Our Maltese Chicki likes nothing better than to visit our local park with us, and walk along the sand — ever alert for new and exciting smells.
However, she doesn’t seem to mind giving this hobby a rest and trying her other penchant: posing.
Now that there are so many lovely Spring wildflowers in bloom, there’s an even sweeter background for her photograph.
Life’s a beach….
Is that what Chicki’s thinking?
Doesn’t she look relaxed as she takes in the beautiful surroundings?
It’s a far cry from the animal shelter where we first met, almost two years ago…..
Life’s a Beach…
Ron and Chicki
Chicki knew she had to be good. After all, Santa was watching : and all she wanted was a new rope toy.
So, as her daddy Ron received his gift from her mummy Margaret, she was all alert and expectant.
Her face said, ‘Where’s mine?’
Within seconds it appeared, and all was excitement!
The game that ensued amongst us all became a Christmas highlight!
What would Christmas be without special moments like these?
Chicki’s 2nd birthday
It’s not every day our little girl turns two!
Her day started with a much-loved present: a brand new rope toy, which instantly found its way between her teeth, where she held it for what seemed as long as possible for a little Maltese.
After breakfast, we’re off to the park for a stroll on the promenade, and a sniff around the distant beach.
Time to head home, but, surprisingly we all hear a chorus: Happy Birthday to You! Sure, it was meant for someone else, but we added our Chicki’s name, and it became the perfect end to her special day out.
Happy Birthday, Chicki!
