Unbelievable!! Our Joyful Bundle is three years old today!!

She's a happy girl most of the time and why shouldn't she be with spring being so beautiful this year!

At three years of age, she should have learned to walk nicely on the leash ...

Well - we are trying our best and she can be most obedient :-)).

With the excitement of our Tour however, she seems to forget from time to time and with a twinkle in my eyes - and left with the only excuse that she's a Setter after all - I dance with Joy: (there was a mountain biker just ahead of us :D)Joy is not much of a pincher - but she has a weekness for brushes and brooms :-)).

She likes to do what we do and play with what we play - here we tried to play Boccia:

Joy soon got the hang of it and invented her own rules :-)).

She can be sooo focused -

and sooo absorbed in play!!

In the evening she is tired and most nights she carries her cushion upstairs to go to bed (some nights she is too tired for that last task!) - besides mine that's where she wants to stay an so I just put a kiddybed mattress on the ground.

And after a good nights rest, we're up and about again! 

So Happy Birthday my Happy Bundle - the next Tour blog will follow soon, for we managed to cover quite a strech those last few days - and how adventurous they were!!!
