself comfortable in my bed, which I hadn’t bothered to make even though I’m a 30 year old woman.
Happy birthday, Indie. Although I’m not 100% sure when her birthday is, I got Indie from the SSPCA in November 2006. I was told she was around 6 months old at that point, which means her birthday is some time around now.
This year has been tough. Indie had a tumour cut out and got pancreatitis in the space of 4 weeks. She’s definitely back to her normal self now, which I’m relieved about. Love you, girl!
On Saturday I took a road trip to Dundee with Ayden. A 180 mile round trip to pick up Ayden’s new puppy, Bronson. Of course I had to take my camera.
Luna had just been collected by her new owner, leaving Olive, Max and Bronson (Ayden’s puppy). Max (the black puppy) is the runt of the litter. His back paws have fallen off to leave him with stumps, but he’s a beautiful pup and was walking about without any issue.
It was quite a challenge to visit a litter of French Bulldog puppies and leave empty handed. It’s safe to say I will now find any excuse to visit Ayden and Bronson!
Gosh, this is the longest I’ve went without updating my photo blog. I won’t be making a habit of it, it just so happened I’ve been ‘busy’. (I hate that word. Despite being ‘busy’ I’ve still found time to watch Casey Neistat Vlogs, so it’s less about being ‘busy’ and more about not prioritising taking pictures.)
I have some exciting trips coming up, so that will change. In a couple of weeks I’ll be in New York for my sister’s hen do. When I get back from NYC, a bunch of us avid Instagram users are heading to Isle of Skye for a photo trip. FUN!
Tomorrow is a huge day for the Baxter clan. We welcome my nephew into the family. I can’t wait to meet him, although it still doesn’t seem real yet. We’re a small, fairly close family and this is the first baby to come along, so it’s a pretty big deal for us and we’re all very excited.
This is Malia, my sister’s dog. I’m not sure how Malia will handle no longer being the centre of attention. I’ll still make a point of photographing her funny face, but I definitely anticipate a lot of baby photos appearing on this blog.
I haven’t photographed Macy since she was a puppy… 2 years ago! With the beautiful weather we’ve been having, Sheryl and I took the dogs a walk along the Clyde. Indie—my dog—isn’t the most sociable when it comes to other dogs, but she did well with two pugs dancing around her paws.
I don’t photograph Indie much any more. Ever since I took a photo of her every week for a year, photographing her became kind of tedious. But then I see her sitting like this, cocking her head in that cute way and enjoying the winter sun as it spills into our living room, and I remember just how photogenic she is.
As always, I am spending Christmas with my family in Inverkip. My family is quite small, comprising of my sister, mother, gran, and my mother’s boyfriend, Phil. Oh, and I mustn’t forget the dogs – they are a huge part of our family, too. My sister and I were walking our dogs this morning, and Malia took a grumpy turn when we headed home.
Merry Christmas! I hope you aren’t having a grumpy Christmas like Malia.
