Hobson is 12 Years Old today, 10 June 2015

I tried to buy a healthy Birthday cake for Hobson without any luck so the closest I could find was a carrot cake. We lit the candles outside so that Hobson could share his Birthday with his horse brothers, Hallmark and Charlamayne and his horse sister, Khatalyst.

I had my work cut out for me with Misty who wanted to jump onto the table and devour Hobson’s cake. I did not realise the table needed a scrub after all the rain we've had but this did not end up happening. 

Hallmark checked out Hobson’s photo, licked the cream off my plate and cleaned up Hobson’s and Misty’s bowls. He was not happy with me that I did not give him a piece of carrot cake. 

We had a happy and peaceful time together. We went for a drive down to Natural Bridge in the Numinbah Valley in the afternoon. Misty had her head out of the window and pretty well barked non-stop because she knew she was in the country. Hobson was quiet, as usual, but when I asked him if he was alright, his tail did not stop wagging. 

My boy has become frail in many ways but he is happy and I am so grateful that I can still care for him and love him and cherish him. His sister, Misty adores him. We are both very lucky to have Hobson in our lives .. my most precious, beautiful English Setter boy. xxxxxxxx

Hi Susan have not been on here for ages (various reasons) but was so pleased to see your photographs of Hobson on his 12th birthday and of course Misty too. They are looking lovely hope everything is a lot better for you now.
Best wishes to you and your lovely Setters.

Dear Barbara, Silvia, James, Sue, Cornelia, Martina, Catherine, Valerie and Anna and all your precious Setters and other family members

I just read out all your comments to Hobson and his tail wagged furiously. On behalf of Hobson, I thank you all very much for your Happy Birthday wishes. (Hobson is an exceptionally intelligent English Setter and he understands everything. He loves to be loved so he is very grateful to all of you).

Best Wishes to you all from Hobson, Misty, Susan and the rest of our family xxxx
