Hi Cathy
I have really enjoyed looking through your photos. The pair of them really do have a good bond, you can see it in their expressions. Quite often the photo's show them posing in almost exact symmetry, wow!

Hi Cathy,
Many thanks for your invitation at becoming your ES friend, and it is certainly with great pleasure. I watched all your pictures of course and your boys are wonderful, and it seems that you are living in a great spot form them... Please give them both a big cuddle for me!

Hi, Great pictures and an interesting discussion seems we all have the same idea about our Irish boys & girls they are characters and wonderful fun even when they have their naughty moments .. I smiled reading your posting about being interupted with a soft toy as only earlier this evening I had the ball bounced off my leg thats Murphy speak for play with me now and dont worry about the mud I have just brought in!
