There he is!
Jimmy is an 18 month old Keeshond. He's my first dog, gets spoilt rotten and treated a bit like a baby. It's not unknown for him to be given the odd salmon fillet for his dinner.
But he deserves it; he's grown up to be a very good little boy!
We brought Jimmy home with us back in November 2011 as a very cute 8 week old fluffy puppy. If we'd thrown a brown hood on him he wouldn't have looked dissimilar to an Ewok
Jimmy loves chicken
Jimmy loves little dogs with a sense of style
Jimmy loves causing havoc in the garden
Jimmy loves to stare at Mummy for hours on end for no particular reason
And Jimmy loves to photobomb
He brings so much laughter into our house. Everyone should have an entertaining little ball of fluff in their life!
Today we were off to visit Mary and Andy in their new flat and we decided to take Jimmy - or James Herbert Chew as Alex likes to call him - along with us.
In anticipation of the weekend of good weather we were promised, the boots were left in the cupboard and the mouse flats were out
So far Jimmy hasn't been a big fan of being in the back of the car. Perhaps we hadn't taken him for enough car rides to get him used to it.
But today he seemed rather keen.
"Right Mum, I'm comfortable and ready to go!"
We popped in for some lunch at the Red Lion & Sun, a lovely dog friendly pub in Highgate that does consistently good food. Kate Moss celebrated her last birthday here, fact fans.
Jimmy stared up in anticipation of what delicious treat he was going to get for lunch today.
For my lunch, the decision was easy; it had to be the pub's excellent fish and chips
A burger and chips for Alex
Although eventually accepted, it took him a while to eat this sausage. "A dog, not demolishing a sausage in a few tenths of a second?" I hear you cry! Well Jim is a fussy eater. He likes to investigate anything new or unexpected thoroughly and properly, normally on what we call his Investigation Mat at home. Silly dog!
Lunch done, and we were back on the road again
And over to Woking to visit the guys. It was so nice to see them settled into their lovely flat. I brought with me a rotating spice rack as a housewarming gift. Every home needs a spice rack!
Good boy Jimmy!
