Dogs On Thursday

Welcome to this weeks Dogs on Thursday!
(Sorry I am running late I didn't have a chance to post before running to class/work this morning.)

We have two new members Megan and Alice. Everyone go say Hello and Welcome.

I had a fantastic time on my three week trip abroad to Ireland, Wales, Scotland and England.
There are no words to describe the emotions I experienced while visiting these amazing places.
Thank you Natalie for holding the fort while I was away.
I took tons of pictures of everything on my trip and will be sharing some of them on my blog as the months go by.
I think between my husband and I we took a total of about 3,000 pictures. I haven't looked at the final count but I know it is up there.
Anyway I did take some pictures of some dogs that we encountered that I will share with you over the next several weeks.

This one is of a very happy little Irish dog that we met at a photo stop/bathroom break on the way to Adare from Limerick

The young man who's donkey and dog owned him said that the dogs name was Jasper (at least that is what I thought he said as his accent was thick and hard to understand.)
The young man said Jasper always enjoys riding on the back on the donkey and will get upset when he is not able to and will bark constantly at his feet, so he gives in and puts him up to ride on the donkey's back to make him happy.
He posed well for all the tourists and was quite a friendly little guy.
You can even see him smiling as he sits the soaking up the warm sunlight.

Since summer is upon us already it is almost time for another swap.
I was wondering if you would be interested in a secret swap or one where you know who your pal is?
Please let me know by leaving your thoughts in the comments.

Oh my goodness! The man, the donkey, and Jasper sound like wonderful characters in a children's book! How lovely!
